Yes. Any type of in game chat?

????  We already have in game chat on Xbox.  Both vocal and text.  Text chat is private, and regular chat may be muted by you.

Well maybe I'm not making sense.... LMFAOxDxDxD!!!

I'm aware of freaking voice chat... I've been playing this game since last summer. I have a PS4 (like I mentioned several times before) and I'm very much aware of the group and private chat options.

What I'm referring to is in-game communication outside of using emotes only. A lot of players don't care to use voice chat. While I think it's a cool and required feature I would rather not conversate while playing poker. It would be nice to communicate with other players on a basic level similar to Rocket League.

If this option is never added then so be it, but some forum participants have brought this topic to the forefront before. While this is a great game I've never played an online poker game that doesn't include "actual" in-game chat.

I see we have had poker cards in our emotes for awhile, but all it has is spades.  Is there an option I'm not aware of to post hearts or diamonds or clubs?  If not will we get those cards, or will we at least get the suits?  All we need is a diamond and heart colored red, and a spade and club colored black.  We can type the numbers next to them. 

Anyhow I like the cards, just wish we had more than spades.

DaWiz,

Could you  please explain the difference between in-game communication and  voice chat during a game.  Or, for that matter texting another player during a game and in-game communication.

Perhaps than we could all be at the same level. of understanding.

Farmer John,

You're making this way to difficult. I hate explaining the self-explanatory.

When I asked the question "will chat ever be added?" I was referring to text chat (pre assigned preferably or manual). I didn't think I had to be that specific, because it's obvious during gameplay that voice chat is already included... it's obvious!!!

Additionally, I've had PlayStation consoles over the past decade. Like I mentioned already, I'm very familiar with the social features offered on consoles. So please understand that I'm not referring to voice chat, direct msg chat, or group chat at all. Additionally, Players rarely use in-game voice chat for several reasons. It's not like I'm playing Call of Duty where I'm coordinating with teammates using voice chat. Poker is a individual game and I personally don't care to voice chat with people. On the PS4 I've might've seen 2-3 players max on voice chat, but most games I see maybe 1 or none.

That doesn't mean players shouldn't be able to relay to others simple phrases like "nice hand", "you got lucky", "what a game", "I shouldn't have folded", "wow", "sitter", etc. What's peculiar is that this topic has been brought up before and the forum leads and veteran participants should, at the least, be able to recall those topics. This is not a new topic so instead of me trying to explain the self-explanatory maybe you can go back into the general discussion archives and find the original topic.

On Xbox, I can select a player at the table and send them a text message during the game and then return to the table.  Apparently this is not possible on PS 4??  Perhaps your issue is with Sony.

I believe the messaging is done via Xbox Live, because I can continue a conversation after exiting PP.  Messages from Xbox Live can also appear in the message center on  Window 10.   Notifications from this forum will also appear on the message center on Windows 10, after going thru the Xbox Live server..

This means that the server for 505 games, and the server for Xbox, and the server for Xbox Live, and the server for Microsoft  Windows and the server for the internet browser and the server for Comcast, all have my individual game running on them.   Then we have all the communication servers working to share functions.

My issue is with Prominence Poker, that's why I'm here. I can also send players a direct msg on my PS4. Obviously Sony and Microsoft operate differently because Windows has a massive install base and Xbox is a Microsoft product. 

You seem like an intelligent individual and I know deep down inside you know what I mean by "in-game" chat. Every online card game has some form of in-game chat. Although, if you choose to be ignorant to the fact download spades, tonk, or any online multiplayer card game on your phone or tablet and you'll see what I'm referring to. Or go play WSOP on your device or PC. Maybe you'll have to see it for yourself. I'm done communicating about this. If PP doesn't want to add simple features to their game to make it better then so be it.

You can send a message to another user through the system messaging feature (assuming the other user has allowed it), but that's quite different from an in-game messaging system.

I thought I was being helpful in suggesting that there was already a way to communicate with players.  Apparently, what you're referring to is something else. 

I really don't think that PP wants to spend the resources to monitor a chat room within every game 24/7.

It can get pretty gross on some of the other online poker sites.

Discussion and debate is always helpful.

The devs might feel like text chat isn't beneficial to the game and I'm fine with that if that's their position. I just think, in a general sense, that people like to communicate when they participate in any activity. Currently, voice chat and emotes are the only form of communication in this game. I think the emotes are great and I hope they add more, but voice chat is a hit or miss.

I played 2-3 games yesterday and no one was mic'd up in any game. One game I played I actually plugged in my headset and it was weird being the only player mic'd up, especially knowing people can hear me through their tv's. I typically mute other players if I'm not mic'd up. Keep in mind that every console controller has a headset jack and most people have at least one (cheap or premium) headset in their possession, but in this game a majority of players aren't using them. I would feel comfortable being mic'd up and direct messaging people if I was playing with my friends in a unranked game, but that's not the case with ranked games since we're playing random players.

Like I mentioned in a older topic, the devs can have "pre assigned" messages if they're not in a position to supervise chat. I like the chat options in Rocket League. They have pre assigned and manual text chat. With their chat options you can opt out of manual text chat and just see pre assigned text chat. 

