Being a fan of fantasy sports is quite simple, the only variable from year to year is the pro player roster change. New modes are few and far between, and the mold has never been broken. And then HypSports came into my life. My last couple months with the app has been filled with hours of learning the ins and outs. And when I think I have it all figured out, HypSports flips the switch and adds new features.
Let’s take a look at the new Season Showdown update, and I will give you a tip that saved my team last week.
The Main Menu Looks Even Sharper.
Though a minor change, HypSports, in its Season Showdown update, was able to take a sleek design and make it even more user friendly. For us fans of fantasy sports, it all comes down to where we stand against others. The new design has all this important information in the main pages header. If I want to check what my world ranking is, it is merely a glance away (btw – my world rank is pretty awesome in baseball.) Along with theses aesthetic changes comes the technical side of things.
For whatever reason, the HypSports app feels a lot faster. Now switching from H2H to challenges feels much faster. I can’t explain how or why, I just know it makes the life of a sports fan like me quite enjoyable. For me, it is beyond impressive to see so much information crammed into the main menu and yet it never looks cluttered.
Now, This is What I Call a Season Mode.
The biggest and most notable HypSports update is that of Season Showdown mode. This new mode blew me away. Season Showdown automatically selects your best projected lineup for you, and has you compete against the world in a full live season. The greatest thing about this mode is the fact that the matchups are based solely on roster skill. This means you will always have a matchup that is fair and balanced.
One sweet feature found in Season Showdown is you don’t need to spend tickets, in HypSports, tickets are a huge commodity. The whole set up of this new mode is no risk and pure reward. Season Showdown is the ultimate experience that includes a playoff system which I can’t wait to see in action.
Being in a H2H game can really be stressful, especially when you are short a position player. That was the first time I utilized the free agent feature. Unlike traditional fantasy sports, HypSports provides a unique free agency that rotates hourly. This was helpful in helping me inch out a baseball win last week. If you have a hiccup in your line up, swing by the free agent tab; it just might be your saving grace. I love the fact that any free agent purchase can be used immediately. My tip is always to have a little HypCash in reserve in order to troubleshoot quickly.
That is all I have for you this week. Be sure to give the new update a look. There are a ton of new things to do. Now it’s time to get back to earning HypCash in order to run the show come NFL football season on Sept 5th.
