2006 PAW ranking system poll

In 2006 the PAW game returns better than ever and you get to decide which ranking system we’ll use:

1. An exact copy of the 2006 ATP Champions Race and Entry Ranking. This means 13 mandatory tournaments (Grand Slams and Masters Events) plus the best 5 optionals.

2. A system similar to the WTA tour, all tournaments are optional, best 18 count. This will also include both a race and an entry ranking, but no mandatory tournaments.

3. If you don't care about the ranking system, please vote option 3 or don't vote at all.

Just vote in the poll above. Voting closes Wednesday November 23 at 24h00 CET.

ROGER FEDERER

Re: 2006 PAW ranking system poll

This is a game and pretty much all players play every week so i suggest we should allow every result to be counted in our score ... if you play 40 tournaments, 40 tournaments go into your score! It makes the ranking much more easier to run!

Re: 2006 PAW ranking system poll

the Entry System will start with 2005 results, right?

Option 1 is like ATP Rankings? Entry Rank counts ALL tournaments and Champions Race counts GS + MS + TMC + best 5 results.

im right?

Winner: / Stuttgart / Viña, Miami, Umag / Stuttgart / Viña / Davis Cup /
Final: / / Paris TMS / Sauipe, B.Aires, Monaco, Umag / Acapulco / Paris TMS / Tokyo

Almost. Entry ranking is also GS + MS + TMC + best 5 results, but from the previous 52 weeks. Just like the real ATP Entry Ranking.

As for the previous post, that's not gonna happen, it's gonna be either 13 mandatory + 5 optionals or 18 optionals. We don't want to award people for playing all 40 tournaments.

Re: 2006 PAW ranking system poll

I chose WTA system, but I wouldn't mind to have ATP system either.

One thing I think we need to review is the PAW ranking points we give out for winning the tournament. Nothing's wrong with the current ones, I just think that it's too big/too many points awarded.

GOOD LUCK: Nicolas Kiefer- Tommy Robredo- Andy Roddick- Andre Agassi- Andrei Pavel- Juan Carlos Ferrero- Dominik Hrbaty- Mardy Fish

Re: 2006 PAW ranking system poll

I totally don't understand the ATP system no matter how many times it's explained to me... and with PAW what do you mean by mandatory tournaments? Does that mean you HAVE to play all GS and TMS events?? Because AO is pretty much out for me.

Yes mandatory means, these tournaments count even if you don't play 'm. So if you're unable to play the AO you'll score 0 points for this one.

Re: 2006 PAW ranking system poll

I picked the WTA cos I usually suck @ big events

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:
And I adore Radiohead

Yes, got that... just that mandatory kinda means compulsory so I was thinking maybe if you can't play one then suddenly you have no chance at all of making TMC because you are banished from it or something

I can handle 0 points for one tournament. I guess I may find a net cafe in the city while I'm there and MAY be able to scrape together some picks anyway.

Thanks for the clarification

Re: 2006 PAW ranking system poll

Thanks for the PM Cervantes and I have registered my vote and hopefully this referendum result goes the same way as my vote.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
