Re: Partypoker about to announce big changes?

I've been running the PT4 trial, getting used to the different software (ran HE Mgr back in the day) and now I don't even know if I'm gonna purchase it. Seems like a waste. I'm pretty frustrated with this whole thing. I really don't want to play on PS but I may be forced to. I can handle no HUDs I suppose, but no saveable HHs and anonymous names? Hell no.

Even in live you can say "oh ya, I remember this guy" - now you're totally in the dark.

Are they going to anon names? I thought they are just removing the hhs and you still see the playernames like before and can make notes.

Yea, but now they have this amazing algorithm that already caught every single bot on the site and will catch everyone trying to use illegal software from now on..

Re: Partypoker about to announce big changes?

I genuinely want to know why party poker can’t improve their software to the level of PokerStars? This is in no way meant to be a troll but i am sure (like many of you here) despite loathing some of the changes on stars that they have unquestionably the smoothest software. Why is it so hard to improve the software? WhAt does it actually require?

I’ve tried a few times to move over esp after some update has been made and they say it’s better (admittedly it is) but still doesn’t quite get as good as stars.

You first put me on massive tilt but then I realized you are joking.

I reported like 10 bots to their VIP skype guy, who forwarded it to the fraud team. Some of them got banned after like 3 months. NOW, there are new bots from Bulgaria and Russia back on and grind it like they used to do it. They also collude like hell.

On Party, there are no recs from Belarus/Latvia and even Russia. At least not in my games. I doubt botters from Russia will have a super easy time to play if they have to relocate to let's say UK. Some will make it certainly, but it won't be as easy.

Angry Re: Partypoker about to announce big changes?

Let's be clear. Having no HH without making it anonym is total nonsence.

So it is either

A: it is not going to be anonym, and everyone is going to use illegal softwere, makes no sense.

B: it is going to be anonym, would be much harder to detect bots, as users would have no clue, couldn't help the bot hunting hero team.

so they are either this stupid, and did not think this through, or they belive that short therm gain in traffic with bots is higher priority than long therm healthy ecosystem. it is ****ed up for regs anyway. RIP Party.

Re: Partypoker about to announce big changes?

Partys aim is to keep the money longer in the game and convert it into rake and so they do everything to reduce the hourly of better players (other thing is for example this new Cashgame/Leakbuster-Report in the software...). Huds are part of online poker over the last 10 years, nobody, even the most fish, likes to play 1-tabling, its just boring, but without hud multitabling is very hard. So traffic and the amount of players with a good hourly will be going down, but both is essential that online-poker works (winning-player works like a multiplier who send a message to their friends and to the world, look, I'm no rocket scientist, but I can make money with poker, try it too and maybe its possible for u too...).

And in past u dont have to be a real top-player to make at least some smaller money with poker. If there would be a world-ranking list u could be for example around place 1000 and it was still possible to make some money, because even a fish could find games with bigger fishes (and that was a hope/vision that keep the games alive, a fish-players inside truely know that he is probably not to greatest player in the world, but it dont matter, if it still possible to make money and find worser opponents) and this has poker make great and both sides, the players and the providers gains from that. Nowaday providers change the conditions more and more to increase their short term profits but in long term view it will not work and its like a shoot yourself in the leg.

If this changes are made, I withdraw all my money and never play one single hand again on party poker. And additional I advise all my buddies (and some are big fishes who spend much money so far) to do the same!
