Introducing Club Pogo Tournaments

Club Pogo, the latest and greatest feature is here! Tournaments lets you join or start a team of up to 5 members, then compete in up to nine of Pogo’s most popular games for Ribbons and glory.

The fastest way to get started is to either create your own team or look for a team that has less than 5 people and click the blue Join button. If you see the words Ask to Join in the blue button, you will have to wait for the team Host to approve your request to join.

We recommend that you ensure your Team has chosen games to play before you start playing one of the 9 games. Here’s how to check that:

When you find a team to play on in the list, check for color icons to the left of the Join button. If none of the icons are lit up, like shown below, no games have been selected.

A team that has games selected would look something like this, depending upon the number of games selected:

If your team has no games selected, the host will need to go to the My Tournaments tab:

tourney1

Once there scroll down to the very bottom of the page until you see this:

tourney2

Click the Join Tournament button below the game you wish to have your team play in. Now any scores you earn while playing that game will count towards your team’s score.

 

Here’s a quick rundown on how it all works:

  • Join or start a team.Forge new friendships, or strengthen old ones! Teams can:
    • Be open to all;
    • Require approval for new members;
    • Be invitation only.
  • New tournament periods start every other week, Thursdays at 5 am PT.
  • Each team can compete in 1 to 9 of Pogo’s most popular games.
  • Whether you play alone or alongside teammates, your efforts will contribute to your team’s overall score.
  • As the tournament progresses, your team may climb up or down the Leaderboard, from Bronze to Gold. You can make a difference up to the last minute!
  • At the end of each tournament, your team will earn a Ribbon for each game played. On top of that, you’ll earn personal Ribbons that will stick with you, even if you switch teams.

The first tournament just started, so hurry up and find your team!

Join the Fun

Happy gaming everyone!

Q: Will there be more or different games?

A: We may add more games in the future, depending on demand and other factors.

Q: Can a team name be changed?

A: No, so please choose carefully. Once you create your team’s name it cannot be changed.

Q: How do I leave a team I’m currently on?

A: A player can leave team from the Manage Team Settings menu.

Q: Why did it auto-add friends who joined my team?

A: By default there is a “add team members to Friends List” button. You can uncheck this if you like.

Q: How does my team select games to play?

A: The Team Host is in charge of selecting the games that the team will play. Please message your team’s Host to make any recommendations. In the Tournaments tab the Host can click on the My Tournaments tab and if they scroll down towards the bottom of the page, all of the available games will be listed. There they can click to Join Tournament or Leave the Tournament for that game.

Q: What are the thresholds for Gold, Silver and Bronze?

A: Gold is the top 10%, Bronze is the bottom 60% and Silver is everything in between. You can earn 1 Ribbon for each game you’re team is competing in. If your team has no score for that game, you’ll earn no Ribbon. Good luck!

Q: How are teams sorted?

A: Teams are sorted by the number of Ribbons won. Teams with more Gold ribbons are listed first. Since this is the first tournament period and no teams have earned Ribbons yet, they are sorted alphabetically.

Q: I want to check out how the points I just earned impacted my team’s score. What’s the easiest way?

A:Visit the Tournaments page. If you don’t want to leave the game you’re in, click on a different tab below the game, like the “Chat Rooms” tab, then click back to the “Tournaments” tab. The score is only updated after you complete a round or session in whichever game you’re playing.

Q: How many points does my team need to get to the next level?

A:Visit the Tournament page and scroll down the leaderboard until you find the last Gold-ranked team. This is the current requirements to get Gold, but it will change depending on how many teams are competing in that game, and what the top 10% of teams have currently reached. Your team level can change up or down throughout the tournament period so keep and keep working on increasing your score!

Q: How do I learn more about Tournaments?

A:Click on the “?” button on the Tournaments page for all the rules.

Q: If I leave a team what happens?

A:You’ll lose any progress you made in the current tournament period, and so will your team. You retain any personal Ribbons you earned, and you’ll be free to join or create another team.
