ottoneu Has Revamped Prizes

While we have been really happy with the launch of ottoneu Fantasy Baseball, the launch of the prize leagues definitely left something to be desired.  So having taken your comments into consideration, we’ve taken our industry leading prizes and improved them.

First, we’re changing the prizes to all cash, both for simplicity and to give our winners a bit more scratch in their pockets for the off-season.  Second, we’re introducing a $49.99 tier, available immediately.  First place at the end of the season will receive $300, second place will receive $100, and third will receive $50.  We’re also increasing the first place prize at the $99.99 tier.  First place will now receive $650, with second place receiving $200, and third place receiving $100 in cash.

Finally, we’re dropping the $249.99 and $499.99 tiers to interest-only lists.  If you’re interested in playing at a higher tier for higher prizes, let us know.  We will work with you on a league by league basis to optimize the prize structure for what you and your league wants!

Of course the $9.99 tier is still available, with multiple public leagues looking for members today and drafts happening all the time.

Between a game we think is excellent and prizes that are better than any other prize league out there, I believe we have a really strong offering for all levels of fantasy players.  We hope that these revamped prizes will be more to your liking.  Please let us know what you think in the comments or by contacting us.  Of course, there is still plenty of time before the season, so you can start a league or join one today!

For those of you thinking about joining an Ottoneu league, I can tell you first hand it will be better than just about anything out there. We held our draft last week (best draft experience I’ve ever had) and have already been making trades, auctioning free agents, etc. In fact, we’ve even had a few bumps and bruises with the site but Niv and his team have been on every single one with great communication and have been quick to implement changes for our league and others. I highly recommend Ottoneu.

That’s a nice endorsement. My only hesitancy is joining a league of complete strangers. This is the type of thing I typically do with friends rather than public leagues. How has that aspect been for you?

All my strangers have been great. One guy was AWOL from the message board and missed the first part of our auction (48 players). We finally got in touch with him and he didn’t complain or pout, but apologized for not realizing we were starting and expressing his excitement to begin playing immediately. Only problem with strangers has been the 2 or 3 west coasters, who obviously have quite different times available. It would be great to be able to set a time zone when creating a league, so that people can find the right one to join.

I joined a public league and so far it’s awesome. We set up list serv, and the communication has been great and everyone seems be as interested in their teams as I am in mine. I did it because I think I am a little more metric based than my friends and wanted to see how I fared against like ppl, if you are in the same boat you should def. so it.
