    Why are auto invites sent to nonsubs who are unable to join?

    Is this a ploy to get them to subscribe?

    The original message I received regarding the formation of clubs said that non-subs would be able to play in tournaments. They came advertising this feature to us! We (non-subs) did not ask for clubs to be created so as that we could play tounaments. It is the site creators that created them and advertised the non-subs would be able to play them. This is where a large part of the disappointed people are coming from.

    Can imagine..

    So that's why I asked "Why are you still in any Club now then"?

    PS: It were not just the "non-subs" who did not ask for it.. NOBODY asked for it..

    I'm not I left all three clubs that I joined as they started tounaments for subs only. I did not need the spam that came with the clubs either.

    To the best of my knowledge, this has never been said.

    For example, from the original consultation thread :

    Thread 88737 - page 12


    Rated games/tables - done
    ...
    Club Forums - incoming
    Club tournament (not for non-subs) - incoming

    Would it be possible for club administrators to have one tournament a month, or even just a one-off trial tournament, for non subs. Just to give them a taste of what they are missing by not subscribing.

    I reckon we could hook in a few people this way.

    Tournament runs out, join new club, continue for years playing unlimited games for free.

    My post is responding to another user. It is an explanation of why their idea will probably not be instituted.

    It appeared to me that his idea was for the non-subs to have one tournament they could go into for the experience....Not an unlimited amount of tournaments they would be able to play in.

    I did notice that you were responding to another user. I was responding to your response

    What is to stop a non sub from joining countless clubs to take advantage of these non sub tournaments?

    There could be countless clubs to join... just move on to another club and keep entering free tournaments.

    How are you reading the post? Nothing was said about non subs, it was said about club leaders.
