MTF Tennis Tipping #1(Houston)!!- Keep comitting until Sunday morning!!

New idea, how about pick the USER winners of a TT tournament!:D For example, lets say Troickitard vs. Foosimoo are playing in TT Indian Wells. You would pick the winner(same style as TT) and you would try to pick the most matches correctly. You will have a draw, opponent, differences, everything that the real TT has.

This game will start out on this thread, and maybe it will get bigger and we can go to other tourneys. Post any thoughts, concerns, etc.

U.S. Mens Clay Court HOUSTON will be first tourney held. It will ONLY BE SINGLES to start out with. Once the game grows in popularity, we can do doubles. Have fun and remember follow all TT rules. (If it is tied, the tie-breaker rules apply from the real TT, SRs- SR1 shootout).

Additional rules, I will post OOP of all user vs. user matches. The closest one to pick will be #1, all the way to 32.

MTF Tennis Tipping #1 - Houston

http://www.pawforum.ovh.org/stuff/ttlogos/ttlogo_m_red.gif


What is MTF TT?
Exactly like the real TT except you pick the USER winners of a TT tourney, this week in Houston. I will post all 32 matches, user vs. user. Your job is to send me a PM before the deadline (i will post) and beat out your opponent in a draw-size event. Follow all TT rules.
One exception to the real TT is MTF TT still uses SRs and PTS when tipping mathes, but they are used differentyl.
SRs will be called "DIF". Instead of saying 2-0 for Ozone, you would say the difference of correctly picked matches.
I.E.- OOP reads "Yves vs. chowdahead25 DIF 6" Your pick could read "chowdahead25 2" The 2 says that you would predict chowdahead25 to win the match 7-5, 6-4, 5-3, 12-10, any score with a difference of 2.
For matches with PTS after it, just predict the score.
I.E.- "trucul vs. hellas719 PTS 1"
Your pick might read "hellas719 8-4"

In but will it be only based on Houston TT tournament ?

As in TT, Final is based on real Semi-Finals and F of tournaments, MTF Final should be based on TT SF and F, which means real QF and SF/F of tournaments ...

Maybe, it would be nice not to restrict to a TT Singles tournament and possibly (to make a little bit of advertisment) to picking DTT results. :angel:

So how are we going to decide who wins if there is a tie???

Ozone
03-27-2009, 11:40 PM
You will have to put the score for one match. If its still tied, go to previous day.

trucul
03-27-2009, 11:56 PM
So how are we going to decide who wins if there is a tie???

Why not use same mechanism as for TT but:
- instead of SRs, you should pick from how many more picks the winner wins.
- instead of PTS, you should pick exact pick score.

Example:

OOP:
Ozone vs. trucul SR1 PTS1
Foosimoo vs. Drikke SR2
Björki vs. diego36arg SR3

If A picks:
Ozone 6-5
Drikke 1
Björki 0

And B picks:
Ozone 7-5
Drikke 2
Björki 1

And if real result is:
Ozone 7-6
Drikke 8-6
Björki 6-6

A and B have 3 correct picks each, so it goes to SR. A has correct SRs for Ozone (Ozone has 1 more correct pick than trucul), B has correct SR for Drikke (Drikke has 2 more correct picks). So, SRs is 1-1. So, it goes to SR shootout and Ozone wins on SR1.

If C picks:
Ozone 6-4
Drikke 2
Björki 1

Between B and C, players have same SRs so it goes to PTS. B has picked 7 for Ozone, so B wins on PTS.

trucul
03-28-2009, 12:00 AM
What if a TT player does not send picks ? Will it be considered as a w.o., so this will not count for MTF ?

trucul
03-28-2009, 12:02 AM
I am also thinking about the TT matches which last more than 2 days. You may not know how many matches are at the OOP in case there are 2 days. So, difficult to send a correct score. Maybe, it is better to keep only the SR as I propose in that case.

Drikke
03-28-2009, 02:21 AM
Tiebreak rules

Every round contains 2 PTS Matches

1) Correct # PTS matches (Only winners)
2) Correct # PTS correct

Example:
Player A: Drikke 7-5
Player B: Drikke 7-6
Result : Drikke 7-5 => Player A = 2 , Player B = 1

3) Correct PTS1 winner
4) Correct PTS2 winner
5) Correct #PTS in PTS1
6) Correct #PTS in PTS2
7) PTS1 Gap Differences
Example:
Player A: Drikke 7-5 (Gap=2)
Player B: Drikke 7-6 (Gap=1)
Result : Drikke 8-2 : Player A wins (closer to the gap)
8) PTS2 Gap Differences
9) Tournament CB
10) CB1, CB2 ,....
11) Steps 1-6 from the previous round
12) If still tied, player who entered for the game first will go to the next round.


This were the first tiebreak rules

Some other tricky questions: :devil:

will it be considered as cheating if we ask TT players to forward us their picks through PM so that we can have a better idea about who to pick ?

Will the deadline be the same as one of TT or can we wait a little bit more so that we are informed of the TT Diffs ?

Actually I think I will make the dealine about 30 minutes earlier so you can't ask the players for picks. Any suspicions of this will lead to automatic walkoveer and banned from the next week or two of this game.

Holy Moses trucul this is the one time I actually appreciate you dictating my game:) Everybody hear this!

SR= How many more matches the player picks correctly than his opponent.
PTS= The overall score of both players
