Hey Governors!

We are introducing you to the 7-Day Team Challenge! We received a lot of questions about it on social media and we hope that this post will answer your questions.

What's new in this Team Challenge?

This new Team Challenge will start on the 12th of June at 9 PM CEST! Let us know in the comments if you have any questions!

THE NEW CHALLENGE SUCKS!  I struggle and work hard and invest hours to achieve diamond level.  50,000 points?  I will never see the inside of a ruby chest.  It is likened to seeing Dolly Parton's chest ... Ain't gonna happen!   Without the ultra spin in the diamond chest, I will never make VIP+.  I will now probably play less because the increased required points to achieve maximum rewards is now totally out of reach for me.  Most of us play for fun.  It will not be fun any more.  I work at work and do not want to work at fun!  My current goals are to play until I reach diamond level.  Those goals are now reduced to play when I want to and as the saying goes, "let the chips fall where they may".  Adding the ruby chest and making it extremely hard to reach will blow up in your face.  Yes, there are people who have nothing else to do and some that are possibly addicted to GOP3 that will invest the additional time to open the ruby chest, but, your average working men and women do not and will not have the additional time.  I bet your total play hours will go down after the new wears off.

So now that I don't care any more, do you wonder how many others have, or will have, this same attitude?  Or do you not care either?

Your new challenge is a joke the only thing you want to achieve is to force players to buy chips, maybe you thought is too much for everyone to get an ultraspin every week when he reaches 10000 points, so you've changed that just for the profit of your game.You're saying that you've changed that, so skillful players can play their game with strategy,and that with these changes you mostly block allin players,i used to be vip+ now i'm vip with 133 millions and i'm simply telling you that there is no motivation for your new challenge,3 or 5  new hats biggest joke of all,diamond and ruby tickets next better joke of the year,anyway your game your rules.

I have been asking people at the tables, what they think of this change.  The people that will talk to me that either say that they THINK they like this change or that they do not know.  I personally do not know.  I have to play within the new system to gain an opinion.  I do not know if I am not going to get an ultraspin or not, each week.  I can earn 15,000 pts a week in 4.5 days.  I am thinking  that I can earn 21,000 points in 7 days.  That means, the Ruby Chest is outside of my reach.  Then again, the Sapphire Chest was outside of my reach, until I stepped up my game.  I have reached the Sapphire Chest for 2 months in a row, until this past challenge, because I did not have time to put into this game.  This is only a game, something to enjoy when you have the time.

The bottom line, I do not know if I like this or not.  I will not know until next week Wednesday, after the 1st challenge is over.  I have had to adjust my play at least 3 times since joining this game in 2016.  That is about once a year, when major changes take place. 

PLEASE REMAIN CALM!!!  Play and see what happens, then make the comments or complaints from experience.

I really like this game.  I like the people that are my poker buddies.  I hope that people will continue to play and remain friendly.  As long as that happens, I will continue to play.

as a player who loves real poker - and than joined the flow in switching to bingo  - i have to say thank you! I hate bingo. I would get to diamond in 2 hours or so - and felt that i didnt earn a thing.  90% of my hands i didnt even see what i had or what the opponents had.

 

Everytime i read how somebody complains that GOP just wants us to buy chips - i think to myself that the complainers are nuts.

For one thing of course GOP wants to sell chips. They need to make a living! But truth be told - i always thought that GOP was giving away way wayyy too much. I took a nick during the winter challenge from $2 to $190m without spending a cent. By the end of the winter challenge I got 5 free ultra spins (1 of them hit for $60m) and tons of mega during that time.  For the life of me i couldnt see how GOP will stay viable if they are giving so many chips away for free.

I actually went and purchased some chips because i felt that it wasnt fair that GOP was giving me so many hours of fun and i wasnt making a contribution.

Hopefully your new system will change GOP back to poker - and hopefully you guys will be able to make a decent living all the while that you give so many millions of people a great outlet to enjoy poker.

 

So thank you GOP team

@Ines : You believe we are so stupid to play a shit game and getting peanuts rewards!!! You strongly believe this and the developers too. I will not play this game anymore. I am VIP+ and got several billions chips. But, we are not idiots.  Censorship is very high on facebook. A friend can't post comments anymore now because he critics the new update.

