This doesnt really affect the game itself, but I think we should have a hall of fame to honour some of the people who dont play much or at all anymore that did a lot for the game like yemok, superhoops and tangerine_dream to name a few.

Hi Snowwy. I would like to suggest to enable the possibility of picking first days, even if there are only 2 or 3 matches scheduled. In WTAWORLD the suicide game works like this, and adds lots of interrest ( and mass suicides ) because of it.

Snowwy

Im not sure about this, I like it other than the fact that tournaments start on a Sunday. I find that many people forget that some weeks it starts on Sunday and that starting Monday works better..we could have a poll though about this.

I would like to have DavisCup.

I would also like to have exact positions in the tournament and not only being eliminated on day5, or day 6, or whatever.


What about qualies?

Summary of Suggestions

Im just summerizing what people have suggested.

Hall of Fame - To honour the great players who dont play anymore
Sunday Start - Start Sunday, this leads to more excitement as there are only two or three matches and mass suicides.
Davis Cup - Not sure how this would work
Exact Positions - Not sure how this would work again unless you'd have a lot of ties.
Qualifying - Not sure how this would work


More suggestions would be nice or clarification of a couple of the current ones :)

Not everybody, but could be a lot, depending of course on the picks and surprises in scoreline.

I know this gets mentioned every year, but I'd like to see it possible to be able to pick matches later in the day if you miss getting a pick in before the day's play starts.

I think it's fair enough because there are ALWAYS people around to say whether a selection is late or not (just like PAW when people are always told if selections are late)

Back in Suicide's early days people were allowed the occasional instance of this. It's just that occasionally I don't get home from work in time to make a selection before play starts depending on what tournament is selected for this game. (In TT I try to make sure I commit to an appropriately timed tournament but in this game I have no choice which one will be used)

What about qualies?


Davis Cup - maybe people should form national teams. Davis Cup is usually played on 3 days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Every player in the national team make their picks. The total amount of points made by the team is divided by the number of team. Each "group" of Davis Cup has their following pontuation for the the day of winning pick ex:
World Group -
Day 1: 10
Day 2: 20
Day 3: 30

Zonal Group 1 - 1st round (ex: Europe Group 1, Americas Group 1 and Asia/Oceania Group 1) -
Day 1: 6
Day 2: 12
Day 3: 20

Zonal Group 1 - 2nd round
Day 1: 3
Day 2: 6
Day 3: 10

World Group Play-Offs
Day 1: 1
Day 2: 3
Day 3: 5

A right pick in Day 1, for example, would give 5pts, a right pick on day 2 would give 10 and a right pick on day 3 would give 20 points.4

Example for 2008 season:
Feb 8 to Feb 10 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - First Round - players made their picks on World Group 1st Round matches, Europe Group 1 1st round matches, Americas Group 1 1st round matches, Asia/Oceania Group 1 1st round matches. Total amount of points made by the team is divided by the number of players of the team. The team with the highest score (total points/number players) in each tie goes to the Quarter Finals
Max points made in World Group: 240
Max points made in Zonal Group 1: 160

Apr 11 to Apr 13 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - Quarter Finals - same thing as first round but picks are made on 2nd round matches of each zonal group and on quarterfinals matches of World Group. New points system is used for Zonal Group 1, as, if we use the same, the zonal group matches would "mean" more than world group matches
Max points made in World Group: 120
Max points made in Zonal Group 1: 80

Sep 19 to Sep 21 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - Semi Finals - same thing as first and second round but picks are made based on Davis Cup World Group Semi Final matches and Davis Cup World Group Play-offs matches.
Max Points made in World Group: 60
Max Points made in World Group play-offs: 40

Nov 21 to Nov 23 - Suicide Tennis! Davis Cup - Final - points are only based on picks made in Davis Cup World Group Final.
Max points made in World Group: 30

What about qualies?

Exact position - impossible, unless we change the system we use to give points
Qualies - only if we set a number of players that can commit to a torney. Or with we only pick in the last round of qualyfing but again, we would have to used a different point system than ATP like:
International Series (175 points to the winners)
Winning pick on Qualyfing Day: 5
Winning Pick on Day 1: 10
Winning Pick on Day 2: 15
Winning Pick on Day 3: 25
Winning Pick on Day 4: 40
Winning Pick on Day 5: 75
Winning Pick on Day 6: 120
Winning Pick on Day 7: 175

I feel

that there is no point in having suicide qualifying, even if there are alot of people playing in future..

point is that, qualifying mostly takes place on sat and sun, and basically , we can say that this will just be a 2 day tournament ( do or die mentality ) for those involved in qualies.

So if some big shot ( like tursonov wanting to play qualies to get used to court ) decides to play qualies, i'm sure all, if not most, will pick him, and imagine he loses. there will be no qualifiers :lol:

suicide is unlike tt, where there will surely be a winner , cause its a head to head comparision, so unless we change e system ( like sending picks to managers ) , i find it hard to implement qualies.

not to forget that, there are not alot of pple :wavey:

Peta Pan
12-07-2007, 04:50 AM
Yep qualifying in suicide is pointless. There aren't enough players to worry about it and I think this game is better with more players anyway :shrug:

Summary of Suggestions

Sunday Start

Sunday start makes game more excitings (only 2 or 3 matches to pick from)

Cons:
Mass suicides on Sunday
People forget to send picks for Sunday

Davis Cup - Explained http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=6320652&postcount=13

No limit for number of players by countries because final score will be generated by the division of the total amount of points made by the team divided by the number players so all countries will have the same condition to win, even the country is made by only 1 player.
We still can set a limit of players by country just in matters of realism.

