Hey guys

After talking to many Uk players during the tournament (facebook UK freeroll january) and also forum members, we have a come to a descision that something needs to be said about the competition. Now, all countrys have there own freerolls, and we, as british players, accept that.... so why is it then that when we have a UK freeroll do we get hounded for passwords and eventually get overcome by eastern europeans and other countrys joining the tournement. For example, in todays tournement, i finished seventh, and guess what???? 5 out of the 6 players remmaining, weren't from the U.K.!!! Please correct me if im wrong but doesnt this all seem a bit unfair? I mean, is it called "FACEBOOK FREEROLL UK" for a reason??? And why say " A FREEROLL FOR OUR UK FANS" if thats not the case......?

Please comment and try to get our point across :)

Agreed, should only be for UK players if it's called UK Facebook Freeroll. Most annoying thing is people begging for the password every 2 seconds. Very distracting early on.

Heya
Up until now we allowed players to share the password with their friends, despite the fact that the password was released only to players from the UK.

In light of the feedback we've received both on My.888 and FB, we'll post a poll on our UK Facebook page and let the players decide what kind of restrictions they'd like to see on these tournaments.

Run Good

Thanks a lot guys, im all up for playing people from other countries as im sure many others are but its just the principle of a UK freeroll that i think is bothering most and myself of course. Thanks for the quick response and look forward to playing many more games in the future :)

I think you will find that the problem has been the fact that anyone can view the passwords on Facebook without joining the event.

Personally I think it would be nice to have a freeroll restricted to UK ip's.

I also think it would be nice to have one for other parts of the world too. Smile
