Nice try Trevail, I like the way you have made it easier for players to see what fighters have been picked. Now that the majority of top fighters and Champions have been picked ( bar GSP) would it be a problem to maybe picking two fighters per pick ? once the current pick has ended on the last man, it may quicken the game up a wee bit


Nice trevail.
I would like the idea of picking two at a time but when would we start?

i vote against.....
i know this might take a bit, but the person who gets the last shot at picking 2 fighters is going to get hosed big time. i say we stick w/ one at a time

Seconded. Had the game started out that way, I wouldn't be opposed. We all knew going in that it was going to be a long process. I say we stick with how it's being done now.

I agree. It's not like everyone isn't aware that we are trying to get this done. If anything we should either shorten the time limit, or add a penalty like a -2 point deficit for missing a turn or make it that you can't make up your missed pick until your following turn. This way it hurts the guys that miss their turns rather than those that are last to pick.

thirded? But yeah, I don't like the idea of switching when we're already half way through this.

I wouldn't be opposed to changing the time limit, though. In 2 days, I think we've made a total of 5 picks?

Cut time limits in half? I realize we all have busy lives but >12hrs to pick a fighter is kind of pushing it. If people are waiting on making their picks and already know who they want they can just pm them to me and I will post it for them.

I don't really care for changing the time limit. Let's say someone picks a guy an hour after I go to bed and I sleep 8 hours. When I get up, my windows been closed for an hour. I'm against it

For the most part, I agree. My main issue is with having to wait on the same people over and over. Especially when they're actively posting elsewhere in the forums yet not making their picks in the game forum, which happens quite a bit.

A point penalty would only effect those that are taking too long without any adverse effects on those of us that are paying attention.

My issue with the point penalty is that people in different time zones can get screwed
I would just rather people pm me several picks ranked in order of importance in advance so we could avoid an issue altogether

yeah, those assholes. I know I'm one of those said people, I apologize to you personally for making you wait. I haven't been paying close enough attention. I'm gonna start subscribing to hopefully combat that

damn it Sparky!

I too am opposed to changing the time limits. I currently work 11h shifts, plus 40-45 min commute each way 3x a week, so thats almost 13h away. I could miss both my picks in that time if I happen to be working that day (where I get no internet access). And as Prophecy said, a normal sleep period can also screw you. Keep it as is

I agree, too, gents. I'm on 16 hour shifts Friday, Saturday and Sundays, and tens the rest of the week. I typically come home and check the site, but once in a while, I crap out when I get home. I'll try to be more on top of it.

Okay, bad idea, how about once you have made your selection, you then PM the next player in line to let them know it is there turn to pick, if they are on the site, then they have no excuse. Actually I am sure someone came up with that idea earlier in the thread
