I was told that if members & the mods got behind changing the Fight Camp Weight Classes then it could be done so I created this topic & poll. I think it used to around 27 & more members made up the HW weight class, but it changed to 18 or more a few seasons ago. Id' like to suggest that it goes back to how it was or however the powers that be decide to do the specifics to make it a little more even in the amount of people competing for each badge. I counted the numbers for each weight class & there are way more people in the highest 2 weight classes, especially HW, which doesn't seem fair to me, but I could be wrong. Below are currently the number of people competing in each Fight Camp weight class.

LW (2-3) - 129
WW (4-5) - 105
MW (6-8) - 111
LHW (9-17) - 194
HW (18+) - 404

the reason they changed it was because the HW division was having 3 or 4 teams only, mainly due to the fact that the site get way less players than it was before.

Now the weight class are perfectly balanced, many teams per division and real challenge all season long.

And of course the HW Division get more players, 1 team of 20 equal 10 teams of 2 !!

Just remove BE Civil War and you drop by +- 100 players !!

MEMBERS:
LW (2-3) - 129
WW (4-5) - 105
MW (6-8) - 111
LHW (9-17) - 194
HW (18+) - 404



TEAMS:
LW (2-3) - 59
WW (4-5) - 24
MW (6-8) - 17
LHW (9-17) - 16
HW (18+) - 12


Looks about as evenly spread out as can be. The change was mainly to get rid of a division with 3-4 teams or so getting a badge and if the 12 team HW division was split again we"d instead have 2 divisions with 4 & 8 or 5 & 7 or if SHW wasn't brought back they'd all go to LHW making 5 HW & 23 LHW instead of 12 HW & 16 LHW. I don't see how any change making HW smaller when it already has the fewest teams would be good.

HW will always have the most members, I imagine there's a HW camp with more members than all WW or MW camps combined by themselves (just looked and BE Civil War & Mania1 have a combined 152 members between just their two camps. That doesn't mean making a 2 team SHW division of 50+ for them to balance out members per division numbers at HW would be wise since it'd just be a coin-flip for who would badge at SHW like it was right before the change). The measuring stick for a division shakeup is # of teams per division, not # of members (imo. And I think most, if not nearly everyone, would agree), and right now it's about as even as possible. Just my two cents.

The more weight classes the better, let the people fill them in and play the weight cutting game themselves, metaphorically ofcourse...

I always make sure to keep my comments clean, but there goes Project Mayhem proving again that the forum code of conduct rules don't apply to them with that over the top insinuation, but don't name call back or that'll get you banned.

Wow... It's a username... Not your actually name.
I'm pretty sure your username could be misinterpreted as a euphemism for penis so that's a bit of controversy anyway.

Thats a huge stretch JJeans, nobody could misinterpret my user name which is a common term. Say what you want in your camp forum or in pm's, but things need to be kept clean on the public forums that any potential advertiser might stumble upon. They see a guy whose location is "Ronda Rousey's guard" making vulgar comments like that & they might decide to take their business elsewhere.
