Thing is, more tournaments means more defaults and less rounds per tournament, every hour means something to wait for and more to join. So many tournaments have only 3 members; this isnt a tournament, more of a handicap match.


Back then you had at least 10+ in a tournament and all micros were full which was great . I remember when it used to pop up you had to be so quick to enter as it would be full in seconds which i liked . Now is very different. People dont want to wait ! I dont lol .

The main reason more players were online a while ago is because they want to come online and play straight away and i feel thats because we had more micros and tournaments back then .

I feel if it goes back to what it used to be much more people will come and play .


But you have Micros? and Tournament schedule seems a lot already minus Super/CBY tournaments

10+? Lmao. I remember when there used to be 1 tournament an hour with most around 100 entries or more and full with top players, that's when they were worth entering, there was no need to wait around then as there was that many games available to join, the site is just completely dead now and adding more tournaments certainly won't attract more people.

Budweiser keeps adding new tournaments chosen by members, what difference is it making?!!

always the same people, who don't play tournaments, want to kill them

think your forgetting It wasn't so long ago
micros were full, main tournaments had 10+ and up 30 on an evening, then boom

Baff listened to the same minority, who didn't play in them
removed tournament points from micros, without any explanation at all, but to appease a few and the sake of the majority.

the idea, was to get more ranked games played
did it work NO a very simple NO

were the micros reinstalled with tournament points no
hence micros are dead now

the amount of clan games being played is the simple reason why ranked games are dying

people log on now to play massive amount of clan games
more games than ever played on funkypool
there lies the problem
reduce clan games

the last experiment nearly killed morning pool
numbers are slowly returning, either return 2 micros an hour with tournament points or just remove micros all together

leave hourly tournaments well alone

members cant get ranked games, so why kill off one of the only things that is left to play

change this at your peril and the site will finally roll over and die

reduce clan games to get ranked games, take off the blinkers, clans are killing ranked games

an average player would play 2 FCL games and maybe a Cup game once a fortnight
now an average players plays
2 FCL
1 cup FCL
2 FBL
2 to 3 SL
Killer
individual tournament

then the league splits now too

Lol hahaha I had a feeling you would pop up sprouting the same old rubbish...

All I was saying is adding more tournaments won't attract more people that's a fact. I'm guessing with you been so obsessed with tournaments that you disagree?

Past week or two i have lost interest in funky but been playing for 8 years now. For me personally it wasn't about tournaments although i enjoyed Original Tournaments in my youth with some great players like fuddles, lindsell, fa_cup_73, buddytobud, bgyuk etc then later comes guys like arpeggi, chase475 and whocares8x8. Not sure when i lost interest there but for me its always been about playing friendly games in public lobbies and over the years, less seems to play in those public lobbies which has dis-interested me greatly. Clan League and Friends are the only thing driving me to log in and play with the odd knock around of Mini Golf (need to pass Davy at some point ), shame but can't help feel my emotions has changed in a negative way towards the game and unless top players return or more public lobbies are created then my negative attitude to the game will continue to grow. Without the League i probably wouldn't ever log in unless a friend pm'd me to play (via Facebook or Offline Messages).

If i really had the drive i could play 8 hours a day but the motivation to play has limited that to 2-3 hours or even an hour at times.

Thanks for Reading

If obsessed by tournaments means playing in them then we must all be obsessed.

We can easily find out why people are not playing simply by asking you hahahaha. You have like 6 game events in 6 months all dating back to Feburary, bar the one from yesterday, so what is it that stops you using the site for its main purpose? Perhaps you have been playing but don't get the events, in which case I apologise.

I think the point Craig was making is that there seems to be a lot of comments from people that literally sit on the forums spouting rubbish (your term) and little else. Try playing the game because there are no game events for consistent moaning without providing any solutions.

Stop trolling, try playing the game. If you've lost interest then bye bye.

I guess your homophobic slur with be edited and you'll be free to post the same again in a week and again a week after that....In fact let's be honest, you literally do nothing more that creat friction on the forums and nothing much else.

Not everyone can make an event though and way Craigs talking it feels like only those who play tournaments can have an opinion which isn't entirely true.

I think when tournaments became ranked is when i stopped playing in them.

My Tournament Stats: (Only won) - 27 Total:

Pool (Inc Micros):
3.40 per Year
0.29 per Month
0.06 per Week
0.01 per Day

so every 100 days on average i win a tournament which is just over 3 months

Snooker (Inc Orig) 148 Total - Most here between 2008-2010:
18.5 per Year
1.54 per Month
0.36 per Week
0.05 per Day

so takes me 20 days on average

Not everyone can make an event? Well he can't because literally plays a few clan games here and there and nothing else. I could play for a couple of hours with my eyes sealed shut and get 6 events.

The guy is nothing but a confrontational troll looking for a reaction. We are here trying to find solutions and the guy has used the term 'rubbish, obsessed and bum chum'. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand its people like that this site could do without, but I guess he'll need warning after warning when the obvious is staring people in the face...

Still, good that folk like you are seemingly here to defend t!!

There are guys out there who struggle to make events, take cke and hardy, no disrespect to them but they are two of the weakest players i have played in the Clan League and a Golden Break are the only way they could get an event. Yes they had Runouts and Golden Breaks but on average of like 500 games.

Wasn't defending him, its my personal opinion, when players write shorten the schedule he says we are not tournament players so we are killing the site with our suggestions.

I'm trying to think of guests as well who may never get to play as guys are all in tournaments.

I'll be honest i do prefer hourly schedule as friendlies only when the site was booming and ranked were played in lobbies, sure you could play a 600 to gain rank but at least games are created.

I prefer Friendlies, Craig prefers Ranked, I don't like Micros, Craig does, I don't like the hectic schedule, Craig does. No harm, just a difference of opinion which people are entitled to.

Despite not agreeing with Craig i respect his opinion, just a shame i don't get the same courtesy

Craig likes micros ? I entered loads when something was to be achieved now I enter through boredom so I highly like them

my opinion over ranked games is simple, Admin tried something based on people who didn't play in them
to boost ranked games, it FAILED
so why not put it back to the way it was

people were asked to give it time, we have
it didn't work, total failure

Keep it simple.

ALL games ranked, including guests (give them the default at the start of each session, then even guests get to play for rank)

Points for ALL tournaments, but limit the number of tournaments that count towards a players daily total, and use the highest points won to decide the daily winner. (fair to all, so those with more time than others don't dominate, and encourages more to enter to increase pot)

Thanks for editing the posts, but you've missed one, namely the part where I'm told I have my head up another members backside.

I find it pretty lax that I reported this yesterday via contact us and no action, even with a fleet of mods reading over the forums.

Do staff actually mod the forums, apart from ab?

Are you Amish? Are you really so offended by such a mild accusation, that you have run and tell to admin? We have scant few members left without people actively trying to get other members banned or silenced for using language which is commonplace in everyday life. Maybe the mods did read it, and like everyone that read it - thought it was pretty innocuous.
