I’ve won 3 consecutive matches. I’m being asked to decide between “Claim” or “Play On for Bigger Prizes.” What does this mean?
Basically, you have to decide between the sure win versus the possibly bigger win.
3 consecutive wins already allow you to claim P10.00.
If you claim, then you win the P10.00. However, this resets your Win Streak to zero and ends your current Life.
If you decide to play on, you give yourself the chance to win bigger prizes. You can win as much as P1MILLION! However, if you lose, you win nothing. For example: you kept deciding to play on. Your Win Streak is now at 19. Then you lose the next match. Your Win Streak is then reset to zero, ending your current Life. And you win nothing. Not even P10.00.
At every prize threshold, you’ll be asked to decide.
What is “Tournament Mode?”
Matches in Tournament Mode are what advance your Win Streak and allow you to win prizes.
What is “Practice Mode?”
In Practice Mode, you play versus the computer. Your Win Streak is not affected. And you can play as much as you want.
How is my Opponent determined?
You cannot choose your opponent. Your opponent is chosen for you based on Power Matching.
Power Matching simply means that you’re matched versus an opponent with the same active win streak as you. For example: you have 2 consecutive wins. Your next match can only be versus someone with 2 consecutive wins also. Let’s say you lose that match. Your win streak has now been reset to zero. Your next match can only be against someone also at zero.
How long does “Searching for Opponent” take?
It depends on 2 things:
1) How many players have the same win streak as you?
2) How many of them are online right now?
If no one has the same win streak as you, then you may have to wait indefinitely.
You can enter Practice Mode while waiting. Searching will continue even as you play practice games.
If your Win Streak is 3 or more, you can also choose to end your wait and simply Claim your prize at anytime. This will allow you to start a new Win Streak instead of waiting indefinitely.
What happens if I click “Decline” to a match?
You simply return to Practice Mode.
You can practice as long as you want. Simply click “Decline” whenever you’re invited to a match.
What happens if I click “Accept” to a match?
You may have to wait a few seconds for your opponent to accept as well.
A random game is then served up and the match starts.
The match will result in either a WIN or a LOSS for you. A win advances your streak. A loss resets your streak to zero and ends your current Life.
Only in rare instances can the match result in a DRAW.
In the event of a DRAW, your win streak remains unaffected.
What is a “Win Streak?”
A win streak is simply your current consecutive wins in Tournament Mode.
What can reset your Win Streak to zero?
If you LOSE in Tournament Mode
If you choose to CLAIM a prize already
If you OPTOUT
If your account is TERMINATED
Note: Inactivity does not affect your win streak. For example: your win streak is already at 19. You don’t get to play for a month. When you come back, your win streak remains at 19.
How much does Globe Games with Friends cost?
Globe Games with Friends is P5.00/day for Prepaid, P30.00/week for Postpaid and is subscription based.
P5.00 provides you one (1) Life to play in Tournament Mode and 24 hours access to Globe Games with Friends.
Your 24 hours access starts upon successful billing.
Once your access expires, you will not be able to play until you are successfully charged P5.00 again.
From September 23, 2013 to December 22, 2013, first day of tournament is free for first-time subscribers. P5.00/day after. Free 1st day provides you one (1) Life to play in Tournament Mode and 24 hours access to Globe Games with Friends.
Will I be charged P5.00 even if I don’t play?
Yes. Globe Games with Friends is subscription based and renews automatically until you optout.
What is a “Life?”
You need a Life to play in Tournament Mode.
If you win, your Life remains active. Your Life is ended when your Win Streak is reset to zero.
Can I accumulate Lives?
Yes. Unused Lives accumulate.
I still have remaining Lives. How come my Win Streak was reset to zero?
Even if you have remaining Lives, your Win Streak is still reset to zero if you lose. Having remaining Lives simply means you can play in Tournament Mode again.
I have no remaining Lives left. What now?
You can either Practice or Buy a Life for P5.00
What does “Buy a Life” mean?
If you have no remaining Lives and want to play in Tournament Mode again, you can BUY A LIFE for P5.00.
The BUY A LIFE option is only available when you have no remaining Lives left.
My access expires in an hour. If I “Buy a Life,” does that mean that I only have one hour to use it?
No. Whenever you BUY A LIFE, your access is extended such that you have 24 hours to use it.
Example # 1: Your access is supposed to expire at 12 midnight. You BUY A LIFE at 11pm. Your access is now extended to 10:59pm of the next day. 24 hours from your purchase.
Example # 2: Your access is supposed to expire at 12 midnight.
You BUY A LIFE at 11pm. Your access is now extended to 10:59pm of the next day.
You play. You lose. You BUY A LIFE again 10 minutes later. Your access is now extended to 11:09pm of the next day.
In Example # 2, you purchased 2 Lives within the span of 10 minutes. The net effect is not to extend your access by 48 hours. Rather, your access is extended by 24 hours and 10 minutes.
Example # 3, you purchase 10 Lives within 10 minutes. The net effect is that your access is still extended by just 24 hours and 10 minutes.
You have 24 hours to use a purchased Life. However, once consumed, access time does not compound upon your next purchase.
How many times can you “Buy a Life?”
You can “Buy a Life” as many times as you want.
Whenever you lose and have no remaining Lives left, the “Buy a Life” option will reappear.
My Win Streak is 5. How come I can only claim P10.00?
You have not yet reached the next prize threshold, which is 6.
You can only claim prize thresholds you have already achieved. Therefore, even at Win Streak 4 or 5, you can only claim P10.00. Even at Win Streak 7 or 8, you can only claim P50. And so on and so forth.
How can I claim my prize?
When you’re eligible to claim a prize already (i.e. Win Streak of 3 or higher), a CLAIM button appears in My Account and Practice Mode.
Click CLAIM and simply follow the on-screen instructions.
