I'm sorry Mike, but your idea to give midweek events some sort of minor boost compared to weekends has not provided ANY incentive for orgs to not book fights on the weekends.

I am tired of having no fights all week then a bunch on the weekend. I've had 5 fights on the same weekend before. I'm going to have 5 more again soon.

Mike, please make all days EQUAL for attendance and whatever boosts there are. No matter how small an advantage, everyone WANTS THAT ADVANTAGE. Simply making week days less sucky doesn't fix the problem.

This is a very simple fix and I know i'm not the only one that is sick of having all his fights on weekends.

Thanks! ;)

Im all for this, BUUUUUUT I think we should give Mike time to fix this. Hes finishing private jets and has a few other things to look at.

So while i think this would be a great addition, I dont think its urgent.

The org I work for runs three events a week. I am sure we are not the only ones to do this.

+1 to this! We at TTFC run Tuesday night events, but in general it is pretty annoying how the current system has been implemented so that all Org owners stack events on weekends only :(

I agree with Dave. Fights always comes in bunches on the weekends. I have 6-7 fights this weekend. As an org owner this also forces me to book up arenas way ahead since everyone wants the midsize (2-3k) ones. Im booked up two months ahead.

While I do agree with this for org purposes and I understand what you're saying, I don't see this change making a huge difference of when org owners will hold events. Reason being, is that I prefer to fight on Saturdays that way I have Sunday with a fresh ticker reset and two automatic rest sessions. Now say on Saturday night I had an easy win and my energy only went down to 90% or so. Now I'm already prepared to be back into training on Monday and everything runs as smoothly as planned. Even if I have a tough fight and I lose a lot of energy, I now still have those 2 automatic rest sessions and a fresh ticker reset. It may not get me back into training on Monday, but those are two training sessions that I don't have to miss out on.

i voted yes. in this case i think the end (more mid-week events) justifies the means (unrealistically giving mid-week events the same attendance as weekend events).

If you fight on saturday your sunday's are moot cause you'll be at low energy with your tickers paused anyway. Fighting on Monday would be better since you cannot train on sunday but your tickers will be frozen for sunday and monday. But with the current attendance setup, you don't hardly ever see events on Mondays

the only benefit to fighting on the weekend is that your tickers will definitely be paused for the sunday rest sessions. the rest sessions themselves are not an extra benefit because you get those no matter when you fight. it may seem like you're getting something extra from it, but you're not.

*edit* and yeah, as sabaton said, fighting on a monday will have your sunday tickers auto-frozen as well.

Are you the one who voted no? Because the poll is to change the realism to be unreal. IE even across the board so that we can see events on every day of the week, not just the weekends.

Instead of having some set value for everyday of the week, how about have it based on some org metric? maybe give orgs over a certain rank an incentive to have events on the weekend, while lower ranked orgs have an incentive to have them in the middle of the week. It could also be based on the rating outcome of the event and just rely on the org owners to predict the rating for the bonus.. so say, if event X event happens on Sunday-Thursday and makes over Y rating, it gets no boost, however if X event happens on Friday-Saturday and makes over Y rating, it does receive a boost. Otherwise, if the event doesn't make the rating #, it will see the same numbers no matter what day of the week. This gives an incentive for the big orgs to do their large shows on the weekend, but spreads out the rest of the shows.

Yeah, but if I can use the Sunday rest sessions to get an easy 10% I don't have to waste 2 extra training sessions on rest. If I fight on Monday and lose 15% energy I now need 3 rest sessions as compared to 1 if I fight on Saturday. In the long run, you'll end up getting more training sessions because those 2 rest sessions add up. And if I'm using the 2 sunday rest sessions, I'm not wasting Tuesdays that I could be training.

Oh let's see

1 this weekEND
1 next weekEND
Then 4 next weekEND
Then 4 more the following weekEND


Come on people! Why the hell would you vote No for allowing events to occur every day of the week! I'm quite positive you can't possibly enjoy having all of your fights crammed onto 1 or 2 days of the week!

Events are allowed every day of the week. I'm sure no one who voted voted that events should only be held on weekends.

This poll has nothing to do with when events can and can't be held rather attendance and hype boosts on the weekends compared to midweek.

I have no problem with making everything equal throughout the week and weekends but does that mean arena fees go back to one flat rate for all 7 days? If so I support it completely.

Exactly my point. The attendance boosts are highest on the WEEKENDS. Thus, most org owners are always going to try and schedule their events for the WEEKENDS. It does not matter if the difference between Saturday an Wednesday is small, everyone wants as big an advantage as possible. That means SATURDAY is king. And subsequently, that means 90% of fights are getting booked on the WEEKEND.

I am proposing to make every day EQUAL in all regards so that organizations can book events on ANY day of the week without incurring a penalty.
