With all the talk about how to run the second season on here, I thought I'd ask if you used to make fantasy picks on UFC.com and if so, did you like their system? They had a system similar to the set up here but it also allowed you to pick the minute of the ending in the round you picked. They also had a special bonus for picking the time left on the clock of the main event.

I think guessing the time of the finish involves to much guess work. Guessing it down to the minute doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I really enjoy the game the way it is set up now.

This should be moved to "Fantasy Game Talk."

i used to do ufc fantasy and i liked it alot but i like mmaplaygrounds system much better. it always seemed to me that there was more luck involved than logical picking, for instance u couldnt pick just ko/tko or submission but u had to pick what kind of ko/tko or submission (armbar, choke, kneebar, ko punch, ko kick, ect...) which made fights like chuck vs sobral hard because u knew chuck would win by ko/tko and sobral would win by submission but what type? and the whole "gues what minute thing" made it overly complicated too. i like things the way they are here but i wish they would add more hot picks to some events.

Agreed. This system is much better.

I did like how you could specifically say how you thought it would end. you could choose what type of submission etc..

Me2. I was kinda ticked at them when they stopped it suddenly. Judging by how well the sites doing, they made an error.

i actually liked the ufc fantasy picks.... i found it more fun and made u think more about the fights and look them over again every once in a while with the minute picks and kind of submission.

But if mma playground keeps this system working i will be just as happy.
