Meh, I disagree. And yes I subscribe to the Lock support forums on 2p2 and frequent them a lot. In fact that's about the only forum I post in over there (cuz CC is my tru luv!!!).
To be clear, no site/network available to US players comes close to the quality of PS or even FTP in its glory days. So by comparison all available options suck.
But given what options we have, I'll take Lock. I've been very happy with them. I've withdrawn a total of over 5 figures in the last, oh, 18 months. I just withdrew 4 figures via WU last month, had it in 3 weeks with fee refunded without asking, no worries, and now they've gotten back down under 2 weeks in most cases. Checks suck because they're now drawn on Canadian banks which cause some people problems and delays with their banks. Before that their US-drawn checks were prone to bouncing. Not Locks fault though -- even Stars & FTP had that problem, and it still happens frequently with Merge too. Picking US payment processors is like playing Russian roulette
, the poker sites
get scammed as often or moreso than the players.
Sure, lots of people have mixed experiences, many have legitimate gripes, but a lot of them are also idiots. Same thing on Merge networks. I would rate BCP the best Merge skin but it's not without its own issues too, and Merge itself has them all by the balls and is pretty questionable at times on its own.
So no, Lock is no Stars, but it's better than the Cake skin IMO. Intertops was arguably one of the best Cake/Revo skins but hasn't been available to new US accounts for awhile and even then weren't without their own complaints if you look around. Some have reported Lock is better than Intertops and was leaning on Lock as the new owner of the network to force Cake and Intertops to adopt Lock methods. So YMMV.
