Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

On another forum??? Here on mtf PAW the two players would be tied if they had both used the same number of picks.

Imho, it is necessary to make small correction in rules, item 5.
To replace
Quote:
PAWn: Your Pick over Your Pick's Opponent

E.g. PAW1: Murray over Federer
on
Quote:
PAWnn Your Pick over Your Pick's Opponent

E.g. PAW01 Murray over Federer
The same - in items 5.2 and 5.3.
Then the manager can make the link on rules at the description of a format.

Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

what happened with picks I made today? why were they written as PAW 22-26 with red? and also accepted as PAW 13-17? Have I done something wrong?

Hello.

For questions like that turn to the tournament's manager. S/he's the one who can answer you.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

Question on a tie-break-rule.
Quote:
1. The greater number of correct picks.
What is "correct picks"?
I assumed, that "correct picks" = "win picks" + "lost picks".
Code:
N .Player..........P.. W.. L.. Pts  Avg    Max win pick
25.JeremyEli_______26  11  15  171  6,6    27
26.Hensafmurrafter_26  15  11  171  6,6    16
Here fifty-fifty, on 26.
Hensafmurrafter considers, that "correct picks" the same, that "win picks".
Who from us is right?

Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

Why can't we make all our picks from the same round, it doesn't make any sense to me?

Wow that's an interesting question really.
Some time ago I was very interested in PAW history and read almost the entire PAW archive on WTA site where this game had started introduced by Simon. You know in the beginning it had been a simple game with very simple rules and the one about which you are asking here had not been part of PAW. Then the game had started to grow, many people had joined and more and more rules had been introduced and implemented. At one point there had been that discussion about having a qualifying PAW for entering MD of PAW as there had been a cut-off system. Many things in PAW (like the formula for calculating points) had been kept a secret and had not been discussed publicly. I have not seen that stipulation being discussed. So how and why it had been implemented I don't know. But all this had happened very long ago, 2003-2004.

I also have a question - about WC. What if a player asks for a WC after the deadline, receives one but for some reasons doesn't play in the tournament? Then what, do we count this WC towards player's 3 allowed WCs or not? And this is not the situation discussed in 17.5 in the PAW rules where the manager can take the WC back if the player doesn't post any picks in the next 12 hours. This is in case there are more than 5 players asking for WCs. But what if this is the only WC player and the manager has no reason to take the WC back. So the WC was received but was not used - then does it count?

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

I offer for discussion

Variation in item 2 of rules.
Quote:
(For instance, you might choose 4 First Round Matches, 4 Second Round matches, 2 Quarter Finals, both Semis and the Final. Or you could choose 12 First Round matches and the Final.)

>> The only stipulation is that you may not make all of your picks in the same round.
To replace on
Quote:
(For instance, you might choose 4 First Round Matches, 4 Second Round matches, 2 Quarter Finals, both Semis and the Final. Or you could choose 13 First Round matches.)
Variation in rules of WC: to change 17.2, to exclude 17.5 and 17.6.

Quote:
Wildcards

17.2 Wildcards - how many of them are available in the tournament, and when are they granted?

The number of WCs is limited to 5 per tournament. Additionally the manager can grant extra WCs for new players only.

WCs are given to players who have not made a commitment until the deadline or wish to change their tournament after that. If the player has made pick without commitment, it is considered, that it has asked WC. Obvious inquiry WC is not necessary, and if it is made without picks it is ignored.

17.3 Wildcards - how many of them can I take during the whole year-season?

Three.

17.4 When can I withdraw from one event and switch to another?

You can do that only if you don't have any picks posted at the moment (and later) of the beginning of the 1st match main draw of the tournament from which you want to withdraw.

how will those changes improve the game? What is the purpose for them to be implemented?

The rule about WC is intended for managers.
When I am the manager, I am strained with complex bureaucratic rules of granting WC. I cannot understand, why cannot simply write
Quote:
PAW01 Player1 over Player2
Also should write
Quote:
WC please
PAW01 Player1 over Player2
The offered variations release the manager from extra work.
