20 FEBRUARY 2022

Updates / Fixes:

  • Tournaments are here! Automatic tournament management from start to end, complete with cross-lobby notifications containing direct links to the lobby where the games are played, so you won't miss your tournament match when chatting or watching your friends play in other lobbies. Match results are automatically synchronized to the web pages.
  • Upcoming tourney widget in the lobby: Quickly browse the upcoming tournaments and join them with a single click. Time zone agnostic countdown timers are also shown.
  • Tourney topstats board: Basic information about the current tournament, high breaks and latest match result shown at the top.
  • New web pages for tournamens: list of all tournaments, detailed information, join/leave, standings, stats.
  • Switch lobbies tab added. Tournaments are played in a separate lobby so we need to switch lobbies in the game.

  • Qash Box: Collect Qash after the first login of the day and every 30 minutes.

  • When the Top Stats table is not fully filled (like at midnight after reset), the empty slots will have numbers and lines, not only the empty area.
  • Text chat warning added when the player misses twice where the ball on can be hit full ball.
  • Sound effect played when the first ball hit is very thin.
  • Popup window added to explain the Rating Badges.
  • Bugfixes (order of extra badges in player lists, tooltip flashing problem, blocking of invitations reset, cue spinning around at every aim adjustment, chat scroll doesn’t always stick to the bottom for users who use medium size bottom box and when the More tab is selected, @whispering to an offline user will report that the user is not here any more, and some smaller fixes).

There is a separate page with detailed information about the new features.

Full reset of stats and ratings

2 JUNE 2021

With the new version released yesterday, the early test phase is over. Many players were consulted about resetting or not resetting, partly resetting, resetting only the stats but not the ratings and other options and the outcome of these discussions were that the majority of the SnookerQ community wants a fresh start. So we did it.

Good luck, everyone and enjoy your games!
