The series has consistently achieved critical and commercial success. eFootball has also been used in esports. eFootball.Open is the esports world championship held by Konami annually since 2010. In association football circles, eFootball has a longstanding rivalry with EA's FIFA series.eFootball is the second largest association football video game franchise after FIFA, with the rivalry between the two franchises considered the "greatest rivalry" in the history of sports video games. Listed as one of the best-selling video game franchises, the eFootball series has sold 111 million copies worldwide, in addition to 400 million mobile game downloads, as of December 2020.Konami also created a similar mobile game called PESCM or Pro Evolution Soccer Club Manager. The Pro pes 22 Evolution Soccer series strives to emulate real football. In addition to these modes, there is an editing one where the player can fix the series' greatest problem, poor licensing. The Master League mode, gives the user control of a team of user's selection. Originally, the players were all generic-fictional players, however this later changed giving the user the option to change the settings and choose to play with default players. This added a new depth to purchasing players, adding value to an up-and-coming youngster whose abilities rise dramatically and creating a trade-off if the player buys skilled but declining veterans. Fans of the series often make "option files" and "patches" which modify all player names into those of their real life counterparts, as well as including transfers from the latest transfer window and, occasionally, altered stats of more obscure players whose in-game attributes do not precisely replicate their real life skills. "PES Stats Database" and "PES Stats" are examples of websites that are dedicated to creating accurate stats for players. More experienced gamers often use "patches", editing the actual game code and modifying the graphical content to include accurate kits for unlicensed teams, new stadiums, and footballs from Nike, Inc., Puma, Umbro and Mitre, as well as more Adidas balls. Patches are technically a breach of copyright, and are often sold illegally in territories in the Middle East and Asia. This is thought to be due to the fact that Konami failed to get the rights to the German Bundesliga, and is usually made into the Bundesliga or another league of one's preference by patch makers. This feature does not appear in the Wii version of the game . Pro Evolution Soccer series traces its roots to Goal Storm . There were two new commentators, Peter Brackley and Trevor Brooking, but this aspect of the game was criticised for the commentators' inaccuracies and tendency to speak over each other. The licensing was much the same, but infamously all Dutch players were called "Oranges" , because Konami did not hold the rights from the Royal Dutch Football Association, for use from Dutch players; in fact, plenty of other football games of the period with FIFPro licences also saw this happen to them , following Netherlands' unsuccessful campaign at the 2002 World Cup qualifiers.
