Meet the World’s Best Cornhole Player Profile: SPR+

In May we kicked off a public beta test of new player profiles that include a “Scoreholio Player Rating” and history of games played. Thanks to those of you who gave it a shot, shared your feedback and showed patience as we’ve fine-tuned the way SPR moves up or down after every game you play. It’s not perfect yet, and we’ll continue to optimize it over time, but there’s no other system that does a better job of quantifying cornhole players’ skill level and ranking them…bar none!

But if you know us, you know that’s not enough for us. Frankly the bar for innovation in the cornhole space is set so low that we don’t just aim to step over it, but pick it up and use it to pole vault to whole new heights. When competitors mimic what we’ve done a year later, we try to take it as the “sincerest form of flattery” while using it as fuel that keeps the Scoreholio train chugging down the tracks miles ahead of anybody in the space.

During our beta period we’ve been tweaking and tuning the algorithm behind SPR, addressing lots of concerns that came up, listening to what YOU want out of an upgraded player experience, and have come up with something we really think you’re going to like: SPR+!

What’s Next? SPR+

Our new premium player subscription, called SPR+, removes display ads from the app and lets you see and do a whole bunch of cool stuff.

Some of it will be familiar to those of you who’ve been part of the beta program. For example, you can:

  • See detailed stats about your own play including games won and lost, points scored and given up
  • See how you’ve been doing over time with a comprehensive record of all games played, and recently with a visual indicator of wins/losses over your last ten games
  • See how players rank globally and within your own club

But check out the cool new stuff you can do!

  • Search and filter the history of every game you’ve played, so you can see how you’ve done against specific opponents, for example.
  • Edit your name and how it appears in leaderboards and rankings
  • Set your home club so it doesn’t change even if you play a bunch of games with some other club
  • Search/filter club and global rankings to find a friend, or your nemesis, or see how everybody named Billy stacks up!  You can even see another club’s rankings by filtering by their name in the global ranking.
  • Within those rankings, click any name to view any other players profile including full stats and their game histories which are also searchable.

And this is just the beginning!!!

We’ll make sure the free version of our app always meets the basic needs of anybody who wants to throw bags, but over time we’ll be adding to SPR+ exciting new capabilities that ratchet the player experience to entirely new levels. What’s that mean? We’ve got lots of ideas, but you tell us!

If you’re an organizer on a paid upgrade plan, SPR+ is part of the package. The rest of you will be able to see and do all of this for just 99 cents a month, or ten bucks a year. We think that’s a lot of value, but if you don’t care about that stuff, carry on! All players will still be able to see SPR and win percentage, along with non-searchable club and global rankings, for free.

We hope you like this enhancement to our software. It paves the way for lots of really cool stuff we’ve got in mind, but if you have ideas please let us know what you’d like to see us add to SPR+ or our app in general.
