hello there.

i apologize for my bad eng in advance :P

i cant see why u complaint about the new freeroll system and the pi benefits.

my experience with the benefits from the past weeks is that are great and work out good for me.

its to easy to earn 100 nibs, i ve done it twice in the last week 1st time in 10s husng with took me 2 days of not so much volume and the 2nd was in the 1 and 2 dollars husng witch took me 3 days to colect +100 nibs and the good think is that after i collected the nibs i gone broke twice due to monkey tilting and taking chances to rush in the higher stakes. anyhow i ship the last silver freeroll for a nice 400 dollars; ~35-40 players witch means that the ticket worth 35 bucks witch means that with the payback and the ticket u get 100% rakeback!!!!! and the players are playing BAD in these tourneys.

anyway i lost the 400 in the next day trying to catch up with the varience in the 100s husng but made 83nibs for like 3 hours of play.

also i got one email that my team(im the only member :P) got in the leaderboard for the teams freeroll. and all of these without puting much effort in it and all that from small deposits.

 

what im trying to say is that now that i checked the pi benefits a litle more deep that i used to i m stunted. i play in the full tilt (without the damn rakeback) and i knew that i lose value because i dont have rakeback bad the games were good in mid husng. as i calculate the payback if i played full time in betmost i see that only from the low payback deal i have(16c per nib) in the month i will get at least 320$ extra just from the payback! it realy boost your roi and if i count the tokens worth its insane that i still play elsewhere.even a break even player in the low sngs can make a some money just from benefits.

 

anyway by the early september i will have move my bankroll in the betmost and put some real volume to see how it will go.i aim for the high vip levels to see what the benefits are up there from pi and from betmost(i look the other day and they say they give weekly money in your account in the higher vip levels and with the payback i think i will get a ton of extra value insted of a no rakeback account).

 

gj PI keep up the good work u won me.

 

 

PS:and 2 things that i see that would do good in the freerolls is that it has to change the blind levels and starting stacks, like that its like 2xturbo and that the registration sould start 1 hour 30 min before the tourney start because it has tons of sit outs.

my regards and keep it :D

Thanks for the feedback.

Regarding tokens they will be issued shortly as for the conversion its being discussed and we should have it sorted out.

These are just suggestions I am throwing out there I would love to hear your opinions on the subject but from the sound of your last few posts no matter what we do there will always be something to argue about.'   Any news on this?

The tournaments are set on Sunday cause it suits the majority of players. As Saturday is usually a day in which they go out downtown or to the movies and such. We don't want to split it into two days as that would require them to alter plans for two days or night. Thus, for simplicity purposes we made them all on one night and the night that most people are relaxing and winding down for the next week. So it allows them to enjoy the freerolls Good luck at the tables!

Has anyone suggested that it would be a good idea to increase the number of payouts? I find it kind of fustrating that I have made the final table and finished in 6th place to receive nothing. Can this get done or what would it take for this to get done if it is even a possibility. I suggest that making the final table is at least worth something. What do you guys think about that.

Hey Steel, This was already bought to our attention and something we've already got the ball rolling on. It should be in place for next weekends tournaments where the final table is all paid. Good luck at the tables!

So it allows them to enjoy the freerolls Good luck at the tables!   How do you know what fits the majority? I've never seen a poll about this, and never been asked. You don't know that at all. Had you followed the talk here, you would have read my suggestion on playing the 3 low tours on Saturday, and the 3 big tours on Sunday, and then the following week the other way around. That way everyone is pleased. They can play what day they like, and they don't have to play up to 6 tours at a time, which means a lot of sitouts in the smaller tours. That would be the best solution, and would fit everyone. If the tokens last 4 weeks, they'll not expire before they have the chance to play them. For those who prefer to play sundays, it means they can play the 3 small tours one Sunday, and then the 3 big tours the following Sunday, and then also have room for other tours elsewhere, cause believe it or not, there are other pokersites out their than BetMost :) It can't really be any better than that. I simply have come to the conclusion that you guys don't care about your smaller members at all, and it's your way or no way. I've suggested a perfect solution that no one can have anything against, and that is easy to bring to life, but still you guys stay stubborn. For someone that have to get up at 5 in the morning, it's simply not possible to play those tours at that time, and I'm sure others have the same problem. And a final note, actually the idea came from PI Simon, and I worked on it. So, do you guys throw out ideas just to kidd around with your members? You might not care at all if I leave PI and BetMost, but it will go that way if this goes on like this.

But note i can see your point regarding it suiting many others Mich.

Hey MichFran, We actually do take suggestions into account and we did ask several members if they wanted it based on two days instead of one. The majority of them said no. It was easier for them to do it all in one day but wanted the one hour difference so not all 6 were running at the same time. Thus, why we had it set-up this way. People didn't want to have to take off two days from their personal life on weekends. As they have to spend time with family, do things around the house, go out for the night, etc.. Thus, we took all this into consideration and set it up the way we did. We also took into consideration how members wanted all the people on the final tables paid. This is currently in motion and should hopefully be in place for next weeks tournaments. This was actually something our smaller guys wanted and it was something we thought would be better for them and the tournaments. I'm not sure how you can say we're against small players when we've gone out of our way to help small players with several things. -Nibs counting to two decimal points instead of having to earn a full nib each day. -being able to transfer tokens to higher value ones which only took a couple nibs to earn and turn them into others based on the valuation. -got Poker Payback pushed back to min $1 instead of higher by talking BetMost Poker down.   I'm not sure how else we could really help small players and how they're not getting great rewards currently. If you have suggestions or anything please email our support as we'd love to hear them.

If a community like this asks something like this 'THEY ASK ALL THEIR MEMBERS'. Unbelivable. You don't get the point in my idea. They don't have to take out 2 nights. If they prefer to play Sundays, they play the small tours one week, and the big tours next week's Sunday. If they only like to play the big tours, they play them saturday one week, and sunday next week. They don't need to use both saturday, and sunday as you say. The big players don't play the small ones anyway, as they play other bigger/better tours elsewhere. But forget it. This will be my last posting in this forum. I'll use my last Emerald token soon, and only play Cash/S'n'G to support my Fantasy Team, and play the Fantasy Tours. I'm not interested in being active in a forum of a community, that only asks a little number of their members on important issues. This is a joke. So, you got what you wanted. You got rid of me, cause this I'm not willing to accept. Everyone voice should matter in a community like this. Sad, really.

Hey,   Sorry you feel that way and we could send out a blast to see if people wanted it. We would do so if we had enough members emailing about this change or talking about it in the forums. So far as to my knowledge you're the only one that has requested it to be changed to a two day system. All the players I've been in contact with like it all being on one day that way they don't have to worry about booking two days off and Sunday is a day that a majority of players have a relaxing day in which they can play them. As I mentioned before you can email me with ideas and suggestions you have...but realize that we have thousands of members that we need to do what a majority of the players prefer. If this isn't satisfactory for you I'm sorry, but we do our best to satisfy all members.
