About Challengers Challenge

Challengers Challenge is the MTF game made especially for those members who like following ATP Challengers during the whole season. If you're one of them (or just wanna be one :p), try this game! The first installment which started in the summer of 2007 was a success, and 2008 was a succesful full season.

How to play

The game is very simple. It's a game of predicting champions, finalists and semi-finalists of challengers tournaments. As soon as the main draw of each tournament is out, each player will predict the champion, runner-up, and semi-finalists of each half of the draw.

SCORING SYSTEM

Champion correct: 200 points
Finalist correct: 150 points
Semi-finalist correct: 100 points

The scoring points will be acumulative. So, if you get the four semi-finalists right, the two finalists right and also the correct champion, you'll get 900 points. But if you do this, :worship: and you'll receive 100 additional points for a total of 1000 points!

BACK-UP PICK - In each tournament of the week, players are allowed to make a back-up pick. If one of the predicted players for the SF, F and Champion withdraws and not entered into the main draw, the back-up is used. IF NONE OF THE PREDICTED PLAYERS WITHDRAW, THE BACK-UP IS NOT USED AND YOU DON'T EARN ANY POINTS FOR IT!

Here's an example on how to predict:

Prostejov
SF: Hernych, Gabashvili, Ramirez-Hidalgo, C. Rochus
F: Hernych, Ramirez-Hidalgo
W: Ramirez-Hidalgo
BU: Greul

If you consider that the matches between taro Daniel & obry was important I am late. After I think it is not really important to be late for 30 min in this game( in which the importance is on Sf/f) If you want to reduce the number of participants you can. But I would have found it stupid!

would it help you if we laid out our picks differently.

Would they be easier to copy and paste any other way???

Ok you're right Diego. I can't tell anything against your decision.
I just make the differences between the formal rules & the game spirit! It is my view of the management.
Anyway, I don't want to be involved in controversy.
C'ya! :)

It's just an exchange of opinions friend, and your opinion is valid. When the season ends I will open a thread to see what changes can be made and also want to THINK about changes to improve the beautiful game. Thank you for participating with their ideas.:)

we will present ideas and then decide what is the best way to do it.
I like to organize it and does not bother me how to type it.
Thank you.

Before what I said about Gulbis, I meant that he withdrew before R1 and so a LL got in, so that players backup should be in.

You of all people should know that the rules must be followed, as you are a TT manager and supposedly know how to follow rules.

You of all people should know that the rules must be followed, as you are a TT manager and supposedly know how to follow rules.

1) It is inappropriate to compare Challenger challenge with TT. The goal is not the same: one aims at picking the good winners on every matches/ the other aims at picking the good semi-finalists/finalists.

2) Rules are rules but don't forget J99 that the purpose of MTF in general is to encourage people to participate and not to discourage them. It is the same in Challenger challenge or in TT. You can have a certain tolerance in TT too.

3) I wish you good luck to win among 9 participants. I should be suppressed to the EL.

4) I don't want to be involved in the controversy. I thought that my constructive exchange with diego was enough, but you find good to answer too.

Bye:wavey:

I know they are different games, that's not really relevant.

Other points I agree with.
