While for some of our more experience players the extra colour in the lobby is a slight annoyance, we are hoping these tables become a bit of a beacon to the less experienced players encouraging them to learn more about the promotion and maybe even play some more.
This isn't a complaint by any means, just an observation. While I appreciate the good intentions on the traffic idea (although I find it hard to believe there's people more experienced at being fishes than myself, lol) I sometimes see some of the red tables hosting games while the blue tables are blank...durring time periods when "Happy Hour" isn't actually active. I suspect that the "beacon" will possibly only bring about complaints when they find out they were playing short handed at a table that didn't award them double pts at that particular time whilst they "perceived" because of that "beacon" they would be earning double points.
I was just good naturedly making a "play on the wording im my post" joke about the red in the lobby; I honestly don't care one way or the other and if anything like the contrasting colors of blue, black & red. Just a thought, and like I said, its not a complaint. Me, I'm grateful for any and all promotions I can actually take part in...especially the well intentioned ones.
