This is a discussion on It just got me thinking within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; i think the DDOS attacks are co-ordinated with Winning network as a way to reduce traffic and get off all radars since there is so
i think the DDOS attacks are co-ordinated with Winning network as a way to reduce traffic and get off all radars since there is so much bot talk, poker king talk, superuser talk etc. These attacks will reduce the traffic and distrupt many bot farm/teams. but why
There must be some cycle between sites to be top esp for US players. When I first was going to play, Carbon was the big site. everyone was get on carbon the biggest US gtd and all that and then suddenly they started banning players, changed cashiers, slowed payouts to a crawl and let their traffic drop to where the site is a shell of what it was. WHY!!!
Suddenly Merge is Ice cold and BOvada was killing it, remember 3 years ago, It was hot hot hot. they were giving away ticket sot their biggest games in lucky draw free rolls (which I won a few tickets and started my roll). GtDs were doubling and all that. Bovada could of easily cleared millon dollar sundays but never tried. Then suddenly they update their software and it sucks and everyone leaves
Winning network never had big time games in fact during the carbon Bovada run, they were very small. But then Bovada decides it doesnt want massive traffic so now WInning network picks up the ball and runs with it a few years and It grows grows to where it is now with giganto GTDs and the most players and all the headaches that have come with that. and now It looks to me like Winnning network will retool downsize and when everything gets stable again, it will be much smaller. Looking like it did 4 or so years ago.
SO WHAT NETWORK STEPS UP NEXT and ask yourself this
There was plenty of action why didint Merge, Bovada and Winning all be killing it at the same time Millon dollar BCP games , 500K Bovada Games, 250K games on Merge and they would all kill but why not at the same time, I mean the players are there and will play multi sites. Why would all 3 not go big at once, either they dont want the money or ITS PLANNED LIKE THIS
Eh. To be fair: the only reason why Carbon was so popular was the VIP structure. Cashouts were abysmal... even back then. When they gutted their VIP rewards program everyone left in droves.
Literally the only reason to play Carbon back then (and the reason it was reviewed so highly) was the VIP structure was insane. Literally gold mine.
Bovada has always been the "secure" payout option. I don't think I've ever heard of people question it. Also Bovada (now ignition) still is arguably the highest trafic US room.
ACR and Bovada are comparable and really depends on what you want.

Makes sense about Carbon, that was when I was just starting to look into poker so I missed the carbon train, It just seems a few years ago Bovada was absolutely killing it, BCP wasnt anything but very small and not a lot of players. It was like every GTD was getting crushed and this was all people talked about, then they upgraded (dowgraded) the software and there really isnt any excitement now on bovada ignition, but then out of nowhere winning network just become a mammoth. Makes sense about the carbon VIP thing, but I guess what Im driving at is if Carbon was still killing it and Bovada killing adn now Winning, it seems like all 3 sites should be killing it but it seems to go in cycles, Watch after Winning DDOS's themselves back to small, if BetOnline suddenly becomes the goto site then something is up LOL
Jus tlooked at Ignition Mtt schedule and it really isnt comparable at all to Winnings Schedule but they could be and I dont understand why they dont want to be,
