ESPN Fantasy Basketball sucks so I decided to make my own. Ask me anything!
For those of you who play fantasy basketball, you probably understand the pain and struggle one has to go through just to set up a league to play against friends. Having played for 6 years now, I got really sick and tired of everything, especially since neither ESPN nor Yahoo have put a dime into designing better UI for the user. I mean seriously - a multibillion dollar company and the site hasn't gotten an update in some 500+ years.
The way these sites work is that you message everyone you want to play against a few weeks prior to the season starting, set up a draft date, and then draft all your players. There is an inherent flaw in this because it means that I can't invite a friend to a league that I've already made a week later. So if I wanted to play against 2 sets of friends, it would mean that I would have to create a NEW league and manage a NEW team. This became an unnecessary amount of work.
Now I'm a college student studying computer science right now (at UCSD, go Tritons) and decided that it was time to make a version of fantasy basketball that people would ACTUALLY enjoy playing. One where it wasn't just a cruddy site embedded inside a mobile app. One where I could invite my friends whenever I wanted. One where it was actually fun to use AND play. And this is how I came up with Roshi Fantasy:
I've spent well over 1000+ hours making this thing, but I did it because I know there's a lot of people out there that have the same problem I do. I hope you guys like it :)
I'll be on my computer for the next 2004838 hours managing the server so ask me anything!!!
EDIT: WHOA Thanks for the feedback everyone!!! It looks like a fellow redditor made a league called reddit for everyone to join. Keep the comments coming!
EDIT 2: The demand for Roshi on Android and Roshi for NFL has been crazy - I love it. I made a google form. Fill it out if you want to be notified!
EDIT 3: Looks like a lot of people are looking for a sort of public league to join. Just made a subreddit so feel free to post there!: https://www.reddit.com/r/roshifantasy/
