Ok yeah obviously it mirrors real life a bit more but isn't the point of the game so that everyone can experience it. My point is that it will come down to who has good stats and who doesnt and then the players actual skill level kind of goes out the window because he couldnt grind gor 9 hours traight every day like others.
Realism is great but really we want it to be accessible to all and truly skill based so it would only make sense to have all participants be at or around the same level.
There is always the argument that oh anyone can get a flash KO but really it's not going to happen if one guy's stats are like 45 and the other dude is like 96 which is a realistic situation. I can see what you guys are saying but i dont know it just seems kind of flawed and too inaccessible.
At the end of the day it's a game and people want to compete on a level playing field based on actual skill and strategy which can go out the window if certain things are'nt implemented to make sure that situation doesn't happen.
If we all had real fighters from the UFC the stat levels wouldnt be hugely different and the styles would even it out aswell allowing everyone to compete and actualy have a chance.
It's just a huge deterrent for people who cannot devote that time to the game but still want to participate in the tournament. I know it's a simulator but also a game that is supposed to bring the experience home and it just sucks knowing this could hinder many peoples ability to have any sort of fun in this tournament.
