    BuzzDraft is dead, long live FanThrowDown?

    So FanThrowDown bought BuzzDraft and it seems that they are consolidating operations to FTD. More details and access to BD funds to come according to the BD webpage.

    It will be interesting to see if there is more site consolidation to come.

    I am a little more then disappointed that we players were not informed in some fashion of the coming changes.
    I also had over $100 in points alone to be cashed in. What happens to this money? Will that be transfered as well as my balance there? Might seem like a small amount to some but when you are disabled a small amount can mean the world. It will also help ease my losses in learning to master a new site.

    Will I also be allowed to see what happened in my contests last night as I fell asleep early for the first time in 2 years? I had many games on the board and Im not even sure how I placed. Did I win? What should my balance be? I know what it was as of when i fell asleep but thats about it.
    I havnt heard from Bryan yet, I hope he posts here to explain a few things and answer these type of questions.

    For all its flaws and short comings, I was one of Buzzdrafts biggest supporter over the last few months and will miss it greatly.

    I thank Bryan for not simply closing up shop and vanishing as so many other sites have and wish him luck in his future endevours.

    I do feel we as the last of the users that supported him are due at least a few answers.

    So far FTD is handling things well. They have already replied to me in both chat and via email.
    They said that players balances should be transferred over by the end of today and that they are working with Bryan on the points issue but should be honoring them as well. Hopefully by weeks end. Heck, I dont care if its even “playthrough or bonus money” As long as I can at least put it in play since I earned every penny of them.

    It is shocking that a site who couldnt process payouts within 3 days, never updated player salaries, had a web site that any Bay Area middle school kid could have designed, and had terrible customer service couldnt survive. Draftteam and Double Up are the two newest sites to come along and they are even more clueless and just plain dumb than buzzdraft, exchange a couple emails with the dudes who run DT and DU and it is very clear these guys have no idea about the industry. This is a tough environment, if any new dfs sites which to enter you better come hard with at least a million in initial backing and I would say you probably need far more than that.

    I had no issues with Buzzdraft. Granted I’m a pretty relaxed person. When I cashed out I knew it was coming so I didn’t stress on that.

    I was however aiming for that beer pong table for their rewards points. Plus there goes a PGA provider. Good thing Fantasy Feud just went live with theirs.

    Depending on the cost of the acquisition, this is a shrewd move on the part of FTD. Played a little on BD after the “Big One” and thought it was alright and I’ll give FTD a shot now that I wouldn’t have given otherwise.
    The reason I didn’t play more at BD is because in this industry you really have to come in and knock the sox off players. They were good, but not knock the sox off. Lets see what FTD has.

    Just want to say I enjoyed playing on BuzzDraft and will miss it. Was planning on starting play on FTD soon, this will quicken that.

    Players cash should start to show up at this point. I got mine about 40 minutes ago. If you havnt received yours yet, try refreshing as mine did not show until i did.
    my balance seems to be correct and they even have last nights wins included. All in all this has been about as smooth a transition as could be expected.

    Hey guys,

    Misfit I obviously would have loved to tell people but in the spirit of the deal I was obligated to remain silent until everything was finalized. I’ve really enjoyed working with all of you over the last 1.5 years and it’s been an incredible learning experience. Expect an email from me tonight or tomorrow summing up my thoughts on all of it and personally thanking a few of you for all that you have done. If you have any questions that FTD hasn’t been able to answer or have trouble with anything please feel free to reach out to me but they’ve been fantastic throughout this whole thing and I know all of you will be very well taken care of. As you can imagine it has been an incredibly busy day so I may not be around to respond instantly to everything here but will do my best to assist in all aspects of the transition as possible.

    Thanks again for everything, and I hope to still talk to many of you often.

    -Bryan

    I just got the remaining balance left on my buzz transferred over. Did a large cash out over a week ago that I never received. Can someone from buzz ( Bryan) or ftd let me know what I need to do to get my cash. Assuming buzz’ support is down and thats why no response. Buzz was awesome btw. Sad to see it go

    So glad I left buzzdraft when I did I gave it a run for a few week it just seemed like that site was terribly ran even though Bryan seemed to do what he could for us. Hated waiting after hours to get paid, payouts were terrible, losing points after the games were over to late changes the site didn’t seem like it had much going for them oh noes! FD, DK, FTD seem like the places to go along with DD even tho I don’t play there.

    Very classy of you to respond to everyone so quick and get this deal done with all the players funds taken care of the same day of shutdown. I didn’t play a ton at buzz, but I have all the respect in the world for you with the way you handled this.

  • FrancisBooth
