  3. Yeah, @Vlad, any chance CK gets unbanned? I know he isn’t as active in the game as he used to be, but he’s always got something to say, whether it be good or bad. He’s been a key contributor to these forums and I think he’s been away long enough.

  4. *The stage in the auditorium is dimly lit with spotlights, and celebratory banners. The alumni sitting in the front row, are backdropped by the rest of the crowd quietly waiting for the event to begin. Rock music begins to play, as a well dressed grey haired man in his early 40's steps up to the podium and smiles with a nod. The music slowly fades out, and he begins to speak.* "Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed Savage faculty, and especially the fierce warriors of The Savage Scholarship class of 2023, My name is Dan Daniels. I have been given the great honor to officiate this evenings ceremony, and I stand before you now, with both admiration and awe of the achievements of the men sitting in front of us here tonight." "First, let me say: You’re not simple graduates. You didn’t spend your college years huddled over textbooks in a quiet library. No, no... You were in the gym, sweat pouring, muscles tearing, and determination etched into every fiber of your being. You’ve been mastering the art of combat, honing your skills, and preparing for the ultimate showdown —the octagon." "As we gather here, I can’t help but think.. Life, much like an MMA fight, is unpredictable. It throws unexpected opponents at you —some with jabs, others with roundhouse kicks. But you’ve all learned to adapt, to roll with the punches (quite literally), and to find your footing even when the mat seems slippery. You're already champions." "Now let me take a step back, and lets together have a look at what these warriors.. these -SAVAGES- Have accomplished so far in their careers.." *Dan steps back and looks up at the screen as the lights dim. Narrated by a female voice, a video of each of the 9 alumni and their lives up to now begins to play* Floki Gunnarsson In the dimly lit corridors of Convicted Fight Club, where sweat mingles with the scent of resolve, there emerged a figure wrapped in determination. His name: Floki Gunnarsson. At a mere 18 years old, he stepped onto the canvas for the first time. Half Dane and half Icelandic, a product of the rugged North but raised amidst the forests and lakes of Sweden. The gym buzzed with anticipation as this newcomer, with his angelic features that hide an inner tempest. They called him the “Pretty Boy,” a moniker that danced lightly across his baby-faced visage. But those who dared underestimate him soon discovered the truth: beneath the veneer of innocence lay a Viking spirit — a primal force that hungered for combat. Floki likes to say that he "stood out like a Frosted Flake in a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles". His Nordic aura clashed with the warriors with who shared the mat. Yet, it was precisely this contradiction; the delicate and the fierce —that made him unforgettable. His eyes held the secrets of fjords, and his fists, when uncoiled, spoke of glaciers carving valleys. His record —5 straight wins, and 2 early career losses have etched a story of resilience. Each victory came by way of TKO from strikes, a testament to his raw power. He now carries the legacy of the Savage Scholarship program, class of 2023 —a machine that has forged his skills and steeled his resolve. And so, the saga continues. Floki’s career has only begun. A canvas awaiting bold brushstrokes. Keep your eyes on Floki Gunnarsson. He’s not just a fighter; he’s a story unfolding —one strike, one submission, one battle at a time. And who knows? Perhaps someday, the gods themselves will raise their horns in salute to this modern-day berserker. SKOL - and Congratulations Floki, on your graduation from the Savage Scholarship class of 2023! Teo King Teo King, born into the embrace of working-class Dominican immigrants, his childhood was a battleground —a place where survival meant fighting for every necessity. Alongside his brothers, he wove mischief into their days, their laughter echoing through narrow alleyways. But it was more than mischief; it was a primal instinct—the same fire that would soon ignite his career. Teo’s father, Théodore, watched this raw energy unfold. He recognized the spark.. The hunger, in his son. And so, one fateful day, he made a decision: the King brothers would step onto a different kind of canvas. Théodore, with the wisdom of a seasoned warrior, enrolled them in his work colleague’s Muay Thai gym. The gym’s walls absorbed their sweat, their shouts, and their dreams. Teo’s first baptism by combat came at 19 years old. The cage welcomed him, its steel mesh promising both pain and glory. In MMA, he carved an 8-4 record—a testament to his tenacity. Wins and losses, each a chapter in his saga. But there’s more: before the bright lights of MMA, Teo had danced under exclusive kickboxing spotlights. Two wins there —an unspoken promise of greatness. His heart straddles continents. Brooklyn, USA —the streets that raised him still hums in his veins. But Sydney, Australia, now echoes with his footsteps. Across oceans, he fights. His fists weave stories of resilience, and his kicks bridge cultures. The ink on his contract reads “Carnival Combat Club.” Teo’s name is etched alongside other warriors, each with their own battles to wage. The cage awaits him, its canvas blank —a space where dreams and destiny collide. Teo’s journey is intertwined with the Savage Scholarship program. Class of 2023 —a stone that has helped shaped him, sharpened his edges. His career? It’s a sunrise —a promise of more battles, more victories. So remember the name: Teo King. He’s not just a fighter; he’s a symphony of Brooklyn grit, Dominican fire, and the thunderous applause of distant shores. His story has only begun, and the cage awaits his next chapter. Congratulations to Teo King! Savage Scholarship Graduate of 2023! Bo Duran A former Junior hockey player, discovered that his talents extended beyond the ice. His knack for brawling caught the attention of the local MMA fight club, where he embarrassed a few opponents. Recognizing his potential, Jason Swanson, a seasoned trainer, took Bo under his wing at the Fight Founders gym in Montreal. Despite early defeats, Bo’s quick learning ability turned the tide. He transformed those setbacks into a winning streak, culminating in several Championship belt victories. His record boasts an impressive 15 wins and only 2 losses, with an astounding 13 of those wins coming by stoppage. Currently, Bo holds the light heavyweight championship belt in the Redemption Fight League, along with winning previous titles in other prestigious organizations. When asked about the Savage Scholarship program, he emotionally expressed gratitude: “I just want to take a moment and thank everyone involved. It takes an entire team to build an organization like this… sniff… It’s going to be hard to… to… dabs eye… I promised Lamar I wasn’t going to do this! Starting my career with the Savage Team behind me has been a tremendous success, and I believe