To celebrate a record number of months in Games with Gold (3 months of free balls!!!), and some of the hilarious comments seen on Twitter we felt some new content was needed, so as promised there is another update waiting in the wings, currently due for release today, which includes a NEW Online mode, in the form of multiplayer Online Leagues! (YEY!) So you might have us, again, but there's new content for your to knock around with! 

We hope you agree the Leagues are a great addition to the game, giving gamers the ability to work your way up from league 10 to 1 earning coins as you go to spend in game. The difficulty level rises as you climb the Leagues, as will your opponent skill level so act quick to get to the top, but you must play with skill to keep your position for fear of relegation! The idea behind the leagues is to provide Pool Nation fans with another free challenging online mode, with less focus on fast paced gaming and more on player skill.

Leagues aren't the only new addition, we now have Online Leaderboards (another woo hoo please) where you can check your global ranking against a number of factors including online wins, cash earned, experience points and more. What's more you can now add players via their gamer cards, to give you the ability to challenge the best Pool Nation gamers to a game! 

There is also a new atmospheric bar venue to play in, which not only introduces characters into venue for the first time in Pool Nation, but also further reduces online loading times. Gemma Jessop discussing the new room: “We have tried to keep this venue simple; the primary aim was to add atmosphere and life to the venue so I hope this is a welcome addition too.” This online room is used in both online mode including Play for Cash and Leagues. 

Here is a summary of the patch notes as below: 

  • New Online Leagues 
  • New Online Leaderboards 
  • New Online room with characters to add atmosphere to the venues as requested, and also to speed up load times online. 
  • And of course General Bug fixes - thanks again to the community for your feedback on this, keep any issues found or suggestions raised coming :) 
  • Improved table lighting
  • Sounds/music normalised throughout the game
  • Various crash fixes and stability improvements
  • Baize colour picker in Artistic Pool, so you can now change the table colour, add particle effects and more! 

We are continuing to collate your feedback and ideas and will continue to support this game going forward, I'd like to say a special thank you to all those who messaged, tweeted and emailed in your ideas/suggestions, if it has not made it into this build I'll be sure to get it in a future update, it won't be missed. There's lots more to come... 

Thanks for listening 

Gem :)
