New Feature: Leveling System
Dear friends of the Palace,
It is time at last: We officially released the leveling system!
Of course, the leveling system comes with levels reached via experience points and new game contents as a cherry on top. That creates a new competition! And you can adjust the game’s looks to your wishes level by level.
Now, you automatically collect experience points for each finished table. You love your game and regularly play a table? That will show soon! Also, winning deals additional experience points!
A table’s further characteristics can affect the experience points as well: They depend on the game and include the number of fellow players, your progress at the table, the bet, and a few custom rules.
You will reach each level with certain numbers of experience points. Fellow players see which level you are at, and vice versa. At the end of every table, you will see how many experience points you gained and if you reached a new level.
And in your own player profile, you can see how many experience points you need for the next level-up! Additionally, you can choose if you want to play using your own table and card backs only.
By default, the game will display the selections of the table host, if there is one. If you do not like that and would rather use your settings, just turn the option host table off.
New Game Contents
With levels reached, you unlock exclusive rewards in the game: We are thinking Chips, frames for your profile picture, skins for the tables at the Palace, and individual patterns for the back of the playing cards. These are unprecedented options! You get all these contents for free – by simply taking part in the game and collecting experience points.
What Will Change in the League?
To make it short: nothing.
The leveling system is a new and separate feature. You will collect league points, Chips, and stars just like before. And the experience points will top it up!
By the way: By popular request, our games now come standard with tables using the custom rule Training. These tables do neither affect the league nor the star rating. This way, you can practice risk-free at these tables without worrying about decreases in your stats. Nevertheless, you will still gain experience points at these tables.
We are incredibly glad to provide this feature to you! And you, the player community, helped to accomplish that directly. We had two beta tests in different games: One in Skat, Solitaire, and Rummy from October 21 to 29, and another one from November 4 to 9 just in Skat. This way, we could identify any bumps with your help and smooth them. For this, we are very grateful!
The Leveling Sale
We celebrate the new leveling system with a sale until Sunday, November 29, 2020! For now, your favorite products, Chips, for example, are available at a discount of up to 30% at the Palace!
At this point, we can tell you one thing: Have fun! We hope the new feature will bring you joy! And let us find out who will level up fastest.
We are always happy to receive praise and constructive criticism in the blog comments or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Greetings and wishing you a good hand,
Your Palace Team
