Not that its a concern to the geniuses occupying the C suite at DK, but I’m making my small voice heard with my volume this week. It’d be nice if others in the industry with a louder voice would take a stand as well.
This week is absolutely ridiculous in regards to pricing. Even more so than normal as they continue to outdo themselves. It comes as no surprise that a company that has done so poorly in growing the industry over the last 2+ years, continues to shit the bed when opportunity presents itself. Anyone with an IQ above 34 could see that the largest opportunity for growth in the major offerings would be golf.
Why continue to give shit pricing thus ruining both the game and enjoyment aspects? Why continue to suck the life out of the avg player by giving them a near zero shot at being profitable with the terrible tournament payout structures?
CONSISTENCY in pricing. Randomly making MAJOR odds vs salary mistakes is a joke. It’s clear that there’s no set rhyme or reason much less a decent algorithm. It leads to making the game all about taking incredibly sub optimal plays, in order to be optimal. Obviously game theory plays a large role but this pricing makes it all about game theory and near zero about accurate projections.
Make the payout structure something along the lines of 10-15% to first and tapered down to a total payout of max 15-20% of the field. I get it that the numbers show its better to rake players back and forth by these ridiculous min cashes, but at least give options for those of us who are conscious of the minutia. I know this has been hammered over and over for years but the average person needs to understand the importance. For those that do, give us a large $33 or $333 with a decent payout structure and just see how well its received. Just once. Try it.
