We have to decide the ranking system for suicide.
I think it should be the best 18 tournaments with no mandatory events.
I think we don't have to limit the rankings to 18 tournaments, or to 4GS + 9 TMS + the best 5 from the rest. The game of Suicide Tennis is very simple, everybody can play in every tournament and more than one players can win the tournament, more than 4 can reach the semifinals, so we just can add the points from every tourney and have a fresh start of the ranking @ the beginning of every year.

So,the final decision is?
I agree with yemok,i think that's a good idea.
But if his idea is not good for the rest,then I'm for ATP system.

I think someone needs to decide what's actually going on with the picks deadline thing :tape: I'm for keeping it how it is; I didn't like the idea at first but it seems to work. Not picking in time counts as forgetting which according to the rules is a perfectly good reason to die :p

In tournies I run i don't accept picks from people who send them after the first match is played, keeps it simple and saves my time/work.

Also i think the ranking system should stay as it is. You don't need rankings to get into tournies so its basically a like the ATP race with whoever performs best throughout the year gets the top spot with the tournies along the way.

I think we should put some type of restriction because if not the one who most plays is the one of best ranking.
I agree, I think 18 tournaments throughout the season can be a good option

4 GS, 9 Masters and the best 5 IS

but in case someone misses a GS or a Masters he can have other ISs added

The Atp Race restricts to 4 gs 9 ms plus 5 Is.
I think the best shouldn`t be the one who plays more, the one who plays better.

that's completely not true :)
the one with the best ranking is the player with the best performance, not with the most participations (look at the ranking ;) )
ATP has restrictions, but we are not ATP, in ATP it is impossible to play every week because of fatique, illness etc.
such reasons are not reasonable in this game
everybody can play every week and there is no draw-limit (as in the Tennis Tipping for example)
so I think it's not necessary to restrict the performance of everybody to 13 or 18 tournaments

If you are poor at the important tournaments (GS, TMS) it's impossible to recover with plenty of minor tournaments though...

I have a question :)

Why do we sign in? Is there any relevance? I mean you just anme a name for the day day so you're in. If you don't then obviously you're not playing.

I just don't see the point of signing in :p

SOme of the managers PM players who have said IN and have not picked a player before the start of first matches, I think Excaliber does and I planned toooooooooo but then I forgot haha. But I think its not a bad idea, it can go eitehr way for me really.

I personally prefer sign in on my torunies as it means i can set up the excel sheet I hold the names and picks so it can get updated every day or two without needing to add all the names and day 1 picks all in one day as it would take a lot longer and I might not have that much time.

1.What do you think about playing WTC?
2.What do you think about Davis Cup?
3.Masters Cup format?
4.Accepting picks until the start of each match and not at start of day play?
5.Making rankings restringed to 14+5 best others?
6.What do you think about playing qualies? If yes, run more than one tourney a week?
7.Do not give tournaments to the manager that commits first?



I have an answer for each one of these questions/suggestions. I want to hear yours please.

1.What do you think about playing WTC?
a, wtc doesnt give any atp points. its only about being patriot (and the money of course)
b, there's a normal tourney during that week anyway

2.What do you think about Davis Cup?
too many changes after the first day. i cant even imagine how this could work :confused:
lets not talk about dead rubber matches

3.Masters Cup format?
same as pts. one for the first 8 in race, an other one for everyone else (different points). everybody can pick the same player twice.

4.Accepting picks until the start of each match and not at start of day play?
:cool:

5.Making rankings restringed to 14+5 best others?
i like it, but this might be too much work for yemok

6.What do you think about playing qualies? If yes, run more than one tourney a week?
qualies? no. but i think seeded players might be allowed to skip day1 (just like at wtaworld)

7.Do not give tournaments to the manager that commits first?
i couldn't care less about this one


+1: different scores to people who are still alive on the last day, but
- already picked both of the finalist
- lost pick
- won pick (maximum points of course)
