Hi folks,

 

just starting my Org, I see my 205 division stacking up with fighters, while 135 and 265+ are hardly filling up, any idea, why?

It's so easy, just make the smallest or biggest fighter possible, not just those in between :-)

 

Plus doing a 200lbs fighter is not the smartest thing, very tough to cut down to 185, especially if created with no conditioning, and small for 205,

any ideas anyone?

No clue... I think I might have a 265+ guy that is not in a contract now that I think about it.

205 is a fun division where you will see KOs unlike 135 and 145

 

Plus you can just weight gain or lose and fight at the other 2 divisions. 

 

At RISE 205 was strangely the division to fill up the last but now that its going it is very very popular.

I know... I've been there and done that, but I never, not from day one, did I ever offer less than $1K across the board.

Also a lot of managers like to be underweight for the division or lighter than their opponents because it gives a good speed advantage which is good for standup (idk about TDs though but I assume with more speed it helps).

I personally like the strength advantage from being a heavier guy in the weight division... I really like the KOs... sure there can be problems with that, but...

 

Anyway to get back on topic. 205 is a good weight class for being able to fight in three weight classes easily. You can fight a little on the light side at 265 weight class, tou can fight at 205 by maintaining maximum weight for the weight cut or you can use weight loss supps to drop down to 185 relatively easily. Not that I did a lot of bouncing around between weight classes, but I could if I wanted to, so it has that appeal to some people.

 

Also I fought at 185 and 205 IRL so I just like that weight class.

In the 8+ years I've played, I don't think I've ever created a Super Heavyweight. Huge fan of the Lighter weights though, wish there were more.

Not sure why but i tend to roll with the smaller guys. All of the guys i have fighting atm are under 170, but i do have a project fighter at 205 and 265. See how they do in a few months from now.

I also am the same. 205 and under mostly. I have 1 guy at 265 right now that I moved up from 205. I like the lighter fighters but I keep away from 135 and 145 so far.

Okay so Im the owner of Torcida MMA.

I think Warwynd is being unfair and making me look like a monster when all I tried to do is helping.

First of all yes Im struggling with money so in the begging Im not able to offer the best contracts.

Second of all I tried to help him by explaining that flying isnt necessary, but he started to get mean and writing in a way like Im stupid when all I wanted was to help, and of course that is frustrating.

205lbs is a great playground for Ko fighters, while decision machines can still do great as well. It is action packed and with a lot of options.
You can pretty easily move up or down in weight and cover 3 divisions in one career.

Let's just clear the air, here. I never said you were a monster. Just that the contracts you offered were garbage. Which a $500/$500/$500 contract is NOT good under any circumstances. When you started talking about the flying thing, I looked all around for anything supporting that and not one forum thread had anything that sounded like it supported what you were talking about. I spend a lot of time on the forums as you can see. I also checked the news feed, which is where something like that should have appeared. It wasn't there.

 

However, after doing a more exhaustive search, I found a few things talking about the locations being turned off and so I talked to one of my old friends from the forums whose opinion I trust. He confirmed that locations are, in fact, turned off and that, for whatever reason Mike opted to send that information out as a mass e-mail instead of putting it on the spoiler/news page, or even in a thread in the forums. I never recieved said mass e-mail, because it went out before my return to the game.

 

So, with that said, I do owe you a bit of an apology, but it was not me that started getting "mean". I simply said that the contract offer you sent me was unacceptable. I could drag up the PM conversation and hash it out here, or... Be the bigger man and say I'm sorry for my part in the argument and bury the hatchet. Hopefully, you can as well, and we can move on. No hard feelings.

 

Good luck with your organization.

Dude you almost did the same thing with me on the location issue, told me "I am full of shit" to be precise, I wonder why you think you are omniscient, it s a god damn text based browser game, it s not rocket science to go to your own trustees and circle of trust and all, folks try to help others in any way they can, peeps ask questions others answer, not a big deal.
