Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread****

Party guys why you are keep making one step forward and two steps backwards??
Why make flipfest all the 5$ tours??6 min levels,then 6 8min levels and then 10min levels.
REALLY??
There are 2 categories of players
-the players who have time,like to play POKER,don't have problem to play a tour 8-9 hours.10-12 min level for them.
-the players who don't have much free time,have jobs,family etc,get bored easy,want to finish fast.3-6min level for them or stg or stg hero.
Is it sooooooo difficult to have everyone happy??
Is it sooooooo difficult to a have good schedule wiyh hypers,turbos,normals,deepstacks in all buy in levels??
Also every time i open the client i see something different.LR,guarantees,levels,miniute levels,types..........
Also nobody would complain about PKO's if you didn't change the freezeouts.If you and recs like PKO's put as many as you want as long as you don't reduce freezeouts for the rest.
Also this priority list.....why i have a feeling that it is excactly the same like the before/after monster series list and nothing happened since then...

Can you confirm that in the deposit ticket draw :
1. There is no limit to the number of entries gained via deposit or tickets that can be won
2. i can deposit £750 = $1019 and still be eligible for the 'high draw'
3. no deposit code is required.

And for the Satty promo , can you confirm that excess tickets won to main events will be refunded in the form of T$ as long as the target event is played?

Good work swapping the 18:00 slot away from PKO. Perhaps add 2 more levels early on so it's reggable at 20:00 when a lot of players will start their sessions? I very much like that the late reg was significantly reduced from the 3.5-4hr trainwreck it was before, but having it open for about 1h40 is too close not to do another 15mins and make it into the break for a clean 2 hours of latereg.

The structures also seem good to me, but perhaps ever so slightly on the fast side for the lower buyins and too fast for the micro buyins? It's not pokerstars yet where the daily fields draw 4000 players.
Pretty sure your in the minority about the structures. Yes its good late reg was cut but mtts are turbo flip fests at the moment.

This summarizes my feelings perfectly about everything Party ever does. You get some good news on a regular basis, but it's always followed by something ridiculously dumb that more than counterfeits the previous good news.

They can't pretend everyone prefers a 6 min level flipfest. Saw a couple of the afternoon Europes overlay as the novelty of the rebrand wears off and folk wanna get back to worthwhile poker.

Yes duplicate ticket will be exchanged post series as long as the target event has been played as per the previous series

1. Each deposit made qualifies for a prize draw entry
2. The HIgh Draw is $1000 or more
3. No code, however, to qualify for the deposit draw players are required to have earned 1 cashback point during the promotional period.

All details are on the promotional page >

Is there table update coming or no?? if yes when??


(And btw party previous update dind change anything except that it clear satellites from reg mtts just lol)

We need:
-biiger table fonds
-frame player notes
-buy in filter
-hotkeys

...
-also option to have different felt colour for different mtt type will be nice
- right click search player
Etc

Ans then focus on mtt schedule and see what is working/what not and what are kind of mtts has more demand for

This stuff are most important stuff you need to do in order to grow as online site and be serious competition to stars imo
Me and a lot of other posters are telling you this for at least a year and you are not doing anything about it

I really want to support party and put more volume there but current software is really tilting for me taking too much focus etc ( even with party caption) so i just play max 1-2mtt when i grind in week days and like 5-6 mtt sunday while i play like min 40+ on stars daily (i play mid/hi stakes mtts so thats like minimum 250$ rake you are missing just from me in weekdays, i think there are a lot of players that feel like mee and play similar volume )

P.S. at the end of the day i do vote with my wallet and i am just posting this as support/advice for party and obv my game/site choice/selection is based on what i feel is best for me so...

It is interesting that you are running 1k, 2k, 5k freerolls with 10 minute levels and there are 5000+ players in each of them. Do you think that your recs want to spend probably 7-8 hours on such kind of freerolls?

Great point. If any games were worthy of the super popular faster structures it were these.

Decision making at Party is off-the-cuff.

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread****

+: PLO, PLO8 mtts, especially the latter. I play virtually all of these, I like how often they run, how some are turbos, etc. Good stuff.

-: Literally every NL daily MTT, they are all horrendous and I don't know how you can possibly think offering a schedule of only retardoKO turbos could be GTO. I literally reg 0 NL MTTs on Party, every other site has a better offering.