both my class and the next will have a bright future ahead. Four more years! I’m going to Disneyland, and there is no tomorrow!” Bo’s achievements continue today, as he is a top graduate of the Savage Scholarship program, class of 2023. At only 27 years old, he still has ample time to leave an indelible mark on the sport, and we all know he will, if he hasn't already. His journey—from hockey rinks to championship belts—is a testament to dedication, resilience, and the thrill of combat. Thank you and congratulations to you, Savage Scholarship class of 2023 Graduate! Surkho Dratchev Known by his fight moniker “Nostrovia,” is a fascinating character in the world of mixed martial arts. Born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and now fighting out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Nostrovia brings a unique blend of passion, determination, and linguistic challenges to the cage. At just 26 years old, Nostrovia’s career is still in its early stages, but he’s already made an impact. With 11 wins and 6 losses, he’s proven himself to be a well-rounded fighter. But it’s not just his fighting skills that set him apart; it’s his unwavering commitment to two things: vodka and defending his right to share it with the world. Now, let’s pause for a moment and appreciate the delightful irony here. Nostrovia’s English might be a bit shaky, but his conviction is crystal clear. In his mind, every opponent he faces wants to snatch away his beloved vodka rights. It’s like he’s battling not just in the octagon but also against a global conspiracy to deprive him of his favorite spirit. And honestly, nobody has the heart to correct him. Maybe it’s the universal language of alcohol that transcends linguistic barriers. But let’s get back to business. Nostrovia is currently signed with the Carnival Combat Club, a fitting home for a fighter who combines grit with a dash of eccentricity. And speaking of his journey, he had this to say about the Savage Scholarship Program: *Speaking in Russian, subtitles scroll on the lower portion of the screen* “I joined the program during a very tumultuous time in the MMA World. Organizations could not stay open and I bounced around from show to show with no way to feed my family or visit prostitutes.." *the crowd laughs..* "I am grateful to be part of the Savage Sponsorship Program. Without this, I would not have a pot to piss in. My life as a “Savage” was very rough - without focus, I lacked consistency and success. Through perseverance and a fat Savage wallet, I managed to turn this around. I bite down on my mouthpiece, and fight another day!” And there you have it: Nostrovia! The fighter who fights for vodka and survival. Cheers to him, and may his punches be as potent as his favorite libation! Congratulations Surkho Dratchev, on your Graduation from the Savage Scholarship class of 2023! Luke Smith Luke Smith stands at the precipice of a promising career. His story unfolds like a well-choreographed fight —full of determination, unexpected twists, and unyielding ambition. Hailing from Manchester, England, Luke’s journey began in the unlikely setting of traveler camps. It was there that Alfred Winterbottom, with his keen eye for raw talent, discovered Luke and his brother. Their exhibition match caught Winterbottom’s attention, and Luke received the coveted green light to represent his country in the World Cup of MMA —a stepping stone toward greater glories. But Luke isn’t content with mere medals. The world cup victories, while significant, are just a waypoint on his map. His dreams stretch far beyond the confines of any championship podium. Tokyo, with its neon-lit streets and relentless energy, now serves as his fighting base —a place where he sharpens his skills and hones his resolve. Featherweight by classification, Luke boasts an impressive record: ten wins and four losses. Each scar, each hard-fought victory, fuels his hunger for more. Under contract with “Underground Cage Fighting,” he steps into the octagon with unwavering purpose, knowing that every punch and submission attempt shapes his legacy. And what of the Savage Scholarship Program? Luke’s gratitude runs deep. He attributes his ascent to their support, acknowledging that they played a pivotal role in molding him into the world champion he’s become. "The Savage Scholarship Program was instrumental in helping me become the world champion that I am. I will always be grateful for their help and support, and I in turn stand by CEO Rocket as the unfounded rumors that he visited a certain tropical Island come to light." When asked about CEO Rocket (whose name swirls in rumor) he stands by him staunchly, dismissing any unfounded tales of tropical escapades. So, watch closely as Luke Smith weaves his future narrative —a tale of resilience, sacrifice, and the pursuit of greatness. The cage awaits, and Luke strides forward, fists clenched, heart unyielding. His career has only begun, and the world of MMA holds its breath, eager to witness what this tenacious fighter will achieve next. Congratulations to Luke Smith! Savage Scholarship Graduate of 2023! Jayilton Almeda At just 23 years old, Jayilton Almeda has already etched his name into the annals of professional mixed martial arts. Hailing from Salvador, Brazil, he embodies the spirit of resilience and determination that defines his hometown. Born in the vibrant Brotas neighborhood of Salvador, Almeda’s upbringing was far from easy. His parents had parted ways, leaving him with 11 siblings to navigate life’s challenges. Tragically, his elder brother, Alexandre, vanished after becoming entangled in criminal activities —a haunting reminder of the harsh realities faced by many in their community. Initially, Almeda harbored dreams of becoming a professional soccer player, but a staggering R$10,000 stood between him and his soccer dreams; a sum that felt insurmountable for his family. Almeda turned to the combat sports that ran in his blood. At the tender age of 6, he laced up his gloves and stepped into the boxing ring. The discipline, the sweat, and the camaraderie of the gym became his refuge. But it was Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that truly captured his heart. By 11, he was grappling on the mats, honing his ground game alongside dedicated training partners. Almeda’s journey took an unexpected turn. The Savage Scholarship Program recognized his potential. With unwavering support, it provided him with a springboard for his career. Graduating from this respected organization isn’t just an achievement; it is a resounding vote of confidence in his abilities. Almeda’s response echoed his gratitude and determination: “What can I say about the Savage Scholarship? The support that this program provided gave me a fantastic start to my career & has given me massive motivation to perform at the highest level I can. Graduation from such a well-respected organization is a massive vote of confidence in me as a fighter & I hope to go forwards in my career with the same intensity and respect as this award demands, that of a True Savage.” And so, Jayilton Almeda continues to carve his path, one