I believe this happens when the freerolls are going, mainly the 25 free seats for their 109 tournament.
I know a lot of people who still plays lock. Idk, I guess they are holding on hope that lock will bounds back. When they get their act together again, I can see players returning. I know I will. lol
Well all the people you know are clearly wasting their time. Lock has no intentions of paying players, they have only gotten worse and less responsive as time goes on. They are playing on there to because it is so easy to win there, what they don't realize is that the money they are winning is worthless.
