Pokerstars VIP club changes plan removal of SNE

http://www.pokerstarsru.com/ru/vip/changes/

Hot off the press from the russian side of Pokerstars.

Here's some translations:

Quote:
Average awards in 2016
Supernova - Decrease by 0-27%
200 000+ points VPP - The decrease of 44-60%
and this one is special. I hope it's just a realllly bad translation.

Quote:
So, what will change for high-level players? On January 1st 2016, we will review the system of rewards, to limit the motivation to play just for the sake of winning.
and lastly

Quote:
From 1 January 2017 VIP-Supernova Elite status will be abolished

oh and I missed this gem:

Quote:
Finally, to recoup significant costs (including the high cost of transactions for deposits and withdrawals) on offer cash games with high stakes, players will no longer get points VPP in Pot Limit and No Limit with blinds of $ 5- $ 10 and up, the gaming mix 8 games - with blinds of $ 10- $ 20 and above, and in other fixed limit games - with blinds of $ 10- $ 15 and above.

Re: Pokerstars VIP club changes plan removal of SNE

Is there any chance these changes are specific to the Russian market and represent Stars' 'grey' response (discouraging-without-outright-banning) to the 'grey market' that apparently Russia is?

Edit: this has been passed around with the google translate reading of it. I see it hasn't been posted here but the quote is exactly as it is in the google translation.

Re: Pokerstars VIP club changes plan removal of SNE

for the sake of balance, I'll chime in and point out that they're apparently increasing the VPP multiplier for UK players back to 5.5 from 5, which would be a consolation for some.

But yeah, overall it's going to suck for everyone as loads of mass-volume crushers who've been making money mostly through the VIP system are now forced to drop down through the ecosystem and focus on winrate over volume, thus making life harder for everyone else.

Re: Pokerstars VIP club changes plan removal of SNE

So they gave away 10millions in SPiN&GO and now remove decent rb system (obv it was not too good but not too bad).

Whats the point giving 10millions to fish players in Spin&GO ? Like ok , you can donate 5millions but another 5millions Pokerstars can invest in stuff to improve ecology/system/bonuses and stuff. wtf they doing ?

They didn't give away 10 million that 10 million was taken from people who hit 2x multipliers.
