New Ranked Season Brings a Few Helpful Changes


Nex

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=

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?

You will always maintain your Rank within the Affiliations upon switching to other Affiliations.

So feel free to switch it up as you see fit.

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

 

Was this a 4Player Tournament?

Payouts are as follows:

Place 2 Players 3 Players 4 Players 5 Players 6 Players
1 100% 85% 75% 70% 60%
2 0 15% 25% 30% 25%
3 n/a 0 0 0 15%
4 n/a n/a 0 0 0
5 n/a n/a n/a 0 0
6 n/a n/a n/a n/a 0

I also feel this might be the reason no one is playing platinum tier  if ur going to lose money for winning no point in playing  sat in platinum tourney lobby for 20 min and the most we got was 3 players   plz correct this error  I cant advance til rectified

Hi @Hoozer Dattie

The reason the payouts were like that is because you were bounced down tiers until you found an open lobby. We bounce tiers when players experience longer wait times. When you tier bounce, the buy-in changes to that of the tier you find a game in. So you must have ended up in a silver lobby, with the 10k buy-in. You only ended up putting up 10k chips (silver) and not the full 50k(platinum).

We are working on drastically improving the matchmaking system, so expect changes with this exact thing in the near future.

I fell that when I go into a tourney as a plat tier and get placed with lower tier players I am constantly getting the shaft as far as card I get in hand as well as the ones that fall to the board, I can go the whole tourney and only win 3 4 hands the whole time. I have seen the Platinum tier about 7 times since this new season has started and its absolutely annoying being dropped down to gold or silver tiers losing to junk players that really don't know how to play beyond going all in every time. The last tourney I played tonight was forced all in at a table of gold's as a platinum had pocket kings so felt really good about it, lost to a one card straight to some moron, that same tourney I was only able to win 3 hands within at least a 2 hour span. As far as the payouts and entries go, if you're a platinum and placed in a gold tier table it should not be a 50000 buy, but if it is you should get platinum payouts regardless of table placement. But I love poker and play this game daily just wish the bad beats and card randomness was better, I always see the same cards together and multiple times in a row. Anyways good job on the game keep up on the tweaks.

I was wondering in the ranked tournaments how the points work? Coming in third place with a -1 or a 7. And first place with a 26 but -36 if you scratch first. How do you make your points? Is there a chart or system on how it works?

Why is it now only 10 points for a win in head to head ranked games, that means to rank up you have to win ten head to head on the trot, I haven't lost one yet after winning three so don't know how much you lose but only winning 10 is ruining what was a great game, also waiting upto 20 mins for a ranked tournament is horrendous, I can understand head to head having ideal games etc but why not just let the first 6 players I  the queue play a tournament?
