Hey was just wondering if they are actually allowed to do that???

Since the abcence of US players now they have reposted that the Turbo Takedown is a $750,000 gtd now instead of the usual $1,000,000...
Can they change the gtd especially after it has been posted and listed to register all month long??

What do you guys think?

I guess they can.

I agree though, they should not be able to adjust anything people had already spent some of their bankroll/fpps satelliting into.

They lowered the guarantees of the Sunday tournies too...

The Million's back down to a Million $$ guarantee.

The Storm went from $300,000 to $200,000.

Yeah I really don't mind that they adjust the tournies. They have to in order to survive this. Having said that, I do understand why people who have invested their time and money trying to get in to tournies that were "guaranteed" would be a tad pissed. Esp being as turbo is a monthly event, not just one of the weekly ones.

I definitely understand the frustration.

Just pointing out that they probably went through and made wholesale changes to the guarantee.

It was bound to happen given the loss of revenue that I'm sure is occurring.

But yes, I do see why people would be upset by it.

Its in the terms and conditions that they can change the guaranteed prize in tournies at any time without recourse.

They are just having to reorganise the business model because of loss of US players and revenue.

They are a business not a charity so this was to be expected unfortunately.

Just so you all know, the TT is being replaced come next month. There will be no more monthly TT. Apparently it's being replaced by a different FPP game once every three months.
