players who start on Monday are now in a better position?! even more points with 2 correct picks?

I checked this on Friday if this starts on Saturday or on Monday and I saw a post that we don't need to pick, Suicide always starts on Monday.

Yeah I don`t agree with it either.

The only way it would make any sense whatsoever is if for everyone who didn't start until Monday they can't use the most popular picks on Saturday and Sunday which would be Muller and probably Roddick. That way they would be on even ground with those who are left with 2 players they can't use again.

Even then it wouldn't really be fair to those who lost on days 1 and 2 because they too could have not picked and played Monday, but instead they were on time and as a result get penalized by losing.

The only thing that would make sense to me is to totally scrap the first 2 days, but I also think that's not the smartest thing to do as those who have already lost might not come back assuming they're already out.

The decision was made to start Saturday, even though it was late, players were given until the last match started to pick(as long as they pick a match not started yet), that should have been enough. The decision was made, we should just live with it, I don't think it would be smart to change it like 2 days later

You can start an alternative tournament in Washington (just this one time) for them who didn't make any picks?

There are so many matches tomorrow, whe dont those who start Suicide on Monday pick 3 matches. Or 2 matches on Monday, 2 on Tuesday. Therefore everyone have the same amount of picks by Wednesday.

Just for those who don't know, you can only pick from New matches tomorrow as Bjorki said.

Those new matches are the round 2 matches that are on the OOP. All remaining matches from round 1 were the ones that were carried forward from today

Best option of them all

I checked this thread on friday evening aswell and i also saw the message 'Suicide don't start before monday'
But i was here on saturday to see what PAW picks i had made , and i noticed 2 pages for Suicide... So i was shocked that the game was started and i was a few minutes to late (well 80 % of the players was) and i was ready to make a comment about this , till i saw the message 'everyone can pick till the start of the match you prefer' (like wta forum) so i thought ok ... most of them will notice it on time.

But if you gonna accept players on day 3 who have the advantage on all the players who are on time, it's just wrong and not fair.
