Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

Hi All,

This will serve as the MTTc suggestion/comments/feedback thread for MTTs on MPN. We have launched our own sub-forum in IP this week and it has been suggested that we make a thread here too to get more eyes and opinions on our tournament offerings.

You can find our sub-forum here: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/2...poker-network/

Our general information & feedback thread: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/2...hread-1718857/

This thread in MTTc will only be for tournament related topics. For anything else please see the thread linked directly above.

We have gotten a lot of feedback on our Blinds Structures. This is being discussed internally and we should have something new by the end of the week. Hopefully this will satisfy a lot more than the current structures.

We have implemented a lot of the ideas from the Tournament Feedback Thread in our sub-forum. Feel free to post your ideas here or there, we will be active in both.

UCOP will be in September again this year, from the 9th – 23rd. €1M Guaranteed over the course of the series, with a €100K Main Event. Further details in the next post.

Currently our tournament schedule is made up of the below:



This is only the guaranteed tournaments, not including satellites or feeders. Please see post #3 for sattys and direct feeder info.

Looking forward to comments and ideas from current MPN players, former MPN players and hopefully new to MPN players too!

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

To help reach and hopefully surpass the €1,000,000 guarantee, we will be offering over 360 satellites each day (both for UCOP tickets and direct feeders to certain events). These will be seen in the lobby in mid-August and begin on the 19th August

Some of the featured sattys:

100 Seat Mega Feeder to the Main Event - €22 FO, so 1/5.5 players will be directly fed into the Main Event. Date of this is TBC, but will most likely be on the day of the Main Event
A Daily 11c (€0.11) Monster Rebuy Feeder to the 100 Seat Mega Feeder mentioned above. 1 Seat Guaranteed
A Weekly (Sunday) 11c (€0.11) Monster Rebuy Feeder to the €100K Main Event. 1 Seat Guaranteed
15 Direct Seats to the Main Event guaranteed each day across a range of different formats and buy-ins. This number will be upped considerably on Sundays
34 Direct Seats to the 100 Seat Mega Feeder guaranteed each day, again across different formats and buy-ins, and will be upped on Sundays
2 Direct Seats to the €40K High Roller guaranteed each day
There will also be a Freeroll Feeder to the Main Event for any players that play at least 10 €11+ UCOP Satellites. 3 Seats to the Main Event are guaranteed in this. It will be held a few hours before the Main Event itself

In total, there will be over €16,000 guaranteed each day in sattys!

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

Is it possible to show a generall payout structure in the tournament lobby? Like pay 12 when entrants are 80-95. The payout structue/places pay seems to vary from tournament to tournament. Exp: one rebuy tourney with 79 runners paid 5 people while one other rebuy with 68 runners paid 12. How does that make sense?

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

Can we get a daily €50 freezeout please?? works well on Ipoker and I believe it would run better than the 100 freezeout. Also the Riveting 10 1r1a seems to have gone, bring that back with unlimited rebuys, will smash the old guarantee.

Agree that paying 5 from 79 is too steep.

Why there are no tournaments for Micro players in your upcoming series? Something like $3.3 1k gtd FO would have been nice. If necessary add re-rentry option. Likewise I would like to see $3.3 500gtd in your daily schedule.

I also think that your daily schedule is overloaded with rebuy tournaments. I would prefer that some of them are replaced with re-rentry tournaments because it is cheaper for players. For instance, I would have played 1,5k Daily Mini Mosh Pit if it was re-reentry. Since it is rebuy I will spend at least $11 (minimal buy-in plus add-on) which is much more expensive.

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

I really like MPN. It's bit sad that GTD's decreased in the past 6 months. Would be great if you could increase them, maybe more marketing is required to attract players to achieve that.
The payout structure is great.
11+R Turbo/Regular speed games are great and pretty much always hits gtd's, please try incresasing gtd's there.

Thanks for pointing this out. The Two Squared had a REALLY old payout structure set. I have now updated this, so it has the same as the €400 Turbo Monster Rebuy. If you notice anymore, please post or PM me!

There is a €55 FO at 22:00 UK Time (21:00 GMT), the €1,200 Avalon. It has been running pretty consistently for the last couple of weeks.

Are you wanting to replace the Gigabyte with this? This might be too close, in buy-in, to the €33 €1,200 Megabyte at the same time. We are hoping that the Gigabyte begins to take off again

We did go back and forth regarding this, and it was decided that we would cater to smaller stakes players by offering a ton of ticket and direct feeder satellites each day. While playing a €2.20 Mega or a €3.30 Turbo Freezeout Satellite to a much larger event, is not the same as playing a €3.30 event itself, we did think that the first option was the best course. If there is enough feedback to add back in smaller events, that we can look at doing some mini events alongside the larger events for the next tournament series.

I do not see a €3.30 FO €500 GTD being feasible on the site currently, unfortunately.

Unfortunately a true re-entry is not actually available on MPN at this time - it is coming soon though. We have some Booster Events* for UCOP, which I will look at bringing into the schedule on a daily basis.

