    Today is the opening day of the MLB and I have just notice that Draftkings is rolling out a new season long promo called big league achievements rewarding players for playing everyday and entering different types of contest. It is an interesting way to get people to play and I am really curious to know what the requirements are to get level 8 in some of the categories that they are offering 333,333 extra FPP’s when you get there. It won’t change what I play this season but since I played every day last year I should be pick up many of these without doing anything extra so I can’t complain.

    EDIT : Contest running tonight for the leagues promotion to get the extra 2250 FPP’s (4/13)

    With the Draftkings new MLB big league achievements one of the ways to earn bonus FPP’s is playing in league contests. The level 8 achievement is to play in a 100 person league contest which if you participate you will clear all levels at once and get up up 2250 FPP’s if you still have all 8 levels available. 2250 FPP’s is worth $4 in tickets and gets you an entry to the Gold freeroll for earning 2000+ for the month of April.

    Since you can only get this bonus once per season tonight might be the last chance to clear all 8 levels for the max FPP’s as these will be harder to fill once most people already have got this bonus.

    Post your DK username below if you want to get in and I will send an invite.

    What are the daily private tournaments?

  • kwdamp

    They were doing a daily 20 person for those that wanted the daily “bonus” 100 FPP which you receive every day you meet the following 4 criteria:

    Enter any paid MLB contest

    Enter at least 3 lineups into any paid MLB contest

    Play in a paid private MLB contest

    Play more than 1 paid MLB game style*

  • Orangeflow

    I see what is happening for anyone wondering in the league as to why they get 5 invites a day.

    When you set a tourney for the daily bonus……on that final details page about your tourney you are setting at the bottom says “send to all league members” Uncheck that! Then all the league members wont get slammed with invites to tournaments all day!

    Hope this helps…

    Think we could get a private contest with a different game style (Pick’Em, Arcade or Showdown)? If so that covers 15 fpps for private contest, 20 fpps for more than one gamestyle, and 100 fpps for completing all 4 daily tasks (assuming user plays a couple classic entries which I typically do)…

  • GMStonybrook10

    Feel free to send me an invite for a low level head to head in one of the non-classic game styles. Username is GeneMorris

    you have to also enter 3+ times into a specific contest

    not sure if has to be unique lineups

    by the way, anyone can create a contest in these leagues so feel free to create one of your own in an alternate style

    Are these achievements even possible? A few of them definitely are, but I am pretty unconvinced that anyone, even at incredible volume levels will be able to get to level 8 on the point based ones.

    I haven’t run the numbers but max entering every day should at least get you close.

    If you max enter everyday for the entire season most of the level 8 achievements are not hard to get to. To get all the categories you would have to max enter classic, arcade, showdown and pick em. So the top players probably have 300-500 unique lineups in play across all of the formats everyday with 183 or 184 days of the MLB season (depending if they have a showdown slate for the All Star game). At that level something like 50,000 homers or 500,000 strikeouts would be attained very easily sine if you played at the low end 300 lineups per day for 183 days you would only need to average 1 homer and 9 strikeouts per lineup to clear level 8.

    No your average joe has 0 shot of getting most of these level 8 awards but massive volume guys like Awesomo, Moklovin, etc. will clear all these levels with relative ease.

    I missed that you pointed out the ones you don’t think anyone would get to are the point based ones. I agree the two toughest are the Showdown and Pick em scores since those contests are smaller so you can’t always get 150 lineups in every day. However they had the levels set at 100+ points for each and within 2 weeks they are retroactively moved those down to 75+ points probably based on the data of the rate that the top volume guys were hitting this number to make sure they clear level 8. I am guessing at the old level of 100+ it would have been nearly impossible to clear both those two levels due to lack of game sizes to get in the amount of lineups needed but at 75+ some guys will clear all 88 achievements.
