Hi

Sorry if my post was not clear
I am working on the player survey to share in the next few days, and will post the link as soon as I have it
The survey will be live for 7-10 days and we will then gather all feedback and review.

With regards to the EOD Thursday - this is to gather and send relevant hot topics - which have come up within the thread and I feel will not be covered within the survey- as I did last week with round 1. I then hope to respond to these by mid next week.

Hope that's all clear


**Hot Topics **

- MTT structures - review level structures, add additional early blinds
- Early Ante option
- MTT tickets for points availabilty in the loyalty store
- More satts to higher value MTTs

Thanks

Colette

Since we are covering MTT tickets for points, we should cover the changed series ticket policy. The fact that these do not convert to tournament $ is both bad business and unethical. What would happen to those tickets if Party were to exit the market?

Every reputable poker site in the world converts extra tickets to Tournament dollars. PartyPoker provides users no means to track when one has multiple tickets that do not convert. And when the series is over, users are left waiting till the next series just hoping they will one day be able to use those tickets.

PartyPoker should have learned from the lower registrations during NJCOP. This policy produces less action not more. It needs to be changed immediately.

Re: *** Official Game suggestions / improvements thread ***

I took the survey, but some questions really don't answer much without context. For example the which stack size do you prefer to start at question. The stack size is really secondary compared to what the blinds are. It would have been better to ask how deep you prefer to be as opposed to just random stack sizes that don't paint a clear picture.

last summer you could see your tickets itemized with the quantites of each listed. then an update and you cant anymore. just a total and just the listing of the types. some Cs reps swear you can see the quatities and others have told me "sorry you cant right now we are working on it"

at any rate when that update happened and the ability to see quantities was removed. i and many others swear i lost some tickets because of it. how convenient because there is no way to prove it since those numbers disappeared.

Re: *** Official Game suggestions / improvements thread ***

what about more daytime action. last springish at noon there were two i remember playing in daily. one was 5$ 250 guarantee and the other was a 10$ 500 guarantee. when they caught on and started hitting their guarantees daily they were cancelled.

more afternoon action. maybe a 2$ 100,125,or 150 guarantee with one rebuy and an addon. even if its not a daily tourney and you pick one day out of the week the same day to run it to test it and see how it does. as long as you make the guarantees and dont overload your staff w whatever they have to do with the tournies running- who cares its successfull. even maybe run it pm primetime hours sometime people will play it.

it gives people a cheap option cuz in many minds 2$ isnt much but to some just trying out the site they may not go bigger initially until they feel more comfortable. personally when i first started replaying online in 2013 there was a huge adjustment
i had to make in my game play simply from how the software plays to "be exciting". every site played slightly different with ultimate being the most drastic from party. i went from cash/friendly games w real cards to a freak show. you can usually always tell the newcomers to online poker by their chatted reactions to how the cards come out but the shock value stays w some. i lost money the first few months i played. i didnt start playing at party i started at ultimate then party/borgata a few weeks later. huge difference, a few weeks after that 888/wsop. ultimate wasnt that shocking to me whether it was party/borgata or 888/wsop next either wouldve been the same reaction. fortunately for party i was very bored/unemployed and had my ultimate winnings otherwise i would not have stuck around long enough to be able to adjust to the site and start to have more fun and actually profit.

you need cheaper more affordable options for many reasons. sngs' for me unless its head to head dont appeal to me. some guarantee is better than no guarantee and the newer players who might not know already will quickly learn that a guarantee is nothing more than a MINIMUM prize pool


out of all the daily freerolls even the afternoon ones have close to 200 players . id say 3/4s of these people ive (if ever)rarely seen play in a tourney at a 5$+ buy in on your site. i dont know what that says to your reps but to me it says- they either dont want to deposit or cant afford to deposit to play, but they do enjoy being able to play online. the dont want to deposit could be any # of reasons. the point is out of all these freerollers who pretty much grind out the freerolls daily for a quarter or maybe a dollar or so. what do you expect them to spend this on?

i say one rebuy and an add on because its variety but also unlimited rebuys play different at such a low level buy in /guarantee. some people do like the restricted rebuys because the game play is different. you still get the wild cowboy tactics but it keeps it in check. some people just wont play unlimited rebuys at such a low level because it most often is quite a circus display untill very late once the rebuys are closed and whoever survives settles back in to playing poker a little more seriously. some use the lower levels to stay sharp or improve their game. any regular will tell you the flow and gameplay (how the players play) of a 2$ rebuy vs a 2$ flat buy in is completely different. u get way more all ins with the rebuy early. not everybody wants to play wild west showdowns every tourney because thats what the rebuys can be like and usually are if even in the least off and on. you're always gonna get play like that its poker, but its way more dominant in in those cheap rebuys and its not always fun to play like that even to those who prefer that playing style. you get a 100$ rebuy you dont see it nearly as much simply because at that level your more average person doesnt want to risk 100$ on a coin flip like that.

