It would make it better if it locked a few days before the event. But the reason I olay this game is to see how good I am at picking winners and comparing my score to others. Getting double points for one fight really does skew the results. I can't see why you would be a fan of something that throws the game out of wack.



I understand where you're coming from. I know you're not alone in thinking the hot bout should be nixed. To each their own.

i love the hot bout & i suck at picking it. it punishes & awards pickers based on how they pick the most disagreed fight of the event.

if it locked days in advance, & another bout was more closely picked, it would be pointless.

if you want it to lock early so you'll know which bout the HB is going to be & want to do more research on it, all you have to do a few days before the event locks is go to event stats for the site, pick the event & see which bouts are closely picked enough that might cause a switch in the HB & study those.

It would be nice if the "Hot Bout" was a Main Card fight or at least a fight that people care about. Most of the time it's 2 unknown undercarders making their UFC debut.

Theres too many god damn events and too many god damn injuries/last minute changes compared to when i joined the site. its gotten to the point where you have to constantly check to correct the replacements and all that shit.

I got tired of having to constantly check fight changes and getting booted from camps cause i wasnt keeping up with it

Now I spend all my waking minutes reading what you supremely intelligent folks have to say
