Our players have requested a single game format since we started. It is no secret that once we launched Showdown during NBA All Star Weekend, this game type has quickly grown in popularity.
Some customers have also requested an additional strategy component, that is why we’ve been working to develop a new Showdown variant.
The key feature of Showdown: Captain Mode is the addition of the Captain position, which costs 1.5x the salary but also earns 1.5x points. The addition of the Captain position in your roster will increase possible lineup combinations while also adding this new element of strategy.
Here’s what you should know:
- Private $5 entry, $10K prize pool Contest (link)
- Rules & Scoring (link)
- Rosters will include one (1) Captain and (5) Utility
- Captain salaries will cost 1.5X, but you also earn 1.5X in fantasy points
- Scoring is the same as existing/classic Showdown
We will follow up with players for feedback after the beta contest is complete, or drop us a note here in this thread.
Have fun playing Captain Mode RotoGrinders!
