Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback & questions to our recent blog – Why Do Rank Borders Move?
We have reviewed all your questions and are responding to the most frequently asked questions about the rank system.
Please take a look! If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team.
- Q: Is there only a percentage of users who can achieve +0, +1, or +2 on a given day?
- Q: What is meant by “Engagement” in the blog?
- Q: How much Support Points is each Item worth?
- Q: How much does each Item move the meter?
- Q: Can the history of the meter be made available to users?
- Q: I am a viewer, and moving Rank borders can make it feel like my Items are worthless if the broadcaster does not achieve their goal. What should I do?
- Q: I understand the Rank System better now, thank you. But it is still hard to be competitive sometimes, and sometimes I don’t want to be.
Q: Is there only a percentage of users who can achieve +0, +1, or +2 on a given day?
On the Rank meter, broadcasters will compete with other broadcasters who are in the same Rank, or a similar Rank (like C1 & C2). It is true that not all broadcasters can achieve say, a +2 score, and that users must be represented in all sections of the meter.
However, the exact percentages of how many users can achieve which position is rather complicated and often changes depending on Rank and other factors. For this reason, we cannot disclosure exact percentage amounts.
But, it is still correct that the broadcasters who achieved the highest amount of Support Points will be the ones who receive +1 and +2. The Rank Meter provides rank borders to show what amount of Support Points is needed to compete with other users and achieve the goal.
Q: What is meant by “Engagement” in the blog?
On Pococha, Support Points are generated directly from the Items that viewers send as support.
When we describe broadcasters with high amounts of engagement and support, we are referring to this metric! You can learn more about how Support Points turn into Engagement Diamonds by reading our FAQ here!
Q: How much Support Points is each Item worth?
The amount of Support Points from each Item is determined by multiple environmental factors during a broadcast.
For example, not only does the number of Items being sent matter, but also the total number of viewers who have sent Items.
Consider the following 2 scenarios.
Scenario 1: 1 viewer sends 1 Item that cost 1000 Coins.
Scenario 2: 10 viewers each send 1 Item that cost 100 Coins, totaling 1000 Coins.
In the above example, Scenario 2 would create more Support Points for the broadcasters even though the same amount of Coins was sent by viewers. This is because there were 10 viewers sending Items, instead of just 1. So, you can see how there is no normal value for each Item.
Q: How much does each Item move the meter?
Each Item moves the meter by the amount of Support Points it generates!
If an Item generates 1,000 Support Points, the broadcaster’s position on the meter will increase by 1,000 points.
Q: Can the history of the meter be made available to users?
We’re exited to hear that users are passionate about tracking the history of the meter to help them succeed!
We display only the current daily meter because we want users to focus on today’s meter! Each day is different, and should be tackled differently by broadcasters and their Families.
However, many broadcasters take it on themselves to manually track the meter history. For example, some top broadcasters will record the daily meter numbers onto a sheet of paper. Then, they can use this information to work together with their Family to create some new strategies!
We appreciate your feedback, and will take it into consideration for future features and updates.
Q: I am a viewer, and moving Rank borders can make it feel like my Items are worthless if the broadcaster does not achieve their goal. What should I do?
Remember, the broadcaster still earns ALL Engagement Diamonds from viewers’ Items, regardless of their performance on the meter.
Even if they do not achieve a goal on the meter, the broadcaster is still earning all the normal support and Diamond rewards. So viewers’ support is not worthless!
It’s important to remember that Pococha is a game where viewers and broadcasters work together to achieve goals through competition. Sometimes there are victories and sometimes there are loses, but through both of them the Family can bond and become stronger.
Q: I understand the Rank System better now, thank you. But it is still hard to be competitive sometimes, and sometimes I don’t want to be.
Pococha is a platform for creators who want to increase their support by being directly competitive. There are many other platforms where the competition is in the background, but here on Pococha we have decided to bring it out in the open.
On Pococha, creators and their supporters can bond & grow together through the ups and downs of competition.
Pococha broadcasters know they can use the Rank system to help rally their supporters around a main goal, and work together to achieve that goal. So, a Pococha broadcaster should be ready to be competitive at all times.
A broadcaster and their supporters is like a sports team. Each day, they go into the game with the mindset and determination to win. Even when there is a loss, they work harder and win the next game.
A broadcaster is a type of influencer that requires lots of constant and continuous interaction with viewers. So, it is very important for broadcasters and their viewers to take mental health serious! Try taking some days off so you can work harder on the days that matter!
We encourage broadcasters to utilize Freeze Passes in a strategic way to best benefit the Family. If there are days where the broadcaster does not want to be competitive or does not want to broadcast, a Freeze Pass can be used!
Broadcasters can create strategy with their viewers. For Example, a broadcaster may use a Freeze Pass the day before an Event, so their supporters will be able to save their Items and use more of them during the Event!
Thank you for all your questions!
