You guys literally cut 40% from the starting stack, keep the same blinds with no notice? Starting stacks were at 500 yesterday.
Yes I believe they did change to 300. It says on the tournament info.
Real question, why?
I have no idea, I wasn’t aware until you commented. It’s probably down to feedback, but I couldn’t be sure on that, unless they just wanted to speed it up a little maybe.
Happened overnight, nobody clicks the info tab before starting a game that’s been around for years now that hasn’t changed.
Absolutely unplayable now with only 22.5 TOTAL BBs in play after 3 minutes.
I clicked on them to check and they are all the same now at 300
Guess I have to find a new format. Sigh.
Just as an add on to this, please note that this is actually a temporary change in line with our 12 days of turbo’s event. It will change back to 500 on December 15th.
Makes no sense.
Yeah, the 300 chips start is kind of dumb. Already a shove fest on first hand. Traffic on that should slow down because of this change.
yeah im gonna have to play a different game mode now lol it went from being a skill game to just all in every hand now, i mean by the second level starting stack is 9 big blinds lol might as well go play a casino game, takes the skill right out in my opinion.
lol. I think you underestimate how much gamble people have in them. This format doesn’t appeal to me, but…I mean, there’s a whole forum on slot machines, so…
Another terrible decision on the part of the ignition management team. I would love to be able to speak to the people in charge of making these absolute ridiculous changes and decisions. They must never have played a casino or poker game in their life!
At least its only a temporary change im just gonna play cash games until the 15th.
I actually love it and hope it stays.
Of course slot players like this, change it back please. Even though I’m running better since the change, it’s not poker, it’s baccarat.
I didn’t like it at first, but the 300 starting chips have grown on me. I Wish it would stay!
I have been on a good run since the change to the 300 chips, I think when they change it back they should keep this as a option. Good for those who play hyper turbos, it could be like a hyper turbo jackpot sng option.
Why are these back again!?!?
The starting chip stack was brought back as a permanent change
