    Hey guys,

    We are making some changes to data collection and criteria for our Rankings as an interim solution to our rankings feeds being temporarily disabled on Fanduel and DraftKings as outlined by this post.

    Whereas before we were getting data feeds from our partners, we are now collecting publicly available data from the lobbies of the big two sites using a dedicated team of employees/interns. We are making sure to collect this data without violating the terms of service of either site (i.e. using a manual process instead of using scripts to collect data).

    Because this is a labor-intensive process and because we are only working with Tournaments in the lobbies, we are now only counting Tournaments and Satellites with $10,000 prize pools and a minimum of 10 players. 50/50s, multipliers, and Heads Up games will not be included in the Rankings going forward. We will be moving to these criteria on all sites, not just Fanduel and DraftKings.

    We started this process several weeks ago when our data feeds were pulled and now have a process of importing this data into our database, so over the next several days, you will start to see recent results for FD and DK added to your profile!

    We still consider this a temporary/interim change. Fanduel and DraftKings have both told us they want to support the RotoGrinders rankings once they have more clarity and more time to review their policies. We will continue to work with them and may return to a more comprehensive rankings system in the future.

    With this change in data collection, we also have plans to introduce several new Ranking lists broken down by average buy-in level, so that smaller-level players can rank themselves against players that play at similar levels. Keep an eye out for these. We think they will be a big hit!

    Have you ever seen people using clippers on their lawn? There’s a really nice old man in our neighborhood and I’ll see him about once a week basically laying in his yard, trimming the grass around his sidewalk with scissors. Makes my body hurt just thinking about it and the dude’s like 80.

    i bet that’s the guy who ends up living till like 105

    I wanted to bump this again. Can any of the RG staff comment on when we might see this tiered ranking system? Has the idea been shelved?

    Hi @dude_abides7. Nope, it’s not shelved. We are still working on tiered rankings, and we are tweaking the divisions to put an even number of members into each tier. We hope to have something out soon.

    Awesome man. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing it.
