In an effort to perhaps keep players from moving to the new Revolution Network setup by the former Lock Poker, Merge Network has taken drastic steps to respond to their player base’s requests to improve the network.
First Merge is fixing their lobby, as many players will agree the current lobby looks cramped and is very difficult to navigate in comparison to other sites. Merge will be adding better, cleaner looking filters for their cash games and tournaments as well as cosmetic changes for their tournament lobbies, making it easily discernible the tournament structure, the buy in and the starting chips and level jumps.
Secondly Merge Network is changing the way their in game tables look. As someone who plays currently on Merge, the tables at the moment look absolutely atrocious and were in desperate need of a revamp. The new tables look much cleaner which will give Merge players a far better playing experience.
Finally, and most importantly, in order to combat Lock Poker’s new 36% dealt rakeback Merge Network will offer rakeback accounts to all it’s players at 35%. At this point in time I am not sure if it will be dealt or contributed rakeback. This huge change will certain help keeping current players as the current VIP system Merge has in place is not very good for low volume players.
