What happened to all of the camps? I remember there were over 30 at one point in the heavy weights and even more in the light heavyies. Now there are less combined in SHW HW and LHW. Its not as fun competing against only 7 teams. Did membership for this website drop dramatically or is it just the camp thing?

At one point the inactive members for more than 30(or 60) days were all dropped from the teams by the mods.

There wasnt a decrease in camps, its just alot of inactive fight camps ended up dropping down in weightclass because the members on their team that didnt make picks were dropped.

Yeah, thats probably it. Maybe they should redistribute the camps within the weight divisions since the old numbers are no longer accurate.

I speak for all the camp leaders I'm sure ...


Its hard work to keep a large camp in tip top running shape

But well worth the effort when you see your camp at #1.

I noticed a little bit in the smaller ranks, most notably it took me some time to figure out that Grappling Dummies & Team KY Jelly decided to merge to form what is now The Ringers.

The JTWW is merely smashing our competition like James Thompson would do to a drunken Montreal crowd.

You'd better hope your fight camp isn't next!

And that is the story of how the greatest camp in the history of camps came to be

You guys had great timing, i had been trying to recruit Gannon and Npayant for a season and a half before this season started.

Camps are disappearing because they're afraid of Sabotage, Inc.

Yeah, that's it.

Seriously, though...things change on here constantly. Look for even more changes next season.

Yep alot of work for sure.


It is real sad to see how things have changed over a year.
You think the camps are smaller, look at all the camps with guys not even picking, its sad.
I wish there was some way for playground to dump people if inactive for 6 months.
I also would love more competition in LHW. Bring it!!!
