    Tonight there wasnt other than the coach saying he would limit playing time on B2B’s.

    So 36 pages later, the message is still the same. A lot of lineups are dead for no reason what so ever.

  • Lord007

    Just checked my lineups and sure enough Gasol in 3 of them.. fantastic

  • osuryanf

    As stated on the other thread…. the decision for no late swap was idiotic when they made the decision, it’s idiotic tonight, and will remain idiotic throughout the whole season. The only prayer is they realize their mistake and change it back next season.

    As the old saying goes, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    DK has stole my money for the last time.

    Exactly DK has received $0 from me this basketball season and this will continue until Late Swap has been returned to its rightful owner. In the mean time FANDUEL add LATE SWAP

  • mvanderk10

    Does anyone know the reason for removal of the late swap? I only play one 3$ lineup a day but I follow my players throughout the day, enough to atleast know if they’re playing close to tip off.

    So you can enjoy your night more watching the games.

    That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard in a long time. Wow.

    The DK rep on the board said it was because feedback said players wanted to enjoy the game without having to monitor news. This is the dumbest thing ever.
    1. How enjoying is it when you have a zero and are dead from the start?
    2. The Dk rep never showed any survey results showing this “feedback”
    3. Seriously, it takes less than 5 minutes to look before the start time of the games. Don’t tell you didn’t have 3 other options already for a late scratch guy.
    4. If you have a night where you can’t look at your phone. Don’t play that Slate.
    5. Does no late swap help they guy with 3 lineups with the same guy in itor the pro who has the 150 lineups with 5% exposure?

    Please DK bring back late swap.

    Yeah I only play one small lineup a day…If you don’t want the responsibility of checking on your players then don’t play DFS. This is real real bad for players that spend hundreds or thousands of dollars every day, that would be terrible. DK shouldn’t care about the “casual player” when the sharks put in over 75% of the money accrossed the site every day.

  • osuryanf

    I’m all for caring for the casual player but this wasn’t the way to do it.. what’s next, making the max entry to each tournament 3 lineups per user?

  • osuryanf

    And for anyone saying to bring it back this season, misewell forget about that pipe dream because it simply isn’t going to happen. Best case scenario is they bring it back next year but with the sites eventually merging, who knows if they ever will bring it back.

    Good news is, I’m confident their decision will piss off more than enough people to either stop playing NBA on the site, or drastically reduce their volume and both will significantly hurt DK’s pockets, eventually leading them to regret this decision.

  • StabiloBoss10

    It continues to blow my mind that this is the new norm and they actually went ahead and took away late swap.

    NBA was once my favorite sport on Draft Kings but i haven’t played since opening night when i won a couple of tickets. I am actually very proud and relieved with myself that I haven’t paid into any tournaments.

    It proves that as much as i love DFS I’m not going to allow myself get screwed over by something that is out of my control.

    DK, admit your mistakes and quit pandering to those who are not willing to put in the work it requires to be successful.

    I don’t know. Fanduel changed the Baseball scoring after the first few weeks because it caused a ruckus.

  • japapo

    Yahoo still allows late-swap for the NBA

    Everyone get their asses on yahoo!

  • kressmi

    I’m on Yahoo, but the pricing has me all mixed up.

  • osuryanf

    Something that really grabbed my attention was —- after the first night of no late swap really effecting lineups, who did it actually hurt? The average joe? The guys who entered 3-5 lineups? Or the sharks?

    Lets take a look at the winners of the 3 main tournaments on Draftkings last night..

    $333 winner – SaahilSud for $50k (#1 overall in world) TheClone got 2nd for $25k (#7 overall in the world)

    $33 Mega Bird winner – TheClone for $100k (#7 overall in the world)

    $3 Baby Bird winner – Awesome for $25k (#9 in world)

    All guys who max enter lineups.

    First off, let me say those guys are absolute beasts and I have nothing but respect for their games. All 3 are incredibly talented.

    But in terms of this discussion, this is a really bad look for DK and something to think about moving forward.

    I think I like it. Pricing is completely different there and it’s forcing everyone to re-think.

    Isn’t it a “skill”, not a “gamble”

    @elementasrat said...

    Yep I’m pissed. Had Conley in a good looking lineup.

    This is the first late scratch of the season though but damn this stings, especially for someone like me who doesn’t create multiple lineups.

    I scored 299 on DK w Gasol…not happy…and the no late swap took less than 1 week to impact me

  • eperson911

    I don’t get it. Are they are trying to appeal to the new NFL players… who will get annoyed when they get burnt because it doesn’t happen in NFL?

  • BigRay

    so I submitted a complaint about the late swap to draft kings. Basically, someone on the thread asked why they did it and I showed DK my response in this thread. you can look back to see it. here is the canned answer I got:

    Good Evening,

    The decision to eliminate late swap was made to enhance the overall enjoyment of our NBA product, which was feedback that we heard from our players.

    Removing late swap will allow all players to enjoy the games that are being played in real time, as opposed to being glued to social media ensuring that there is no news that may impact their lineups.

    We are very excited for what our NBA product holds this season.

    Best,

    Chris
    Customer Experience Associate
    DraftKings, Inc

    I would say to try the same in registering a complaint, but I can see it is worthless.

    Yeah I got the same response as the guy did above you. I would probably rather get no response than some obvious lame copy pasta

  • topspinner

    Vote with your money…..just out of curiosity has anyone noticed a marked increase in nba action at yahoo, since they are the only ones now with late swap?
