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=

Q: Has the earn/loss potential of points remained the same? Has that scaled at all in relation to the new tiers?

Points remain unchanged. The tier changes make it easier to break into higher tiers given the current point system.

Thanks for the reply. Has the final score calculated at the end of a season changed? Is it still this?

For now, we are awarding players the mean of their rating and the starting rating.

Yup, everything remains the same, except that you no longer need as many points to reach higher tiers, and the season is extended, so you've got more time to accrue points. We hope this will help populate the higher tiers more.

Just to let you guys know, on the xbox one version it says the season ends in 58 days. Should look in to fixing that

The season does end in 58 days. We extended them to two months, and since February only has 28 days in it, this season will be slightly shorter than the next seasons.

Wait so every season is going to be 60 days after this? You guys take A step forward and then 3 steps back I swear.....

Not necessarily. Some will be slightly longer, some will be slightly shorter, because again, our seasons are tied to the months on the calendar. If a month has 28 days or 31 days, it makes a season slightly shorter or slightly longer. 

We could have gone with an arbitrary "each season is exactly 30 days" system, but then a ton of people would be unnecessarily confused by seasons that start a few days before or after the first of the month (and continue to grow increasingly unaligned as time goes on).

These are very welcome changes!

I'm just curious, for the achievement/trophy hunters out there, if one were to reach the Diamond tier at the end of the season, would this also unlock the achievements for the lower tiers? I think it should.

I've already gotten Bronze and Silver in the last two seasons respectively, and my goal is Diamond this season. If I end up reaching it, It would be quite hilarious (but also unfortunate) to have to then throw games on purpose and wait 120 days to get both the remaining Platinum and Gold tiers.

We do too. Fortunately, it does.

I'm a bit upset at losing the bankroll rating I've been working on since the game first appeared on Xbox. My wife is even more annoyed since she was up to roughly 450th place.

I got another Katya at spades rank 2. Maybe you can change that to another item? Do i get another katya at rank 3 and 4?

With 6 Player Tournaments having a length of up to 1+ hour per game, we felt that a 1 month season would not be long enough for players to grind through the ranks before the reset.

Longer season length means more time to get higher ranked means more/better rewards.

Why does a tournament with a 20k entry fee,  only pay out 60k?

If I'm at the max tier at rank level 4 on clubs,  and since there's no rank 5 yet, will that reset if I change affiliations, or will it stay at the max when I come back to clubs?

It will award you all of the achievements/trophies for that tier and below.

Ok that makes more sense. Any word on updating the Billion chip achievement? It's insane and the reason why a lot of people I know wont play the game.

Really like the changes that have been made. Hoping to see a wider variety of cosmetic items in the shop though. Other then that, been having a blast!

Love the game but there's a glitch that has killed me in so many pots it's insane. Anytime two people have a situation where they have the same two pairs , they don't go to the highest kicker , they just split the pot. Please fix this

seems the rewards for winning 1st 2nd and 3rd place should be a bit better if your paying so much to play in the platinum/gold ranked games
