Re: MPN Online Tournament Feedback Thread

I really despise the 1R 1A Rebuy games and even 2R 1A because you can use up all your Rebuys then you ca no longer play any further and add-on, which is tilting for the player and MPN loose out on Buyins/rake

Why not replace all the 1R1A / 2R1A games into a branded "Flash Rebuy" series; where the Rebuy time is, for example, half the time of a normal Rebuy tournament; effectively the opposite of the gamble-heavy, Rebuy-heavy "Monster Rebuys"

I would think this would effectively make players Rebuy 1-3 times so its pretty close to a 1R1A or 2R1A tournament anyway but with the advantage of not letting players bust out before the add-on

1R1As are still proving to be incredibly popular on MPN, and while they are we are unlikely to change how they work. Many players also prefer to know the maximum amount that they could be in a tournament for

Re: MPN Online Tournament Feedback Thread

Totally understandable... Maybe you could change all the 1R1A and 2R1A games into to a series/system called "Three Bullets" / "Four Bullets" where a player can buying three/four times at any time, all at the beginning or just one by one?

You could make these differ from re-entry by having progressively more chips per bullet so as to mirror the better cash-to-chips value of the add-on; like the first entry is $5 for 2K, the second bullet is $5 for 3K, the third bullet $5 for 4K etc?

This would induce more rake for MPN and bigger prize pools as players are incentivized to fire more bullets, it provides a different and (imo) interesting take on the rebuy format which is needed for a network that specializes in the rebuy format, it also provides more player flexibility to always reach the end of the rebuy period and players still know how much the tournament could cost them

A few of these suggestions are not currently possible on the system. The 1R1A tournaments are incredibly popular on MPN and will continue to remain as is unless that changes

Re: MPN Online Tournament Feedback Thread

My final comments on the subject would be to at least make them 2R and 1A which makes a pretty positive impact on the things we have discussed; increased rake for MON, larger prize pools, less risk of overlays, players are less likely to bust before reaching the add-on and players still know the maximum they can buy in for

Good idea, however I'll make it a 3 Seat guarantee instead of 5, rest will be the same format
