Yh it's full time so no more $15 45-180's ever again. however thee games run like billio!!

tbh I'm surprised about the lack of discussion on them in here. but then it's prob going off in some euro forums as I guess this plaxce is mostly yank based.

rip 15$ mtsngs, instead of having 20 x 15$ 180s / 45s a day that where beatable we now have millions of 27-180 15$ with 95% regs in them, wp stars.

I prefer now. It's still beatable and there is a lot of action.

I guess this is due to the 15$s being shown in the mtt column under late reg.

my guess is turbos 180s are going to dry out but this time next year if Amaya doesnt "revitalize" the format by offering a variation of it that the vast majority of the posters here are asking for years, but Amaya could not care less about a format that isnt appealing for depositors/recreational so yeah gg 180s.

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars MTTSNG Suggestion Thread ***

Well if they continue adding game types that are unbeatable purely based on rake, I dont think its that far fetched at all. 10% raked games moving forward? Recs and pros alike will realize they arent beatable long term. Keep taking away rakeback so that winners is even less and less, people WILL move away from your site to a better option. Only problem they have a monopoly here which sucks but players gotta diversify and not really one hundred percent on one site. They might have short term profit spikes, but long term this model of lying to your players about better ecosystem, higher raked games, lower rakeback, all of this will push towards less players winning and recommending the site. They will die a slow death this way, only question is how long will it take before it happens or before they sell and realize oh crap we have really screwed up here. We looked at the players as customers solely and forgot they were intelligent smart humans capable of picking up and leaving. Oops didnt mean to rant but seriously they dont have long as #1 anymore, IMO

The think is recreational/depositors dont know or dont care about how "beatable" a format is for them they just play it because its fun, enjoyable and they have the chance to "hit the jackpot" just like they would on a casino.

this only affect regulars and/or poker pros not the casual recreational/depositor

Amaya is fine with this they´re looking for a less reg infested games

even with the changes PokerStars has a very competitive reward system, perhaps not the best but is not the worst and also has one of the lowest rakes in some games, i agree that some of the newests formats like spins&go and Beat The Clock are just insane high but Spins are very popular and will remain popular for many years to come i think, and even tho other site offer better rewards they have to since Stars still has the highest traffic of any poker site in the world and for somone playing SNGs and Cash thats very valuable just being able to load tables at virtually any time during the day you can easily load up 6 tables of cash.

recs are not idiots they will realize when they win way less often because of higher rake somethings up

not true at all. if you have a model where winners are less there will be less credibility altogether

this i can agree with as true, as they want to fleece people in higher raked low edge games.

also true, but it doesnt mean you have to sacrifice what has made you so good in the past. just because they had great customer service, promos, rakeback doesnt mean moving forward they can just do whatever they want. If they want to be industry leaders they must upkeep all the things that made them great which cleary no effs are being given anymore

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars MTTSNG Suggestion Thread ***

Hello guys, I would like to create a HUD for SNGs specially for 180 man turbo
I'd like to know your opinion about optimal HUD stats for Turbos 180's SNGs
I know how to create custom stats so you shouldn't worry about any stat.

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars MTTSNG Suggestion Thread ***

Seeing how the VIP program has changed for the worse; thus players will be even less incentivized to play now seems like the perfect time to merge some of the dwindling SNGS into more continuous and successful ones.

The main thing being merging the $8 180mans with the $7 $45mans into On Demands. As it is the games seem to be dying down from as early as 10pm-11pm when it used to be around 2am-3am. If more games are running around the clock then players will be actively entering more games, whether they are STTs, SNGS or MTTs

^ Good post, was going to post something similar. Even in peak times, the 8s seem to seldom run. Making them OD would definitely help.
