Just tried to reg the hyper turbo $3 rebuy at end of reg, I clicked it with 51 seconds, which is on avg 15 extra seconds taking into account lag, this time I was denied access. And actually only 30 ppl got in where normally its about 200 at the end of late reg

Yeah, that same happened to me and has happened around dozen times in last month or so

Party seems to have a even more buggy day than usual, check this tournament (blinds announced are different than blinds played) :



I think this has happened at least once before.

I am tired and angry that Party Poker does seeming nothing to fix these problems, even though we players keep bringing them up and waste our time.

lol, it's party's version of the Spin and Go.

I actually think it's a "feature" caused by some specific rules programmed into the software. I have no idea what the intention was but it ends up causing lots of overlays.

Also removing Monday-Saturday $20 turbo rebuy with big add-on makes no sense at all, it has never overlayed what I have heard of and I have sometimes just 1-tabled it. And in return: not a single interesting new tournaments.

Reinstall at least 10+R one, or I'll be gone. You have 2 tournaments left worth interest now, not enough reason to open your crappy software (Hyper rebuy and 10+R 10/20 seats satellite). I usually play satellites and in Sundays 20+R PLO8 also, but will be gone from them too.

Your new timetable is just simple said: Awful!
Lol, still didnt get the memo? Hint.: read my posts again.


@Partyrep

Why there is no increase to 5k starting in the 10k daily major for $50.(As promised to consider). Your team thinks that not even the major deserves that?

Totally unacceptable! And it wasn't because bad internet or slow computer, I even made 2nd try using the lobby "register" button while it was pending and got message saying about "tournament registration in progress, you can register after current registration has been completed".

It always keeps me annoyed when this thing happen, and for a good time it has happened more often than not and it feels like lottery if software is going to let me play tournament.

Colette: Has there been any action to fix this?

E2: And now that I registered to 10+R turbosat, it registered me instantly. So there's no clear pattern in this, looks more like random bugs.


The tech team are looking into this.

Hi all

The late reg issue has been with the tech team and we should see some improvement soon

I understand the new schedule may have disappointed some however this is a seasonal review and the will be updated again in September

Points to discuss this week -

More low stake GTD MTTS
Late reg issue - timing out - follow up with tech team
PLO8 or NLO8 turbos / hypers and rebuys this time in Pokerfest


Anything to add?

Thanks

Colette

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

Hi all

Regarding our lower stake offerings with smaller GTDS - the team are already working on the next schedule to follow up from our summer offering and the small stakes offering will be reviewed.

NL08 - we currently do not offer - I cant see this changing in the near future, sorry.
PL08 - we have no current plans to implement as we found we did not have the player base for these when we tried previously.

Regarding Pokerfest - we do have some 6 MAX PLO offerings and some low GTD events for these. The schedule will be live next week - feedback welcome as always.

Late reg issue - timing out - I have followed up with tech team and they cant find any tech error from our side - though the investigation continues. I will feedback when possible. I have gathered some more info from the players - if anyone feels this affects them directly please send a PM with further details and I will ensure its looked into

Thanks

Colette

Any chance you can make the font bigger for the chipstack and player names.

It's absolutely tiny compared to every other site, and doesn't increase when you increase the table size.

If you've fixed this, or added an option for the player to choose since the last time I've played, well done! (if not please do it)

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

Looks like no PLO8 tournaments coming. What a shame.

I don't want a day full of boring PLO8 freezeouts. But make 2 or 3 different PLO8 tournaments for different days, like turbo rebuy PLO8, one higher buy-in PLO8 freezeout and one PLO8 hyper rebuy (though NLO8 is clearly better for hyper purposes, PLO8 should do just fine).

There are 3rd party software that can do this for you. Party hasn't really been active in making these kind of changes or giving players the possibility to change stuff that much.

Yup, a friend also told me that. But buying 3rd party software to make a site playable is really bad for party. Im positive there is some non insignificant amount of people who ditched party cos its so damn hard to see unless youre a Kestrel.

Seems rather a simple thing to alter the font size for whoever is in control of looking after the software. Although given some of their **** ups im not sure that person actually exists

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

why have you completely removed 10/20 blind level, even from some tournies with 3k starting stack?
And even from some PLO tournies. Its quite stupid to play $35 PLO sunday major with 75bb starting stack.

Please re-think this matter.

I think they have changed more than that. I am fairly sure the 10k Daily (Not Sunday) $50 at 21:00 UK used to be 5k starting, 15m levels and start at 10/20. Today its 3k, 12m and 20/40.
I think antes might be there earlier which is a good thing imo, but overall changes look bad.

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

Hi all

We changed our structure based on feedback
We implemented the 150K structure change first and as it proved popular rolled this out on some of our other tournaments.

As per my post on the 11th June- We will look to implement our recent improved structure (used on the 150K GTD) across all our major tournaments. This is ongoing and we hope to have this fully implemented in the next few weeks.

Thanks

Colette

Why is the "daily" 50rebuy not running everyday and why is it called daily major?

Hi

This tournament was removed completely then due to demand we reinstated on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the summer schedule
This possibly may be daily again later in the year but for now will remain twice weekly
I agree the naming convention is not right - though it does fall into the major category and plays on a weekday so falls into the daily sub section
We couldn't really call it the Twice Weekly Major

Thanks

Colette

baffles me you dont run the 50 rebuy on sundays - you guys really dont think you could fill a 10k+ guarantee? throw a small guarantee on it and see where it goes - my guess is it would get a ton of action and would be a lot more interesting then your standard freezouts