Personally I think text chat would be a great addition along side emotes. Some ranked games last over an hour and while the graphics in this game are superb just staring at the screen for long periods of time can be less engaging.

What exactly is the difference between a text-based chat and voice-based chat? PP has support for latter, and it isn't monitored. People can mute other people, and that wouldn't be any different in a text-based chat.

Ostensibly text-based chat would be logged, and if somebody reports somebody else of inappropriate behavior, there would be consequences.

Proving inappropriate behavior in the voice-based chat could be more difficult, unless that's saved as well, which I highly doubt is being done.

I don't do social media, for a verity of reasons, but I will defend the right for other people to make inane comments to complete strangers.

I just don't want a poker game interrupted or slowed down while "atta boys" are express over each hand amongst strangers.

I agree 100%. If PP implements a quick chat (pre assigned text) players will not have to worry about trolling. IMO, quick chat is better than no chat. Quick chat will not slow down the game bc players won't have the option to manually type messages.

IMO, quick chat also will not overwhelm the user interface because it doesn't have to be an actual chat box. The "chat area" (in the bottom right corner) would become transparent when there's no chat activity, and players can use one of the currently unused buttons (or cpu keys) to see all the chat activity. On the PS4 controller the R1, L1, and touch pad is currently not being used in PP.

I posted an example below from RL. I always use RL as an example (even though I'm not that good lol) bc they do a lot of things right and I think PP has the potential to make this game a must play for all poker fanatics. In the video you can see that I'm using quick chat fairly easy and at the end I show some of the chat options.

Would you all consider adding unranked "speed play tournaments" with a shorter timer and faster blind increases?

Similar to the current quick play matchmaking?

Just a thought....

One of my friends stumbled upon this game on Xbox One.  Our entire circle of friends have since joined and are having so much fun playing this game!  Great work to the developers!  

I'd like to see better friend management.  Or a friendlier "Friend" system.  Ability to invite a friend to your current table.  Create an actual friend lobby for us to gather in then we can choose a game/style.  The way it is now, you have to setup a casual game and then invite your friends.  Never can seem to find a 1000 dollar tournament table (Don't hate, I'm new...baby steps.)  Matchmaking as a whole could use some attention to make it easier for a group of friends to meet up and get some games going.  

Bigger idea I'm sure others have suggested is to apply this same style of gameplay to other casino games.  I'd like to see "Prominence Casino" with your bread and butter poker tables but would love love love the addition of BlackJack or other casino card games.  I realize this is a major undertaking but you've done so well with Poker I'd love to be able to take bankroll over to similarly styled blackjack table and mix it up from time to time.  

Love the game and all the hard work you all have put in.  Love it!  So much fun!  Thanks!

give rewards based on the highest rank reached, not current rank at end of season.  this way ppl won't just stop playing ranked as soon as they reach diamond.  there's no excuse for this, it's pathetic.

 

PLO.  7 card stud.  badugi.  baduci.  badacey.  3 card brag.  omaha h/l.  5 card draw.  2-7 triple draw.  tahoe.  pineapple.  ranked HORSE tournaments.  ranked 8 game tournaments (or 9 game or however many games you'll have).

 

elimination blackjack tournaments would get everyone addicted.  I don't even like blackjack, it's a dumb, simple game.  but those tournaments are intense.  they had those on Ultimatebet dot com before the site got shut down and I couldn't stop playing them.  look up how they work or take my word for it, they're incredibly fun.

 

faster animations.  28 F*&^ING seconds between the last action of hand #10 and the first action of hand #11 if 2 ppl go all in???????????  20 seconds if everyone just folds to the big blind??????  WTF is wrong with you?  the L1 button does nothing, how about it checks an "enable faster animations" box that if everyone checks, it just skips the animations b/c obviously no one at the table gives a f*&^, as they've all checked the box.  half a minute between player actions is ridiculous, you don't even give us that much time to think about a move (thankfully).  I love the idea of ranked poker, but holy hell do you waste my time.  you know you can just have the "last hand results" shown WHILE THE DEALER IS SHUFFLING instead of letting us stare at an unchanging screen for 5 seconds and then waiting for the cards to be dealt.  DEAL THE CARDS FASTER.  everyone will appreciate it.  I guarantee you that no one will come here complaining, "OMG WHY DO I GET MY CARDS SO FAST?  THIS ISN'T VERY REALISTIC, YOU KNOW.  I WANT TO WAIT AT LEAST 28 SECONDS BETWEEN THE END OF ONE HAND AND THE START OF THE NEXT."

 

how about an automuck option?  it's hard to ask for that politely, it's 2017.  if I don't want to hold down the joystick and press the x button every time I win a pot if I don't want to waste YET ANOTHER 5 seconds then I shouldn't have to.  you can't know how hard it was to restrain myself here, dealing with r*&^*&s is extremely frustrating.  this is simple s*&^.

