"MMA Playground, you absolutely suck!" - Kaleb Kelchner, impersonating Chael Sonnen impersonating a professional wrestler.
Here's the deal, MMA Playground is outdated, clumsy, and has "hot bouts". In it's favor, it has camps and fantasy wagers. My suggestion is a predictable one, and that would be making a move to Tapology for making picks in "Civil War" competition.
The only issue with Tapology is the lack of camps, but there's actually a rather simple fix for that. You can "follow" members of Tapology, and the captains of each team can follow their members to easily tally up points. I don't mind Playground too much, but I think removing hot bouts from the equation is a big bonus for competitive play.
I'll be including a poll for you guys to vote on it, although this is absolutely unofficial, and just a tool to gauge interest so JDH can get a gander at how people feel. I'm sure there are some out there who actually prefer hot bouts being included, so let's have a discussion!
