Season 5 Check-in/Surface Change/Feedback & Comments/Awards

Hello all ATCers All 10 of you

So we're heading into S5, and as I'm sure you've noticed, the number of participants has dwindled from around 30 to 17/18, I know there is a core group of committed players, thanks to you all but I'm hoping to recruit some more, so if you know anyone in another game, do tell them about us The other thing is, if you're going to play, I would like a little more involvement, it's just a bit disheartening to see Tier I/GS threads get 40 posts or so I don't mean writing articles, but just joining in the banter, I know it's hard if you're not doing as well as the top players, but there's always Misa there to put down

If you would like to return, post it in here, and of course you are also permitted to change your surface preferences slightly, i.e. moving one surface up or down, for example:

S4 -

Hard
Grass
Clay
Indoors
Plexi

S5 -

Hard
Clay +1
Grass -1
Indoors
Plexi

You can make more than one change if you want, but you can only move a surface up or down one space New season starts on Jan 19th , so starting signing up, and if you have any feedback/comments, please post them here too

Re: Season 5 Check-in/Surface Change/Feedback & Comments

Dani returns for S5 with the goal to finally win her first title.

Surface:
Hard
Indoors
Plexicushion (+1)
Grass (-1)
Clay

A quick suggestion though Well I don't know if it is just me () bur I noticed that results weren't as consistent(I mean schedule-wise) as they were in previous seasons... I'm sure you didn't post because you were busy but I'd appreciate that if you weren't able to calculate/post results for the day, if you just post in the thread that you won't. Because sometimes I'll come to TF and refresh constantly to see if their were results and sometimes you wouldn't post. Other than that, Dav I think that you are doing a great job with the game It is my favorite game concept wise with ATT.

And to get more players, maybe you could do an ad where many posters are holding the countries championships... I know that there are plenty of games whores who aren't playing this game (I'm a games whore too so I'm not putting them down )

Fair point, and you're right, especially during the HC season, the tournament threads were lasting weeks and I know that can contribute to people losing interest, I'll try to be more consistent this season and I might even recruit someone to help if things get busy, my work/study tends to be sporadic, so I can go from having no time to lots

Yeah I might do that re the games whores, thanks for the suggestions

Re: Season 5 Check-in/Surface Change/Feedback & Comments

I think we have a general lack of STAR POWER from the Top Players as well

I miss Dechy and Mauresmo Misa just posts saying she's about to lose, Molik just says wooooo and grrrr, Clijsters is a mute and Sharapova just rambles on with a complete lack of love for the Shift key and sentence structure.

Let's make a New Years Resolution to FIND PERSONALITIES, LADIES - the matches themselves are always good but it ends up being a bit WHO CARES with personalities like those - build rivalries!

And I vow to have a personality...and talk and write more, but I feel like I'm too nice to be very bitchy, which is what most of the interesting personalities bring.

I'm sorry but

Sharapova's coach is very good with english. He's probably just in a rush.

Though I agree with your point.

Re: Season 5 Check-in/Surface Change/Feedback & Comments

Hey, Dav...would it be okay if I started a Vaidisova diary in the game forum, or would you rather me just use the tournaments? Because, I'd really like to get more involved with writing a personal-life kind of thing.
