    Joining StarStreet

    First off I want to thank the guys at RotoGrinders for running such an amazing community and bringing us all together (and for that awesome party they threw week 1 in Vegas where I got to meet Jeremy). Also, a big thank you to Jeremy, Nicolo and the team at StarStreet for taking a shot on me and giving me this amazing opportunity that I’ve been dreaming about for so long.

    Going forward, my biggest goal with StarStreet is to make it the best place for you guys (the serious players) to play. I’ll always be available to you guys, whether on here, by email (peter@starstreet.com), phone (617-433-7827) or however you want to reach me.
    One big ask for you – please let me know whenever there’s something you think we can improve. What should be our biggest focus? What can we do better? What don’t you like about StarStreet?

    Psyched to hear your guys thoughts, and really excited to be moving to Boston and truly getting the opportunity to think about Daily Fantasy 24/7 and bring some of my ideas to life!

    Congrats on joining the StarStreet team. Met you in Vegas and couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Love the site so far. Only thing SS really needs right now is a quick player replace. Other than that the site is awesome and slowly becoming my favorite site to play on. Once again congrats and I’ll be seeing you soon in Vegas to battle for that 150K.

    For basketball I really like the 4 utility spots, you can really do alot of different things with your line up….What I don’t like was the baseball product….I didnt like buying shares for a salary cap style game….I felt like it added more of a luck element into each match.

    for the pick 5 it would be nice if you could see the players stats like you can on the rest of the site

    The pick 5 game is a lot of fun, but it would be cool to have multiple “game cards” per night to choose from.

    I completely agree guys. Do you think it would be fun to have multiple windows (different pick 5’s) to choose from? I also like the idea of doing a $50 perfect pick five to win $1,000. Thoughts?

    SRS, SS is my favorite site right now with the expanded rosters for all sports.

    Random matching HU is also the best HU format by far out there.

    If you aren’t on SS, you are missing out

    I need to take a job there!

    I would always love input on the stock market game. That is what initially attracted to me to StarStreet. I have been trying to think of creative ways to make it easier for the casual fan and would love to talk about it more.

  • thebeesknees

    I think you need to make it painfully obvious that it pays out at the end of the season based on fantasy points earned over the season. I didn’t know what the inherent value of each share was and therefore it didn’t seem all that appealing. Now that I dug into the rules and things it is a really cool idea. There needs to be some kind of smack you in the face obvious tutorial for new players.

  • misfit

    So, the top player on the site will actually be working for the site?? And no one finds this strange?? I am not accusing them of anything underhanded but the opportunity is clearly there and why would you even invite this type of thought process? Its one thing to be ecustomer service. However, ANY site employees should not be allowed to play on said site. Are you saying that you will NOT be playing at SS anymore? If you are simply a sponsored pro then you should have no other hand in the site. There have already been several threads posted showing concern over site employees playing on the site they work for. Whits even posted one of them.

    I haven’t been playing for over 2 weeks now. Once it was apparent I was going to be working for StarStreet I stopped playing 100%. I think it is unethical and not right for any site employee to play on their site for real money. I do not play and will not play on StarStreet for real money going forward.

    OK thats Great to hear. I really do wish you luck in your new position and I am sure you are going to be an asset to the industry as a whole. SS has made some nice improvements to their site since they launched last year and seem to be adding more every week.
    I did like the how the leagues used to show across the top of the page. I dont see that anymore. Maybe I just wasnt in enough leagues for it to show this week? Wish you would bring that back or at least something similar.

  • misfit

    On a personal note though I wont miss you as a player there!! It seems I was matched up against you way to often for my tastes and as you can guess, that didnt end well for me. lol!!

    Misfit I would love to hear more of your thoughts on a “Scoreboard.” I think that one of the most important aspects of a site is the live viewer and being able to track your games. Any ideas Misfit?

    CSU congrats to the new job and welcome to Boston. I like a lot that Starstreet does. My only suggestion would be the deposit bonus to release faster into your bankroll – not necessarily a higher % but just faster as in when you enter a contest the bonus should immediately release into your account so you can put it into play. I found the bonus was a 24 hour lag give or take.

    Great feedback… I will talk with Jeremy and our engineers to see if we can make this happen.

    What about a survivor series format gpp with your 5/5, break it up into two or three days like a 50/50 till there is a winner. make bigger prize pool for it.

    I don’t like the recent changes to monitoring ‘live’ games.
    Once a game starts you can no longer get info on it (ie: payout structure etc)

  • britdevine

    • 2014 StarStreet MLB Playboy Mansion Finalist

    A few suggestions

    1. I’d like to be able to see what games and how many entries I’m already registered for on the game entry screen. (So I know how many entries I already have in each turny, HU, double up..ETC)

    2. An indicator when watching scoring live of how many points your player just went up or down, something that stays up for 5-10 seconds when a scoring change is made so you know who just scored for you and how much

    3. Increase your GPP’s for NBA, seriously, they all fill all the time I think, add a few spots to the $1, 5, 10 doubles for sure

    4. Roster editior needs to be better for using multiple lineups, currently its great if you want to use 1 lineup per day, but very hard if you want to use multiples or if your playing 5 entires in a turny. I would suggest something like FF Global roster editor, where you can see every lineup for every game with the Game info available so you can see what rosters are in what game..etc

    5. Please Please Please do not share results with RG, or if you plan to, have an option to disable info sharing, I have no interest in letting anyone know how much winnings I have or anything like that. I’d also love love love the option to disable it on your site, No one needs to know how much I play or how much I’ve won or any of that crap, I hate it.

    6. If I think of more ill add some
