    A $3 just 10k guarantee. A single entry $1. And $7 20k for first. I get nhl isn’t the most popular how is it supposed to get bigger with such bad choices. Shrinking the $3 and single entry is so silly imo

  • deejones49

    They want to fill the 100k so they put the Breakaway at 10k they only do it every now and then

    I really don’t mind the FD pools if it’s just Tuesdays that they lower the GTD for breakaway. It’s still 100x better $3 60k Sniper at DK and top prize is 1.5k.

    Whatever FD is doing, it’s better than the overly flat and deep structures DK has going.

    These prize pools really scare me come basketball season, they will only get smaller

    Agreed! Now that FD has changed their scoring to be more like DK, and DK inexplicably ruins their GPP structure, FD is the new DK for NHL grinders.

    Hey DK, if you’re going to fix this, you might want to get going on it. Otherwise, when all the high raking 150 entry guys migrate to FD you won’t be able to support payouts above $1000 in the sniper anyway. The early-season grace period is ending. Time to fix the structure.

  • garybmw

    Yup, I played only DK last year, now thanks to these absurd DK payouts I had to switch to FD for NHL. This has to be fixed ASAP

    Yes the dk one is bad too. But even for just Tuesdays sucks. I mean there’s only 3 (maybe 4 every now and then) days during the week with a lot of games on a slate. Even a $1 3-5 max would be better than single entry

  • SteveM

    Yeah similar here. I played the first half of last season at FD then tired of their disdain for their own NHL product (missing players, wrong positions, etc. WAY too frequently) so I moved all my action to DK for the 2nd half of the season. Now this. I’m starting to feel like nobody wants my rake. :-(

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    I’m just happy they added the mini one timer.
    As a small stakes player, i loved the $1 294entry GPP’s they added during baseball season and had been disappointed they weren’t being offered for NHL.

  • stooge72

    I agree. I talked to a guy on fd chat and he pretty much gave me the runaround

    The DK GPPs suck, but so does the FD product compared to DK (player pool, pricing, etc). I keep going back and forth between which site I want to play on. Leaning towards FD.

    How is the Aces hockey product? I loved DK hockey last year – but am beyond tilted by these GPP structures.

    This is my problem is well. I mostly played DK last season, but dabbled in FD towards the end of the year. Although FD this season has had better GPP structures than DK, the fact that they have so many issues with their pricing and player pool means I haven’t redeposited over there yet for this season and have been playing exclusively on DK so far.

    I’m holding out hope that DK is going to offer better GPP structures as the season goes on, but for the time being I’m just playing 100% cash games on big slates on DK, and playing in their flat GPP’s on slates that have fewer games.

    You mean no one is looking forward to the NHL Sniper tonight on DK where there are 23529 people with a prize pool of $60k. First place gets a whopping $1500 (2.5 percent of prize pool). I would like flatter payout structures, but this is way too extreme. There should be a minimum of 10 percent for 1st.

    It’s insanity. DK has a 20k larger prize pool but I’m only playing my $3 entries on FD tonight. That’s something I’ve never done before.

  • maxeernst

    Is anybody really playing DFS because they want to make $5 from their $3? No.

    But I can see why the sites do this to balance the ecosystem. Top heavy payouts get withdrawn in large part I’d imagine.

    In the interest of DK to keep the money spread on site…

    But yeah. Get rid of dumb mincashes, pay less % of field, increase and flatten the top 1-20 payouts.

    Exactly this.

    We should all be writing DK support to recommend this. I did so earlier this afternoon.

  • Traplord

    Well looks like FD changed the $3 back to a 19k field for tomorrow

    FD’s $3 is great. DK’s $3 is atrocious, pay-out structure-wise, yet again.

    There needs to be a $1 multi entry GPP on FD with like 10k every day. Cannot believe they’re doing only $3 and $7

    So sad that NHL on DK is completely ruined. Been playing all last year and only going to play there on tuesdays. I don’t mind the FD tournaments so far as they are 100x better than DK so I rather them not change a thing.

    DK sniper today $50k in prizes…. 1k to first. This is out of hand. Hard to play GPPs on DK until they give us a better pay structure

    FDs 50k breakaway, basically the same tourney, paying 10k to first, 5k to second, 2.5k for third. Why would anyone multi entering play the sniper when there’s a way better option
