Just the camp badges, it is why anyone in a fight camp competes for it.

It actually would be nice to have more than 2 SHW camps. With how many people are signing up lately, if someone or a few people who have been here for a while started one or two or three and they all started recruiting the newcomers to the site, it would greatly increase the chance that the noobs keep coming back and becoming a part of the PG and venture into the forums. And there are enough people not in camps missing out on the entire fight camp discussion experience and camp-specific side games, etc. That and SHW would no longer be a coinflip for a badge.



Being in a larger camp does have its advantages and disadvantages. We have less opponents compared to the other divisions which makes winning first place more feasible. However, if you think about it - the larger the camp - the harder it is to have a good run and pull away from the other large camp. Unlike ECP, if your smaller camp has a good run, you can actually pull away or if your opponent has a bad run, you can actually pull away. We can't do that against Bloody Elbow. Whether we have a good run or not, it will be a close race all the way to the end and the winner will only be separated by a few points.

In the smaller camps, the gap between 1st place and last place is probably huge. In small camps, each member's points weigh more whereas in larger camps, each member's points weigh less and will continue to weigh less as the camp becomes larger.

I guess what I am trying to say is: We have more members but we are earning less per member which translates to us having to work more as a team. For smaller camps, you are earning more per member and the smaller the camp becomes the more impact a single member can make.

If ECP took first place, it is because everyone played a vital part. If a smaller camp took first place, you can say the camp did well as a team or you can even say so and so in our camp helped us tremendously by making very good picks and wagers.




Not even close, its one reason as I said before why ECP ran to the SHW division

you don't either there Shawn. Pure speculation on your part. Maybe you should just keep your mouth shut about our camp. You're the only one that seems to have a problem, let's us all know were on your mind

That applies equally to yourself. There is nothing wrong with some good natured ribbing now and then but when a person constantly puts down a camp (like you do) at every opportunity it just means you're being a dick. I know you have some history with ECP but you have moved on to a different camp, don't you think it is about time you left the bad attitude behind you as well?

The SHW division had one camp before ECP moved up, would you rather see a camp win an accolade by default for being the only camp in the division or see two camps compete for the top spot?

Well he did make a call out thread and I didnt take that too seriously so all the good natured ribbing I am all for it. It doesnt make someone a "dick" to rib other camps, its whats stated right on the front of the Fight Camp Central forum. You keep chalking it up to a bad attitude but it seems you guys are getting hurt over it, not me. If Tuvok was allowed to post Id rib his camp as well.

Did that 1 camp gloat they won a badge for being the only camp in the SHW division?
