    Important: this is not an attack on Kyle, I’ve listened to some interviews with him and follow him on twitter and he seems like a cool guy, this is simply a question.

    That being said, has anybody had experience with Kyle scooping your NHL h2h this year? I feel like he has scooped exactly 1 of my $1 h2h before i can even reload the page no matter what time I create the game. Is it possible he is using a script or software?

    the 100K was a real good story. It was the Super Slugger in MLB, my favorite contest of them all. I was collecting low buy in tickets for 3 weeks for that, and i ended up with 20 satellite tickets that I won from $5 and $25 buy ins, so that night of the Super Slugger, i didn’t have to pay a penny, and i got to play 20 lineups in it. I realized ahead of time that I am spending probably 1 grand or 2 grand just trying to collect these tickets, so i took the short term loss for a shot at the long term gain.

    My favorite part about that Super Slugger is that i took it down with a full coors stack (right all of you % owned matters people??) haha. It was when the Nationals beat the Rockies like 15-6 or somethin like that

    Yeah it as MLB. Jesus congrats man.

    Im going to try and satty and see how it goes.

    I remember clicking on the link that night. Congrats! I remember because i was shocked at how low owned the coors players were. Maybe it was actually a good example of ownership . You get coors players at like 5 owned that is incredible value!

    Hmmm good point! I can’t argue against it. Btw I met u in Miami earlier this year for the NBA live finals I remember u dude, u are a freakin good player

    Lol its funny yall are just now mentioning it. I first realized something back in like June I was always posting h2hs either 270 or 535 in MLB and before I even hit refresh it would be matched. I called him out on it when I first heard about “Scripting” I still dont even know what it is. It got to the point where I would post games at all different hours even 4 ama nd I would be like wow is this dude really up on FD 24-7??? So he told me he picks up games with people who have less than like 250 wins its shady and I kinda just stopped posting games but yes with all going on with the industry this has to stop now!

  • PeasantPower

    Pretty sure he automatically scoops all single entry h2h posts on DK for CFB. You’ll never find one unless it’s a regular who posted 20 and is down to their last one.

    appreciate you commenting!! anyway you can comment more on the confusion? you have always been very explicit that auto scooping based off win level is not within your policy

    Any chance you guys could make public who (Players and/or Companies) have FD approved scripts? That would provide major transparency about the use of them.

    Not allowing scripting of any kind should be priority #1 for the DFS industry.

    Could the win totals also be eliminated which would help some of the issues at hand.

    Additionally, a matchup limiter to the number of times an opponent could pick up a game at each price level would be keen.

    This post seems to raise more questions than provide answers.

    people will think i am crazy for saying this considering how much ive been talking lately.

    But i agree, ALL SCRIPTS should be banned. There is simply no reason any player should ever need to use one.

    I don’t use one, and I win a ton, and thus anyone can win a ton, even Maxdalury himself. Let;s get the nerdy programming stuff out of there, there is no room for it in fantasy sports – fantasy sports are for sports lovers, not for computer geeks.

    Agree with Dan’s post and would like to piggyback to add a further question about if you have reached out to ALL script users now about your changing terms. As it would appear, your terms changed on October 8 and this RG post was made on October 9. Without this post, what was/is FD’s process of reaching out to script users to ensure that they no longer violate the new TOS?

    If no process is in place, you will end up with lots of this happening:

    Please end player automation now ….If player wants to enter 5000 lineups then fine make them sit at their computer entering those lineups ..

    i personally enjoy sitting there and handcrafting all of my lineups 1 by 1. It is just too nerdy and non-appreciative of the sport itself to program lineups to be set. DFS is for sports lovers, not for programmers.

    So as long as you are confused, you can break the rules with no penalties?

    Got it

    How many other players have approved scripts but confusion on how they can use it?

    I figured this was the case, FD approved the tool. Then the tool was used in a manner that was not approved.

    What is FD doing to stop this from happening with other players?

    BANNING all scripts will solve these issues.

    1st offense 1 month ban, 2nd offense 1 year ban, 3rd offense ban for life. If one person is banned for a month I guarantee scripting will decrease instantly.

    The matchup limiter and CSV file for GPP’s have been an issue for years. Major issues. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like that’s a priority though. I think it would severely help with many issues.

    Piggybacking on this post:

    Does FanDuel have any method to determine if people with approved scripts are actually using them in the manner that they were approved for? It appears, at least in this case, that FanDuel does not monitor how scripts are being used.

    Not on a gambling website where other people’s money is involved at a time of intense media scrutiny when a high profile player is stealing games from new players via a computer program while he is not even physically at his computer…no
