Predict The Seed(SEND ROUND 2 PICKS NOW!!)W5- Johannesburg, Vina Del Mar, Zagreb

Hello:wavey:! Since there are many new games being made, I decided to make one myself. I think this game is a good, casual and relaxed one that people will enjoy. The point of this game is to predict which of the 8 seeds will struggle and lose there match. This game is called Predict The Seed. Here is how to play!...

RULES: I will post all of the main ATP tourneys in the beginning of the week of the tournament. I will post all of the 8 seeds in a column. Your job is to predict what will happen to these seeds. By copy-pasting the top 8 seeds from each tourney to your post, you choose which seeds will struggle, lose, or move on without a sweat like they should. You have 3 options that you can choose for the seeds destiny...

1) Through- By posting through next to the seeds name, this means that they will move on in easy straight sets.
2) Struggle- By posting struggle next to the seeds name, you are saying that the seed will win but struggle by doing so. The term struggling in this game means that the seed will win in 3 sets OR in 2 sets going over 5 games all in each.(6-0, 6-7, 6-0; 7-5, 7-5; 7-6,7-5; 7-6, 7-6)
3) Spoiled- By posting SPOILED next to the seeds name, you are saying that the seed will lose in any way, shape, or form.

SCORING AND REGULATIONS: Here is how the scoring works:
If you choose Through, the points go as follows...
Seed 1- 4
Seed 2- 4
Seed 3- 5
Seed 4- 5
Seed 5- 6
Seed 6- 7
Seed 7- 7
Seed 8- 8
If you choose STRUGGLE for the seeds the points go as follows...
Seed 1- 18
Seed 2- 16
Seed 3- 15
Seed 4- 13
Seed 5- 12
Seed 6- 11
Seed 7- 10
Seed 8- 9
If you choose SPOILED for the seeds the points go as follows...
Seed 1- 30
Seed 2- 27
Seed 3- 24
Seed 4- 21
Seed 5- 18
Seed 6- 16
Seed 7- 14
Seed 8- 13
You will pick the seeds' destiny for ROUNDS 1 AND ROUNDS 2! Remember, no matter how bad you do in Round 1, you can continue to pick in the round 2. If you have any questions, suggestions, or problems, send me a PM at Ozone. Thanks, and enjoy playing!!:wavey:
After each week, I will calculate your score and make a standings chart. If you miss a week, that is fine! I know there are many games and your schedule may be busy, so this game is casual. However, if you do get your picks in on time, they will not count.

What about a game where it is less time-consuming similar to Suicide where you have to pick for each round of a tournament the name of 1 seed which will lose ? Or if you think no seed will lose, pick "none" ?

In QF, this will apply to first 4 seeds.
In SF, this will apply to first 2 seeds.
In F, this will apply to first seed.

I am thinking about some new games (any similarity with existing games in MTF are pure coincidence):

- Predict the Past: this game is the same as Tennis Tipping except that this is not based on the matches of the day but the matches of the previous day. Ideal for people who feel frustrated because they don't send the right pick.
- Double Account Tennis Tipping (DATT): the game is only reserved to players with a double account. The goal is that you pair with your double account and play against another player who has a double account.
- Tennis Losing Streak (TLS): if you are fed up with losing and losing because you send wrong picks, this game is for you. The more you lose, the better ranked you are !
- For Yves the Draw: this is the only game Yves is allowed to play, hence the new name of the game. The objective is that you fill in the draw of a TT tournament with the 32 accounts Yves. has on MTF.
