It is easily the most ambitious fantasy ultimate platform released to date and, in many ways, mirrors the experience found in other fantasy sports, like football and baseball.
The portal offers a live draft, the ability to add and drop players throughout the season, seamless lineup changes, and player rankings. In our initial tests, we did have to combat some bugginess with the beta application, but MLU’s fantasy team is responsive and helpful as they clean up the occasional issues.
Check out some screenshots below of the various pages:

What has yet to be shown, but could be one of the biggest innovations, is real-time statistics updates during games, showing users exactly how many points their players have scored. That is a standard feature in ESPN, Yahoo, and other fantasy sports leagues that could vastly improve the user experience in the MLU fantasy game.
While there are still some issues to be worked out, it is clearly a well-built fantasy application that could revolutionize fantasy ultimate. The MLU team is also hosting an AMA on Reddit to answer user questions this afternoon.
