If you are thinking about putting your money into Carbon Poker or any of skins created by Merge Network, Im gonna give you some reasons why it is a really bad idea.
1. Withdrawals-u can wait really long time before u get your money, they had big problems with WD last year (my personal record was 3,5 month of waiting for my cash!), now its better but still u can wait a month or maybe even more. Bank wire, check is the only WD options, sometimes they offer Skrill or Bitcoin, but only when they want it. Every bank wire or check WD will cost u a 3% fee, and even a 5% if they will let you use Skrill.
2. Traffic at this moment is really bad, after their cash out problems a lot of people leave this network. They even removed a "clock" which inform people about current number of players on the site.
3. They make a lot of difficulties to a regular players: on SnG u cant see a current opened tournments (if you are not playing in them), u cant make a table selection, because the names of the players registered are hidden. U cant make notes about the players, or tag them. Ante begings on 1st level, which forces you to play more agressive.
On cash games, there was a big changes with the last update (of course for worst). Its impossible now to make a table selection or even observe a table! U just started the game by choosing stakes, clicking "start playing" and then u get randomly assigned to one of the tables.
4. Promotions- there is no longer a loyality program on this network. They have welcome bonuses but it is so riddiculous that if you even finish it you will propably get about 5% rakeback from it maybe even less.
They have also Leaderboards on SnG and cash games. But to be honest on cash games the prizes are just pathetic, and on SnG there is just 5 places paid (on four different categories) and its always the same players occupying at least 1st and 2nd place, playing 24h/day, 7days in a week what is really shady.
5. Support- like they do with many other features, they deleted live chat. You can only contact them with e-mail and maybe even get an answer if u would be lucky :)
6. Sites like sharkscope, pokerprolabs etc. are no longer tracking players from Merge Network.
7 There is some problems with Hand History on Carbon Poker client. Im not sure if other players also expirienced this, but when I was multitabling and trying to open Hand History, my system heavily slows down and sometimes even client crashed. I've experienced this on two different PCs.

Congratulations and thank you very much if you read my opinion :) I played a lot on Merge and every single year situation were gettin worst and worst, I was always a winning player, but as I wrote before they're trying to make things harder and more complicated to players like me so I just took my money and say them Good Bye :)
