We have received much feedback regarding our leaderboards, rankings and leagues. This is very helpful and we are always very grateful that you take the time to write down your feelings, opinions, recommendations on Replay, its product offering, player experience, promotions and more.
There are quite a few features and initiatives that we are looking at releasing in the next coming months. Please always keep sharing your opinions and wishes as these directly input on our product roadmap (i.e. what we decide to prioritize on the development side).
On this thread, I’d like to discuss the introduction of 4 new leagues catered for recreational players who can’t necessarily commit to the number of hours required to have a chance in our current leaderboards and leagues. Below is the proposal. Please feedback on it as we will strongly consider it before we release these.
The concept is about 4 new MTT Leagues: Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby and Diamond.
Each of these leagues would apply to one single daily MTT featuring a buy-in of 10,000 chips and a guarantee of 1,000,000 chips to start with.
Each of these 4 tournaments will be scheduled at least 6 hours apart from each other’s, to have at least one playable league for each time zone. Time schedules are yet to be confirmed.
Each league will be featuring two leaderboards as follows:
Weekly Leaderboard taking in account the top 5 player’s performances (out of 7 total tournaments). Prize pool will be 1 Million chips to be shared between the TOP 20 finishers.
Quarterly Leaderboard (12 weeks) taking in account the top 50 player’s performances (out of 84 total tournaments). Prize pool will be 5 Million chips to be shared between the TOP 50 finishers.
The kick rule will apply to these tournaments and remove all sit-out players after Level 3. The Leaderboards will be calculated with tournaments points - using the usual formula - and will award points to 100% of the tournament field.
There are possibilities of expanding these leagues to further competitions in the future, based on how well these are doing. There could be new achievements for weekly and quarterly winners. We also consider having achievements for other existing leagues and leaderboards.
The objective of these leagues is for all playesr to have a MTT league they can compete in on Replay Poker. These new leagues would not have any impact on the existing American, European, Asian leagues and other leaderboards. These might change in the future although in the meanwhile these new leagues would just be added on top of everything.
Please feel free to share your ideas, and feedback. We have in plans to roll out these new leagues in April.
May the river be with you!
