+1000. I am wondering who has figured out in Party that nobody wants $22 games during peak hours.

They have also removed :30 turbos, hypers at the worst possible time as 888 has added PKOs supplemented by very nice satellites. As a result I played just 20% of my volume on Party today.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

I happen to play more on 888 nowadays too just because they offer more games at peak hours and a wider variety. Party just keeps removing games to accommodate big GTDs which is unnecessary. Cut the GTDs and give more games to play.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

Just played some drunk spin and goes, or whatever they are called. 250 - 1k prize pool, 99 < A7 (river, obvs). Next 250, 10 high flop for my k10, lose to jj. Next one, something I can't remember. Next one, k10, 10 hits river, done by qq.

Not really bothered that the spins are pretty much clearly rigged. What I would actually like to know, part rep, is why is it impossible for me to reverse my withdrawal in part? I have 2.4k pending, I would like to reverse 200. The software is not allowing this, I am not sure whether it's a "bug" or a "feature", but it's terrible.

For the haters - won, FT'd, ITM, busted, FT'd. Nodody needs my ID here.

don't Forget the micro area plz.

more 2,2/3,3 - 5,5 buy ins would be nice...more 8max (or 9handed)

you dont Need reduce the gtd...allways...a buy in Change could help too.
example: the big bounty hunter 19cet. 1,1 buy in 2,5k gtd. (i know i said it but i try it again) Change it to 3,3 buy in please- or as a compromise to 2,2 buy in. would be much more atractive. and it would hit the gtd -if not from day1 then after a short while...im sure.
(the at the same time starting 5,5 buy in 10k gtd is a nice tournament)- maybe i shouldnt say that maybe it's gone tomorrow...

the ONLY game/ tournamnet i played in THE LAST WEEKS was the 100k gtd 11 buy in yesterday....

over the day i absolut dont like it! in the evening i would have a few Options...but thats mostly to late for me...sundays obv better-but not much..so i think im done with online poker or what...

LOL, it actually strangely made sense to me
Withdrawals can only be reversed in full, I'm not 100% sure why however this is the only option
For further account issues regarding deposits/withdrawals, the customer service team are by far best placed to advise

Thanks

I disagree strongly "no one wants to play the first level with 100k" - many, many players have commented on the new structures and appreciate the changes

Late reg was decreased lately and is an area we will continue to monitor and review

"Every MTT should have the buyin in the first part of the name in the lobby so that it gets listed in the first part of the window title bar instead of at the very end. I just checked and even with a 1200 pixel window width the buyin of some games still isn't viewable. I have no problem quickly knowing the buyin of the game I am playing when I am playing the Big 215 or Sunday 500 on Stars, I shouldn't have this issue on Party"

Strongly agree and will raise with the team for consideration/review - hopefully, we can get some improvements in place for the next release

With regards to Mix Max - currently, this format is very popular with our players Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and as I stated previously, yes we need to find the right balance with these and other formats in the regular schedule - work in progress

"8 max games should have 9 handed FTs and 6 max games should have 7 handed FTs, especially for games which aren't no limit." - this is already under review and the team are working on it


Thanks

Colette
So this is where you are getting "players feedback" for constant last minute changes on scheduled MTTS, blind structure, type, GTD, etc etc??

- We see the series that are being released a couple of weeks earlier. I can show our players and say does this look attractive, what would you maybe change, etc etc
while i dont see any problems with benefits as above that are given to stables(even bigger % of rakeback)... i do see big problem when bunch of players decide ("give feedback") what they think is "best" and that is in the client without any upfront notice/announcement to other players (or asked feedback from)

Colette could you please explain why this is? Can you see why one of the biggest sites that do not run $22s might look ridiculous?

So true, in other threads there is a back and forth discussion about what changes should be made and why, here we just see some random change in the lobby, i can't remember requests for mix max yet the lobby is full of it.

