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

i like the PM rule. we should all try to make the effort, since it only takes a few extra seconds to do.

On paper, perhaps. It is important to consider that Faber won't fight for a while in a fight imo he will lose the same way as last time. Aldo has not been scheduled yet, nor has Shogun if I recall correctly (which I might not) along with Fitch (who will probably win his next fight but I don't think he has been scheduled). Some of these picks will be nearly useless if this game only lasts until the end of June. It will be interesting to see how it pans out, but I'm going to guess that the team with the best star power won't be #1 in the end, just like fantasy football.

I don't see a reason not to, because if this only lasts three months several big name fighters would be irrelevant for the entirety of the game. Since this game is more of a trial run that had about 5 seconds of planning put into it, I don't see anyone getting that upset about it. If it really is a big deal to everyone we can wait until the draft is over, but with some early round picks being on the card it would suck to not be able to count any of them and since there is no way to have prior knowledge of the outcomes nobody is getting the short end of the stick by starting.

I'll take Takeya Mizugaki.

With the time and effort invested we should run this much longer than June. Otherwise you're basically picking fighters for one fight.

Okay, the rules are pretty undefined. The game is only lasting 3 months? What happened to June 29th?

I just think it should've been stated at the beginning of the game so people could strategize accordingly, that's all. Finding out after the fact

As it is now... the guys who are fighting this weekend are a shoe-in to get points and guys that have been drafted (or have yet to be drafted) that still have training camps to go through aren't because they could potentially be injured, their opponents could be injured and the fight could be scrapped, etc.

I just think everyone is in too much of a hurry to get this thing going but I'm fine with it starting this weekend. None of my guys are even scheduled to fight until the end of April anyways. I'll just have to switch my strategy up now.

I would love to, but this may require some fine tuning and some people may wish to stop playing, so with the minimal effort it takes after the draft, people who don't like it can just casually glance at it and opt out at the set date. I don't want to lock people into something if they aren't completely on board.
prophecy033
2/23/12 3:34:32PM
I haven't been picking guys off this next card because I didn't think we would be done in time. I guess I didn't fully understand what was going on, that's why I've been going with guys that are already scheduled, not the best available that aren't scheduled

I dont mind if we start it this weekend or not, but Id rather see the game run from now till the end of the year, if people dont want to interact with the game then they just leave there team the same with out making changes, as long as your updating the points it wont matter, after the draft part is finished players wont have to interact much any way.

Can we have a vote to run the game until the last event of 2012?

If we can then I vote yes!

@Okay, the rules are pretty undefined. The game is only lasting 3 months? What happened to June 29th?

Math is hard, I am just approximating when I say 3 months since we are just about into March, I guess 4 months would be mroe accurate.


@I just think everyone is in too much of a hurry to get this thing going but I'm fine with it starting this weekend. None of my guys are even scheduled to fight until the end of April anyways. I'll just have to switch my strategy up now.
There is no problem with the end of April, you just won't have a chance to score points for a while. Like I said if people really don't want to start this weekend that is fine, but those who are a shoe in for points this weekend would be a shoe out (if such an expression exists) for points by June 29th most likely. I am certainly rushing it, I want to find out how well this game works and what would need to be changed or if it just sucks altogether. Also, I will clearly be biased for this upcoming event, I had hoped that we would have a reasonable enough number of fighters on our rosters to start at this point but at this rate we will still be drafting for at least 2 more weeks.

I just want this to be fun, so I want to reemphasize that if people in general do not want to start until the draft is completely finished, we can do that. I just think we are wasting an event with some fantastic fighters.

I'd vote yes to that. I was under the impression that it was until the end of the year.
