I think when discussing WC's we have to include SE's too, I've made my points as to why this is.

I'd volunteer to run a points-based system. A weekly update would not take long at all.

Default Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

Poll time (TT players only). Do you think WCs should be implemented? If yes, please specify which of the ideas (or combination of ideas) you would prefer:

I voted yes My answers are in red. and what I agree more are in red/bold

- WC for challenger champions - Agree

- WC points based system I think this is the best, discuss this best and decided everything. I think that I already said, but If you want I will like very much do this

- Grand Slam WC(s) - Challenger points (preceeding the GS)

- WC for defending champions - Can be if they can´t entry in the MD

- Managers choice - Only if more than two people ask and maybe they shoul do a text where explain why they shoul received a WC.

- WC for managers No! So everybody becomes manager ahahha

- Nationality - Yes and No :S It´s unfair for you don´t have tournaments in their countries ou don´t have very tournaments. But for example I don´t won a CH but I like very play in the MD of Estoril Open. (for example)

- Other

These are some of the points that should be considered:

- Which events should give WCs - ATP 250/500/1000 and GS
- Number of WCs per tournament 2
- Number of WCs per player 3
- Who should be eligible to get a WC - Everyone who are not in top 50. And don´t can get entry in the MD
- Benefits of a WC system x amount of additional work/complications it may cause - I think managers shoul decided this point, but it is by system, challengers champions, don´t give many work for the managers.

Default Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I voted no, there are a few WC systems which if forced to, I can tolerate, but in the end I don't think they're beneficial to TT. I think it gets complicated and I think it takes away main draw spots from people who have worked to rise up the rankings.

The only part that I would support without reservation is a WC for defending champions who for whatever reason cannot get direct entry.

I have followed this discussion about points based system, and I find those... tolerable.. but still not my preference.

Default Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I voted NO because it only adds more work for managers, it gives a higher chance of errors and problems but it doesn't really 'add' anything to the game.

In the case it was finally approved, I'd find fair anything but WC for given by managers, WC given to managers and WC by nationality.

I don't like the fact that players in the top 50 can enter any CH they want without a WC, I think they should need one to get in, just like in the ATP.

You are only talking about players ranked 31 to 50. The top 30 are barred except in particular circumstances. I would support extending this to the top 50, but it was discussed last year or the year before and voted against.

Well you are trying to play a CH and you are ranked around 10, though I suppose you call DC a special circumstance, but in the ATP the players who don't play DC are still not allowed to play CH's without a WC.

I voted yes, but I must specify that nly for this choice:
WC for SOME challenger champions.
Otherwise it would get way too complicated.

I really do like the idea of WCs. I have been saying that for a couple of years. But i do agree with everybody, that it is really tough to implement it. But for sure, i like that we try to keep the game as close to the real game as possible. That is why i would suggest some sort of wildcards.

By just saying that every tournament has one wildcard and the manager can decide who will get it. But no player can get more than 3 wcs a year. If a manager doesn't give out a wildcard, he isn't forced to, but he can.

In this way, managers get more priviliges. That is nice, as managers get rarer.

I voted no

but I would be cool with defending champions getting a WC. That's the only one I could accept. The points based system for WC is essentially just a different ranking.
