Predict The Seed(SEND ROUND 2 PICKS NOW!!)W5- Johannesburg, Vina Del Mar, Zagreb

Hello! Since there are many new games being made, I decided to make one myself. I think this game is a good, casual and relaxed one that people will enjoy. The point of this game is to predict which of the 8 seeds will struggle and lose there match. This game is called Predict The Seed. Here is how to play!...

RULES: I will post all of the main ATP tourneys in the beginning of the week of the tournament. I will post all of the 8 seeds in a column. Your job is to predict what will happen to these seeds. By copy-pasting the top 8 seeds from each tourney to your post, you choose which seeds will struggle, lose, or move on without a sweat like they should. You have 3 options that you can choose for the seeds destiny...

1) Through- By posting through next to the seeds name, this means that they will move on in easy straight sets.
2) Struggle- By posting struggle next to the seeds name, you are saying that the seed will win but struggle by doing so. The term struggling in this game means that the seed will win in 3 sets OR in 2 sets going over 5 games all in each.(6-0, 6-7, 6-0; 7-5, 7-5; 7-6,7-5; 7-6, 7-6)
3) Spoiled- By posting SPOILED next to the seeds name, you are saying that the seed will lose in any way, shape, or form.

SCORING AND REGULATIONS: Here is how the scoring works:
If you choose Through, the points go as follows...
Seed 1- 4
Seed 2- 4
Seed 3- 5
Seed 4- 5
Seed 5- 6
Seed 6- 7
Seed 7- 7
Seed 8- 8
If you choose STRUGGLE for the seeds the points go as follows...
Seed 1- 18
Seed 2- 16
Seed 3- 15
Seed 4- 13
Seed 5- 12
Seed 6- 11
Seed 7- 10
Seed 8- 9
If you choose SPOILED for the seeds the points go as follows...
Seed 1- 30
Seed 2- 27
Seed 3- 24
Seed 4- 21
Seed 5- 18
Seed 6- 16
Seed 7- 14
Seed 8- 13
You will pick the seeds' destiny for ROUNDS 1 AND ROUNDS 2! Remember, no matter how bad you do in Round 1, you can continue to pick in the round 2. If you have any questions, suggestions, or problems, send me a PM at Ozone. Thanks, and enjoy playing!!
After each week, I will calculate your score and make a standings chart. If you miss a week, that is fine! I know there are many games and your schedule may be busy, so this game is casual. However, if you do get your picks in on time, they will not count.
