Here's what you need to know:

1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week (THIS RULE MAY CHANGE, BUT IT STANDS FOR NOW).

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) If a player withdraws after you have made your prediction, you MAY ONLY alter your pick if the withdrawing player was seeded. However, if the player who withdrew is not a seed, you may not replace.
Unless a seeded player withdraws, you are not allowed to change picks after the first post.
If you are changing picks due to the withdrawal of a seed, you must post your picks in a new post.

No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1 d. Qualifier 2" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.

8) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round. DO NOT have 'Player A d. Player B' as it will make the manager's job much easier
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the games section.

Very IMPORTANT

HOW TO SEND YOUR PREDICTIONS

NO SPACES BETWEEN ROUNDS OF A DRAW

JUST ONLY LAST NAMES!
Don't make spelling mistakes, do not send seed numbers, player nicknames, country names!

EXAMPLES
ROUND 1
Nadal (last name only) ... Just Nadal ! No need for anything else.
Bellucci (last name only) ... Just bellucci ! No need for anything else.
Player C (last name only)
ROUND 2
Player A (last name only)
Player B (last name only)
Player C (last name only)

Hi everyone :wavey:

Please note this is my first FITD managing experience - if I screw up, please remember this before posting any negative comments and please be patient! :p

I'll do my best to post an update following every round.

Good luck to everyone :)

4) If a player withdraws after you have made your prediction, you MAY ONLY alter your pick if the withdrawing player was seeded. However, if the player who withdrew is not a seed, you may not replace.
Unless a seeded player withdraws, you are not allowed to change picks after the first post.

Baghdatis wasn't seeded. So, there is no need to replace your draws.
So, born_on_clay & Spain07,
Your first draws only are valid unless a seed withdrew.

Simply, all Baghdatis picks will be automatically replaced with Haase.

Is there any sense behind this rule? Nobody changes his draw so often that it would be a problem for the manager and this way it's just unfair to everybody who handed in his prediction early. Imo it would be best if people can change their draw once or at least once in the event any player withdraws and not just a seed.

Otherwise I would be the first one to deserve replacing his draw, but I didn't.

buddyholly
11-02-2010, 03:32 AM
hazem is right for now.
I always thought the no-change rule was to avoid the manager a lot of extra work, if he made his spreadsheet before the first match was played.
But I must admit this does not make sense if people can change seeded players up until the first ball is hit..

So, what actually is the reason for allowing changes for seeded players but not for others? I can't think of one.

born_on_clay
11-02-2010, 10:19 AM
Baghdatis wasn't seeded. So, there is no need to replace your draws.
So, born_on_clay & Spain07,
Your first draws only are valid unless a seed withdrew.

Simply, all Baghdatis picks will be automatically replaced with Haase.

Ok, but can't I change my draw before the play has started ? Am I not allowed to change my mind irrespective of withdrawals? Just asking...

Honestly, it should be just like the Draw predictor on the ATP site. When you fill in your draw and someone pulls out, whoever you had losing the match, still is the pick losing the match, therefore, if you had someone winning the match, and they were to pull out, the person replacing this player would be your pick to win. It would really make it that much simpler.

No, you're wrong, the ATP draw predictor allows any changes up until they 'lock' the draw, which is normally just before play begins. Saying that, I know they locked it a bit early last time, but normally it is just before play starts.

So they allow any changes ....

Can we ask that this rule is up for change when the season is over :)

That's fine, i have no problem with locking the draw once play has started on day #1, but all i'm saying is that the player who replaces the pick you had made should remain your pick, that's all. People shouldn't be allowed to changed their picks after the tournament has begun, it's part of the fun, you need to anticipate which guys will sometimes pull out due to fatigue ;)

This is the FITD rule. Anyone who picked Melzer or Ljubicic now has the pick of the LL who replaced them.

that is the rule, but another rule states that you cannot change your draw if an unseeded player withdraws even if it is before play starts. In this case Baghdatis withdrew well before play started, and people wanted to change their draws(something you would be allowed to do in the ATP Draw Challenge but not here because of that rule.

Rule needs to be changed:wavey:

Alright my bad, I'm glad that's what the rule was. I thought it wasn't because last week after someone pulled out i didn't get the points for the player who replaced him, but i see now that is has been updated and i got the points. I think there's nothing wrong with not being able to change picks after the tournament has started, but you should be able to alter your picks before then.

The scenario for tomorrow - its Hyperren vs jcreback for the title!

If DJOKOVIC wins - Hyperren is the winner

If FEDERER wins - jcreback is the winner

Good Luck! :wavey:

I think you forgot TB rules :rolleyes:

Are you f******* kidding me? mmarto you of all people making sure to criticize a first time manager? Ridiculous how selective your memory is - remind me next time you get criticized as a manager to just roll my eyes at you rather than support you like I did last week...

For everyone else - I apologize if I screwed up as I didn't realize the system was necessary unless first place was impacted. I looked over coonster's Valencia thread and will post an update later tonight with tie-breakers for Basel as I believe the rules probably are (picks correct by each round).

FYI - I just checked the FITD "rules" thread and it doesnt have anything about the tie-breaker system. This may want to be added before next season to help new managers.

awesome job ibreak!

were tb rules ever made official? :scratch: i don't remember it ever being discussed or vouted upon. getting more early round matches should be the TB anyway since they are harder to predict than just predicting who will make the semis etc.

ibreak, nice job for your first time running FITD! :yeah:

Don't worry, I didn't notice the TB system the first time I ran it either, just found it by looking at another manager's final update, I'll email you my Valencia one in a few hours time, and I hope it helps :)

And cut ibreak some slack, first time manager, everyone stuffs it up, I know I did.

Thanks coonster. I used your sheet to do the tie break system here.

were tb rules ever made official? :scratch: i don't remember it ever being discussed or vouted upon. getting more early round matches should be the TB anyway since they are harder to predict than just predicting who will make the semis etc.

To Snoo Foo's point, I also went through the FITD Management and Rules Threads and couldn't find anything about the tie-break system besides one short post by Hazem. It might be worth posting something "official" there in the off season.

I enjoyed managing the tournament and if you guys are in a bind again I'd be glad to help :wavey:
