Re: changes for 2013

My idea: Move this thread to the games section so that it gets more attention. Being buried down here doesn't help its popularity. Also, perhaps a deadline can be put in the title to prevent confusion on which peoples' picks count?

Re: changes for 2013

Was just wondering why we have to put all 4 semi-finalists and both finalists, when we could just put the 2 semi loser's, and final loser, but if this is how it has to be then fine.

Re: changes for 2013

I wouldn't mind adding a new aspect to the game: Interviews.

(Assuming I don't get banned which people think I will )

Re: changes for 2013

1) Freak banned?!

2) Diego with the german flag? Why so?!

3) I have a proposal, which is maybe complicated. But what I "reproach to this game", it is that you pick you SF, F, W in the beginning and after nothing happens except a daily update. I suggest to be able to pick either the same winner or a new winner in the QF, according to the remaining players in the draw, in order to have a bonus. In that way, people will be more involved.

4) I like the idea of Freak to move to another section.

Yes, but I did not know.

to honor my fellow TT.

The spirit of this game is to make it as painless as possible for participants, with only 10 minutes a week can participate.
4) I like the idea of Freak to move to another section.
Now I ask the board members and were to consider my proposal to be in the games section.

J99 is the best way, is a matter of habit.

Re: changes for 2013

The game is great as it is. Perhaps instruct that the picks need to have one player picked from each quarter of the draw. Just for arguments sake really so that everyone is playing the same way.

Can I suggest that rank goes on best 12 performances (or best 10, best 15)? That way people can start late if new to the game and also regular players aren't penalised for going on a holiday!

Re: changes for 2013

I agree with J99, I think it'd be easier just to list 4 names instead of 1 names 3 times and 1 name twice. If we pick them to win it's obvious we pick them to the final and the semi, it's not listed 3 times in the results table, imo we shouldn't need to list it 3 times here. Something like this should suffice no?
