There is a lot of fantasy mma games going on at the moment and I am really enjoying them.

I have yet another idea:

For this game to work I will need 12 people ( inc me ) to take part. Those 12 people will then take it in turns to choose a fighter to place in to there fantasy 8 man grand prix. The picks will be done as a snake draft and the draft will be randomly decided.

There will be 6 weight classes: HW-LHW-MW-WW-LW-FW. The weight class that your grand prix will be will also be randomly chosen. 2 people will each have the same weight class. Womans MMA will not be included.

Fighters can move up a down 1 weight class as long as the move seems realistic. For eg HW that fight at 250lb will not make a LHW grand prix. Super HW fighters can be included in the HW grand prix. Fighters that fight at 2 weights or have recently changed weight can fight at either of those weights but not a weight either side of both those weight classes.

For eg

Anderson Silva can fight at LHW or MW, but not HW and WW.
BJ Penn can fight at WW or LW but not MW and FW.

Each person will have 12 hours to make there pick. If that is not done they will be skipped, but they can make there pick next time they log in, they dont have to wait until there next pick.

Once the draft is complete we will each compose our own 8 man grand prix. We will start with the QF and then play the grand prix out with you saying who would win each round until you have a winner.

For Eg

Fighter A v Fighter B A wins
Fighter C v Fighter D D wins
Fighter E v Fighter F F wins
Fighter G v Fighter H G wins

SF

Fighter A v Fighter D A wins
Fighter F v Fighter G G wins

Final

Fighter A v Fighter G A wins

People can then vote on what would have been the most exctiing Grand Prix.

Um...didn't your last fantasy game get shut down before it even started?

Maybe we should cool off for a bit.

The last draft has finished so i thought it would be ok to set up another one. it will only work if people want to do it though. If there is not enough responce it wont go ahead. Surely thats the fairest way to decide if we do a draft or not.

Its easy to keep track of. each thread has its own title and that relates to what is being discussed in the thread. Wether it be a game or a subject.

The fantasy UFC game i do was moved from one forum to another by one of the Mods but the thread is still active.

I dont know what other games you could be talking about, but if you let me know I can tell you were it is.

If I can get one more, I will reduce the draft to 10 and miss out the FW division.
Rabi

I gonna go ahead and start the game with 9. If someone else decides to join before we do the first round of picks then they can join in as player 10 and have what ever weight class is left. I will do the draw for picks and weight class shortly.

Nobody else has responded, so I don't see why it would be a problem for Wolfenstein to take the final spot.

You're up if so.

Also, I think we should clarify right now weather or not it's a rule that the cards are to stay anonymous.
Rabi

Wolfenstein, you are up. Im not bothered about them staying annonymous. I will go with the majority.
