RULES

 

General 

  • Format: Double elimination bracket tournament. 

  • How to PlayParticipants in a match up take turns choosing a fighter who they think will win. Their opponent gets the other fighter in that fight by default. When one of your fighters wins, you get a point. The user with the most points at the end of the card wins.
    EXAMPLE OF A TEXTBOOK MATCH UP

  • Where to Play: When match ups are set. The poster who has first pick will make a thread in the MMA section of the forums, where picks will be made. There is no penalty for making the thread if you have second pick. This is encouraged if progress is dragging.
     

  • TiebreakerThe opponent with second pick chooses one fight to be a tiebreaker bout. This bout does NOT have to be a bout the poster personally selected.  The poster's number 1 pick is their tiebreaker by default unless otherwise specified.

    Editing PicksYou should NOT edit your pick posts for ANY reason. If you are discovered having done so to gain advantage, you will be ejected from the game. Changing your pick for any reason (other than the above mentioned replacement fighter rule) is not permitted. Once a fighter is selected, it stays.

Special Circumstances

  • Replacement FightersIf a fighter pulls out from a card and that bout is already selected then the poster who selected that fight has the option to change their selection (if a replacement fighter has been issued). If they fail to do so they will keep their selection (if the opposing fighter pulled out) or acquire the replacement fighter (if they selected the fighter who pulled out). 
     

  • Cancelled FightIf a fight is cancelled and the bout is already selected, the poster who selected it does NOT get a makeup pick. The exception being if a pick is made, that bout is scrapped and your opponent has not made another pick yet. If the tiebreaker fight is cancelled, the player's next pick is used by default unless specified.

  • No Contests/DrawsNo contests and draws do not count as a win or a loss. 

  • Post Event Result Changes: Fight results are considered locked at the end of the fight card, and will only be changed in the event of a mistake corrected that night (such as a miscalculated scorecard). If a fight is overturned by the commission at a later date, the fight night result will stand.

  • (NEW) Bout Shuffle: If two bouts are shuffled after all picks are submitted then the posters retain the fighters they choose originally. Ie- two potential bouts on a card such as Fabricio Werdum vs Derrick Lewis and Walt Harris vs Mark Godbeer. Come fight night Lewis sustains an injury and the UFC decides to cancel the Harris/Godbeer fight and instead add Harris to the main card to fight Werdum. If poster A selected Werdum originally and poster B selected Harris originally, they retain these fighters going into the match. If poster A selected Werdum AND Harris originally, he can clarify who he wants before the fight card starts, otherwise whoever he picked first will be used as his pick. Lastly, if only the injured/canceled fighters were picked originally (in this example, Lewis & Godbeer), then the new created bout will not count.

My Opponent Won't Make His Picks!

  • Uncompleted MatchesIf a match is in danger of not being completed, players should submit their picks to the commissioner in the order they feel most confident via private message. If only one poster has submitted their picks, that poster will win. If neither poster makes the effort to submit their picks by PM, the score of the picks that were made will be used. If no picks were made, the poster who the commissioner feels made the most effort in participating will win (created match thread, inquired in tournament thread, etc). However, winning an incomplete match without submitting picks via PM incurs penalty. 
    EXAMPLE OF PICKS SUBMITTED WITH CONFIDENCE ORDER 

     

  • Penalty for Winning Incomplete Match Without Submitting Picks Via PM: if you won your match but were too lazy to take one minute to submit your picks in a PM than you your opponent will have first pick and tiebreaker choice in your next match!

  • Completed Matches by PMIf both posters have submitted their picks via PM, the match goes ahead with the commissioner organizing the picks based on confidence order. The commissioner will make a thread showcasing where the picks fell. The match will be posted after weigh-ins. The tiebreaker fight will be the poster’s number 1 pick by default but he can change this in the match thread if desired.
    EXAMPLE OF MATCH COMPLETED THIS WAY

 

How 1st Pick is Allotted

Opening Round

  1. Random Draw 

2nd Round, Quarter Finals, Semi Finals

  1. Poster with fewest advantages so far
  2. Best correct pick %
  3. Total points acquired
  4. Most positive performance awards
  5. Random Draw

Finals

  1. Winner's bracket player gets choice of first pick/tiebreaker
  2. If a rematch is necessary, the loser bracket finalist gets advantage

ETIQUETTE

Below are some examples of good and bad game etiquette.

