Why not be an OIympian?
You too can be an Olympian - you don't have to even break a sweat or spend hours in a gym (although a little of both won't hurt).
Please join us on another Olympic journey in January. Come play with us to gain a medal for your profile, see your name in lights on all leagues main pages, earn an Olympics Badge, and win some valuable YEP Prizes.
The Eliters Olympics are open to all premium members and based on a Quarterly seeding.
All Tournaments participants will be awarded points based on each tournament ranking as follows:
Winner 11 Points
Runner-up 8 Points
Semi Finalists 2 x 6 Points
Quarter Finalists 4 x 4 Points
9th to 16th 8 x 3 Points
All others 2 Points Each
The ONLY way to gain one of these medals is to PLAY in as many leagues as possible. The more you play the more points you accumulate. You don't have to be the best player in any league. Playing 10 Olympics tourneys and accumulating 2 points per league - that is still 20 points! Odds are you will get more than 2 points. Look at the statistics; it is quite possible to do well even if you are not the greatest player in that particular format! The more you play, obviously the better you get. Besides, you will meet more wonderful Eliters and have fun.
Points will be accumulated for all Games and the top 3 Players (Gold, Silver and Bronze Medalists) will be awarded additional Bonus Prizes as follows:
Gold Medalist - 1000 YEPs.
Silver Medalist - 750 YEPs.
Bronze Medalist - 500 YEPs.
Gold Plus Premium Members will get the Bonus with a Multiplier as follows:
Gold members receive 2x the Olympics Bonus Prize (2000, 1500, 1000 YEPs)
Platinum members receive 3x the Olympics Bonus Prize (3000, 2250, 1500 YEPs)
Diamond members receive 4x the Olympics Bonus Prize (4000, 3000, 2000 YEPs)
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medal

Want to improve the Olympic experience and gain some competitive advantage? Play some regular tourney games in the leagues you intend to play in as an Olympian. There is usually a large increase in players in the hour prior to the Olympics - and as much as a crash course helps when you are not particularly familiar with the game, it is far better to play one or two games in the days preceding the Olympics.
Although, it is not encouraged we realize that players will frequently enter an Olympic tourney with no intention of playing. Please let the TD know via EM that you won't be there - that way the tourney can progress at a reasonable pace instead of having timers round after round, which increases everyone's frustration.
If you are not a Club Pogo member and want to play in a Club Pogo league - just ask the TDs or Admins - they will always help you out.
Hope to see you in the January and future Olympics.
