We all like these games, but now with the chat box being so big you can not play other games so you have to turn of the chat. A forum game with out chat is just like any game on the site, so there will be just us grinding away which will be very boring.
Does anyone like this new version? For me it is bad as now i have to have the chat switched off. I am sure this will affect more than just me and will make players play elsewhere.

Like I said in the  other thread only been playing what freerolls I can get in as cashed out and won't be putting any monies back on here until they sort out the chat box and the mis-click betting. Only got to see how the freerolls arn't even filling up as normal.
WHY ARE 888 unable to sort out their server issuses.
or are there other gremlins at work?

Totally agree with Slim and Shiny, this latest version is absolutely apalling, almost impossible to play more than 1 table at a time and keep any sort of check on what is happening in the game. Who in the World designed this? And why? Im thinking someone of about 5 years old who works for Poker Stars!


It really is the worst version yet.

I play in a small local poker club near where i live and we have weekly games and on average we get about 40 players per tournament, it is more of a fun game and a chance to catch up and talk poker. Out of them 40 players about 30 play on a regular basis on 888 since the update most have moved on and are not going to play untill this version has changed.
Now this is only a small group of players that were playing daily so thats 30 players dropped down to 3 or 4 that are playing on other sites this is quite a high number.
Now if i was running 888 i would ask myself a question, do i want to please the grinders who do not use chat or keep it as it was where vast numbers of people play on the side as a hobby and a game to relax after work and enjoy using the chat box.
I  must admit i hardly use the chat box, but in forum games i use it all the time as its good to catch up with fellow forum players on how they are etc.
I can see the owners of Stars and Party rubbing there hands together, as they just gained loads of more active and new players especially with 1 site on lock down at the mo and this new version being crap.
Now im not 1 to moan but when i get fellow players asking me whats going on at 888 and why was the update done that made game play worse, i thought id make this thread.
There must be thousands of small poker clubs, pubs and groups around the country thinking the same. Hopefully someone on 888 reads this and listens to us customers.

i do recall the beta thread for this version and there were quite a few comments regarding the chat box, it's size and how there was now no focus on chat setting rather than focus on betting. i guess no one from 888 bothered to follow up on the thread and read the comments.

come on 888, surley you make an adjustable chat box, large for those that want it and small like it was for those that don't and for crying out loud give us the option of focus on chat option and not focus on betting.
a pair of melons beats anything

Lol I cannot believe this has not been resolved yet.  Surely all they have to do is rollback the software.  I have not seen one positive comment about this new layout so how on earth did management approve this update.  I mentioned (tongue in cheek) in other thread about 888 being infiltrated by a stars employee.  888s ignorance towards us is close to making me believe there might be something in it lol.



First they turn freerolls into a crapshoot and then they change the one thing fundamental to their success.  None of it makes sense and even after traffic dropping still no response. 


And still they spend millions every year on marketing.  Give me that money 888 and at least Ill get a return for it because it doesnt matter how you market this it wont work.  I like others now play less and soon wont play at all so come on get it done.