fight at a time.. Bearing the weight of his neighborhood, his family, and the legacy of a True Savage. His story is still unfolding, but the fire in his eyes promises a future marked by triumphs and unyielding spirit. Lets hear it for Jayilton Almeda, Graduate Savage Scholar of 2023! Lamar Gordon Lamar Gordon, known in the MMA world as “The Preachers Son,” has carved a remarkable path despite the odds stacked against him. Born and raised in a gritty neighborhood, Lamar’s early life was marked by the harsh realities of gang violence and drug-related struggles. But destiny had other plans for him. At a tender age, Lamar discovered two pivotal forces that would shape his future: mixed martial arts, and faith. His father, a local preacher, introduced him to both. Through the teachings of God and Jesus, Lamar found solace and redemption. The message was clear: courage and repentance could lead to forgiveness, even for those who had walked dark paths. As he stepped into the cage, Lamar’s raw talent became evident. His imposing frame —fitting for a heavyweight fighter —was matched by an unwavering determination. His record speaks volumes: 13 wins and 2 losses —a testament to his skill, resilience, and hunger for victory. From the streets of Rochester to the fighting arenas of Montreal, Lamar has become a beacon of hope for those who had faced adversity. His fists, once clenched in anger, now symbolized discipline and purpose. And in the octagon, he wore the mantle of a former champion —a title earned through grit, sacrifice, and countless hours of training. Today, at 27 years old, Lamar Gordon stands at the crossroads of his career. His contract with the Redemption Fight League promises more challenges, more triumphs. The echoes of his past still linger —the shadows of gang alleys and the scent of desperation— but they no longer define him. Lamar, “The Preachers Son,” fights not only for himself but for the redemption of all who dare to ask for it. As a graduate of the Savage Scholarship program class of 2023, his legacy continues to unfold, and the cage awaits his next chapter! Well done, and congratulations to the class of 2023 Savage Scholar - Lamar Gordon! Olivier Dujardin Olivier Dujardin, affectionately known as “Le Tigre,” emerged from the streets of Paris —a crucible that would forge both his resilience and his fighting spirit. His story began when he was plucked from obscurity, thrust into the clandestine world of nightclub brawls, where survival meant mastering the art of combat. But fate took a curious twist: his management, shrouded in mystery, vanished without a trace, leaving Olivier to find new guidance. He found it in Crazy Horse, his new management raising him out of the underground fight scene. His journey led him across continents, and today he fights out of Tokyo —a city pulsating with its own energy, where the neon lights cast long shadows on the surrounding landscapes. At 26 years old, Olivier stands at the precipice of greatness. His record—12 wins and 5 losses—tells a tale of hard-fought battles, each scar etching a chapter in his narrative. But numbers alone cannot capture the fire that burns within him. It’s the whispers of underground rumors —the insinuation that his former management danced with shadows— that lend an air of mystique to his story. After signing the contract with the Savage Scholarship, Olivier seized the NYF 170lb title and defended it with ferocity. But champions are forged in defeat as much as victory. A recent loss forced Olivier to recalibrate. Now, ensconced within the hallowed walls of the House of 1000 Corpses —a sanctuary for fighters— he trains alongside legends. Olivier yearns to ascend once more, to reclaim what destiny owes him. The children had their fleeting moment in the sun, but now Le Tigre prowls. If you stand in his way, beware! The cage awaits, and Olivier Dujardin is ready to roar! Join us in Congratulating Olivier Dujardin - Savage Scholarship graduating class of 2023! Artemis Entreri Artemis “The Assassin” Entreri was born into a world where raw power and calculated brutality intersect. Hailing from the vibrant city of Calimport, Artemis found himself drawn to the primal dance of combat. His lineage, a curious blend of biker grit and artistic sensibility, shaped his destiny. His father —a leather-clad road warrior— imbued him with a fierce determination, while his mother, a playwright, gifted him with the ability to weave narratives both on and off the canvas. It’s said that Artemis followed in his father’s footsteps, but perhaps it’s more accurate to say he forged his own path —one that led him away from the rumbling engines of motorcycles and toward the roar of the crowd in the MMA arena. Artemis burst onto the scene as a light heavyweight fighter, his frame honed through countless hours of training. His record —11 wins and 4 losses— tells a story of resilience and adaptability. But it’s the manner of those victories that sets him apart: all but one of his wins achieved through the primal punctuation of a knockout blow. New York City serves as his fighting base, a gritty backdrop against which he showcases his lethal skills. The Combate organization, recognizing his potential, has inked him to a contract —a pact that binds him to the pursuit of greatness. He channels both, the raw fury of a biker’s chain; and the poetic precision of a playwright’s pen. With each fight, he etches his story deeper into the collective consciousness, leaving a trail of fallen opponents and awestruck spectators. So, keep your eyes on Artemis “The Assassin” Entreri. His career has only just begun, and at 27 years old -and now a graduate of the esteemed Savage Scholarship program’s class of 2023- His story unfolds not in the hallowed halls of academia, but rather within the unforgiving cage of mixed martial arts. Congratulations to The Assassin, Artemis Entreri! Savage Scholarship class of 2023 graduate! *Lights brighten on the podium where Dan Daniels turns again to the crowd and smiles as he applauds. Preparing for his closing words, he leans into the microphone..* "And now Savage class of 2023.. -As you step out of this auditorium and into the world, remember this.. Remember that you’re not just fighters;" *Epic music begins to play* "You’re ambassadors of resilience, discipline, adaptability, community, and courage. Carry these virtues with you always, as you strive for greatness! May your careers be legendary, your victories celebrated, and your defeats turned into stepping stones.. And when life throws a spinning backfist your way, dodge it, counter, and move ever forward!" *Epic rock music continues to play louder..* "Congratulations once again, Savages! May your legacy echo through the ages, and may your battle cries inspire generations of warriors to come!" "Now GO GET IT!" *The crowd roars with energy and applause, as the lights fade from the podium and are replaced by party lights dancing around the room, while epic rock music fills the auditorium.* The event has come to an end, but the promising careers of these exceptional Savage graduates - have only just begun! Onward, to the after party!

