Paid? I hope it won't be too much as I am poor. Hahaha! Heck, I can save money. I'll play.

 

It should cut down on problems like that, thankfully.

 

Thank you for the response, sir.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

Also I was a bit upset toward the Last few Of the Tourney... People got wild with the Betting, its quite aggravating, Yet kinda to be Expected given the Platform... Yet they were doing something else that is not cool, during the Last hour or so, it seems that folks were HOLDing Games in attempts to keep new games from starting, this is disruptive and should be fixed for the Next tournament.. It is the Q system that needs the most work I think, (also the ramdomness of the cards does not seem real, it seems fixed) yet not sure if they can fix it with out making new tables? What people do is wait until a table gets full or almost full and click on table yet don't enter, or they sit and wait till its about to start and then leave then do the pull out move... its shady, and cheating, plus disruptive to game play... the only way to fix this problem is use the other style of Q home has where it puts you in wait for a table, then calls you and gives you a set amount of time to join the game, before it gives someone else the chance to join... it would also be better if all tables have assigned players like a real tournament and not just the finals room games... 

 


I noticed many of the same issues that you mentioned here. I've already cited the irregularities in the card randomisation. The table antics later in the day were another matter. I played in a few games during the last hour in which players were obviously stalling for time. One or two people whose names were on the leaderboard were repeatedly letting the call timer run down the full 15 seconds to drag out the games. Not that I would have made the next round anyway but I would have been very frustrated if I was close. Unfortunately, it's within the game's parameters to do so if that's their prerogative but it was hardly a sporting way to act. The number of people running from table to table calling all-ins on the first hand was annoying as well. I wonder how many might have been people using alternate accounts to disrupt the games.
Reaching the next round was really not a priority for me as much as having a little fun. It's a shame sometimes how people choose to act but I'm not sure what Digital Leisure could do about it.
Once the tournaments have an entry fee, some of the shenanigans will be less frequent. It would be pretty pathetic for people to pay for multiple bracelets in order to cheat. Not that it will stop everyone.

this weekend we are hosting the BETA Poker Tournament


Nice job using the same crappy turbo blind structure for the qualifying round.

 

At the first two tables I played, I saw four showdowns with the same hole cards.

 

Your poker is still awful. It's nearly as bad as the rest of your table games.

 

Everyone who's ever played in a real tournament or casino knows it, but you just don't seem to care.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Funny how this tournament is in *PIZZA CENSOR*ING BETA!

 

EDIT: Okay, we get it, you hate Casinos. if you don't like DL's poker, then go to Sportswalk and play poker there. or  Poker's on your personal space, then go buy it at Mass Media Store. or just use any Time Machine, get a PS3 at launch, go into Open Beta, wait till EA stuff brings. you play poker there. SIMPLE AS THAT

 

EDIT 2: Before any of you give a silly reply, then go buy a Vegetable Juice

Really Al? Vegi-table Juice... seriously? Al, do you play Poker? Did you play in the Beta?

 

 

And yes Miss Liza and DL, There will be less of the problems we have been talking about when the game is pay to play, yet Digital Leasure, are some of the random card sequances and issues of Q a possible Fix for these Paid games, or will we see the same set up and programing we did in the Beta? Is the game set up finished now or still being ironed out?

 

Just wondering... 

 

I did spend some money recently on your HOME stuff mainly due to your exceptional customer service, and game play value over time and money, plus I wanted to try out the Gifting service you came out with... 

 

Yet I am not sure after what I saw and the structure of time, would I spend much money on a non beta weekend tournament... or any money at all... honestly.

 

Which is sad... cause Home could really benifit from this kinda game related social interation we do not see much anymore...

I didn't make the original BETA for the tournament and was hoping to have another chance, but I noticed last night when I logged in that while they are doing another BETA run, they will not be handing out any new spots. I was pretty dissappointed to see that. <sigh>
