This is how it all works

The fighters used for this game will be anything for MMA fighters, to Boxers, TV Characters, Film Characters, Pro Wrestlers etc. Use your imagination its completely up to you. The categories will be:

Super
HW (no upper weight limit)
LHW/MW Merged
WW/LW Merged
FW (no lower weight limit) Merge BW and FLW
Females

Here is a description of each category:

Super

Go crazy, any body from film/TV, comics, computer games etc, that is a Non Human or who has super powers. They must be able to fight on land. (Jaws the shark is no good)

For the remaining categories you can rank who ever you want from the world of Combat sport or TV/Film etc, but they must be human with no super powers. Again, you can go mad and use your imagination.

Rankings, for this game to work we will need to do our own rankings within the categories. There will be an incentive to encourage everyone to do the rankings. Everyone will start with $1.4 Mill. There are 6 categories to rank. For every ranking you do you earn 1K. So as there is 6 categories with 100 positions in each you can earn up to 600K which would take your money up to $2 Mill. Everyone has 2 weeks to send me there rankings. Once you have submitted a category you can not add/or change that category. At the end of the 2 weeks we will start the game.

1. How each round works.

The fighters will be introduced. There will be up 20 fighters from each weight class added at the start of each round. There rankings will decide the wages that they earn when they fight.

Everyone will start with a Bank Roll of 1.4 million dollars plus the chance to have earnt an extra 600K. With your money you will need to sign a minimum of 10 fighters and be able to pay there wages for the first card. If a fighter doesn't fight he doesn't get paid.

For the first round of bidding every one will send me an email where they will bid for up to 10 fighters (it doesnt matter which weight classes your fighters fight in) no one else will know who you bid for. The bids must be in multiples of $1000 ( to keep it simple) and the minimum bid is $1000. If you bid for a fighter that you think no one else will bid for you could get him for $1000, but if he is a popular fighter then you will need to estimate how much you think you will need to bid, who ever bids the most will get him, if its a draw no one gets him and once again is back on the market and everyone can bid for him. After the opening rd of bids and once we have seen who has got who, we will then do another rd of bids where each player can bid for up to 9 fighters depending on what you need for your card, we will then do 8, then 7 right down to 1. Once we reach one bidding is then finished for this round.

Fighters wages will stay the same through out the game.

A players wage depends on his ranking, rank 100 will be paid 10k, every rank above will be paid 10k, for eg 100 = 10k, rank 1 = 1 mill.

We will then post our card, I will then copy and paste all the cards that were posted in the order they were posted into my own word document, we will then action one card at a time in the order they were posted, before I post the first card I will make sure they are within budget, I will then post 1 card, everyone will post there results for that 1 card except for the creator of the card ( you will not be voting on your own card) we will use the same format as The Ultimate Tournaments, so for e.g. Damian Maia v Ed Herman - Maia rd2 sub triangle choke Once everyone has picked for that card I will then update the fight card results and PM them to the card creator (not on the forum), he will then nominate is 1, 2 or 3 bonuses (KOTN, SOTN, FOTN) and send them back to me, also if there is any draws on the votes, either on the winner of a fight, or the rd, or method or technique the card creator will have the final say on that particular section. Once that's done we will then do the next card. We will continue this process and once I have all the fight card results and bonuses I will post all the completed card with results and bonus nominations. We will then vote for the bonuses and rank the cards. I will then post the results and the monies earned for that round.

After that is done I will do a financial sheet and then an updated balance so we can see how much money we all have.

You must have a minimum of 5 fights, which will be your main card, you can have a maximum of 10, any fight above 5 will be a prelim.

A Champion defending his belt will be paid double wages, some one can only challenge for a belt if they are on a 1 fight wining streak in you promotion, eg they cant fight for a belt on there promotion debut or coming off a loss.

Fighters can only fight in the category that they are ranked in, champions can not fight in non title fights.

After Rd 1 we will all put on 1 card, after rd 2 we will put on 2 cards, right up to rd 5, 5 cards, a total of 15 cards.

3. Champions Tournament

After Rds 2 to 5 we will do a Champions Grand Prix, (there is no champs after rd1 which is why I didn't include it) we will do every weight class. Each Tourney will be seeded and we will use the rankings that we use for the game, if you don't have a champion in a weight class then you can't enter that GP. We will vote for the fights the same way, but you wont be able to vote on a fight which includes your fighter (similar to the Ultimate Tournaments side game). We will do 1 GP at a time starting with Woman and working up to Super. There will be lots of money on offer in each GP.

This is how the money will work. Every time you fighter fights you pay his wages. Every time you fighter advances a round (whether he fought or not) they will earn 10% of the threshold (not in the final as they will earn the overall prize). The GP winner will earn 100% of the threshold. After the GP we will all vote on the KOTB, SOTB and FOTB (can't vote for your own fighter). For each vote received your fighter wins 10% percent of the threshold. The winner of each bonus wins 100% of the threshold.

We will then start the process again for the next GP.

4. Money

You will not be allowed to go overdrawn (the only time you will be overdrawn is if a fine takes you overdrawn), that's when you bid and also when you put your card together. This is what will happen if you go over drawn:

Bidding, if your winning bids come to more money then you have in the bank then all your bids for that round of bidding will be cancelled, (so to confirm you can bid more then you have, but you can't win more then you have, in other words its best to bid within your limits) and the fighter will go to the next highest bidder, (you wont lose fighters who you have previously bid for, just the ones who you bid for in that 1 email, but you wont receive a fine.

When you put your card together you must be able to pay all the fighters wages, I will check everyone's card before we pick winners and if you have over spent I will remove the lowest placed fight on the card, for every fight I have to remove you will be fined, also if you don't have a minimum of 5 fights then you will also be fined. For e.g., if I put on 6 fights and over spend by $200K, then 1 fight will be removed and I will be fined, if I am still over spent then another fight will be removed and I will be fined again, as that then drops me to 4 fights I will be fined a third time for not having 5 fights. The fine will be the threshold of that round.

The threshold for round 1 will be $1 mill, rd2 $2 mill up to rd5 $5 mill. You will earn money depending on how good your card is. After each round of cards and when all results have been picked we will vote.

Voting

Cards

Top vote earns you 100 % of the threshold down to 5th vote 00%, you must always rank your self 5th.

Bonuses

When you nominate your own bonuses you earn money, 3 bonues 100% of threshold, 2 bonuses 50%, 1 bonus 25%. For every vote you get (you cant vote on your own bonuses) you win 10% of the threshold. Who ever gets the most votes in each section will win 100% of the threshold or a share of it if the vote is a draw.

5. Trades and Roster

We will have a separate thread which we will use to keep are roster updated and also discuss trades. With trades you can either trade fighters for cash or other fighters. Please keep your roster up to date.

6. And finally, when you vote on cards and bonuses, please don't vote tactically. It makes the game better if we actually vote on how good the cards are.

The overall winner will be the player with the most money at the end of the game.

If anyone has any questions please post them on this thread and I will answer them.

fair warning. i may not be consistent w/ this, but i intend on giving some descriptions to a few of my votes. i will not be doing this to attempt to get more votes for my own cards, but mainly for my own amusement. w/ some, it will be self explanatory, but w/ a few, especially the Super category, i feel explanations might be necessary to explain the reasoning behind some of my votes.