  5. At the end of the day, I'll repeat what I said a while ago in regards to this topic: The design philosophy should be about bringing people up rather than putting others down to level playing fields, and I think that translates to this discussion really well. The nature of anything with a remote smidge of competitiveness (nevermind one that is also a text based browser game) is that people will deviate towards whatever is 'optimal'. To direct people into playing the game how you envision, make that playstyle the best way to go about it or at least a viable alternative. IF you don't like the idea of cooking for philosophical reasons or for being unfriendly to non-VIPs and/or noobs THEN make a viable alternative, by making development better out of the box (which seems to be gathering more favour amongst users) or rewarding being active through fights with noticeable development bonuses which would be on par to cooking. Both combined with existing mechanics like the skills softcap mean that there is simply less or no advantage to cooking. Imagine if you could develop a fighter equally as well by actually fighting (within reason to prevent farming) or if that was the more optimal way to build a guy. Not many people would still choose to cook extensively, and you'd get a bunch of less 'complete' guys actually going at each other (Alfred's wet dream!). Nerfing cooking rather than providing a better alternative like more skill points or faster development just keeps the non-chefs just as depressed and now makes the chefs sadder too.

  6. SUMMER SLAUGHTER - FINAL STANDINGS Well folks, it’s over. After fifteen gruelling events spread over the entire month of June, the Summer Slaughter champion has finally been crowned. Twenty fighters took part and let me tell you, it was no walk in the park for any one of them. Let’s take a look at the final standings and prize hunt winners. It came down to the very final round to decide a champion and in the end it was the undeniable slider fu of consistant #1 OG manager Billy Arseworth and his asian slave fighter Asian Guy who took top honours. He was pushed to the very limits and had to pick himself up and dust himself off a few times in the tournament but he did just that and reaps the rewards of his bravery. The 6m Tycoon Dollar grand prize is now his to spend how he sees fit (A new shiny jet anyone?) In second place it was the delightfully freaky overperforming Freaky Fernando that surprised us with his performances over the tournament. Although he faltered at the last hurdle, it would have made little difference in the grand scheme of things as he needed Asian Guy to lose in order for him to win. 3M Tycoon Dollars are now on it’s way to his bank account. In third place it was The Big Boss who seemingly flew under the radar for the entire tournament. A submission master, Big Boss ended up topping the tables for Most Submissions in the tournament with a grand total of 11 out of 11 wins. Extremely impressive performance overall and enough to claim third place. A total of 2m Tycoon Dollars go to this fighter. 1M for his third place finish and 1M for Most Submissions Splitting the 1M for Most Knockouts in the tournament will be Chadwick Raffelburg and Tyler Durden. Raffelburg became known for his gentle but effective face massages whilst Durden was just straight up kebab shopping fools. 8 KO’s apeice each nets them 500k each. Although not the greatest performance of his career, “Smooth” Booby Soul will not go down as a one hit wonder after claiming the fastest finish of the tournament. His nineteen second KO over Ben Barnes in Rd. 3 earns him a cool 1m Tycoon Dollars. Let’s hope he writes a song about that. Speaking of Ben Barnes, this dastardly fighter waiting until the very last round of the tournament to snatch the Hot Potato Title Prize for himself and claim the 1m prize attached to it. Sneaky, very sneaky but we love it and that’s how it’s supposed to go. Topping the charts in the Most Battered tables and earning his own 1m towards medical bills was Juan Pablo Estrella. A combined 99 injury and cuts days inflicted on his fighter overall. We recommend immediate retirement and recovery for this well derserving fighter. Chadwick Raffelburg is awarded 100k for claiming the first “Kill Asian Guy” bounty and Ishaan Thornton is awarded 250k for claiming the second “Kill Asian Guy” bounty. Well, that’s a wrap folks. Thanks for tuning in! A more detailed performance review of each fighter will be coming up very soon and all prizes will be paid out today. A big thank you for everyone who took part and accepted their fights but especially, as always, for those that didn’t have the best of runs and knew they were out of the running some rounds earlier. A truly selfless act which shows great budo and makes sure that tournament integrity remains intact. I salute you.

  7. I don't mind the speed of the game - 1 year = 12 weeks is fine. Part of this games charm is you don't have to log in daily unless you run an org. It is the learning speed which has to go up. The quicker the fighters learn the quicker you get to fighting and the more people remain engaged - rather than spending a full year waiting for them to become semi competent even when you roll a 6.5-7.5 learner. Now you can do this without actually altering your baseline on learning speed. Just keep the learning speed consistent until the fighter hits his potential drop off range. This is probably the best option for the guys who are left. It means those who like to fight early get to do so with less punishment for doing so and those who like to cook their fighters get them cooked a bit faster. I'd rather see the learning speeds go up but I can understand if that just would cause a headache with people who have just created fighters prior to the patch going live.

  8. Mentor summarised it pretty well. While many of you have raised some compelling arguments, a change in learning speed will be a fundamental change to the core of the game - it's not something we are planning to do and I firmly believe that it will have the inverse impact to what everyone is expecting. On the topic of player growth, to put things into perspective, 61% of web traffic comes from mobile and the site unfortunately isn't optimised for mobile play at this time. I have covered this loosely with a few people, but to put everyone on the same page - we want to introduce meaningful changes to the game, not cheap cop-outs like increasing the learning speed. We will be improving all areas of the game, and once we think it's in a good place both functionally and visually we will start aggressive growth campaigns aimed at attracting more users! While I appreciate this isn't the instant growth that everyone is looking for... we have a process and we will continue to keep the community appraised on our progress and are even considering hosting monthly community discussions on Discord where we answer all of your burning questions and show you sneak peeks of what we're working on. https://discord.gg/RQYDVDZeAg

  10. Growth is something we've discussed on more than one occasion, we have some plans but as it stands they're in the distant future (early 2025) but absolutely the more users we can attract the better for everyone but as it stands we need to address a lot of the issues, improve a lot of existing archaic systems and modernise the entire design.

  11. *Your monitor fades in to the next advertisement. - rock music begins to play as the camera slowly pans to focus on a well toned silvery haired man, sitting behind a desk covered with all manner of MMA fight memorabilia. His thin frame and clean shaven face are framed by wall hangings, flags, championship belts, and many hand autographed pictures of him standing beside MMA legends.* "Hello fight fans- I'm Dan Daniels, and I would like to welcome you all to my new show that will encompass everything related to MMA! - "That Damn Dan Daniels MMA Show!" *camera angle changes* "From Pre-Fight hype interviews, to Post-Fight reviews - and everything in between! You'll find it all right here! I'll look to speak with the biggest upcoming talents and even world champions in the most prestigious organizations to get their opinions, predictions, and hear what is on their minds!" *Dan continues to speak, as the screen fades to a scrolling slideshow of notable moments in MMA history* "Do you have an event in need of press coverage? or maybe you're a manager looking to bring some attention to your top fighters? Contact Dan Daniels today, to immortalize your historic events and fighters at 1-888-KICK-ASS !" *The screen goes back to Dan who flashes a smile and flexes with one arm while pointing at you with the other, as the music fades out and the advertisement comes to an end.* --------------------------------------------- OOC: Returning from a long time hiatus. I love that this game is getting some improvements and attention from devs, and wanted to witness the progress. I need money to build a new gym, and get my new management empire started back up! .. That being said, I am offering up my writing services to those in need. I know writers are (or at least were) hard to find, so prices may depend on the work load that I currently have. I may also refuse things that I do not have time for. My real life schedule is erratic. For this reason; I can not commit to writing more than one piece at a time. (I won't be hired to write all reviews for all of your events.) Each piece is negotiated as a separate work. Prices may adjust over time while I learn the economy again. Pieces will include images of any highlighted characters and "flavor" images, as well as formatted text to make the post look nicer, as in the sample above. Pre Fight Press Conference - 50k per cooperating fighter. I will come up with 2 questions to ask each fighter - Managers give reply's, and I will write it into a press conference format. Prices for this are dependent on how many managers cooperate. More writing will be more expensive. Single Fighter interviews - 50k Much like a one on one podcast interview. I will write several questions to ask the fighter, and based on your responses; will write it all into an interview format. Post Event Review (top 3 fights only) - 75k In the past, I have found that writing a review for an entire 10 fight card gets exhausting and repetitive. For both quality of writing and to avoid sounding like a broken record, I will only review the top 3 fights on a card unless otherwise negotiated. Benchmark events may have special attention (UFC 300 for example). *I will also graciously work for VIP time* Thank you for your interest! Please mail me in game or DM me here on the forums to discuss your writing needs. ~Dan Daniels

