    Hey all,

    We’re ​always looking to improve our product and we’re taking the next step by engaging on a holistic level with our user base en masse.

    How would you improve Draftpot?

    Any feedback (good or bad) is greatly appreciated.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Cheers,
    Eric

    Like the concept of Draftpot Eric, but the gameday experience is lacking – once my entries are in, I struggle to follow my teams there, and so don’t spend as much time on the site as I do on other sites. I’d love to be able to have My Lineups page show active lineups like DK does. A lineup swap capability other than Global Swap – last week I wanted to swap in Rawls in many places, but not globally (should have done globally) but took a lot of work.

    Oh – and not upgrading servers 1.5 hours before Thanksgiving :-)

    Couple thoughts here Eric, thanks for continuing to make your site great!

    1. Start Time Sort is off on list view. When sorting by “Start Time” with soonest start times at top on the NFL slates, a couple Thursday games show up, then the big Sunday Tournaments, then the rest of Thursday games under those. I would think all Thursday slates would be at top vs mixed in with Sundays.

    2. When hitting the back button, have the filters and sorting stick that you previously set. I always have to resort after every entry to find the slates I want to target.

    3. Mobile: Once in a slate to pick my players, I don’t have the ability to import a lineup. There is an export button however.

    4. I have a “claimed bonus to be released” but not sure how/when that gets released.

    1. We’ll look into this. I believe it’s because we have featured contests and they stay at the top, but if you sort by start time then it should filter by start time. BTW—we added a filter to only show contests that start today. This should help for Thursday Night Football.

    2. Working on this.

    3. This is on our to-do list.

    4. What’s your username?

    Live tracking is actually under my contests. I know, confusing, we need to switch this to my lineups.

    We’ll look into adding a swap feature that isn’t global.

    Yep, we’ll do our best to make sure that doesn’t happen again. : )

    Great, thanks Eric Username is Rockstate15! Love playing NHL on Draftpot, can we get the $25 Double Up and $20 Slap Shot games on a more frequent basis?

  • kellykip

    I’ve played the past 2 weeks in the GM Spike, and definitely enjoy the change of pace of using a PPG salary format.

    Thanks! I’ll PM you with more information. : )

    We’re still trying to figure out NHL, but yes, we need to do a better job of posting a bigger slate on a nightly basis. I’ll discuss with the team.

    Love the site! Maybe add events earlier? Like ncaa football and nhl guarantees

    NHL has only double-up tournaments?!… the only exception is the 0.25 entry one… I guess you can try some at least 11 or 22 entries @ $2 or $5 and see if they will fill up?

    Definately, Love playing NHL and so far have really become fond of the draftpot layout and concept. However the lack of NHL contests is concerning. I understand as I see some of them not appearing to fill up, but as it gets closer to contest start time i do see there is a sudden increase in “Entries” i think this has to do with a lot of “watchers” who are invested in posting and entry but waiting until the last minute regarding overlay

  • tkotrain

    Can you start adding the single entry nba $10 double up contest?

  • Skiin

    Please default all views to list. Player selection using my iPhone in grid view is painful.

    I think I’m just about done with this site.

    I appreciate the new prize structures, but the interface still leaves much to be desired. If I was to stop playing it’s due to my main issue which is the GM mode pricing.

    I was never that interested in the “fan mode”, so I was intrigued by the theoretical concept of using actual fantasy production to account for fantasy price. That really seemed like the true test of skill.

    I say “theoretical” because there are wild inconsistencies in the pricing which seem to be due to players missing games for injuries. To be honest, I didn’t mention this at first because I wanted to continue to take advantage of it. To this point I’ve exploited it as much as it has cost me and made a few bucks on the site, but now it’s pretty much anyone does, and it’s barely a game of skill anymore and it’s certainly not fun.
    In the NBA it’s just ridiculous. You have guys like Durant and Cousins that cost 20 something pts. despite averaging more than double that. They are 90% owned, which only goes to show that 10 of the field has no idea what they’re doing. Actually winning comes down to about 20% of your lineup because the rest is already done for you due to the pricing, you don’t even have to think about it.
    Every night, rosters are virtually the same, outside of a few players and it has nothing to do with research or NBA knowledge, it’s exploiting flaws in the sites pricing.

    I’ll probably stick around for NFL, while it’s an issue here as well, it’s less pronounced since NFL players are less consistent, but I’m hanging on by a thread,

    I 100% agree

    i played NBA here for the first time last night and was blow away by the player pricing. and after seeing ownership ‘s of multiple players in the 70’s 80’s and 90 i will most likely stick to NFL on this site.

    Thanks. Yep, we should post contests sooner, and now we have a plan in place to make sure this happens.

    Very sorry about this. There was a bug in the code that was screwing up salaries in GM Mode. This has been fixed. Kevin Durant salary is now 47.23.

  • Meatacus

    Yes the NBA prices seem to be adjusted, however due to this adjustment the total budget is now very limiting. Lineups will be filled with more bench players than desired if you want more than 1 or 2 stars.

  • tvsfrink

    Just like the real NBA?

    ….

    My biggest complaint is too many flex positions. Almost as bad as no flex on FD.
