I still prefer FTP's software over Pokerstars.

Also not being that busy, tournaments have manageable fields.

Previously I preferred FTP over Stars by far but alot of the reasons why I preferred it no longer apply.
The games (& often the structure) are what I liked about FTP.
ie. satellite structures were great & they had many that paid out ~1 in 4 players. (ie.. $6 satty to $22 DoubleDeuce.. < those ran all day long!
$14 satty to the $55 Fifty-Fifty
also the $8 18man satty to the $26 T$'s (or token)
the step sng satties... where you could start off in that initial $1 90-man & then was very easy to work up through the $3's, $8's, $26 to $75, being able to opt-out of the steps & play in tourneys once you hit $26
Just in those step satties alone I found it very easy to build a bankroll or to acquire a bunch of $26 tokens to play in many good tourneys (those $26 buyin tourneys on FTP were the bomb!)
The 45man 'reg.-speed' sng's were awesome too!
All of those games were very popular back in the day (pre-BF) on FTP but it is a completely different site nowadays.
Personally I wish Stars had attempted to keep the site closer to how it was in the past. They just weren't getting the numbers though when the site started back up again.
I rarely play on FTP anymore but might start playing there a bit more once I get rolling here in 2014 (< I'm still waiting to get started playing for this year, lol... sigh ).... I've acquired/won a few tourney tickets on there so it might be soon! As mentioned by others, the field-size of the tourneys are much more manageable than over on Stars. Obviously playing on both is the best.
