Oops. What I meant to say was this... NLHE fills up at 9000, whereby it would (used to) fill up at 12000
, but the other games are now
filling up as well due to the overflow
- they haven't in the past.

And then another game of 2000 or 4000 in the round 2, at the end is the same like before.
Complete agree that in the end, it's same as before. However, my main point was how the revamp has affected the games I prefer. If you play NLHE, it shouldn't affect you at all unless you miss the registration. Yes, instead of 12000, it's 9000 people. But if you prefer some of the other games, I find those games are now
filling up, whereas they had not
before. And this is possibly due to the overflow of people that couldn't register in time for NLHE.
This is just a rough example. Let's say before the revamp, 2-7 draw had max 9000, and gave 88 round 2 spots. But now it's max 7000 for 56 spots. While the ratio might be about the same, that game might usually only draw 5000 players anyway. So in effect, there are simply fewer Round 2 tix. And to make it worse, because 3000 people got shut out of NLHE, they will play 2-7 instead, so now it fills up to 7000 instead of 5000, and just 56 tix instead of 88. Does that make sense?
