FTP Answers 11/26

For reference, previous answers thread:
https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/28...1-11-a-630348/

Today's update was mainly for the addition of a new language (Romanian). We also updated the small cards to have a nice big suit above the big number to make distinguishing suits easier without needing to use a 4-color deck.

Questions:

1. what about the shortstacking?

- We've done a lot of analysis, held a bunch of meetings, and a decision has been made. I can say we are going to do something. I can't say what that something is just yet, but it's planned to happen before the end of the year.

2. could you add some PLO 6 max MTT

- I'll take a look.

3. Can we get some turbo 18man plo8 sngs?

- Very likely.

4. When is Kevin Smith going to get an avatar?

- I'm going to check if he wants a Silent Bob or a Kevin Smith, but hopefully we can sneak it into one of the next few batches of avatars.

5. I have "increase bet by 1BB" selected not "Jump to click point." If I scroll down it goes to 2BB and if I scroll up it goes to pot. It won't go to 3BB on PL tables. And this problem happens every time.

- I think we've figured this one out and it should be fixed in the next big update.

6. can you please address the issue that when your table breaks in an mtt the new one doesnt always pop up?

- We're still looking into this and trying to figure out exactly what's happening. Some people are saying that if they don't close the tournament lobby the problem doesn't happen (or it happens far less often). We do have a long term fix, but it's fairly complicated and won't be ready for at least a couple months, so in the mean time we're trying to fix the current issue.

7. Whats this about a new rewards program? Does this mean that Ironman will be scrapped?

- No, they'll be completely separate. Iron Man won't be affected.

8. I'd really like it if you guys could add super turbo SNGs at a level below $3.80 for NL and PLO.

- Just added $1.50s.

9. PLEASE! Make it so we can see who is sitting HU or any SNG without opening the #!*&@#*(!& tourney.. like cash games with widget or something.

- This is in the works. Development on that widget should start in the next month or so.

10. Can I use both the mobile key as well as the physical key? I think I'm going to keep the physical one as a backup

- Yes. And I think doing it the way you're planning is probably the best way to go.

11. Is there any chance we finally get a 69+6 $ 90-man Sng MTT? And a 180-man?

- No plans for either any time soon, sorry.

12. Please, please, please make sure we can do SB and 1/2SB(1/4BB) increments

- For now, and for the sake of expediency, we're just doing the SB increment, not the 1/2SB. Sorry.

13. You guys added 720$ Turbo 4 Mans but you did not add 640 re speed 4mans, possible you can do that please.

- Whoops. We did add them, but they were PLH by accident. All fixed.

14. Whatever happened to the hand history beta?

- It's still around. It was offline for a couple of days because we were upgrading the system, but now it's back and we're adding more people every week.

15. do the tokens have FTP branding on them? If so, doesn't this partially dilute their value as a security measure.

- They're currently unbranded. I believe there will be an option soon to have a branded version as well.

16. Can you please let us be able to adjust the local time?

- Planned, but I don't know when it will happen.

17. Allow multi-tabling features that help us open more tables more efficiently and quickly.

- We have some good stuff planned in this area.

18. Create notes on players that are offline.

- You can already do this, actually. You just need to use the Find Player interface. Type in the name and click Player Notes.

19. Sats are gone, Tier SNGs are still there tho

- We'll be fixing that at some point (right now Tiers aren't counted as satellites).

20. So, how about offering 2 tokens with a discount, like for 8k?

- We may do that. Either the Mobile+Physical bundle, or Two Physical bundle. I'll look into it.

21. Can I use two security keys interchangeably? Like I have a key sitting on my desk that I use most of the time, but if I'm out I can use my mobile phone app? Or do I have to disable the first one to use my backup?

- Yep, you can activate and use more than one, and either will work at login.

22. is it just me, or does your computer freeze when you hit the "last hand history" feature?

- It's not just you, but it's also not all that common. We are making some significant changes to the last hand window that should solve the problem.

23. Also, can you please make all super turbo's 5 min rounds? Currently your mtt's are 5 mins and sngs are 3.

- No plans to change that, sorry.

24. Where on web site does it list mobile info? I did a FAQ search of mobile and it said..."Unfortunately FTP is not compatible with PDAs, iPhones or mobile devices at this time."

- People are talking about the mobile security key, not playing on FTP with a mobile phone. That's not currently supported.

25. 7-Game HU Sng's

- Can do.

26. i would like for the "find player" window to pop up where I last closed it. I hate how it always pops up in the middle of the screen.

- I'll see if we can get it changed to remember where it last was.

27. can we have an "antes from the start" tourney that isn't a $2600 FTOPS put in to the regular sched?

- I'll look into it.

28. $216 lhe mtt added to weekly schedule

- Maybe.

29. also how about adding some shootout mtt's nightly.

- Probably.

30. Why isn't there a HU PLO tourney in the Mini FTOPS this time around?

- Because there wasn't a HU PLO tournament in the regular FTOPS. We'll bring it back, probably next time.

31. Does Full Tilt have any plans for adding Badugi or Triple Draw?

- At some point, most likely.

32. Why can't we convert tournament tokens to tournament dollars? I don't understand that. I never use the tokens because I don't play in $24+2 tourneys, but I'd play in smaller tourney with the tourney dollars.

- One of the reasons our $26 and $75 tournaments are so good is the token system. If we allowed players to turn tokens into T$, it would hurt those tournaments too much.

33. If I buy into the 750kgt with 43,000 points instead of cash and bust one of those awful 'pros', will I get my points back for the bounty or 200 bucks?

- The pro bounty is always paid in cash.

34. where is the mini ftops challenge ?

- It should be live now. Sorry for the delay.

35. Higher Buyin HU Stud Games Please $300-$500. + Turbos. (Stud Hi, Stud H/L, and Razz)

- I'll see what I can do.

36. can you put somewhere on the tournament lobby screen how many levels of late registration there is.

- Yes, this is planned.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US!

Doug

Re: FTP Answers 11/26

I hope it really is a fix for the short stacking issue. I really hate stars and don't want to move. It's so ghetto looking and the software is terrible. (Well, so was FTP's for a tiny bit, but it's fixed omg!)

Re: FTP Answers 11/26

Please change the rake of the 4-man HU SNG's to the same as pokerstars and Cake.
I can't see the logic in having a $1000 + $30 2 man HU sng and then a $640 + $30 4 man HU sng with the same rake.
Your pokerstars biggest competitor.... so start.... competing

Turn on
Options -> Standard cards at all sizes

If that does not give you cards that you like, then search the thread in Software forum looking for people making lores cards. https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/45...update-529530/ (warning, big thread).

Re: FTP Answers 11/26

Can we get some kind of reward program/level that promotes volume beyond the 200 points per day for Iron Man? The extra medals are nice, but largely irrelevant on a monetary scale. I'd like a more rewarding level, something like 500 points a day for 15 days a month, so I put in more volume (and pay more rake) but don't have to play at least one set 25 days a month. Iron Man Excel or something similar. Just a thought...

Re: FTP Answers 11/26

Personally vip-systems where you have to play x points per DAY are ******ed. I may play 3k points in a day and my bonuses suck because I'm not ironman.

Agree, just reward people for their overall volume per month.

Re: FTP Answers 11/26

Doug-

late registration is an issue for me. most tournament are one level, but some are two, and occasionally there's a full four levels right? its fairly confusing. can you put on the tournament window somethin like-
- levels of late registration remaining
- countdown timer of minutes left until late registration is over

or maybe some kind of option for an alarm or popup when the X guaranteed tournament is ending late registration in <1 min.

thanks
