  2. You're the man @Joel-Soto_1301 @rockzo19 you both MVPs. Rock is more of an mvp than you though Joel due to your youth. That Joel, like everything else, is entirely your fault. Thank you both again. 

     

    One step closer to 99%.

      Be safe! Were you able to evacuate or do you have to stay?

      Thanks all. Left house in town and went to parents; they're located in area with a line of trees that'll hopefully serve as windbreakers to mitigate hurricane. 

       

      My main concern is the rent house in another town: I'll drive up to inspect damage tomorrow, but I ain't looking forward to dat deductible.

  8. "As they always say, to be the champ you need to beat the champ."

     

    Who says this?

     

    The furthest I can trace that idiotic phrase back to is George Foreman.

     

    It's not in the rulebook. 

     

    It's a cop-out for bad -- or questionable -- judging. 

     

    It's lazy thinking.

  9. How'd you get ultimate team/mp on UFC 2 done. Teach me sensei.

      Oh man, it's been ages. Didn't the servers shut down as well? All I remember was playing a crap ton of matches and getting lucky one day with the challenges being all relatively easy. I also remember having a CAF from every weight class in case there are specific weight class objectives

       

      Winning 4 matches in a row or aka becoming a champion was a pain in the ass. Got extremely lucky, fighting against spammers which made it easy to parry and counter. 

       

      My only tip is: preserve. I'm not even close to being the best player. 

      Persevere*

    2. TheLakota

      TheLakota

      I'm going to have to just break down and make a CAF with max height for a smaller weight class. Everyone I've fought so far has been a freaking giant with insane reach. 

      AFAIK mp is still open, though the ultimate events may be unavailable. I'll have to go check. 

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Oh yea do that! I thought that would be a given because of the fact that there's no tradeoff for maxing height. 

       

      Just know that your fighter's skills will pretty much always suck because of the stupid EA pay to win formula. It's hard to make your stats increase playing legit. 

       

      The only thing you can get lucky with is acquiring the 3-5 star moves (which could be a punching/kicking technique) or some ground transition move or submission) which could help. 

       

      And because of this it's so rare for fights to finish in the first round because of the weaksauce punches unless either of you gasses out quickly which makes it easier to knock out somebody. 

       

      One final thing, accept getting wrecked every once in a while because you will :P either due to skilled opponents or guys having the best stats/skills acquired. 

       

      Also once I got those mp trophies out of the way, I tried to play online as much as possible even if it's not needed just because the payout is more. 

       

      Good luck!

      I think Jose slept with that idiot's wife. That was unnecessary.

       

      Under Pride rules Max wins hands down. This ain't Pride rules though. Still, they've got to do something about the 10-point system. I had the fight 2-2 with round 3 being the deciding factor, and I told my buddy via WA I had a sneaking suspicion Volk was going to be given the nod.

       

      As a judge, if you truly score a fight based off striking first, then from a technical standpoint Max did enough to win round 3, given he outstruck Volk, albeit by a razor-thin margin. I still felt it was a round that could've gone either way. Guy's a workhorse though and seems like a legitimately nice guy, so I can't be too upset at the decision. Hopefully Max just moves up.

       

      That fight kinda had shades of Lawler-Condit, though the latter had an even more pronounced striking total disparity and yet the champ was still given the nod (maybe because his strikes looked more telling, who knows).

       

      I knew barring a hat trick, Marty was going to dominate Mas even more than he did Tyron. Poor casuals at BWW were muttering about how his strikes were doing little to no damage, to which I retorted "but dem headbutts bro!"

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Agreed about the Max Volk fight. Could've gone either way but I feel bad for Max because he essentially got booted out of title contention at featherweight and will probably never sniff lightweight gold either just because of the beating he took against poirer which is a sign of how stacked that division is. 

       

      Regarding the Mas fight, it was insane seeing the votes saying that Mas will win. It was something like 65-35% Mas. Either people were just rooting for their favourite guy which I don't blame them; It's hard to like Marty, or people generally thought he was going to win. 

       

      At the end of the day, we've seen this time and time again that wrestlers tend to prosper against strikers and even BJJ specialists.

      Lots of casuals man, I'm telling you. They see a highlight reel knockout and the hype train enters ludicrous speed/plaid. 

       

      I liken the Masvidal hype to that of McG: casuals just knew he was going to spark Khabib. Easiest money made in awhile!

       

      To be fair to Jorge though, his TDD is quite impressive, and if he'd ever learn that smiling/talking shit while willingly backing up to the cage is not indicative of great generalship/fight IQ he could stand a shot with his scrambling ability. Won't happen though, as Gamebred is the same fighter he was ten years ago.

  11. The Old Guard was surprisingly good.

      Enjoyed watching it last night and hoping the hinted-at sequel will happen!

      Same here. While I thought the backstory sections and lore were interesting, what impressed me most was the way in which the actors complimented each other as a real team. 

       

      Too often I smiled as they manipulated an adversary into their teammates' line of fire, or provided assistance by way of reloading or exchanging weapons.

      Right?!  I REALLY want this on disc so I can frame-by-frame through the fights and catch every coordinated action.

  12. List of buff, "clean" female fighters:

     

    * Amanda Nunes

    * Rousey

    * Cat Zingano

    * Jessica Andrade

    * Claudia Gadelha

    * Weili Zhang

    * Valentina Shevchenko

     

    Any other bigoted viewpoints need addressing?

      I'd probably add Megan Anderson, Claudia Gadelha, and Holly Holm to that list.

      Megan is my girl

       

      Claudia is listed above

       

      Holly is..well.. she's got dat high kick. 

  13. Spec Ops is a good game. Outside the cheap AI and wonky controls, I've been pleasantly surprised by it's mature look at shell shock/battle fatigue/PTSD.
