Question:

We all know Shanghai is a pain in the ass because of it's Sunday start. I feel bad knowing that people who are doing well in the Eurasian Autumn Circuit will miss out because of the Sunday start. Would it be okay for them to give me their username on the ATP Draw Challenge Circuit and enter an identical draw to the one entered on the ATP website?????

like I posted on the thread, I missed one before and wasn't allowed to use my DCC draw then so I'd be against it

one more question:

I've been getting lots of flak about coolfish1103's pick. When he had two qualifiers playing in the third or second round, he picked the higher ranked qualifier. I am very confused because he IS making a definitive pick. Lu is the higher ranked qualifier in the hypothetical matchup so I put him in coolfish's draw. However, I'm being told that this is still not allowed. It is definitive, but is it valid?????

In my opinion it is invalid. The reason being that it is specific in the rules that when two qualifiers meet, you state either Q1 or Q2: with Q1 being the qualifier listed first and Q2 being the qualifier listed 2nd. coolfish was very creative in his pick, and I dont think he was trying to circumvent the rule intentionally, but if his pick is allowed, you are opening a can of worms.

Here's my next FITD:
Round 1
Lopez
Blake
Kamke
Raonic
Lu
Dimitrov
Devvarman
Wawrinka
Round 2
If Blake loses in first round, Then Lopez, otherwise Blake.
If Raonic loses in first round, then Kamke, otherwise Raonic
The highest rank player of the winners
Wawrinka
SF
The winner from the top quarter of the draw
Wawrinka
Final
The winner from top half of draw


All of these picks are definitive, but no manager would allow this, as it clearly stacks the favour my way. Same as picking highest ranked qualifier, it is stacking the picks to the favour of the person who picked this way. It is also unfair to EVERYONE else who picked according to the definitive rules.

I know you are trying to increase the fun, etc. But the decision to accept coolfish pick(s) should have been referred to the Board. You do a great job with managing, I'm not trying to pick on you. Just that the game has been running a number of years and any variance to the rules needs to be agreed upon by the Board. Also, if there are changes to be made to the rules, these generally get voted on during the off-season. That way each year, the whole season is standard and the same each week. The rules for all the games have been refined really well so there are little to no arguments on the results. If there is an argument, then it is obvious that something hasn't gone according to the rules, or something has been misinterpreted.

i hear ya jervis, i kinda regretted this more and more as the tournament dragged on, until he found himself secured in last place. then i felt a bit better

but you are absolutely right, i won't let this happen again, i just didn't really know what to do because although I've managed quite a few tournaments, id never seen somebody do this and it WAS definitive, but now that you're mentioning it, it WAS unfair to everybody else.

sorry if you guys felt at a disadvantage

I can take over in St. Petersburg.
(But I won't be able to edit the first posts of the thread, is there a simple solution for this? Or should I just post updates without editing?)

I will be putting a FITD thread for WTF sometime late on Wednesday.

Just letting all WTF entrants know so that there is no panic.
