no this isn't another thread about the rankings and when will the leaderboard be updated etc, too many of them already.

i want to ask other players their opinions as to whether it really is a skill league anymore?
the games now are lucky if you get 400 players of which over half sit out in order to boost their points on the leaderboard, the ones that do actually play them half are all in or fold players and the rest try to play poker but i guess with little success owing to the other half of people playing (all in or fold) when you do get on a table with people trying to play because you are short handed you are getting called on your raises by alot less desirable hands, eg. before you raise up with AK, AQ, AJ and weak aces would muck now they 3 bet you and hit the 2 pair, more players are calling raises with real bad cards because they are suited, i feel that now it is no longer a SKILL league it is more of a donkfest.

i read another thread about the americans being able to play it if PS/PSO dropped the cash prizes, lets get that done for next month, drop all the cash from the league, instead offer discounts/prizes from the PS store, baseball caps, hoodies, books etc.

we need to have it back to where people are trying to play and improve their game and not just donk about.

You nailed it right on the head - the pso is worse then it ever was because of the reasons
you stated. Before the US players left, it seemed to me at least most of the donks went
out early enough so if you still managed to be in you could actually enjoy a good game.
As I'm sure other players stated while playing, how the heck can they learn when we now
have so many playing the exact opposite of what we learned in the quiz's etc. sure bluffing
is an option but all in and raising with garbage defeats the entire purpose of the league.

I'd bet he farm if they changed the prize structure to non cash we'd see a lot of these
people drop out.

Look lets face it PSO have no intention of updating the league standings, they will just sit it out Ostrich style until the end of the month then announce the suspension of the league, followed by "watch out for a NEW updated league comong soon" Total B,S, as the remaining players are prob wasting time playing meaningless games for the last two weeks of the month.
