    I have not seen the actual rules for this contest and it’s not posted in the Promo Section. Huge problems could arise from this event. 8 seats with only 4 events to go. What about ties? Can someone win more than 1 seat??? etc etc…

    My guess is that they’ll have a $1K, $300 and $33 Q next week so that if ties come up, they still have 2 weeks to settle it.

  • zelda3024

    I think so but even if they have 3 the next contest they only have 1 thus far for this coming event. That would still leave 4 seats available for the last 2 weeks. So to have a safe cushion they should of had 4 this week and 4 next week with two weeks to go before NY in case of ties. Having 4 seats going at it with only 1 week to go is a bit of a risk.

    The new scoring with 6 fighters is great but you never know there could still be a ton of ties.

    rules have been posted. Looks like you can only get 1 seat. Payout structure:
    1ST…………………$10,000
    2ND…………………$7,000
    3RD…………………$5,000
    4TH…………………$3,000
    5TH…………………$2,000
    6TH- 8TH…………..$3,000

    TIEBREAKERS
    If one or more DraftKings Players tie for a Qualifying place in a “Battle for New York” Qualifier, there will be a playoff contest between the tied DraftKings Players, as solely determined by DraftKings, to determine the winner.

    MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES
    Once a player has accumulated 1 entry to the Battle for New York Contest they are no longer allowed to win additional entries. If a player wins multiple qualifier contests that were live at the time their 1st entry was accumulated, they will receive the cash value of their additional qualifiers. DraftKings will rerun those additional qualifiers.

    Nice I wish they would have did this for the Gotham… Hopefully they are learning from some mistakes they made….

    One thing is sort of boggling DK ended it’s sponsorship with the UFC because it was only a 1 year deal. That does not mean in the future they will not strike up another deal some where down the line. The doors is always open.

    This late of an entry tourney and I am sure many others have asked DK please one day make a live tourney. I added it in my survey plus have wrote to them a few times to please do so.

    I am also sure DK reads this forum all the time… I am so happy they added a live tourney though it came as a shock being so so late.

    But then I thought this is a great way for them to represent DK in New York City with players from their site and it does not cost them a dime to do so:) With New York on the fence about DFS having 8 Representatives in front of 18,100 live fans and a possible 2 million subscriptions to the PPV. This is just plain Genius… Advertising is everything…

  • zelda3024

    I’m also sort of curious and I will email DK and see how this would work.

    Lets say the last week of actual tourney’s someone wins three seats the rules clearly state you can win one but if you do not have a seat and they run 4 tourneys you can play in them all and get cash for the other 3 seats and those seats go back up for grabs. But there would be no tourneys left…. So what would they do then?

    There is only 4 tourneys left to go I understand they think the new scoring will help big time but only time will be the tale of the tape. Actually there are 3 events to go because you can’t really run events the week before 205 and assume they will be no tie breakers… Besides winners are going to want to make sure there flight plans are set up at least a few weeks in advance I would think..

    I sure hope this goes off without a hitch…

    I doubt they care too much about us having to make travel arrangements on short notice when you get $1,000 to get there

    Very true. That is the least of there problems if things do not go off as they have planned. I sent them a email just letting them know they really only have three weeks to fill the 8 spots because they can not run tourneys the last week due to if a tie breaker does happen. Or someone wins multi entries because only 1 seat can be awarded per person.

    Congrats on the Win……

  • zelda3024

    I still have no clue how they plan on pulling this event off. They have two qualifier events this week. one winner thus far. 8 seats total. 3 total winners will be crowned with one week to go. That means they have to have 5 qualifiers for the last event next week which starts at 3:45 am which means most likely not as many last minute entries.

    I guess they could run qualifiers also the week before 205 but that is a huge risky move seeing if there are ties they are out of events to break a tie.

    If that happens DK has to award trips to both players who tied… I guess they could write it off as an advertising expense.

    Anyone else showing prize listed as $0 for the NY qualifiers? Could just be my DK app on my phone (been crashing a lot).

    When I won the Hanging with Frank Contest (December 2015), both DK & The UFC made the experience first class all the way, I had a message waiting for me on my phone from DK the next morning. They advised that a rep from the UFC would be contacting me directly with information for the hotel in Orlando and the entire itinerary. Also, DK sent some hats & apparel. The $1,000 for airfare immediately appeared as a credit in my DK account. I had accumulated enough Hertz points that I decided to save the $1,000 and make it a road trip to Florida +-20-hours. Not something that I will likely take on again. The rep from the UFC (who I still trade emails with today) checked in with me several times during the trip and even pushed back dinner 30-minutes due to us running late.

    I wrote an entire piece on the experience, so I won’t go into details, other to say that it was a great experience and I would expect that this one will be as well. looking forward to winning one of these qualifiers, so hope to see you there =:)

  • zelda3024

    That would be awesome.. Just the experience alone is a trip of a lifetime. I can see all those involved DK/ UFC being real good to the people who win.. This is their business they know the value and worth of those who have an incredible experience.

    I do see now that they will fill some spots through football contests.

    +1 I’ve been lucky enough to win DK experiences a few times. I was very pleasantly surprised every single one of them. I will definitely be firing away in these!
