percentages would probably be more fair. I think the advantage swings a little more toward the people with less money in that case, because someone with 1k can wager 100% of his bankroll with very little downside, whereas a guy with 100k will be putting his season / camp ranking in serious danger by wagering 100% of his roll.

I think it will be more fair than by dollar amount though and has less potential for abuse. It might also be a little better to give people with less money a slight edge anyway, because if you assume that the person with less money is worse at wagering, it isn't totally unfair to give the better wagerer a slight handicap to even the odds to a certain degree.

Definitely good points. I was considering these factors. My only issue is, if we went by percentages, that would almost be like punishing the players who may historically be better at wagering, and this game was essentially made for them. Well, that and to have another fun yet challenging side game! I would almost rather make it hard than simplify it. It may encourages some to get better in wagers too!

I really would love to get a vote from as many contestants as possible as to their preference. Ultimately, myself and Rabi will make the final call, but the extra insight never hurts

Kingsmasher - check out Rabi's MMA Playground, also in the sidegames forum. The brackets, rank and scoring will be very similar

Alright folks! Just about two days in to signups, we already have 17 players. Hopefully we can end up with 30 or 40 before the game starts. If you know any users who may want to play, feel free to send out pm's, or post a link in your camp forums.

We are at 19 players right now. I am going to close sign ups when we hit twenty. Here's how things are going to break down...

We will have two divisions of ten, everyone will go head to head over nine events . Since this is the first season, I wanted to do something different to crown the inaugural champion. The winners in the two divisions will go head to head in the tenth and final event of Season 12 to determine the champion of the first season.

The divisions will be created randomly, and after the first season, people will be promoted or demoted depending on their standings. All future champions will taken from what will be Division 1.

I think this will be a fair way to do the first season. Anyone can win, and your performance this season will determine which division you end up in next season. It's all random now, but season two will have the divisions sorted by rank this season, and all newcomers will fill out additional brackets and have to work their way to becoming champion through promotion.

Hopefully this redundant and poorly thought out explanation makes some sense! Good luck during Season 12 everyone, and good luck in your quest to become the first "King of Cash".

nice "random" brackets there pmoney. LOL!

So have you decided on dollar amount or percentage? Personally I think percentage is the better way to go.

Whoa there! If you are insinuating these brackets aren't random, I can post the link for the bracket generator. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am neither smart nor ambitious enough to even fix a game for myself or anyone else. Also, look at my wagers history! It should be obvious I made this game for the community, not myself lol.

Having said that, I decided that straight up per event earnings will be the basis of the scoring per round. I feel earnings and percentages both have their pros and cons. In the end, I just feel earnings is more simple. The playing field is level to start the season, and as we all know... You can lose it all at anytime.

Also, even if someone has a gargantuan bankroll, say $250,000... If they wager $10,000, $100,000, whatever, and they lose, that person who just decided to ride with their prediction bonuses beat them.

I hope that method of scoring doesn't change your, or anyone elses, interest level in the game. I'm doing this Big John McCarthy style: I want a good, clean sidegame!
