If it was a $55 with 100x up top and a fast structure like you are suggesting, wouldnt you be complaining about that?

888rep are you willing to discuss changes to the rebuy formats? or are they going to stay the same?

# Please change back the rebuy stacks and add more of them, the $5 ones always surpass their guarantees. You can add at least one more Turbo and one Slow version and space them out a bit during peak times. I would also love a Turbo version of the 8-8-8 series at like 10pm UK time to end our sessions with and entice players to play a quicker games that doesn't end too late

# I agree that some of your games are a little too slow but we don't want the changes that other sites are doing. You actually have great structures for your tournaments overall. I think a key issue hear is the ridiculous length of your late registration which makes the tournaments last 60-120 minutes too long. You have so many re-entry games that players re-enter for another shot... only to get 10 big blinds! Personally i think 30 big blinds is the minimum. It also seems that the tournaments that have 200 minutes of late registration don't do as good as you would think; maybe lots of people are afraid of playing games where they know they will have to fire multiple bullets. I NEVER late register for tournaments with such long lat registration and have consequently avoided a lot of your XL offerings because i know they are setup to be closer to a lottery than poker. I, along with the other 99% of players out there, signed up for POKER

# Finally, as i have asked before, please sort out your VIP program. I wont even ask for the average industry standard of 30% or whatever but for players whom play $5-$50 tournaments, paying 50c-$5 in rake per game, getting a ticket worth less than 10 cents is just a slap in the face. Make the prizes worth while, even if we win nothing more often. You should have the prizes available to a given player based on their volume. For example low-volume players can win $1 tickets or a 10% deposit bonus. Medium-volume players can win $5 or $10 tickets and high-volume players can win $100 tickets or exclusive access to your land based events etc. All you do with offering these login free rolls is to allow players to play poker for free or very cheaply when you need to incentivize them to deposit otherwise the entire ecosystem is destined to die out

+1 A turbo version of the 8-8-8 tournament would be perfect, around 10:30pm UK time as to not collide with the turbo swordfish

Maybe a better way to speed up Tornado, if you cant just leave it as it was before cutting levels, is to return levels that you removed and to speed up level durations to 12min. Maybe im wrong, but it feels like a more fun to play than this 15mins format without t700 t1400 etc .

Have to admit this series has been underwhelimg. The few events that were actually added were all great but the dailies were all just lackluster and repetitive with small guarantees

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

can you make Cyclone start 1 hour earlier please ? or make it 19 minutes earlier and 10 min levels. now it ends too late and there is nothing else to play around that time .it used to be a great tournament but got worse and worse since they removed the nightlys on stars.I think it could benefit from being closer to the Late Night Swordfish and Mini Late Night Crocodile.

btw I think all tournaments should start at 01 instead of 00 now that you have 6 min breaks.
