+1. If you are going to introduce new tournaments (55 special turbo 2k) and 160 special croc 5k they will never grow if they start out with such embarassing guarntees.

Should be 10k AT LEAST for the 160 and 7.5k at the very least for the 55 turbo.

and thanks for the 6max shot but 1.5k guarantee on a 75 buyin is laughable. Please stop being so nitty with guarantees.

Add more levels to you're out of date structure.

Also cascading tables is a nightmare, a new table shouldn't pop up if I still have an active decision on originally active table.

more people would reg the wsop sats if the status didnt say "restricted"

Also, you should really try to think up a more creative name for the special crocodile

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

Some updates:
1. The new blind level structure with earlier antes has been implemented for all of the daily highroller tournaments. We will gradually update other tournaments as well.
2. The Tornado's GTD has been raised from 8k to 10k as of tomorrow for a trial period.
3. Daily highroller tournaments with 15 minute levels (Hurricane, Typhoon) have been updated to 12 minutes. Starting chips in these tournaments have been increased from 4,000 to 5,000 to meet our new standard for the daily highrollers.
4. The Lightning 6 Max which was not very popular has been removed and replaced for the time being with a $27 Turbo Knockout tournament.
5. The Shot has been changed to 6-max as well as the new 2nd shot that will run on Sundays at 22:10 GMT
6. The WSOP packages will from now on be a 13k package instead of a 14k package and will not include the 1k buy-in online event.
7. Stay tuned as we will continue optimizing our tournament schedule and we have some more good things to come!
We very much appreciate your ongoing feedback. We will continue reading and occasionally update on changes we have made thanks to your feedback.

so there's no high roller 6max in the schedule anymore? I mean The Shot is a super turbo, that's not a real replacement but an addon.

a 320 would be best for thursdays, that's just my opinon though.

Its clear thursday needs a buyin 215+ though.

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

Since you guys are promoting the step system so much there should be a step 7 worth 600$ as there are two big 600s with one running weekly. The 30 dollar step 5 scheduled tournaments usually never get canceled and are great value, but winning a step 6 ticket only allows you to play a few tournaments (croc wsop satty and the odd sattty to a 600). It would be really awesome to see 2 or 3 160$ step 6 schedualed mtts running daily paying out a 600$ step 7 ticket. If they ran during peak hours they would easily see 10+ entrants. This would also be really huge during a tournament series.

The 160 dollar 4man sngs to the whale might as well be eliminated as nobody ever regs them, and you can't even play it if you have a seat to the whale anyways.

Some more WSOP $160 Steps, just like last year.

Something like 3pm and 10pm WET daily satts would be good.

Seems like a later 160 would work best on a Thursday, maybe three hours after the croc? Or else boost the Tornado or something on Thursday?

Super tornado boom

You should also def make the Sunday guarantees bigger of all the highroller events. The monsoon gets more than half it's guarantee as first prize, and I m sure it could do much better but I personally just skip the Sunday tornado and such because of their lousy 8k guarantees. Put 20k on them and I m always playing I m sure there's at least 100 guys thinking exactly the same
