Full House Poker Gets Summer Season

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Microsoft revealed earlier this week on the official Facebook page for http://www.trueachievements.com/Full-House-Poker-xbox-3....htm that the Summer Season 2011 Expansion will be arriving soon, as will a title update.

The upcoming title update will bring several fixes and improvements to Full House Poker and was detailed by Microsoft.

• Network Disconnect Exploit: Players that leave a table are now replaced with an AI player, keeping their earnings at the table and correcting several payout scenarios.
• Sitting Out Penalty: Due to players using sitting out as an exploit to get deeper in tournaments we’ve implemented increasing blind penalties when abusing this feature.
• Ranked Game Lobby Timer: Timer resets when a new player joins the game lobby, which will allow for higher populations before a game begins. This will increase the number of 10 player games moving forward.
• Several Localization issues: Corrects character strings in various languages, as well a bug that caused the game to freeze when zooming in on players.
As we noted previously, Full House Poker's Spring Season concluded this past Tuesday. The Facebook page points out that Full House Poker will take a brief break between May 28th and June 1st before returning with an all new Summer Season on June 4th.

Like the Spring Season, Summer Season 2011 will be absolutely free and will contain three achievements. Also like the Spring Season, it will run for a limited period, so be sure to pick up those achievements sooner rather than later!
