Possible change for DTT 2009: [Winner: Challenger count only if tie for Main Tour]

Assuming poll result for Challenger matches part 1 is b/ or c/ (there will be some challenger matches in DTT OOP), how important should these Challenger matches be considered compared to Main Tour matches ?

a/ Challenger matches count the same as Main Tour matches.

b/ Challenger matches count less than Main Tour matches (e.g. twice less).

c/ Challenger matches count only if there is a tie for Main Tour matches (priority should be: number of picks Main Tour, then, if tie, number of picks Main Tour+Challenger, then, if tie, number of SRs Main Tour, then, if tie, number of SRs Main Tour + Challenger, then, SR shootout).

d/ Other (please, explain in the thread)

It seems that everybody votes for solution c/:

c/ Challenger matches count only if there is a tie for Main Tour matches (priority should be: number of picks Main Tour, then, if tie, number of picks Main Tour+Challenger, then, if tie, number of SRs Main Tour, then, if tie, number of SRs Main Tour + Challenger, then, SR shootout).

So, priority is:

- number of picks Main Tour then,
- number of picks Main Tour + Challenger, then,
- number of SRs Main Tour then,
- number of SRs Main Tour + Challenger then,
- SR shootout.

The goal was to favour number of picks (let us call it (c1) ). Another alternative (c2) would have been following priority:

- number of picks Main Tour then,
- number of SRs Main Tour then,
- number of picks Main Tour + Challenger, then,
- number of SRs Main Tour + Challenger then,
- SR shootout.

You can reply in this thread discussion if you prefer (c1) or (c2).

- SR shootout.

Poll is now closed. So, DTT rule in 2009 will be:

c/ Challenger matches count only if there is a tie for Main Tour matches. Priority is:

- number of picks Main Tour then,
- number of picks Main Tour + Challenger, then,
- number of SRs Main Tour then,
- number of SRs Main Tour + Challenger then,
- SR shootout.
