Another sport added to the slate.
Yet another sport has been added: This time, DraftKings has started to offer contests for Aussie Rules Football (officially known as Australian Football or AFL, but not to be confused with Arena Football League added a year ago).
You know the drill by now: RT now has first-class support for these contest results. You'll find Aussie Rules in your sports filter dropdown and in your cohort reports and profit charts. Everything should work seemlessly, but if you were one of the few to try and upload a file in the last few hours with Aussie results and got some errors, delete and re-import to get all your data in.
Just a quick note to say that we have added support in for FanDuel's Bundesliga contests. As all other soccer contests, these will get grouped into the "Soccer" sport.
As we wrote yesterday, both major DFS sites have started offering fantasy contests for the Korean Baseball Championship (KBO). We added support for this under a new "Baseball" sport, and categorized new FanDuel contests as such (to keep it distinct from your MLB results).
DraftKings have now completed its first KBO contests too. Unfortunately, they have decided to handle this new sport by categorizing it (rather erroneously) as MLB in your CSV files. So if you did an import in the last day or two, you will see your DraftKings KBO results imported successfully, but categorized as MLB rather than Baseball.
We have just pushed out an update that sniffs the title, and if it starts "KBO" then we instead categorize these as the new Baseball category. It's not ideal (we'd rather DK grouped these distinctly in the CSV file!) but hopefully it is a good quick fix for you so your data matches up. We will monitor this, and if the file format changes, we'll make the necessary updates.
FanDuel also spread a free-to-play contest for Call of Duty: Warzone. They decided to categorize this "warzone." We have added support for this, grouping them under the existing COD sport.
As always, if you had import errors (or if you want your DK KBO sport grouped outside MLB), then just delete your last upload and reimport.
Both DraftKings and FanDuel are opening up fantasy contests to KBO.
Both FanDuel and DraftKings are adding fantasy contests for the KBO League, the Korean Baseball Championship, the live league of which got underway on Monday.
FanDuel has already completed some one-day contests, and we have updated RotoTracker to handle this new contest type. As always, if you had errors over the last 24 hours, delete your upload and try again to make sure all your data imports correctly.
Notably, FanDuel has categorized this as simply "Baseball," and we have followed suit — you will find the contests put in this new category, distinct from MLB. This makes sense to us as it allows for the flexibility to expand into other niche baseball leagues and group them all together.
None of our users have uploaded KBO results yet, but as soon as they do, we'll work to add in support ASAP. We're not sure how DK will be categorizing these in the CSV file yet, but we will endeavor to match them up with the FD results so they are grouped together.
A couple of weeks after FanDuel, DraftKings has now added fantasy contests for eNASCAR's pro invitational series — and already we've added RotoTracker support.
We're getting faster and faster responding to new sporting contests added by the big DFS sites!
As of a few moments ago, we added first-class support for this new sport. It will now be correctly categorized in the existing eNASCAR sport — that means if you're playing it across both FD and DK, the contests will be grouped together in the same sport (just like NFL, NBA etc) for analysis.
As always, you'll find a special eNASCAR filter under sports, a line on your sports profit graph, and a listing in the sport cohort report, for deeper analysis of your performance in this growing discipline.
We're pretty fast this time adding in support, but if you were among the few customers who uploaded contests over the last few hours, please delete your upload and do a re-sync to get all your contests imported.
