Petition: Intermediary buy-in levels for 45 man

Hey guys,

Considering that PokerStars Steve is willing to listen to our complaints and requests (https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...postcount=1793),
I've decided to make this thread in order to express our disagreements regarding
the current buy-in levels for 45 man turbos and ask intermediary buy-in levels.

Please post here if your in favor of adding intermediary buy-in levels and structure
propositions.Thank you.

Re: Petition: Intermediary buy-in levels for 45 man

You should be more specific on what you are petitioning (i.e. the buyin levels). There are two groups complaining about the new buyin levels. Group 1 wants a buyin between the $3.50 and $10 and Group 2 wants one between $10 and $30.

Personally (although I do not fall under group 2 because I don't play that big), I would support both groups so that players can properly move up rather than being stuck at the $3.50s til they are rolled for the $10s.

+1 to a buyin between 10 and 30.

+100 to making them the same as the 180's - $3.50 / $8 / $15 / $35

Re: Petition: Intermediary buy-in levels for 45 man

Steve told me he wouldn't expect any changes in the next month, so I'm not sure how willing they are to change anything. I'm sure he's seen the complaints in the other threads.

Anyway, my preference for micro/low stakes buy-ins is $0.50, $1.50, $3.50, $7.50, $15. I'd prefer $7.50 because it makes the jumps logical but $7 or $8 works too. Between $7 and $8, I'd choose $8.

Re: Petition: Intermediary buy-in levels for 45 man

Here is something I posted in the giant sit-n-go changes thread:

After BF1, before BF2, 6.5/45, 12/45, and 27/45 were loading very well. Now, traffic in the $30/45 is scarce. I think a 3.5-8-15-30 setup will help a lot in bringing back the traffic.

Steve, please can you compare the turbo 45man traffic before and after the recent changes? I've been monitoring the 45man traffic since BF because this is my main game and I fully intend to play lots of them again once I relocate.

My impression is that traffic prior to the changes was not a problem at all and they loaded very fast - fast enough for someone to play >30 mid stake games continuously. Now, there are only two choices for mid stake, $10 and $30. Based on my observation of the traffic in past 2-3 days, such a player will not be able to maintain 30 running games for as long as before.

It does seems to me that traffic in turbo 45man has been negatively affected by the recent structure changes.

Re: Petition: Intermediary buy-in levels for 45 man

Last thing I read in that other thread(few days ago) was Pokerstars Steve saying 45 mans were now finally confirmed as 7, 15, 30 and I thought that's great no need to read this thread anymore.

So I get online last night and lo and behold there's 10's 30,s and nothing in between.........so I don't know what happened there.

As far as I'm concerned I don't care if it's 7,15,30 or 10,20,30 but just get that middle one in there whatever it is

Non-HU MTT Sit&Gos with between 12 and 40 entrants have now been redeployed with new buy-ins and rake. The buy-in levels are:

$1.50
$3.50
$7.00
$15.00
$30.00
$60.00
$100.00
$200.00

Most if not all STTs are planned to be updated tomorrow morning with round buy-ins and, in some cases, altered rake %s.

Heads-up, Fifty50s, and Hyper-Turbos will not see any rake changes, just buy-in changes to match the new round buy-in amounts. These tournaments may not be deployed until later this week.

Satellites are still not going to be affected at all in this week's changes
ok..just noticed it's not for 45's......so why can't we just have this for 45's then?

3.5, 7, 15, 30

to mirror 18-mans

The 60s barely ever ran, don't really see a need for them
