Fantrax online draft

Postby germani40 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 9:30 am

For online drafting does the countdown go straight to zero or is like ESPN and Yahoo and when it gets to 10 seconds and there is a bid it goes back to 10 seconds and starts the countdown again. We have never done a league on there so none of us know.

i have never heard of any that just give you a certain number of seconds to bid. I think they all go down and when someone bids they go back to ten again.

FYI, Fantrax does not yet support live auctions at all. We're doing ours on ESPN (so we can import keeper players and salaries) and migrating the rosters over afterward.

Yeah, Fantrax screwed the pooch on live auctions. We're doing ours with Google Docs and Skype. :)

WOW..good to know..I have a FANTRAX keeper money auction being setup ...or so I thought!
good thing for this post.
Oddly,. they still allow for "LIVE AUCTION DRAFT" in their drop-down selections when setting up your draft.
I did find a small disclaimer in yellow that says "Live Auction Drafts are not yet available."

Not a bad idea to import over, however, wow, thats a lot of work.
