2010 FITD Changes

I will post questions and you can post answers on those questions.

1. The tiebreak rule is to go by how many correct picks the players had in each round, (for example)
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after each round, then they'll just remain tied. YES or NO?

2. To play all tournaments in week or make vote thread for one tournament? Example: Doha, Brisbane, Chennai. YES or NO?

Re: 2010 FITD Changes

I think it might be easier to do a poll but if we're doing this...

1. Yes for tiebreak
2. No for voting

Re: 2010 FITD Changes

Ok well since no one spoke up against the tiebreak rule, I'm going to say that the tiebreak will come into effect for the 2010 season. So managers, be aware of this!

and I know dusan had this extra tiebreaker in his exhibition tournament which was for whoever posted their draw first but I don't think we should have that during the season. I'm thinking people won't like that they have to submit their draws right away just to get a higher placing. We'll just keep it so that if after counting the picks for each round and you're still tied, you'll just stay tied.

Re: 2010 FITD Changes

Is there any sense behind this rule "qualifier-qualifier" in round one, to write either qualifier 1 or qualifier 2? Just get rid off it and don't award any points for this match.

Re: 2010 FITD Changes

then would people who waited for qualifiers to be placed also get 0 points even though they waited and knew which player they were picking?

Re: 2010 FITD Changes

I see what he is saying in a situation like Marseille, where there is a Q vs. Q match and the last day of Qualies is today when the main draw starts. I find it a bit silly, but you can't award just 0 points if the Qualies appear in the draw before main draw play begins and people can make an actual pick.

Re: 2010 FITD Changes

I don't think it's that much of a big deal. If you get lucky, you'll pick the right qualifier and get that extra correct pick for the round. If not, then too bad. I think luck is just part of the game.
