Whoever is interested in playing the 2008 edition of PAW Davis Cup, post your commitment here. Don't forget to post also the country you are playing for.

The rules are as of following:

1. Each country needs at least 2 players and at most 4 players to form a team.

2. If there are more than 4 commited players from a given country,
the four best ranked players (as of January 28) will be part of the team.

3. Deadline for commitment is 2:00pm CET of Wednesday February 6.

4. If there are less than 16 countries commited by the deadline,
more commitments will be accepted within a 24-hour period,
but the teams that commit after the deadline will be accepted by order of commitment and not by ranking.

5. The first round will be played in a league format, with the best 8 teams qualifying to the Quarterfinals.
If there are 16 teams or less, the first round will be played with a draw.

6. The thread will be in the Davis Cup 2008 forum.

guys, if you're the only one for your county, play with someone who has the same. Otherwise some will be still alone when the deadline is passed, and then you won't play.

you can be in for Uzbekistan or Korea, but if there doesn't come someone else, you can't play as you are alone for that country. So, shall I put you in for Russia? :wavey:

I think you should start thread in "Davis Cup" category with a link to this place, maybe few more people will join the game
but quite possible that everybody who wanted to play, has alredy commited
good luck with managing :wavey:

Tomorrow after deadline I will make the draw (by random.com) if there are still 16 teams or less. :)
So how it is now, Poland and Kazachstan would have a bye in 1st round.

I think League Mode was far the best option. That's how PAW use to work :S

I'm doing the same as how it was done last year
there were only more as 16 teams last year, so they needed a League.

there were only more as 16 teams last year, so they needed a League.

I think it's would be better to take the 8 best teams out of the 14 as it was done last year.
The first round is the best since there are many matches...
BTW, do you know what will be the schedule ?
On december it sucks because there are only 5 matches....

What about that :
February (1st round world group) : the best 8 teams go through.
11th-13th April (1/4 World group + Group 1, 2nd round) : The best 4 teams qualified for the final.
19th-21st September (World group 1/2 + Playoff) : "Final Four".

In this way, each round will have a lot of matches.

hallso
02-06-2008, 07:32 PM
about schedule we can discuss later, but I also think that league table and best 8 further is better solution, I don't want to have "bye", I'd like to play now ;)

TankingTheSet
02-06-2008, 08:00 PM
Just a clarification, I assume that the average score is always calculated over 16 picks, that is if someone posts just PAW1 with 16 points and no other picks, his/her average will be one point?

no, the sum of all picks from every player will be counted, like usual in the PAW game

average of players totals will be used to count countries results

For a League table, I will discuss that with robus :)

PAW has never put the players higher in ranking in a privileged position (just like TT does - but that's a different story), here everyone has equal chances in every tournament, and never gets a "promotion" just because he/she has won something.
And, that we are playing PAW here, I'm in favour of League Mode of course.
