I normally don’t make posts, but I thought I’d just list a few features I wish was on this site and would really improve the experience. Please feel free to leave other improvements or saying how stupid my ideas are lol. By the way I’m a huge MTT player but not really cash games or SnG’s so these will mainly be focussed on the MTT’s. Sorry cash game grinders!
In a tournament, one of my favourite things is going all in as a bluff as watching that player’s shot clock slowly fill up. Not so fun when it happens to me, so my idea is a time bank. When you’ve used 3/4 of your time, a little button will pop up saying “Activate time bank”. This will give you an extra x amount of seconds and will refresh. I personally think it should be a full shot clock as your time bank and refresh every 5/6 levels, but not carry over.
If any of you have watched an EPT final table, they almost always end up in doing a chip chop. They take up the remaining cash in the prize pool and split it based off of the players % of chips in play. e.g. if using direct numbers, if there is 30m total chips in play and Player X has 15m with 3 players left and the total prize pool left is 10 million (Unrealistic as it may seem, this is all for the ease of maths), Player X’s score would be 15m/30m * 10m = 0.5*10m = 5m, so he would earn 5m no matter the outcome of him winning or busting the very next hand… My idea is at the final table, with 4 or less left, a little box pops up saying ‘Make a deal (0/X amount of players)’. If all players agree, their payout based on chips would show up into chat. When it says the numbers, players must type ‘I agree’ and if all agree, that’s what happens. If not, they play on for the set payouts.
A small thing I know, but I feel if you endure a field of 200 or so players, you should deserve a trophy or bracelet of the tourney name, so when players scout your profile, you can strike fear. Or gloat to everyone about it. Whatever the purpose, would be a cool little feature. A couple apps I play let you equip your bracelet/ring you win and place it next to your name and chip count. This would be a great feature.
Replay if you read this please consider these, this would put the site ahead of all sites out there like pokerstars and could seriously increase awareness of your site and brand. Or reply to this thread laughing at my stupid ideas. Either way, it would be great to know it’s been read and at least looked at and thought about. Thanks. Anyone else has any suggestions please leave in comments, will be great to hear everyone’s opinions.
Edit: Received a message from a member of staff today saying these ideas will be brought up in their next staff meeting in August. Thank you everyone for the likes and replies and improving on my ideas and ultimately letting the staff know, seeing at least one of these features on this site would be brilliant.
