      Now that using FTPs to buy-in for tournament actually requires you to purchase the tickets through the full tilt store (at a higher FTPs cost than before), does that mean using FTPs for tournaments will now affect my MGR?

      Hmmm.. did they? i read somewhere here in the forum that FTPs used for tournaments doesnt affect the MGR, it only does when u actually buy junks off the Full Tilt Store. Wasnt that the case?

      AFAIK, doesn't spending any points affect rackback?
      I'm sure Bart will know.

      anytime you spend points, you get a rakeback hit. Only Iron Man medals are MGR hit free.

      step 3 tickets are $26 in value, I believe. But I'm not sure about the range of tourneys that one can spend the step 3 tickets on - whether it's narrower than before?

      wrong. spending iron man medals resulted in a MGR hit. cant remember the value per medal, but there is definitely a hit. the only thing you could buy from the iron man store without taking an MGR hit were the $26 and $75 tokens because the rake was included in the tourney buy-in.

      it would make sense for the same rationale to apply to the tourney tickets. but who knows.

      spending points of any kind results in a MGR hit.

      I always thought spending medals had no impact on MGR, where did u see this?

      Official line from Full Tilt is that all medal spends (with the except of tournament tokens) will affect NER and RB. I have however seen some purchases that haven't been deducted though.

      Not sure what the impact of the new tokening system is, if someone finds out, please drop me a message or reply to the rakeback FAQ sticky and i will update it.

      Many thanks,
