Opening FTP, I had just 22k points, I think this is not the same as 280 dollars of bonus.

If FTP is not closed, I would finish it to the end, it not my fault. Can I get bonus on the rest part of my first deposit bonus?
if this was your first time deposit bonus and ftp closed befor you finished. I would have to say you are entitled to the remaining uncleared bonus. you should talk to the reps on here by directly messaging them.

What happened?

These and rush tournaments where the reason I play on your site.

I want to play rush tournaments, which never run, only every few hours one. Without the ODs I can't play anymore. These are the only thing special about FT at the moment.

What is going on?!!! I am very upset!
knircky, I thought you lived in Philly. How is it that you are able to play on FT and Stars?

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

A bug in multi-entry FTP tournaments.
I'm not sure whether this is the right thread to post this, but e-mailing FTP support didn't help at all. My friend was playing 1$, multi-entry, rush on demand tournament and was running so hot that he got both of his entries onto the FT and they merged, as per the rules, and he received 9th place prize money for one of the entry. However, prior to the FT play, during 4- and 5-handed play he eliminated one of the players and another player was also eliminated on the other table, before the FT was formed, thus the FT was started with only 7 players remaining. Here's the weird part - the guy who got eliminated by one of my friends' entries got 8th place finish prize, whereas my friend got the 9th place, even though he eliminated the 8th place guy. Even though the payjump is miniscule, this is clearly unfair and must be due to a bug or a faulty algorithm where merging takes priority over eliminations in terms of who gets the lower place prize money. This is clearly absurd and should be looked into. Imagine a highly unlikely, but possible situation where there's a triple or quadruple elimination right before the final table and the player with 2 entries left still gets only the 9th place finish prize, whereas the players eliminated get prize money based on their stacks before the final hand.

Whoever had the most chips when getting knocked out would finish in the higher spot. This is pretty standard for bubble knockouts etc...

His point is that its obviously grossly unfair to "bust" a merged stack before the players who actually busted out.

Not really. Say one of the stacks to be merged had 1 chip and the guy who actually busted out had say 100 chips. Which should finish higher?

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

even in that case, the 1 chip stack hasn't actually busted

Has anyone tried to transfer money from one Full tilt player to another? Is that working fine?

Exactly. If merged stacks were supposed to be "busted" first then in the normal situation the merged stack should take 10th not 9th. Here we have something that makes no sense:

Two players bust:

Smallest Stack Busted Takes 10th
Merged Stack Takes 9th
Bigger Stack Busted Takes 8th

There really is no way to justify that logically.

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

Been a month since FTP reopened. I still have not bothered to reactivate my account. Is it worth playing yet?

I assume no and by what I gather by post on 2+2, its infested by pros who are clearing their bonuses plus the tables for ring/tournament is still low while still being easily the number 2 poker site.

Easier question would be at this time, would you play on PS or FTP?

There is tons of fish on there, I can confirm. My aces and kings are being cracked hard.
