The Web's Longest Running Boxing Manager Simulation
BigDawg Boxing is the internet's longest running web-based boxing manager simulation. The objective is to manage a gym full of boxers to world titles. You'll scout your opponents, develop fight plans, make strategic career decisions, and talk trash in the press. Along the way your boxers can win regional titles. As your fighters win regional and world titles you level up and earn rewards.
The ultimate objective is to hold the world title belt in every division at the same time. Part of the game is socializing with managers from all over the world. Since 1999 our 68,000 registered players have managed nearly 100,000 boxers in more than 2,000,000 boxing matches.
Register, create a boxer, and have your first fight within 10 minutes!

Sundays to be "freeview" days
Effective tomorrow Sundays will be the day where non-supporting members will have access to all game functions available to supporting members. Think of it as a weekly reminder of what you're missing out on by not being a supporter :)
This means that as a non-supporting member you have full access for 30 days after signing up and then every Sunday thereafter.
We strongly encourage you to become a supporting member. This game does require a fairly large membership base just to break even let alone pay the folks that work on it something for their time.
Becoming a supporting member also allows us to reinvest and improve the game and add new features.
Changes to the BOT experience
We'll run this way for 6 months then revisit and tweak based on results.
If your boxer is auto scheduled and a bot opponent is not available, one will be randomly modeled after an existing boxer to face your boxer. Bottom line: EVERY manager that wants a fight for his boxer will get one. Hard stop. If that doesn't happen it's because the programmer has been drinking on the job again and messed up. Bitch us out in the support forum and it will get fixed.
All bots will be modeled after boxers with a better than .500 record.
The longevity of a bot, expressed in fights will be int(100 - (rating * 5)) This means that bots rated 20 and above will be generated just for a single fight and immediately shut down afterwords. 0 rated bots will have the greatest lifespan with the # of fights decreasing as the bots go up in rating.
Bots will be scoutable (fight reports will be visble), except obviously not the ones that only get one fight.
Unless it is a bot, for a boxer to show up in a competition list it's manager will have to have logged in within the last 7 days.
In the competition list fighters will be listed by the level of the manager in ascending order. The farther down the list you go the more likely your boxer is to get his ass kicked.
Don't be a pussy.

PCs can no longer transfer credits between gyms
PCs can set your membership to auto-renew
Only supporting members can force fights
Only supporting members can save fighter links
Only supporting members can save fight plans
Cosmetic changes to gyms
Effective immediately gyms 30 days old or less will only be scheduled against BOTS to give them e breather before being pounded on.
Also effective immediately you will have to be a supporting member to be scheduled for a world or regional title fight.
Lastly only fights rated 2 or greater will be tagged for vacant regional titles
Game upgrade this weekend
There will be a game upgrade on Sunday to implement the rest of the monetization changes.
Effective Sunday if you have no credits OR have not set your auto-renew on, you will no longer be scheduled for title fights and you will no longer be able to fight more than once a week in each division. This is very important because eventually if you hold a title it will eventually be stripped due to inactivity.

Running costs for this game are several hundred dollars per month. We'd like to generate some revenue that will be 100% put right back into advertising to bring in new members and give us incentive to add new features. This is best for all concerned.
When we remonetize the game this weekend ($5/month) the following features will be available to supporting members only.
- Fighting for world and regional titles
- Unlimited fights (basic members are restricted to 1 fight per division per 7 day period)
- Force fights
- Duck fights
- Compete in tournaments
- Access H2H records
- Store fight plans
- Store fighter links
- Comment on blogs
- Store fighter links
- Access game stats
Basic members will still be able to play and enjoy the game and there will be nothing to indicated whether someone is a basic member or a supporting member. Basic members will have a 30 day grace period before restrictions kick in.
We hope that everyone stays with us as a paying member and look forward to revitalizing the game.
