Just like Chiesa vs Smith shouldn't be worth more than Marquadt vs Lombard, the hot bout makes one bout worth more than the rest, it throws the game off IMO. You could have picked way better than someone else throughout the season, but they get the hot bout more often and they'll have a higher score.


I was using that point to show the imbalance of fight cards. The HB is there to signify the closest "50/50" fight on the PG.

I too am in favour of locking the HB earlier...I say something like 24h before the event locks

I agree with hot bout lock time. 48 hrs before main event is what I think it should be.
As far as scoring. I do agree with the rest here. It is fine as it is now.

I agree with the idea of locking the hot bout earlier than it currently locks.

I'm against all the other changes...the games scoring is great as is.



This pretty much sums up my thoughts too.

I disagree with literally any changes to the scoring system. I really don't care if the Hot Bout changes thirty seconds before lock.

I don't like this idea, but I do like the idea of the hot bout being a main card fight.

Just adding from my previous post of voting No on there being a difference in points.

I'd say if we decide to lock the HB early we should make it a consistent, say 24 hrs or 48 hrs etc. But if the HB isn't locked it wouldn't bother me though. It's not like it's gonna change the way I choose my method and round.

I also like for the HB to come from the entire card. If a person is unsure of their HB pick they could ask a camp member, google some fight predictions, or even take the betting favorite. It's not like it would be a total flip of the coin on a UFC fight, come on.

Thanks for all the feedback. If the voting keeps going this way it looks like we won't be changing it.

Because it was already done, I copied the job that sets the hot bouts from the dev server as that version stops updating which fight is the hot bout at 48 hours away from lockout.

So in summary:

- hot bout for UFC cards now limited to main card fights
- most likely not changing main card UFC fight point values
- hot bout now locked in place 48 hours before event lockout

No, due to reasons already stated and the fact that it undermines all fighters on the undercard. I personally would like 2 hot bouts and if you happen to get both correct, your hot bout score doubles just like in bowling.

The only other change I would recommend is maybe having an undercard hot bout as well as a main card hot bout.

I disagree with this and having the main card be the only fights for a HB. I don't see the point in having 2 hot bouts and why limit the HB to only 5 or 6 fights? It makes it too easy for people to hit imo.
