Suggestions on improving playoffs in VP leagues

12 posts in this topic

As mentioned on anther thread, the live scoring experience on the website during the playoffs in Victory Points leagues needs improvement so let's discuss it here. If you have any input or suggestions, we'd like to hear it. The more detailed the better. We will then take these suggestions to our dev team to see how much can be implemented for the 2016 season. Even if we can't implement everything for some reason or another, we will definitely make substantial improvements. Thanks in advance for your help on this!

Please give us the ability to set lineups for at least one future week so we do not have to wait until Tuesday morning to start setting lineups for the coming week. This suggestion applies to all leagues, not just VP leagues.

Try your hardest to replicate the live scoring from Draft Kings.  The score "burst" of color and the shift in live scoring is supreme.  You can FEEL how things are going when it works that well. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  Time to watch fireworks from the front yard!!!

I posted this in another forum last month but I'll repeat it here to keep it from getting lost:

 

Would be nice if somewhere down the road you could figure out a way to show all 4 teams involved in a playoff week on the same page in the VP format leagues.  It's mildly annoying to have to recall which are the playoff teams in which leagues and then click through your 3 competitors to assess your chances of advancing/winning.

 

At the very least if you could group together the teams playing against each other on the upper dashboard of the live results it would help a ton.

 

And since you're about it with those two very reasonable requests   :) it would be really cool if that upper dashboard showed not only the current live score for each team but also their current projected final score a la Yahoo.  Yahoo might have the worst platform on the planet but they nailed that feature. Love it!

That is scheduled to be done for 2016, before the season starts. It is like #25 on our list, only because it is not needed until the season is about to start.

Good requests and these should not be too hard IMO.

How about on the main page of VP and Dynasty leagues if we could see the playoff brackets and have them updated throughout the playoffs.  For dynasty leagues, a separate bracket for the competition for the #1 pick.

 

Bonus points if you can put the brackets up starting around week 10 so it's easy to see at a glance who's in and who's out as we come down the stretch.

I think we already have this on the playoffs tab on the main page.

If so, I missed it.  Would be nice to see it on the main league page though.

We may be looking at different things, not sure.  The Playoffs Tab is on the Main League Page directly above the Transactions section and next to the the League Chat.  Normally, the Standings tab is the default, but if you click the Playoffs tab, you get a table shows the 6 teams in the playoffs, the two teams on bye (designated in Week 14 with a Q) and the 2 teams that are eliminated after Week 14 (designated with an E in Weeks 15-16) and finally the total score for the Final 4 teams in weeks 15-16.  

 

I didn't know this tab was available at first but stumbled upon it.  What would be awesome is if Live Scoring were set up in a similar format where we could see the running playoff totals at any given time during game day.
