Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

I'm sure this has been said somewhere before but I felt the need to vent about the disconnect/rejoin policy. My internet drops for less than 20 seconds and I'm punted from both tables and can't rejoin for 5 minutes. asdl;kf;sadlkfas;ldkjfsa;dlkfsl;j

All the real bodog88 pages are blocked in the U.S., but from that page you linked, I see poker mentioned several times.

bodog network only serves 4 countries. bovada.lv for the us. bodog.eu for canada. bodog88 for china and vietnam.

They do not propose poker anymore in Vietnam (since a week), that is why I was asking for China ...

Ah, my bad, I didn't realize there were that recent of developments. I knew they did a few weeks ago, and just assumed nothing had changed.

Don't be afraid to employ an aggressive GTD structure, there in certainly interest in the game and the tourneys will fill, it has already been demonstrated when you raised your weekly PLO8 from 5k to 7k...you're getting more entries than ever now, far above the GTD.

Also adding some more tournaments at non-peak hours would help fill some gaps in the schedule you have currently.

Also would love to see even a $20 PLO hi only some time each night

These are perfect lead-ins for me . I'm doing another round of give me your suggestions and bugs lists that I've done before.

For those not familiar, over the next 5-7 days or so.. I want all of you to post pretty much any suggestion* for things you'd like to see on the network. This can be software features, tournament or sng ideas, cash games you'd like to see spread, even something about how the software looks.

I also want you to give me any sort of bugs/issues that you seem to run into with the client. Obviously after tonight many of you will say connection issues, so that'll be on the list.. but I want to hear them all (with a decent explanation if possible.. the more info the better).

I'll comb back through this thread and pick out anything that has been mentioned before and hasn't yet been fixed for the sake of having a complete list.


And if you have doubts about whether this works.. here is a endorsement from XaQ :-D

So let's hear it!




*There are a few things that won't be discussed. Anonymous tables, synch breaks, auto-reload are non-starters. I think other than that.. let's hear it!

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Suggestions

- 200nl Zone
- Start Zone when a table is short-handed
- More plo8 tournaments/plo tournaments at night- 1 nightly mid-stakes for each
- Early Antes mtts. Big starting stacks with antes in play right from the start

Bugs

- Connection Issues
- Booted from table when only disconnected for a very short time


I'll keep this list going, plus expand it, as you guys give me more and as I go through the thread. I'll be sending this along to the network the evening of the 26th, so you've got about a week

First! OK this is a very serious suggestion even though it may seem like I'm just poking fun. But...a suggestion is better education and communication between the IT staff and the customer service staff. It's all but guaranteed that when the site has its every other day crash that people will get form letter emails and "it's not our fault" answers from customer service.

-6 table cash game limit or 4 table zone limit (for each stake).

-when you get disconnected/booted from a table, it makes you wait 5 minutes to rejoin it again.

-HU zone

Synchronized breaks for all mtts! Every 55 on the hour for example so that you have time to actually get up without a hand in play...

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Add a 10K stack 10 Min blind tournament during the 6-9 PM EST slot. The $60 and $11 that are at 10 and 10:30 EST are awesome.

Add a progressive bounty like Stars runs where when you knock someone out half their bounty goes to you and the other half gets added to your bounty. (both during the week and a nice Sunday offering during the main schedule)

+900 million to getting booted from cash tables when you disconnect for 10 seconds (which happens all the time) Maybe fix that too? Though I'm sure that is a harder thing to fix...

Add an option on heads up tables to add another table to make it easier for people who want to multi-table against each other.

Increase the Sunday $100K to a $150K since it's always closer to $175K anyway. Results have shown that the higher you make it the bigger it gets.

Sync the breaks for MTTs, even fish play more than one table and go to the bathroom.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Bovada really needs some sort of synched breaks. Regs are going to be against this for obvious reasons, so maybe the synched breaks could be at something other than :55?

Also, the bugs for Mac users is beyond terrible. All my tables crash at least once a night on my Mac and it forces me to restart my computer before the software will open again.

I agree with these and I have a few others that other players may or may not have mentioned.

1) Synchronized breaks is a must!! Even if you're playing 3 tourneys, it's pretty hard to run to bathroom or get bite to eat.

2) Add a few extra blind levels in your tournaments. It seems after the first hour, you're always handcuffed with being in the 8-12 big blind range unless it's a 10K chip or SS tourney. There should be a little more play than just a shovefest.

3) Your biggest nightly tourney is the $55 - 35K guarantee. Why is that only a DS tourney? 3000 chips is too short for this.

Thanks for your attention.

I'm pretty confident there isn't one person playing Bovada MTTs against synced breaks, if there is, they are very dumb. The breaks need synced at 55 after like every other poker site in the world, it's ridiculous they aren't really.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

1. When the software freezes, after you relog-in, have all your tournaments auto open. Why do I have to push rejoin table button in the lobby. Why would I not want to rejoin?

2. Fix the tile and cascade buttons. When you push them they create odd tile patterns on dual screen monitor setups.

3. Create an option for larger font sizes of stack sizes, bet sizes, and pot sizes. When the table is re sized to a bigger size, the font remains the same as when the table is in the default size.

4. Create a simpler and cleaner table look, along with more variety of background and card colors/looks.

5. Assign random numbers to tournament players instead of them being assigned a number based on when they joined a tournament. Especially important in sngs. In MTT's it may be harder to employ since the end number of players is unknown, however it would still be nice.

6. More super deep stack (10k stack) and super stack (5k stack) tournaments throughout the day.

7. More tournaments durring the 10 am central - 2pm time frame. The 10 am 12$ 5k always does well showing there is a player base for the increase in tournaments to play.

+1, especially on the synchronized breaks! Is there a reason as to why we don't have them on Bovada yet?

One can only assume they think it will bring in more regs, but all the regs already play Bovada so it's pointless and just a pain in the ass for regs and recs alike.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Feature requests:
Double clicking a player takes you right to their notes.
No cap HU in FL games.

Bug:
HH load times are beyond unacceptable after playing for an hour or so, taking up to five minutes or more per request.

I'm torn on this. While this would benefit me and most reading this in the short term, I'm afraid any feature that would attract more regs to the site could be bad in the long run.

But this definitely needs to be fixed. I get the 5 minute wait if you manually leave a table, but the lockout after getting disconnected (especially when it's usually Bovada's fault) is beyond draconian and insulting to everyone.

yeah the 5 min wait after being disconnected is horrible.

40 or 50bb min buy in would be amazing too

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

When you disconnect and reconnect (if you aren't booted from the table) everyone appears to have cards whether they are in the hand or not.

Allow mouse scroll to increase/decrease bet size with the table being active instead of having to hover over the bet slider area.

Get rid of the sports ticker in the lobby.

Also, I read someone around here suggesting that it may be a good idea to integrate user IDs into the downloadable HHs. It wouldn't change anything about the anonymity of the games but, would allow for another layer of security where players themselves could spot possible cheating. I think this is a great idea and would definitely help to comfort those who are skeptical about the anonymous atmosphere.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Another one: unique player ID's for zone like the way it's set up for tournaments. And in order to avoid confusion for when players leave the game, once player "10" leaves the zone tables the #10 can't be used again for x-amount of hours (12 maybe).
