Pokerstars VIP Changes announced today
They have introduced a new VIP level called chromestar, and the requirements are going to be, from Jan 2013, as follows.
Bronzestar - Default VIP level
Chromestar - 100 vpp's per month
Silverstar - 500 vpp's per month (Down from 750 vpp per month)
Goldstar - 2500 vpp's per month (Down from 3000 vpp per month)
Platinumstar - 7500 vpp's per month (No change)
They have also announced some prizes for 5m and 10m lifetime vpp's, some stuff about limo's for supernova players at the PCA, and upgraded rooms for all SNE going to the PCA.
They will also let you kind of bet on your yearly VPP earnings, you can invest some FPP's and say whether you are going to hit 100k, 200k or 300k VPP's over the year, if you stay on pace throughout the year Pokerstars
will reward you with cash bonuses (i think he said that)
Pretty good news for micros players imo, bound to be more fish around with that little incentive to hit 100vpp per month, and also some fish who may now stick around and try to grind silver every month. Much easier to earn silver and make 1.5 fpps per vpp next year, which will add a little over the year to a lot of people.