 

or, you know, you could waste even more of our time with this brilliant idea:  when we win the pot, we have to press L1 to stand up, then lean forward using the joystick, then press and hold X to collect a stack from the pot while holding it down and pulling the joystick back to add it to our stacks.  after pressing and holding X and pulling the joystick back 10 times to collect each stack out there, THEN the next hand is dealt.  this process shouldn't add much more than 2 and a half minutes to the end of each hand.  I think it'd be a really awesome addition consistent with the rest of the bulls*&^ I have to put up with.

Welcome to PP.  Congratulations on your first post.

 What compels you to trash everything?  Just don't play the game, then everyone will be happy.

I'm sure the developers will be sympathetic to your complaints if you litter your post with condescension and swearwords.

If you want fast-paced online poker with no bells and whistles, there are plenty of those around. Just make a google search for "online poker".

On the other hand, other people enjoy the flavor of something that resembles more a real-life game in exotic locations. If you want to just speed-game, then as said there are plenty of other poker games out there.

Nice first post, evidently you have issues with patience.  This is a free to play poker game and nobody forced you to play this.  I play this poker game exactly for the relaxed pace they have,  it's more realistic to me, especially after a fast paced stressful night at work.  If you want lightning fast poker try Pokerstars or Fulltilt they are also free to download and most times are compatible on mobile devices.

right, so how about my idea of making it even slower?  I just love how ppl with the deck can use f*&^ing emotes to slow the game down.

I love seeing myself take a drag off of a cigar on my deal instead of putting the next card out, that's fun stuff.  more ppl should do the magic trick emote every time they're about to put a card out, it only adds 12 seconds to each of their deals, more if their char decides to take a drink before or after the emote instead of putting the card out.  if I plan to play a cash game for a while, I'll keep exiting and entering them until I get a venue that has an NPC dealer to eliminate the odds of these time losses.

I bought a chain just to eliminate the odds of having to see myself mess with my item when I should be acting.  it sucks that during an event like Happy Hour I feel the need to switch to something else.  so do you know what would be REALLY nice?  an inherent 25% boost for items like the skull, this would give ppl reason to have them out, justify their costs, and speed games up in the process.  (I mean 25% for the primo skull boost instead of 20%)

I'm sure that would be just way too hard to code properly though b/c also, Fanny Pack Friday and Affiliation Wednesday simply don't work properly.  maybe you just can't get those boosts if you have the 100% boost already in effect?  I don't see how I'm ever not going to have that boost going though, I seem to get more than 1 day's worth of the 100% boost each day.  A lot more.  I've played for less than a week and have over 2 weeks of boost left.  or maybe Affiliation Wednesday just doesn't work for Hearts Rank 1?  and maybe for Fanny Pack Friday you have to be wearing a tourist outfit other than the one that you're provided with at the start?  I didn't buy a new tourist outfit to check though, as it seems pretty likely to me that it's just bugged seeing as how Affiliation Wednesday didn't work either.  these seem like really complicated fixes.  how long's this game been out now?

let me guess, Suave Sunday doesn't work either?  that's the day I started the game on, so I couldn't afford a suit then.  I don't think I'll buy one, as cheap as they are, seems like a really bad gamble that the thing actually works.  I'd give it maybe a 1% chance of working.

 

EDIT:  I'm playing on PS4, I'm sure it works on PC.  no one's that incompetent.

I have a lot more complaints actually, it would just take all day to voice them and it isn't worth it b/c nothing's going to be done.  for example:  babysitting the "FINDING IDEAL MATCH" screen really sucks.  no, I don't want to find just any match and I don't want to quit looking for the ideal match after less than A SINGLE POKER HAND'S LENGTH OF TIME, especially after I've already got 3 matched ideally.  would it be so hard to add a simple option for players who only want ideal matches?  and can the ideal match finder actually work?  when 3rd place ranks you up 95% of the time, I don't consider a matchup that causes a rank loss for 3rd to be "ideal."   if opting for an ideal match is going to be possible (and it is), then I shouldn't have to sit there staring at and interacting with a loading screen to do it.  you think I'm obnoxious?  how obnoxious is it to make me do that?

yeah I know I sound like an ass, but no I'm not going to spend time editing this to try and sound more polite.  why?  1) that'd be less honest.  2) I actually am restraining myself somewhat.  3) it isn't worth my time.  I don't choose how frustrated I am with certain things (this sentence is an example of editing for politeness that I'm just not going to expend the effort for most of the time).  does that make sense to you?  all I'm willing to do is apologize for being as ass but enough of my time is already wasted for too much editing, THANKS.  and thanks for putting up with me.

I'd like the ability to play in specific venues of my choosing. At the very least, allow players to set a "favorite" and/or "least favorite" venue, with your preferences being taken into account when looking for a game. I even have an idea for how to pull this off without dividing the playerbase at all: Make every table cross-venue.

Ok, so 6 avatars gather at a table, and all 6 of them see the same table... But why does this need to be? Why can't person A see the Kleaners while person B sees the Clubhouse? As long as everyone is in the proper seat, what difference does it make? I guess it could get confusing between tables with dealers and tables without, but you guys & gals are good at your jobs, I'm sure you could come up with a solution for that.
