****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

This thread is designed to help let players give feedback to 888 on mtts they are offerring or could offer, since stars reps don't give any feedback, lets embrace 888 and offer them our suggestions.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

Hey 888, congratulations on being a really good competitor to the forever monopolising Pokerstars. One thing that I posted on my twitter was the ads youre using on 2p2 are for 2013 WSOP, not 2015!

I really like the Volcano and Hurricane you added, great moves.

What do you think about doing the Whale on Saturdays rather than Sundays and using the mega deep structure to make it possibly a 2 day? Maybe this is a bad suggestion

I hope you use this thread to get feedback from us, I'm sure a lot of people will try to help out.

However time to act/timebank work currently I time out ALL the time and it puts me off adding in 888 tables. Sort this out and I'm on board.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

can you please keep the lobby from minimizing whenever a table opens?

also i believe the option doesnt exist but i may be wrog but could you pleae make the minimum increment of betting become the small blind and not the big? i aleays end up mashing the 50% or 75% pot button preflop when i wanna make it 2.5 big blinds which is rly annoying (393 at 75/150 just looks weird) and since i play on four sites i tend to not have enough time to type proper preflop bets. ideally i d love to se custon betsize buttons for pre and post flop where u just save ur preferred betsizings

Thread is a good idea as long as 888 read it but knocking stars straight off the bat is silly

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

I think establishing something resembling healthy competition can only be good for all parties involved. Just look at how much more thought is being put into the French poker market because of winamax being I believe bigger than stars? If 888 as the most likely candidate can actually get big then stars will have to reply accordingly and this certainly is a step in that direction

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

hey 888 i now play 80% of my volume on your site, i like alot of things you do, tomatoe throwing being the best... however to make your site a site that people (mtt grinders) can play solely on 888 there needs to be more added to the schedule. the $4r (and turbo) and $11r are great mtts, why not fling a couple more in, or put a bigger guarante on the $20r $1.5k

as for the monday twins special, i think it would be great for you to add 3 tiers to this and have the
$22 twins
$55 twins
$109-$160 twins all starting around same time, even throw a $10k guara on them they will absolutely crush this

saturdays need something as well the $50r and sat special are good, but i think u need a sat major like make the $50r a $50k guara or put on a $109 $50k like the tuesday highroller structure (one of the best mtts online imo)

but thats all dreams. we definately need some more $11-$66 $5k -$10k guarante weather it be 1r cubed or freezeout there has to be 3-4 more added to daily schedule to keep screen full of 888 tables and not have to deviate from your site

theres a huge hole been left by FR sites for a mass of UK regs and with pokerstars not giving a flying FCUK about what the player want this thread is a great opportinty for you guys to capitalise hugely on this so please take into consideration what the masses want

oh and lastly please fix the structure in the monsoon, its the greatest value daily $55 freeze imo but the last 40 down is a total punt fest average stack at FT is usualy 16bss this is terrible imo but upwards and onwards

OH and the timebank is the worst of any site 888 you dont offer a auto timebak option, this puts a huge number of players off playing your site stars/winamax have it auto if ur ante or in a pot you should try match or have a option to auto TBank

+1, some custom buttons would be perfect and can't be that hard to develop.

all great ideas imo, monsoon structure being the most important to change. I love that tournament but f2t are just a joke, it's not even that big and starts rather early so please do smth for the structure in the late stages, especially with how top heavy your payout structures are it's ridic to have such a bad structure.

enable deals imo, this wasn't an issue when the site was smaller but with tournaments like the sunday mega deep and a really top heavy structure this is a must. mostly wrt recs, you do a good job having plenty sats and I'm sure two recs battling a deep HU on monday morning would like to split the moneyz when payjumps are high.

Not only the structure of the monsoon, but also the 11r 5k/55ko's end up being a turbo but maybe this is on purpose. gogo 888

ya truth, just don't play them as often anymore as I've said goodbye to the #bowlcompgrind.

on that note, how about having a proper KO? the 55$ super ko ~15:20 CET or w/e is max withered, would be nice to see that having 2k+ first.

Also, please don't ask me if I want to see the hand history of a tournament I just bust, it's like an automated rubdown and 0% of the time does anyone want to do this.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

Software issues are the most important, timebank + needs to be easier to read the relevant information off the table. I can't make an 888 table as small as a stars/ftp one since its too hard to see who's in the hand, stacksizes, bet size, pot size.

Slightly bigger font would be nice. Also if you could make the table width match the standard stars/ FTP soze it would make things a lot easier

this is severely tilting should have an option to disable this, and i for one hope deals are never encouraged at 888, its one of its best traits, even tho im always a bridesmaid it is always better when u get the gold and no option of a chop makes for better FT dynamics
