I don't get the new system? Can somebody explain that to me..and do I need to apply the new scoring system this week in Halle?
Thanks in advance!
Right, the new system awards points to each pick you have like the ATP does, depending on how far they get in a tournament. For examples, in Halle, you currently award points according to.....
R32 - 20
R16 - 45
QF - 90
SF - 150
F - 250
That means, that say you correctly pick Federer as the tournament winner, you receive not only 250 points for his final win, but also 150, 90, 45 and 20 for his other match wins.
The new system proposes to be more in line with the ATP so that you receive the amount of points the player gets in real life. For example, predicting a federer tournament win would earn you 250 points, not 565 points.
This allows better weighting towards tough predictions in earlier rounds, and means you can't come top 10 in FITD just because you picked the winner correctly over someone who had for example, all quarter finalists correct compare to your 1 quarter finalist.
The Points for Halle would change to....
R32 - 20
R16 - 25
QF - 45
SF - 60
F - 100
Does that make sense? I.e. If Fed makes the final against Djokovic, that match is worth 100 points more to each player who picked either Fed or Djoko, rather than an extra 250 points.
Hope that makes sense, let me know if you are going to implement it.
