    Oh and P.S I wasted 5 bucks plenty of times Just on Santos and Smolka :))) But it’s that future 5 dollar bill that’s gonna net me another nice size profit….

    You know…I’m just scrolling around RG, open this thread, and BAM I’m reminded of how much money these two guys cost me lol. Happy Friday. This gap between cards is terrible.

    Just as many ties as there used to be. I am not sure there is any system that will cut down on this in GPP With more than a 1000 entries.

    One thing they could do is give points for non-significant strikes. Like .10, just to add some variance. But that will devalue grapplers more again.

    Idk how I feel about the new roster/salary structure. But I do like the new scoring system.

    This is because 2 fights were canceled, which significantly decreased the player pool. Plus, obvious fighters like JJ/Khabib/Conor were all highly owned and scored the highest.

    Moving from 5 fighters to 6 dramatically decreases ties over the long run.

    Agree with Brett. To add, the 2-fights that were canceled had fighters that were likely going to be popular (I.E. I initially had KG in my Cash Lineup & Kennedy in my primary GPP lineup. Honestly, I would have scaled way back on GPP’s had the fights canceled in advance of having reserved my entries. In this case, the proverbial early bird didn’t the proverbial worm!

    To add, I wish that DK would rethink only giving 40-points for a late stoppage in a 5-round fight. When a decision is worth 30-points (and given that it dependent on the style of the fighters), the new rules could actually result in rewarding bouts that go decision versus a stoppage. Anything over 20 SS and there is greater value going to a decision and that doesn’t even include, take-downs, advances, etc. Call me crazy, but I still am of the belief that stoppages should be more rewarded than decisions

    6 fighters does help which might be the best change in the whole new system. The sad part is most cards are only 12 fights with a canceled fight being the normal. I would also like to see the 100 points awarded to a 1st round finish. 75 points 2nd round. 60 points 3rd round and 50 points for the championship rounds. That way like what Sun points out a stoppage should have more value always than a decision.

    I’ve tried googling, to no avail, and of course DraftKings doesn’t explain it. What is an Advance (ADVC) +3 PTS, and why did bibulative just get 9 of them for 27 pts in a single fight?

    to half guard, to slide control, to mount or to back control is an advance.
