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!
 

New Ranked Season Brings a Few Helpful Changes

A new season of Ranked Games in Prominence Poker starts in just a few hours, but before you all start attacking the leaderboards, we'd like to let you in on a few of the changes you'll see during the new season.
 
 
 
 
First off, our seasons have been extended. Instead of a single month, players now have two months before the leaderboards reset and start a new season.
Second, we've heard your feedback and have changed the points necessary to reach each ranked tier. This should make it easier to break into the higher tiers. Have a look:
Tier                       Old                         New
Bronze                0-1199                   0-999
Silver                1200-1399            1000-1099
Gold                  1400-1599            1100-1199
Platinum             1600-1799            1200-1299
Diamond              1800+                    1300+
 
As always, we'll continue to evaluate your feedback and make changes to the Ranked Games system, so please, let us know what you think, either in the comments below, or in the forums: http://www.prominencepoker.com/index.php?/forums/&%2Fforums%2F=

What makes you passionate about working on Prominence Poker?

The entire team is passionate about making Prominence Poker the best game they can, and the passion is contagious. Also, this is the first project I’ve been the QA lead on so it’s been a big opportunity to learn and progress in the game industry.

Meet the Team is a regular feature in which we interview members of the Pipeworks team working on Prominence Poker to give you a brief introduction to the people working behind the scenes to maintain and improve your favorite poker game. Today, our subject is Geoff Rich, Art Lead.
     
Can you give us your name and title?
I am Geoff Rich, and I am the Art Lead on Prominence Poker.
 
Where are you from, and how long have you been working in games?
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and I’ve been with Pipeworks for a little over six years. I’ve been working professionally in the games industry since 2006.
 
What have you worked on in the past that people might know?
Before Pipeworks, I worked as a contract artist for a number of different clients. Some of the big ones were for Gearbox on Borderlands, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and Brothers In Arms: Hells Highway, and for Microsoft on Kinect Adventures.
 
Can you tell us what you do on the Prominence Poker team?
As the Art Lead, my job is to oversee all aspects of art production and the visual style for Prominence Poker. I work directly with the studio Art Director at a high level to set the visual style and quality bar for the project and manage a team of talented Character Artists, Animators, UI, and Environment Artists who do all of the hard work to make the game look great. I also work directly with the Leads in the other departments to ensure they get everything they need from the Art Department, and that my Artists get everything they need from the other departments.
 
What makes you passionate about working on Prominence Poker?
The Art team here at Pipeworks is incredibly talented and tight knit. Getting to work with these folks every day is a pleasure, and we’ve really made the development on Prominence Poker our own -- which is something anyone would be excited to continue working on.
 
What would you like to tell players about the future of Prominence Poker?
I’m really proud of all the work our team has put into Prominence Poker, but there’s plenty of room to expand the world of Prominence and the games we play within it. We love to hear what keeps bringing you guys back to the table and that feedback regularly enters into our development discussions and meetings, so be sure to let us know what you love, and what you’d like to see next!