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread****

As most comments are about the same two things (schedule/software) wont quote every post and just give more of an update:


Software:

Same as I said last time, the team is working hard, more and more resources are put onto it, I don't want to give definitive date again, but each day we move closer to a better product. If there is one person in the world who wants amazing software, believe me, its me

As always, I will tip my hat to partycaption, an amazing tool that makes software look fantastic, bigger fonts, themes etc, recommend it if nobody is using it and plays medium/high stakes on the site.

Schedule:

I have been working on this the last 3/4 days and think we are close to a very nice peak schedule that has a better grasp on PKOs, has a lot more variation throughout the week and would be a really fun schedule for a lot of people to play.

This is not the final product, but something like:

UK times:

4pm - Daily Special (Early edition) (different price points and game types)
5pm- New branded bounty ($215?)
6pm- New branded bounty ($109?)
7pm - Daily Special (Main event) (different price points and game types)
7pm/730 - Daily $530 highroller thats always ran
8pm - Rebranded uppercut $109 with same guarantee
9pm - Daily big turbo
10pm - Daily Special (late edition)
11pm - New branded bounty turbo

Daily specials (first draft!)

Monday - ?? Need suggestions
Tuesday - Supersized, $1k main event
Wednesday - 6max
Thursday - Supersized Knockout
Friday - Fast
Saturday - Slow
Sunday - Special

Wednesday 6max makes sense because of offerings on other sites
Saturday Slow makes sense because people can play later sessions (no work next day)

Sunday schedule looking something like:

4pm- Sunday warm up / Kick off etc special
5pn - $215 bounty
6pm - $109 bounty
7pm - Title Fight (rebrand?)
7pm7:30 - Sunday High roller ($530)
8pm - Sunday Super High Roller ($2600)
8pm - Main Event (rebrand?)
9pm - Sunday Speed/Turbo
10pm Sunday Second chance special
11pm - Bounty Hunter turbo


Buy ins would have minis and micros. This way 2 pskos early will be supported by a special event starting before it that should encourage people to get onto the site earlier, at 7pm we would have a big daily special and then followed up by the big daily $109 and then closely followed by late edition of the special with some turbos added around it.

What is peoples first thoughts on this? To me I think its very balanced, has good variety, isn't too PSKO invested and you can see with the specials I went with 1/7 PSKO vs 3/7 PSKO vs competition.

While it's nice to see you have acknowledged the need to add 6-max games, please for the love of god don't Have your only 6-max games running on Wednesday and none every other day of the week.

Re: ****Official PartyPoker/Bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread****

Pads one thing about schedule ( i dont really want to comment on this while software sucks but will just give this feedback)

Do you realize that people complaining about pkos complain about this two things

- all early starting mtts are pkos => no one that starts their sesion later that starting tome of those early pkos really want to very late reg pko,
and because of this
- all early starting mtts that are pkos have smaler fields => no one wants to play small field pko

But yet you are forsing pkos in early slots

X x x

And about software particaption is nuts of course but what really boders me ( and i am prety dure others too) is how hard is to integrate those things that party caption is dooing into sortware???
i imagine that partycaption is one couple of guys with "standard" pc and limited money resurses, how team of party software programers with "unlimited" money resurse cant make something for a year +??? We are not looking for a new adge software better then stars we are looking for stars 2014, fultilt software, PKR ( without 3d thing) type of client how hard is to do that??

Dont get me wrong i am prety sure u want party to have better software then i want but i mean this constant coments about software "team workimg hard..." "we are investing resurses..." etc etc are really annoying and insulting intelligence of people that are giving feedback about software in the thread

Next time try this "blufging line" is more credibly:
"About software we have almost final product we need only couple of fine tuning things to do but we are waiting for approval from gaming commission so we can implement that and put update software version for download"

Or just say the true
" we have no team working on updates
Or
our team is incompetent but cant fire them because we have agrremend for x period
Or
we fired our previous incompentemt team and now we are building new team that we belive will work fast and we will have final great product very very fast(semibluff line)"

Exactly.... can somebody explain this ridiculous restriction? It's complete nonsense. You literally forcing micro/lowstakes players to play highstakes tournaments where you can take their money instead of allow them to play lowstakes 22$.

At least let them decide for themselves whether they want to play 22$ freezout or another step into HS