essentially those who want to play more serious realistic poker have to play at the higher levels or it will come as a shock if they dont know what to expect. further adding to opinions that online poker is a joke. but to do so for those people means needing a much higher bankroll otherwise they might only be able to play in a few tournies that might be the particular game play experience they are used to and comfortable with ( slight variations aside)

you look at the numbers of how much it costs to enter and how much can be won through the guarantees but did you ever consider all the variables (for mtts) of buy in amounts and rebuy conditions create intensely different gameplay experiences and flows. unlimited rebuys at the micro/low levels is the variable in which most changes the game play and probably chases recreational players away because they may have not played enough variety of your tourneys to realize they can find a tourney they can enjoy playing in at your site win or lose.

ive had cold streaks of 10 tournies in which i didnt cash mostly due to me having cold cards (not saying i didnt cost myself money outta any of those) . i felt i should probably take a break for a few days but i kept playing because i was having fun and enjoying myself and despite being down i wasnt losing more money than i could deal with. my point with this is not every player in nj has the bankroll to do this with your offerings. more than likely im not the only one w such cold streaks but imagine to a newer player who hasnt figuered out which of your tourneys suit their liking. that might not be fun and they might not be back. accept it your more likely to keep a newer player coming back and make them a regular if they can at least win a little or feel its likely for them to do so. the more opportunities they can have to try from a limited say " test" bankroll the easier it is for you to keep them wanting more.

atlantic city would be so much busier if people could find lower limit tables to play at. years ago youd go to ac and might be able to get on a 5$min table on a weekday afternoon. nowadays theyre nonexistent and you can almost always find a 10$min table game on a weekday afternoon open. ac used to be oh i only have 2-300$ ok f it lets go i can still have fun for a few hours and do something with that. nowadays its almost not even worth it to many people to make the trip unless they want to spin it off in some slots.

Re: *** Official Game suggestions / improvements thread ***

PartyRep aka Collette,

please forgive me if this issue was already addressed but I think this is the place for me to ask this question.

Now that this Sit and Go challenge is going on, it becomes quite clear to me that there is a strange lack of Hyper 6 man SnGs. We have $1, $2, then $50? I used to play these games and quite frankly the only reason I stopped was because of the lack of players / time to get a game launched. With this latest promo, perhaps now is the time to suggest they add to their Sit and go Listing.

For the 6 max format, I suggest adding:
- $5 Hyper
- $10 Hyper
- $20 Hyper

I cannot recall if the users who complained about the games being removed not too long ago were only talking about the Heads up Sit and Gos or if they also were talking about these 6 man tournaments.

Re: *** Official Game suggestions / improvements thread ***

And not to clutter up that post, I wanted to make a separate post more as an open question: Is the offering of Coin Flip Sit and Gos (only one winner) somehow more palatable to players / PartyPoker? I notice there are $1 / $2 / and $5 versions of that game for the 6max format. I am just curious what the reasons are, when we don't even have a $5 Hyper, which I am pretty sure is a much more popular format.

Re: *** Official Game suggestions / improvements thread ***

I'm sorry for getting off track & this may seem rather meaningless , but what happened to the automated message from the dealer telling us when a player is using his time bank ?
Has anyone noticed that?

Time bank automated message ?

If I would read the time bank automated dealer message while mtt , I would immediately jump to that game to see which player was tanking & try to figure out why.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller

Wow, it took me a few reads to actually understand your (very good) point.

Just a warning: if they ever did have a "time bank alert" as you suggest, there would be a TON of false positives. The time limits are set really tight for anybody who is multi-tabling.

A dealer message recently would pop up to alert the players that ; player x will be using his time bank for this hand.

Since the last update no message of any sort comes about from the dealer.

yeah the dealer message should always be there as long as "dealer chat" is enabled. So that's clearly a mistake if they accidentally / purposely removed it.

Hi

The $100 HU on Sundays was only attracting between 18-22 players and a decision has been made to remove this from the weekly schedule and run it on a monthly basis alongside the 100K GTD

The $35 R on Sundays was also removed due to lack of players.

Regarding the 6 max SNGs with buy ins above $50 these are still under discussion and it has not been confirmed when these will be re added to the current schedule
We do currently offer several Step higher buy in options for 6 max SNGs with a buy in of $100

Thanks

You can use your points to buy in directly to tournament in the lobby – no need to purchase tickets via the store – this would simply add an extra step. Unless you are referring to grouped tickets – this option may be available in the future for example – group tickets for our series
