Predict the Future

PREDICT THE FUTURE


Do you enjoy the ITF Futures circuit? Following the start of the careers of the future top 10 players? Why not trying to test your skills at this level?

You are invited to join "Predict the Future"

About "Predict the future"


The game is very simple and won't demand more than 10 minutes per week of your time All you have to do is taking a look at the entry list/draw of each tournament of the week and picking one player per tournament. YOU MUST SEND YOUR PICKS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE (PM) TO VaiBrasil!!! This way copying will be avoided and risky picks will be more rewarded as noone will see which they are I won't see each player's picks until I send mine to other player, hopefully you all trust me

This game won't consist in one "Predict the future" tournament each week. You will earn points for each tournament, according to the stage the player you picked reached. At the end of the season, the player with more points accumulated will be the champion So you should better joint the game already for the first week, otherwise you will have a disadvantage for the rest of the season. Still, new players can enter anytime

NOTE: you should also send one "2nd option pick" for each tournament of the week, in case the player you picked withdraws from the tournament.

Scoring system


You will earn points according to the stage each of your players reach, following this distribution:

Code:
1st round - 5 points
2nd round - 15 points
Quarter-final - 30 points
Semi-final - 50 points
Finalist - 70 points
Champion - 100 points
Example


Let's get the week of April 28th as an example. 10 tournaments were played that week. All you have to do is picking one player per tournament. Let's suppose one player picked:

Brazil F2 - Ricardo Hocevar
Colombia F3 - Michael Quintero
Great Britain F7 - Conor Niland
Italy F11 - Alejandro Fabbri
Korea F1 - Colin Ebelthite
Mexico F5 - Santiago Gonzalez
Romania F1 - Cesar Ferrer
Spain F17 - Komlavi Loglo
Turkey F6 - Marsel Ilhan
USA F9 - Luka Gregorc

You will score according to the stage your picks reached. So, this player would score:

Brazil F2 - QF = 30
Colombia F3 - CH = 100
Great Britain F7 - CH = 100
Italy F11 - SF = 50
Korea F1 - 1R = 5
Mexico F5 - SF = 50
Romania F1 - 2R = 15
Spain F17 - QF = 30
Turkey F6 - F = 70
USA F9 - SF = 50

TOTAL = 500

The player will score 500 points from this week. The player with most points in the end of the season will be the champion.


So, what do you think? I don't expect much people coming to play this game, but if we have at least 4 or 5 posters I think this can be fun All stuff will be posted in this thread. If you want to play, just let me know by saying "I want to predict the future" right now, in this thread

If we get people enough we will start in the week starting on May 19th.

Cheers,

Caio
