    That they take the contests down 10 seconds before gametime now? I have the join window up and the countdown is on, but as soon as it hits 10 (or maybe even 12), the contests all disappear, and if you try and join, they say the game has already started. You can’t do any last-second joins anymore. It sort of stinks for anyone watching for overlay because everyone is doing the same thing, but can’t fault the business practice I guess.

    I believe you can still do edits right up until the last second, but I try not to put myself in that situation too often.

    Can’t fault the business practice? You mean by preventing you scooping up some overlay? If you think about it I’m sure they lose a ton of money taking it down 10 seconds before and it’s likely an error on their end. Why would they not want that extra $ filling up their contests that aren’t full? Not to mention the join rate only increases up until lock

    How exactly is this preventing you from grabbing some overlay? All that is happening is that the clock is moved up ten seconds. In no way does that preclude you from hunting overlay.

    The amount of ‘the sky is falling’ and illogical threads popping up is increasing at an alarming rate of late.

    They are not taking the game down 10 seconds before the game. It is the latency between your computer and the website. As a matter of fact on my machine the game still accepts entries a good 30 seconds after the timer has clocked out.

    That’s why I stopped playing the 777 contests. They would have those pop up with like a minute left and they fill every time.