*Booster Events = A tournament that offers the option of ONE additional starting stack when a player is at or below the starting stack of the tournament, anytime before late registration closes, for a discount, eg a €5.50 would have a €3.30 booster.

Good idea. Thoughts on times and guarantees? FOs or Rs or 1R1As?

During June/July most sites get hit with the seasonal decline in numbers, so we had to lower the larger guarantees for those months. The World Cup being on at the same time did not help either! I have been watching the client and reports closely, and have been increasing tournaments as numbers allow. For example, the Lost Vegas has gone from €1,400 to €1,500 and then within a few days its up at €1,777 - I hope that this can go to €2K very soon. You can check the updates on that here:

Yes I see the Avalon but that is a turbo, which is fine but make a €55 reg speed FO at around 8pm and it will rocket, trust me. Maybe make it 1 re entry or something, seen as its the norm these days.

Yea i like the idea like the iPoker one, 10K stack and 5K guaranteed, it should replace the gigabyte more people are going to enter this tournament and it can be more sats.

Scatter them troughout the day and get some FO and Rebuys. Maybe start 1 game at every full hour, all of them turbo, maybe hyper at "dead hours" like 2am - 9am

so like
10 am 25c
11 am 55c
12 am 75c
1 pm 25c r
2 pm 55c r
3 pm 75c r
4 pm 25c
5 pm 55c
6 pm 75c
7pm 25c r
8pm 55c r
9pm 75c r
10pm 25c
11 pm 55c
12 pm 75c
1 am 25c r
2 am 55c r
3 am 75c r
4 am 25c
5 am 55c
6 am 75c
7 am 25c r
8 am 55c r
9 am 75c r
----
10 am 25c again

Although I play only 110 Gigabyte and skip 30 one. I would agree that 50 euro with bigger gtd could work better replacing them. You can do it all days too. Please try this

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

I like the site but there are just way too many rebuy's. 11euro rebuys are basically mid-stakes and there isn't a ton of options for lower stakes players, would personally prefer some more 3,5,11 f/o and or re-entry.

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

I will address the comments above in a bit, but first:

Antes from start, new blind levels, removed some early levels, added in a lot more play near the end. Please give comments etc on this



Most freezeouts will start with a 5K stack. Larger tournaments will be 7.5K - 10K. Deepstacks (for upcoming UCOP anyway) will be 15K

Most rebuys will be 3K stack. Some will be 4K - 5K, a few will be less

Yellow on the rebuy section is generally where the rebuy period ends. Most are after levels 9 or 10. The Monsters end after level 20. Then a few tournaments would end after level 6, and others after levels 12 & 15, but its not too common

Green is where we added in 2 "repeating" levels, the blinds remain the same, but it takes the ante from the next level. There are just 2 of these, and allow more play in the rebuy events (after most addons will occur)

If this is generally liked, we can put it up on a few tournaments to test out

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

No reason not to have ante's from the start. Better for everyone. Not sure if your software allows it but adding 1 re entry to every tournament would be a good start to increase prizepools a bit

Imo 13% ante is the norm in 2018 (as seen in your green levels)

Disappointing to read the reps reply above and +1 to Jambo's post...

I have a MPN account but, after having set it up/verifying/depositing etc...and playing MTT's for a couple of weeks, I found there just simply wasn't enough for me to play at the lower stakes (excluding re-buys, which I didn't wan't to play). I wan't to feel like it's worth my while logging in to a poker site to play and currently that's not the case with MPN due to the schedule severely lacking in options for smaller stake players. It seems very much like the choice is restricted to either a re-buy or a re-buy!

I also liked the site and would consider coming back if you changed some of the re-buys into re-entry MTT's but, until that happens and the schedule for lower stakes players is addressed/improved, I will continue to play elsewhere.

For the record, I don't particularly wan't to play "a ton of satellites or ticket feeders" and would've jumped at the chance to play a stand alone event like the $3.30 $500 GTD FO previously suggested...

Re: Official MPN - Microgaming Poker Network MTTc Thread

A slightly modified version of the structure has gone live in for some tournaments today on MPN:

New Freezeout Structure Tournaments (GMT):

11:00 - €300 Cashapillar
12:30 - €200 Lunchtime Special
12:50 - €100 Early Bird Freezeout
14:15 - Mega Feeder to Big Top
16:00 - Mega Feeder to Gigabyte
15:15 - Mega Feeder to Gigabyte
18:05 - Mega Feeder to Mount Olympus
19:00 - €350 Kilobyte / €1,200 Megabyte / €3,000 Gigabyte
19:40 - Mega Feeder to Big Top

New Rebuys Structure Tournaments (GMT):

12:00 - €500 Break Away
13:30 - €500 Turbo Rebuy
16:00 - €1,777 Lost Vegas

17:05 - Early Bird Turbo Rebuy Feeder to Gigabyte
17:20 - Turbo Rebuy Feeder to 3 Seat Mega Feeder
20:10 - Turbo Rebuy Feeder to 3 Seat Mega Feeder

Hopefully there will be no disasters and then can be implemented in more tournaments!
