Welcome to Fill-In-The-Draw 2011
Eurasian Autumn Circuit
Tournament (3/7) - Shanghai​


Here's what you need to know:

1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week.

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) Every player can replace his/her draw only once per tournament whatever the reason of replacement.
If you are changing picks, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win, or you may say "Qualifier 2" which means that you predict the other qualifier to win.
If you didn't determine Qualifier 1 or 2, your pick will not be counted.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.

8) The tiebreak rule is to go by how many correct picks the players had in each round, (for example)
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after counting each round, they will remain tied.

9) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round. DO NOT have 'Player A d. Player B' as it will make the manager's job much easier
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the games section

Re: FITD Shanghai - Draw Posted very soon

The FITD Board and Thunderfish
Welcome You to the
EURASIAN AUTUMN CIRCUIT

What Is It???

This is a series that will work similarly to the U.S. Open Olympus Bonus Series. The only difference is that it is at the end of the season. I am running one tournament every week from now until the World Tour Finals and each of those tournaments will be part of the series. Your scores for each of the seven tournaments will be added up for your final series score. There are seven tournaments so the top 7 players will get bonus ranking points at the end of the series.

What Tournaments are Included In the Series???

There are seven tournaments, one every week starting with Bangkok and ending with Paris. The Tournaments Are:
Bangkok
Tokyo
Shanghai
Moscow
Vienna
Valencia
and Paris

What are the rules???

This is a fairly simples plan. I (Thunderfish) will be the manager of all seven tournaments. If you ever forget which tournament of the week is part of the series, just look for the one that I am managing. There are only a couple of rules:
1. You all have busy lives. I get it. You will not be eliminated from the series if you miss one tournament. You will simply receive no points for that tournament.
2. I will release a series leaderboard update at the end of every tournament. Please do not constantly ask about the total standings. There is no spreadsheet for this kind of leaderboard so I will have to format it myself to work. Do not worry. I am not a lazy leader, but when you put pressure on me, I am more likely to make small mistakes.
3. Please for the love of god, read the post on how to make your picks.
4. The FITD board has approved these rules and the series as a whole, so no skepticism please. I have gotten permission to do this.

Prizes (Obviously the most important part)...

All prizes are in the form of ranking points. Prizes are as follows:
1st - 500 points
2nd - 300 points
3rd - 250 points
4th - 200 points
5th - 150 points
6th - 100 points
7th - 50 points

What is each tournament worth for the series??

The FITD board and I are still under the process of deciding on the best scoring plan. You can see the Bangkok Thread for the list of scoring options. I will still list the maximum points that can be earned in each tournament with each scoring option.

Option A:
Bangkok - 250
Tokyo - 500
Shanghai - 1000
Moscow - 250
Vienna - 250
Valencia - 500
Paris - 1000

Option B:
Bangkok - 840
Tokyo - 1880
Shanghai - 4120
Moscow - 840
Vienna - 840
Valencia - 1880
Paris - 3760

Option D:
Bangkok - 100%
Tokyo - 100%
Shanghai - 100%
Moscow - 100%
Vienna - 100%
Valencia - 100%
Paris - 100%

Thanks d_s for helping make this happen! :wavey:

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Enjoy the series. Hopefully, if all goes well, we can do something like this again in the future.

Re: FITD Shanghai - Draw Posted very soon

How to Send Picks​

I only have a couple of requests. It's not the end of the world if you don't follow them, but my life will be made a whole lot easier especially because I have to deal with the "surprise" as well. Updates will be quicker (especially the first few) if you follow these requests.

1. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Please make sure before submitting your picks that there are no spaces after each name.
Nadal
Federer
Djokovic
Tsonga
Looks the same as:
Nadal
Federer
Djokovic
Tsonga
except the second entry has spaces after every name. If you are careless and leave these spaces, I will have to manually delete them.

2. Other managers make a bigger deal over this than I will but please do not put spaces between rounds. I honestly don't give a crap if I have to cut and paste separately but, again, easier formatting means quicker updates. Your choice.

3. The one thing that I cannot stand is misspelling. Just refer to the posted draw in order to get correct spellings. These are the hardest mistakes for me to root out and if you do not recieve points because of misspelling, it is your job to notify me because this mistake is on you, not me.

Just to add on to the misspelling stuff, in the Bangkok thread, three picks mysteriously disappeared because of the most subtle misspellings. Basically, excel was being a little prick.
My point is that Haase looks almost identical to Hasse, Monfils looks the same as Momfils or Monfls. When I look at the statistics screen and see missing picks in three different rounds, I go and waste about 2 hours searching through your picks for the freakin error, and I just cannot find the really subtle ones. So please, just proofread your picks before submitting them.
