We have explored and tested every possible solution and it is clear that the nature of the issues leave us with a single, necessary action to get the game back on track and ensure the integrity of the season.So basically instead of being able to truly fix the issues, they're going to wipe out all the stats from the first 10 days of the season, set your roster back to where it was on April 1st, and then retroactively apply the stats. Any adds, drops, or trades you might have done since then are basically lost forever, which utterly sucks.
Late on Wednesday night the ESPN Fantasy team will:
1) Revert all teams to their opening day rosters (Sunday, April 1). 2) Set the starting lineup of each team's opening day roster as the active roster for all games played to date (April 1 - April 11). 3) Retroactively apply scoring for the entire season to date based on that roster. 4) Void all transactions to date (trades, waiver pickups, roster moves, etc.).
Following these changes, all players not on a roster will be placed on waivers for 24 hours, and the waiver order for each league will be restored to where it was on Opening Day.
Through extensive testing, this solution - while extreme - has repeatedly shown to restore the game to full and normal operation.
Did you pick up a hot, undrafted player like Ian Snell on April 2nd and get him in your lineup for 2 solid starts? Well too bad for you, those never happened, and now you probably wont get him back as he'll go into general waivers and if you dont have the waiver priority to get him, you can pretty much kiss him goodbye.
The kicker to the email was this following paragraph:
We are sorry to have to make such an aggressive change, and fully recognize the impact this will have. This action was our only option because of the nature of the issues and their potential to compound if not addressed on a fundamental level. Ensuring the integrity of the season ahead for ALL players is tremendously important to us and this solution ensures that all players will be treated equally.Isn't it already too late to maintain the "integrity of the season?" Hasn't that basically already gone out the window? I mean if on April 2nd you benched a guy who wasn't playing and inserted a guy who hit a home run or stole a base that day. Those stats are gone now, and you KNOW someone's league is going to come down to 1 HR or 1 SB. Imagine losing your league like that? It's a good thing no one plays Fantasy Baseball for money or anything serious like that, but hey, they're giving us free fantasy football teams in the fall! in prize leagues no less, where you can like, win a t-shirt or a banner! Yay!!!
