You know what, lets approach this from a mathematical prospective...

We get 8 picks. Which means each pick represents 12.5% of our total score. So with having 9 picks effectively the champ gets a 100% score plus a 12.5% from the extra pick. So 112.5% altogether. Which means if we want any new system to be less of an advantage the bonus has to be less than 12.5%. The 20% originally suggested would actually be an increase in advantage. Personally, I don't think the current system is too far wrong, so I'd suggest a 10% overall bonus is fair.

GOD DAMMIT!! There's no Sandow smiley :cuss

Where is everyone getting 20%?

And before you get in a huff... I'm not actually saying that was what you did... just explaining a hole I see in the system.
tells alot about you if that's how your integrity is.

and if you think that's what's happening.....then just edit your picks after the champ makes his.

I hope that makes sense.

Also, a 120% rule can be manipulated just as easily as the extra pick rule. If you post the same picks a your opponent you are guaranteed to win.

That rule could work better with regards to titles changing hands on a sensible amount of times, but not as a solution to picking the same picks. Which in fairness hasn't really been a problem. I only remember one incident and that wasn't a title match, it was a tag match and didn't effect the outcome anyway.

We can tell if someone is copying picks on a regular basis, and if someone is, we can stop them. Don't see the need for change personally.
I feel like it went without saying, but I agree with this entirely.

This is what happened to me. Powell copied my picks, so I had to edit them.

Okay, so out of everything mentioned, my personal favorite way to determine champion's advantage would be as follows:

Champ gets 8 picks, just like everyone else. Chooses one to be his "team captain." Team captain gets a 1.5x increase to his/her points. So 30 becomes 30 + 15 = 45. 27 becomes 27 + 13.5 = 40.5.

If the potential bonus is too high, we can "cap" it. Meaning, at best, the champion can only get a bonus that is 10% of his total score. So if his "captain" scores 30, but the champion only scored 100 total on the week, then the 15 point bonus becomes a 10 point bonus. It's a cap.

However, there is no "base"; so if the champ picks a terrible captain, he gets less points. If the "team captain" scores 6, then the champion only gets a 3 point advantage because half of 6 is 3.

So it gives the champ, at most, a 10% advantage, which is nice for him. But it makes him earn that advantage by picking a good "captain."

As far as the other rules, I have to agree with Diabetic Dave now that I think about it.

So, for now, we'll do what we've been doing: if someone is blatantly copying picks on multiple occasions to gain an advantage, then we can tell them to stop being a bitch about things and start being a gentlemen. Also, as I stated before, anyone is welcome to PM me their picks if they are in a big match and just wanna play it safe. That's a respectable decision and there's nothing wrong with that.

You could do that, but I wouldn't post phony picks, because ultimately that's going to end in a discussion. Just PM your picks, I found it to be very handy in a triple threat situation (+ seeing people freak out thinking you didn't make picks was fun )