  12. The only thing I've seen so far that makes sense is to add more points at creation. By way of compensation for those wo have created fighters maybe offer something like release 5 fighters for free after the date announced that the additional creation points will be added. If you give people enough notice heading into a change, and offer a suitable compensation package for anyone who might be affected, I don't see there being much of an issue The QFC rebalance is a valid point and probably something that needs looking at anyway. The fighter pay for QFC is still based on times when gym fees were cheap as chips and 1 year VIP was like 1mil. The game needs a major upheaval to bring it up to spec, and to entice new and old managers to join the game and not have to wait one year irl to compete. EDIT: You have a pseudo PTR with the island to test these things in beta format before implementing. Run an island season with greater points at creation and see how it plays out. It's not like for like but itll give a good flavour of how it can fit into the full game.

  14. Round 14 Recap And so it will need the entire 15 rounds to crown our Summer Slaughter champion. Round 14 is now over and this is how things went down. Tyler Durden murdered Luis Caixhina in just twenty-two seconds of the first round. With nothing but pride to fight for, Durden clearly decided to make a run at the fastest knockout which stands at nineteen seconds. The win puts Durden at 8-6 and guarantees that he finishes the tournament with a winning record. He is currently in 8th place in the league but that could go as high as 4th on the last day. He is also in the running for most KO’s in the tournament. As for Caixhina, this latest loss marks his ninth out of his last ten fights and means he will be scrapping until his final moments to avoid staying in the last place spot he currently occupies. Asian Guy couldn’t believe his luck as opponent Sancho Bandito completed the first part of his three part winning tactic for him. Guy has tried to follow a strict “grab em, flop on em & sub em” strategy all the way to the top and once again it worked like a charm. Guy gets the first round submission and remains in first place via a TB. For Bandito, you know he must be a loser as even closeted homo Asian Guy didn’t want his free love. He now goes into the final week with the very real chance of finishing last. An important win for El Freaky Fernando over a tough Ben Barnes ensures he keeps the pressure on Asian Guy and remains in high contention for the championship. Still in second place and separated by a TB, Fernando will need Asian Guy to slip up as well as win himself. For Barnes, at 6-8, even a winning record is beyond his grasp at this point, however, he does have a shot at the hot potato title in his final match up. Title chasing underdog The Big Boss has fought bitterly to keep the dream alive but I think at this point, third place is the highest he could go even if Fernando and Guy were to lose their final fights and Boss win his. This would be due to a tie break rule in which case Boss has lost to both of those opponents priot. Still, I could be wrong and we’ll have to find out in the last round. Boss defeated Top 3 hopeful Ishaan Thornton and effectively put and end to that ambition. Thornton will be simply fighting for pride and a finish potentially as high as 4th. Oscar Bukele managed a successful second defence of his hot potato title against underperforming Frankmaster Phlex. This defence ties him with The Big Boss and Asian Guy and so going into his final match up could potentially end the tournament as the most dominant hot potato title holder. With a record of 9-5, Bukele currently sits in 4th and with a win over Boss earlier in the tournament, he could still potentially snatch the third place spot for himself. For Phlex, this tournament run has likely been a disappointment for his management team but with a run of 7-7, he could at the very least finish with a positive winning record. Chadwich Raffleburg picked up his seventh knockout of the tournament and is in with a good chance of taking the Most KO’s prize. He defeated Jasur Ordilovokov who hasn’t been in the best of form of late but remains capable of snatching the odd win here and there. Raffleburg currently sits in fifth place but he could potentially move as high as 4th. I think due to his loss to Big Boss earlier in the tournament, there would be no leapfrogging him for 3rd no matter the results. For Jasur, he is clear of any last place humilation but largely he will be fighting for the glory of sweet victory in his remaining bout. Oh how the mighty hath fallen. The peoples champion and purveyor of all that is good and right in this tournament has been well and truly betrayed by the Gods of RNG. Reduced to being a walking medical emergency and a guaranteed free win, Farley now suffers the humiliation of losing to Juan Pablo Estrella. A fighter who’s early results were so bad that he still sits atop of the most brutalised list for cuts and injuries up to now. The fact that Estrella has been doing so much better of late is of no comfort to Farley and his management. The fact is Farley is the true heir to the throne and has been utterly wronged in this tournament. There’s going to be a huge asterisk next to this one when it’s all said and done. Someone sure fed Seth Christian his meth laced Wheaties this morning? Must have been the same stuff they give Biden when they need him to perform as Christian came into this one full of beans and defeated a fighter that most would not have picked him to beat. A first round submission over “Smooth” Booby Soul? No way! But that’s exactly what happened. Not too much to play for in the final round for Christian but Booby will have a bit of “Soul” searching to do as his final result will decide whether he finishes with a winning or losing record. Gaetano Villacci defeated Jedrek Piotrowicz by unanimous decision and there’s not much to say about that. We had a forfeit victory for Minor Cuevas as his opponent Jaiden Montgomery was rumoured to have been arrested for exposing himself to an undercover police dog. It’s a real shame this happened as it really does mess with the integrity of the tournament and we can only apologies to Cuevas on behalf of sexual deviant Montgomery and promise to vet our entrants a little more thoroughly in future. Please get some professional help Jaiden.

