PostSubject: WHY HAVE THE PAYOUTS CHANGED   Sun Aug 30, 2015 7:13 pm

THE CANCER & REMEMBRANCE GAMES WERE SET UP BY DONATIONS FROM THE PLAYERS/SITE...

I AM HOPING THOSE GAMES CAN BE CHANGED BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PAYOUTS LIKE THEY HAD BEEN SINCE THEY WERE IMPLEMENTED...

DOES ANYONE THAT DONATED WANT TO SEE THE PAYOUTS BACK TO WHERE THEY WERE FROM THE START?????????

I havent played one  in a bit  but  the payouts  should not have been changed if they were. The  chips for those games  came  from donations  from the membership  not fatcat.

I am not  sure of the amounts   but   i believe there  were enough donated  to carry the games  as they were  for  a year  give or take.

 Since the members  donated  to have those  games any changes  to them should  also be  decided  by the members....seems  only fair.

Why have all the games  been changed  recently?? Seems too much  unnecessary  tinkering  from  not  starting games  till 10 players  are registered,   to the payouts in normal games ,and  now if  true   to the payouts in games   run by fatcat  but funded by the members  not fatcat....


 If there is a reason   for all these  changes  someone  should post what it is, that would keep  all the posts  regarding  the  changes in games     to a minimum , and  stop the   bellyaching on the tables  over  all of this.  Outside of  mufasa   i   would not  even know  who  to ask or  turn  to   at this moment....we all know that DB  does not  ever   ( or  extremely rarely   ) post.

  It does  say fatcat where the members  run the show.....  we all know that is not  100%  correct    but the members  do deserve  to be   notified   if and  why changes are occurring.

it seems to me recently the amount of players is down, now that could well be people on summer vacation.....or it could be people upset with the changes,,,,, but i would hate to see any more leave over something like this...

I agree when changes are made like this explain why they are being made.

The games also should start when they are supposed to regardless of how many are signed up-waiting for up to 4 hours for a game to start is crazy.

The payouts should stay the way they where & not be dropped down to 5 for most regular games & down to 10 for most big games.

I remember that they tried dropping it down to either top 3 or top 5 once before & very few liked it, in a matter of fact a lot of people stopped playing all together. It was short lived & they went back to the regular payouts of top 10 for regular games & top 15 for big games.

We have lost a lot of good people in the last 8 months for one reason or another, DO WE WANT MORE TO LEAVE BECAUSE OF PAYOUTS FOR PLACEMENTS IN TOURNEYS.

I hope this gets corrected back to the way it used to be. I know also a lot of people are complaining about it at the tables & I hope they post here to voice their opinion on it.

I made the changes because of complaints that it takes an hr or 2 sometimes 3 to gain 10 players or 15 so i made the change to 5 with payouts to 5 places because of this change it reflected all games for those and i cannot just make the early am games start with 5 and the mid day games stay at 10 and so on so with this i will take into consideration on reverting back or leave as is.

Thanks for responding.

I know you are busy & trying to make some people happy but the way it is now I think a lot of people are unhappy.

Hope you decide to put it back to the way it was in previous years which is tourneys start on time & payouts to top 10 for regular games & top 15 for big games.

I agree the ones that have been donated, such as cancer games, should be the same

I have seen the past weeks games and im seeing several games where they have 9 players playing 23 for big games and for the special games 35 now the numbers used to be higher than this back in december last year through march and the numbers fell since then not saying its because of summer or anything else its just we do not have the players like we had and till the numbers get higher in the registration of the games im forced to adjust as needed to keep the games playing without 1 to 2 hrs wait for a game to start

TY Mufasa for responding., I agree with all who have posted so far to reverting back the way it was. I have seen some old faces here lately and hope they stay. I believe reverting back will surely help. Given time I hope we can bring back a lot of the people that have lost in the last eight months.

Thank's Mufasa,

SNAFU...... Cheers!

in the less attended games i think top five places paid is more than fair.
expecting a game to start with less than 10 players AND get paid up to 10th place is plain stupid.
i can't comment on the cancer games as i won't play in them.

Why you don't want to participate in cancer games is your loss..

Take care m8

whatever what everyone wants,but defintely not in favour of top 10 getting paid as 90% of the time the 10 players dont play and squatters exist in most games,i would say in 100% of the games..some are happy just making 500 chips for 'appearance' which is not how the game should be played.One should be paid on the merit of play not because one can make the table time by simply being there and signing in and not even play one hand thru the tourney but gain chips.By paying top 5 you are avoiding this situation and donkey play as well.
one can see the quality of play when top 5 is to be paid its a totally different ball game of poker.
players are signing in for 4/5 games in a row even now and not even playing them.
The problem is the a.m games and we go back to the earlier system we are rewarding players with chips for just being awake in the night.The whole idea was avoid these players from being rewarded for no effort.for years they made millions of chips so i guess its tough to work your way to top 5 by actually having to play the game..but isnt thats the way its suppose to be?
i would ask Mufasa to take a call on this and decide based on above and others posts.

I made a decision, it is what it is and I do my best to be in top 5.
I'm not happy that some ppl ruin ething for e`1 and its happening more often.
I just miss the OLD FATCAT and the way it ran. Consistency and changes were
taken into consideration and voted on by the TLU.  What happen to that???
Anywaz, Let's play and try enjoy ourselves...No more CONGRATS for finals if
you don't even win nothing 6th to 10th place.  : (

Roy, It's Your choice  NOT to play in Cancer Games, WE DO play in them
and WE, the ppl donated for that game.  We had agreement on those games in the beginning.
These days to be honest, you have changed into a "YES MAN"  
That costume don't look so good on you, In My opinion is go back to being OL'ROY !!

As far as sitters, that aint OUR faults, WE ALL shouldn't take punishment for sitters.
Sometimes, sitting ain't even a choice, things happen, I  be reading someplace and lose
track of time as others do.  BUT, some actually do for the chip value, NOT ME!!!  Take account of those repeated offenders  and subtract from round chips.

Final table has always been the payout places...A vote was made and approved and i might add while you were running the show...
Final table payouts is the way the pros do it..The way it's being done here was and has been voted on..

Old owner did make sure that sitters got booted go back and look at your own posts..Also the ppl that sat and didn't play were stopped or faced suspension or ban..
I went along with that and if i couldn't play i would unregister...

This isn't rocket science..Just a free poker site...Free chips anyway you want to play it's still free site free chips..

I remember back in the day when i was a staff member here, we would go to tables and ask sitters 2 take their seats on 3rd try they were booted from the table....so why cant this come bk?

some good points here, what did happen 2 tlc and the votes?
We all sat out 1 time or another including myself, falling asleep waiting for games 2 start or whatever, but u know ur regular sitters, so boot them I say. and bring bk old payouts, ty

i agree with you gf, keep it up and more peep will start leaving
only cause someone wants to change it their ways.
might be why the poker site po went under..
