    Happy Monday Grinders! We have updated the Lineup Builder with a Rules tab where you will be able to fine tune your builds even further. Our first addition to the Rules tab is a “Players Per Team” section where you can set your min and max players per team. Use the “Change Max” input and button to adjust the max players per team for all teams or adjust the individual team sliders. Look out for more updates to the Rules tab as we plan to add player correlation and improved stacking rules in the near future!

    Thanks nicslim! The LU builder is great all around from the way it works to the ease of use!

  • B_Edelman

    It seems like if you don’t adjust this, the builder will spit out some lineups that don’t follow site rules on minimum amount of different teams etc.

    nicslim LU builder not working just gets stuck after pressing build LU’s, please help

  • birn

    I’m having the same problem with the LU builder. Just keeps getting stuck and won’t generate any lineups. It’s happening on both the website and with the RG lineup builder app.

    Hey guys,

    Nick made a few updates and it should be working now.

  • kylehaeussler

    Did the use strict exposure feature get removed with the update or am I missing it?

  • birn

    Still not working for me. It only works on the app for the main slate. I’m trying to research for the 8pm late slates but it keeps giving me the standard red error message box suggesting that I adjust max exposure, increase variability, etc.

  • MalphiteGod420

    I was having issues with it connecting today too, finally got it to work, I hope this gets fixed so it can never happen again.

    Still looking into this problem with the late slates. It seems to work if you adjust some settings like the number of lineups, exposures, or projections. Trying to figure out why some configurations are returning 0 lineups when they should. Sorry for the issues and thanks for everyone’s patience.

    Yes, we removed it and set it to continue running and attempt to find lineups with relaxed exposures. The reasoning here is that if you have “use strict exposures” checked and your exposures were too constrained to find the full amount of lineups, your exposures would still show higher than target because it is dividing the count by the actual lineups generated.

    Relaxing exposures to try and get more lineups would have the same result of actual exposures being higher than target. So we decided to simplify things by removing the setting and adding some messaging on the exposures table about why exposures may be higher than target along with some suggestions.

    We have some logic that ensures that lineups follow the site rules and these take precedence over the players per team settings. So if you for example tried to do min 6 players from the Cavs, you wouldn’t get any lineups back.

    This is a awesome program but I just wish it was more reliable. Why does it sometime not connect near lock? If a lot of people are using the lineup builder does that cause it? Like it doesn’t say can’t return lineups it just legit doesn’t connect at all and it worries the hell out of me as lock approaches and I can’t mass edit my lineup by generating a new one. Does the lineup builder run better on chrome over firefox or it doesn’t matter?

    You’re correct. It sometimes has trouble connecting near lock if many people are using it, which is not acceptable to us and something we’re working hard to improve. Yesterday was worse than usual due to high traffic mixed with some problems caused by an update we made behind the scenes. We’ve since made some adjustments that should make it more reliable and will be keeping a close eye on it throughout the day as usage increases towards lineup lock.

  • birn

    Thanks for your work to make the LU builder better and more reliable. I’ve been trying to use it this morning and it’s still not generating lineups. Getting the same error messages. Any other suggestions or ideas?

  • MalphiteGod420

    Llneup builder won’t connect and I have 50 dummy lineups to edit, is there another free lineup builder program somewhere to use as a backup? Like 3 days ago this happened and I got stuck on 100% Cousins and lost big that day, and now I’m in line to lose again if I can’t mass edit my lineups. I love the program but it doesn’t work when I need it to. I would pay for the program if it was cheaper than its competitors, as long as it always works…

  • MalphiteGod420

    I’m a idiot depending a free service for hundreds of dollars in lineups. I don’t know how you other guys depend on this lineup builder daily when it doesn’t connect.

  • MalphiteGod420

    As soon as lock was over I try to generate a lineup and it worked. Unreal.

  • birn

    Worked for me right before lock on the late slates.

    Hey guys, sorry for all of the problems yesterday and the day before. We’ve rolled back some updates that were causing the 0 lineup and connection issues until we can better diagnose. The new players per team settings will work for the Tournament build strategy, but not for the optimal until we can fix the issue. Thanks for your patience. We aim to have the most reliable lineup builder regardless of whether its free or paid.

  • birn

    No worries at all. You guys have been terrific in addressing these issues and making the tools even better for everyone. Much appreciated.

  • MalphiteGod420

    I haven’t been able to connect the last 15 minutes, anyone else having any luck?

  • tvsfrink

    Apologies if this is not actually related, but it seems to me that there has been a problem with missing players since this was implemented. The problem occurs when I try to pick a replacement in a non-specific spot (G, F, or UTIL). What appears to be happening is that the builder is limiting the replacement players to the same position as the player slotted in by the lineup builder. So for example, if the builder gives me Demarcus Cousins at UTIL, it will only allow me to replace him with other centers at that UTIL position. If it gives me Paul George at UTIL, I can only replace him with other SF.

    thanks for the heads up. I see the problem that you’re talking about and we’ll work on a fix for it

  • MalphiteGod420

    Dat feel when I have 100 lineups to edit and the lineup builder won’t connect for the last 15 minutes and lock is in 10 minutes…

  • MalphiteGod420

    This isn’t right. How does the lineup builder win a award when it doesn’t work all the time? Sigh, now I get to enjoy watching my money go down the drain because I couldn’t edit my dummy lineups 25 minutes before lock. Just awesome times. Love to see this isn’t fixed yet and its hilarious no one else gives a and doesn’t complain. I really don’t want to invest $100 on some lineup builder program when I’m already in the hole thousands, and thanks again rg lineup builder tool for screwing me over yet again, I thought this was over because it has been working the last several times I used it, but occasionally it just burns the hell out of me and I can’t do anything about it because you guys won’t address this issue. Can’t there be some kind of waiting queue and you are guaranteed to get a lineup generated within x amount of time? Come on guys come up with something, maybe I’m just a moron for trusting a free tool. Sigh
