We all have tons of ideas of how to improve the site, the only problem is with regulations going forward, there is no point for US friendly sites to improve.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

+1000 to Hollister

REGS PLZ MAKE SOME NOISE BOUT THIS NONSENSE POST HERE N BUG SHANE ON SKYPE

There's the 20+2 15+1.50 and 3+.30 super turbos now all with 15bb start stacks and the standard rake. Wtf??? You changed the insane 100+9 to a 50+3 which is 5.5% rake and leave a giant 9% rake on all these tournaments with the same structure? Why am I paying $2 for a 20+2 fo that lasts for 4-5 hours and $2 for 20+2 15bb super turbo that is done is 30 minutes or w/e.

Also really think all these new super turbos tournament should follow the structure of starting 2k @ bb20 liek the 10.60+.40 super turbo $500 gtd.

If people want to play push/fold you have 6m and 9m hypers (not like these tournaments are getting more than 30 people lol just a fwe sngs combined)

If you're going to leave them with the allin fest 15bb structure then CHANGE the rake

50+3 is still redic, the $100 6man hyper is 96.50+3.50. I go from 10bb start to 15bb and I have to pay almost the same rake as the $100 even though it's half the buyin? Almost makes as little sense as the unbeatable 9% rake on the lower buyin supers

I refuse to play these because of the 10% rake and 90min late reg. I actually love the 15bb starting stacks though and would play them if the rake was in the 4-6% range and late reg was <30mins.

Not true at all, and tournaments are one of the areas we can address the fastest.

On the back of the recent changes to the tournament schedule I have the tournament team taking a greater interest in everything that gets posted here so they can evaluate everyones suggestions and try to implement some.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

I mean the rake is the same on tilt for their SuperTurbs, so I don't really see a problem with that. The 90 minute late reg is ridiculous though. 30 would be ideal. People buying in for 1bb and tanking to make the money starts to kill the game fast, especially when it's at the FT, when say 5 get paid or something, and a new 1bb stack pops up every minute.

I'd also make a lot lower buyins on the STurbs to start, just to get people use to them. People who played on tilt already know all about em, but newer or recreational players just see 15bbs and go "not for me".

And make them a knockout too, recreational players like knocking out players they play with a lot. Even if they get only 30 cents on a 3$ buy in, it's still something to them. People still talk about how they knocked out Huck seed and got a shirt from full tilt or whatever.


Also the satellites to the high roller need to be only a half hour late reg. I hate looking in the lobby and seeing a 15k stack and 5 other 3k stacks, 20 minutes into the rebuy. I'm sure others hate this as well. I can go bananas on rebuys sometimes, so it's hard for me enter a 60 minute rebuy period for a capped topped prize of 215$. And I can't imagine a recreational player wanting to enter an hour long rebuy with regs, in basically a winner take all format.

Especially on the 7$ rebuy turbo too, at the end you literally rebuy with like 1/3 of a big blind. It's dumb. Make it a half hour and I'm sure people will go crazy at the end to make up for late reg not being as long.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

What was the reason for getting rid of the $3.30 omaha hi/lo 6-man turbo's? They seemed to fill up pretty frequently. Much more frequent than the $6 one that didn't get removed from the lobby.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

I posted in another thread; about lowing the buyin to nlh heads up mtt? It's at $30 and only gets 2 or 3 runners each time. I don't mind the price but a lower buyin and gtd would attract more players

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

joined the $15+1 hyper turbo MTT a little while ago and noticed it was 2k chips now... I pretty much only joined it cause I assumed 300 chips... huge letdown

why the change? I see only a few complaints on here... and based on the fields they were getting, people liked them... they didn't make the guarantee but they got damn close... even tonight, with a 2k starting stack, the $15 only got 90. 10 shy of the Guarantee

AND can we please get a $109 sat the the 70k, either sat night, or sunday morning? obv with $10/$15 sats to the $109 sat. I'm sure there's plenty of people who would buy directly into the $109 sat directly, and with weekday sats to that, it will easily pay out a few seats. Might even make the 70k GTD for once..

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

I think 9mans should be killed, 10mans are a lot more popular and the $9 ones are really taking off recently. Kill the 9mans (who cares about the reg speeds I play like 1/month lol) and add $20 and $50 10mans! or something like that.

+100

Please take this into consideration Shane. Everyone I've spoken to thus far agrees with this and wants this to happen. At the very least, please create 10mans above the $9 buyins with the appropriate decrease in rake. There are a bunch of regs including Tomo, myself and many others who will get them running often. Killing off the 9mans will only improve traffic to the 10mans. Having to play something other than the 10mans for a buyin above $9 sucks because they never fire off, so even just creating higher buyin 10mans would be great.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

Can you have a weekly $40-60 Omaha8 tournament? Don't have a high guarantee at first is all. You have a $2500 guar for a Monday night PLO $109 buyin. How about a $40 $1K guar Omaha8 at 8pm ET Tuesday nights?

I would love to see more satties for larger buy in tournaments. I think it would attract a lot more players and help meet guarantees.

Merge does such a better job of this. What they should do for like the 100k, is do what merge does, on Friday and Saturday they guarantee 25 seats for a 10 dollar rebuy, and with the guarantee people flock to the satellite.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

when addons become available please make sure the table pops to front, it currently does not. Also move the AO period to 5 til the hour and sync it with every other tourney break

Definitely agree with the popup idea, when you multi-table it can be easy to forget about it. I'm pretty sure they do the way they do so they have less chance of overlays.

Also, guess lock got hit hard by overlays on Sunday, you guys need to offer good satellites for the bigger tournaments, like 25 seats guaranteed or even 15, it will get people interested in it, if they know that there is going to be a shot at more then just a couple.

Re: **Revolution Tournament Improvement Thread**

Sent an email in just posting so other people know.

The 5pm 50+3 super turbo has apparently been removed. I won a satellite to it the other day and I swore it never popped sure enough it's not on the schedule anymore.

Not only that, but for a 50+3 tournament it offers you a $60 ticket lol For 1st I got a $60 ticket to a 50+3 tournament (and I added the numbers, $60 of the prizepool did indeed go to it) that doesn't exist and 2nd got $54 in cash! lol

edit: Tournament still exists, but appears to be Sunday only. WTF that tourny was meeting the guarantee every time afaik Would be nice too if they updated the satties to both A. pay the correct amount and B. mention that it is on Sunday not in 25 minutes






edit: +1 to the above. Look at the Merge schedule they have A TON of satties in general (theres an 11rb/1rb -> 215 sat numerous times a day with 1-3 seats GTD) running especially to their big sunday ones everyday and on the weekends they have big satties with nice GTDs. This is how you get people into a tournament!
