Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Any chance we can get the notification sound on the new felt made quieter or adjustable? So loud.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

What is the justification for the weekly drop of the Brawl guarantee? It was $20k a few months ago and is now $6k. Not sure if other tournaments are getting the same treatment, but are the tournaments really THAT far under guarantees regularly?

I know that in order to "legally" offer poker, GP has to provide a NPN and give out free $Cs. I am not saying get rid of that because they can't, I am simply saying that they should vastly reduce the amount they give out through the NPN mail in index cards by 60-80% and use that money for some kind of rewards program that isn't a challenge avatar and $3.10 a week...that oh you have to click every single day for a week.

Total MTT overlays as a % of rake is about 2.5x what it was 5 months ago, and in absolute terms, many more times that. We are tweaking the schedule to adjust to the new players and new playing patterns, to give the best experience possible, but don't be under any illusion that we aren't defending guarantees!

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Hey, relative new comer to GP but I'm a fan so far. A few things I'd like to see:

-Additional note color(s)
-Ability to adjust alert sound levels
-More "gamification" such as badges, avatars, challenges, leaderboards, etc. As a recreational player, I think stuff like this is always fun to have on the side and I imagine it doesn't cost the site too much. I think the more these can be designed with rec players in mind as opposed to regs, the better.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

I have moved to the new felt in order to see the bounties in PKOs and I have now had two times where I have been moved tables before I saw the result of the hand, and there is no way to get past tournament hand histories (that I know of).

Can we at least get a five or ten second pause after the end of a hand before getting moved?

I don't remember this being an issue on the old felt. Was it?

The Weekly Bonanza, where the prize for generating rake is an entry into a $33 rebuy tournament, is hilarious. Might entice more cash deposits at least.

Do they not understand or just not care? Some loyalty reward when half the winners wont even have the money for the add on. Serious lol...

The prize being an entry to literally the best value tournament (overlaying 30-40% each week of series) is a pretty good tradeoff, imo.

I love that stuff (I worked on this for other gaming sites in the past, its a passion of mine) and can confirm that we've started thinking about how we can begin rolling this out on GP.

Global Poker Improvement Thread

Is there a way to increase purchase limits? I keep getting emails from support denying my request but inviting me to request a different amount.

Im assuming the 12k limit on my account is to prevent abuse of the purchase bonuses. Id happily forfeit those in exchange for the ability to play on the site. Currently my only option to get sweeps cash is writing envelopes.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

why are 3 of the 7 nightly 110s turbos? its already the highest rake of any $100 tourney online with the fastest structure, now 3 of them are turbos too? the 2 55s are just standard freezeouts with no gimmicks, is it not possible to get a 110 like that too?

why were so many 1r1a tourneys removed? i hardly ever have enough tables going anymore now that theres infinite bounties that you're likely to bust early. id rather play a 22 1r1a than a 33/55 on betonline but i cant register it if it doesnt exist anymore.

whats the deal with airline food?

1. Show tourney buy in amount in the title area (pro mode).
2. Hands that go to showdown, also show the community cards in the dealer box after showing the players cards involved.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Extra login security
Pre sets for betting amounts
Toggle between Big Blinds and Dollar amount
More PLO tournies that are larger Buyin
Some sort of better rewards system than $3.10 a week (insult)

Love the site so far though, but some things that can be better.
