  1. I still have hope lol.
  2. What's up with the Roadmap? We were supposed to get quick chat and a casual lobby redesign this month. Just curious. Roadmap

    Casual Lobby Redesign

    I'm not sure the status of this update, but if players are able to customize matches I think there should be blind length limitations. Shorter blind lengths for lower buy-in's and longer blind lengths for higher buy-in's.

    I think this game would be better without preset actions altogether. Players should have to wait thier turn in order to make a selection. IMO, removing preset actions would place a greater emphasis on RAM movements. Just a thought.

    Thank You Devs

    The new ranked lobby UI is incredible!!! Love it!!! I've played about 12 Diamond matches so far. The competition is great!!! The user experience is great!!! I voice chatted with other Diamond players and there's a general consensus that more Diamond incentives is a dire need. We really want that. My personal goal currently is to reach 1400, just because. See you at the tables!!!

    Ranked Lobby Redesign

    Thoughtful post, but I respectively disagree. This ranked lobby redesign has been in the works for a long time. I'm finally excited to play ranked games again. Previously matchmaking for ranked games was 'automatic' which was the source of the problem. Now matchmaking is transparent and 'manual'. If the player base were allowed to send mass invites to diamond players across 'all regions' that doesn't equate to finding a diamond match quicker. Some of those diamond players may already be in a game, in a different time zone (sleep), or offline. Additionally, most 'online' diamond players will already be searching for a match too. I also don't know if players would be open to receiving constant table invites (in-game or thru their platforms network). With your suggestion there would have to be an 'opt out' option (for in-game invites), and if players decided to opt out this sort of setup would collapse. The new ranked lobby redesign is the best way for diamond players to link up. Also, diamond players have a guaranteed 'option' to play on platinum tables. The tiered buy-ins is also extra incentive to wait for a diamond table to populate. Let's give this update time to develop, because it is much better than any matchmaking setup since ranked games were introduced. Hopefully, the devs will continue to take heed to the community's feedback in regards to more diamond incentives and in-game notifications to help diamond players coordinate better. Some other suggestions have been to extend the ranked games season to give players more time to reach diamond. Or, IMO, the devs can create a more robust monthly tournament by introducing top 5 (or top 10) incentives and prizes so that players are enticed to keep playing for 'supreme bragging rights'.

    Ranked Lobby Redesign

    The wait is over!!! Thanks devs!!! Right now players are switching tiers like a chicken with its head cut off, but I'm sure everyone will adapt fairly quick. Good deal!!!
  8. IMO, the devs should display the seat number inside the circle instead of the selected venue for PC. This way players will be more aware of the process. The goal for the current setup is for players to know and coordinate venue selection, which I think is unnecessary. As it stands, each player can see their venue selection in the background. Players will know, by default, that majority rules once the match begins. As for the PC player count, that's a bigger issue that I would rather discuss with the devs directly. In a nutshell, this game needs to have more exposure and more convenient access to pry PC players away from website based poker where downloading additional software (Steam) is not required. Good topic and post.
  9. Nah... its all good. I'm not here to be perfect. I mess up sometimes and I own my mistakes. I care about the game and its future. I care about the devs and want them to continue developing. I care about the playerbase having the best user experience. During my tenure on this forum I've tried to be fair and balanced with the majority of my posts. Most of my positive posts are ignored by forum members. The reason I've stayed around is because late last year the devs reached out to us and I didn't want to miss the opportunity to reach back. Since late last year most of the likes for my post have come from the devs and I really appreciate them. They're really the only people who matter in regards to developing the game. IMO, the forum response to the devs reaching out has been lackluster. The Roadmap forum response is evidence. I've only called one person on this forum a troll and that was Rotravi aka Tor Ivar. I considered his repetitive posts and constant critique of the game (w/o considering the Roadmap) trolling. Although, his actions still don't justify me calling him a troll and I apologize for that. Personally, I don't think I've been trolling the forum (or creating odd troll items). Sometimes I might be satirical, but I try not to be offensive. If I've offended anyone in any way, I apologize. I'm not a messianic figure and I will never be perfect on this earth. So it's not my goal to try and meet those expectations. To avoid confliction on this forum I'll just direct message the devs moving forward. Have a great day!
  10. Well I'm done with the PC version since it's just a test site. I'm not a test dummy. Plus, my PC doesn't have a lot of graphical power. Farmer... You put the cherry on top for me. I'm so tired of this complacent player base trying to shut me up. This is a FORUM!!!! I talk about more real shit than anybody!!!! I try more shit than anybody!!!! And I'm still disrespected!!! SO FUCK IT!!! I'M OUT!!!!
  11. Nah... it ain't even like that. I'm currently laying in my bed playing PP on my laptop. As a customer I'm noticing some things that should be fixed to enhance the user experience. I'm not trolling at all. This is not an odd topic. It's been mentioned several times in the past. Farmer, I like you, but watch your tone with me. I hope you're enjoying retirement. My post are for the devs to see. Not necessarily forum members. On a lighter note, I'm playing my third ranked game. The new ranked setup is working smoothly. Devs... Why is there a PC version??? Is it just for testing??? I'm sure the PC player base would like to know.
  12. I just googled 'free poker'. I found PP on page 7 and it was a link to the Playstation store. I found PP for Steam on page 9. It's hard to find a business when it's located in the back alley.
  13. That makes sense and thanks for the response, but how does this method hold up against the competition. Right now I can go to WSOP, Pokerstars, etc. and play directly from their website. (Pokerstars has to be downloaded.) I've spent some time playing PP on my PC, and as a customer I'm not astounded with the results (regarding the player population). Something needs to change immediately. The goal should be to penetrate the poker market and demographics using the proper channels. While Steam is popular with most PC gamers it's not the place for 'casino games'. I've checked multiple times over the past year or so. The proof is in the pudding.... If they want the money to grow they need to compete in the 'right arena'. They should tell Valve (or whoever) to give them a break on this game specifically and let potential customers download this game directly from the website. I know it's possible. My wife asked me the other day... 'Why is there a Walgreens across the street from every CVS?". I told her to 'compete' is to be 'visible'. Customers have to know that you exist. The life we live in is all about 'convenience' and downloading one software just to get to another isn't convenient... at all.
