*Official* MMALinker Ban Betting Fights!

Postby BrdrOkm69 » Wed May 18, 2016 7:36 am

Hey guys,

Regular account bets are thankfully almost completely a thing of the past. The excitement of a loser-leaves-town match was unparalleled, but the consequence of someone leaving Linker forever really hurt site traffic, cost people incredibly high post counts, and took away from good discussions.

In trying to come up with a fun alternative to account betting, we've decided to give ban bets a try. The goal is to still have some of the trepidation of an account bet, with none of the long term repercussions. If they end up not working out or have any really noticeable flaws, there will be no hesitation in disallowing them.

The Rules
1. To keep site traffic up, we can't have Linkers placing super long bets, so the maximum possible bet duration is 10 days.
2. Bets have to be made for a whole number of days. No half days, certain number of hours, etc.
3. Bets have to be placed BEFORE the start of the entire event that the fight is on.
4. No doubling up on bets, but "best of" bets are allowed (example: best of 3, best of 5, etc.), and those can span multiple events.
5. Bans will start at some point the day after the event that the fight is on, whenever myself or another mod get around to setting them.
6. There can be no overlap in ban duration. For example, if you place a 10 day bet on a Saturday night fight, the earliest you could could have your next bet set for would be a fight on the following Wednesday.

How to Place a Bet
Placing bets will pretty much follow the same process as it does for regular sig betting. To have your bet be legitimate in the eyes of myself and the other mods, it must be posted in this thread. The proper format for posting it is as follows:

Your name vs. Your opponent's name
Fighter you have vs. Fighter they have
Duration of ban

Example:
Me (Demian Maia) vs. Beastmeng (Matt Brown)
One Week

Your opponent will also have to post in this thread to confirm the bet. If they post elsewhere on the site confirming it, but not in this thread, the bet is invalid.


*Losing a ban bet won't affect your points or league standing in One Month Fantasy MMA. If you're banned during the start of a One Month Fantasy draft, your missing of picks will result in adherence to the standard skipping protocol outlined in the One Month Fantasy MMA Rules Thread.*

Losers should have to make daily posts in a dedicated loser thread, detailing what a loser they are.

Côté (me) vs Cerrone (you) for 3 days?

People can duck the loser thread but if a ban bet is confirmed in this thread there will be no ducking. Only bans.

Sure, they can duck a loser thread, but then they get labeled a duck, and calling someone a duck is incredibly fun, while having quality posters "banned" doesn't really do anything positive for Linker.

Dude, nobody here wants to risk seeing uncle Phil have to leave, his posts and gifs of The Dude are gold and Linker wouldn't be the same without him.
