For some weird reason I am beginning to like the place, but will not deposit there. They do have some serious hardware issues, which usually show up as disconnects, and then canceled tourney's, but I get the feeling they are working on that.
My gut tells
me a lot of it is fault tolerance, and how they haven't dealt with that as well as needs be. At that gut feeling was somewhat verified when I got a WiFi extender. Seems I was getting a lot of re-transmission errors between my laptop and my WiFi router, which translated to disconnects when playing at BOL. When I got the extender those errors were greatly reduced, and I pretty much stopped getting those disco's from BOL. FWIW, a lot of other issues disappeared when I got that extender.
The thing is, they have bigger traffic than WPN (ACR, BCP, True) or Bovada
, or Merge (the US 'standard' go to sites). And that just can't be ignored.
