Well, it's simple, YOU don't haha, dude I told you on the phone, mark "interested in joining a fight camp" on your My Playground. People that are looking to recruit will send you PM asking you to join their fight camp, or they will PM you asking you some question to see if you're a fit for their camp. Check out the camp but make sure it's a fit for you, as well. Make sure that their members are active and that they make their picks as well. Just as much as there's individual accomplishments the team counts, too.

If you want, dude, you can come over tomorrow after you pick up Javicito from school and I'll show you how it works or you can pick me up on Wednesday and I'll come over and show you the full gamut of the site, brother. Just make sure that the camp is a fit for you as well as you for the camp. I know you're a competitive dude when it comes to fantasy so I know you'll want to win. You need your teammates pulling their weight for that to happen unless you just want the individual accolades.

People might not be interested in you until after you've got a couple events on your record, that gives them an idea of how good a player you are when it comes to picks/wagers. There will be some camps that are willing to take you in, but they're not likely to be the more established camps that have been around a while.

Pretty much, Javier. I mean, you could get lucky and someone might be really nice and extend you an invite as a courtesy. Text me and I'll let you know if I've heard of the camp, sir. I'd hold out until like UFC 117 so people can get an idea of how well you pick and how much your making off your wagers.

Good luck man, welcome to the site.

They've pretty much pointed out that you'll have to wait a minute or so to get a camp invite, but keep posting and someone might like the way you think, and let you in one.

I know Sabotage takes people regardless if they have a good record or not.

You're part of the team on a trial basis. We've decided to do what other camps on the Playground do. Make all of your own picks and you get cut. You *must* pick the same winners that I pick. Argue with me? You're gone. Miss one fight? You're gone. Have a bad event? You're gone. It's our goal in life to win every season from here on out and to brag about it as often as possible.
