Not much information about the team is provided in the game, but it is mentioned it recently played abroad[5] and has a coach with an either angry disposition or violent temper.[4] If the team's pennant is on the wall, the third entrant on day 18 will comment that he remembers that match and describes it as "intense".[6]

The name of the team is a play on words arse-kickers (people that "kick arse") and Arstotzka.
