    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?

    I have a script that alerts me every time a sore loser complains on this forum…. and that baby is working overtime the past few weeks.

    I think when the initial response “To allow certain scripts” came down, there were many of us that realized this kind of thing was inevitable.

    Scripts or any kind of software to gain an ADVANTAGE should have no part in DFS.

    After scooping your micro stakes h2h games for the past year, I’ve been able to purchase only the finest persian wool rugs… no rug burn. Thanks.

    Just curious how does it show your ranking but it doesn’t show any of your results ?

    RG only shows results from contests you’ve won. Unfortunately, I haven’t cashed anything in three years.

    How can the lineups be legal if the contest was illegal ….

    Everything is a matter of degree. If we take the explanation at face value, there was an inadvertent TOS violation based on an apparent miscommunication. While problematic, it doesn’t seem like that huge an issue itself (it only indicates that there could be a larger issue if FD can’t, or won’t, track script-use on its own site).

    As long as kcannon didn’t have the ability to change his lineups after they had locked, and thus actually cheat, then there is no real reason refunds should be provided.

    Just implement a matchup blocker and it prevents some of these situations. Having experienced players target new users and pick up every single one of their games is not a good user experience.

    Can we put an end to scripts? I’m really sick and tired of hearing about it. I’m against the idea of scripts.

    Scripts cater to the high volume sharks that generate the most rake at the expense of the newer, more niave players. These sites have proven they’re happy to make that trade off. Scripts are never going away.

    Btw I am all for ending scripts in general. I just don’t agree that they are the reason people lose/win.

    They aren’t a reason people win/lose, but they create an edge or an illusion of edge for those that don’t have the scripts. If they are going to allow scripts, every script that is approved by FD needs to be available to all their users.

    So, I’m trying to pick up some H2H action tonight…and it’s a pain in the ass! I don’t want to play someone multiple times, but when I refresh the page it no longer lets me know when I have already played someone.

  • BeltWieldindad

    Can we get clarity on a few issues arising from Fanduel’s response?

    1. If the scripting policy was truly edited on October 8th no longer allowing people to use their script to become the 2nd entry in a h2h what brought about this edit?

    2. Were script users informed about this change of policy, and if not then why were they not informed?

    3. It says in the scripting policy that “Conversely and more importantly, there are scripts that we will ban outright, like being the 2nd entry into any head to head contest”. Were people allowed to use scripts to do this up until October 8th, and did Kcannon explicitly receive permission from fanduel to use such a script until the policy change

    Thanks!

    you really dont get it. the problem isnt that people are upset because kcannon’s script takes their games. the problem is his script was taking the action that others wanted but didnt have a fair shot at getting cause you aren’t gonna get it before his script did.

    also, can we somehow determine ryazan is a script and ban him? atleast for 3 hours?

    Scooping new players at low stakes will ruin the odds of a new player sticking around thus hurting DFS in general. There are umpteen solutions here. A cap on the max number of times players can face each other in a given event,sport, and even week (aggregate) would help solve issues like this.
