PTS or Set Ratios as TB method?
 
Which Tiebreak method would you prefer to be used in TT?

In PTS you have to predict the exact scoreline of a given match. You know how PTS works as we have been using it all season. Your match will only go to PTS if you and your opponent both tip the same amount of winners in the round.

In Set Ratios you have to predict sets won only (E.G. 2-1, 2-0, 3-2, etc). You get one point for predicting each match correct in a round. Your match will only go to Set Ratios if you and your opponent both tip the same amount of winners in the round.

Please vote, this is the first part of a poll that will determine how the game will use TB's and CB's next year. The second part will be posted after this one is finished. This poll will be open for 10 days.

Luck is involved in both PTS and Set ratio but alot less luck and more tipping ablility is found with Set ratios therefore my vote goes for Set ratios's :)

Have to go with set ratio, definitely seems fairer than the PTS system we've been using

Here's the other side of the coin:

PTS is more fun and exciting system, it's not all up to luck as some people seem to believe and the TT players already know and master the system. :)

I concede it is more fun but don't forget we are not playing PTS. I would prefer to get away from the PTS element of the game. Just because it is fun does not make it right for TT :p

But it's pretty hard to a new player understand how PTS works :p
Set Ratio is better, in my opinion :)

Set ratios will not win and people do not see the simplicity and fairness in this as yet. If they go to WTAworld and quiz TT players there, they will see they have a fairer game than us:sad:

Doesn't every system that has been discussed have elements of luck in them?

As long as players don't lose cause of ranking as that needs to stop.

You're right there every system does have elements of luck :) But with Set ratios less luck is involved than with PTS therefore you are rewarded more for your tipping skills. That's all I'm saying ;)

I am not convinced.
