@pirahn it's true that Unibet needs a competitive tournament schedule to bring more players to the site. Of course the offer should be improved at all levels, but what attract people the most are big GTDs, and you just cannot introduce such tournaments without a properly working qualifiers system. I agree with you at everything but this point. It's a circle and one doesn't exist without another. I believe that good qualifiers might actually help to build the site, starting now with the current players pool, slowly expanding the major tournaments fields and promoting increasing GTDs to new players. It's like @VikingsAF mentioned of his first experience with 25€ MTT on the site. There are many players dreaming of playing the Abyss once in a while, and they are already here! Maybe if they were given a chance to qualify they would tell their friends afterwards how fun it was Smirk All the tournaments with growing GTDs would naturally attract players from the outside. The more players are here, the easier is putting more 50€+ to the schedule. Well, maybe you've gone a bit too optimistic with a midweek 6-8k GTD. A nobel idea, but for a freezout with 50€ BI it required 120-160 players to cover it, ambicious for a start. I agree that recreationals love bounties, and thus these would encourage them to qualify more willingly. Still, now we have only three scheduled 50€s in the offer: Sputnik,  Milky Way and Odyssey. On account of above I don't really see nothing wrong in feeding them with daily 3tx GTD.

   Now, nominated for 2019 Pulitzer Prize: ... fanfares ... @NMPfan Thumbs Up I just like every word. A+

   I agree that the specific daily majors are probably too much for the start.  Although from a regular perspective it might be interesting, the newcomers would rather see the same tourney everyday.            

   The Main/Tournament Lobby Design is another thing. Its simplicity/functionality/easy navigation is also a big factor in attracting new players to the site. I'm sure these issues can be resolved soon with your help.

   Exchanges. As a regular I would like to keep the chance to exchange my tickets, but the new policy is real, let have @MoreTBC some fun...at least for a while Cheeky

Thank you, thank you @Psycho79 I've been dreaming of that prize ever since I started reading this thread and it finally happened Waterfall Laugh

One short comment on this "All the tournaments with growing GTDs would naturally attract players from the outside" This has been their assumption a few years ago,  they made big GTD's assuming it would naturally attract players, and it didn't work out cause information just doesn't reach outside people that well, and nowadays they always think of that time when implementing stuff, learning from their mistakes, but if they take full advantage from the promos that bring a lot of players over (uos, uo, gaming streamers, etc)  , and if everything else gets pushed at the same time then it might work out this time.

@Psycho79 The daily deep impact is €25 to 4k gtd with zero sats. For uk players it starts too early. With a decent sat structure and a rebuy option 6k to 8k gtd is an easy range to achieve. 

Fixing lobby, bugs, table balancing etc.all need to be looked at for a better experience. But were in danger of moving away from the core discussion.

@NMPfan Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I felt so bad about the Milky way qualifiers that never starts, so I remove all daily except one and changed it to a 3 TIX, this will kick in from tomorrow. It's great to see the commitment and passion from the community about how we should "Make MTT's Great Again". This was indeed a great community thread.

@WuDu You having a bit different look at the issue, that's how it is, nothing is just black or white, we're all humans and have different preferences on what is good or bad.
Life would be really dull otherwise. Thaks for sharing @WuDu .

Well, I think it's bad manner to quarrel with such a  prestigious prize winner and the most influential literary critic in the area...Tongue

@NMPfan It has been said here already: time passes and lessons have been learned. The assumptions that might be false in the past can be made again as possibilities have changed. Remember an average field of 10€ evening tourneys one year ago? Using only UOS as a bergaining chip can do a lot more for this site than anything else in the past has done. Supported with appropriate marketing and an attractive offer will make people stay.

@pirahn you are right again: a descent major in the primetime would certainly do the part of the job at least. Impact starts at 5PM UK, definitely too early for a huge number of players. Still uncertain if doubled GTD would be covered now, even if it was a 50€ reentry. Again, that demands good sat structure and needs to be introduced during UOS optimally. Right now a bit bigger than Impact's GTD might be achieved with 25€ 6max Bounty Turbo Reentry 6-7:30 UK probably. Supported with some sats as well.  All the mentioned factors combined. Still waiting for a Daily 50€ thou @Leo-Unibet Thumbs Up

 

It's hard to get a full double up at the first level but you can certainly try picking up some chips here and there building your image for the next levels...Happy

Sweet @Leo-Unibet , thanks. Was mostly mentioning the Milky ways so much as an example of a sattie format that didn't work, and where it did kinda work it's mostly just on lifesupport by people with tickets. I'm actually glad they existed, cause they help me look a bit less crazy for always saying these things Laugh . Looking forward to seeing Unibet made great again Very Happy

Introducing a new schedule during UOS is problematic. It can be an overkill for regs. There are many other factors dependant on the uos schedule and any new schedule.

Thumbs Up That's a nice change as well, I'll watch them as well! Our views don't differ that much. Actually, I started playing MTTs here after you came on and changed things. OK, reducing the DS Fireball from 100 to 50 Euro wasn't that great for me, but understandable for you to do.

Keep a close watch on the East-Asian region in the coming months. What's more peace prize worthy than helping to end a 68-year war? OK, besides being black and able to read a teleprompter, of course... Rofl

 

 

We're gonna win on so many levels! We're gonna win, win, win. You're gonna get so tired of winning, you're gonna say: "Mr. President please, we don't wanna win anymore, it's too much!" And I'm gonna say: "I'm sorry, we're gonna keep winning because we're gonna make America great again!"

Hey @Leo-Unibet

Tonight's qualifier to 50€ 3xGTD r/a structure must have been changed, but... that lasted almost 2hours and Comet late reg had been closed before I could use the ticket. I understand the reasons for why the rebuy period has been extended again, but I think 2 hours is just too long for a satellite with 15 runners on Unibet. Especially that this particular sat seemed the only one working/covering GTD with it's structure, and would be a good pattern to copy. The only thing is players need that to finish much earlier to be able to register Comet at its first stages, or even help starting it whatsoever. I think it would be reasonable to merge two satellites with 2xTXGTD and apply the same structure as above to them. In that shape they have much greater chance to cover GTD and feed the target on time. Thanks for reading and considering it. Best Regards, GL!
