We aren't aware of any network-wide issues that happened during the time you mention. If you experienced any losses due to the issues, please contact your poker room so they can help.

It's working fine for us - can you provide any more information? What poker room are you playing with, what are your filter settings and is this still happening for you?

So please make sure that the note gets added automatically across all tables for the specific player, I hope you understand what I mean.
Wow, that is just silly. Don't worry, it will work properly in the new client.

This is the first report I've seen of this specific issue, but we have had a few similar complaints in the past week which we are trying to figure out. Could you please contact your poker room? Please tell them what device you are using, what OS, what language and what graphics card you have (or as much of this info as you know). They will escalate to us.

Thank you for this and your other feedback. We are using a data-driven approach to improvement - every request we get for a feature makes it slightly higher priority on our backlog, all else being equal.

Quote:
-Cut the 'we are aiming to be the best poker software on the planet'. No one is ever getting close to stars, find a more achievable goal that your customers can believe.
I suppose it depends on how you judge 'best'. If you want the largest number of features, I agree we are not getting close to Stars. This is not our goal.

If it's about quality - empathy with the user, UX that follows best practices, learning from the past mistakes of ourselves and others, being ruthlessly efficient and making good priority choices - then I think we have a fighting chance.

You might not know that I used to work at Stars, designing software features. I wrote about some of this work on an old personal blog: https://blog.alexscott.eu/2012/11/de...-features.html

I have learned a lot since then, especially about best practice in software development which is something I have studied extensively since. I can now recognise the mistakes (or deviations from best practice) at the other big poker sites, as well as the mistakes I used to make myself.

Poker software in general is way behind the times. Almost nobody is following best practice, almost everybody has huge legacy issues, and many of the largest operators are building on a quicksand of technical debt. We are among the first wave of software providers to recognise this and make a change, and I believe that over the course of time this will give us an advantage.

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

Thanks Alex. With the table closing issue, if it happens again I'll take a screeshot. FYI, a message in a grey box appears saying something like 'you've been removed from this table'.

Looked at the info box again and there is info that no one could need. I would love to find a player who cares about the amount of total rebuys in the tournie and addons (which is shown from before the addon period is active). I'll repeat what others have said and just go with, copy the info in the stars equivalent. I also think that as its a nice grey'ed out feature and only takes up the side of the table, you could make it full length of the screen and include the whole payout info there.

One thing I do like is how some of your major tournies are highlighted, but I think this is way under-used. You could have 3/4 different colours and use them for your live events/mega sats and operator specific tournies.

I took some time to go over this thread and would agree that the banners are too large and there is a lot of dead space in the lobby.

Comparing my memories of the old lobby, which had quite a nice side bar for your promos/info. I'd def look at making a small section for that in the top left of right, taking some space from the operators logos. Certainly make sure that they are regularly updated tho, I remember grinding on betsson a few months back and it still advertising a MTT series that was 6 months finished.

The MTT mission wasn't mentioned at all in the lobby, bar the tounries themselves.

Going on from my point about marketting, I checked my spam emails. I didn't go one email from 4/5 operators about the MTT mission promo. You need to really kick them into action. You can do all you want with the software, but if no one knows whats going on, then no one will play.

Yeah, sure, thanks poker manager! 30 mins I will battle other reg HU having little to no edge while everyone else is sitting out waiting for another sitout player to get kicked out and being hopeful rec player joins before he gets kicked out himself. Would poker manager mind at least check if they have no problems playing other tables while being sitting out at this special one where there is no rec player (he is in process of bringing $ to the table)??

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

Hello Everyone,
I am using Mac Client and have some questions below.
- Auto-Switch Table function is not working. Did you cancel it intentionally ? It is really impossible to switching tables manually while multi tabling.
- Time Countdown seems to be too short.
- I hate to be made sit down on an empty table, or on a table with 1 player seated only. You must give us an option to at least choose min seated player. You can just collect sit down requests and once it becomes enough for a full table, then you can make people auto sit.
- Table Tiling function is not working properly. Numbers become too small and unreadable when you tile 4-6 tables.
- All these changes make me think that this new client aims to stop serious players playin on MPN. If this is the case, please communicate it and we can just look for someone else. I can understand that you want to stop sharks targeting people in the lobby but at least give us the possibility to multi table effectively.

Regards

For my understanding, you can reply the hand within the software but there is no way to save hand histories to your hard drive (read: import into HM2/PT4) anymore since the new update right?

The 22 deep never runs, also can we possible add some 22 200 gtd? i think 1 would work well along side the daily express, or maybe a 33 there

They haven't added any kind of support for trackers.
In old client you can import the hands you put money in the pot (VPIP or in the blinds) in older version of trackers.

I haven't played on MPN since Stan James left. Those fish party games changed in past 6-12 months? Got a link to current rake and info on them as don't see any info on them in the MPN sites I checked so far?

I think it is 5% rake + 0,85% for jackpot. Overall effective rake 5,85%.

Just found this though quickly by google:

Quote:
On December 14th, we’re reducing the effective rake on Fish Party SNGs from 10.17% to 5.85%.
https://mpn.poker/building-better-fish-party/

Alex can probably have more certain information.

About my earlier case, currently filters working for me, but last weekend they just did nothing no matter what I tried to filter (showed all games nevertheless). So no problem now.

Where are you trying to download the client from? What device are you using?

You can see the payout tables in the client, just navigate to the Fish Party tab and it's on the right hand side. If there's another piece of information that you need let me know.

That's very strange. If it happens again, please will you take a screenshot and a note of the exact time? It may help us to pinpoint the issue.

In these early releases, we've focused on table tiling. Support for stacked table layouts will be introduced in the future.

Quote:
- Time Countdown seems to be too short.
The time to act varies depending on the game type - it can be anything from 10 seconds (turbo cash games) to 30 seconds (deep stacked tournaments). What game were you playing?

Agreed. This is on the list.

This is definitely not our aim - however, we are primarily a recreational network and the vast majority of our players are not multi-tabling, so we have focused most of our early efforts on the single-table experience. We are taking the feedback we get very seriously and have made some good progress so far. But there's plenty still to do.

Fair enough. I'll take this up with the moderators.

No autobank. If you are too slow to click it then play less tables. Atleast I'm happy that mpn is taking a different route than any other site. Pain in the butt when a player times out and the bank activates automatically and after that it ticks down and the player times out again.

Anyone playing "too many" tables will just buy 3rd party software to do it automatically anyway. Just like removing waitlists so there's no way to get onto a table without a 3rd party script or not writing hand histories so professionals buy 3rd party software to do it, it will just just make the recreational users experience worse, widen the gap with the people paying for 3rd party extras and in the end just annoy everyone off the site.

Would love to know how do you make fe a seating scprit for the new lobby prima has. Are you one of those script builders because you seem to be pretty sure you can make one for the timebank? You don't have autobank in ub and pretty sure there are no scripts either. And imo mpn is taking ubs way to offer games. Just play stars and any other site that you can use autobanks etc.
