    I noticed on DK that they have a qualifier for a “Bracket Challenge” that costs $33 to enter and you get one ticket into this bracket challenge. I couldn’t find any info on this. Does anyone know what this is?

    Cheers,
    JC

    I haven’t seen any news on this but I’m excited to see what it is! Great for the MMA Community, that’s for sure.

    I sent an email to DK asking for some details on this challenge. When I hear something I will pass the details on.

    Below is the reply I got from DK.

    This contest was run earlier than it was supposed to. We are in the process of creating the landing page which will have all details including contest structure and payouts. As soon as it has been made, it will appear under the promotions tab. I apologize that I am not able to provide more information at this time, however, we wont be offering more of these contests until the landing page has been made.

    It really does seem like DK is making things up as they go along re: DFS MMA. However, it did say “Sneak Peak” and they sold out the contest even without anyone knowing the details! If that isn’t a testament to the appetite for more Qualification Only & Live Qualifier Events, I don’t know what else would be!

    What I don’t get is this was suppose to be a sneak peak which okay you ran one without any contest details but now your telling us there might not be any more this week. Makes zero sense not to have at least the promo details up right now…

    Win one of 32 MMA Bracket Challenge seats in this qualifier! This 32-player bracket will occur throughout a total of five weeks, with the ultimate winner taking home the $20K first prize!

    They have added one for each contest this weekend. One for $33 and one for $300

    I just sent them a email asking to put up a promo page as they have had weeks to do so..

    I love contests like these but when you have zero clue what your playing for beside a chance to win up to 20k I sort of feel like a fool potentially losing money.

    Like do you get paid if you lose your opening round? and if so how much? A payout page just like every other promo is pretty important. Listing the people who have all ready won a seat and a cool promo page should be a must…
    ~
    I’m not trying to complain but i’m trying to teach them that things like this matter and by doing so sparks more interest out of other people and there for they will sell out more qualifiers.

    Until they get there crap together my 100 bucks each tourney is out. A person could spend 3200 or even more and not know what you win round to round.. This is Qualifier #5 coming up if they plan on having 1 each event that means the earliest 32 seats could be filled is June 17th and that is if there is an event every week until after March 18th Event. Plus 5 weeks of brackets means this thing would not wrap up until at the least July 22nd.

    https://www.draftkings.com/lp/2016-mma-bracket Nice to see.

  • zelda3024

    I think they might be a little confused the promo page shows a round of 64:) but with only 32 players that might be a little hard to do.

    Fixed:)

    Good luck to those who make it or have all ready made it.

    One thing I did not like about this tourney was the rule that if an identical tie occurs in the first round, the DraftKings Player who qualified first for the Fantasy MMA $100K Bracket Challenge shall be deemed the winner.

    Never ever should that method be used to select a player to advance… Regardless where you finish if a tie occurs it should be broken by a method that gives each player a fair shake at advancing… Like they could use a total point prediction on how many points you think you will score and the person that is closer advances.

    I could not imagine being knocked out of a tourney with the same lineup and because I Qualified 20th vs the Guy who Qualified 1st. Chances are those who Qualified ahead of you spent less money winning there seat. For sure the Guy who won the first seat did lol…

    Congrats, got 2nd, won a qualifier into the 300 qualifier hoping I hit

  • zelda3024

    Congrats Teddy and good luck Ronny in the 300.

  • zelda3024

    The sad part about this type tourney is how long of a deal this has become. Many players down the stretch have lost interest. Not only that but it has been the only challenge event this year. Draftkings should focus on live events with MMA and have a yearly Championship. They could easy do 2 or 3 live events a year. Who does not want to play for chances to go to Vegas or New York and watch live and win cash.

    I agree.

    Theres 4 spots left in the bracket challenge I think they need to give them all away on 5/13 so we can get this thing started. It would be perfect for the bracket challenge since the next 5 cards will be back to back from 5/28 – 6/25.

  • Trayder22

    cant wait i got ticket #29 for the mma bracket

    Looks like there was 1 tiebreaker so im guessing we will have to push the challenge out further…ugh.

  • zelda3024

    So far I know of one player who did not even put in a line up.. What a waste.
