Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

I feel like the tournament schedule needs work. As a player that plays on this site as well as all of your competitors, I can say for sure the selection as well as the structure falls well behind, and is preventing me from playing mtts on tour site. I only have so much real estate on my computer so I have to select the best mtts throughout the day, and after noon est, I feel like the guarantees are too low and the structure for buy ins 55 to 215 are poor compared to your competition. I love the site, I currently play 4 mtts a day with you and I enjoy them because the software is the best imo, but I wish there was more to play. At 8pm est when I'm at the most tables your guaranteed tourneys need a look. One of your competitors in their monster stack tourneys have 15k chips and 15 min levels.

Not really a huge fan of getting 3 hours into every tournament and the average stack size is 12 big blinds. Would love to see the structures tweaked. Thanks!

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread



Please consider changing these start times around. You are cannibalizing the tournaments and not a big enough network to start 3 tournaments at these buy-ins at the same time. There is nothing else in that range starting for another two hours so having two of them cancel is a huge waste.

Hi mate,
Thanks for this, I know we are constantly working on our schedule and looking to make improvements.
So please feel free to give us feedback on any of our tournaments or things you would like to see?

Maybe something new? or something you liked previously? new style/format?


Kind regards

Please consider using the structure of the phase tournaments in the daily tournament. You can leave reg open a few more levels but not many. Thanks

We shared so many ideias .... u started to do some changes but now its just more the same..
schedules fixed, structures fixed, chips in bbs,
new sunday formats,
the saturday schedule time
the sunday main poor structure without any changes about blinds and payouts,
the better sats for the 530 highrollers,
why is the 109 second chance one cut from the schedule? u removed mtts who crushed the gtd.. makes no sense i guess...
we shared tons of ideias, for all buy ins and formats. if u guys do nothing about it, obv ppl will stop sharing opinions.

tks

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

Mike - can you guys change one of the $11 50K GTD flights to start earlier, say 6PM or 7PM EST? 9PM EST is too late of a start for a lot of East coast players.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

Something has got to be done about these atrocious tournament structures, I can't be the only one who feels this way. I am currently playing a monster grind event and late reg was allowed to go for 3.5 hours. We were one player off the bubble with 2 minutes of late reg still left and 28 players instantly late regged and now we have been doing the bubble stall game for over a god damn hour. Meanwhile, all playable stacks shrink to an average of 14 BBs during this garbage and there will be 0 play left once the bubble eventually pops.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

The mac client does not have a hand history replayer, the windows client does. Is there a way to configure the mac client to do this? I'd like to rewatch my hands with the actual ui on the tournaments I've played on my mac.

If this isn't possible can this be a feature that's added to the mac client?

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

Dear Mike,

Recently you have carried out a big poll concerning MTT scheduling and structures. Are there any changes coming up in the nearest future?

Thank you very much for adding new levels to 109$+ tournaments. Bubble stages and final tables are much more playable now.

You have set up a “new” 55$ 35k$GTD tournament attended by a large number of players, but kept an old structure. This leads to averenge stack as 15bb at ITM stage, so it is more like bingo and less like poker.

Why have you cancelled 109$ "Monster" tournament at 8 p.m.? 22$, 55$ and 215$ tournaments start at this time. I see a certain mismatch in the schedule.

Also, 55$ tournament is lacking at 10 p.m. It had been there before, but then it was removed for some reason.

Sometimes there are overlays in the latest midnight 55$ tournament. Everybody finishes their sessions at this time and most of the people are quite tired. If the tournament could be moved one hour earlier, it would attract more participants. Also, it is possible to schedule 109$ tournament with 5K guarantee for the same time.

Furthermore, it would be nice to set up a couple of regular rebuy tournaments for 22$-33$ (12.5K Gtd) and 55$ (15K Gtd) at 8:30 p.m.

Thus, here is a list of changes that I propose:
1. Change the structure of 55$ tournaments (make it the same as in 109$+ tournaments).
2. Bring back the tournaments: 109$ at 8 p.m. and 55$ at 10 p.m.
3. Add two regular rebuy tournaments for 22$-33$ and 55$.
4. Move the latest 55$ tournament (which starts at midnight) up an hour and schedule one more 109$ (5KGtd) tournament for the same time.

I give you many thanks for considering other players’ opinion and especially for low rake!


Best regards,
Ebobo

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

^I would second virtually all of ebobo's comments, except i personally don't think 55r would attract many players on the regular. i think thats best left on weekend and make a 22/33r as a daily option that i think you'll find regularly fills a 10k maybe even 15k guarantee

gotta give credit where credit is due, you guys have listened to community feedback, done something about bots from time to time, and software is killer when i dont have connection issues. the VIP points obviously a misstep, but new weekly leaderboards are solid and i think the direction to go in for rewards (in addition to deposit bonuses and other things to attract all players to the room, not just grinders)

you did a promo a few months back where it was a race to complete a pretty diverse set of poker and casino objectives. i thought that was really cool competition that required you to showcase your versatility, but surely also exposed everyone to different types of games (i never wouldve played windfalls otherwise). i think you should do something like that again.

another suggestion i'd have is for this upcoming series, have a series-long leaderboard. your software is perfectly built for implementing something like that, and i bet you get a much stickier player base for the series and overfill guarantees. the leaderboard reward probably wouldnt even have to be that significant, people will compete for the spirit of the game

Pretty sure they are talking about the SNG leaderboards with the new separate leaderboard for the PKO SNGs.

Thanks for the suggestions, I believe the tournament schedule and structures will be due for a big shake up soon.
I know that we have a new tournament director joining the team and that he comes with a great reputation. This will help improve structures and the schedule 10 fold, which in turn will hopefully lead to larger gtds and attract more rec players.

Kind regards

Mike

That would be amazing, I remember 18 months ago BoL had the perfect structures and software. Now the current structures are some of the worst online and has driven some of my action elsewhere. Really excited to see these changes.
