    WTF?!?!?? I am 0-25 now on POTM boxes, how is this even remotely possible????????????????????????ย 
  • dkarski87dkarski87 Registered Users, Member 2,959 Posts
    well the odds are pretty crap, but 0-25 is awful.ย  We had a guy spend 96k on POM boxes to get everyone, others spent 10k and got everyone. Just the way the see-saw works I guess.

    96k!!! ย Dang thatโ€™s a lot of auto tapping!
    I'm confused by what you mean by 5.7 and 5.8.ย  You mean the round and level?ย

    Yeah I know it can swing either way, but 25 straight with nothing should never happen! Of course you keep thinking it has to be the next one and then nothing again. I seriously want to know how long it will go before I pull a player (and Iโ€™m sure it will be the worst one thatโ€™s never a bonus player) but Iโ€™m basically just pissing gold away. I might just say screw it and take the next week off, Iโ€™m turned off enough where Im losing all interest in the game.ย

    Tighten up that ballsack and open some more boxes!!!
  • LooseballsackLooseballsack Registered Users, Member 26 Posts
    Haha nah Iโ€™m done, wouldnโ€™t be surprised if they monitor these boards and adjust the odds for the people that complain. Maybe that would explain how not hitting on one box is even possible.ย

    This gets me a lot too. I fell into this โ€˜trapโ€™ last month. I didnโ€™t even like the potm boxes but I was thinking I might try one or two. Well, I didnโ€™t get anyone and one thing led to another. Did 20k and got a player 3 times(2x Mercedes and a melodeon). Neither player got leveled but I just couldnโ€™t believe I was whiffing....sigh. Denial can be a killer.ย 

    I actually did real well with this monthโ€™s potm boxes. 9k got me everyone except Tatis. I decided to quit while I was still happy.ย

    I opened 40 POTM boxes last night bc I felt 360 players were worth it.

    I got THREE total players in 40 pulls. No, not three different players a few times. Three players IN TOTAL, one of which I pulled twice. Those odds are lies. No way one inย five boxes gets any player.

    Then I remembered: It is VIP weekend. Box odds are rigged VIP weekends. I have only myself to blame.

    Yes, we are aware of the game having crashing issues in the middle of WoH, but we can't compensate you for the gold you lostย at this time. This is done on a case by case basis. - TSB Customer Service

    This was exactly me last month. At least you were chasing guys that would help your team.

    edit: i will add that box results notwithstanding, these potm boxes are fire if you're in the top bucket in terms of matchups.ย

    I wonโ€™t get into the theories. I have my own. Regardless, I was speaking from a mathematical perspective. If youโ€™re a believer in this or any other theory, then the math doesnโ€™t matter.ย

    Can we agree that math plays no factor in their box pulls?

    I use the odds as a baseline for expectations. My friends and I use it as a guide in terms of how we approach a given box. Some( hello @jmsorioles33 ) even have detailed spreadsheets to optimize spending. That said, I certainly don't discount the engagement theory. In fact, I'm a believer too. For everyone else, the math matters. Or at least, that's my theory.ย ย

    Are you discounting my nice poker tournament finish yesterday since I recently restarted playing after a long absence? ย I played for 90 minutes in a free tournament and got $1.45 for my efforts.ย

    If there's ever a poker tourney among the guys at the forums, @jmsorioles33 will fleece everyone. Also, this would be insanely fun!

    Recently getting bored with TSB, I went back to my poker site and played a tournament Wednesday night. I completely bombed. I had lost my patience. So I played in โ€œplay moneyโ€ tournament and finished 3/37 just to practice patience. Since then Iโ€™ve only played 2 tournaments (both free to enter) and finished 58/652 and 16/731 to make a whopping $3.05. The poker money goes to Loweโ€™s where my wife and I get stuff we need for the house. Needless to say, she likes me playing poker a little more than TSB.ย

    Nice! ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    Opened two boxes yesterday.. one 500 box pulled acuna.. one 250 box pulled machado. True story ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
    Iโ€™ve had some luck over the years but never best player first pull in each box consecutively. I suppose it might be another 5 years before this happens ๐Ÿค”

    Note: didnโ€™t login at all Friday had no signal in southern Florida. Maybe that played a factor..it worked last year but typically waited 3 days without logging in.ย

    That's 3$ gained, and zero money into TSB. I love it. And, I'm sure you had fun too, which is a big plus

    I do miss getting my ass handed to me game after game brother when you would start that POTM pitcher against me a few years back ๐Ÿ˜ฅ. But other than that I got a new phone and haven't even downloaded the app to it so I'm pretty sure I'm done for this year at least (not that I even started).

    I've played pretty much every day since April of last year since our live games got shut down. Switched from NLHE to Omaha HI/LO though since Hold'em is too boring for me online. Now all the tappers complaining about rigged box odds should play a game or two on these sites and see how rigged THEY are. All action hands pretty much 80% of the time to keep you in the hand. Can't wait for WSOPC to go back live again. Used to take a 3 hour drive to Cherokee NC 3 times a year for it ๐Ÿ™„ย

    YUP. All action hands but I don't mind the sites being "rigged" since when you realize it then you just need to play conservatively and make sure you win bigger pots than the ones you lose. If I flop a set of aces with two suited connectors on the board then I pretty much know I'm gonna get rivered with a straight or flush ๐Ÿคจย
