  • Need explanation!

    Hello guys!

    Could somebody comment my July Open Skill League standings? First of all what mean that green tick in section 'eligible'? Eligible for what? Next> SCORE 85.92 (for one of the tourneys) is that VPPs or something else? And final score 1577.03 what that turns out to? How much should I score to benefit? Thank you.

    Hey grand,

    The eligible column refers to you being eligible to receive any league prize money, assuming you finish high enough come end of the month. To be eligible, you must play in a minimum amount of PSO tourneys in the open or premier league, depending on which one your in.

    Your score that you refer to is the score you earn for playing in PSO tournies. They're added/subtracted from your starting 1500 points to determine where you finish in the league. Nothing to do with VPP's.

    To cash in the open league, I've found you need to score at least ~1800-1900 in order to cash.

    Hope this helps.

      The open league is a scored league for the whle month. Prizes are awarded based on final position at the end of the month provided a player is eligable.

      To be eligatble i think you have to pass the core quiz in PSO plus play in at least 5 games.

      Hope this helps

        Skill leagues

        Hi Grand. You will get the green tick mark when you have played 5 games. This is the minimum needed to receive month end prizes and qualify for the premier league in the following month. Here is the final leaderboard for last month's Open League. This page will explain what everything means.

        The general features of the three leagues and the requirements for promotion or demotion are found here. Go to this page ror a detailed explanation of the soring system for individual tournaments.

        Good luck in the leagues

          Thank you, this helps a lot! So what is that magical VVP? Basicaly I need to earn 400 'points' to finish in money. Thank you for help!

            To get the higher payout at the end of THIS month you need to have earned 20 VPP's LAST month
            If you didn't make them then the field is left blank and you will receive the lower payout depending on your final ranking at the end of the month


            hope this helped

              Thank you for tips, but to win money you need to take 50th place 4-5 times in just one month. Which is really big achievement to me Still I will try!

                Month end

                There are two ways to win money in the Open and Premier Leagues. Each individual tournament has a $10 prize pool. The second is the month end prize. Each month you start out with 1500 points. Your score for each tournament you play is added to that score. At the end of the month the top 2000 in the Open League and 500 in the Premier League share in prizes that could total $44.000. You can find your current position by using the search feature on the leaderboard page.

                You do need to pass the core quiz to be eligible for the mnth end prizes.

                Good luck
