Realize I have to balance A LOT of things for these. It's not just a matter of coming up with the best structure possible but making sure tournaments start and end by certain times (for instance, 7pm tournaments appeal to a lot of casual players, which is GREAT, but if they last until 4-5am that's too late). I've looked at some of the durations of current tournaments and I think adding these two levels would help some. I'd like to try that for a few weeks and get some feedback and then if that isn't enough adjust level times or starting stacks. Thoughts?
BTW - as a player I always thought this sort of thing was super simple, but I never really realize all the extranious things that have to be balanced as well. I'm happy to try and respond to feedback as well as possible, but it's definitely a juggling act to keep everyone happy.
As a player everyone is probably thinking more at his own preferences , style , schedule, etc so I do realize that to keep up everybody pleased could be a complicated thing. I was just giving a suggestion to make some changes sooner and maybe after some feedback do the needed, more complicated, tweaks. Anyways with the latest changes I think you're going in the right direction and the fact that you're willing to listen to player opinions is a very big plus. Keep up the good work. Thank you.
