I am not going to change the odds back, as it would just confuse it, but I am going to implement a massive reform to the betting system.

After all, we don't want it to turn pointless like our rep system. Or maybe we have already reached that stage?

Of course when I do change the odds I get non stop complaints, and people seem to forget how the system works.
even with the high odds system it'd take at least 10-11 events to get into the millions, and thats if you play the odds to always make a profit. the new guys you see with millions got donations from some generous members.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Anyways, as far as the betting system goes, thanks for bringing that to my attention. Is that how a real betting system works too or just ours?


EDIT: Btw 7k on Daddy, just because I don't like BJ's attitude and I think that he might come unprepaired
You say this like you've been betting in here for years. You just joined last month and are telling us how it should be run. Just to let you know a couple months ago fights were always 1/1 against 2/1 and sometimes 3/1 depending on the fight. Not to long ago some people decided they wanted to up the odds to allow people to make more points. I personally like the way it was in the beginning. I felt like I was earning my spot in the top point leaders by making smart bets, now people that have been here a month are already over a million. It's just no fun that way. Everyone that keeps complaining about the odds need to chill and realize this is not real money and it's just for fun. You are the same people that will be complaining when we stop posting vBookies because we got tired of hearing all this crap. Such little cry babies lately

No kiddin'. Every fight used to be 1/1 pretty much and now everything is at least 2/1
