A trophy is a trophy and other new features

December 31, 2009


Merged our daily tournament prizes (palm trees) in with the trophy cups. Now a tournament win is the same no matter when you play the tournament. If you liked the palm trees you will be able to view your trophy cups as palm trees by clicking on yourself in the lounge and then on the trophy cups.

Also added a tournament fix to make activities for the current tournament easier. Instead of clicking Tournaments / Future Tournaments / Todays / Check In, you can now just click Tournaments / Check In. Same with Sign Up, who’s signed up, and Withdraw.

Noticed we have a lot of ex-zone players at ecribbage that are trying to find each other so we added an ex-zone badge for all you ex-zone players. If you used to play at the zone, let me know what your username was and we’ll add you an ex-zone badge.

I also added some new menu items:
Goodies / What’s new at eCrib
Goodies / eCribbage Facebook Group
Goodies / eCribbage on Twitter
League Play / How does League Play Work

League Play Lounge and some new partners tournament features

December 30, 2009

V2.45: There will now be another new lounge to play in called the League Play lounge. League matches don’t necessarily have to be played in this lounge, but it is a separate location to help organize league matches and play the league matches here if desired.

The other new feature is when trying to find a partner last minute for the partners tournaments. It has been a struggle for players to get both partners to withdraw as singles and then sign up together. Now you can click on a players name in the Tournament lounge and click the button “Check in with them”. If they accept this will automatically withdraw both players as singles and check them in together as partners.

League Leaders and League Wall up and running

December 23, 2009


2 new features as of this morning, the League Leaders works so you can see which League Teams are on top.

Also you can now use the League Wall to contact opponents, leave messages, and organize matches.

No more quitting games against HAL early

December 7, 2009

It has come to my attention that some players have been quitting games against HAL early in the game if they have a bad hand. Now at anytime if you abandon a game against HAL, you will lose ratings points when the game expires.

Also fixed more problems with partners tournies, so we will be having a lot more of those coming up.

Stay tuned for a preview of the new Kings Cribbage Board coming.
