Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me? I don't understand why players aren't boycotting this network.

Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

how do you know when its happening to you? is it only in sng's? if you disable fold and show, does that make it 100% impossible?

And...
  • Changing their bonus deductions from rake (for those who have rakeback) to 50%, but taking it from the affiliates' commissions rather than from the rake like every other site does, resulting in an effective rake deduction of more than 100%. Of course none of the players or affiliates knew anything about this, and when confronted, Cereus changed things so they would instead deduct 100% from the MGR. When players ask about the change, all Cereus' CS tells them is that it was made at the affiliates' request, with no further explanation. This leaves players wondering why their affiliates would request greater deductions.
  • Changing their system so antes no longer count as contributions for the purposes of point accumulation. Of course they don't give any advance warning of this change, and it applies to outstanding bonuses.
  • Retroactively changing everyone's bonuses from non-expiring to 90 days. And not 90 days from the change, but 90 days from whenever they deposited for the bonus under the condition that it wouldn't have an expiry date. And, not that it would make a difference, but once again, no one is told. So players log on one day to find that hundreds or even thousands of dollars in bonuses they had pending are suddenly gone.
  • A month later, they changed the bonus terms again, retroactively, to 60 days.

Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

Man, you guys have convinced me 1000 times over. I've only been playing online a few months and am ready to branch-out from PS. Not that i was seriously considering UB anyway. But if even a fraction of these things are true why would anyone play there when there are obv better choices out there? Even the actions of UB that can't be considered outright cheating certainly show zero respect for their players. I will never deposit a dime on that site. Thanks for the run-downs of their actions/attitudes towards their players.

This is pretty sick, trying to screw the player in any way possible.
