I am not going trying to pick on FantasyDraft because they are not the only site not addressing this stuff, but this did just happen on their site in a tournament I was playing so I wanted to get a discussing going about.
I am a casual player. I like to play. I do okay.
Yesterday, I registered for a NHL/20 man/triple up on FantasyDraft. (9 game NHL slate)
This is not a bad beat story, I finished with the most points
So there were 20 players and seven of those players had the exact same lineup, in the exact same order!
I understand that people sell lineups now, and this is common, but no site has addressed a solution yet, or even addressed that it’s an issue.
As a casual player, this is taking the fun out of it for me.
here is the results (you will notice that two of the players at 105pts rather than 106pts, this is only because they played the wrong Staal brother.
Let me know what you guys think about this
Lets limit the amount of times a lineup can be entered in a given tournament.
I think it would depend on what kind of game it was (GPP or Cash), but setting a limit of around 10%-20% of the same lineup in a any given game seems more than fair.
If a user attempts to enter the same lineup after the max has been reached, a message like: “this lineup has been maxed out for this tournament, please adjust your lineup and resubmit” will be shown.
This will kill the industry in the long run IMO. Casual players don’t want to feel like they are getting hustled by sharks, just like they don’t want to feel like they are getting hustled at the poker tournament.
All feedback welcome. Looking to hear everyones thoughts.
