    FanDuel is exciting to announce the launch of our FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Bracket Championship!

    We wanted to create an event that had appeal to all of our players, and we think you’ll enjoy what we have to offer for this Championship. The total prize pool is $328k and the field will consist of 64 players (one entry max to the bracket portion). All 64 players who make the final bracket are guaranteed money. Qualifiers begin today and will range from $3 and up. Our goal is to keep all qualifiers that are $25 and above to single entry. If these keep filling, then we’ll keep offering them as single entry.

    The field of 64 will play down to the final two from July 31st to August 7th. The final two players will be flown out to Las Vegas to compete for the Title and the $60,000 first prize at WFBC on August 22nd!

    You can find the full details for the contest here: https://www.fanduel.com/fbbc

    I ended up posting about this like a minute before you did, as I saw it on my Twitter feed….love the concept. I’m also a big fan of the set-up in terms of the different price points to enter in terms of single and multi-entry.

    Good stuff!

    Are you kidding me? WOW.

    As someone who has been a 99% Fanduel MLB player Ive been playing on Draftkings the past week or so and wasnt even going to bother with Fanduel the rest of the season.

    This made me redeposit. We’ll see how it goes.

    single entry as in you can only qualify for the field of 64 once?

    Correct. Also trying to run as many single-entry Qs as we can if they are filling.

    To highlight a big point: You can only gain one entry into the bracket. If someone wins more than one entry on the same night, then they are given cash value. Please refer to the terms for rules on entering after having won a Q.

    Just saying usually when a multi-million dollar company sets a goal there customers like to see it last more that 1 day, seems like a pretty classic fd overreaction i must say, that said cool idea poor execution thus far,http://prntscr.com/7nd5xm

    To be fair leafs 93 hates FD… Read any of his posts on here so take it for what it’s worth…DK runs same tourney he would be on here singing their praises…seriously read any of his posts…I think a month ago leafs93 wrote a novel saying how FD will be gone in 3 years…..when the same person rips on a site continuously and someone like me notices and remembers the person who does it it’s time to stop whining…

    In case you all thought I’m full of BS click on his name and read his novel from May 31st….

    for one its not like im not playing in the contest in question and frankly I play a fair amount of volume there nightly and feel these message boards are a much more effective tactic of having your opinion heard than the generic responses you get from tier 1 fd support reps, so i really dont give a fuck what the non-fd and rg reps think.

    2nd If it wasnt for dillnglersfours OP ensuring that FD would keep the buyins 25$ and above single entry for as long as possible i probably wouldnt have played a top heavy contest like that in the first place, and was not expecting them to bail on the $25 after one night when there was also a super monster and 100$ wfbc Q but hey thats just me.

    Well if you only wanted to play a $25 single entry qualifier why would you join a game that says it right in lobby it’s multi entry?? It’s not like they add the M for multi entry after you joined…

    my comments are in regards to day #1’s 25$ Q being single entry with a message from a fd rep saying they are committed to keeping it single entry for as long as possible and having “as long as possible” = 1 day as tomorrows 25$ Q is multi entry and the 100$ single entry is now 300$ leaving me a single entry player priced up to the edge of being uncomfortable / having to cut a contest i would normally play out or not attempting to Q when based on dinglers OP i decided i was going to try to Q in the 25-100$ single entry Qs every slate they are offered. what im getting at is some consistency would be nice every once in a while.

  • leafs93

    25$ single entry – https://www.fanduel.com/contest/13491230/scoring/lineup/193221129/ 3$ multi entry https://www.fanduel.com/contest/13490997/scoring/lineup/193218955/ score to win atm surprisingly similar.

    I think Leafs has a point here. If a site specifically mentions that they are going to try and keep it single-entry at a certain price level, and then 1 day later changes course, I don’t think that is right. I hope Dillinger or someone on Fanduel can address this.

    Since this is a single-entry “final”, one suggestion I would have is to at least keep the multi-entries in qualifiers down. 30 seems to be a bit high: Why not try something like 5 max, even at the lower price levels. I think it’s going to be hard for a lot of people to try these things out if they notice someone running 30 entries into it. I understand there still may be a need for multi-entries, especially at the lower levels. But, can that be reduced at least?

    Ideally, we would like to keep the $25 at single-entry, but yesterday’s did not fill, so we opted to up the entries to 5 max. We will adjust where necessary in an effort to find a balance between filling contests, and making a contest single-entry.

  • TeamSwish412

    Its just funny how they say one thing, which is qualifiers as single entry, and then after one day, change it.

    I was going to play in the qualifiers, but not anymore

    Thank you for a response, and I certainly understand the reasoning. However, it was announced yesterday, so many people may not have known about it. I hope that FanDuel will try this again as single-entry, now that people are aware of his promotion, and it fills.

    The contest was posted after 2 o’clock…if it was up all day i am sure it would have filled as single entry.

    So a sample size of ONE NIGHT was all this idea was given, good to know i will also no longer be trying to qualify and next time mike trout and miguel cabrera go 0-5 they should probably be sent down to triple A.

    A contest that was posted late with no real advertising didnt fill and you blame it on your customers and change the set up after one day? No one thought the poor planning by Fanduel is maybe why it didnt fill?
