Which is not really supposed to be preferred. Except when the points are a giant mess.
Glad some of this stuff is getting tackled Shane. Seems you're trying to slog through it one by one. Hopefully the terrible points system is next on the agenda.

Maybe they need to bump the VIP system up a bit to encourage more volume from people who can't get to Elite, or they will just switch to RB now that this news is out.
I'm sorry to keep bothering you guys but can someone explain it to me because I'm really confused right now. Why isn't better to go with VIP if you can achieve Black VIP level not Black Elite ?
Doesn't the 35% Cashback work the same way as 36% Rakeback and is applied to your daily/monthly Gaming Rev that shows up in your Stats page of the Admin ? Plus you get the whole 7 VIP points/$ raked. Right now on rakeback when I play an $10+$1 tournament I only get 4 VIP points for my $1 rake as my 36% rakeback gets deducted. On VIP I assume I will get 7 VIP points for the same tournament.
I'm probably misunderstanding the way Cashback works so please can someone explain this to me ?
