Superbru 2017 launch plan

We've been beavering away over the last few months building a brand new Superbru site and app, and we're nearly there.

We are modernising Superbru: making it more intuitive, faster and more secure. We want it to be simpler and quicker for you to find what you're looking for: your picks, pool results, leaderboards and more. The gameplay will remain unchanged, but a range of configurable pool features will let pool captains have more of a say on the way their pools operate.

The Six Nations, Super League and Varsity Cup are fast approaching, and Super Rugby, NRL and AFL are not far behind - here is the plan over the next few months:

Week commencing 9th Jan

We will be launching the various tournaments that start at the beginning of February, including:
  • Six Nations Predictor
  • Six Nations Fantasy
  • Six Nations Fantasy Superstars
  • Women's Six Nations Predictor
  • Super League Predictor
  • Varsity Cup Predictor
  • Americas Rugby Championship Predictor
These will be launched with some of the new features built into the old site, to enable people to get pools set up, and to invite people to play. Then we'll do a switchover closer to kick off...

Week commencing 23rd Jan

We are aiming to have an early Beta version of the 2017 site available this week exclusively to members of The General's Club, which will help to iron out any major issues before the main launch.

Feel free to join if you are keen to be involved in the advanced beta.

Week commencing 30th Jan

We are aiming to launch a Beta version of the new site at the end of January, in time (just!) for the busy build-up to the start of the Six Nations. People will be able to switch between the old and new sites to try out the new features, whilst still maintaining access to everything, and we can continue to iron out any teething issues.

Then at some stage this week, we'll switch on the 2017 version as default for everyone.

Superbru app

The new Superbru app, which is going to be awesome, is unlikely to be quite ready for the start of Super Rugby. It will remain as-is for now (with some of the new features built into it), and we'll get it out there as soon as we can.

Thanks for bearing with us whilst we transition to the cool new stuff. If you have any queries or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Looking forward to it. BTW: Will there be API so interested devs (like me) can build Apps for smaller platforms like Windows Phone? (Although most likely only for notifications and similar stuff, mobile version of sites works otherwise very well)

Yep have been wondering the same for some while. Even asked before once. But doubt that is a high priority and nor should it be really. But it can open incredible possibilities. I'm sorry interested in all the behind the scenes stats as I work everyday with big data. What we have here can become an unbeatable sports algorithm. 10 Jan 15:53

In improving the app you should consider revising the Bonus Point criteria. Currently a bru can get BP for being closest to the margin regardless of how far out he is. Perhaps It should only be awarded if within 5 of the actual margin??
19 Jan 07:44

@tomcat, thanks for the suggestion. The Bonus Point rules were previously changed in 2016. Currently the BP is only awarded for picks falling within a 15 point range from the final result (it's no longer regardless of the margin). 23 Jan 10:37

We setup our annual 6N prediction league, however it is only allowing us to pick players in a fantasy format in which many of our gang don't want to do.......is there any way of just having a prediction league like other years ?
2 Feb 08:02

@Thomond as far as I can see you've set up your pool in the Six Nations Superstars game rather than in the Six Nations Predictor game. Try opening the Six Nations Predictor game instead and follow the same steps as before to get your pool set up as intended there. If you need any further assistance, contact us on support@superbru.com. 2 Feb 08:06

@Sean, we have already launched the new look site for the Super Rugby and NRL in beta testing. Have a look at the "Try the new Superbru beta" for more info about that, or simply click the "Try Beta" link at the bottom of the page in the Super Rugby Predictor game to test it out. We're aiming to switch over to the new design as default for the Super Rugby by the end of the week if all goes according to plan, after which we'll be rolling it out to other tournaments too. 9 Feb 07:35

Hi Pete, sorry to hear that you're not digging the new site (no longer in Beta btw). Please get in touch on support@superbru.com and let us know what you're concerned about or struggling with so that we can effectively assist you and help you to find your way around.

Have you had a look at the introductory videos for the new site? Many users have found them helpful to get a feel for the new site's flow. Here's the link to the videos: http://www.superbru.com/news/superbru-2017-introductory-videos 16 Mar 07:07

Why do all of the winners, meaning picking scores, margins, etc, come from South Africa?

Got something to say about this?
