    I am liking FanPicks already – I don’t mind the smaller pools of people and think their pricing is actually fine, though some may disagree. However, it does need improvements, both to the site and to the game selection. I thought this thread might be a good place for those of us who enjoy college football to make suggestions to FP for their site for college football contests. Here are some of mine:

    So far, most of the contests are Top 10% only (20 of 200) for instance. I’d like to see some be Top 20%, or top 15%.

    I’d like to see some smaller slates of games offered on Saturdays, comprising 3 to 7 games. Conference specific slates in the future would be fun.

    I’d like to see some better data as far as the stats go – maybe more commentary on each player ,though I will say I like the fact this requires people to do research.

    I’m still not sure what Voucher Funds means.

    The Bonus Pool thing is weird and I still can’t figure it out. IT’s like this pool of $55 and it goes down like a trickle…only .08 so far? I don’t get that and wish it could be better explained/reformed.

    That’s just for starters – any others?

    Pricing simply just needs to be tighter. Need to give an edge to players who know rosters and pay attention to news. As of now anyone can enter a competitive team because they just pick off the top.

    They need to improve the site and UI itself. Less than 1 hour before kick here, and I can’t login or see my upcoming contests. Total joke.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    I hear you Fab we are working on both and hope to have rectified soon.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    7thdaymoneytime what type of device are you trying to log in with as we have not heard any issues like that as of yet today?

  • Export needs major improvement

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Hey guys just an update on pricing we are working on logic now that will tighten it up and you will see in place for next week.

  • What about your export feature?
    If I’m rolling with one lineup in over a dozen tournaments and I need to switch out one player, I’m wasting a lot of time and energy going into each entry and manually switching that player out. It would be so much better to export one lineup into all of the applicable tournaments that I’ve entered.

    Did anyone notice a big reduction in the number of contests this week? There are a grand total of 6 available games for tonight, all of which are full.

    I can’t give money away if I can’t play.

    You guys absolutely need to make it easier to see your entered lineups. It’s almost impossible, if you are juggling more than 5 lineups, to make any last minute changes. Last week, Mahomes was out all week, then roughly 10-15 minutes before gametime it was apparent he was going to play. It was a major problem trying to find which lineups I had his backup in. I had some duds because I couldn’t make the changes in time because I couldn’t find which lineups had which players in them without going to each one individually. DK and FD used to show you your lineups on your “My Lineups” page, not just the games you’re entered in.

    I like those $0.50 contests, but they haven’t been filling the last few weeks. Why not let us enter more than 5 entries in those? Maybe 10-15 and they’ll fill?

  • nickrock23

    Make them guaranteed, they will fill, and yes make the max entries bigger. When that one website sponsored a game and made it guaranteed, that was the biggest contest i’ve seen and i believe it filled, like 400 entries maybe more?..

    If a contest doesn’t look like it’s going to fill, i don’t join because it locks up the $, then I can’t use it until the game goes off. But you guys add gpp’s very late for $5, they dont fill, which is good if you get in those, but i think it would be better for everyone, especially fanpicks, to make a 500 entry guaranteed $0.50 , max it at 10.. that would fill easy. Pay out the top 50. More winner, more return players, more people getting confidence, getting involved, etc.

    Proof of that is the learner permit games… you guys fill them over and over, 40 people , $1, and they fill cause they are guaranteed. So I have to think you can easily fill a 500 at .50, if the max entry was 10.

    I wish we could get guaranteed 1000 entry $3 and $5 games and higher going eventually, but before we can get that we have to be able to fill the $0.50’s.

  • ItzJamesFTW

    I’ve noticed if it’s a guaranteed contest it will fill without much worry. I don’t think I have seen a guaranteed contest not fill yet. It’s time to make them 50 man entries instead of 40. Pay out the top 10.

  • BabyBuster

    Agree with everything Nick said.

    Make a $0.50/$2.00 1000 person entry contest. Max people out at 25 entries – guarantee it. It will fill.

    I have been all for fanpicks since the start, and still am. I have done well there but we are now halfway through the season and the pricing is still terrible. The afternoon slate only has 16 players over the average salary per player price range. You can basically roster anyone. Finding value and doing research doesnt do much for you. For example last week I was deciding between Dalvin Cook and Ronald Jones with leaving 3k on the table. This is leading to huge overlap on rosters and extremely high scores. Like I said Im doing fine but with that they would tighten it up. In my opinion an average player should be around 5.5k salary not the #3 wide reciever and #5 RB.

  • yostradamus

    Why don’t you have more single entry contests?……….I will never play multi entry.

    25 team single entry tournaments 0 $1, $3 and $5………..They will fill……….

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Hey guys we are still working on pricing and it will tighten up in near future. I have also added an $5.00 80 person contest to lobby for cfb also have raised entry limit on the .50 long bomb to 20 so have at it. We are doing all we can to continually improve and feel we have done so week after week. I understand the pricing issues and we will tighten it up.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    And there are now some $2.00 25 person wta single entry contest in lobby just for you yostradamus!

  • iwrestle

    Jump over to Draftworld, pricing extremely tight.

  • BabyBuster

    Thanks Scott – I’ve seen the improvements and appreciate you guys working hard on your end.

    Hacing Lamar back in the slate certainly helps the pricing issues.

  • ScottatFanpicks

    Pricing has been adjusted and hopefully you boys notice we are also constantly working to improve speed of updates.

  • yostradamus

    Still need more single entry contests….not interested in WTA. or mulit entry..

  • nickrock23

    Stangs, I was in the same situation with Ronald Jones and Cook. I left 3000 or so on the table in some on that slate but that was the only slate last week that was way way too loose. I think there was either one other bargain i was using, or no high priced QB’s. This week the pricing is much better.

    Yostradamus, there are the $1 learner permits which are single entry and 40 entries.

  • BabyBuster

    What happened to the guaranteed contests? :( These “big” (100/200 person) gpps are not going to fill unless there is a little green G next to them. Hope I’m wrong but this seems pointless…

    Guarantee them and they’ll fill by friday

  • nickrock23

    GPPs fill so easy, so making the 200 non-g is pointless. no one will join them.

    I love the point spread games, but they aren’t filling anymore. the 15 entry aren’t filling, so this week they made 20 entries… how does that make sense? You can’t fill 15, so make 20? Make them 10!! and make them guaranteed and they will FILL 100000% !!! I swear it’s like they are throwing $ away. If they are guaranteed and not filled , players , myself included, will keep joining at the end until they’re full.

    More .50 and 1.00 games with a bunch of entries, make it 10 or 15 or 20 max entries and gpp, 300, 400 , 500 will fill, make the top 50 get paid so people WIN and come back and play more. that’s the whole point they are missing.

  • BabyBuster

    Agreed – this makes zero sense. They’re can’t get out of their own way.
