Yo KOTD, stop with this antiquated PPV shit

It's 2016. Why the fuck are my battle being split between 6 videos where I have to finish the previous video to see the next? Put the fucking battle in their own videos. How hard would that be? Not very.

Why is your PPV being managed by King Fly anyway? That dude was incarcerated during the internet's rise, he doesn't know shit about it. Give it to Mista Conspiracy, that guy looks like he could program a good website.

Also, your registration/login system is wack. Kinda dumb you gotta make a new account every PPV.

yuuuup I was literally just bitching about this in a fb chat. having to make a new account every time is absolutely unbelievable to me.

@Seanzo could make a 1000x better site than what is available.

New account every PPV is ridiculous. Data is so important, which users buy PPVs, what they watch, which battlers get views from PPV vs Youtube?

They could do something like UFC does and charge you annually for all PPVs that are released. Something like $100 per year for all Live PPVs. Get some budget up front and then just try and meet fans expectation. Get fans who purchase stuff like this an input on matches so you know how to keep them satisfied.

I know that Organik et al will read stuff like this and roll their eyes saying its not that easy, but unfortunately you don't really have a choice. You are a web based company effectively and having your online presence run by someone who wouldn't know shit from sugar digitally is not good enough. You are just begging other companies to come in and eat your lunch. Remember all your previous content is available for free, unlike something like the UFC, so fans have no reason to stick with KOTD if going forward your service is shit.

This is among many reasons I rarely buy battle rap PPVs. Haven't bought one since V2R. URL has the right idea here: no phones, no quotes, no clips. Keep the suspense alive, avoid bootlegs and pissed off fans, and incentivize actually going to the event buy not having a PPV.

Don't Flop has an infinitely better system at the cost of infinitely worse battles. You pay per-battle, or buy the whole thing for a package price, and then you get private Vimeo links in 1080p. I don't give a fuck if you're being bootlegged, King of the Dot -- it's for a reason, people don't find your product worth paying for because you're not giving them a reason to. Stop punishing those who paid for a product by making us sift through 2x as long Dirtbag Dan chat breaks to get through battles the shitty crowd ruined anyway.

(also, the whole "eiyo kingaddadat putchamoneywheyamoufiz, weherelive, cityname, makesummuvafuckin - breath - noise, yaw'lllllllllll" intro is retarded. megadef vs ncredable has more replay value because the shit takes no time to get into, and the battle itself wasn't anything special)

Card wasn't anywhere on the site, either. Just more merch. Stop mixing the merch sales with your PPV -- they should be two different sites entirely if you're going to try to pull this shit off in even a semi-professional way. Have us make an account, keep track of what PPVs we've bought so we can rewatch them in whole, or in separate chunks (and that doesn't mean 1/2 of Ill/Quill then 3 hours where it's Dunn D, Realiztic, with cutoffs and shit. just give us cropped battles.), add a live-chat somewhere on the site's sidebar to replace trying to sell me a $60 fitted (wait till round 3 there's some shit we gotta speak about) and we'd be fine. It's just a poor system, and it'll be a poor attempt at justifying all of it if you try to.

This hat's $20 on resale. Even less wholesale, and even LESS to a company wholesaling to have the seller company design/embroider the caps regardless.

So... Unless you've got Avi Rex in the back hand-stitching these fucking hats with two safety pins and a spool of thread, what's the justification for making them $70 (on sale 4 $60, woo)?

Buying wholesale hats is cheap. Dirt cheap, especially for a company with capital. I've been in the business of clothes and resale for 2 years through High School to substitute getting a part time job, so I'm more or less familiar with the whole process. I know for a fact embroidering these designs doesn't cost more than a dollar, and that's if you're going to a hand-done designer, not a multi-million dollar company that can do it faster than a human ever could. What's the deal with trying to push the same 3 designs over and over in different colorways? I'd probably have bought something by now if you weren't sitting here going for my wallet's neck for a hat.

hat = $30, maybe

Meh.

ICE/T was dope.
Pat had a really good round.
Mad flex vs Shocks was cool
Clips and Iron was Iight
Ars/Tez was fire
Saurus was really good
Illipsis put on for rmbva
Real deal was good but he was facing Bulletz which kinda takes a lot away from it
Title match was Iight

Rest was kinda weak.

You could wait for the YouTubes and not have to feel like you were missing something.

this is the dumbest shit
you know for-profit companies exist to make profits right?
i always got the feeling thats why they referred to them as for-profit
youve been in business and you need me to tell you that the goal is to do more than just recoup costs?

nice @ name in the forum title my man get it how you live lol

they could recoup costs by selling hats @ 40 and shirts @ 15, it's not a science to this shit, there's reasons behind all that they do and $70 hats are just a 900% production cost inflation. shouts to them for marketing it toward diehards, but it's forced on us. shouldn't be.