  20. July 14th MILF has hit the mainland after a dominant run as the clear cut #1 Organization of the Island for Season 15! After weeks of over dramatic buffoonery, Tycoon Judas final has come to terms with the fact that he just can't stay out the MMA game and has brought his Clowney freakshow to Mainland. Week 1 the Wild MMA promoter sought out to tackle Wombley Arena and Sold out the place in just a few days. Some say it was the copious amounts of Tea and Crumpets he brought for the local Londoners, while others insist, they came along because they were not just allowed in for free but there would be a lifetime membership included at Judases side business MILFs-R-Us! All honesty though MILF brought the Action at the promotion's debut in London. The Main and Co-Main events alone where absolutely ballz out excitement! Tortuga Apparel was also on hand handing out their crack head priced clothing line, there is talk though that the Merch profits where quite a bit altered as the Tortuga crew was caught by cameras stuffing hundreds of thousands in their pockets. Somehow the video evidence was taken, and an investigation is surely in order. Let's take a look at the Action from the Main Card! Michael Harrison def Jamahal Mountain via 1rst round KO (Punch) Let's face it, it was not the debut Mr. Mountain wanted as we had High hopes for the newest addition to the MILF Heavyweight division. Michael Harrison simply bombarded his opponent from start to finish making nearly everything he threw count. Michael opened up a cut just seconds into the fight with a vicious uppercut. between the blood and the gas tank failing him Jamahal had little offense of his own to bring forth and at the minute and 25 second mark, Harrison seals the deal with an Overhand Right. Michael Harrison was awarded KO of the Night for this performance and really got the mode started for this exciting card. Pitter Patter def Scott Potter via Unanimous Decision Pitter Patter picked a patch of Pickled Potters in are next bout. This one was a mother fudging barn burner for many reasons. Scott Potter showed his toughness throughout this fight as he would continue to Rise up from knockdown after Knockdown as these two Middleweights stood two to two launching punches all three rounds. The Numbers where pretty close in this one but the 4 Knockdowns for Patter made it an easy night for the Judges in this one. Fight of the Night owners were awarded to both Gentleman for putting on one hell of a scrap. Marques Roy def Saul Jackson 1rst round TKO (Strikes) Both of these gents are fresh off their Season ending Island tournaments. Jackson was outed in the first round, but Roy managed to make the Semi Finals. This fight showed how dominant Marques can be as he Took down Saul early on in the first round and gave him little to know time to get anything going. A relentless pace of ground and pound was the demise of the "Super Freak" and the end came when Roy landed a clean Elbow from the then another, then another and Saul better call another Saul because he needs to learn how to block that shit! Marques Roy wins at 4:41 in round 1 Co Main Event Lightweight Championship Eric Frost def Luke Ridley via first round Submission (Armbar) I would imagine these two are sick of staring at one another as they have now fought each other three times in the last 2 and half weeks. This being a rubber match, they first met at MILF 99 Night of Champions and then once more in the season 15 Lightweight Island Tournament. Frost defended his belt at Night of Champions with a first round sub but found himself on the losing end of a Decision in the Semifinals of the tourney. Ridley on the other hand went on to the Final and made a huge statement there winning it all and earning his rematch here. The champ though wrote his wrongs and made it look easy this night scoring the early takedown and imposing his dangerous grappling prowess for a quick Submission victory to retain his belt. That makes 7 straight Title defenses now for Frost, who will stop this Canadian bastard? Main Event Light Heavyweight Championship Jerome Browning def Randall Cunningham via first round TKO (Strikes) Jerome had to be fuming coming into this fight after a frustrating first round loss in the LHW Tournament for the Island. None the less the true sportsman he is Browning welcomed a streaking Randall Cunningham to the MILF cage for his first crack at the Belt. Cunningham had a decent start to the bout avoiding the clinch and landed some solid kicks to the champ. Jerome managed to finally lock it up in the clinch just past the minute mark though and quickly brough the fight to the mat from there. Browning was stuck to his challenger like a tick but was landing some powerful shots from Half guard that would cut open Randalls eye causing him some visual problems, poor thing. With just 1 second remaining referee Fook face decides to call in the Doctors and the fight is declared a TKO Cuts stoppage for the winner AND STILL LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT Champ Jerome Browning! Jerome stated in his post-fight he was not happy with this win and would gladly run it back if and when Cunningham climbs his way back to the top. Recap Michael King" Harrison stays strong as he now sets his sights on the Super Heavyweight division. With a potential matchup with "Triple D" Domingo Don Dominguez. Tough night for the former front runner for the MILF Middleweight title in Scott Potter, but the "Poster Boy" is always a threat I can see him fighting his way back into title contention. I expect a big fight in Pitter Patter's near future. He now stands strong at 11-4 overall in his MMA career and has won 5 of his last 6 fights. Marques Roy meanwhile looks to be next in line for a title fight but will probably have one more matchup before seeing as the two fighters fighting for the belt next are his only losses. at 14-3 overall Roy is rising up the Middleweight rankings almost cracking the top 50 with this win. The hot question has to be what the hell is next for Eric Frost? He has beaten the vast majority of the 155-pound division. Marc Schagler looks to be an interest matchup based off his run in the Seasons ending tournament, if he could get a win in his next purposed matchup i think it happens. There are also some rumors of a matchup between LW champ vs WW champ Jovonovich. This would be the first champ vs champ fight in MILF history, and both camps have blabbered about it a Wittle bit. Finally Light Heavyweight the division that is fading quickly sadly. With Erik Bjornsson the Season 15 LHW tourny winner in search of new management his career in MMA looks to be in jeopardy (SOME BRAVE SOLE MUST GIVE HIM A SHOT). I think the next in line for Browning though has to be the Rising Pascal Popper who made it to the finals of the tourny as well. Coming up next for MILF MILF 104 Jovonovich vs Couture I would also like to give a shout out to @venom09 who has come on to help me. Not sure what it is but I hate dealing with contracts these days lol, Swanson you are a savior!

They're just using simple stuff on my phone (for now) as i currently dont have a laptop, and also dont know how to do advanced blending type stuff myself. All the avatars I've made have the same type of "style" to them, mainly because I use the whole head for most of them. MAYBE someone will like ones I post and wanna give me like 25k for them, I'll do requests too if you're interested. Thanks!

  24. What about a combination of: Increase starting points for 19-25 year old fighters. Allow higher level starting skills scaling with age. No permanent chin loss for being ko:ed say first 3 months after creation for 18 or under fighters. A 25yo should still not start at openid level, but we could make that level possible to reach for them (a large part of reaching the cap will be physicals). The idea is starting with an older fighter will bring you to openid level quicker but your total career is of course shorter. This would shake up the id org structure and we would maybe see age based orgs instead of id, or even skill level based.. but I'd consider that a step in the right direction if it happens. Maybe even the first step of moving in the direction of a better org structure.

  25. Reading the responses from Mike and Vlad is very frustrating. The game and its player base is circling the drain and this kind of reactionary thinking isn't going to help. I'm not surprised though. This has been more or less how the game has been run for most of its lifespan. In addition, the fact that you go completely silent for a quarter of a year and return by making insignificant and minor changes like updating meaningless stuff like this doesn't exactly inspire much confidence in you or your 'vision', least of all because these stats don't include retired fighters which make them completely useless in the first place. Listen to your player base, they know what this game needs way better than either of you do at this point.

