We've got a lot of feedback from all of you asking to open games earlier.
Unfortunately, the app doesn't let you start playing until the game you want to talk about is actually active. So you can't engage in any pre-game smacktalk. This probably has to do with the medal system that rewards you for multiple comments during a game, but it would be nice to incorporate pre-gaming in some respect.
This was from a review in appolicious. While we understand that some pre-game trash talk is always good, we also want Oleboo to reward the folks who are watching the game. So we decided to come up with a new point system and a new way to open games.
Starting today, most of the games will be opened hours before they actually start. Those of you who want to ole or boo the teams, you will still earn 1 point per shout. You'll also enjoy the usual 4 shouts to start with, each of them regenerating after 5 minutes.
Now, if you shout while the game is actually happening, you'll score 3 points per shout, and 2 points everytime someone else does the same thing, within a minute.
Basically, you have much more chances to be the MVP of the game if you participate during the game, than if you just do the pre-game trash talk!
Let's see how this goes, and don't hesitate to send us your feedback.
