    I am likely missing something obvious, but it looks like the 2:05 Early slate (not arcade) was refunded. There were 2 of 8 games rained out and canceled before start……..and up to like 30 minutes ago, my lineups were still available to edit. Now it looks like the entire slate canceled and refunded.

    No big deal really but curious as to why

    I was editing and had one left and it locked on me. Im kinda annoyed as I wasted my time editing and making lineups

  • JaysFan9293

    Yep same here.. I would have entered afternoon if I’d had known..

  • Jaws1002

    They sent an email…

    We are writing to inform you that due to an error, today’s Early MLB contests went live prematurely.

    As a result, players from the postponed games were locked early and these players could not be swapped out. As none of the games in the draft group had begun, we have cancelled the Early MLB contests, and refunded the entry fees back to your account.

    We understand this is a frustrating experience, we have created a 10K freeroll for tonight’s MLB draft group.

    i made 3 lineups and saw my cash was refunded and have no idea why…..they were probably too good.

  • cwatson51

    Pisses me off . These sites are about a joke. If my players go off I’ll be raising he’ll I had a great lineup loved the slate

  • JaysFan9293

    Makes sense now I guess.. I’m not out money. Felt I had a winner… Lol. Like always.

    What they should have done was refund the people who had players from the postponed games and let the contests continue.

    Canceling all contests and refunding everyone was silly. Now I wasted all my time on that slate for no reason.

    DK just keeps chasing me away….

    Shit.. Never thought of that. Your probably right you or I would have had 1st and second… I’m not watching the results

  • eperson911

    So, did the players in the early games lock before 2:05?

    Some Braindead idiot over there doesn’t know AM from PM. They shouldn’t have changed the start time in the first place and it probably affected <5% of users because it happened right before lock and the non PPD games were not locked when they made the change. Canceling the slate is lunacy.

  • JaysFan9293

    Ya I guess it really only affected guys who still had player’s in those cancelled games. But plenty warning if ya ask me.

    Total BS, I would have a HR, Double, 3 k’s from 1 pitcher already

  • shark2152

    Terrible on Scherzer uber chalk day in Atlanta too

  • Thanasi

    What the hell? How does DK think people are going to react to having all their work scraped? I played a handful of contests & received no info except a email 20 mins before lock. I put those lineups in hours before lock and kept editing through 10:30am. I didn’t play any of the ppd games because I checked before hand & already knew. DK your brains were deeply imbedded in your backside during this decision process.

    I had 23 lineups in and 1 that was dead but not bc of postponed games. I was in the middle of editing it when it went live. I was fine with getting that one lineup refunded and play the others. It was overlaying as well.

  • hcassidy

    Talk about garbage, I had stacks of Rays, Indians & Red Sox(3 of my guys have hit HR’s) paired with Nova and Clevinger as my Pitchers.

  • eperson911

    Did they not know about this until the contests were canceled after 4? How does it take so long to get a notification out about it?

  • BigRay

    Yep. Had Corey Dickerson 2 HRs. Some other rays too. They should have left it alone. Next time I have someone in ppd. I wNt a refund too.

  • BigRay

    Copy of what I sent to DK.

    Why did you cancel the early slate today? The PPD’s were announced and there was nothing to be done. Instead you tried to reconfigure the skates and messed up. If you are refunding today’s skate due to PPD, in the future I would like refunds for all contests that I have players drafted in games that are postponed.

    The free roll has more entries than the contest did?

    Are they allowed to cancel a guaranteed contest AFTER lock? How is there no authority in place to prevent this type of shit? I’ve had plenty of contests lock with guys scratched/games cancelled etc. and they didn’t cancel/refund any of those games? It’s becoming more and more of a necessity for this industry to survive for the long term there needs to be some governing body put in place similar to the gaming commission. They need someone to answer too besides being able to throw a 10k freeroll out there and think that is fine with everyone.

    I politely disagree….they shouldnt have done a damn thing, period… What i mean is just give the minions an afternoon off and let us have fun instead of letting idiots decide to change slate times and all that stuff

    You tell me, looks like they violated their own rules in doing the cancellations.