I mean, in Doha week I post it, ok?
I think the max of 4 per team is pretty good, a lot of players in a team could disconfigure the whole concept in a Davis Cup team.
We can set up like reserve players (in case somebody in the team does not post). Reserve players would exist only in team with high popularity (like Argentina, USA, etc).
We would still do that division I said because there will be no way we will get 16 teams with 4 players so, only teams with 2 players to 4 players would be allowed.

It's better to have 16 teams, even with the fact that some of the teams have 1 player, than have less than 16 teams.
It is a suggestion thread and rules are not closed until the moment I open the thread for teams to join the Davis Cup.
That's why I asked with someone had something else to add or modify.

But at the same time, Felipe or I could open a DC teams thread where we can have team recruting, personally, I dont care if someone from Singapore plays for someone else cuz the wont have a team otherwise, Id rather try to keep it to teams of four, but like in TT, where Jess isnt from Serbia but plays for Serbia, thats completely fine with me.

That's fine for me also. I mean, it'd be nicer to play for your real country but if they have no space for more players. Teams with only 1 players are unreal. I mean, I could stand it but it'd look unreal. Real Davis Cup teams only play with 2 players or more.

We could set up the thread by now and then have a period for the top 16 teams (with you idea based on rankings positions) to commit and recruit their players. The highest players from each country would be the leader unless they do not want to. Countries with less than 2 players would have this period to convince players from "populated" countries like USA, Argentina, etc to join them. Then, after this period, if all the slots are not ocupated, then commitments for rest of the countries would be free. The countries that do not make into the draw would play World Group Qualifying Round in September.
The slots for the countries that join World Group not by "ranking" way would be given based on their rankings

And as team leade (16 contries qualified for WG), they can choose another country to play to and this country will be part of WG.

12-14-2007, 03:32 PM
And if the captain of the country (the top 16) does not want to play DC, then the country lose his position as WG direct qualified country and an alternate country will be called.
By final ranking of 2007, there is only one country repeated in the top 16 (= by now, the countries qualifies for DC) that's Germany.

The season has begun and suggestions weren't confirmed...

I suggested the idea of being able to pick as long as the match hasn't started if you weren't able to pick before play for the day started, but although many people agreed with me it has never been confirmed as a rule anywhere.

Today people have done that at Doha so can it please be confirmed so everyone is sure ;)
Also will it apply all the time? Or will there be a limit to how often you can do it? (I know there used to be a limit when it was done that way before - I don't care either way)

FilipeMB
12-31-2007, 02:07 PM
It is a wonderful idea and I'm in favor of it but I can't confirm it and use it just because I agree with it. Other board members have to agree with it too.

if people are allowed to pick after the first match has started we need to post when matches start imho.

if people are allowed to pick after the first match has started we need to post when matches start imho.

I could do this for tournaments in Europe but not Australia.

I wouldn't have thought it would matter so much that it needs to be posted every time a match starts... just periodically checking by anyone to the thread to make sure no one is picking for a match that has started. Just like in PAW.. NO one is able to get away with it there because if someone picks a match that's already started someone always is there to tell them that it's invalid.

As I said though some people have done it in Doha today so it could be a bit of an issue for the manager there to work out what happens with that since the rule hasn't been confirmed.

Labamba, Sheva and I love psy music sent picks after matches started but they were qualyfing matches, therefore, I considered their picks.
mashamaniac sent picks after first round matches began but, if this new rule was confirmed, i'd have accepted his pick. But as I said, I'm not sure about this rule, even though I think this rule will be confirmed.
For Doha, this rule will not be applied. Discussion may be valid for this to start in Auckland or Australian Open.

I am actually against the idea, but if there are enough people who are in favour, I wouldn't be worried too much if such an idea was implemented...

As far as I know, it was just mashamaniac. :)

I mean, it is extra work but it is a nice thing and correct thing to add. There's no why to not have it, IMHO.

this is completely random, but: I think there should be some specific way of organizing the entry list for a tournament - preferably by ranking, but on WTAW it sometimes takes forever to get one up since the manager is too busy. Thoughts?

I mean, we have players list where we put the players still alive and the players already eliminated. Only if we post the entry list in the first post. I support this idea, it would be also interesing but just as a aesthetic plus.

It's just that the way it is, it's hard to find a name on the list right at the start when there are a lot of people. It's probably just me and my stupidity but I'm never going to remember who I've picked so I have to find it there :o Alphabetical order would really work just as well, though

We can if that's suitable but a quick Ctrl+F (either in Firefox or IE) you can find your name in first post ;)

And yes, players will have to defend points this year. Actually, you will have to defend nothing because you made no points in Chennai in 2007. :p

Filippo told me to post here.

Suggestions for 2010 :

The creation of a hall of fame with
grand slam winners
title countdown
tournament winners
opponents in the final
nationality
davis cup teams

I can manage that, but I need the info. :hatoff:
