    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?

    Just when I thought this thread had run its course Fanduel makes a statement through its rep and opens up another 50 questions.

    well this is some of the shadiest things to happen so far

    Takes all the fun out of losing when certain Sharks get to use tools to take money even faster like i wasn’t giving it away fast enough …Even worse is the only certain things are approved probably for certain players ….So much for this being a game of research and skill .. Now its research / skill , find out which computer tool is needed to beat the system and who you know to get your tool approved …..Good luck with the Attorney General he’s going to have a field day with these sites .

    Seriously how hard is to

    1-Have no employees playing
    2-Have every player just use whichever DFS site without any outside computer help

    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

    I agree I have never cheated just to make a extra buck .

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

    Forget player automation.Judging by the tone of that response, I’d say FanDuel_Rep is automated.

    new players can be smarter and pick games to join instead of pointlessly posting up their own H2H’s, that is a horrible strategy for a new player – FACT

    Why is it Kcannon’s fault that he beat a new guy in a H2H game that the new guy stupidly posted when he could have been smart with his CONTEST SELECTION and played a winnable game instead?

    (btw i don’t even think kcannon is that good h2h, any new guy who knows his thing when it comes to sports can beat him).

    scooping up H2H’s doesn’t make you win – you still need to set a good lineup.

    Logic seems to fail most

  • Dleepi01

    Shame on you Fanduel. What an awful response!

  • mrchuffy

    @Ryazan said...

    you have never broken a rule you didn’t know at the time you were breaking?

    really?

    Kcannon and the rest of these guys know they are breaking the rules….and if they didn’t know automatically grabbing a H2H before it even hit the lobby by narrowing it down to a certain criteria (low wins) is breaking the rules then they are just plain ignorant.

    I think everyone would be happy ( obviously except for the 1% ) if everyone had to sit at their computer and enter every last one of their contest …If they don’t want to sit the 24 hours straight doing it then hire someone to take the night shift entering your lineups …

    And also as mentioned before this particular script actually looked for players with certain wins so i would say this gave him a outside advantage …I actually don’t play any head2heads but damn it sure would be nice if i could play a bunch of games with nothing but noobs and I’m not even that good but I’m sure it would increase my chances of winning greatly .

    PLEASE outline your “confusion” between his script and your policies. This type of response only brings up more questions and concerns.

    This is such complete BS. Cheat the system for months/years, but as long as you pretend you didn’t know any better it’s totally fine. I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that this dude was bringing FD tons of rake the entire time. What a farce. Anyone else guessing we’ll be seeing more sensational headlines within the next few days?

    The AG is going to have a field day with these clowns….. I just hope they didn’t ruin DFS for all of us.

  • LW1984

    How about refunding all the people that were cheated out of money because of the “confusion”?

    if you lost to kcannon, it’s because you had a lineup worse than his.

    How about the people that beat him H2H after he scooped them, they should all give him his money back too, just to make it all nice and fair since the contest was invalid, right?

    @britdevine said...

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

    Got it

    Didn’t he have a 3 hour timeout?

    Wow. You, sir, are the biggest douchebag in the universe.

    the media is sick in the head. But that’s for the personal attack. It’s been reported. I will not attack you however, because i respect the good player that you are.

  • Syko

    I’m a glad with have the RGFDFSOC (RotoGrinders Forum DFS Oversight Committee) to help DK and FD keep their shit together. Absolutely embarrassing.
