In a brand new mobile app filled with unlimited potential and numerous worldwide celebrities, one premiere Olympic USA athlete joined FireFan during the Thursday night NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings where the Cowboys came out ahead in a nail biter 17-15. Almost one thousand players joined 12 time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte’s FireFan League to make predictions on the outcomes of the game being played at U.S. Bank Stadium. To sweeten the pot, VP of marketing and the face of the development company United Games, Natalyn Lewis, also joined in on the fun.
Lochte is only one of many stars who joined in promoting and playing FireFan this week. Also seen was Santana Moss, Marcus Coleman, and even current Dallas star QB Dak Prescott, who will be clearly participating in games other than the Cowboys’ where he is playing every weekend. The game has been gaining in popularity ever since word spread about it among smaller circles in May 2016, and currently, as seen through Lewis’ followers, we can extrapolate that they they already have over a million players in the game. They were on pace to break Pokemon’s download records, and they are awaiting official data from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
This massive success has not been without its hiccups. Talk of lag, bugs, and overall frustrations in executing certain parts of gameplay have been exuded by players from all over. However, people also familiar with Pokemon and other high profile games have stated that United Games’ developers have actually done an incredible job in updating and fixing bugs at an amazingly expedited fashion, even earning the trust of the existing celebrities.