If you are a fan of KOTD and its style then yes it was worth it. Most of the battles ended up being better than you expect them too.
It wasnt no life changing battle event but solid

Your price range equals 65
Its not that much of difference than the 70 hat because the hat comes with a shirt

yes, but even separately, they're overpricing low quality products and the shirt's not of choice, so the price plummets further due to the fact they're back-logged shirts they're trying to get rid of that no one's gonna buy otherwise. it's an age old tactic, plenty of brands do "mystery" boxes where you get trash like a 2011 world dom shirt

This thread was a pretty entertaining read... bought one KOTD PPV, can't even remember the experience, but if this shit is as poorly constructed as you say, then damn.

The "critique" is funny af though.

Holla at me for coding, design, and developement KOTD, I'll hook ya'll up.

For lifetime PPV and a couple stacks.

Thanks for the breakdown homie.

Not live , no. But their site and set up is the worst ever. They have good graphics and marketing on their videos and on the PPV itself, but their customer service is bad. They do the actual live feed perfectly IMO but have to figure out a better website. It's god awful.

Speaking on merch, New Era hats are 24.99-35.99 tops in America lmao and that's for the good ones. I have one of the black with white logo kotd hats and it isn't the same quality as the American New Era hats and cost more. It's a decent hat but nothing like the ones you buy at Lids or wherever.

Still Kotd is miles ahead of every other league in these areas and I've given them so much money it's retarded.

Its not the broadcast that needs work as it is top notch, and I think all things considered is one of the most high quality reliable streams i've seen period. So I don't think there are any examples of a better broadcast, but there are plenty of examples of PPV purchasing models.

Here are a couple:

I meant in battling. If there is a league who has done the purchase model better maybe it's as simple as contacting KOTD and showing them that model. If there's not then maybe there's some kind of restriction ( finances) stopping it from being implemented. I dont know enough about a subject I just assume if it was easy why wouldn't they do it

that nlive shit is atrocious lol - its a paypal buy now button, how in the world is that a better model that what is being used now?
second one was for a subscription model - which is something we have been looking at, but with all the archives available free on youtube - really what is there to have in that at the moment? (ideas welcome)

seems like the biggest gripe is having to sign up again each ppv. ok. im going to keep the accounts live on the site after wd6 is over and see how it works. i have tried this in the past but for some reason the software didnt update some peoples privileges each ppv, thats why i stopped doing it that way,but theres been update since, so why not.

also understand yall hate the multiple parts in the one player. it just takes one bad apple to ruin the bunch as the saying goes and the direct links to the video players we were using on vimeo got passed around, bypassing the embed restriction, so for now - thats how its going to be going forward. sorry on that one.

breakneck - exactly how is the ppv customer service bad? have you ever had an issue and not been responded to asap when you emailed the customer service email? (support@kingofthedot.com). If you have emailed and received bad customer service, what email did you email from and how was it bad?
(btw - the whole "american new era hats" vs Canadian made you'll have to take up with the new era manufacturer, especially since you said you had a black classic hat - which were the new era store made and sold hats by new era themselves as a flagship exclusive hat. that's another reason the price is a bit higher because they arent just blanks you can take to lids to make, as we are in a partnership with new era canada. the price also includes a tshirt lets not forget.)

oh and trust me lol if you ever saw the bottom line on the store and how it does, you'd actually be wondering why we still do battles and dont just sell merch full time

also - i see that some people want the card included on the site. i guess thats just an over site on my part thinking that anyone who buys the ppv in the very minimum is subscribed to youtube and seen the announcements. def something seanzo has asked me to include before and i keep forgetting. noted.

anything else constructive yall got for me? besides @Casual being a whiny bitch as usual

Maybe @King Fly can reach out to his homies at DF for advice. They use Vimeo and it doesn't seem to cause an issue. Also a better model of being able to buy battles you wanna watch.

lmfao - going from live action to having a vod being uploaded days later is better? oh you mean what we did 2 years ago? yeah taking a step backwards is better...... lmfao.

btw - we tried how DF does it (well actually we did it before they did but anyways - we then tried it again for BO6) - and just like the DF ppvs - they sell like shit. Live outsells day delayed by a huge margin.

but thanks, next time we wanna take a step backward, i'll be sure to come ask you for advice bruv.

i meant in terms of allowing people to view individual battles and purchase them after the fact. obviously the live ppv wouldn't allow you to choose your battles. you'd probably even make some

it's okay though. gotta stop the pirates (cause apparently they can't bootleg this way ).

i know what you meant - and as i said - the sales suck. we did individual battles for bo6. its got less buys as individual links (combined together) than the ppv we did for gz sauga city lol

never said they couldnt bootleg - but they cant just grab the direct link to the videos like they can thru vimeo embedded players. but shit i forgot you run a successful pay per view business and know all the facts. my bad.

It seems like it would be easier to just use YouTube live streaming through a paid channel/event. When everything is already monetized through them, why not just do the live events through them too? Then all the analytics are in one place and the live stream can even be archived on the channel automatically too. People just need a Google account to pay. I've wondered why no leagues are really using it. I've only seen Grind Time do it about a year ago, however Illz wasn't really using a paid channel/event. He just made the live stream private and when you paid through PayPal you got access to it. The stream quality was perfect. Service been out for like 4 years.