  27. Round 13 Recap Another crazy round over and still we have a large handful of fighters still in with a shot at winning the whole thing. The Prize Pool is also extremely competitive and will likely come down to the final round to announce our winners. Title front runner Freaky Fernando was in no mood for funny business this round and came fully prepared to face the threat of “Smooth” Booby Soul. Not a fan of his silky sweet tones, Fernando quickly grabbed ass, butt flopped and cranked that arm like it was a tenor sax! Soul didn’t stand a chance but his handlers did report that the loss inspired Soul who went straight back to the locker room and began penning his new smooth soul hit “Baby, that just wasn’t fair” With the victory, Fernando is now neck and neck with Asian Guy at the top of the table separated only by a pesky tie break. The pressure is now firmly on him going into the next round as he faces a tough opponent in Ben Barnes whilst Asian Guy will have a far less intimidating challenge in Sancho Bandito. For Soul, his run at the title is now officially over but there is still a theoretical shot at third place. He could also, in theory, manage a tie for most KO’s in the tournament should he go on a rampaging KO spree. Ishaan Thornton is a true patriot of the great US of A and was never going to accept a bad result against the evil regime of the CCP and it’s minion Asian Guy. Chants of “USA, USA, USA” drowned out all other noise and despite Asian Guy's protestation that he is actually from Japan, Thornton could be seen snarling “you’re going down CHY-NAH” from inside the cage. Asian Guy gave it his best shot at sticking to the game plan but Thornton was fuelled by the juice of twelve bald eagles and high fructose corn syrup and could not be budged. In the end, it was clear who was getting the decision no matter how the actual fight went but thankfully, the correct man received the correct decision. Thornton gave a brief but rousing post fight speech. Doing his best Iron Sheik impression he simply stated “USA. Number one! CHY-NAH HAWK TUA!!” Despite the loss, Asian Guy still manages to hang on at the top of the table though only by virtue of a single tie break earlier in the tournament. For Thornton, the victory keeps him just within striking distance of the title though he will be relying on those above him dropping all of their respective final match ups. Minor Cuevas joins a growing list of fighters being added to Alfred’s big book of grievances after he thoroughly trounced a vulnerable and injured Terry Farley. The loss marks Farley’s third in a row and effectively eliminates him from any chance of winning the tournament. The post medical also revealed that Farley is basically a lame duck going into his next one so even third place would be a miracle. Thanks Cuevas you SOB! With his selfish act, Minor Cuevas moves to sixth in the table and still has an outside shot of winning. We wish him the least of luck. The hot potato title prize was on the line in this next one with Oscar Bukele looking to make his first defence against title hunter Chadwick Raffleburg. A fairly important fight in the grand scheme of things and on this occasion it was Bukele who came away victorious. He not only maintains his grip on the hot potato he also moves up into fourth place and is in a great position for a top three finish. A devastating loss for Russleboar who now drops two wins behind the league leaders. He is still in contention for the top spot albeit at much reduced odds than before. For a corpse, Seth Christian put up a surprisingly good fight against bottom dweller Luis Caixhina in their round thirteen clash managing to last until the third round before his shot of adrenaline wore off and his brain stopped working. Somehow, Christian is still not in last place despite losing eight of his last nine. Luckily for him, Caixinha has been performing even worse so this victory was a real treat for him. Unfortuntely for Caixinha, it wasn’t enough to climb off of the bottom spot. Ben Barnes had a nice win against Jasur Ordilovokov as he aims to finish the tournament with a winning record. Currently 13th in the table with a record of 6-7, Barnes will be fighting for pride in his remaining two fights as well as potentially upsetting a few apple carts along the way. Pretty much the same deal for Jasur who currently sits in 15th place with a record of 5-8. The Big Boss, flying high but under the radar! This dark horse fighter lurks in third place in the table with an impressive 9-4 record and is just waiting to slip in the back door past the league leaders should the opportunity arise. He defeated the hug monster Sancho Bandito by submission though it probably took longer than he expected. As well as having a shot at the grand prize, Boss also tops the list for most submissions with nine in total. That’s right folks. Nine wins, nine submissions. Of course, things can change quickly in this game and Boss will need to be at his absolute best for the remaining two rounds. For Sancho, the loss keeps him battling hard to avoid the dreaded last place finish. Someone should probably call a drug testing agency as Juan Pablo Estrella has gone from having one victory in nine fights to winning three out of his last four. Of course, it doesn’t really help him in the league that much but it must feel good to get those W’s. He defeated Gaetano Villacci which is no small feat. Villacci was coming in on a two fight winning streak making the result of this one all the more surprising. Gaetano now drops to 6-7 in record and is effectively out of the running for a top three spot. His best bet at some cash is to now take a couple of dives and hope his cuts and injuries are enough to take him to the top of the brutality table. Inconsistent Tyler Durden manages to keep within distance of a top three finishing spot after his first round KO victory over Jaiden Montgomery. Currently in tenth place with a record of 7-6, Durden will be at the mercy of other results even if he does manage to go out with a bang during his remaining two fights. Still, the chance of a top three spot remains. For his opponent Jaiden Montgomery, this loss marks his second in a row of an overall 4-9 record. Currently in 17th position, Montgomery could be considered to be within the group fighting to avoid last place. Lastly, Jedrek Piotrowicz upset Frankmaster Phlex’s last ditch attempt at the grand prize defeating him over a gruelling three rounds of clinch fighting. The victory doesn’t do too much for Piotrowicz outside of his pride but for Phlex, the loss pushes him a step away from a top three finish. With a 7-6 record there is still hope but it will all come down to outside results as well as his own from here on out

