Can you at least use it for me if there is a change in my rank like last time


Like we stated earlier I feel 3 points only for picking winner totally devalues merit of picking winner


Pretty please Phone Post

I harken back to the event where I got 11 of 13 right but people who got like only half right where placing above me cause they got methods right it was comically askew in my book.

What happens to the contest now since Ring pulled out of his fight on the main card with Philippou and the fight was scrapped?

That's my point, the game isn't about who can guess the winner the best. 4 other got 11 right and many others got 10. Picking the round, method and bonus should weigh more. Phone Post

I respectfully disagree it's not about only picking winner's but devalue ing winner is not something I support either


You say 4 others got 11 right you do realize that like 40 played that event I was top 5 % in correct picks but that event I placed not even in the middle

That's crystal clear that your system big-time devalues getting the correct winning fighter right


At no point did I ever say only winner's count but frankly your scoring does devalue the merit of picking a winner

My system devalues picking the winner because that is the easiest pick with greater odds of guessing correctly.

Someone who picks more winners but less everywhere else should not score higher.

Don't worry about offending me, you have valid points and I appreciate the feedback. Phone Post

At least you are admitting it


Can we maybe reach a middle ground and have free events use the 2 spreadsheet system and ppv use only original system

Whatcha think


Is that plausible Phone Post

I just don't like having to use the time for all fights. What about just main card fights? Or have we already discussed using the "of the night" bonuses as tie breakers?

 

Sorry if this thread and the dealings with us is causing you any stress or time.

I thought about only using times on the main card, but I didn't want to inundate everyone with a ton of rules. You don't have to add the round times, but if you tie (1st, 2d, 3d place only) and the other person did, i will default to them. Phone Post

Subbed for later (my sister's helping me this time-she bases her picks on the guy's looks-which means we'll probably do well this time :)>

That's how I make my picks as well. Phone Post
