    Rigged

    Comparing playing Hold ‘Em professionally to playing Prominence Hold ‘Em is a stretch to begin with. While some players may have bought chips to buffer their stacks so that they can play in the high stakes ring games, there is no “real” money involved in these games. It is a very loose environment in most cases and trying to apply the same playing style you would use at the Bellagio lends itself to seeing bad beat after bad beat. I see a regular cast of characters at many of the $1M/$2M tables after playing this game for several years and I respect many of them because they play smart, tight poker. Bad beats happen so often because so many hands in ring games go to the river. How people don’t get that is beyond me. There is no rigging and the game engine is solid. Either you can handle the loose play from some, or you can’t. It’s that simple. Hell, I play loose some nights just to rankle people. I got dealt four pocket pairs out of six hands the other night, flopped trips on two of those four, and busted AK in a pre-flop all-in race. That’s pretty much a coin flip. The guy I busted called me a hacker, etc... Nope, just poker.

    New to the PP community

    Hello PP community, I have been playing Prominence Poker on the Xbox One for a few months now, but I'm new to the community. I play tournaments most of the time and enjoy the challenge of climbing the tiers. My gamertag is HollowEcho64 Hope to see you at the tables

    The way you turned your life around is inspiring. I play a similar style of poker as you and I play on the Xbox. Do you play tournaments or ring games? Anyway, I enjoyed reading your post. Hope to see you at the tables. BTW, my gamertag is HollowEcho64

    RIDICULOUS

    You are essentially accusing them of fraud. You do understand that's a quite serious allegation?
  9. Why are you expecting that boosts will help you win?
  10. You're saying that the developers are penalizing you for giving then money?? Why would they do that?
  11. Since I stupidly decided to give the developers some real money I CANNOT WIN. Before the boost I could win and got decent cards. Since the purchase I haven’t even come in 3rd in any tournament whereas before I could easily place 3rd at least. This is game is very flawed, I wish someone else would develop a decent casino game!

    Agree 1 million percent! And NEVER buy anything, I’m certain it makes you lose once you purchase something with real money (boosts)!

    RIDICULOUS

    Of course this game has an insane number of three card, two card, even one card outs. Runner runner runner to beat you? Here it comes. Anyone who has played here a lot knows that. But dodging the bad beats and grinding to Diamond is a game in itself. Wish it was better, but it's still entertaining.
  14. Yes we are, 20:00 sharp. Great when you're 1198 and leading ... Back to 1170 (there was 1 platinum on the table). Chance to regain the rank you started with is small I guess?
  15. Ive won and been 2nd in several 10K tournaments the last couple days and especially today I’m noticing, after a full win, I got zero points. Not chips, points.
  16. We’re getting these errors today, 13 June 2019.