The schedule is miles behind other sites, its crazy.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

I just find it amazing that I can play games between $5-25 across 10 sites and the second biggest in the world is the one where I have put in the second least volume this month. The game selection is so stale, the games are tougher than almost anywhere else, the $11fo flagship today took 4 1/2 hours to get itm and the 2x re-entries have slipped back in. Oh and there are practically no $22 games. Reading and posting in this thread is a true Groundhog Day experience.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

hey,
i personally like the deep structures, but please don't call any of these tournaments fast/turbo because it is very misleading

some creativity in naming the tournaments wouldnt hurt either

also, i dont really see the point of having color labels but not showing them in the lobby, but i guess you dont want ppl to see that all the mtts are regfests before regging, so that might make sense

if you get PartyCaption you can have labels seen in the lobby, but that's third party software.

Guess sadly stables have the final word...main reason their sats are only designed to feed 109 and 215 events.

The big things with BRS will explode soon (i know 3 guys ex BRS that have graphs and documents to back up in case they deny)

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

the thing is, this thread is a waste of time, who are we giving our feedback too? Colette does not deal with the schedule. If other people within the team are reading this thread then i really wonder why they are not doing anything about the complaints which are almost daily.

The fact there are so little options to play on the site is shocking, if i want to play peak time, there are only 3-4 tournaments on offer, and this is over the whole night lol. For the second biggest site, this is unacceptable. Please understand there is just so very little options for us on the site.

Colette if you do not actually deal with the schedule then why are you the rep on this thread? I'm not having a go, you are very responsive, but i'm just saying it like it is, i think it should be someone who literally makes the changes to the schedule.

Noted
Further improvements regarding the note function are planned in future release updates - the ability to show notes in the lobby is on the to do list

I collate the feedback from all sources - 2+2, other poker forums, feedback from the players via email/CS/social media/live events and our community group forums
This is shared regularly with the poker team management for review and consideration
I also work with the tech teams to share issues and feedback
No, I do not personally deal with the schedule, however, I work alongside the team who do
I have managed player feedback for many years in the same manner including posting as party rep to ensure feedback is noted and reviewed
Why am I the rep? - because of all the above
Your opinion is noted, however, this is unlikely to change in the near future
If you feel I am failing to share your feedback you are of course welcome to share via email

Thanks

Lots of ex-BRS players coming out of the woodwork to corroborate the accusations, and new accusations against plenopads/bitb.

I'm quite certain that Tom Waters, Mike Sexton, Rob Yong, John Duthie etc are aware of the thread. Can you confirm that *someone* will publicly address this? Don't even need to know when, just that it won't be swept under a rug like all the previous times it was brought up.

no, i do not think you are failing to share feedback at all. My issue is the feedback that you do share from this thread is so rarely used. I also believe it would be better to converse with a sole individual who makes changes to a schedule. Look at the MPN thread, that is how it should be done. The rep is literally looking for suggestions, making the changes and explaining why, none of that happens in this case.

I think party would be a lot better if some of the suggestions on here were taken. If you gain feedback from the other sources, great, but the changes on party do not seem to come from here, it is why i question the purpose of this thread.

on top of all this, the game offerings are just so poor, but you do not deal with the schedule, so it is quite strange to tell you about the offerings. We are giving you feedback, it is not used, what do you want from us?

Maybe you can explain some other things,

why are there no $22s at peak time?
why are only a few tournaments spread over many hours which leaves so little for us to play?
why are tournaments repeated so often?

The whole structure of this schedule you have is way below standard, you need someone to rip it up and start over.

I have answered concerns previously some time ago regarding the same accusations and believe my comments are likely posted in the thread

I have addressed these claims regarding stable deals previously

There are no deals with partypoker with any stable regarding " HR/SHR freerolls "
Any offer or enhanced rake promotion is between the stable and their players directly

I would suggest those who suggest otherwise, contact the stable owner directly
I believe BRS themselves have commented on the same claims, some months ago, on this thread or likely the previous thread as Patrick started this new thread
Nothing has changed and I have no further information or feedback to offer

Kind regards,

Colette
I searched the thread and this is all I could find unless someone can point me to the earlier posts alluded to

how can BRS maintain a fund and be able to directly transfer the PPL$ of their players? this option is unavailable for everybody else. This isn't between the stable and their players. Somebody higher had to give access....


also why bother contacting the stable owner directly, they've gone completely MIA. after skimming through 82 pages of the UK LLCP it also seems Party is liable for the 3rd parties they collaborate with. so I think it is more than fair players take up the issue with them in hopes of resolution.
