Arrow ATP Graphics Makers Tour - Australian Open '09 Commitments Thread

ATP Graphics Makers Tour

Australian Open '09






Welcome everyone, to the first MTF ATP Graphics Makers Tour Tournament - the Australian Open '09.

To commit, simply write "DESIGNER - IN" or "JUDGE -IN" in this thread.

Deadline for signup is Sunday, January 18th 11AM Melbourne time. (= CET 1AM, = EST Saturday 7PM)

Due to this thread being out a week later then predicted by the rules - THERE IS NO QUALIFICATION ROUND.
Everyone starts play on Monday.

To review rules, go to the Rules Thread.



***------------------News and AnnouncementS------------------***


All the news will be announced here, so you don't have to search the thread - everything important (deadlines, announcements, reminders) will be posted here, in the first post.
Here are the most important News and Announcements for this GMT Tournament, sorted chronologically starting from latest:


Wednesday, 14.01.
- Send Task Pool Tasks: You can start sending in Tasks for The Task Pool. Everyone please send 3 Tasks (not one as predicted by the rules) by PM to Harmless, until start of play.

Monday, 12.01.
- Designers Commitment Deadline: Entry List Deadline for Designers is, for this tournament ONLY, until one day before AO Main Draw start of play.

- Judges Commitment Deadline: Judges will be accepted to the Judges Entry List all the way until the GMT Quarter Finals.

-
Qualifications Round: For this Tournament ONLY, due to the thread being out a week later then normal schedule predicts, THERE IS NO QUALIFICATIONS ROUND.

- 1st Round Byes: The GMT Main Draw size will be out when we see how many Designers we'll have playing. Due to there being no Qualifications Round and, thus, no Seeding - if the Draw allows for 1st Round Byes for Designers, they will be given out in the order of application in this thread.

- Manager Wanted: The current Managers for this Tournament are Poiree and Harmless, and we are searching for a third Manager. Since GMT gameplay requires graphics to be posted every 8 hours, and we are both in the same timezone (Central European), we would need someone with at least 5 hours difference, so anyone from either North or South America, Australia or Eastern Asia would be great. Please PM Harmless if you're interested.

- Photo Wanted: Also, please, if anyone has a larger version of the court photo above, or knows where to find it, PM Harmless. The graphic above is a bit too messy, mostly due to the very small size of the photo available.

Re: ATP Graphics Makers Tour - Australian Open '09 Commitments Thread

Hey everyone and great to see you here.

We don't seam to be high in numbers right now, unfortunately, but, hey, at least noone has to worry about not making it to 2nd week.

Clearly this way everyone gets to play quarters.

If this is around our final number, I have two formats suggested for you, please think about it and let me know which one you'd prefer to play:


1. Wimbledon Final

A very, very long match - from the beginning of Main Draw play till the Quarters you will play against the Designer you were drawn with. That's a match 7 (or 8) days long. You will create new graphics according to the tasks every day, and in the end, the average scores of each set make up the final score. (final 1st set score = 1st set score of day 1 + 1st set score of day 2 + 1st set score of day 3 etc.)
All these 7 or 8 days you play against the same designer, and it's all treated like one mega match.


2. Mr Disney's Dream - Grand Slam Round Robin

We all play eachother, in a Round Robin format, everyone in one group. You play each Designer once and the final number of the matches you win determines whether you go through to the semis or not.

Everyone please decide which format you like better and post it here.



Also, you can now start sending me(by PM) the Tasks for The Task Pool.
Please remember that you cannot play your own task, so think of things you want to see others do, not what you'd like to do yourself necessarily.

Also due to the size of the draw - SEND IN 3 TASKS, not one.
You have until Monday to think of 3 fun tasks to add to the task pool.

And I almost forgot to say , I'm in as a Designer too, of course.

Hope we have lots of fun with this
