    Fantasy teams aren't fair..

    It seems like the people who end up winning the fantasy always have groups with people who make really bad predictions.. like for instance, the top few guys in this weeks lan have 3/4th of Instinct.. like how is that fair? Why should they win because they have a few people who really don't know much about MLG in their grouping?

    I do realize this is just a halo fantasy tournament but still :P

    I think there is a trick to getting good players. I always get players that end up not playing so well :P

    Well it goes by how you rank people in your little draft.. for someone to get 3/4th of instinct means that everyone in their group didnt put them in their top 4..

    This is supposed to be like fantasy football or baseball. You get to pick the players that you think will perform well in the game. In this case there are too many people so it gets put in to random picks but more weighted towards the top players that you picked which gives you a more probability of getting them.

    Every LAN they get like top 6 regardless if they're on the God Squad or not...

    Edit: Victory X is usually in top 10 aswell.

    It could be people using private leagues and boosting other people's teams by picking very bad players. Just a possibility.
    Hit me up for anything!

    Why do you care about private leagues? Only the public leagues matter anyways. If people want to have their fun in private leagues then let them.
