      Hi, All.
      Regular players from Russia will planning new action against PartyPoker new Rake system.

      Information: PartyPoker has changed rake system in cash games from Dealt to Weighted Contributed at 25 August 2011. This will result in slower PartyPoints earning rate about 30%! Now it is much harder to clear a bonus, to reach any status and almost impossible to obtain Palladium Elite status.

      From September 15, at 0:00EDT (UTC-4) we planning any tables sitout. We planning write to PartyPoker about decrease speed of earning party points (about 30% decrease) and about return old rake system.






      WE want return DEALT rake system!!!!

      UPDATE: At September 14, we planning write many letters to PartyPoker support. Our requirement - return DEALT Rake system. Please, write letters to support with this requirement at September 14 (mailto: info@partypoker.com vipteama@palladiumlounge.com).

      Please, support us at September 15.
      Please, inform everybody about it.

      Sincerely yours,
      Russian PokerStrategy community.

      Letter example...

      To PartyPoker management

      From poker player from all around the world
      From the community of PokerStrategy
      From the regular players on PartyPoker with the highest statuses (Palladium Elite, Palladium or Gold)

      Good day!

      We want to inform you about some aspects and clarify the situation associated with introduction of the new rake distribution system on PartyPoker.

      First of all, we would like to pay your attention to the fact that we have got to know about this innovation only after these changes went into effect. In other words, you haven't considered it necessary to inform high status players about switching to a new rake distribution system. Such system was introduced at the moment when many players were during the process of earning PartyPoints for statuses and/or bonuses, planning and forecasting in advance when and how they will be able to do it. By introducing this new system in the middle of a quarter you have crushed all their plans for the game because with the new system players began to gain far less points for the same period of time rather than with the old system. We are sure that information about such global changes must be published beforehand.

      Based on the foregoing, let us ask a few rhetorical questions:
      1. Why PartyPoker hasn't informed players about the new point accrual system in advance?
      2. Why the new system was introduced in the middle of the quarter? During the period when for an one and a half month we were playing in accordance with the conditions of the one status system and you change it to the another.

      Today many regular players have already gone to play to other poker rooms. Also, many players are about to leave as soon as possible due to introduction of the new point accrual system. They have been unable to leave immediately only because they are linked to various bonuses and status at the moment.

      The worst conditions for the playing at PartyPoker at this moment were created. You don't leave us an opportunity to continue playing in your room. We will be forced to switch to "another" poker room.

      Due to the foregoing, on behalf of the regular players for continuing our further cooperation, we ask you to cancel new point accrual system.

      At this moment you have lost trust. We don't know what you are going to change tomorrow and what might happen with our funds on the accounts. You have proved as an unreliable partner, which can change the conditions of the playing at any time. In this case, and due to an immediate leaving of considerable number of players, we have reasons to reconsider popularity of your poker room among the players and in general about of your future existence.

      You position yourself as "leading entertainment company in digital format, that meets the requirements of the market and offers its customers a secure, interesting and exciting games for real money". With such attitude as now your image in the interactive gaming market will be significantly reduced.

      To make you somehow pay attention to this case and make it clear that this is important for many players of middle and high limits at 15th of September, we will stop to play at every possible limit, but we will be surely with you, namely, we will sit in "Sit-OUT" on every possible table.

      Also, we inform you that this letter will be sent into dispute settlement service eCOGRA and the Gambling Commission in Gibraltar.

      Quote from your own site: "We understand that you value your time, want to have fun, and free from hassles or problems."

      We are waiting for your response which would help us to make conclusions about PartyPoker future.

      We look forward to understanding and continuation of long-term cooperation.

      Our requirement - return DEALT Rake system.

      Yours sincerely
      From poker player from all around the world
      From the community of PokerStrategy
      From the regular players on PartyPoker with the highest statuses (Palladium Elite, Palladium or Gold)

      Final stage of boycott

      Thank u guys for supporting boycott!

      We have perfectly worked this Thursday, but on Friday because of bad coordination in time, the action has passed less successfully. However, even on the one-day action management of PatyPoker has quickly reacted, having showered participants of the action with bonuses. It shows that they are afraid of players anger and loss of the most important segment of their online regulars which work hard on rake plantations of PatyPoker.
      But they will not bring down us from a right way with some stupid bonuses, with which bosses of PatyPoker are trying to lure us! Our requirements remain invariable - to return old system of rake (Dealt) or to reduce cost of statuses and bonuses approximately by 30 % which we have lost because of transition to new system, and also that they apologize for the decision on change of system was accepted without the prevention and in the middle of the quarter because of what reception of the status and bonuses for many players became the extremely inconvenient !

      For acknowledgement of gravity of our intentions we will carry out a final stage of our boycott. All to a clod the devil-may-care attitude to players of bosses of PatyPoker isn't indifferent, and also with all with that who doesn't agree with new rake system (which has concerned all of us and has lowered even loose players PP on 10 %), we urge to come and make the protest this Saturday and Sunday.
      Thus for bigger efficiency and mass character of the protest, we urge you to sit down tables in a sit-out from 18.00 on MOSCOW TIME ( 10.00 EDT ) and till 3.00-4.00 ( 18.00-19.00 EDT ) on SATURDAY and SUNDAY

      Occupy the maximum quantity of tables! Occupy turns in waitlist on the maximum quantity of tables of any limit (for this purpose it is not necessary to have big bankroll, and also it is possible to occupy turn, even sitting on 18 tables) and wait untill 120 seconds will passed.
      Don't sit down a table if on it 5 players in a sit-out already sit!
      Search for tables with active game and sit there!
      Don't start new tables!

      IMPORTANT! All participants of a final stage of boycott send the letter of the following maintenance:

      I welcome employees of support of PatyPoker. I wanted, that you have informed your management with the message from the majority of players of PatyPoker, and also from me personally for I support the sounded positions and I gather together with other players, to leave PatyPoker if your management doesn't listen to us in the near future:

      "We regretfully inform management of PatyPoker that if it won't react to requirements of simple players and won't pay attention to our boycott which will be repeated this Saturday and Sunday we will be compelled to leave PatyPoker shortly. We remind that we sharply protest against new system of addition of points and we demand to return old rake system (Dealt) or to reduce cost of bonuses in shop, and also statuses approximately by 30 %, also we demand guarantees of that any similar changes in the future will be carried out with the timely prevention of players, instead of to occur in the middle of the quarter, destroying plans of many players for reception of statuses and bonuses. We want, that management PartyPoker has commented on a current situation, instead of writing sample letters as it only shows unwillingness to cooperate and make a compromise with players.

      Yours faithfully, community of players of PatiPokera, and also personally ( your name)"

      Send similar letters even if you yet haven't solved, whether will leave PatyPoker or not. Bosses of PatyPoker should understand all gravity of our intentions, and also that consequence in what can result their actions on changing of rake system behind backs of players.

      Support the action! Today the corporation without warning are changing rake system , tomorrow their support don't answer week, the day after tomorrow your money are frozen on accounts and we become hostages of one more FTP!

      imo the weighted system is by far more fair than the dealt one, but it end up being that partypoker took the same amount of money from rake but gave back less pps.
      if they would give the same rakeback as before but in the weighted method it would be better,
      so in my opinion this boycott should claim that, a weighted system with more rakeback (same as before at least) and not a dealt system. its also a nice way of punishing nits and make a better game quality :s_biggrin:
