Shit, I didn't notice this at all. Unfortunately that means the 1st fight can't be used. Sorry about that guys. I thought the event was set for 4pm.

It won't bust your parlay. You'll be knocked down to a 2 man parlay or a straight bet depending on how many fighters you had in your parlay.

It was a two man on Gonzales/Johnson. It may as well be busted.

I had a 2 man parlay of Johnson & Gonzalez. Also, had a solo wager with a 10k payout on Gonzalez, as well as having him picked.

I don't see how this could get fucked up. I also don't see how it's fair. I think it would be more fair to scrap the whole wager portion. Why should I pay for someone else's mistake. I had huge money on him and was depending on that. I may go negative now.

I really think the most fair thing to do for everyone is cancel this event. I know it's only 1 fight but it can make a big difference in wagers and it does make a slight difference in picks too. Last season our team lost by 0.2, that 1 bout could make the difference in a situation like that.

Actually I'm in complete agreement with this.

I got screwed over by it too. Cost me a 100k single bet win and half of my parlay worth over 500k.

It's not the first time this has happened, it just happened to come on a fight where the odds were very good for the winning fighter.

Had Gonzales lost none of us would be upset by the scrapped fight at all.

It sucks that it affected so many people this time, but I don't think its worth scrapping an event over, especially not when we never scrapped the events any other time it happened.

What about the wager portion as QuicktoLynchYa suggested?

Looks like the three of us are in the same boat here.

I'm not sure if that is even possible, if it is only DotheMMAth would have the ability to do it.

I doubt it will be necessary though. Nobody gained any sort of an advantage due to the lost fight, the system is created to take into account mistakes like this, no contests and draws.

The only issue I see is in cases like ours where you had one of them in your parlay.

I doubled up on both guys in my parlay so that if one lost and the other won, i'd at least break even. With one of the fights gone a loss for the other guy would be devastating.

I'd at least like to see the wager portion cancelled, that's what's affected the most, especially for the people that were in the running for a badge.

In the future I'd strongly urge anyone who notices an incorrect lock time to PM me or any of the other mods in addition to making a thread on the forum. Most of us don't check the forum every time we log in, but I always check my PM's.
