So here is the new thread for the betting game, if anyone see's anything I should add to the OP let me know ASAP! I think I pretty much covered everything that should be in there though. I will be working on adding up bonuses and post everyone's starting total at some point today.

Here is what I have for players and what the totals are, any issues let me know ASAP. And if anyone else wants in let me know as well. Also just a reminder of the penalty now for missing UFC cards, $500 the first time and then the penalty doubles every UFC card you miss after that.

@Anik no.... there is a bonus for placing top 3, 1st 25k, 2nd 20k and 3rd 15k (plus any of the other bonuses)

You think it would be better if everyone just started at the same amount and we didn't do any bonuses next time?

Yes. For next season, not this one.

I think the bonuses should just add up on your current bankroll. Like if you hit an 8 man parlay, you get your parlay winnings PLUS the bonus. See what I mean, it's like an XBOX Live achievement lol

So if you win the season you would just start the next season with the same amount as everyone?

For next season, yeah. Everyone starts at 25,000.

This is my opinion though.

I think te winning and one time bonuses are fine but the bonuses for everyone would be nice to see throughout the season. It would get people to take more risks

Yeah this looks awesome @poir, but wow had no clue that the bonuses would create such a gab. What Anik said makes sense, maybe it would be better to give them out during the season and start the new season next year with everyone at 25,000.

Or give 10,000 - 5,000 - 2,500 for the first 3 places. But I'm cool with whatever, looking forward to lose my brand new 27k at UFC 155

I wouldn't be opposed to it if that's what people want to do, I guess it would make it a little more fair to newcomers to the game. I would have to tweak the bonuses and get rid of some of them but it could work, but let's see what others feel like doing.

Does anyone else think we should get each bonus amount added to our total as we go through the season? (You would only collect it one time) And then everyone would start the new seasons with the same amount?
