Thanks for your replies. I know about programming and testing environments, I used to be a programmer and software tester, so I understand that not all bugs are picked up in initial testing. However, I think what frustrates most of us is that some of the changes look like they've never been tested at all; like I said, if the CC tournament creation change had been tested I'm sure the bug would have come up immediately.
With regards the showdown forfeit bug, many players have suggested many thousands of times - make it single player. I'm sure creating single player mode in coins rooms can't be that difficult a change? Making showdowns single player would eliminate the bug totally, and it would mean quicker games for those of us for whom 45 seconds is 25 seconds too long! I could play a full 9 holes in the time it takes some players to do calculations... and they still then play a crap shot!
And finally, I noticed you side-stepped my second paragraph, this one:
Also, I see tournament winnings are now shown as
credits rather than dollars; after 16 years of it being shown in
dollars someone decides that it is more important to make this
unimportant and unnecessary change rather than fixing the many bugs that
exist, and have existed for a very long time?!? I know that players
probably come into the forum and ask why they can't withdraw their
winnings, but the community have always explained that they are only
credits winnings, not real dollars. That same resolution could have
easily been continued without the need to make any changes, taking
developers away from things that need to be done and long-time bugs to be fixed!
The Earnings Leaderboard is still showing winnings in dollars, so does
that mean another unnecessary change is going to be made in the next
update, taking even more developers' time away from fixing more
improtant bugs that need fixing?
Why was it so important to change dollars to credits, considering it's been like that since day 1, and leaving far more important bugs that need fixing unfixed? And like I said, you now have an inconsistency with tournament leaderboards showing winnings in credits, and the eagnings leaderboard showing winnings in dollars!
