The Premium Charge was introduced in September 2008, and I hit the lifetime limit in 2012. As Brentford says, the goodwill disappeared at that point. When a company changes the rules retroactively, it tends to leave a sour taste. Niche sports like basketball only see in-play action from courtsiders or idiots, who soon learn that the playing field isn't level and understandably give up.
Believe it or not even politics is littered with courtsiders! These are "agents" at the election counts who have visual access to the piles of ballots and bet live on Betfair. I see it all the time, usually about an hour before the official result announced.

even WC darts this year was a sad place not so sad as nba but way worse than years ago. darts was my facourite even though i kinda discovered it pretty late in my trading journey.
You only have to look at the scoreboards on the bookies sites (which are also behind) to see how far behind live the pics are for the darts! It's not a coincidence that that particular market is now like a ghost town compared to what it used to be.
So many of these "niche" sports suffer from having pictures that are further behind in 2021 than they've ever been before (thanks to HD etc).... Even the BFLV feeds got further behind with the demise of Flash....

wit-ham, even if you don't bet enough to make Gruss worthwhile and just stick with the BF website, you still don't have to put up with a 7 or 8 seconds refresh rate. Go to "Settings", then select "Betting" - you can then use the "slider" to choose your preferred refresh rate at anything between 1 second and 15 seconds - just adjust it to 1 second.
Good info, TM! Shows how long it's been since I used the website.
