Your observations are valid to a point at the Rock. What you may not see is that there is a concentrated effort to recruit new players at our "other playing field" the Bistro. During prime time it was requested by veteran players that games be premium...mostly highstakes ... and PS....so in order to please the steadfast and yet gain new players was the advent of the BISTRO. During prime time hours guest tourneys and various formats are offered.
As far as less TD's ...on the contrair my friend....we are better staffed then ever since I've been here...but again we spread in the evenings between 2 rooms. In fact, many of our newer TD's are a direct result of the recruiting efforts in the Bistro. They wouldn't be in elite if it hadn't been for that.
As for the bonus issue. I myself "bot" 6 prem memberships in the last 2 weeks and have donated 4 to special tourneys in the last month. But .... the very nature of promoting bonus is NOT advantagous to Elite as a whole. It prolongs a guest membership which not only hurts elite but continues to perpetuate an unhappy member who is limited in the tourneys that they can join. Any member of elite can purchase with $10 or yeps a premium membership for another player. And bonus is not "given" as a stipend from the league...it come directly out of the TD's pocket.....
Ultimately, we are trying to listen to the "old" and "new" and offer what is wanted ... but the main focus is making the ROCK bigger and better than ever.
An aside to the "hiya" issue is......due to the recent attacks on messenger and all the new shirts.....As the Rock grows...there are players missed in the "hiya" cuz messenger lists are being rebuilt and if you don't appear in "blue" it's sometimes hard to sift thru the entries. You know I will always great ya with a coke and a hiya bobby = )! But due to so many new faces and new shirts....don't disregard as "rude"....but merely an oversight!
Spady is growing daily and bigger and better than ever! The Rock Rocks on....and the Bistro is bringing in many new players and friends......
Smiles! and adds a big welcome back to juny--my--pooh and rons_a_lover....and smiley/stacy.....!!!!!!!!
Rock on All!