Now, we must play 7 days on 7, so 365 days in a year to get peanuts rewards. Think twice before put this shitty update. 

I guess what will be next update : 1 millions bronze ticket to get 1 silver ticket. 2 millions silver ticket to get 1 gold ticket. 3 millions gold ticket to get 1 diamond gold ticket. 4 millions diamond ticket to get 1 ruby ticket. 5 millions ticket to get 1 emerald ticket. 10 millions emerald ticket to get 1 platinum ticket. 50 millions tickets to get one ultra.

radiant? May I ask you a simple question? Do you think that the programmers and developers of GOP have a right to make a decent living for their efforts?

GOP is a business - just like a casino is a business.  But unlike a casino - GOP actually gave an insane amount of free chips to players.

You behave like they owe you the free chips. Well - they dont.

I just played in jackpot casino 5 players we all bet and from the flop, and then me and another player continue betting the minimum 200k, i won the hand and the points your game gave me it was 20. when last week taking only the pots was 42 so take your shitty game and put it where ever you like.I forgot to mention that during the game i was on double xp meaning double points so does anybody have any arguments what was the change for? It's pretty obvious that your goal is selling more chips,just try elsewhere to find idiots.

To continue from were i stopped 0 points when everybody folds ? 0 points when 2 players playing and when i bet 200k the otherone folds you think you're the clever ones and the players idiot?I really like someone from the game to explain why in the jackpot casino and i presume to the others in vegas and in strip you have to play with a lot of chips to gain points?

And you justified that by saying you don't like bingo players and you want to support players with strategy ?

Your explanations and excuses for the changes sucks like your game

Ich habe gerade in einem Jackpot Casino mit 5 Spielern gespielt, auf die wir alle wetten und vom Flop aus, und dann haben ich und ein anderer Spieler die Mindestwette von 200.000 fortgesetzt. Ich habe die Hand gewonnen und die Punkte, die Ihr Spiel mir gab, waren 20., als ich letzte Woche nur die Pots nahm Ich habe vergessen zu erwähnen, dass ich während des Spiels auf double xp war, was doppelte Punkte bedeutet. Hat also jemand irgendwelche Argumente, wofür die Änderung war? Es ist ziemlich offensichtlich, dass Ihr Ziel darin besteht, mehr Chips zu verkaufen. Versuchen Sie es an einer anderen Stelle, um Idioten zu finden.

 

Ich gebe dir recht, mir ist es genauso ergangen. Doppel XP eingesetzt und keine Punkte (12) erhalten. So erreicht man nicht mal die Diamant Truhe

Do you understand how gambling addiction works? That this simulates gambling and they use the exact same tricks (by awarding 'free chips' to players) that real casinos do, in order to encourage people to spend real cash and make the free chips they lost back? 

You'd be surprised at how much casinos give away to encourage punters.

Okay, I have completed the team challenge.  I earned the ruby chest on the afternoon of the 6th day.  I feel the game has tightened up, because I see top players loosing more chips.  The very top player looks to have lost about 30 billion chips, but is working his way back up. 

So, the ruby level is attainable.  I think I am a better than average player, but there are a lot of very good players out there at the tables that are better than me.  I am up about 13 million chips from last week.  I received about 10 million chips from opening the chests.  I usually get about 50 million from the chests including using the old Ultra Spin and piggy token.  The bottom line is that I think this will slow the progression of people winning more and more chips, running up the totals.  This could allow grinders like me  to one day get into the top 500 players.  Right now, I am at a higher ranking, having gained 100 places this week, whereas before this change in the team challenge I was stuck at the same ranking for 2 months, because as I earned 50 million chips, everyone else was earning 50 million chips/week. 

Then again, a friend that is a much better poker player than I, has lost 150 million chips during this team challenge, so it could be that trying to earn team points is causing the better players to take more risks.  Three of the best players on my team have lost many hundreds of millions in this last team challenge.  All of these comments are just anecdotal observations.  For all I know, I could hit a wall next week and lose hundreds of millions of chips. 

