Well, I'd say it's better in some ways and worse in others. It is convenient to be able to make a wager anytime, without having to wait for it to be accepted, and to be able to go back and change things up if you change your mind about a wager. But you can't "shop around" to see if you can get better odds from anyone else, like you could with the old system, you just have to take what the house gives you.

Love it. No way to cheat the system now, so everyone is now on a level playing field.

i just liek to wager with friends if i can casue then you can rub it in when you win and when your watchign them you can be rubbing it in on them. but yews i think this way is fair but i would rather them not give real cash away for wagering and give more away for points and jsut have the cash jsut for fun like they had it. then who cares if someone cheats its not like its for anything. and there is no way to cheat in points and if you have a bad event in points you can still come back. with wagering if you lose all your cash or most of it in one event then you are out of it for the rest of the season. i just feel points are not as hard to come back from a bad event. makes it more even and more ppl will feel liek they are still in it to get into prizes if they gave stuff away to the top 25 in points then besides the top 10 in each.

Fantasy wagering will be much easier with this system.

I like the new changes because I don't have to constantly reject 4 to1 odds on fights anymore. It's going to be harder for people to cheat the system now.

I like it. Long term, I knew the p2p thing wouldnt work, although it was fun while it lasted.

Looks good so far... I'll reserve further comment until I see how it plays out after the first event
