agree @satties. i tried to play all of them when there were 3 seats gtd but skipping when its just one.

if you win a seat the client doesnt let you register again for the same targeted tournament wich kinda sucks

This is sometimes true.. I really don't understand how it works? Because all month i was playing the 60 super turbo to the whale every single day even though i already won a seat. But then on the Sunday of the whale i was unable to register to whale satellites? It seems for there daily offerings of satellites you are able to register even if you have won a seat, but not for their big day of satellites.

Very annoying and confusing!

There is a 10 dollar 1.5k turbo at 0:800 that has antees starting at 30/60. It also has a 40/80 level.

WHY are your structures so inconsistent? THIS should be the standard structure it is much better than the tweaked CROC/Monsooon.

Please make this the standard for all mtts!

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

888 is just a site that build up it's schedule by substantially adding a tournament here and there.

Of course a huge overhaul of all MTTs (and SNGs as well) would benefit the games but it's a PITA to do this. But hey, earning more rake might be an incentive.

While we're at it, I repeat: get rid of the multi table super turbos SNGs because the games are dead; people are regging the 4max Nitros (which are super fun btw). The STMTs just clock up the lobby. They never run.

The 4max nitros are garbage. 10% rake (even on 33s) on a super turbo with no antees.


Eagerly awaiting early antees on all tournaments!

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

yes, nitros are overrraked (like everything on 888? except maybe the 11+1 Dirty Dozen which is slightly better than any 10+1 on stars) and antes (as well as early antes in MTTs) should be there, besides from that, it is fun.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

the MEGA knockout deserves a bigger guarantee than 5k and should have satellites to it all week. Its a fun tournament and deserves more love. A tournament with a MEGA name should not have such a tiny guarantee!

15K could be a good start.

And PLEASE make some satellites with 2-3 seats guaranteed to the Volcano and Whale. The 60 dollar super turbo to the whale is getting canceled almost every day.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

it is because the 888 break timer starts immediately at xx.55, whereas stars waits for all hands to finish before the break timer starts, so 888 break finishes a few minutes before stars

So the fix should be to make the break to start when all hands finish. I really don't want to have 7minute breaks every hour, and I think many other players would agree. Fish especially.

So any update on changing structures to more tournaments? The CROC and Monsoon play so much better now that you have tweaked it.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

The "sit out next hand on all tables" function is currently flawed. As of right now when you click it to take action, you are still sitting in for the next hand played.

Currenly what happens is, you are still dealt into the next hand, and then after that hand is played, you are finally sitting out.....

This needs to be changed asap. The function should take effect IMMEDIATELY (after current hand is played) just like on PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.

The problem arises especially when heading into the synchronized break. You will have clicked sit out next hand on all tables, but you don't sit out at that moment. Instead you will come back (from the shortened break because of the current flaw in the synchronized breaks) and you won't be sitting out like you intended to in the first place.

This could be a problem when the auto-timebank function is actually implemented. Where you could lose your timebank when you are supposed to be sitting out.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

Also,

The "sit out next hand" and "fold to any bet" buttons are currently placed directly below the action buttons while playing the hand.

They are set in a horrible spot on the table window. Especially the "fold to any bet" button. It is currently right under the raise button!! This makes no sense whatsoever. It should be directly under the fold button to avoid mistakes from happening....

Some could mis-click raise or fold when trying to click these buttons...

These need to be changed to another area separate to avoid conflict. A suggestion would be on the left side above the chat box.

Also we have to manually click the time-bank button (which is pretty small) and it is currently set right above the raise button. This could also cause a problem where you barely have any time (6 seconds to click it) and you are rushed and could accidentally click raise instead.

The formatting of all the functions on the table need to be re-alligned to better suit the players!

So basically you asked for the games to be more reggier? Great idea man
