Pure Pool Snooker Tournament

Snooker Championship

Pure Pool now has snooker DLC so it's time to organise a tournament for all who enjoy knocking their balls around on the baize!

 

 

To begin with let's find the number of players who want to partake in a snooker league. If you're in, let me know here and I'll invite you to the exclusive PlayStation Community set up to organise our games. Alternatively, send a friend request or message to MVP_QW with the word 'snooker' in it. :)

 

Right now, I'm planning for a weekly best-of-three match with the amateur aiming line, which makes the game easier without it being quite as easy as Hustle Kings was. All skill levels are welcome; I hope we'll have some fun games together.

Signed up to the PS4 community. Not sure when I'm free to play though. Keep finding myself with less and less time to do anything.

I got an invite from QuietlyWrong otherwise I wouldn't have known!  I'm up for it...

 

There are issues with snooker on Pure Pool...online can be ropey but anyone thinking that this will be as easy as snooker in Hustle Kings on the PS3 is sadly mistaken...the camera angles in this game that VooFoo give you make this a lot harder.

 

I have spoken to them about it and logged it as a feature request on their forums and on their support but you cannot center the view on the object ball which makes casual or amateur snooker play on this very hard.

 

Here is a video of what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9szccCPUEM

 

But given I prefer no lines anyway the issues above do not matter...but they do for those who do use lines.

 

Anyhoo get the players signed up!

I don't want to commit to a league right now but if you ever have a knockout i'm up for being another number.

 

Game is good but i've ran into one issue a few times.

 

 

Bit of a big one that.

 

Anyone got the 147 yet?

Yeah, that's a glaring error. I wonder if the code for 'put the ball on the highest available spot' is in there but not being called because of a logic error. It seems odd that you'd get the second half of the rule right... And I don't recall it being that bad for Hustle Kings. Then again I don't recall what HK did any more.

 

I've also seen the AI take ball in hand after being snookered off my foul. To my mind the AI handled the cue ball and should have been disqualified.

 

What most winds me up about Pure Pool though is the limited range of spin you can apply to the cue ball, especially as I specifically remember complaining about it while trying it out with VooFoo at their offices prior to the game's release. Nick may remember the same. It's impossible to take a normal break in this game, something that was possible in HK.

 

On the plus side, the trophy for going in off the black is one of the finest ones ever named (for anyone who is familiar with John Virgo's commentary): 'Where's the cue ball going?'

 

HK on PS3 was tweaked periodically following feedback; one can only hope the same will happen here. In the meantime, at least it's a level playing field.

 I do remember us both saying that but I also remember there reply...they say you can put the same amount if spin on the cueball in Pure Pool as you can in Hustle Kings but the visual indicator in doing so is not so extreme in that you cannot raise the cue as high or move the tip towards to the outer edge of the cueball like you could HK.

 

I disagree with that premises though as I simply struggle to spin the ball or break as the pros do in snooker.

So yeah, I'll join in. :)

 Given the camera angle issue no-one will get a 147 in the near future...

Thanks I've not been well since the weekend so haven't turned the PS4 on (or checked this thread) for a while but will definitely add you when I next do. :)

Hope you don't mind but I told VooFoo about this Event and they liked it...they have posted on Facebook and Twitter about it so you may have more folk popping in here.

 

They also requested updates when the event gets going so I can leave that to QuietlyWrong if he wants to update them on the tournament...I'm happy to help out if required.

 

Be cool to get some videos of our competition play too!

All sounds cool. Tomorrow (Tuesday 27th October) at 8.30pm (GMT) I'll try to start a party from our PS4 'Community' so we can see how it all works and get some practice in.

 

I'll create a proper league (one match per week) soon, depending on whether the new attention brings in a stream of newcomers. :)

 

Newcomers, if you want to join, just let me know here. :)
