Ranks & Experience Points (XP)
What are Ranks and Experience Points?
You collect Experience Points with every game of Bejeweled Blitz. As you play and score more points, your accumulated Experience Points will let you achieve new Bejeweled Blitz Ranks. You can compare your Ranks and XP with your friends on the leaderboard.
Why am I starting at zero XP; I've been playing for a long time?!
If you haven't played since we started tracking Experience Points on Facebook, we don't have a way to tell what your Experience Points would have been from your past games. If you've been playing the PC version of Bejeweled Blitz, your Experience Point total will follow you over to Facebook. Points accumulated on Facebook and PC versions will be aggregated together.
This feature is new to the iPhone, so if that's how you usually play, you should notice your rank increasing!
If I have to quit a game early -- at 48 seconds for instance -- will I still get the XP I earned up to that point?
Alas, Experience Points are calculated at the end of each game, so if you leave early, you won't get any Points for that game.
Does XP affect my coin total or my high score?
XP does not directly affect your coin total or your weekly tournament leaderboard score, but by collecting enough XP to reach a new Rank, you earn bragging rights, cool titles, new Key Stone slots (at certain Ranks, to the possible total of three slots), and special Rank Rewards (premium Mystery Treasures!).
Why does my XP Reward look like it's actually subtracting from the XP I have?
In Bejeweled Blitz, we refer to XP in terms of how much you need before you gain a new Rank. Therefore, when you receive XP, you will note that the number displayed for XP in your stats or Game Over screen goes down--because the number is displaying how many points you must earn to reach the next Rank. It's a countdown between Ranks, so the diminishing number means that you're actually making progress toward your next Rank Reward.
How many Rank Badges can I earn?
You'll earn new Rank Badges for the first 100 Ranks.
How many Ranks are there?
There are 181 Ranks with unique names. You can continue to earn higher Ranks after 181, but we ran out of cool names at that point.
