Had an idea for a new one, thought I would see if there was enough interest to get this one going. Probably wait till either December or start of the year to get it going since the Prediction League is just starting again.

 

RULES

 

1. Players select one unranked fighter from every division (I will probably exclude Women's Flyweight and Featherweight since I don't know if they will be fully up and running by then and there isn't really enough depth yet.)

 

2. No picking fighters who are already currently ranked at a weight class and are away to move up or down to another.

 

3. After the initial process of selecting your fighters you can recruit one new UR fighter every week.

 

4. Winners will be decided by who's chosen contenders can rise highest in to the UFC rankings. They will be measured firstly by who can get the most fighters in to the rankings, secondly by the combined lowest total of all your rankings and thirdly if still tied by who has the single lowest ranked fighter.

 

Example

 

  • For example lets say its Bubba vs. Juice in the final game this will decide the winner and Bubba and Juice have both ended up with 5 ranked fighters.
  • Bubba's fighter's are ranked 4th, 8th, 10th, 11th and 15th. While Juice's fighters are ranked 1st, 2nd, 15th, 15th and 15th. Both Bubba & Juice would have a score of 48.
  • Juice would be declared the winner as his highest ranked fighter is above Bubba's.

 

 

 

Not sure if this has been done before just thought it would be an interesting idea since everyone will start on equal footing.

 

It could offer some interesting tactics as well because choosing someone like Mike Perry even though he's very likely to crack top 15 shortly could take longer with such a stacked division like Welterweight.

 

But people could probably sneak in new ranked fighter at divisions with less depth like Flyweight or Light heavyweight.

 

 

 

 

Just looking to get numbers now see if enough people are interested?

Yeah initial draft since we will have to make 10 different picks I was going to say I'm open to suggestions to keep the draft as fair as possible.

Had a few ideas of just randomising the list of however many names we get and just using that but that could easily give a few people an unfair advantage of picking first.

What so rank us per division and we take in turns to draft fighters? Can we pick suspended fighters or fighters we might think will change weight class but are ranked in their previous weight class

Im going to work on something to make the draft as fair as I can. Thinking of just generating a random list of the names then editing that list for each draft so most haver a chance of picking first or second sort of thing.

The initial draft will be just one fighter from each division. After that you can draft whatever UR fighter you like once a week.

 

You are free to pick fighters moving up and down and weight as long as they do not currently feature in the top 15 of any weight class.

 

No fighters who are suspended will be eligible to use. Pretty sure Machida was still ranked in the top 15 when he was suspended even though he didn't get dropped right back in to the rankings when he returned it could produce some unfair advantages.

Lets say that everyone of those letters stands for a poster, that's how I planned on doing the draft. I think there will be too many permutations to make it so that everyone gets to go first but I will try and make it even as possible. That's' the best way I can really think to do the draft happy to hear other recommendations though.

 

Also those wont necessarily be the order in which division are chosen as I will randomly select the division as well.  

 

 

Flyweight Draft

1. A

2. B

3. C

4. D

5. E

6. F

7. G

8. H

9. I

10. J

 

Bantamweight Draft

1. J

2. I

3. H

4. G

5. F

6. E

7. D

8. C

9. B

10. A

 

Featherweight Draft

1. E

2. D

3. C

4. B

5. A

6. J

7. I

8. H

9. G

10. F

 

Lightweight Draft

1. F

2. G

3. H

4. I

5. J

6. A

7. B

8. C

9. D

You've missed a couple things imo and Ive some suggestions if you don't mind.

- For how long is this game? it has to be a year at least or a neverending game.
Based on points or time?

- Rewards for activitiy

- Bonuses for knocking an enemy contender off the ranks.

- I would give all ranks a specific # of points #15 = 1 Point, #1 contender = 15pts that gives your game a base. Points go into the player rankings.

- So basically I would make this a points game instead of a time based game.

I hope that helps.

I won't join, I think. Maybe next season.

I'm not the best… I just believe that I can do things that people think are impossible.


And at least I am no former Junkie that is all that matters.

The game has been virtually over for a while.

Unless Oz has started his 20 or so fight win streak, that is.. But hey, it's good to see you watched how well it went without you.

Sorry never really stated a lot of that.

 

1. I Intended to run the game for the year. I was debating a shorter timeframe but when the game is trying to find the new guys coming in to the top 15 I think that will need a good bit of time.

 

2. Unsure of giving any actual awards for just activity. Think most will need to be active using their pick most weeks to try and pick up new potential top15 guys. Not being active will result in you having a smaller pool of fighters and a lower chance of

 

3. Was thinking of a few sub-categories for that. These wouldn't effect your direct score of the game but I know everyone likes to know how they are doing against everyone else.

 

Greg Jackson Award - Most wins

 

The Let Me Bang Bro Award - Most finishes

 

Bragging Rights Award - Most wins against other posters (Beating another posters fighters permits you a second pick that week, the pick must be made the week after the win and these bonus picks cannot be saved for a later date.)

 

Khabib's Injured Eating Tiramisu Award - Most fighters pulled out injured

 

King of the Cans Award - Most fighter losses

 

These sub awards will be awarded individually at the end of the year along with the main game award.

 

4. Didn't want to just directly copy scoring from other games so tried to make it a little different. The person with the most ranked fighters wins, if they are equal with someone else then its the combined lowest score of there ranked fighters, if still equal its the person who's fighter is closest to the number 1 spot. Was also thinking if some new star comes in and gets a massive push right away it could make the game go stagnant quite quickly, so this way the game will always be open to change and someone wont be able to cost with a single 1st ranked fighter.

I also have Brunson, OSP, and Werdum. So right now, Oz only needs about 16 straight wins between now and then end of the year, and then he can win.
   
Facts are facts, kid. I know you can argue for years on the internet with the same people who don't like you, but you can't argue with facts.

I wasn't even talking to you. Ozs comment was just clear confirmation for me.

You're playing the game with 5-6 guys all the OGs have jumped off months ago except for Juice who sucks at the game. You and I can say that often enough have a problem with accepting reality. I would call you a cheater too for not updating it but I don't care enough to go into he thread and open the eyes of "your" 5 players who are left.

Let that sink in. Sorry Joll but that chump just has to beef there is no other way he can play games without beefing.
