Default Fantasy Tennis Game 2014

Hey,


I have come up with the idea of having a game similar to Fantasy Tennis Manager the difference being that it will be run on MTF instead of an external website. There are also lots of different rules and ideas which hopefully will make this game more fun.

The idea is that each user will be able to sign and trade players to make their own squad of around 8 players and the managers must choose their 5 players to compete for each week (2 weeks for Slams) the points that their players make in each week divided by 50 will be the users score for the week. The scores will added every week of the year to contribute to the rankings system.

There will be transfer windows when users are allowed to trade players with other users or can sell one of their players to another user either by Credits or by the games cash system.

The cash system works by each new user gets given $15,000 and can use that money to trade with other users, or buy players off me for their market value (Which is based on their current amount of race points) or can also spend $2,500 to get a random member of the top 100 added to their squad (The higher ranked the player-the rarer the player).



Those are the basic rules of the game, i will go into more detail if enough people say they are interested in playing the game for next year. Any suggestions and improvements are welcome .

Thanks!

I'm a bit overrun with games at the moment, but I'll definitely give it a go. Sounds interesting. I do like the tranfer windows, since that makes this game have more player interaction, while normal fantasy tennis just doesn't feel like you're competing against others.

Try making a unique name for the game

So it's kind of like American Fantasy Football? I'll give it a try.

At first glance, it seems too time consuming, I think.

I agree, although it certainly has potential and could be very fun. I shall keep an eye on this game, although I probably won't be able to manage it at all.

An idea: We could earn a certain amount of money per tournament, depending on how well our players do (or a small percentage of what the players earn via prize money maybe? Might be a tough one for the manager though). We could use the money to strengthen our squads.

Another thing to think about are captains and vice-captains. The nominated captain would give x2 points or x1.5 points.

I seem to be bursting with ideas at the moment, so I'll leave it at that instead of over-flooding you. Great work on the game so far

You have some very good ideas, this one in particular is great. And the more ideas the better!

Default Re: Fantasy Tennis Game 2014

Okay mate, just one more thing: Once the trial is over you might need to sort out the buying and selling system. Currently we can buy and sell players for their market value, but this system can be abused and it doesn't promote players trading/buying/selling with each other.

For example right now, I could sell Nadal back to you for his market value (about 100,000 was it?) and use that money to buy a bunch of top 10 players- then sell them back and get Nadal again whenever I want. Instead, if the selling value were half (let's say 50,000 for Nadal) then I wouldn't be able to abuse the system and might think about selling to someone else who is interested in the player for a value between the Market price and the selling price, benefiting us both. Could even do some bidding wars with this sort of thing.

I agree with Sham Kay. I was thinking about the same: how to promote trade?
I think actually you can also put extra money or loose money considering the results of your player. Maybe if you don't have enough money, you will need to sell some players too.
Anyway, this game seems interesting.

Just a question: every week you can choose the team of 5 players considering the tournaments they are playing? - means if a player is not playing that week, you can select other players of your squad?
