What are Leagues?
By playing regular Battle Royale matches in the Match Poker Online app, you will automatically be placed into a League.
Your League is initially determined based on your performance in the first five matches you play each Season – known as ‘Placement Matches’ – in conjunction with your IFMP Rating.
This will determine which of our five Leagues you will be sorted into. See below, in order from our lowest league (Dove) to our highest (Phoenix):
Players score 3 League Points (LPs) for winning a match, 2 LPs for placing 2nd, 1 LP for 3rd, -1 LP for 4th, -2 LPs for 5th and -3 LPs for 6th.
Players’ scores are aggregated throughout a season.
Players are given Bonus Points every day. Bonus points will either double the points gained from placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd, or they will offset points lost from placing 4th, 5th or 6th.
Players are unable to have more than 15 Bonus Points at any one time, so they will lose the benefit of gaining additional Bonus Points if they are not used.
Key thing to remember with Bonus Points: Use them or lose them!
Whilst a player’s score resets when they move between leagues (see Promotion & Relegation below), they retain all Bonus Points that they haven’t yet spent.
Promotion & Relegation
Players are not restricted to the League to which they are allocated. Their performance throughout the season is taken into consideration.
This means that players who outperform their peers in a particular League will get promoted to the next League up (during a season), while those who fail to meet the level of play of their peers will be relegated to the next League down.
Being relegated or promoted will mean that your score resets to zero. Bonus Points do not reset to zero.
Each Season of our League Competition begins on the 1st day of each month at 00:00:00 GMT and ends at 23:59:59 GMT on the last day of each month.
Players may play as many matches as they wish. All matches are counted towards League performance.
All players who finish a Season in the Phoenix League will be given a medal recognising their efforts, and will be granted entry into the next World Cup Playoffs. Medals can be tallied for multiple Seasons, but each player can only earn eligibility into the World Cup Playoffs once per World Cup Event.
The overall winner – that is, the player who has the highest score in the Phoenix League at the end of a Season, will be awarded the League Champion Trophy.
