    Would anyone play KBO DFS if it were offered by FD or DK?

  • panters

    MyKBO reported all “games to be played as scheduled” for tomorrow morning.

  • panters

    Everyone must have went back to work except me.

    I haven’t gone back to work either. I guess people don’t like KBO anymore.

    I hear ya. That leaves more for us!

    The Bat Flip on DK has a top prize of $50K for tomorrow morning’s slate. I have a ticket from that promotion they were running last week.

    What can you do with a single entry in a 150-max contest? You can try to squeeze in as much value as possible under the cap with the best/favorited/chalkiest plays and maybe sneak in a bat or two that goes against the grain. That might be good enough to get over the cash line in a tournament like this.

    OR you could go full contrarian and have a lesser chance of cashing, but land a much bigger payout if/when disaster strikes.

    Hmmmmm…

  • panters

    I would go for the gusto (big bucks). Whatever you decide…good luck!

    Ok. Time to find another sport to poison! I think I have cursed them all. I am ruining careers globally now!

    It’s hard for me to love it, as mostly I just see the last inning or so of a lineup or two that already busted. Tuesday-Thursday I have golf showdowns, but I’ll be back Friday to complete my DK task, err mission.

    Thanks for reminding me as I keep forgetting about the Missions. Hope things improve for you.

  • ifthethunder

    Damn. Got up before 5, checked my lineup, replaced some players DK said weren’t in. Forgot about the weather. Four zeroes from postponed Heroes-Twins.

    Thankfully only had one in the ppd game. So i still managed to cash.

  • ryanprzy

    Ugh. Set a 5am alarm to make three KBO lineups. Woke up all zombie-like, got on the DK app, was scrolling through names and… fell back asleep. It happens.

  • ryanprzy

    On another note, with the “early” game on a Friday night/Saturday morning, DK had a real chance to beef up their Showdown format, but whiffed.

    If they’re balking at making these Showdowns bigger because of the lack of interest, that lack of interest IS A RESULT OF THE CONTESTS BEING TOO SMALL. I refuse to play in these 1,189-entry contests and I’m not the only one.

    So make a push and increase the size of the contests, and promote it if you have to. It’s risking overlay but not even at the cost of the free daily “NFL” Madden contests.

    I was doing my best to accept the fact that the game I like just isn’t very popular. Unfortunately I took a look at the prizes for the soccer showdowns and got all unhappy again. Every random crazy sport has huge prizes except the only one I enjoy playing. It just seems like you’re right and that people are just playing wherever the prizes are big, and we aren’t being picked for those prizes. I felt like an idiot today while entering to play for such small prizes, especially because I also agree that tonight was a missed opportunity for a bigger game due to the weekend/start time factor.

  • SkateFiend

    Two minutes before lock and 8 teams apparently have not posted lineups yet.

  • jayzee666

    And Saupold falls to the REAPER. I am now an international DFS parasite sucking the life out any player in my LU. I can only hope that the remaining games get cancelled except for the KT game.

  • panters

    More last minute rainouts. I’m done with KBO. Good luck to you all.

    No rainouts in Showdown mode! Come join us, help us build up the prize pools. Little secret, I make my lineups before the official starters are announced, I just use the projected starters and a little “look at yesterday’s box score” research combined with the rotowire injury report. Sometimes I wake up and double check before lock, but usually I just watch the end of the game when I wake up and see how much I won. I don’t even bother check weather, rainout = refund, delay = more game I get to watch. No risk of fading rainy games that end up playing, and no risk of ending up with 0s when your stack gets rained out.

    The Showdowns can be a lot of fun, especially when you’re watching that particular game.

    For last year’s MLB playoffs, DK was running some great promos and the contests were big. I understand KBO isn’t MLB baseball but it’s all we have right now and lots of people will play if they increase the size of the contests. As it is now, it’s not worth it.

  • ifthethunder

    Finally gonna score! Yes, both my pitchers have negative points, but when you have a 2,873 entry double-up that doesn’t half-fill…

    https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/87299078?uc=1952309926#/

    P.S.There were two, one with 713 entries and one with 710…I wonder if DK double-created the contest by accident?

    Thank God I missed that one! I would have still finished out of the money! I would have put up a negative score and been disqualified for entering another contest when I should be banned!

  • jayzee666

    I have ruined KBO. I will see if I can do the same for NAS. Actually, yes I will ruin NAS also! At least there are achievements for NAS on DK.

  • yisman

    I entered a lineup into 4 KBO contests before lock

    now it shows me as not having entered a lineup

    weird, because I didn’t reserve entries. I entered directly from lineup page.

  • yisman

    I just read this happened to a lot of people

    they say one of the games started early so they refunded everyone who entered just before lock

    ugh

  • UGAdude

    DK asleep at the wheel this morning. No checkmarks next to any of the starters. I had to manually confirm all my lineups by looking at rotowire. Not easy to do with so many players having similar names.
