My tip, for what its worth, is to work on your sparring more than anything else in training- you get more fights, and the stats you build from the points earned, seem to have more direct influence over your performance that the old strength/speed/cardio.




I'm thinking the same thing Cord. While I was working on the others I think fist and foremost if I continue to spar to assign points, when I fill the necessary attributes then I can go back to the training if necessary.

On Advanced I am 16-6 and having a hard time breaking into the top 10 because those guys have all the skills and I only limited skills. I just started lvl 2 of kickboxing and lvl 2 of BJJ. Things I can do with the exhibition characters I cannot do yet with my fighter Decu Las Vegas. Soon hopefully so that I can stop getting beat.

I should have done what the majority of people are doing, play on Beginner. I would already been undefeated and a belt holder and probably retired already. But no, I had to kick it up a few notches. When playing the demo Beginner was too easy. Experienced was okay. Advanced was a challenge. Expert; forget it. But now where Advanced was a challenge, without having the skills it is really a challenge. Well, I never did anything the easy way before so why start.

You wouldnt be undefeated on an easier setting Dereck- your opening stats re. takedown/submission defence, mean that if you come up against a CPU that likes to take it to the ground (and you will), you are pretty much screwed if all you have done is work your 3 conditioning attributes.
It takes tens of sparring sessions, and allocation of skill points to nothing but takedown and submission defence, until your ground game even begins to register, even on default difficulty.

Have to say as well, that so far, I have found it pointless to attempt any submissions. If I go to ground, I am strictly a hammerfist from in the guard guy. Works ok, but I still keep it standing wherever I can - my kickboxing is now level 3, and my grappling is still level 1 !!

I'm playing right now. I may be addicted. I hate having 84 submission offense, and still not landing a Kimura! Come on, Sherk!

Frighteningly close to my real-world experience, LOL.

My plan was slightly different. I trained speed A LOT, and rely on moving faster than my opponent in less time to either counter or sprawl. My defenses are not fantastic, my character is just fast enough to counter-attack effectively.

I am on XBL (X-Box Live).

I am now 22-8 and just won the title from Anderson Silva in the 4th round by knock out by the way of full mount hammer fists; first time I met him; and that is on Advanced. My title defense is against Bisping; I owe him for an earlier loss but I'm not the same fighter.

When I started it said I was a Mixed Martial Artist. As I am a 3rd level BJJ, it now says I am a BJJ. My kickboxing is only just completed level 1 and working on level 2.

I think I've got most of the submissions figured out. I have already submitted several fighters however never submission of the night or fight of the night. Lots of KO of the night but that's it. Nobody I have met so far can beat me on the ground in Advanced. I was countering everybody and was in full mount a lot. Loved tapping out many guys that had good Jujitsu.

The thing I just found is for many moves or counters; while you are doing one then do the next before the first is done and then it makes it more fluent. In the past I'd wait for one to be done then start the next; this could lead to problems or reversals. Now this doesn't always work but for many it does.

Really enjoying this. Will continue this career before starting another one on another weight class.

I definitely need some tips on how to land a submission. I've got 92 sub offense, but I can't seem to get it, no matter what I do. It's getting pretty frustrating. I've been knocking out lightweights for 15 fights straight, and my next title defense is against Kenny Florian. Any tips on winning by submission?
