Ok, I have this idea!
How about awarding 10 bonus points for the comletely guessed score! You know, it happens so rare, when the player guesses exact same score, so I think it could be rewarded.

But those usually make the list of top scoring predictions and earn bonus points already don't they?

Anyone has any suggestions on the Top 3 Highest-Scoring Predictions? Think the points given are too many or too few? Think the system needs to be changed?

I think every single perfect score should bring +10 points

In a GS a perfect score would bring +50 points

Yes, but I think I'll accept any player since the game is not that popular.

Default Re: Predict-the-SCORE Suggestions Thread

Idea:
League table format for rounds prior to QF + knockout tournament from QF onwards for the Top 8.

Trial Runs:
TBA, but definitely after the USO

Rationale:
1. To make the game more exciting and competitive.
2. To lower the weightage of the first few rounds. A lot of tournaments tend to be decided by the early round scores.
3. Rest in between tournaments for players.
4. Everyone will have to settle replacements in the first few rounds.
5. Slightly less work for the admins.

Details:
1. Knockout tournament: Top 4 seeds and then randomly draw the other 4
Alternative: Randomly draw all 8

2. Predictions for knockout rounds sent through PM.

3. TB for league table round:
# of perfect picks, then (if tied) # of zeroes (the one with less zeroes wins, of course ), then (if still tied) average of common picks between players.
Alternatives: Scores from latest round, arrange individual prediction scores for each player in descending order and compare in the form of an ATP TB (eg. 32 vs 30: 32 > 30 so score is 1-0)

4. TB for knockout rounds: Scores from previous league table/knockout rounds (i.e. compare scores from previous round and if tied, go back one more round)

5. Ranking points:
Total 1st Round to QF scores to rank quarterfinalists
Total 1st Round to SF scores to rank semifinalists

I couldn't play PTS this week, so I wasn't following the thread too closely.

PTS is in serious decline and this week a tournament has not been played and no one seemed to notice . Swissmister1 hasnt posted on MTF since the US OPEN, (I hope he is ok) so Puschkin and I decided to post to see if the players are still interested in playing or should we just forget about PTS.

We are looking for suggestions about what you like about the game, what changes would you like and any insight on how to make this game alive and popular again.


The game also needs volunteers to keep the race and rankings updated regularly.

Looking forward to your comments and feedback

Of course i'm interested, i love PTS!

Yes, i noticed that no tournament was played this week. But i had lots of games to manage and i didn't want to post every week in the managers thread "who will open the thread bla bla bla", it's boring.

I think there's no secret to make the game popular, the only thing to do is inviting more players and keep the game organized. It's very cool and for sure there will be players always playing it

Who will run Madrid?