  28. Round 12 Recap Fresh from stealing another batch of intel for the motherland, Asian Guy is now back to the top of the table after Freaky Fernando faltered. Clearly a fan of the “don’t say gay” policies installed by Flordia governator Meatball Ron, Guy has stated his disdain for any and all Buchholz shenanigans and has begun to hunker down “backs to the wall” style and make a play for the big prize. He defeated Jaiden Montgomery by third round decision. Some fans were overheard suggesting that for someone so openly homophobic, Asian Guy sure fights like a F…… Anyway, Minor Cuevas pulled off an upset after defeating title contender Freaky Fernando by unanimous decision which resulted in Fernando conceding top position to rival Asian Guy. Fernando, clearly concentrating too much on freaky Buchholz things, will now be playing catch up once again but with only a few rounds left in which to turn it around. Cuevas, who now moves up into sixth place, did himself the world of good in his pursuit for a prize giving finishing spot. A contentious though snooze worthy affair with the hot potato title on the line, Oscar Bukele managed to wrestle away the gold from The Big Boss who was attempting his third defence of the thing. Most people decided that this fight was a great time to go grab a frosty beer and a tasty pretzel. Boo to both of them. Heartbreak for fan hero Terry Farley and his manager Alfred Winterbottom as they were thoroughly betrayed by their favourite tournament character “Smooth” Booby Soul. Apparently not getting the memo to remain a meme character and let the big boys do the real work, Soul went into business for himself by not only making poor Farley go the distance and leaving him utterly exhausted for the next round but by winning the decision too. He may have well have whipped his little winkle out and took a piss up Farley’s leg as the chief medical examiner announced a sixteen day injury for him to take into his next fight. Shame on you Soul. You really gave Farley the blues. Chadwick Rufflebug was back to winning ways after defeating Polish fighter Jedrek Piotrowicz by third round KO. The victory keeps a faint glimmer of hope alive for Chadwick who remains four points behind the group leader with three rounds to go. For Jedrek, the last remaining fights will be purely down to pride. Ishaan Thornton practically destroyed any chance of Frankmaster Phlex had of a Cinderella story comeback after knocking him out late in the first round. Though a good win for Thornton, the results put both fighters at 7-5 and leaves them scrapping most likely for a highly contested third place finish. The underperforming Tyler Durden managed to put the brakes to his three fight skid at the expense of Juan Pablo Estrella who was just beginning to find his own groove. A first round KO was the result which leaves Durden with a 6-6 record and pushes 3-9 Estrella back down into the bottom place dog fight. Another fighter in poor form of late, Jasur “Kick Shitter” Ordilovokov managed to pick up a rare win this time by punching down on poor Luis Caixhina who suffered his eighth loss in a row. Jasur, now clear of any potential last place finishes now sits in thirteenth place whilst Caixinha dwells in the dreaded bottom of the table position. The hug monster Sancho Bandito picked up a rare win when he defeated partially dead Seth Christian by decision. Christian basically used up any will to fight in the first round when he attempted a few submissions but after that he pretty much checked out and just let Bandito cuddle him for 10 minutes straight. Finally, Gaetano Villacci sparked out Ben Barnes via first round KO. For the next few rounds, both of these fighters will basically be looking to play party pooper to anyone they come across.

He was my mentor and he was almost entirely hands off & uninvolved, basically pointed me at his website and a post containing a couple of build suggestions & that was basically it in its entirety, maybe I was the unlucky one & he was much better with other players but that was my experience & it was piss poor, I do recall he was thinking about quitting at that point so maybe he was just super-low morale then. Learnt more from CK in 10 minutes, and Crazy Horse is another good on advice.

  33. You have to have a bit of give and take regarding it. If no risks are taken then this game will just lose more of its current userbase - I'd hazard a guess that about 30% of its current VIP managers have checked out and just autobot on the off chance that the game can reclaim some of its former glory. The risk reward is that the money you lose on the learning speed hits will be absorbed by the number of new/returning managers to the game going VIP - plus you get your normal amount of cuts due to useless hiddens.

  35. Mike, I think the consensus is we don't necessarily want the game sped up. It's more about how long it takes fighters to progress in skills. By starting new builds with more skill points, that would help. If we could tweak learning speed, that would be even better. Keep everything else the same. Skill cap, degradation, game speed, etc. Just help get fighters better, faster.

  36. It has been the fundamental change that the game has required since 2012/13, when everyones original crop of fighters decayed. You look at the userbase decrease from that time period and it was literally the thought of having to create new fighters. There were so many guys who all up and left after one crop of fighters. Some others were lucky that when a manager left for one reason or another that they inherited a new crop which kept them an extra year or two. Mike changed the speed of the game once before from 13 weeks to 12 weeks which had no adverse reaction to the core players. During that time there was a vote on training speed increases which 90% of the game thought it was required. Mentors summary that ' increasing game speed does not really do anything, other than make all the history obsolete.' is absolutely wild. It was done before and the games history was not made obsolete. When I came back I created my guys and basically logged on once a week to change the training for a full year before they were somewhat ready to fight competitively. I don't think anyone is advocating for an arcade version of tycoon where it is just plug and play. However fighting at the early levels is just not fun what so ever. It is literally all about the first couple of moves in a fight and it is over - the grappler vs striker is back in the 1990's. I know from talking with Rush how much of an absolute clusterfuck changing the learning speeds would be (the fact that every single fighter on the database would have to be changed one by one). However, without the learning speed change I honestly don't see many of the old timers coming back and after the game existing for 15+ years I think anyone that wanted to find this type of game has already found it by now.

  37. Earlier today when reading this thread, this is where my mind went to as well. I think increased training speeds could fundamentally affect a bunch of things (good or bad) and it's not necessarily as trivial as just changing one number. There's not many people who totally know, but it's clear to most people paying attention that due to the age of the game and perhaps certain decisions in the past there's definitely some floating spaghetti code around. e.g. Bio formatting and PMs on phone browsers being broken due to efforts to mend certain other holes. That being said, hopefully something like starting skill points is something that can be changed without flow on technical issues. Raising the floors of starting skill points will mean it takes less time to develop an 18 year old and/or having a diverse build isn't so reliant on 7+ learning. It also means 25 year old creations still overall won't be better medium to long term compared to a crafted prospect, but definitely better out of the box. It shouldn't also have too much of an effect on end games due to skill point softcaps still being a thing. So it addresses a few community gripes through a way that potentially doesn't fundamentally change too much compared to revamping the training system. The only thing I see a change in starting skillpoints having a potential flow on effect on is that you'd have to adjust the QFCs. The threshold for QFC level 1s are already really low, and an increase in skill floor would mean that no one meets the criteria. We could just consolidate and make QFC Level 2 the only one rather than splitting pools, or if it's possible, adjusting the goal posts to keep them separate but actually working if we were to change starting skills. EDIT: The fact of the matter is that starting total skill point decisions were made at a time where maybe the vision of the game was a bit different to how it's panned out. Things like the monetary reward for QFCs and the tiny amount of cash your fighter earns from working 'part time' when they're out of cash are relics of a vision that was a bit different, which is why they prove useless in providing newbies any assistance in hitting the ground running. Raise total skill points on creation, and make Cozad gyms better. New guys have zero chance of ever making it to even a midtier org without donations.

  39. Guys I’m off my arse busy and will get payouts sorted tomorrow evening. @Alfred has notified me of an error in my post. Prize winners adjusted above. Apologies. Even with the MMA final loss, Frank Brown had the most accumulated pts throughout the tourney and wins the overall while Hung Young Wang remains the winner of the MMA leg.