The bottom line is that without the team challenge, I would not be playing this game for several hours on a daily basis.  Before the change, I would play only 4.5 days a week during the team challenge and log in 4 times a day on the other non-challenge days to collect money and the daily chests, which would take only about 40 minutes a day.  I thank the programmers and the people that maintain the game web site for all of their hard work.  I still find all this challenging and would still play without the challenges and still send messages of greetings to my poker buddies.  Right now, I am trying to send them all Happy Summer Greetings and am only a third of the way going through my 200 poker buddy list.  I have asked people at the same time, what they think of the new team challenge and the players that reply all say that they like the new structure. 

My team FC Bayern has high morale today.  It took a while, but we have a great, happy team with friendly players.  Of course this can change, because twice now, we have had people go off and form a new team, taking a good number of players to a new Bayern team.  I keep looking at one of the two teams and miss seeing those names on my team.  The other team that left and formed, imploded, because they could not meet the high standards they set for membership and none of the people that left FC Bayern remain on that team. 

Thanks again for providing this game server.  I have played on-line games where I invested hundreds of hours, only to have the game server be taken down by the owners, because they were losing money.  So, I hope people do purchase chips.  I will purchase chips if the price approaches 1 million chips/dollar.  I figure that is a good price.  So, ultra spins for $25 works out to 24 million chips on the average spin.  Good deal. 

Mia san Mia!  Bayern uber alles!  Bayern alles immer!

I have just completed the second 7 day team challenge.  I finally spun out the silver gold, diamond and ruby tickets.  Wow, I did not know that the diamond and ruby tickets gave such great prizes!!!  I lost about 70 million chips, but had a piggy token and some good luck, so ended up 4 million at a loss.  Once I opened up all of the chests and spun out the tickets, I ended up 150 million ahead.  Amazing. 

The poker buddies that replied are split between liking and not liking the new challenge.  About 30 of my poker buddies have gone dark -- not playing any more.  So, we are losing players...  I have to say that I REALLY REALLY like the counter on how people did during the last challenge in their profiles.  This is a good way for me to figure out who has gone dark and no longer playing.  It makes it easier to cull out these people that have stopped playing from my poker buddy list.  Thank you for adding that feature.

Looking at the top players, there are tow of them that picked up 3 and 2 billion chips.  Someone that I never noticed before is now in second place.  The other two players that are in the top five are holding their own and have lost about 2 billion chips each. 

All in all, I think that people that are still playing are adjusting and learning how to play within this new challenge.  I have to say that the new challenge, it is more difficult to win, but if you do win, you can spin some great stuff.  I have to say that I like the way things are set-up now.  Thank you for challenging us all to step up!!!

Best wishes!

About the challenge as you may understand it's quite boring playing 24/7 every week every month,it would be much better if you make the challenge once a month for a period of 2 weeks and increase the points of the team and the players for example make team points 500.000 and players points 35.000 but once in a month for 2 weeks.

The way you've changed it soon it will become boring and more boring and in my opinion most of the players won't participate because except from boring it's also tedious.

Then quit fixing hands preflop, for thankers' sake, and make this a fokin poker game, not an auction mechanism.

You've been told a million times, get on with it.

Oh, and unban me from table chat already. So many thankers' mothers to wish to.

I am seeing more and more people losing chips from their stockpiles and more and more of my poker buddies are no longer playing.  Some have taken off for 6 to 8 weeks. 

What I am considering is quitting my team for a while.  This is no longer fun.  I use to enjoy playing and chatting with the people at the tables.  There is no conversation other than the pre-made replies, that I can see and people are more obnoxious and going all in as they try to get more points at the tables.  When they win, they laugh at me for losing the hand.  The people on my team are no longer playing at the level that they were playing before, as seen by our not completing the challenge by Saturday.  It is Sunday and we are 10,000 points away with a third of our players no longer playing for the team.  Some are no longer playing, because they have exhausted all their chips.

Thanks for your feedback @Yamagata 👍. We'll try to forward it to our team so it can take into consideration for future re-balancings.
