    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,

    So how are the salaries now calculated?

    Just wanted to say past couple weeks looks like you guys did add some more NFL low $ tournaments as I suggested. Really appreciate that! Good place to play DFS all around

    I’m also curious about the salary cap under the new pricing. I agree the new prices are closer to each player’s true value, but tightening up the pricing without changing the cap has made it a lot more restrictive. If you take average FD/DK cash scores of 275/250 respectively, those work out to about an average of 25 points/player, so the cap feels like it should be around 300 if you have a 10-player lineup. Either way, I’m curious how you guys settled on 275 as the cap and/or how it should or should not be different after tightening up the pricing.

    Design wise, i would lose the boxes. The boxes for each contest really don’t add anything to the site and when you drag your browser, at times you can see them overlapping and causing issues. The boxes of contests and also the large photos can go. I understand trying to look different but a view of only data across would be fine as well as players names and info and a small photo. At times I scroll through the large photos and hit next and next to get to smaller priced players only to have the app crash before it can get there.

    The large boxes take up areas that are not needed for people to understand or enjoy the product. Thanks.

    Starting tomorrow, salary is going up to 300.

    For NBA, average PPG over the last 10 games played.

    Why single entry on all NFL contests this week? Forcing me to play elsewhere doesn’t seem like a solid business strategy.

  • tvsfrink

    I don’t think everything is posted correctly just yet. The freeroll costs $1.00, for instance.

  • ZenBeats

    Love the single entry.

  • Meatacus

    I’m a fan of single entry tournaments but not having any mult entry I think is a really bad idea. Victiv/Starsdraft I know used to have unique multi-entry which I prefer over just multi-entry as I really dislike when players play the same lineup a bunch of times.
    I feel Draftpot used to have too high of a multi-entry limit where it was around the 10% of the contest limit but to only have single entry this weekend in NFL won’t have players on the site very long.

    Add more single entry double ups for NBA Fan Mode. I have been asking for the last 3 weeks.

    What is fun about having a top 45 and allowing each member to have 10+ entries?

    The odds are becoming worse than the quadruple ups on fanduel.

    The contest are not big enough for users to have 10+ entries.

    I don’t need an email for every single contest that is starting and each contest I won money in. You’re overloading my email box. It would be nice if you condense it to one for each slate of games.

    I’d like to see this as well. Or at least make smaller max entries.

    Mouse over your username on the site, click settings, uncheck the email boxes.

    Thanks for the feedback! One of our biggest goals is to redesign the site from scratch. We’re beginning this process shortly, and would love to get your feedback throughout the process. I’ll PM you with more information once we get the ball rolling.

    Thanks for the feedback. This isn’t permanent. We’re simply running a test to gauge single-entry interest.

    Question: do you only play multi-entry contests?

    This was fixed. : )

    Thanks for the feedback! As mentioned, this is only a test. Is there something specific you liked about Victiv’s GPPs?

    Thanks! Starting tomorrow, we’re decreasing the max entry cap to ~5% (currently 10%) for almost all NBA double ups. Also, we’ll test a few single entry double ups. : )

    NHL…whats the deal? Seen a real steady decrease in contests…no $20 double ups….no $200 slapshot…really like draftpot, but really concerned regarding the decrease of NHL contests….hope to see more…

  • Nobakov

    No, I play some single entry contests too..I don’t dislike them. I dislike that every single NFL contest is a single entry, ESPECIALLY the double ups. The NFL is really high variance, need to enter more than 1 LU to reduce that some. I also don’t like a huge number of entries in the multi entry.

    I think there’s a happy medium out there. A nice mix of SE and reasonable entry allowed ME’s.

    I agree with lowering the max entry. I’d even say it should be lower than the 5% I see being mentioned.

    General Idea

    1. Entrants / Max Entry
      100 and under / 2
      101-250 / 3 or 4
      251-400 / 5 or 6
      401-600 / 8
      and so on

    Sorry about that! We’re working on fixing this. In the meantime, you can click the red arrow button in the top right, click settings, and unsubscribe from emails.

    Thanks for the feedback. We’re going to start being creative when it comes to NHL. We just posted $20 double ups (4 max, 0% rake), and $100 winner takes all (3 max, 0% rake). Note: these aren’t guaranteed to start.
