I first joined RPM with rakeback also, but I still switched to Hero anyways long ago because of the promos they were offering way back then even. Besides if you look carefully at their VIP program the first 100 levels give back as much as RB I do believe. Just save up all the tourney tickets until level 100 then cash those in at one time. I made it to level 135 before I finally asked and received rakeback at Hero. I think the rule is just 60 days without playing on your original rakeback site. I was fine playing without rakeback on Hero for a year. Once you get high enough in levels it pays way more than rakeback does anyways, if you play a lot. I do enjoy the rakeback now plus the promotions, even though the VIP's earn at a lesser rate (65%) with rakeback and the promos are based on VIP's. Just means I have to earn 35% more VIP's with rakeback than without. So don't let not having rakeback stop you, the promos right now are worth about 100% rakeback for me. Anything else you get is just gravy.
Also, I started my roll from winning the freerolls they offered, so I never deposited on Hero. I deposited on my rakeback site RPM but after just one freeroll Hero offered a year ago for 10K I won enough to continue playing there til now. They still offer two daily freerolls you can play in to get started, plus they offer Omaha sng freerolls that you can play for free, they don't pay much but they run non stop. Once you win .33 cents they offer four different .33 tournaments daily with a guarantee that has an overlay of about 65%. I can make a quick 60 bucks in a few weeks just playing those for the .33 entry because of the overlays. It's just about impossible to go broke on Hero to be honest.
I would deposit quickly though rather than earn your bankroll from the free stuff and the good value stuff. I think missing out on the Chosen One promotions one day is a mistake. There are just so few people in them, especially the weeklys for $1500 that it's a big mistake not getting those VIP's starting today. It's only going to grow in numbers once Hero puts the promotion on it's webpage, or advertise it somewhere. Right now only the players in the Hero thread seem to know about it.
