Well, this is twice now. They are not allowing late registration for the freeroll that just started at 18:00 FT time. I don't understand this. There should either always be late registration, or none at all. We get so many pw thieves for the $100 freerolls, that US players that work during the day can't play, then they don't allow someone that gets home 5 minutes after it starts to register? Does BRM even care?
I'm getting less and less impressed with BRM every time I see something like this going on. You run the promo, get people to come to your site, contribute thru the forum and try to be a part of this site, get us to basically waste our time trying to make the leaderboard due to the donkfests that the freerolls have become, then can't even play the cheaper tourneys. NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL. Makes me think of just playing the freerolls that I can, and not even worry about being a part of the forum. God knows most of the people in the freerolls do the same thing. Most of em aren't even members of BRM.
So really, what's going on here. Does BRM care about the new members they are trying to get to sign up and take part in the forum?

So you're blaming us for you being late to a freeroll that was annonced several days ahead of when it's supposed to start?
We don't write anything about late registration when announcing the freeroll. I think the freerolls-guy is experimenting with the late registrations, one of the daily freerolls is without late reg. at all. If anything else is the case, then FTP have set them up wrong.

So the strategy with the late registration is no longer valid... ...Actually i think it's a good thing. I was kinda sick of seeing 400 people at the beginning of the freeroll and 30 mins later there are still 900 playing

Yep. Late registration kills those tourneys. You can easily end up with 2-3 times the players.

The initial sign ups go up, but the feild often doesn't get very large, as a majority of all-in freerollers will be out in 2 hands or less. I like to register late sometimes and let some of the weaker players clear out.
