You may have already seen this new feature teased on our Facebook and Twitter pages – but now it’s time to give you all the details ahead of leagues landing in 8 Ball Pool!
Leagues, huh? What’s that?
Leagues are an addition to the Weekly Competitions that were released on 8 Ball Pool mobile earlier this year. They’re another way for you to win a ton of Pool Cash and Pool Coins but, best of all, each league will be customized for each player.
How will that work, you ask? Read on!
Welcome to My League
You’ll find the My League tab in the Weekly Competition section of 8 Ball Pool. In here, you’ll see the other 8 Ball Pool players who make up your league. These players have been assigned to your league based on your own level in the game, plus your own coin balance – the game will match you up against players similar to yourself, to make the playing field as fair as possible.
We wanted to give more people more chance to win – so your league will have a much smaller number of other players than the Country or Global leaderboards.
In your league, you’ll be ranked on your total weekly winnings. Every week, the top 3 players in your league win a prize.
Climb the leagues for bigger prizes
There are 10 different league tiers for you to play in, each one based on your level. So if you’re just starting out in 8 Ball Pool, you’ll be playing in the Brass League, but if you’re a level 20 player you’ll be competing in the Gold League. Get yourself into the Level 100 Club and there’s 200 Pool Cash to be won for topping your individual league!
Remember, each week you’ll be competing against other players who will have similar level and coin balances to yourself. You can climb into a higher tier by earning XP and levelling up: you earn XP every time you play a game, but you get more for winning than losing. Winning tournaments earns you the maximum XP, with more XP for winning a high-ranking tournament than a low-ranking one. For more information about experience points, levels and ranks, check out this blog post.
Here’s some other important bits you’ll need to know:
- All In matches don’t count towards the total weekly winnings
- If you play the same opponent more than once in the same week, only the winnings from the first match are counted.
- You can only move into a new tier at the end of a week, even if you level up during a week. You’ll stay in that tier until the week comes to an end, then be in the higher tier the following week.
Claim your prize!
At the end of the week, come back to see if you’ve finished in the top 3! You need to open the app to claim your prize – so don’t miss out!
