Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

Hi Alex. I deposited on Micro for the first time in a while, and as soon as I clicked to open a cash game table with only one player sitting at it all but one seat was taken.

Is scripting allowed on the site?

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

Seating scripts are currently allowed unless they rely on datamined hands. Our approach to scripts is to change the software such that they won't work anymore. The new client does not allow table or seat selection and hence, there is little point using a script.

Sirin, the behaviour you saw doesn't necessarily mean that your opponents were using scripts. The group lobby (in all clients) seats people in a way so as to fill up empty tables as quickly as possible. It is more likely that several players just clicked 'Play' in short succession, and our group lobby mechanism sat them all at the same table.

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

Will you consider lowering the rake in heads up sng-s? For example a 215 hyper on mpn includes 9€ rake, whereas on party that has similar rakeback conditions they only charge 3.3$, nearly 3 times less.

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

New customer to the site, long time online player, my thoughts:

This site is missing some FUNDAMENTAL features...

- ability to tile and stack as other sites do
- folded cards should disappear (this drives me crazy multi-tabling)
- no customizable bet buttons
- no "sit out next BB"
- no custom buy-in and re-buy options
- lobby option to look for tables with a minimum number of players, heads-up doesn't interest me.

Don't get me wrong, I want the site to be great. There are some pros however:

- ability to change screen name (anonymous is good)
- no HUDs (this coming from a habitual HUD user, I think they're generally bad for the game)
- decent gameplay overall

We will certainly consider it. Rake and fees are something that we review periodically, I will flag this particular point for review.

Thank you - the specific feedback is super helpful. Almost all of this is on our backlog for the future, it's just a question of priority.

For some reason client is taking forever to load and open for me today.

Anyone else experiencing this and/or know the reason?

I also recently registered on the new software and I'm long time player and basically can back up all of this except the custom buy-in part.
I think the set buy-in amount looks and feels good and probably should be the standard in the industry. Yes, recs are forced to sit with more money presumably, but on the other hand its the same experience as buying-in for an MTT which is great imo.

---
I think Alex and team should consider forcing everyone on the new software even with its shortcomings, because right now people who use new software are at big disadvantage to those who have access to the lobby in its old format. I personally played many 4 table sessions already on the new software and its absolutely playable even with the missing fundamentals.
Love the new lobby system (when everyone is on it tho!), but it really needs feature like table starter and/or choosing not to play 2 or 3 handed. The forced HU sitaution is extremely annoying in both of its extremes. Either you play only 1-2hands and people sit out, or you get into high variance battle waiting for people to join.

Without implementing a must have features like many players previously stated they shouldn't move everyone to new software.They said already they will not force people to a new software until a new software meets players expectations.That would hurt their playerbase too much.

Yes, I understand I'm contradicting myself a little bit, but then why their new market(Bulgaria) is by default on the new software without option for the old one? Now I'm forced to clear my welcome bonus at a disadvantage. ( I didn't know about the software situation before activating it.)

+1

Alex, you asked to be specific in one of your replies. Features listed above(and I've listed most of them in one of my prior posts) are a must to be implemented ASAP.

Also, showing a mucked hand at showdown, since players with old client do get to see it.

As far as aesthetics go, it's subjective and ultimately a secondary concern. I think it could be solved if there was an option to customise table/background colours, have several decks to choose from as the current one is ugly and especially sounds as currently alerts are to harsh and annoying IMO, especially that sound when the hand is over.

But again, implementing basic features is more important.

Non-cashable points can be used to buy into any tournament with a Loyalty Point buy in enabled (Most of them)

Why and how are the loyalty points divided into cashable and non-cashable?

Yeah, you are definitely right for somebody who don't have option to play at old software has clearly disadvantages.Maybe this could be because of some regulations for Bulgaria or did you ask to your customer services for download link to old software?Some of the players from here downloaded the old software from different links than their poker sites.Right now I can't find old software link for my poker site too.

I hope it won't take long to implement those key features to a new software as old software's bugs increasing everyday.

I sat at a 2/4 table late at night, there was only one table open with one person sitting at it, so it would be a big coincidence if four other people sat down at exactly the same time. As soon as I stoop up it went back to being one person sitting also. Definitely not a welcoming environment, I don't see why you couldn't just watch lobbies, note who is doing this, and warn them not to, with the threat of confiscating funds for repeat offences.

Good to hear the new client won't have scripts though.

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network Thread

Hi, are you aware that remove from the table after period inactivity still not working properly for old MPN soft?
Today I have been sitting out less than 5 mins and got kicked out off the table I myself started. I have sat out even before posting the blinds, there is no way I missed 3 orbits or 5 mins. I had a number of tables open and sit out at those earlier and haven't been kicked out of any of them.
