HOW TO PLAY - GENERAL RULES.

The objective of the game is to accumulate the most points by correctly selecting the "winning fighter" or if available the "winning fighter with the method" for each fights during the event.

For each winning fight correctly selected, you will be awarded the designated amount of points of your selection.

The structure of the MMAprophet league is divided into the regular season and the playoffs. In the regular season, which generally runs during 8 events.

The playoffs happens after each 4 seasons played. Each winner of a season gets a free pass to the playoffs. Since 16 players participate to the playoffs we will select the top players with the highest total of points during the total of the 4 seasons to complete the selection process.

The playoffs and the season will run simultaneously and those who participate in the playoffs will also be able to play the season. Since strategy is a part of the game, the participants will be able to vote differently for the season and the playoffs.

Regular season

Playoffs

After each 4 seasons, an elimination tournament consisting of three rounds to determine which player will advance to the final round, dubbed the Ryu Cup Final.

In case any of the top 16 players can't participate at the playoff then we will invite the next in line (17, 18, 19 etc...) until we get all the 16 players.

Any ties in the standings are broke using the following protocols:

1- The player with the greater number of games won
2- The player with the greater number of games played

Players are matched up using a "top-to-bottom" formula:

#1 vs. #16
#2 vs. #15
#3 vs. #14

For each event, the player from each matched up with the most points will move on to the next round.

Any ties in the matched up are broke using the following protocols:

MAKE PREDICTIONS/SELECTIONS.

Each Player must submit his prediction by selecting an available choice from each fight.  A Player must submit his prediction for every fight prior to the Deadline by following the instructions on the Event notification email or on the website.

The button to vote generally become available 3 days before the event and disappears when it has reached the deadline. The deadline is generally 2 hours before the start of the event.

SCORING.

- A Player must correctly guess the winner of a fight in order to be awarded the Scoring Points.

- If you bet on the winner and the method then you must correctly guess the winner of a fight and the method of winning in order to be awarded the Scoring Points.

- By way of example, assume you select fighter X to win by KO and fighter X wins by Decision then in that scenario you don't get any points because he won by Decision.   To be rewarded with the points you need to predict the winner AND the method. It's all or nothing.  It pays more points but it's more risky.

In the event an event or a fight does not occur as scheduled (e.g., due to cancellation, postponement, etc.) no points will be awarded.
