Poll: Predict-the-Score system

Current system
Quote:
Both players have incorrect winner in the PTS match: +2 points for every set predicted for the winner

Correct order of sets for:

1 set – 1 point
2 sets – 4 points
3 sets – 7 points
4 sets – 10 points
5 sets – 13 points


Correct scoreline for:


1 set – 3 points
2 sets – 6 points
3 sets – 9 points
4 sets – 12 points
5 sets – 15 points

Note: The PTS is not counted when there's a retirement.
Game difference and Number of games System
Quote:
example 1
player A - Federer 6-4 6-3 = +5 game difference and 19 games played
player B - Federer 6-4 7-5 = +4 game difference and 22 games played


result - Federer 6-4 7-6 = +3 game difference and 23 games played.

player A -> 2 game difference + 4 games played = 6
player B -> 1 game difference + 1 games played = 2


-> player B def player A

example 2
player A - Federer 6-1 1-6 7-6 = +1 game difference and 27 games played
player B - Federer 7-5 6-7 7-6 = +2 game difference and 38 games played


result - Federer 7-6 6-7 7-6 = +1 game difference and 39 games played.

player A -> 0 game difference + 12 games played = 12
player B -> 1 game difference + 1 games played = 2


-> player B def player A

If there's a tie, the player with the closer game difference will advance. If the picked player loses or if there's a retirement, the match doesn't count for GD purposes

Re: Poll: Predict-the-Score system

Game difference is only Luck for mug players.

PTS is the best! PTS is for the Great Players from TT.

Kostas Kastoria is the King, is the Legend, is the Pantheon of Tennis Tipping.

Saulin, Felipin and Niltin are the players that have the mission to continue the Greek Legacy.

Hellas Team with the Bless of Baghdatis and Kostas.

I am a Mug Player with Luck, for me would be best the Game Difference.

But we need to vote for the best option to the game.

And the PTS are good for the Legends and for The True Beautiful Sexy TT.

Kostas Kastoria is the King, is the Legend, is the Pantheon of Tennis Tipping.

Saulin, Felipin and Niltin are the players that have the mission to continue the Greek Legacy.

Re: Poll: Predict-the-Score system

Both systems are a bit of a lottery. I like correct order of sets, but not set scores, and 76 60 earning the same as 60 76 seems a bit unreal to me. However tie-breaks are complicated enough, so an extra "tier" giving more points to the correct score in the correct set would probably not be a good option.
GD does give a better indication of who is closest to the actual result, but it's more complicated for managers.

May I suggest a separate poll for managers/potential managers/ex-managers only, to establish whether a switch to GD would have support from their viewpoint?
