A whole season down the drain. It is my opinion, but roto offers much more of a challenge, plus you don't have to deal with those damn streaming starters.
I officially denounce H2H...
If it's "challenge" you're looking for, then I don't think it's close. In Roto you can gradually build your team, and then when you get it where you want it, basically sit back and relax. Not so in H2H -- you have to be more hands-on week after week. Nothing in Roto is close to the drama of mapping your pitching on the last day or two of a close H2H match-up. Managing offense isn't that different from Roto, although you do get into that "power or speed" thing some times. H2H brings you the same satisfaction as Roto in terms of building your team, but you get extra satisfaction in terms of maximizing that team's potential.
Sure, luck plays a role in terms of deciding winners of individual weeks (not so much the final standings, though). That's another thing that makes H2H fun -- every night matters. There are not nearly the highs and lows on a nightly basis in Roto.
If that sounds exhausting, it can be. Time to head back to Roto for a year to recharge my batteries.
