Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

I think the Davis Cup idea is good, but we should put the restriction that the player picken cant be picked again in the whole DavisCup year.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

I love the DC idea, but I dont like the qualifiers idea. It kinda discourages new players.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

Yes, but qualies will be played only by players who dont make the cut, although i dont think its a very good idea.

Yes, if it's decided to have a cut, then qualy will happen. Otherwise, it's senseless.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

there's no point in having qualifying in Suicide, it's not like we have too many players at the moment

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

I feel

that there is no point in having suicide qualifying, even if there are alot of people playing in future..

point is that, qualifying mostly takes place on sat and sun, and basically , we can say that this will just be a 2 day tournament ( do or die mentality ) for those involved in qualies.

So if some big shot ( like tursonov wanting to play qualies to get used to court ) decides to play qualies, i'm sure all, if not most, will pick him, and imagine he loses. there will be no qualifiers

suicide is unlike tt, where there will surely be a winner , cause its a head to head comparision, so unless we change e system ( like sending picks to managers ) , i find it hard to implement qualies.

not to forget that, there are not alot of pple

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

Yep qualifying in suicide is pointless. There aren't enough players to worry about it and I think this game is better with more players anyway

No limit for number of players by countries because final score will be generated by the division of the total amount of points made by the team divided by the number players so all countries will have the same condition to win, even the country is made by only 1 player.
We still can set a limit of players by country just in matters of realism.
