    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?

    lmao you guys need to check the Kcannon and dmorts conversation going on right now on twitter.

    Link?

    There is a real problem right now with scripting. But going after somebody that only scoops one game I don’t think is the answer. There are many times during NBA I have sat and scooped one game from every player for variance. If he were scooping every game you post as opposed to one I could see the problem. But yeah. Just my thoughts.

    No the problem is he is picking them up automatically using a script and he has a certain criteria to do so. This is not good for growing the game, these greedy sharks are going to ruin it for everyone. Kcannon should learn from rayofhope.

    Wow, absolute jerk move by Kc on twitter in his encounter with Dmort. Took EVERY one of his games for complaining. Respect lost. https://twitter.com/MortDmort/status/652578322455638016

    Seems like if your bankroll is big enough you can get permission for just about anything you’d like on the sites, even if it wasn’t previously allowed.

  • Jshiffy

    Also, we are forgetting a huge part of this is that a ton of players only post 1 game. I refresh the NHL lobby and there are NEVER new games vs new opponents. Fucking stupid.

    But what if you didn’t have to sit in front of the computer….what if you had a program that allowed your computer to take a game from each user that met your criteria that would be cool right?

    It would also be against the current FanDuel TOS…well unless you did receive nebulous “permission” from them.

    if FD would just ban one player for doing this It would drastically decrease how often this happens. Since they take no action it continues to happen quite frequently I rarely play H2H because of this.

    They banned Tradestix, for 3 hours. 3 HOURS Guess what he started doing the next day in the FD H2H Lobby. Auto-scooping. Shocker.

  • JoakimNoah4Life

    I’m confused, I thought FD said any scripting that specifically targeted players wasn’t allowed (actually I think thats what the DK guy said in his recent live interview, but I’d guess the same applies for FD).

    And then we have a player here admitting that he’s using one, but only to bum hunt one game at a time?

    I sure would hope FD would look into this

    Yes I understand what you are saying. As well as all the other responses to what I said. Scripting is a huge a problem. I agree.

    This is interesting and it would have legs because of one inherent reality with H2H —> You can’t back out. So you have these people, posting in the Lobby and before anyone else with a mouse and keyboard can get their action…this dick scoops him.

    Now he is on Twitter telling a member that he does it cause there isnt enough action! What a greedy fuck.

    +1. Total jerk to dmort on twitter

    would you guys be for or against a rule on rg that said that no one create a thread to single out and attack one person? does anyone think it is a good thing to all jump on a thread just to bash a person they’ve never met (for the most part) because they might or might not be doing something that is prohibited?

    Can we get a DFS NASCAR or LoL pro to join Team Kcannon? He just can’t get enough action in NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, PGA, CFB, CBB, and SOC. The poor guy has had to resort to taking $1 games from new players. Please help him out, he’s really struggling.

  • Avgplayer

    Imagine going to a live final and running into 1 of these guys.

    He’s doing it. Not a debate. And his response to a RG user who Twittered him. “I’ll only take one game now”.

    Sorry dude, they don’t get the benefit of niceties.

    But sure, feel free to support his actions and this BS just because you are a fellow high volume BR guy. I’m sure that will come off great.

  • DCoop328

    He always enters exactly 1 of my h2hs within the first 5 seconds in CFB very suspicious.

  • entropy

    Just another reason why players should be able to mass block opponents based on the $ volume of the opponent. If a guy plays more than $25/day, I don’t want to play him.

    I will vote for the rule against attacking someone when the sites police themselves and stop catering to the top players—until then no

    Things slowly unraveling about these “pros” and “experts”…I like it but at the same time I’m very disappointed.

    I stated this wasn’t an attack, just an observation I made which turned into a very real very large issue.

    Of course he’s doing it—never did answer the yes or no ?

    Just think—ALL this started with 1 tweet

  • stoptheinsanity

    Just going to throw this out there. I’ve been mostly playing on Fantasydraft lately. None of this BS goes on over there. Far less action but I take what I can get. Also there is tons of overlay.

  • browns79

    Its not suspicious at all, their scripts scoop games within seconds of them being posted. We know it, the scripters know it, DK/FD know it.They turn a blind eye thou because more games=more rake.

    This is where FD/DK should be proactive and put a stop to letting a small amount of users manipulate their website . This is going to turn into another fiasco that puts another black eye on the industry.
