    They are promising to cash everyone out but there is a notice on the site that it’s dead. If you want your money, it might be good to get in line now.

    Thats how you responsibly shutdown a site.

    Obviously, the owners of Statclash did not consult with the same “advisors, experts, and past/potential investors” that told Dan Ziernicki that FantasyUp had “no choice but to shut down the business and dissolve” without paying their players. Kudos to Statclash for paying out. They did the right thing.

    I played for a brief period of time on Statclash. Simply put, there wasn’t much action on the site and I didn’t like the fact that I couldn’t download players salaries into Excel. With that being said, Statclash’s Customer Service was always prompt and I’m sorry to hear that they couldn’t make it.

    I think it was November or December that 247drafts shut down and paid out all balances.

  • MrFantasy

    I have to imagine there are going to be more and more sites closing up shop in the near future. The future of DFS is still in question and funding is harder to get. Good to see they will be paying their players though

    I could tell this was going to happen after wk1 nfl this year. Its too bad i really liked Statclash

  • ranoa513

    Ballr paid me out in full after they went down too. F U are the only assholes around it seems, at least so far. Thanks for the fun Statclash. Always enjoyed my time on your site. Good luck to your crew in all their future endeavors.

    what is StatClash and why would people play there over the more proven big sites? Like taking a risk with their money?

    If anyone has ever played on BukBuk.com or is planning on it, be aware they have not updated contests in the past week and also have not responded to my withdraw request or emails.

    Where do people find these sites? I’ve never heard of StatClash or BukBuk..

    people who think they are gaining an edge or profit by playing on small DFS sites instead of the big trusted ones, because they think the competition is easier.

    But you get what you pay for – no one knows what these small unregulated sites are up to, and I think it’s CRAZY to attempt to play on them, as FantasyUp is proving.

  • MrFantasy

    If RotoGrinders is an affiliate for the site and they are FSTA members there is no reason to be scared to play on the smaller sites.

    Personally i never deposited any money into BukBuk. They offered some cash to play to start. Pretty sure most of these sites started small and had to build from somewhere

    Statclash was the first site to offer soccer, and I personally owe my beginnings in DFS to that site. Started with $0 on there and built up a small roll from freerolls until DK offered soccer.

    Statclash will always have a special place in my heart RIP.

    stat clash has been around for a while, players from years back knew and know of this site and others. Never had a problem getting paid by stat clash, just not much traffic.

    Four years ago, DraftKings was a small site (there were easily four to six sites that were larger than they were during their first football season).

    A couple years ago, StatClash was larger than FantasyAces.

    Just because a site is not currently in the top two, doesn’t mean they should all be summarily avoided.

    I definitely agree that there needs to be caution used when looking at the smaller sites (particularly the mini sites), especially if they are not members of the FSTA and/or if they have not been vetted by RotoGrinders. These are not foolproof seals of approval, but it is better than nothing.

    100% agree with emac. Whenever I try a new site out I either make a really tiny deposit or I will build a roll on that site with freerolls as another user said. I have always gotten paid by the smaller sites. Only one or two times was there even a delay in payment.

    Overlay. I know back at WarDraft I would consistently play in 10 man 50/50s with only 6-7 people joining so the odds were great. Assuming same overlay at small sites + free rolls still exist. Once you really move up in stakes these small sites really are impossible to play though because I find it hard to get 200-300$ of action on a night.

  • travs424

    rip statclash, loved mlb on that site, i also won an ipad on the site, they missed the chance a few years ago to get bigger and bring in bigger players and increase traffic, then site went dead. same 25 guys exchanging money on the site.

    i have a draftstreet and a statclash tshirt, i need to try to get a collection of dead site tshirts.

  • manBEAST

    I think there is a section of DFS players like me who play a few bucks on FD and DK for fun but play the smaller sites to make money if you aren’t profiting on the big sites I suggest you try the smaller sites because no matter how much of a masochist you are if you aren’t winning it just isn’t as much fun. I’ve probably played on most of the sites over the years some great ones and not so great ones, everyone’s situations different but if you only play the top 2 sites you could be limiting your bankroll gainz!

    I’ll second this. RotoGrinders does some good filtering with those sites who they allow to advertise with them.

  • RobD311

    Same here. Cashed out once in December with no issues. For about 2 weeks now, my NHL contests are stuck in “Live” mode and my withdrawal request has gone unanswered. Email, Facebook, Twitter… no response. But they are still recruiting Beta-Testers!

  • sutogame

    Their support email is down. Anyway to contact them?

    Thanks
