    What if our OTN picks were affected? How does that work?

    Honestly, I have no idea what we do. Half the participants picked both Whittaker and Gastelum, everyone else (other than Poindexter ?) picked one of them for a bonus.

    1. We could go with what we have, and half simply loses half their 'OTN picks right out of the gate ?
    2. Or we could agree to only include 2 'OTN picks for everyone. In that case, we can''t just pick and choose fighter names, because the fights will be over (once everyone responds). So 2 top of the list picks, or 2 bottom of the list picks?
    3. Or we could agree to ignore 'OTN pick bonuses entirely for this card (and potentially future cards that this happens to)?

    Personally... I'd vote for not including the 'OTN bonuses at all.

    What does everyone want to do?

    You didn't change your pick, you lose it. But I'll go with the majority.

    They changed it hella last minute, so it wasn't like people had fair warning to change picks and were just lazy but since I'm gonna win this whole fucking thing like every other time, IDGAF.

    With only 2 bonus options in question, why dont we drop 2 OTN bonuses.

    This way, those who secured points can still collect up to 2 correct picks. Those who chose Whittaker or Kelvin, still have equal opportunity to earn those other 2 bonus picks.

    Normally I would agree but it was super last minute.

    3 votes for no bonuses, 2 for IDGAF, 1 for count as-is, 1 for count 2. So not counting the 'OTN bonus is how it will be done, because no matter which way ckauffman28 voted, wouldn't have tied up the majority vote.


    Fedorlei Gomipierre - 28
    Sakara=Excitement - 24
    Spoon - 24
    ATJ-Lucko - 23
    ckauffman28 - 19
    Poindexter - 19
    Cat--Smasher - 12
    SandyWH - 12

    For the record, I was actually just calculating each scenario, so I could post the results as quickly as possible when a decision was made. The only difference would have been simply bigger numbers for everyone with counting just the top 2, or everyone getting bigger numbers and with me being tied with Fedorlei Gomipierre for 1st place in every other scenario, and no other position changes. So it's not like there was much of a change anyways.

    Should this rule be added to the official rules, or just go specific circumstance to specific circumstance, and vote after?
