how naive u r..
if thats the case i will hope to face opponents in the 1st round who play in PTS too

so i can see their TB scores and then modify here and there so as to win on TB end of day

really pointless talking to a retard as i said earlier

I usually use the same scores when I play PTS as in here, I don't think it's so naive to think that others do too.

Again, why do you have to try to get offensive just because we disagree.

Why is it better to lose on predicting the set ratios then predicting the scores and set ratios (PTS combines the both)?

And you don't have to calculate all the TB's, maybe once in something like 1000 matches...

i guess somebody mus set up a new game called SET RATIOS for people who simply loves it..

if last season SET RATIOS was avaliable, there will be people now arguing for PTS tiebreakers for this round..

thats how people are..

I just thought it was a new idea because set ratio is at least more closely related to tipping than score predictions. Often in vBetting here we can do set betting, and I think it's easier than scores. A lot of people get confused with PTS scores and don't know how to score them. I just think that the two games should be seperate games as much as possible. PTS had a poll to see if we wanted to start using knockout format for PTS... we decided against it, but how similar would the games have been then?

In the first round using set ratios would eliminate the need for FIVE tiebreaks, would lessen the importance of PTS and would use 1 or 2 TBs as a last case scenario and in the first round only.
Don't mix the countbacks into this discussion, it's a different matter as first round can't have CB's.

Sorry I'm used to being allowed to express my opinion when those in power do something I disagree with. I never had my say on 5 TBs. Many people seemed to agree with me that CB should be used ahead of TB at least. You expressed that you agreed with the decision, I am allowed the equal right of expressing that I disagree. Free speech and all that.

I know, I was trying to explain what set ratios could solve as an alternative to PTS being important in EVERY round. As I said if set ratio was used in the first round also ahead of FIVE tbs, maybe it would only be necessary for 2 or 3 in the first round and for 0 in every other round.
