Tennis Tipping Poll

Hey everybody, I've been thinking of changing the Tennis Tipping game to include the PAW scoring points. You still have to pick every match, but there will be more incentive to go for the under dog. On one hand, it will make the game more interesting and exciting, but on the other hand it might become too similar to PAW, and lose it's originality. So i'll leave it to you.

Please vote.

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

I think leave it the way it is. It will look like PAW too much. I think a tourney like Zagreb is the perfect reason why to leave it cause all the faves aren't winning. As long as there are TB's in every round like there has been I think it's fine the way it is. Thanks for running this game.

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

Agree with the above. Leave it the way it is. It was created on different terms and I wouldn't like seeing it similar to another game.

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

Yes, keep it the way it is. Adding points will force people to start risking and go for some underdogs and this would distort the nature of the game, in my opinion.

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

I prefer the original rules as well. Anyway, I think it's too early to start changing the rules as we only have three weeks' experience.

Maybe it looks a bit problematic that the latter rounds, SF and the final, quite easily go to the TB, as players tend to play it safe at that point with so few matches to choose from. But again, it's too early to tell and I think the way people play this game could still change as players start to take more chances or adopt different tactics.

And thanks for introducing TT!

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

Its definatly better to leave it just the way it is. Otherwise it would be just like PAW.

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

I say leave it the way it is - we don't want all the Games to be too much the same.

Re: Tennis Tipping Poll

Keep it the same way as it is. Why change a good thing when it's getting more popular all the time?
