This app is a scam. Here is what happens. You sign up and get put on a waitlist before you can become "active". The waitlist is some large arbitrary number like "you're number 16,415!". Then they notify you and email you constantly saying that other people are now ahead of you in line because they paid for a membership, which they then ask you to pay for a membership too. Paying for a membership doesn't even get you "in", it just bumps you up a little higher on their fake waitlist. This is a scam. Go use Hinge.
I couldn’t take the daily emails from the Millennial “concierge” - based in the Marina no less - who was speaking an entirely different language. I am “over 40” and live in Marin but the app decided I should receive regular emoji-filled messages from some single thirty-something who brags about his travels and offers tips on dating. I signed up to meet a significant other - for this I could go to the Marina Blvd Safeway.
The League started out well, but now anyone can buy their way off the waitlist, and the app has loads of problems - no prospects at 5pm - just a message asking you “try back later”, delayed messaging - I’m currently trying to respond to someone and “my message can’t be sent at this time”, the Concierge no longer responds quickly, the people are the same on Hinge or Bumble. Not really worth the $$ for such a bad UX. Would love to see them invest some of the money back into better development.
I find the whole set up tricks you into a monthly rate with cancel anytime / trial and then charge you a full year over $300. I found the app cumbersome, not intuitive, dull, lacking of choices and responses. I am highly disappointed
The fees to upgrade the service are absolutely ridiculous and the free version is pathetic. Gives you the chance to match with only 3 people a day. When you don’t get matches for a week they send you a message insinuating you are being too picky, even though being picky and choosing the right person is what the app advertises as their strength and difference maker. The few matches I have had all came back with no responses as well.
I don’t think it’s a scam but I don’t think there are a ton of people on this. I have never met anyone off of it, have been active over a month. I have barely matched with anyone. You get 5 profiles to see a day. I accidentally paid for a year because it tries to elude to the fact that you will pay whatever low price monthly it is and then be able to “cancel anytime”. $380 later yes I can cancel after my 1 year I already paid for up front for. The say “prestigious” and successful people only. I have seen people that work at dollar general and as bar staff (more power to ya) but call it what it is. Would not buy again at this point.
Not sure how the League works. It feels that it is sub-optimal I’m allowing to make connections. In addition the interface is clumsy. Good concept though
I’ve been on the waitlist for about two years...I don’t think I’ll ever be approved. Back to tinder I go.
Definitely, one of the higher quality sites to connect with real people! J.Manville
