Now, Let’s look at The Spike Volleyball Story gameplay first, so you will have a better idea of how you should play the game to win more. 

1. The Gameplay of The Spike Volleyball Story

Now the gameplay of the spike volleyball story is based on the sport of volleyball, but at the same time, it is different from it. Now to understand how it is different from it, you first need to understand how the actual volleyball game is played. In the actual game of volleyball, there are 5 players on each side of the court. So two teams with five players on each side try to score 15/25 points to win.

Now in the spike, there are only 3 players on each team, and the game ends when one team scores 10 points. But the roles are the same as each team has a spiker, mid-blocker/Libro and setter. Well, there are also different tiers for the players in the game so first, let’s look at the tiers and how they affect your gameplay.

2. Players Tier in The Spike Volleyball Story

We always recommend that you always equip the highest-ranking Player in your inventory as the main character, as it will help you win more games and tournaments. Now to equip the highest-ranking Player, simply click on manage players and then press on the star option on your screen, and this will arrange the players from the best to the worst in order (from left to right). Click on your best and then press on set as a key player to change it to your main.

the spike players

Currently, in the game, the players are ranked in 4 categories: S, A, B and C, and there are many subcategories like C+, B-., B+, A-, and A+. The higher the Player is on the rank, the higher his stats will be in the game. You should always try to get players above rank A and S. Also, remember that you can only have 100 players in your team simultaneously. So, if you are about to touch the 100 players mark, then you can also remove some players from your team. 

To remove a player from your team, just click on manage players and then click on the player profile that you want to remove and then after clicking on their player profile, you should see an option to delete them. On the other hand, you can also upgrade the Player’s stats to make them even stronger on the battlefield.

3. Play With Auto-Mode On

Auto-mode is a function in the game that enables your character movement to be controlled by AI so that the new players can easily complete the story mode and get used to the controls in the game. The movement in the game can be tricky for beginners as it requires accuracy and swift actions to execute. 

Now there is one more mode that we recommend you to turn on if you are a complete beginner, and that is the Beginner Mode in the gameplay settings. The beginner mode will automatically do jumps and adjust your run-up or your position when spiking, so it is a very useful setting for players who are just starting out.

To access these settings in the game, simply click on the Settings option on the right top corner of the screen and then in the settings, you should see an option of play. In the play segment, you should find both the mentioned settings.

Now, as we have learned about the gameplay and how you should play the game in the beginning, it’s time to learn about how to upgrade a player’s ability in The Spike Volleyball Story. So, Let’s begin,

4. Upgrade Player’s Stats Regularly 

You might have an A-star player in your arsenal, and maybe you are looking to make him even stronger. Well, in the game, there is an option to increase the stats of the players to make them even stronger. There are 4 stats in the game which you can upgrade. So let’s discuss them in brief,


the spike level up

Attack- Attack usually is the best weapon for wing spikers. This stat gives the players good attack power, which is needed in order to spike harder and with more power. To break the enemy’s defence you need to get your attack points more than the enemy defender’s defence.

Defence- This stat is needed and is very important for the middle defenders or the Libro. The higher your defence stats the harder it is for your opponent to take points through spikes and attack. 

Jump- The jump stat is important for the role of spikers as the higher your points in the jump, the higher your players can jump in the game. Now it’s important as your opponents will try to jump block or body block the ball, and in that scenario, the Player with a higher vertical jump usually wins.

Speed- The speed stat is important for almost every role in the game as the higher your speed, the more time the spiker will get in the air to spike and be more precise. This stat is important as volleyball is a very fast-paced game, and it requires speed.

Steps to upgrade Player Stats:

  1. Open the game and go to the manage player option. 
  2. After that, tap on the Player you want to upgrade. 
  3. A new tab will open up where you can upgrade the Player’s skills. 
  4. Now, You can upgrade the Player’s skills using the gold.
  5. You can upgrade different ability stats of the Player like Jump, Speed, Attack, and defence. 

Note: The Skill upgrade cost is different for every player, and it can go much higher when upgrading the S-tier player’s stats. So, always check your gold before upgrading the player’s abilities. 

5. Complete The Story Mode

We highly recommend you to complete the story mode in the game as it will teach you all the basics in the game, which you will need to progress further in the game. The story mode consists of 18 levels, which you can conquer by getting 3 stars in all, there is also a rumoured level 19 in the game, but it’s very hard to unlock.

The story mode rewards you with coins for clearing a level with 1-2 stars, which can be a good thing if you are looking to get some more coins to upgrade your players. However, if you can clear a stage with 3 stars the game rewards you with volleyballs which you can use to recruit players or summon costumes. So, we recommend you to try to clear all the stages in the story with 3 stars to get the volleyballs and coins if you are looking to get stronger in the game.

Now there can be one more benefit from the training, which is earning coins. Yes, you heard us right. In the game, you can earn more coins by doing training. Before starting the training, you need to keep a few things in mind: turn off the beginner’s mode in the settings and the auto movement. To turn these settings off, just click on settings on the top right corner, and from there, go to play and turn these settings off.

Now the best training that we recommend for you is Blocking training as it is the easiest one to complete so that you can earn a lot of coins easily. 

7. Watch Ads To Earn Rewards

Well, it is a personal preference on whether a person wants to watch ads in a game or not, but in our opinion, if you like the game enough that you can spend money on it. Why not just watch ads and get the premium currency instead?

The Spike Volleyball Story offers you to get volleyballs by watching ads, and it can be up to 25 volleyballs in 1 day; trust us, it’s a lot.
