hello,
i've just checking my email and opened one from pso saying "Congratulations on earning your ticket to this month's Premier Skill League" sure that i was well ouside the top 500 i checked my account, and sure enough there's a ticket for the prem league. so i went and looked at my rank in the open : 822nd, as i thought well outside the top 500 that qualify for a prem leaue ticket. so is this be a mistake? or have i actually got a prem league ticket.

Many players qualify outside of the top 500 because many of those in the top 500 don't meet the requirements of 20 vpps or aren't members.

822nd sounds very reasonable.

Also, if you played over 5 in the Qualifier League, you could have gotten in there with a much, much lower qualifying finish. We've had members make it there to the Premier League with a finish in the 1000s and beyond...well beyond.

Enjoy and best o' luck!

Zaine, this is not a test ....lol... can't believe I finished 899 in the Open league and still got a ticket. This means at least 399/899 didn't have the required VPPs(20+) to compete in premier, but now this really sucks because I'm only in it for pennies, oh well, time to get off the PSO $2.50 welfare list I guess....lmao

thanks guys, my flabber is well and truely gasted! i've only earned 30 in jan so will be playing for the low payout as well stakehorse75. as long as this current down swing ends with out too much damage to my bankroll, 150 vpps for the march league is achievable.
see you the tables and good luck

...congrats (I think? ) on scoring the Premier League ticket.

Huge piece of advice here,as it's a BRM leak that comes up every month here.

DO NOT punt proper BRM in an attempt to garner 150 VPP's. That's a path you don't want to start down.

Good luck to all PSO'ers this month.

thanks for the wise words Moxie Pip, i will be sticking to my BRM i am close to having to drop down a level which would make it almost impossible. you're abosultly right, i won't play outside of BRM for extra vpps. besides i'll easily earn 150 vpps in march(for the high payouts in april), with the $500 boost to my bankroll i'll get on the 1st
thanks again and good luck.

On a side note, should be interesting to see how many qualified for the 150+ vpp for good payout in the premier this month (After the vpp changes).
