    The top table is about to get tougher in 8 Ball Pool, with the addition of a new "Cushion Shot on 8 Ball" rule. This is "call pocket" for pros, as you'll need to bank your shot on the black ball off a designated cushion, and into the pocket of your choice. Anyone who's familiar with "indirect" pool, or fancies themselves as a bit of a trickshot superstar, will be right at home.

    This new rule comes in a new tier - Berlin - and will drop on mobile real soon!

    Hi all, just to give you a little roundup of a few things that we released for both web and mobile.

    Edit 08/06/2016 - unfortunately we found an issue with the iOS version of this update, so it was not released yet. Hopefully it will be fixed and released very soon, we'll keep you posted.

    Web

    There's a new web-exclusive achievement in the game, to celebrate the start of Euro 2016. "Golden Boot France 2016" can be earned by winning 2 games in a row in any tier, in the same play session. This means that if you close the game after 1 win, your "streak" will be reset.

    This achievement can ONLY be earned through games won on web, and will only be available for a short time. If you're a completionist, don't miss it!

    Mobile

    The new Berlin Tier, with new "Cushion Shot" rule, is now live! To win in this tier, you have to call a pocket on the 8 Ball, AND the cushion that you're going to bank the ball off on its way in. Find out more here.

    The Light Cue is back on sale. Ramadan Kareem from 8 Ball Pool :)

    These updates also contain several behind-the-scenes improvements, and fix a number of bugs including the "missing buttons" problem for Guest players.

    Finally, a little reminder that we're often testing out further improvements and new features, which may mean that some players may see the game a little differently to others. As always, when we have more news on new features/items, we'll announce it on here.

    The New York Tournament that some players will have seen already is going to be released for all mobile players later this week. It'll be a time-limited tournament, and we'll have some more details about it for you tomorrow.

    Hi all, some more information about the upcoming New York Plaza Tournament, from our blog:
    Hey 8 Ballers! We have a brand-new, time-limited tournament hitting 8 Ball Pool on your tablets and mobiles this weekend, and it’s unlike any tournament you’ve played in the game before.

    It’s called the New York Plaza tournament, and it’s only available this weekend! We’ve started the countdown to launch, but at the end of the weekend it’ll be gone, so make sure to check it out while you can.

    Secondly, the format is a little different to what you may be used to with our other tournaments. There are two rounds, with a huge prize at the end for those players who are skilled enough to claim victory.

    For 30,000 Pool Coins, you can enter Round 1 of the tournament. If you win Round 1, you get your 30,000 Coins back, PLUS free entry into Round 2.

    And Round 2 is where the real prize is at. The pot for winning this dwarfs anything we’ve ever had in a tournament before – there’s a massive 1 million Pool Coins for whoever triumphs in this stage (second prize is 100,000 Coins). You can also skip straight to Round 2 with a buy-in of Pool Cash or an in-app purchase.

    The New York Plaza Tournament comes with its own Ring, which you’ll need five Round 2 wins to get. There’s also an exclusive New York Cue for the winner, plus a trophy for all the achievement-hunters out there.

    So get ready to play 8 Ball Pool in New York this weekend! This is your only chance to grab a big prize, plus the Cue, Ring and achievement that goes with it. Best of luck out there on the table!

    We just changed some of the rules for various tiers with regards to guidelines/no-guidelines on mobile.

    Toronto and Dubai now have guidelines, Shanghai is now no-guidelines.

    Enjoy the game :)

    We've released a new version of 8 Ball Pool on mobile, which adds avatars, new chat phrases, and makes it easier to play with your friends.

    As always, the update may take a little while to reach your mobile's app store - please be patient and don't panic if you see that other players already have it :)

    *WHAT'S NEW*

    AVATARS: Freshen up your look in 8 Ball Pool with new avatars to display on your profile page and during games.

    CHAT PHRASES: New phrases have been added, including the new Emote pack ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    PLAY FRIENDS: Never miss a game: get notified when your friends come online.

    We have also made some other minor improvements under the hood which should make for a smoother game experience.

    We released a small update on mobile today (3.7.4) with a couple of improvements to friends features:

    - You can now see when your friends are online. Check the leaderboard or your friends menu, find who’s online (look for the little green circle), or tap the new Friends button on your homescreen.

    - Get notified when your friends log in for a game!

    If you prefer not to use these features, you can also turn them off in the Settings.

    The festive season is upon us, and we have two big new features launching on mobile today - the LA Championship and Holiday Quests.

    LAC_ss.png

    The LA Championship is a new feature where players can join to win loads of Coins. It will be a seasonal competition that will create a pot out of all the entry fees paid by players and distribute it to the best Top 100 players, depending on their final position. However, Los Angeles Championship uses a completely different way to play. Instead of your ranking being based on the number of Coins that you win, the champion will be decided by the amount of Points you earn. You get Points for every game that you win, and a multiplier if you are on a win streak.

    The Championship is live now and ends on Dec 9th - don't miss out!

    Holiday Quests reward you for completing certain missions in the game. Each week will have a different set of missions, and there are prizes to be earned for completing them, including avatars and cues that can't be found in the store.

    Quests will run through December, and there's new prizes every week.

    Happy holidays!
