so it's 30-5 in favor of at least adding WEC in some way. Is this something that's going to happen mods?

Everyone on this site has access to these forums, but I realize that only a small percentage are active posters.

They should send out a mass-email to everyone with a link to this thread (or another like it), asking for input.

Make everyone aware of the possibility of adding the WEC. If they don't vote and aren't aware that WEC was added, too bad for them.
If the vote goes for NO, that's cool too. Majority rules.

I'll be happy either way. I'd just like to get more more input. If the majority wants just UFC and PRIDE, fine. I want more.

Also, now that PRIDE seems pretty much dead and buried, something needs to be added to replace it. I don't care if I have access to watch the live fights or not, I want an event to pick at least every two weeks. WEC, EliteXC, the occasional BodogFights, whatever it takes. 50 days between events is just too long.

Yes! Please, everyone voted yes on all polls for more events other than UFC/Pride in Season 2, and they still need to add em up, not only will it spice it up and make it more interesting, but it would satisfy alot of the true hardcore fans deeper into MMA like myself.

well i think if they do add it they need to wait till season 3 now. now with how much cash is on the line it's not fair to change rules during a season. yes i know they did it first season but that was a test run for them and they let us know that. so it's only fair they keep things how they had it and maybe change it next season.

We're working on something related to this as we speak No guarantees as to when (or IF) we'll have something for ya, but we're attempting to piece together a secondary league... stay tuned!

I had a few ideas regarding the WEC and other orgs. Minor orgs and some major events should not count toward the game and season, but the mods should select some fights so the players can pick them and they will get added to the players career record and not there season total. The reason is they might have events on the same day or very close and the new betting schema makes that problematic. Maybe we can pick IFL winners, the main card for the Bodog PPV, Big WEC matches, EXL, Cage Rage, and/or Hero's. The mods can pick which matches are worthy. If they events in the game are to close together your participation for the events will drop.

I think we are safe adding the WEC to the game because it is Zuffa owned, but the UFC might have a PPV on the same night as another org that they want to wipe out. The money portion of the game would be hurt by having two events on the same night.

Wait until season three. No more changing stuff up in the middle of a season. Remember last season, that went over like a fart in church.

I don't get VS so I don't get to see much WEC. I have been thinking about uping my dish package so I can So I say no not this season but that s only because
the only WEC Info I get is on the net. Next season would be fine. Maybe do a trial this season that means nothing just gives an Idea of what could be coming.

To me it dont really matter...if you dont want to pick a certain fight then you dont have to pick it..altho it hurts not being able to get max points..i think its fine with just the UFC events though..i get VS and ION i catch the bodog ifl and wec fights sometimes..but working and having a life outside of watching MMA is important too..ive seen Karalexis and a few others fighters who have been in UFC before fighting on there...i agree tho if your gonna add something WEC..or if not putting the whole cards up..you could just put up the Main card events for some other orgs..i mean it wouldve been cool to bet on Fedor Vs Lindland or Shamrock Vs Baroni...Gracie Vs Saku....those individual fights wouldve been cool to wager on make picks on...But after August 25th...its gonna be madness
