I like CAF and As for weight class I like Welterweight, Light Heavy, or Middleweight. I have the game sitting next to me on the couch but I'm way to burnt out from exams earlier today.

Wow, just looking at a rough count of the people who have expressed interest, we would have at least 13 members already. If everybody actually joins, maybe we could do multiple weight classes to start out. Everybody just continue posting their top 2 weight classes. I'm curious to see if we can start bigger than I originally anticipated.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

Going to say it again...I LOVE the new submission system. To me, it's a great representation of what actually goes on when trying to lock in a sub. "You go this way. I go this way. You tweak more. I roll back the other way." It's crazy that you almost get a sense of how "tight" something is based on how slow your bar moves/how big your opponent's bar is. I've escaped numerous subs so far just by being very strategic with my movements. So much more tangible than the old system of "Ok...I guess I didn't spin fast enough...or my stamina was too low...or his submission skills were too high...?"

Also, one observation, playing with Heavyweights on simulation stamina is freaking brutal! I played Overeem vs Brock a bunch of times, and it's like the entire fight is in slow motion because it's so easy to rock each other, but then they gas so fast neither can finish. Then, you're both huffing and puffing the rest of the fight. It did make for some very exciting fights in terms of who could gut it out (this was one of the fights I escaped numerous sub attempts in), but it was a little too sluggish for my liking. I tend to think the lower weight classes are more exciting anyway, so I'd probably stay away from Heavyweight this year.

Also, did anyone who liked the Facebook page to get Alistair Overeem get the code emailed to them? Still haven't got mine yet.


Hm I just got an email with a code for a free box of steroids, I think I got Overeems email by mistake.

But... Gail Pennyfeather!

I haven't gotten to play much, so I haven't tried the realistic stamina. I'm not sure I'm going to like it even though it's a nice option to include for realism.

How are you guys getting the Overeem codes- just through Facebook?All I got from Amazon was the Ultimate Knockout Artist pack.

I cannot for the life of me figure how to use my CAF in the game. I created myself in the welterweight class, saved and everything. When I go into Exhibition, I don't see my CAF. I've also checkd the other wight classes just in case.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Haha, yeah, I know. Simulation stamina is rough, but really it's a smarter way to play. It's just with the heavyweights, they're so damn volatile. They're crushing people's skulls one second and panting like Fatty McGee's the next second. Maybe you could say Pennyfeather wanted to look svelte for his boyfriend and cut to 205, lol.

And yeah, the free Overeem code was through Facebook. That promo is over now though. He's also available to purchase individually, or by buying the Season Pass.

I haven't created a CAF yet, but it looks like this year's game sorts the fighters by "location". If you press left/right on the d-pad during fighter select, it basically scrolls through UFC/Pride/DLC. Maybe you CAF is stored on the DLC page...or maybe even its own page after that.

Wow, the custom logo and banner options are INSANE this year! I've actually been able to design a "Jew Claw" banner that is probably more offensive than I would have thought possible, lol. Kinda worried that not everybody would understand the joke and I'd end up getting banned from Xbox Live though, lol. Maybe if I just attached them to my CAF for Borat Sagdiyev...who I'll tell everybody right now, will be my Light Heavyweight CAF for use in this league.

Thanks Nate. I guess Mr. Pennyfeather could cut down to light heavyweight if we use that as one of our classes. Anyway, I'm about to put in some more time with the game.

Updated the OP to reflect the weight class choices that people have made so far. Depending on what kind of balance we get, people may need to be shifted. But at least you can look at the OP and see who has signed up where, and make your choice based on who you want to fight, how much competition there is, etc.

No problem. I'm telling you, Matt, just imagine the naked wrestling matches Gail Pennyfeather and Borat could have. Wait...no...don't imagine it. Eww...put your pants back on!

I tried playing online earlier and kept getting messages stating the server was unavailable. I was eventually able to download a CAF before it went back to the "servers down" message.

count me in for LHW.

On a side note, i was so focused on the customization aspect of Career Mode rather than even fighting! I was making custom tattoos left and right and putting them on my fighter and oh boy am i satisfied. I also caved in and bought the Early Access Pack and must have spent two hours just looking at all the different entrances/victory celebrations. This is one of the most in depth characterizations of all the games i've ever played.

I caved in and bought the game today. Do I just pick a weight class and create my guy? Any stat distribution rules? I'll play for a bit tonight and wait until tomorrow to create my guy so I can follow all the rules. I'm thinking of making a Heavyweight since that weight class seems to be lacking.

Basically, yes. I would advise you to create your CAGFC fighter from the general "custom > create a fighter" menu rather than through the career mode. In the past, we actually used to require this because of stat limits. But at least initially this year, we're going to use equalized stats, so nobody has to wonder "was it me or was his fighter better than mine?" But at least if you use a non-career CAF, you'll be able to edit him more freely, especially if we have to combine any weight classes...which brings me to my next point.

As far as you making a heavyweight, I'm fine with that. Honestly, I thought the league was more fun with UFC 2009 when we had a champion in each division. But that also comes with the understanding that your division could be small and you might be fighting the same 2-3 guys (or even the same one guy for a little while). It will definitely expand as people are allowed to create 2nd and even 3rd fighters though. You'd just have to be patient in the meantime. It is a great way to create rivalries though.

Nice to see all the activity in here tonight. I'm sure it will pick up as people get a little further into the game and the online servers stabilize.

This should be alot of fun once it gets going. It sucks that there isn't a spectator mode. That was one thing I loved about EA MMA.
