Can I just copy @ATJ-Lucko on this one?
I updated the rules, so no.

Copying Picks:

- If you blatantly copy another person's picks, your picks will not be counted, and you will be barred from making picks for the next 2 events. Repeat offenders will be barred from the rest of the season, or from participating permanently.

just some questions.

how are you gonna determine if someone is copying or just making a similar reasonable picks?

How are you gonna determine whats in people mind?

So does it go by who posts their picks first? if the first person to post their picks "pick" all the betting favorites can other posters be allowed to pick those betting favorites too?

How close do the picks have to be for it to be considered copying? 50%, 60%,70%,80%?

You seem to be the only one worried about this rule.

I put the word "blatantly" in there for a reason. It'll likely be clear when someone outright copies someone else's picks. If it's not clear, then there will either be no penalty or we'll all discuss it and figure out if there is an issue.

MK-Ultra.

No one is worried about multiple people picking the same exact fighters to win, this isn't the Survival Pool where we're only picking fighters to win. Of course people are more likely to pick the betting favorites, it happens every single event. The issue is when the exact same fighter/way of winning/round are picked.

We'll determine that on a case by case basis. Otherwise if it's a simple announced percentage, it wouldn't stop someone from copying picks and simply changing a round on exactly the right amount of picks to make it look like they didn't copy someone else.


Here, I'll sum it up (directed towards everyone.) Don't copy another person's picks. If you don't have the time to come up with your own picks, or you don't have the creativity to come up with your own, then just don't play the fucking event. The fact that we even have to add this rule is lame. This is supposed to be a fun game, with a little bit of competition added in. Feeling the need to win at all costs, and copying someone who has a good track record of good picks, just removes the fun from everyone involved. Simple as that.

i won this round and if 1 or 2 or all other posters would have copied me i would have zero problems with it, and i will never complain now or in the future if someone blatantly copy's my picks, you were the one that made a big stink over it.
