hey guys,im not sure what this means
here is a promotion that gives 50% of our deposits with our buy ins , but when we make a deposit , we can back max 50$of our buy ins???so why would they write that we can get UP TO 50% OF OUR DEPOSIT AMOUNT if it is minimum to deposit 575 and we can get only 50 back?

Not MTT related but a RSA token of some kind would be nice.

Also your schedule lacks nano games. Years ago you had that sweet 8cent rebuy, all your games are at least 1$ now if somebody doesn't want to play the 1c/10c steps. I mean seriously, the only games we can play with the steps are 1$ games( but no MTT, only SNGs), 55$ games or the 160$ Crocodile. That's a bit sick of variance for nano players.
We’ve added a Wacko tournament to run at 21:05 GMT as of tonight

Why we want to keep the Step system for the Premium events, we will look at a couple of other “exit points” in the coming weeks.

888 gave me a 90$ sunday ticket because of this thread

nice


The 1k GTD Wacko turned out a prize pool of 1904$.

I think people love this action packed tourney in the evening. Try increasing the GTD and see what happens.

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

sat next to the guy who runs the tournament schedule at 888. great guy, i trust him and he was very opening to listening to advice.

i told him every 100$ comp that is 6-8k should be pumped to 10k prizepools for pocket fives points, some regs cut off for regging a comp is 10k prizepool.

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

Hi 888, hope you are reading this thread. In general you guys have done an amazing job becoming the second best site to play on in terms of traffic and overall game selection. I play on your site every single day, almost all buyins so I do have a fair amount of input!

However the lobby is very distracting and filled with too many satellites that either don't run or are an unnecessarily low buyin. Newer players only look at the tournaments in the late registration status tab and play whatever is running and most attractive tournament(s). Get rid of some of the smaller buyin (under2) tournaments that see tiny fields.

The 20 rebuys:
The 22+R2k could easily run with a 5-10k guarantee .
The nightly 20+R (12r20a) is a great tourney that needs a 5k+ guarantee as it smashes the 3k.

The 11 +r 5k as mentioned also needs an increase (10k).
Please add a 5+R-16.50 somewhere in the schedule before the late 20:00 5+r.

Add the Sunday SWAMP 25 buyin you run on Sundays 1k guarantee daily with a 1-2k guarantee.

The 109s (hurricane/tornado) could do with a 10k guarantee, (im not sure about the 6max)

Please address the gap between the 66 (6k) Cyclone at 21:20 and absolutely every mtt other than the 20+R.
Add a 55 15 minute level 5k starting stack with 2 hours into late reg and maybe some more ppl will grind later into the night. The nightly schedule is absolutely withered.

19:20 (2hours before the 66 cyclone)

Please fix autotime banks!

Need some more freezeout satties for your majors, the 35$ for sunday deepstack work pretty well, why rebuys only for mtts like the croco?

rebuys aren't that bad, considering the high rake on everything else.

2nd chance imho. if you bust, you either have to wait an hour for the next sat (if another one starts at all) or you just say I re-enter or don't play the target at all.

Including a plo8 event in the next xl series seems reasonable since theres dailies and regular cash game traffic of that game. Also theres already a plo hi event.

Playing the schedule every single day I realize there simply just needs more tournaments in the schedule. Your site has the traffic to support a lot more games.

Please add any tournaments ( 5-66) rebuys or freezeouts with a 5k guarantee+ (10k+ if 109+ ) anywhere in the daily schedule. Peak/off peak anywhere!

+1. I would certainly play that.

Also add NLO8 event. I would play that with even more certainty... currenly PLO8 / NLO8 is 3rd and 4th most (prob NLO8 first now) played poker variant online.

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

custom betting options and timebank would be

As many people said in this thread you can easily gain a lot more traffic from micro/low mtt grinders if you add some MTTS in that buy in range.. would love to see something like a 11$ freezeout with 8/10k gtd running daily aswell as more 5$ and 8$ freezouts (1.5k/2k gtd would be a good start and see how it evolves)

basicly you can have a lot of people moving traffic from stars to 888 due to recent #removethegtds greed from stars.

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

All of your tournaments that are 10 minute levels play out like a turbo at the end. Please add some extra levels somewhere. Anywhere.........


And please add antes at 50/100! Having the blinds go from 50/100 to 100/200 to 100/200 ante is ridiculously stupid.

And make the mooonson 12minute levels please!.


Edit=please add the 25 buyin swamp tournament daily with a 2k guarantee.

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

breeze and monsoon should have a bit more dynamic structures if it were to consider the tournament names.

a hurricane or a tornado named tournament should have faster structures ( 10 min levels)

breeze and monsoon should have dynamic structures as 10min levels at the early levels, 12min levels midgame and 15mins late game.

personally i like the hurricane most because it plays way better than the other tourneys cuz it has 15 min levels even tho its starting super late in the day


wed and fri challenges should be a bit different because they are basically the same tournament, a 35$. on every other day the challenge is something different and never repeats except for wed and fri.


and the 75hyper SHOT should be a shorthanded game

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

It really is amazing how much better the 12 and 15minute level tournaments play out as opposed to your 10 minute turboish structure.

Moonsoon and breeze please PLEASE make 12 minute levels. PLEASE

#antes50/100
#6max the shot

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

software:
-custom betslider options
-auto timebank option

tournaments:
-earlier antes (@50/100?)
-longer levels in some tourneys like the monsoon
-jump from bb3.5k to bb5k is too much imo (only applies to some structures)
-a thursday hsmtt would be sweet, maybe a 109r or something (and then maybe you can have a thursday croc similar to the one on tuesday)
-superXL series during scoop would be amazingly popular
-the saturday rebuy seems pretty meh, im sure a 215-320$ fo with a big gtd or something like that would do much better

Simple NO to every suggestion to rise 10 mins levels. If you want to your tournaments last for ages, go to Stars or wherever else but leave us even one site where regular tournament won't last whole day.

Um no. The so called 10 minute levels are basically turbos. They are a total punt final 27.

All we are asking is 12minute levels on the breeze and monsoon as they are "special" tournamets". Also some extra levels in the 10minute blind levels.
