March Update

These are release notes for the March 2018 update, released February 28 on Steam and March 23 on Xbox and PS4.
New hourly event Fight Club - double rep on weapon items. Cigarette packs and lighters are now included in Havana Nights. New rep reward Oops - for when you folded what would have been the winning hand. Boosts can now be purchased in the shop. Bankroll and Ring Game leaderboards now represent public games only, not private games. Avatars will no longer play with their table item during the player's turn. Multiple table item refill gifts from another player will now show in one consolidated message in between hands. Adjusted a number of annoying or repetitive ambient sounds. Upgraded loot cases are shown as upgraded on the loot case screen. Various fixes to improve stability and reduce disconnections. In tournaments, the Dead Button Rule affects how the button is moved and the blinds are handled after any players that posted the big or small blinds leave the game. The big blind moves forward to the next active player, the small blind moves to the previous big blind, and the button moves to the previous small blind. If the small blind is on an empty seat, no small blind is posted. A player can effectively be on the button two or more times in a row when the button lands on an empty seat. No player will pay the big blind twice in a row, and no player will avoid paying the blinds.  This had a bug that occasionally caused players to be the big blind twice in a row.  This is now fixed. In ring games, the Simplified Button Rule is used.  This occasionally causes players to be the big blind twice in a row, or to be on the button twice in a row, or blinds to skip over players.  This update on XB1 and PS4 prevents repeated big blinds, but does not address the other issues.  The next update will address those issues by switching to the Moving Button Rule.  That change is already live in the current Steam version. In rare circumstances, the game can allow you to send an invalid bet to the server, which then rejects your action and causes you to fold. This has been mostly fixed on the server end - instead of rejecting your action and folding, the server will attempt to do what you intended.  The full, proper fix is on the client side and will be in the May update for consoles.  The client-side fix is currently live on Steam. You now get an extra 5 minutes beyond your normal sit out time to rejoin your game after being disconnected. Check out the Roadmap to see what's coming next!

New Quality of Life Update for PC, Xbox One & PS4

We've released a brand-new update for Prominence Poker on PC, Xbox One & PS4. Big thanks to our community for giving us feedback and reporting any issues they came across, it definitely helps!
Check out the list of changes below:
Adjusted loot case chip rewards and upgrade prices to match store prices. Upgraded loot cases will never award duplicate items or nicknames. Ranked tournament rating calculations are now based upon relative tier instead of precise relative rating. The winner close up at the end of a hand is now shown only if the hand is interesting enough. There are now roughly triple the number of win/lose reaction animations. Some improvements to the nickname screen to make it more usable. Lobbies now show a background image representing the chosen venue. "Waiting for next hand" is now shown when you join a ring game in progress. Fixed a bug that caused the bankroll shown while at the table to not immediately reflect the chips earned from a challenge. Fixed a bug that caused the community cards in the HUD to get stuck showing the previous hand's cards until new cards are dealt. Fixed a bug that caused the daily cut timer to be inaccurate and misleading. Fixed a bug that caused the daily cut spinner sound to repeat forever. Fixed various cosmetic bugs in the shell. Many bug fixes to reduce server disconnections and improve stability. Fixed a bug that caused your bankroll not to reflect your ranked tournament chip rewards immediately after claiming them. REP received from sending gifts to other players used to be random. Now it's 10% of the gift purchase price. For example, if you buy a gift for someone for 150,000 chips you will receive 15,000 rep. Fixed a bug that caused some instability during ranked tournament matchmaking. The all-in close up is now shown for everyone at the table, not just for the player going all-in. However, it is only shown when the situation is interesting enough, which is not very often in practice.

Steam: A Recap of Recent Hotfixes for Prominence Poker

Since we released the new Diamonds affiliation we've been looking through the forums and addressing your feedback as it comes up. 

Here's an overview of the minor patches that released over the last couple of weeks.

Loot cases will award items only for your current gender Improved messaging around trying to join games with an insufficient bankroll Fixed a couple of rare crashes 7/12/17

This update should fix the inability to rejoin a 6 player ranked tournament after at least one player has been knocked out. It also fixes a very rare crash on the game results screen. And those of you who have negative hands remaining on a table item boost should find that you now have more than zero hands remaining on that item, after re-Entering Prominence.

Quick Play Comes To Consoles In Today's Prominence Poker Update

Those of you wishing you could dive into a game immediately upon firing up Prominence Poker should be pleased with today's update. Along with a handful of minor fixes and tweaks, we've added a Quick Play option to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.
Here's how it works:
At the top of the Main Menu, you'll now see an option called "Quick Play." If you click that option, Prominence Poker will add you to the first available game with minimal wait. By default, Quick Play will attempt to find tables with buy-ins that are 5% of your total bankroll, but if you'd prefer higher stakes games, you can change your Default Buy-in in the Game Options menu to any level from from 5% to 80%. 
As always, the team behind Prominence Poker relies on your crucial feedback, so give Quick Play a try and let us know what you think!
