    The event has already started and I can still edit fighters that are literally in the end of the first round. That’s not right

  • Sjolly83

    Repped! exactly they aren’t just screwing with possible money I could make but a night with buddies watching fights and having a rooting interest in them.

  • Trivonus

    I have two lineups that are 3-0 with 3 wins by KO and two favorites yet to fight. This could have been a big cash, and I’m fuming.

  • jovanmusk

    no the possibility of cashing out. i was already 3-0 before this decision came

  • Frickman81

    These guys are good man. They know how to deflect and all of a sudden people forget. I thought dfs was coming to an end 3-4 months ago when scripts weren’t allowed

    . Rewarding cheaters is unacceptable.

    Why do you keep calling it cheating

    Some people were still entering contests, and others who realized the lineups were still editable had no choice but to change it

    Cheating would be if someone hacked the system and pushed back their lock time

    I just can’t fathom how much they’ve hurt their MMA customer base with that decision…. Instead of refunding the 10% of players who would have complained, while letting the games run, they ruined the night for EVERYONE.

  • IronMonkey415

    When are we getting the refund? I’ll just use the money for tomorrow NFL contest . I WOULD LIKE THE MONEY NOW before those NFL contest are filled OKAY?

  • albrechp

    Convenient I can’t access my MMA lineups on the lineups page…glad I exported my ownership to a spreadsheet.

    If you selected a fighter in your lineup, watched that fight and watched your fighter get knocked out ( lose the fight). You still had the ability to change your lineup and take out that fighter. How is that fair?

    The DK lock didn’t happen until after a couple of fights in. At least thats how it was in the tourny I was in. That’s crazy man.

    All I’m saying is people who willingly and knowingly changed their lineups after 6pm and after their fighters fought, should be punished while the rest can keep playing. Of course I’m sure that’s too complicated for DK lol. So I guess the best thing they can do is just cancel the entire thing. =/

  • Pinhead6

    Haven’t wasted time thinking of best solution and not saying that would be the best one. I’m just saying that’s the most costly immediate solution they could have made and as they picked the cheapest immediate solution that is totally unfair to so many I hope it ends up being the most costly in the long term.

  • Sjolly83

    Whoever supports their decision doesn’t understand what the word guaranteed means. It is a promise that will be delivered NO MATTER WHAT. The solution was to run contest and refund on top.

  • Dunnit247

    PDFOUR: I was shocked when I found out that a fight had started. However, it would be IRRESPONSIBLE of me NOT to change my lineup. As it turned out, Lewis won in the 3rd and I had to change back quickly. However, doing that DOES NOT make me a ‘cheater’ and your continued insinuation that I, or anyone else who changed their lineup, is insulting, ignorant, and factually incorrect.

  • AQUAFTM45

    Being a conspiracy theorist. My assumption is that LOL geeks are hacking DK to get more play on the E-sport.

  • mccoolio

    Additional tickets should be good compensation, not a weak free roll open to everyone. Sorry to everyone who was entered, I feel your pain.

  • Campbell00021

    Unreal…BBomb picks were killing it too :( I dont care nothing about a damn freeroll. This sucks.

  • Trivonus

    Look man it was one fight that was up while it was editable. Smart money was already on Black Beast so its not even a big deal for us who had done research. You make it seem like 3 fights in people could change. Lets be honest DK messed up, and have yet to provide a real solution. This is a big deal in fantasy MMA.

    I truly feel that they HAVE to honor they guaranteed prize pools contractually. A lawyer would need to look at our entry contracts specifically, but I’m almost certain that “guaranteed,” means they have to honor that prize pool. no matter what. They have to pay winners of guaranteed pools and refund the buy-in’s of losers, that is my legal opinion. We all could very well have a class action against Draft Kings due to this decision.

  • CityBoy410

    I agree with you PDFOUR, but trust me there are tons of “non” professional DFS players who put in work too.

    what a mess.

    They should have locked it ASAP, paid out the winners based on that lock, and then refunded everyone that lost based on the lineups at the time of locking the contest.

    Who knows how this will play out now, but this is pretty bad.

  • relay20

    SO PISSED THIS IS BS DRAFTKINGS…I threw in a few lineups going off of bbbomb’s picks and he was doing awesome. I feel for that dude more he has researched and put out articles for hours and hours. Now he will have nothing to show for it because of an error they made. It’s unbelievable and a terrible decison. Eat some money DK

  • mbmrang

    I agree with their decision. The term guarenteed applies to a fairly ran contest. If someone did change their lineup, then it was no longer fair. Wasn’t much choice on their part. Now the 10k free roll better have a decent payout structure. I may have picked the best lineup tonight but not next week in the free roll. Should even be larger with a decent payout structure honestly.

  • CityBoy410

    I hope the refunds come in soon, so i can put it into NFL tournaments tomorrow. lol