Schedule

Good - If your schedule is limited or life is going to get in the way and you believe you may not be around much, tell your opponent!

Bad - Register for the tournament and then completely disappear.

 

Thread Creation

Good - Creating the match thread as soon as possible lets your opponent know you are aware. No need to wait for your opponent to do it for you. If you are online, create the thread.

Bad - Not creating the match thread at all.

 

Match Thread

Good - Putting the fight card in the OP and updating it after picks are made.

Bad - Not putting the fight card in the OP causes confusion on what fights are available and what picks are complete.

 

When To Make Picks

Good - The sooner the better. Generally, the beginning of fight week gives you everything you need (enough time to complete the match, card is finalized, bout order is determined, and odds are available if you're a filthy casual)

Bad - Waiting until after weigh-ins to start making picks. This is unrealistic and ridiculous. The only time this is acceptable is when you have 1 pick left and your opponent is completely done making picks.

 

Submitting Picks To Commissioner

Good - Any time you submit picks to the commish in a PM, it's a good thing. They will be used if your opponent does not complete their match. You can also authorize the commish to submit the next pick in line if you will be away for a bit.

Bad - Not submitting picks when your match isn't completed. Or submitting picks while the card is underway.

 

Submitting Grievances/Drama

Good - Accepting the commissioner's ruling on a dispute and moving on.

Bad - Not giving up on the issue for pages and pages on end.

 

Behavior/Trash Talk

Good - Trash talk is acceptable. Opponent's performance, picks, and favorite fighters are all up for bashing grabs.

Bad - Behaving in a way that prevents the match from being completed. ie - stating you will intentionally not make picks or using stall tactics

Doug won my last tournament......it just doesn't sit well. Lets do one more. This one is a double elimination tournament since we all feel screwed over when getting eliminated.

 

With no FH and Cole (alter ego BEG is fine) to cause drama, plus like 9 events in November, we can squeeze one in and I hopefully won't want to go full freddie.

 

REGISTRATION OPEN UNTIL SEPT 29TH,

MATCHES ANNOUNCED ON THE 30TH

FIRST EVENT IS CONOR VS KHABIB! OCT 6

 

 

Rule Changes

First pick/tiebreaker choice is no longer on the table until the finals! 1st pick only will be offered instead accordingly.

 

Penalty for Winning Incomplete Match Without Submitting Picks Via PM: if you won your match but were too lazy to take one minute to submit your picks in a PM than you your opponent will have first pick and tiebreaker choice in your next match!

 

Register below! Any questions, fire away.

I see myself as the Chuck liddel of this game. Had a decent run a while back but carried on long past my best and suffered a string of embarrassing defeats before finally retiring for good.

 

We all know what chuck's gone and done though...

i got f*cked out of that tournament royally  thanks to andywang stealing all of my picks, and the referee stopping the fight and ruling it a tko when sabah homasi was literally just shooting for a takedown!  that was the deciding fight in our round and i got the montreal screwjob, thanks to referee incompetance.  i dont think i'll ever be totally over that.

 

f*ck herb dean and f*ck andywang. bunch of filthy c*ckroaches.

haha you can blame the new era and these fight night cards filled with fighters no one has ever heard of. At least that's what I tell myself since I am a quintessential gatekeeper in these tournies.

 

Didn't you and Oz win that last tag team one? Maybe Chuck just needs a Robert Whittaker he can tag in from time to time lol.

Exactly, we all have one of those elimination stories. Hopefully we get a good round number and can do the double elimination. It only extends the tournament one round or so which won't be too bad.

I think an opening round of NoCake Vs Crangs in the ultimate 'clash of cans' match could be even bigger!

crangs actually won one of these things not long ago and became legend. But then he let the wealth and fame go to his head. A few drug binges later and he was forgetting matches, killing hookers, and going full Jon Jones. :(

Am I allowed to use Wikipedia in this thing? I watch about 15% of fight cards and know about 0.15% of fighters. I'm gonna be throwing WILD guesses left and right.

 

Of course, use wiki, sherdog, bestfightodds. No one knows who half of these fight card cans are now m8.
