New season of play begins in the MMAPlayground Secondary League
Posted by DoTheMMAth Tuesday, November 6, 2007 12:00 AM
Our first season of action in the MMAPlayground Secondary League has come to a close. Initially built as something to help pass the time between long UFC layovers, the Secondary League has far exceeded our expectations and become a vital part of the Playground. With so many talented fighters outside of the UFC now and an ever-growing MMA fan base, lots of these smaller organizations are really starting to put on some good shows. By making another league of play here on the site, fans are helped to get better acquainted with the fighters and promotions that may some day rival the UFC, or at the very least build up some quality talent that will eventually graduate to the UFC. The Secondary League is also good for those with short attention spans, as the 10 event season goes pretty quickly. Our first season saw some really good shows put on by the WEC, CageRage, EliteXC, StrikeForce, IFL, HDNet, and K-1 Hero's.
A big congrats to our top finishers: B_Goetz for winning the picks game, and Stickan for winning the wagers game. B_Goetz, at the time of this writing, is also in first place for picks in our Primary League as well, quite remarkable! Stickan already had a massive lead going into the last Secondary League event of the season, but still had the guts to risk it all again, resulting in widening his lead even more tremendously!
If you didn't participate in the Secondary League's first season, now is a good time to start! Your picks and wagers from the Secondary League do not affect your earnings, rank, or record from the primary UFC game here on The Playground. You have nothing to lose, it's fun, you have a chance to win real prizes, and following more organizations helps to widen your knowledge of MMA.
Changes for Season 2
We've made a few small changes for Season 2 in the Secondary League. First off, we've increased the bonus amount that is earned when you correctly predict a fight. By doing this, we've made it so that players that wager it all and have an early season "oopsie" will be able to get back onto their feet and into the wager race a little quicker than before. We've also tweaked our odds algorithm a little bit, so that underdog payouts have been slightly reduced.
That's all for now, best of luck to everyone in MMAPlayground Secondary League Season 2!
