Like idea about 1 point - as bonus for participation

I agree with most people:

No Sunday starts
Deadline should stay as it is

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

no sunday starts and deadline should stay start of play.
1 consolation point for day 1 kill is also fine by me.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

No real opinions here, one way or the other. I just don't play enough to know the nuances.

All I know is that the managers do one heck of a job! s

I love my girls.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

Indeed, why would we do that? I would say there is no reason, people have choice for the matches of the day! In this case you will only have 1 deadline and not 2.

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

this would get a bit chaotic I'm afraid, as some people who picked Sunday will forget they did and pick Monday again and then they pick so. wrong, but are still allowed to pick Tuesday and so on

can't help it, but I still like the idea of picking Sunday matches just as every other day though; I know lots of people will forget in tournaments which start on a Sunday and writing it in capital letters in the thread title won't change that I assume, but for me this game, in its current form, is all about picking one winner every day on which matches are held and if this is the case for Sunday, so be it

won't keep me from playing though as the majority seems to have a different opinion here

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

I would keep with the current rules, but I have 1 suggestion.

In weeks when there is one tournament with a 28 player field and one with a 32 player field, please take the bigger field automatically.
The game really doen´t make much sense if there are only 3 matches on a monday

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

Only say I really wanted is what's already been suggested.. knowing which tournament is going to be held in advance to help know which tournament to play in TT (I often like to play opposite to what I play in TT so I have an extra interest in both events)

Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

I feel that there's no need to commit into the tournament if the thread is up 1 week early. It will just flood the thread.

You can just post your pick before e start of the match and u will be in.


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 2010

That IN rule is changed (I guess it takes time for players to get used to it), posting Day 1 pick would be considered commitment, and losing right away be awarded 1 point.


These are the distribution. If someone has an idea to improve them, just post.
(I tried to award SF/F picks more, considering how hard and rare it is to win a title.)