    RIDICULOUS

    I don't see this. The game must be rigged specifically against you in particular. You must be in some kind of blacklist.
  18. Yet, I don't. How is that possible? The only possible explanation is that the game is targeting you in particular, and rigging the game against you and in favor of your opponents whenever you are playing. After all, consider that this always happens in favor of your opponents, never in favor of you, according to your own account ("I will miss 11+ outs for 2 hours straight in this game while I watch the same players rip off 2 and 4 outers seemingly every time they play a hand.") If the game where simply flawed and badly programmed, then you would sometimes notice this trend favoring you, at the cost of your opponents. Sometimes you would get astronomically unlikely lucky streaks, winning with really crappy hands, while your opponents will be losing with their picture cards and pocket aces. But according to your own testimony, this never favors you. It always favors your opponents. Therefore the only possible explanation is that the game is specifically targeting you, and benefiting your opponents, whenever you in particular are playing. You must be in some kind of blacklist, for whatever reason. Or, you know, and I know this might sound silly, but the other explanation is that you are just imagining things. Would you seriously think that the game has been rigged specifically against you, so that the allegedly incorrect odds are always against you, never in favor of you? Would you seriously think that you have been put in some kind of blacklist, where you specifically are being targeted for discrimination when it comes to odds? A different hypothesis has been presented a million times already: Prominence Poker is not like "normal" poker for one reason: People don't play with real money here. It's all play money. Therefore they have nothing to lose. And because they have nothing to lose, they will keep playing with hands that any experienced poker player would have folded if playing for real money. When you have 5 other players playing like they don't care how much they lose, the amount of bad beats that you witness will inevitably increase. The problem with professional poker is that you don't get to see how many bad beats there would have been, had players not folded, and kept continuing betting like there's no tomorrow. You don't get to see what happens if someone does a completely crazy all-in with something like a 9-3 off color.
  19. Point being, there is no logic in this game. Bad beats certainly happen in poker, but the math is always the same. Situational hands that happen 12% of the time happen 60 % of the time in this game. It's not like I've played this game once or twice and ran badly. It's a circus operated by a horrible algo everytime.
  20. I'm winning enough,but playing it since start I see the faults in the game..including how the card play works. So much weird ways to get beaten that dont happen in the real world,at the rate it does in this game. Having 80 mill i know my Poker. When as you state it's not cost effective and at the same time i read in other posts that there are thousands of players active each month..then i wonder what it takes to support a game as simple as Poker. And also it's a reminder to buyers of game released by certain companies...that they are not too committed to keep updating the game. You see my point. As theoretically the best Poker game for the consoles,its a pitty that the company do not see the value in showing support for their product. It's not all about the money it's also about the reputation it gives, abandoning the game and its users.
  21. It appears that further development of PP is not cost effective. ie. it would not attract enough new players to make such development pay for itself. Any concerns about the functionality of PP should be brought to the attention of 505games by selecting 'support' and opening a ticket. They, would contact Pipeworks if it were necessary. Complaints about not winning as often as you think you deserve should be kept to a minimum. Although I'm not part of the development team, I have moderator privileges within this forum. I hope this helps.
  22. Since summer 2018 there have been no update..no roadmap..no communication regarding the development of Prominence Poker. Is the game "Dead" from the developers point of view ?? Maybe the (low) income from the game did not justify further development.... Either way,it would have been nice with some words from someone related to the development of Prominence Poker. Thanks in advance...

    RIDICULOUS

    Prominence Poker have not had an update since summer 2018 so the faults in the game will never get fixed. I tottaly agree that the way the cards come out are abnormal and makes for a bad poker experience. No matter how well you play...when the game decide to make you loose..you will loose. I guess the developer just stopped caring bout the game the moment they decided they did not earn enough money. It's a pity and unfortunate for those that want to experience Poker on their PS4...Xbox one or PC.

    Rigged

    WSOP Full House Pro and PP were created by the same people and WSPO fhp was written to run on a XB Gold console. I seriously doubt that the basic logic was altered.
  25. I've been playing poker for 22 years, 5 of them professionally. I've easily seen over 500,000 hands of poker. This game is absolute nonsense. I constantly see the same players winning pots, regardless of their hand, regardless of what is on the board, and regardless of equity and value. I will miss 11+ outs for 2 hours straight in this game while I watch the same players rip off 2 and 4 outers seemingly every time they play a hand. Hands down worst poker game I have ever played. They need to bring back WSOP: Full House Poker. Now that was a great multiplayer poker game.

  27. The advantage is you're not giving away free information. Not that most people are paying all that close of attention on Prominence, but generally speaking in poker it's not a good idea to let people repeatedly see how you play your hands. They'll start to identify patterns in your betting style and have a better idea in later hands what you have before you show them. This makes you easier to play against. show 1 card to get the muck it reward rather than both. Stopping short of spouting off a bunch of unsolicited advice, bear in mind how people are going to react when you show hands depending on whether you're showing good hands or bluffs. It will certainly influence how people react to your bets in later hands.
  28. Pathetic, just pathetic. I've only gotten one single store item out of my last 50 loot cases I think, maybe more. Just chips, chips, chips and only enough to cover upgrading the case. I'm thinking of not upgrading so at least I might get a nickname for something different.
