Hi guys,

I was writing a reply to a post i made about 5 months ago but it turned into a longer reply than expected, but not long enough for a blogpost... conclusion: new topic.

So i requested 888 would add progressive KO tournaments, as they are a great addition to tournament poker and i believe they'll stick around for a long time.
But we're 5 Months later and nothing has changed.
Let me ramble on a bit about what i think is going on Smile AND CAPITALIZE (Wink) ON WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN:

I think adding these is a slamdunk easy snapcall. 
So my educated guess is that the software team is having troubles implementing it into the client again. Like they have been so many times, on even the simplest things. (auto-rebuy/addon, dividing pricepools, making deals etc.)

And that's a shame cause i think they're really missing out, again..but now more than ever!

COME ON GUYS, POKERSTARS IS LOSING STATUS EVERYDAY, THIS IS THE TIME TO STEP UP YOUR GAME!
GET YOUR POKER CLIENT TOGETHER!!
FREEROLLS ARE A GREAT LONGTERM INVESTMENT (I absolutely hate them, but i understand the value they bring) BUT BRINGIN YOUR SOFTWARE TO A HIGHER LEVEL MIGHT BE JUST AS GREAT OF A LONGTERM INVESTMENT.

First place is in sight guys..are you gonna be scared money trying to ladder to the next payjump just to secure that 3rd place money while losing your chance of winning 1st place in the process, or are you gonna go all-in and play for 1st place?

I SAY LET'S FKIN GOOOOOO!!

Happy new year all,

LOL 888 are just not worth it. THey were doing a great job but in the last year have just forgotten the online poker. You only have to look at the footfall on the site now! Probably not much more when it was run as Pacific Poker. Just about every game is a rebuy of sorts, not one good freeze out. Who ever is the idiot in charge of this area of the site needs firing. 

The site has gone stagnant and to be honest party poker could soon take there 2nd spot.
You say pokerstars are losing momentum, 888 lost over a year ago. 
They have attached themselves to the WSOP and that is all they can see, onliune for them is finished unless they get some new blood in to revamp and drag their games and software out of the s***. 
But as they don't care about honest good feed back from their cliental, I can't see 888 poker improving but just dropping down the ladder into oblivion.

WHY ARE 888 unable to sort out their server issuses.
or are there other gremlins at work?

Hey Shinyone,

I'm sure they care about feedback (if its useful feedback) but that doesn't always mean things will change with the snap of a finger!

About your tournament comments; do we look at the same lobby? It's filled with freezeouts! Okay, some have gotten a 2nd chance now but that's totally fine... can't compare that to actual rebuys.

Focusing on the WSOP (the american market) would be a smart move, we want those americans playing with us as soon as they are allowed back in mate believe me Wink

Maybe my post will have more effect if posted on another forum Undecided
