re: Poker & ultimate bet players
I noticed this, too.
You used to get points if you were dealt a hand. Now you only get points if you contribute to the pot. For a tight player, they made it 5 times harder to accrue points and clear bonuses. Plus, I noticed their hats in the points store went up from 2400 to 4000.
I was thinking of firing off a dissatisfied email to them. The last time they made a stupid change, it was the 4-hand limit on the hand history window. When they got a bunch of sour emails, they raised the limit to 100. It could work with this change, too.
Most places have a certain rake per hand that must be reached for all players to get points (Stars & Titan do this, among others). UB could at least do that. Maybe crank up the earning rate a little to compensate. Then only the penny & nickel players would have a hard time earning.
I love UB's software, but they always seem to come up with some hair-brained changes that seem to piss off most of their customers.
