    Only see a single game contest on FD for Sunday’s game

    Already got my LU’s set. 6 total

    4 with Lebron. 2 of those he’s in the MVP, and 2 he’s the STAR.

    2 without Lebron (Rozier as MVP)

    I hope they add some 2 game slates with late swap. They did it last year.

    Based on size of gpp’s duel is offering, it doesn’t look like they’ll be offering 2 game slate. Hope I’m wrong. Not a fan of what they are offering.

    I might have to finally break down & open a DK account, sucks what FD is doing. Not a fan of this format at all

  • fightingjohn

    Yea why wouldn’t you offer a 2 game slate? Are they getting that lazy now. They really need to re-think what they are offering to their customers. But all they see the dollar and as long as we enter these contests, they are going to keep putting them out.

  • jfitzgan

    I normally play $20-$40 every day. Not doing it with their current format. It sucks cause I love hoops. Maybe they’ll offer it tomorrow.

    DK is only offering the Showdown as of now, Not sure why they have made it a two day, two game slate

    This will be a very bad sign if the 1 game Showdown becomes the dominant contest here over the 2 day, 2 game slate. It pretty much will mean you can expect the same thing when it comes to Sunday night and Monday night football. This is a VERY bad direction that DFS is going.

  • BUFUu2

    Yea I really hope they bring in the 2 game slate I am not a fan of nba showdown at all I do like it for mlb but not nba… I didn’t mind the beta version of king of the court I liked it over there showdown… If they don’t introduce it or bring in the king of court it will look like ill save my good amount of money and be done with nba for the year.

    There was a thread that was supposed to allow us to communicate with a fan duel rep. It was up for a bit but locked. Now I don’t see it anymore.

  • tmarohl

    I asked FD support last night if they would be offering two game slates for the Eastern/Western Conference. They said they were not sure as of yet. Said to keep an eye on the lobby.

  • jfitzgan

    Not sure yet, huh? Shrewd businessmen they are.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    Just want to add to this thread by saying that I too would play a lot less if all they offered were 1 game Showdown/Boost slates. Probably something like $50 as opposed to $150 per slate.

  • sox9

    Any chance the cut moves to Even?

  • tmarohl

    I just sent FD another support ticket asking for 2 game NBA slates. Maybe if a couple more of you do that they will offer one.

  • mike42

    I played showdown for the first time on Wed and found it amusing how bad I did. I doubt they do a 2 game slate. We need more competition in the industry than 2 main sites. They are basically like how cable companies used to be- We will be there sometime between 2am-11pm. If you wanted cable, you had to wait. If you want to play DFS, you have two choices that are very similar outside of the kicking game.

    They had a small 25K GPP on two separate days last week with late swap.
    Last year they had decent size two day slate GPP’s in the finals.
    These stupid one game slates are not something that excites me. I have won a couple and tied with like 2500 other people.

    I will also play less, maybe not at all, if this awful single-game Boost is all FD offers for the Conference Finals. Making the MVP 2x and adding a Star spot for 1.5x and a Pro spot for 1.2x amounts to putting lipstick on a pig, IMO. It’s still a 5-man roster that will probably still result in lots of ties that will reduce the payouts for everyone. Give me the full 9-man roster with four teams to pick from, keeping the challenge of weighing which stars to choose and finding value plays to fit them in. If FD insists on trying to force me to play this inferior format, then I will only play the GS/HOU games or not play at all. I’ll be pretty pissed off if I can’t play DFS for the Conference Finals because FD wants to force this single-game format on me. Get it together, FD, or you’re going to end up with a lot of dissatisfied customers on your hands.

    I don’t know how many people actually use rotogrinders but it looks like we’re going to have to boycott The Showdown. If we can’t get enough people to stand against this travesty one day nonsense than they’re moving forward.

    If I recall correctly, FD had 2 day slates for every game last year. Games would be both the 2nd game of a 2 day slate and the 1st game of a new 2 game slate. It was actually pretty interesting, as you could see which players went up in price and which players went down.

    I have heard you will not be having two game slates for the NBA finals. If that is true I am very sad and will not be playing again until next year. Many of us do not like playing the showdown games.

    Great news! Thanks for pestering them on our behalf, tmarohl.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    FD has a 2 day slate up! Contests are pretty small, so might want to reserve spots now.
