Poker Stars support should stop kicking so much ass. https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/28...rstars-411086/

Supernova and Supernova Elite players will be able to retain their status
the following year until end of September provided they meet the current
play requirements. This will start now for the 2008 SN and SNEs.

Milestone bonuses will become cash credits. This means once a player hits
200,000 VPPs for 2009 he will be able to obtain a $2,000 cash credit for
50,000 FPPs, without a need to earn further 10,000 VPPs. That is not fully
automated yet, but we plan to enable players to buy these bonuses directly
from the VIP Store, so there won't be a need to wait for processing of the
bonuses as we have it now.

The $50,000 VIP weekly event will become a $75,000 event with 12 minute
blinds.

The $20,000 VIP weekly event will become a $30,000 weekly event.

Concierge will change slightly. Changes include a player may only use the
service once a month with a max of three receipts. We will have clear
rules for what may be submitted on the website by end of February.

All of the above changes will take place starting March 1st, 2009. Not
promising, but we may introduce further changes later in the year. Keep the
ideas coming.

No, when you get 200k vpps on the year you can buy the 2k bonus with 50k fpps.

It really doesn't effect the lower stakes imo. No way I'm getting 200k+vpps in a year at this pace lol.

I guess I'm more happy about the fact I'll be hitting Platinum next month and getting the same benefits with less hands.

I'm not going to claim that I have all of my math right or that I am an expert on Stars VIP, but from what I calculated if you hit supernova and on your way you hit platinum in the first month of the year, your monthly value of fpps earned $323 on average. This is also just the fpps, no other added value from freerolls which I very rarely play. At 50nl I have earned .26 vpp/hand, so to reach Platinum in my first month I would need ~38k hands (10000/.26=~38k). I was messing with the filter in HEM and figured out that over my last 37950 hands at 50nl (all on stars) I have generated $1936.89 in rake. If anyone else has their last 35-40k hands handy, see if this figure seems about right. So at that rate I would be getting on an average of (323/1936.85)x100= 16.68%rb at 50nl.

I would like to note that this doesn't take into account moving up, moving down, changes in your game that affect vpp rate either, etc. but the way I see it is way >> to get rb @ 50 than to play on Stars. Of course I only have rb on AP and the massive software tilt I go through just isn't worth it.
