    Realizing DK massively undervalued this tournament. They’re only gonna have 1-2 Qs per event the rest of the, more than likely 1 or 0 on some events. They could have easily sold out 3 Qs per and it’s frustrating only being able to compete in a 1K or $5 as opposed to having the option for both + $33

    Seems like a miss on their part, hopefully they are just gauging demand for something like this.

    I thought for sure they would of had another 33.00 event this last card. There is 9 UFC events through Oct 15th. Then there is 3 weeks until the Gotham Card. Not sure how many of those 3 weeks will have a fight night but DK has to keep in mind going into some of the later date UFC events if there are a bunch of tiebreakers the last thing they want to do is run out of events. They easily should be having from UFC 201 through Sept 17th event 2 to 3 Qualifiers and then use Oct 1st and Oct 15th if need be for tiebreakers only.

    No gamble no Food. Ive entered the $300 qualifier based on a good week last week. Warning: If you like your bankroll do not attempt this.

  • zelda3024

    Good News and Bad News lol. good news ourobrbos is out of seats they can win.. Bad news seeing he had two seats going into UFC 202 he was allowed to play in as many qualifiers as he liked and if he wins more than 3 seats. In which he did and has 4 seats now and also plays in a tie breaker for a 5th seat:))))
    ~
    Possible 5 seats out of 25 total I would have to give the edge to him lol…..

    That can’t be allowed…. they’d have to give him the ticket equity in cash I’d think…

    Here are the rules:

    MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES
    Once a player has accumulated 3 entries to the MMA Rumble in Gotham, they are no longer allowed to win entries in MMA Rumble in Gotham qualifier contests.

    If a user with less than 3 tickets going into the day wins multiple qualifiers in the same day that puts the user over the 3 ticket limit, the user will be allowed to keep those additional tickets for the showcase contest.

    If a user already has 3 tickets going into the day, that user is not eligible to win any more tickets or cash value and the payout for the contest shall be executed as if the user was not entered.

  • zelda3024

    He had less than 3 tickets going into the day and won two more plus he plays in a tie breaker for a 5th ticket. If he loses the 5th seat he will total out with 4 and not be allowed to play anymore. But he could end up with five seats.

    That’s stupid as hell

  • zelda3024

    Totally Agree.. What they should have done is once your three seats are claimed if you are in multi events prior to winning your 3rd seat and win more than 3 on that day is pay you for the remaining contest wins and leave the seat vacant for others to win.. It would have been easy to do it that way they simply could of just created extra events for the next coming fights and no one would have been out a thing. He still would have got his three seats plus 4k cash for each seat.

    None of us would have argued getting paid 4k and been real happy with just 3 seats. Not much thought went into allowing people to have more than just 3 seats in a 25 person event.

    In golf, a guy had 3 seats (max 6). won everything in final week – now has 13 seats out of 125

  • zelda3024

    Wow that is crazy.

  • zelda3024

    I hope the person he tied with https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/26802245 wins the heads up at least then he will be maxed out with 4.

    I also hope that in the future DK thinks about tourneys like these and also has a live MMA Event like a Major Championship. 100 seat 3 seat max which means if you win 3 seats and they will pay you for any spot over 3 and then your done playing qualifiers.

    I was curious what their explanation would be for the FGWC. I assume it’s probably the same for MMA. From DK support:

    “I apologize for any confusion however, we do have this information posted in the terms:

    “Once a Player has accumulated six (6) entries to the FGWC Contest, the Player is no longer allowed to win additional entries into the FGWC Contest from Qualifiers, except for Qualifiers that the Player is already entered in and that are live at the time the six (6) entries into the FGWC Contest were accumulated.

    EXAMPLE: Player has four (4) of the maximum six (6) entries permitted under these Contest Rules to the FGWC Contest and enters into four (4) different Qualifiers on Thursday, 7/28. After the conclusion of those Qualifiers, the DraftKings Player is found to have won all four (4) Qualifiers. Under these Contest Rules, Player is awarded eight (8) entries to the FGWC Contest and is allowed to use the eight (8) winning entries, bringing the DraftKings Player’s total from four (4) to eight (8) entries to the FGWC Contest. Player is now no longer able to enter additional Qualifiers.”

    Lets just put it this way and if it hurts someones feelings at DK so be it but many people have wondered what I am about to write…
    ~
    The way they have ran these Qualifiers has been terrible to say the least… First off I have a seat so this is not a bitter boo hoo post.
    ~
    This last event DK just decides to add a 4th Qualifier on the day of events okay fine why did it have to be a 300.00 Qualifier?? If they leave it at just the 3 Ourbarbros has no chance at 5 seats and is Maxed out at 4 which in my opinion he should have received cash equity and that seat be back up for grabs.
    ~
    10 out of 16 of these events have been $300.00 Qualifiers oh sorry 1 was a grand with 5 players. So where does DK think this event was set up for all MMA players to enjoy and have an even chance to Qualify?
    ~
    Im not bashing those by any means who have the cash to shell out that sort of money but even if you do the math now and your playing every 300.00 Qualifier chances are you could all ready be in the profit for loss column for this event. And it for sure don’t help when 1 person alone could be holding 5 seats out of 25.

    They’ve run so many $300 Qualifiers/1k Qs, probably 75% of the Qs hve been in that price range. They’re scared they won’t fill the $33 or $5 which is dumb imo. And there’s only a handful of people who are willing to enter the $300 so you see eseentially the same guys playing every time. They also don’t run nearly enough satelites to the $300 Q.

  • zelda3024

    When this first came out I was so excited the first event of it’s kind. I wanted a seat so so bad and now with the way they have handled the ratio of 5 dollar and 33 dollar Qualifiers the wind was totally lifted from my sails… I know a lot of other people feel the same way and maybe even people who spent a ton to qualify. I know some have spent 5 grand others 4 k to qualify and it can’t be so good when the potential for one person to have 5 seats in a 25 player tourney and the huge advantages that carries with it.

    10 spots are left but at what price do people want to keep investing more into a tourney that is so weighted down? that becomes a huge problem.

    Totally agree the satellites have been a joke into the 300 and so far for this coming event there are none and only one qualifier and yep it’s a 300. I sent a email asking if they planned on having a $33 qualifier for this coming event and I get a response that said in the future they plan on having a $33 one. I wrote back and said I know that because I have tickets to a $33 qualifier but what I want to know is are they planning on adding one for this coming event. I am waiting for a rep to get a response from the contest makers.

  • zelda3024

    They updated the Gotham tourney winners and ourobrbos did win his 5th seat. That is a huge advantage in MMA 25 player tournament. Only 8 seats left seven cards to go I really wished they would have capped it at a 3 seats max.
