    These guys run a great product! However, they have been overlaying big time, and I’m afraid they are going to scale back big time if the current trend continues. Can we support this site?? If not, we are stuck with two giants who don’t give a shit about us. Fantasy Draft offers rake free h2h! That’s huge for you cash guys!!! Its not filled with sharks either! They are also the one site that doesn’t offer late swap. As a busy dad, that’s a plus for me. All I read on this site are people bitching about FD and DK. Give these guys a shot!

    Obviously a very minor complaint, but I don’t need an email telling me I won $0.90 on $10.00 worth of entries and I should spike my laptop and take a victory lap for it.

    The fact that one player can take all the H2H games is super annoying. I’ll play anyone but would much rather play more than one opponent. There should be a limit.

    We are working on a way to address this. There will be a fix but it is going to take a little bit of time to be released.

    The fact that you guys are addressing it is huge and much appreciated. Love the product and for now I will continue to be selective in my H2H’s.

    You can adjust this in your account settings.

    Thanks but I don’t want to turn off emails for contests I’m invited to.

    People like to see what they have won but we should probably add a threshold.

  • yisman

    I have it as well but I just accept it. All the sites are like this because they don’t differentiate it. If you’re getting money returned to your account, that gets treated like any other “win”.

    Ideally I’d like it to be for when I actually turn a profit but I don’t think they’re going to be able to program that.

    Think there should be a staking limit for example , you’re average tourney entry the previous week on a sport

    When is the Android app coming?

    Can you please make the payout structure in your $25 MLB gpp consistent.

    The $10k pays $1.5k to first, yet the $12k pays $1.25k to first

    The $4k pays $600 to first, yet the $5k pays $500 to first

    This is super annoying when playing on your site on a consistent basis, please pick one or the other.

  • LagunaDude

    Yes we should support this site – especially since they way they treated Aces players. I’m playing there regularly but I think they need to get some more sophisticated contests. For example, in MLB just picking 2P, 3 IF and 3 OF isn’t good. It would be nice if they could do all the positions. Same with NBA – 3G, 3F and 2 U would be better if you had PG, SG, SF, PF, C, 2U or something like that.

    Per usual, when I look at the lobby of FantasyDraft this morning, I see that every MLB rake-free H2H from $2,000 to $5 is reserved by one of two guys. Apparently, we can only play one of these two guys if we want to play rake free between $2k and $5.

    Am I being a “jag” if I join every contest from $150 down to $5 and play these guys in every contest they’ve reserved? If I did that, I think that it would open up rake-free contests for everyone else.

  • cjstetzer

    even the 25 cent 1$ 2$ are being saturated by the same guys every day…such a turn off

  • yisman

    should perhaps be a limit on how many rake-free contests a member can join per day or something

    obviously fantasydraft is limiting them so since they’re scarce, they should not let a few hog all of them

    100% agree. This is the most aggravating thing about FantasyDraft.

    I’m happy to see that I’m not the only person annoyed with the rake free H2H shenannigans. However, if you check now, you should see that the FantasyDraft lobby has a bunch of open rake free H2H’s right now. I scooped all the rake free H2H’s from $75 down to $5, which should open things up for everyone else.

    This may backfire terribly if/when I lose all these matchups, but maybe these guys will get the hint if one guy takes all their action.

  • stv1313

    Ha ha. Now I see that one of the guys went in and already created a bunch of new rake free H2H’s. Good times!

  • yisman

    LOL. Classic.

    We will be adding a H2H player block and the ability to create your own rake free contests soon.

    That should open them up to everyone who wants to play!

    No eta yet but we are working to get it out in the next month or so.

    I’m playing and I will certainly continue doing so; however I’m not really happy with the variety of contests offered… I only play GPPs and I have been doing this for 10 years.. there are many others who do not play H2Hs and 50/50s… excluding the $25 small size GPPs, offering only $1 and $5 multi entry tournaments seems not enough… these have been the only options every single night for NBA and NHL… I see the single entry $1 and $5 for MLB now… why the same is not offered for PGA?!… I may be wrong or missing something but I don’t see why the site doesn’t try small size $1, $2, $5 and $10 tournaments?!… start with 20 or 50 entries if they are filled increase to 100 etc… it doesn’t seem the potential overlay is an issue because there is quite often an overlay now in the $1 and $5 multi entry tournaments… I realize that is not a lot of money but imho that should attract more people… in addition when a tournament fills is it so difficult to quickly put a new one with a smaller size?… FD and DK are constantly doing it with their huge GPPs and I don’t see why FD is not doing it on a smaller scale… I think Yahoo is quite successful at that and they not only offer a bunch of single entry tournaments at all entry levels (in fact their single entry GPPs variety is even bigger than FD and DK) but they are also quickly adding new contests when there is enough time before starts…

    By “player block” I assume you mean the ability to block certain players from entering you h2h? Will you also be adding the option to only allow a player to enter your h2h contest once instead of the same player scooping up all the h2h contest that you create? DK has this option and it works great. If I create 50 h2h contest I don’t want the same player taking all 50.

    MLB H2H is currently dying on FD/DK. I’d suggest pushing through those fixes ASAP to have a real chance of capturing cash game players from those sites. Once others see a lobby full of a variety of rake free H2H opponents, it will encourage more to join creating a virtuous cycle. Waiting 1 to 2 months for such a seemingly simple implementation would be a mistake IMO. Start with allowing the creation of rake free H2H. You could make this change today.

    This can take a bit of time to implement into the code and test. I’m sure they are working diligently on this.

  • TheTruthIsALie

    I contacted them months ago and expressed my disappointment that Testosterown was in literally every hockey contest, including every H2H. At that time, I was told that they were working on remedying this. Again, that was months ago, and I’m still patiently waiting for said change…
