JJ, we called this game LAST HERO on my russian tennis forum. But we have about 15 potential Heroes only..

Name change to the game

i would like to support @jervisjames 's suggestion on name change of the game.

'suicide' sounds not nice nor entertaining.
now i understand what it is, but before as a newcomer i could not understand what the game is about at first. so should be visitors.

2. Picking only 1 Quarterfinalist to win each tournament (even if they play QF's over 2 days). I think it doubles the difficulty of these tournaments and thus makes them unequal to other tournaments worth the same amount of points. I know there have been grumbles in the past about this during the year, so I think it might have a bit of support for and against.

Re: Suicide Tennis Suggestion/Discussion Thread

I've put @Hidalgo 's suggestion to a poll.

Also made one about the Sunday starts.

We'll advertise the polls when ST Paris begins, our most-participated event (most probably) left of the season. If anyone has other suggestion we can vote on let us know.

1. Usually 15-20 players vote We have about 80 players here in ST
2. Managers forget to do poll on time
3. Usually players vote for event with best field so no need in poll

Method: For example, for week 43 Basel/Vienna we can play 1 year Basel, and next year Vienna etc.

Finally I will have chances to play ST in Moscow I would not like to play Stockholm every year
This is actually a pretty good idea.

Re: Suicide Tennis Suggestion/Discussion Thread

I agree with Hidalgo's suggestion to rotate every year when there are multiple tournaments the same week worth the same amount of points.

My bad - I would've created one, but thought Basel was the only 500 next week

Working on it now

Re: Suicide Tennis Suggestion/Discussion Thread

We should break ties on the final day the way TF does it: incorrect pick beats no pick as the 1st tiebreaker. If still tied, the player whose picks lost fewer total games wins. Too many tournaments end in a tie and without a champion and that's not fair.
