Hope you stick with this schedule now, looks very solid. Originally Posted by mecantplay. I like what you have done with new buy ins and added more tourneys to make schedule more different. I still think there needs to be more mtts in-between the hour slots, waiting an hour each time is no fun and is the sole reason i am not playing on the site. I really don't want to reg mtts at 5pm and by 7pm i am only on my 4th tourney of the night, its too long sessions for how little games we can play.
Is there a way to hide these new satellites from the main lobby? This has just been removed from schedule and obviously no ticket refunded. Spoke with live chat who obviously wouldn't refund me with my ticket.
After much arguing managed to get the issue escalated to the 'relevant department' so should now get a response on what should be a trivial instant refund within 72 hours Always the same delightful customer service that puts its customers on tilt Originally Posted by OurSurveySays. Hey guys There have been changes over the last years that IMO are industry defining and the progress of the MTT part of the site from to now is more than any of us could have imagined.
However there is changes happening in the next couple of months that will be the biggest of all time IMO. More news coming very soon about them. Last edited by Soepgroente; at Hey mate, I think its very unfair to say that our site is where it is at now because of overlays or because of other sites incompetence. There are plenty of sites out there trying. You can say we budgeted well as one of the small reasons perhaps, remember 2 years ago: In terms of changes there is a lot of them, I don't want to go into self praise or say everything is perfect.
About the schedule being "solid" thats what we wanted. Not gimmicks, lots of small gte 4 max and random win the buttons with low runners etc. We wanted quality tournaments throughout peak and to keep improving them constantly i. But most importantly I think which has nothing to do with structures or anything else is trying to bring back the player who likes poker but may not win.
We put a lot of time and effort in getting all of these people to like poker again, and for the live guys to like online poker again.
People gave up on poker booms and Moneymaker effects. I don't think there will be another Chris Moneymaker unfortunately, but if we can make mini Moneymakers who all get 20 friends to play on the site too then that makes the site bigger than we could ever imagine.
But you know what it doesn't work without? But busting my balls and making sure that we kept our word for our promises was very important.
Maybe it would have taken longer to put more mixed games in powerfests, maybe it would have taken longer to make tournaments finish quicker, maybe it would have taken longer to get more variation on buy ins, maybe it would have taken longer for the Oops nearly spilled it.!
So again, just wanted to say sorry if I didn't sound appreciative in my last post, maybe I was a little bit tilted or something, I'm human sorry, but without you guys the site definitely wouldn't be where it is now for lots of reasons.
Keep busting peoples balls, its good! Originally Posted by Gooner Originally Posted by Soepgroente. I know you're done with this thread but I'm going to reply to this anyway. Idiots are always going to be idiots and reading this topic gives me headaches too, but there are some legit things going on as well. First off, to be fair, with the latest updates the current schedule is in a pretty good spot. But the other months it was random change after random change and no clear uptrend, and "industry defining" is just bonkers.
The reason party grew is because of overlays, didn't improve at all, pokerstars got worse and party was the least bad spot to go to if you were sick of Amaya. I think very few people who don't work at party will disagree with me when I say "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king" is a much more accurate description of party's rise in market share.
Is that what you mean by industry defining? Ok, maybe a little bit. Your normal structures are already smooth. Just max confusion with no upside. The software is absolutely in a better spot than 2 years ago, but it's improved at a rate that seems extremely normal to me. Perhaps slightly below what I'd expect. Timofeev made the call.
