Fantasy Leaguers thoughts

Дата: 10.07.2015 16:43:55
Yoott: Hi Guys   I figured I could come in and shed some light on the I LOVE LAMP process and what happens in these situations.    All teams are required, under pretty severe penalties (monetary and personal account penalties) to "check in" on the day of matches (by 2pm pacific) directly to myself and give the go , no go to their team playing and or bring up any other potential issues that a team may have.
This happens in a lot of sports and isn't always apparent or shown but we have all seen last minute injury reports, prerace scratches of contenders, last minute withdrawals and match cancellations. 

This "check in" system is setup for this exact reason if a team does not make check in or notifies me that they can't make the minimum number of players they need per our rules then they automatically forfeit the match and we pull it from the air. I spent a few hours working with Lamp yesterday leading up to the check in time to see what we could do to assist them. At the end and at the deadline it was decided between myself and the team leaders that for last night we should pull the match and continue to move forward. The team does incur further penalties for this decision however it was in everyone's best interests and I believe the right call.    As soon as that deadline was reached, I know I gave the green light to go and start posting everywhere about it and on all channels that could be reached in time, including the forums, wotlabs posts, twitter, the fantasy league page itself, you will see that most of those posts happened right at the 2pm pacific mark. We also had Bad_co spamming the wglna twitch and battleviewer.com with this information for almost 3 hours up until matches started.    That is pretty much the best we can do in that situation.    As for the non Lamp or o7 guys you mentioned not playing, the teams have full control over who is playing in a particular battle right up until we start a prebattle 60 second countdown. This will not be changed, sure it stinks when you pick a guy and he doesn't play (happened to me the other night and I fell 40 spots, and I hear about it every day in the office since I am now not in first place) but that also is part of the game play of fantasy league. Many of the teams are and have been posting their lineups early either on the forums or on their own personal team twitters so I would keep an eye out for those. We have been encouraging this to happen from the teams so it will most likely continue.     Please understand it was in no way an attempt to "bamboozle" you, it is just something that can happen and did. I am sorry you lost the points on the night as did many others but it really is part of the fantasy gaming world and setup and sometimes these things happen.    Always feel free to reach out to me if you want to have further discussions as we are always looking for feedback and don't mind having a chat.    Thank You
