Re: PartyPoker October Release

Personally im just waiting for stars to lower their sng rake. Its nothing but regs at partys sngs nowadays and the action isnt good enough. Too bad, i have to pay taxes on winnings from stars but not on winnings from party. When stars lower their rake there will not be enough incentives to play at party anymore for me. Their usp has always been the tax situation but that will not be enough. Imagine playing sngs with ~half the rake and ten times the action. And software without bugs. Will be happy days.

Re: PartyPoker October Release

Changes seem awesome to me. Elite being reduced to 40k/quarter is really good.

Just need the influx of new bwin players now!

Change to Elite status is dropped from 50k/quarter to 40k.

The changes apply to the bonus/cash levels.
Whoops!! Sorry, I thought this was the new loyalty system level structure rather than the cash/bonus buying prices.

Right, I've had a proper look now.

So it is better for Palladium Elite. But only Elite. Everyone else suffers, mainly in terms of bonuses (except Bronze, where there's no change).

good changes. might go for elite now as it will be "only" 40k point/quarter and that 7k bonus makes a bit more rb

Re: PartyPoker October Release

would be nice to know if the changes will go live before the next quarter(and if they would count already)? If I push it a bit I could make 40k points this quarter but no way i will make 50k

Re: PartyPoker October Release

can someone confirm/deny this for me please:

when it is someones turn and their timer runs out (after timebank) there is a period of time (around 5 seconds) where the blinker indicating whose turn it is just blinks but nothing happens. if it happens to me my buttons will disappear after the timer runs out but it takes the 5 seconds before I am put to sitout.

i just find this period of time completely useless waste of time

party support claims it is my connection but i remember this happening back when i was on a university 100mbit line so i would like someone to check for me

doesnt cost anything. you can even join someone waiting for hu action and not post your blinds. wait until the timer goes to 0 and see if you are being sitout instantly or if there is the ~5 seconds before it happens where you cant do anything but wait.

OMG This... it's so tilting when you know you've missed your post and still have to sit and watch you get dealt out for 5sec

Not to be confused w/ the slight delay in the arrow blinking when someone is going to fold--Don't ever change that it's the sickest sweat ever

Has the software been crashing for anybody else? Mine crashed for the third time today while multi-tabling tourneys.

can couple more regs (paging juk and other reg posters in party threads!) confirm this before I email party about this again with a few chosen words

this is the reply i got from the support when i asked about it:

Quote:
As for the 5-second delay, there is no such thing and you are the first person to write to us about it. Most likely there is a delay on your end while displaying the action which is caused by the servers that your connection goes through. Unfortunately, this is not something that we can affect in any way, so my best advice to you is to see if you can change your Internet plan to a faster one (unless you are already using the fastest one, of course) and to minimize the usage of Internet-based applications while playing and see if it helps.

Party Rep - Can you please give us a new ETA on the sitout problem fix that we were promised months ago? When will it be implemented? Higher stakes games are a mess, people camp on tables and sitout/table block all day long.

It's not a bug that effects me as I only play SNGs these days (ie: no post option, etc).

The bug you mentioned a few posts back about the tables losing the "show window contents while dragging" (or whatever it's called) did hit me recently though - was great fun trying to figure out where the bloody setting for it was in Windows 7 whilst playing (and of course Windows 7 can't keep it in the same place as XP Turned out it's now in "System" <- WTF??? ).
