So I am pretty sure that Tradestix and a_dreamystar are running a scooping script in 3-man FD contests (I only say “pretty sure” in the name of political correctness). If you would like the details as to how I know/think this, I would be glad to share but I didn’t want to be too long winded in my initial post.
Anyway, I contacted FD last weekend after it was going on for a few hours. I got the usual “we will look into it” response. I contacted them later in the night, and the rep gave me the usual spiel but volunteered that he noticed it too and would have engineering look into it. Finally, when it was still going on Sunday morning, I notified FD again. A different rep veered from the stock answer, talking about how some users could script with permission from the site.
Fast forward to now, and it is happening again. Anyone else effected by this? They grab every contest INSTANTLY as soon as the 2nd user joins, provided they are within the parameters of the script (I don’t know the parameters, I have 1280 wins total, 311 NFL, and a I get scooped).
So it is literally impossible to get 3-man action without them, unless you have x number of wins.
I thought even with the new policy for contest entry, automated scooping was against TOS? Regardless, this is unfair to those of us who greatly value game/opponent selection and choose opponents the legit way.
