Re: Official FTP Relaunch Thread (OP updated October 26, 2012)

I went through about 10 pages (100 posts per page) ITT and saw not one American that has relocated asking about getting their account re-instilled for real money play. I emailed FTP my updated verification docs that I used to get my stars account activated again and was told that everything should be fine and I can login to play, but when I login it still has my address listed as American and no option to play or link with stars account. Also, slow response emails by support due to overwhelming email traffic I'd imagine....

Ring game tickets are a bit stupid...

Suppose a 50NL full ring player buys a 50$ ring game ticket.
You need to get 1250 points to clear it... that's around 5000 hands at 50NL full ring which is roughly 53 hours of play. Suppose the player's average session lasts for 1 hour. The player would need to play 53 sessions with this ticket. However, if the player drops below 50$ after any given session, he is forced to play as a shortstack or at a lower stake to be able to use his ticket. Also, it is virtually impossible that the player would be able to actually clear the ticket, since over 53 sessions, it is extremely likely that he will lose his full buy in once...

In fact, the biggest problem is that the player may be forced to play at a lower stake than he intends... I suggest that one of the following options be given to the player: A) Buy in into a cash game with a combination of his ring game ticket and money from his cashier or B) Let players somehow merge ring game tickets together... but this option is probably rather complicated

how can we see the value of the ring game ticket of the DMI bonus, only at the end of 21 days ? how much the ticket increase ? if we get 1$ per 25 fpp, the ticket value is 1$ per 25 fpp too ?

No one is forcing you to buy it.You can get 5 buyins for 10nl with a 50 dollar one.That would be about 25k hands? That can be done in a few days on zoom 4 tabling.

If you cant play a lot of tables then dont buy it.If you want to play 50nl then maybe save up for 200 dollar ticket.

submitted my documents and after first email saying lease wasn't accepted because of no dates (3 dates on it) exchanged a few back and forth and was taken care of bit after that, took about less than 24 hours

they're obviously only worth buying if you're already rolled for the games and will be grinding anyway. Likewise tournament players should buy tournament tickets for their usual games. If you buy tickets for games you wouldn't otherwise be playing, you're essentially wasting your points. The fact that so many people don't realise this is what makes it worthwhile for FTP to offer them!

Re: Official FTP Relaunch Thread (OP updated October 26, 2012)

When you reach the clearance target, is it the current value of the ticket that is unlocked in cash into your account or the max value?

Re: Official FTP Relaunch Thread (OP updated October 26, 2012)

So they lose equity value compared to their actual cent per FTP because of the clearance requirements (won't clear 100%), the fact you can bust them and the fact most of the year you won't unlock the max value? Any idea how much equity value? Are they even worth buying over a comparative bonus?
