Today is your biggest guarantee to date (50k), and once again the avg stack at the FT is 15bbs. You turn the most important level of the tournament into a push/fold scenario. Baffled at the ignorance of your team.
To mention a few more details that your incompetent team can't seem to get a grasp on; tournament lobby info is piss poor at best, no late reg is ignorant (not a huge deal), rake is absurd, no rake back or bonuses = greedy pigs, and the #1 worst thing about your site is your lack of security. This is just ridiculous. I honestly believe there is not a single person working in the security department. The fact that you allow account names like "STANKDICK and Global******" supports this claim. I have experienced players telling their hands during play. This is a huge foul, and i have not seen a single player punished for it. I can only imagine that the level of cheating taking place on the site is through the roof.
I am no tournament expert but it does seem to get shove fold really quickly. But I will also say I don't know that the player base agrees that this is a bad thing. I think certain MTT experts think its bad, but some how I get the impression that Global is not filled with MTT experts.
Tournament lobby could for sure use some improvements, in particular starting stacks as others have pointed out should be listed. The table should also list the place you are out of how many are left, rather than needing to check the lobby for those stats.
-1 on wanting late reg. And I am not alone here. And in regards to your next point, you shouldn't want late reg. If you have been following what is been going on at ACR in particular, it turns out that no late reg actually worked in favor of security at Global. Not saying it makes it perfect security, it is far from it, but this is one exploit that can't be run at Global.
Yeah the security question is a good one, and the answer appears to be very sticky at best. Other threads have touched on it, and in an attempt to keep this short, I will always say what I have always said, don't keep money on Global you can't afford to see gone tomorrow.
As far as the avatar names, yeah I have seen that player and others and I wonder "Why hasn't that been challanged?" but at the same time, no matter how good the filter, people will find a way around it. So let 1000 flowers bloom I say. I would be much more worried about screen names that appear to be attempting SQL injection attacks in their username. PM me if you are curious what that would look like and accomplish.
People talking about their hands is prohibited by the rules.
So my question back to you would be have you reported the people who do this? I get that you are upset, and I am not even saying you shouldn't be, however if that anger only leads to this post and doesn't actually lead to action on your part, then you are just whining.
Hopefully you have reported these chat incidents to support so that they can be looked at. Because you are correct it is unethical. And if you have reported it, and also are making a point here, then bravo. But it above is just complaining without action, move along please.
