Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

This doesnt really affect the game itself, but I think we should have a hall of fame to honour some of the people who dont play much or at all anymore that did a lot for the game like yemok, superhoops and tangerine_dream to name a few.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

Hi Snowwy. I would like to suggest to enable the possibility of picking first days, even if there are only 2 or 3 matches scheduled. In WTAWORLD the suicide game works like this, and adds lots of interrest ( and mass suicides ) because of it.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

Im not sure about this, I like it other than the fact that tournaments start on a Sunday. I find that many people forget that some weeks it starts on Sunday and that starting Monday works better..we could have a poll though about this.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

I would like to have DavisCup.

I would also like to have exact positions in the tournament and not only being eliminated on day5, or day 6, or whatever.


What about qualies?

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

Summary of Suggestions

Im just summerizing what people have suggested.

Hall of Fame - To honour the great players who dont play anymore
Sunday Start - Start Sunday, this leads to more excitement as there are only two or three matches and mass suicides.
Davis Cup - Not sure how this would work
Exact Positions - Not sure how this would work again unless you'd have a lot of ties.
Qualifying - Not sure how this would work


More suggestions would be nice or clarification of a couple of the current ones

Not everybody, but could be a lot, depending of course on the picks and surprises in scoreline.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2008

I know this gets mentioned every year, but I'd like to see it possible to be able to pick matches later in the day if you miss getting a pick in before the day's play starts.

I think it's fair enough because there are ALWAYS people around to say whether a selection is late or not (just like PAW when people are always told if selections are late)

Back in Suicide's early days people were allowed the occasional instance of this. It's just that occasionally I don't get home from work in time to make a selection before play starts depending on what tournament is selected for this game. (In TT I try to make sure I commit to an appropriately timed tournament but in this game I have no choice which one will be used)

What about qualies?

Davis Cup - maybe people should form national teams. Davis Cup is usually played on 3 days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Every player in the national team make their picks. The total amount of points made by the team is divided by the number of team. Each "group" of Davis Cup has their following pontuation for the the day of winning pick ex:
World Group -
Day 1: 10
Day 2: 20
Day 3: 30

Zonal Group 1 - 1st round (ex: Europe Group 1, Americas Group 1 and Asia/Oceania Group 1) -
Day 1: 6
Day 2: 12
Day 3: 20

Zonal Group 1 - 2nd round
Day 1: 3
Day 2: 6
Day 3: 10

World Group Play-Offs
Day 1: 1
Day 2: 3
Day 3: 5

A right pick in Day 1, for example, would give 5pts, a right pick on day 2 would give 10 and a right pick on day 3 would give 20 points.4

Example for 2008 season:
Feb 8 to Feb 10 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - First Round - players made their picks on World Group 1st Round matches, Europe Group 1 1st round matches, Americas Group 1 1st round matches, Asia/Oceania Group 1 1st round matches. Total amount of points made by the team is divided by the number of players of the team. The team with the highest score (total points/number players) in each tie goes to the Quarter Finals
Max points made in World Group: 240
Max points made in Zonal Group 1: 160

Apr 11 to Apr 13 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - Quarter Finals - same thing as first round but picks are made on 2nd round matches of each zonal group and on quarterfinals matches of World Group. New points system is used for Zonal Group 1, as, if we use the same, the zonal group matches would "mean" more than world group matches
Max points made in World Group: 120
Max points made in Zonal Group 1: 80

Sep 19 to Sep 21 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - Semi Finals - same thing as first and second round but picks are made based on Davis Cup World Group Semi Final matches and Davis Cup World Group Play-offs matches.
Max Points made in World Group: 60
Max Points made in World Group play-offs: 40

Nov 21 to Nov 23 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - Final - points are only based on picks made in Davis Cup World Group Final.
Max points made in World Group: 30

What about qualies?
Exact position - impossible, unless we change the system we use to give points
Qualies - only if we set a number of players that can commit to a torney. Or with we only pick in the last round of qualyfing but again, we would have to used a different point system than ATP like:
International Series (175 points to the winners)
Winning pick on Qualyfing Day: 5
Winning Pick on Day 1: 10
Winning Pick on Day 2: 15
Winning Pick on Day 3: 25
Winning Pick on Day 4: 40
Winning Pick on Day 5: 75
Winning Pick on Day 6: 120
Winning Pick on Day 7: 175
