Posted by: goukijones Mar 18, 2018 | 456 views | 8 comments
Hello, DropTheBelt Commissioners and Players,
We have reached a new milestone of 13,000 players on DropTheBelt.com. 13,114 at the time of this post. We want to say thank you to everyone playing and we are extremely happy with the continued enthusiasm for our website. As some of you know, we started keeping stats and making up rules as far back as the 90’s. We love wrestling and I’m certain that isn’t going to change. We love hearing that people don’t find just watching shows satisfying … unless they are getting points. It’s amazing and we appreciate the support. Thank you.
We are always working to improve the site. We’ve spent a lot of time recently working on current and future help requests. For those of you who are making help requests, you’ll soon start to see more interaction from all of the DtB MODs. We hope that we can have all questions and requests handled in a more appropriate time frame.
With that said we will be moving our home office within the next 30 days. There won’t be any downtime of the site, but it may seem slower in some of the content areas. Scoring will not be affected. The DtB LIVE Podcast Show will return on March 26, 2018. Make sure you tune into Gouki.TV on Twitch and chat with us live. All scoring will remain the same. And we will take a short break after WrestleMania. More on the season dates below.
DtB POLL CONTEST
Speaking of content, how about something new? We will be releasing a new version of the DtB Poll that will track your picks and put you in direct competition with on people on DtB. This is completely separate from the Fantasy League and this feature will be FREE! There will be prizes. We are currently planning to have a beta test live for WrestleMania, so please bear with us during this test. We hope to activate it full-on before the next season starts. There will be another post explaining how all of this works in the coming weeks.
MATCHMAKING DRAFT DAY
Free matchmaking leagues will now all draft at the same time. Every Saturday at 11:00 AM DtB Time (PDT). As long as your matchmaking league forms before Midnight on Friday you will draft on the next day, Saturday. This idea is so that everyone playing can play the next PPV or the next Monday Night Raw. No more drafting during live shows. Make sure you set a draft order for Auto-Draft!
DtB is in Bonus Season Mode right now!
What that means is… If you buy a year pass commissionership, you will get to play the rest of this current WrestleMania 2018 season and play the next 3 seasons thru WrestleMania 2019 for the one price. If you buy a single season commissionership, you will get the rest of the current WrestleMania 2018 season and the SummerSlam 2018 Season for just $9.99. This is something we always do after the second to last PPV of any season. We want people to have the Fantasy Wrestling experience and get a chance to see how everything works before starting an official league with their friends. DropTheBelt does not auto-renew.
UPCOMING SEASON DATES
- SummerSlam 2018. May 6, 2018, Backlash PPV - August 19, 2018, SummerSlam PPV.
- Survivor Series 2018. September 16, 2018 Hell in a Cell PPV - November 18, 2018 Survivor Series PPV.
- WrestleMania 2019. January 7, 2019, Monday Night RAW - April 7, 2019, WrestleMania PPV.
Rule Book updates will be coming soon. We’re working on rewrites to hopefully make the rules more easy to understand for everyone. The Rule Book page will also be getting visual updates. We are working on Team to Team trades. These are the two most requested features we want to add. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you all again for playing along with us. We will be moving our home base of operations soon and we plan to have things settled sometime after WrestleMania. Thank you to FnJimmy, Choke, and SugarNinja for taking care of DropTheBelt.com while we make this historic move. We’re looking forward to a huge 2018-2019 season and going for 20,000 players! Thank you to everyone playing #FantasyWrestling.
