    Just looking @ proposed starting times of these daily 3 tournaments...

    Tournament #1... 2:00 ET = 3:30 AM Local time
    Tournament #2... 14:00 ET = 3:30 PM Local time
    Tournament #3... 21:00 ET = 10:30 PM Local time

    U couldn't even schedule the 3 tournaments @ 8 hours intervals to be fair across the board. But u will for the Open League... running 6 times a day, every 4 hours.

    This proposed schedule pretty much ensures that I will not be able to play a single game week nights.

    The 3rd and last tournament of the day starts 21:00 ET (10:30 PM Local time)... kinda tough when u leave for work @ 7:30 AM Local time (6:00 ET), and usually dun get home til 5:00 PM Local time (3:30 ET)...

    Reconsider the 8 hour interval... to be fair across the board... it certainly isn't a level playing field @ these starting times...

      How about putting the prize money for 20VPP upto 13.3% of the prize money for 150VPP, rather than the current 10%?

      My reasoning is 13.3% is the precentage that 20VPPs is of 150VPPs.

      I also notice that the bulk of the prizepool is for the top 30. What happens to the prize money left over in the unlikely event that the top 30 spots are taken by 20VPP players? How about a monthly freeroll for Premier League players with these monies?

        Total Agreement

        Hiya Easy - i totally agree with you - in fact i was saying the very same thing to my girlfriend last night - if it is a global league ? Then why not have equally spaced apart times for it ???

        In England i think the times are 07:00
        14:00
        02:00
        I'm sure there's somewhere in the world where these times may be better - but i don't know of it.


        Hiya TC - once again - total agreement - in fact i would go as far as to say the +20 but -150 players remind me of White Star players back in the good old PSO league. I think there getting ripped off to be honest. There's nothing " Premier " about 1/1500 for $500 now is there ???

        But once again making players aim for 150 vpp's a month in order to achieve the top prize is a brilliant marketing strategy.
        Abit like making players pay 1 10 in order to avoid a larger field of 10 000.

        What is the point of someone going to all that trouble to qualify for the Premier league who has'nt got the bankroll to attain 150vpps when they can aim for $1500 in the open league ?
        ( Despite of the larger fields).
        And b4 some1 from the " company " tells me they can qualify for the Prem - then win it - then they will have $500 to spend on obtaining vpp's !!! Don't bother !!!!

        I am well aware it's a freeroll with free prizes ( thank you Pokerstars i would'nt have a bankroll if it was'nt for this ). I just think they should be a little kinder towards players with less than 150 vpp's. And just in case your wondering - i have 150 vpps already.

          +1

          Wouldn't one every 8 hours be fairer?

          The Open and Qualifier league tournaments are evenly spaced, so what's the reasoning behind this odd scheduling?

            i totally agree in chnging playing times or even set up 2 or more extra tours.

            i am from the netherlands and indeed it a little strange
            times are 8 in the morning ( working or being daddy), 8 at night( for me playable), and 3 at night or so! mostly i am sleeping.

            so most europeans won't be able to play therefore they are left out

            the price setup i didn't see yet but if it is indeed that the only place to realy earn money that compares to the kind of trouble u have to go to to reach a certain point then indeed maybe u should re-evaluate the descissions because i bothered this time to get 150 vpp but i don't have constant abbility to do so or even willing to do so if indeed it start smelling like a ripoff!!

            PS this is a golden opportunity to create something nice don't blow it

                As with all new leagues we will see how the first couple of months go. With regards to timing of the events we will of course review these once we see how the current times work. If we can improve them we will do so.

                  but why only 3 starting times and the rest 6??????????????????

                    It would be nice to see deeper stacks in the premier league. A little more skill a little less bingo. umbup:

                      Just wondering who ur catering to... Review after a couple of months? Big joke... right??

                      U've effectively eliminated me from being competitive in the Premier League... with no recourse to play in the Open League either...

                      Way to go, PSO Admin... NOT!!!!!

                        Thank you PSO Admin... for ur empathy... LMAO...

                        Please explain why the Premier League tournaments are NOT equally spaced time-wise as it is with the other Leagues...

                        Ur prompt response would be greatly appreciated... as ur previous TOTALLY AVOIDED the question as to why the Premier League isn't on 8 hour intervals...

                        Or @ least... have the decency to admit ur marketing to a specific target... Geograhically-wise...

                          At least he did mention that they will review staying in just the Open League and having an opt out of the Premier League.

                          Not much but something Easy

                            PSO Admin, A bit of logic needs to be used here. There is a 6 hour difference between Europe an North America (average) By using some common sense and a bit of logic, why don't you implement 4 tournaments and spaced at every 6 hours....what so hard about that? And please implement it for August 1st May I suggest that you make fair for both continents Here's a suggestion, 12:00AM, 6:00AM, 12:00PM and 6:00PM umbup:
