    Back to charging rake? This is very disappointing.

    dont like monkey knife fight plus what good is 100$ when there not avialable in lot of states including mine!

    I’m confused as to why we have to do this by noon on Monday.

    Why is NFL gone by noon Monday? Season isn’t for another few days after.

    This smells bad.

    just received my ticket. It must be used by 9/21. I suspect that they are somehow carrying it as an open liability for the transfers and would like to get their accounting straightened out as quickly as possible. From a business standpoint, it makes sense.

    I found that to be an advantage on FantasyDraft. All of the ownership tended to coalesce around the same plays. Small time player or not, you could get more leverage by playing a catcher because no one else was. Same in NFL with the double flex. The popular RBs were always mega chalk because you could roster up to 4 RBs. Great way to get leverage by fading a popular RB or by playing a 4-WR lineup. I liked that they tried to be a little different from the pack, but not so different that it required learning an entirely new game.

    I actually tried this approach, and it doesn’t work out for the most part. Unless the low owned catcher hits a double dong it wouldn’t make much of a difference.

    NBA was especially hard there because you can fit in a lot of studs and good plays while taking minimal risks.

    I personally never found any discernible edge or advantage in playing there. The odds of winning are just as high, low rake only really matters if you place high. They were a poor man’s Yahoo DFS. They sealed their own fate when they cancelled an entire slate recently without any real explanation.

    A $100 bet on Monkey Knife Fight. I threw mine into a 3X more or less for a full season long for Kyler Murry and Matt Ryan passing yards. A $10 deposit for a chance to win $300 is worth the death of Fantasy Draft.

    I used my ticket on this exact same bet

  • marker0357

    MKF newbie…will there by individual football game bets posted as well? I’m not too sure how this works. The season long seems pretty straight-forward.

  • marker0357

    how do you use a ticket? When do you select using a ticket versus cash?

  • phishyd

    I tried this morning to transfer over from fantasydraft and it says the FANDRAFT2020 doesnt work for me. Frustrating

    Available tickets can be viewed from your “My Account” Screen on a web browser (not currently available on our fantasy app). Enter the contest as you normally would and submit your entry. If you have a ticket available for that contest, you will be asked if you would like to use it at time of contest submission.

    Thanks Yis. Figured it out. Hoping we see some week 1 NFL contests soon and not just year-long.

  • yisman

    Same here, my ticket said good until 9/21 got an email saying I was downgraded to a $50 ticket now, other wise I would have used it earlier.

    yes, if it was expiring today, it should’ve been listed 9/7 expiration

    We got ripped off

    Tremendous marketing strategy to try and convince people like myself who were on the fence on whether to join their site. Congrats to them as they made their decision for me. No integrity, no support.

    How can anyone be surprised that a deal for a company that was shaky is shaky itself? The “quick you better transfer your funds” strategy tells you that MNF stinks as well.

  • MrFantasy

    Transferred over my balance which was a few bucks, figured I’d throw $25 on MKF and get the $100 ticket. They removed the $100 ticket for a $50 one. How scummy is that?

    Apologies for the confusion with our transfer promo, per the transfer landing page all Full Season tickets were to expire at 12 ET on 9/7 as that was the last day MKF was running Full Season contests. These tickets were not eligible for weekly and daily contests which is why they were expired when Full Season was no longer available. We granted a $50 ticket for Week 1 as a courtesy to anyone who had their ticket expire. For anyone whose ticket incorrectly said 9/21, please email our support team and they will work with you to resolve the issue and rectify the situation.

    I got the e-mail Sunday from fantasydraft to transfer my funds to monkeyknifefight.

    I did it yesterday morning because I was insanely busy on Sunday and they confiscated my ticket pretty much immediately, well before my funds were even transferred over.

    Not much of a turnaround to use my ticket.

    I only transferred my funds so I could get this ticket.

    I also don’t understand why, if the season is beginning Thursday night, all picks are removed Monday at noon.

  • blabbles

    Is there some sort of csv download that would provide the contest data (perhaps of just one type per file?) in one place rather than skipping around? I’d like to have the opportunity to, for example see any “fantasy points” options that stick out.

    BTW, I initiated my FDrft cashout just a couple hours ago and it’s now in my MKF account, so that seems to be working smoothly.

  • hcassidy

    I just withdrew over $2250 as MKF not available in my state of Ohio. So their loss for not having ducks in a row and getting license to operate in every state FantasyDraft did before they decided to buy them out. Had to take it via Paypal which I normally do and they told me 24-48 hours on the withdrawal but could take up to 2 weeks. WTF!!!

  • curt777

    So are they not offering the kinds of fantasy contests that Fantasy Draft had?
