BACK FOR 2010 SOON?... (Some improvements and changes to the game).

All of the following is subject to Interest being shown in the Game

A week to raise intrest/promote the game, before tournaments start 22nd Febuary.


Main Changes

1. Matches are now 3 sets, rather than 5 and therefore only 3 pictures will be used.

2. If possible 2 tournaments will run some weeks.

3. Commitments broken up monthly, maximum of 32 tournaments to be played (including Slams).

4. Players start with 400 points at Beginning of year, points lost/gained through player activity. (SUBJECT TO TRIAL)

5. A new database for me to keep all the data, saving time.

Introduction of Points Scheme

Players start with 400 sending points at beginning of season.

Sending points may be reduced or increased depending on player activity.

+10(Winning a Grade A Event)
+7 (Winning a Grade 1 Event)
+3 (Winning a Grade 2 Event)
+2 (Taking a week break, no tournament)

-1 (Travelling within a country, (Memphis to New York).
-2 (Travelling within a continent, (Spain to Sweden).
-3 (Travelling from Europe to The Americas, and Americas to Europe)
-3 (Travelling from Europe to Africa, Africa to Europe)
-3 (Travelling from Asia to Australasia, Australasia to Asia)
-4 (Travelling from Africa to Americas, Americas to Africa)
-4 (Travelling from Africa to Asia, and Asia to Africa)
-5 (Travelling from Europe to Asia, and Asia to Europe)
-6 (Travelling from Africa to Australasia, and Australasia to Africa)
-6 (Travelling from Europe to Australasia, and Australasia to Europe)
-6 (Travelling from Americas to Australasia, and Australasia to Americas)
-6 (Travelling from Americas to Asia, and Asia to Americas)

Players Home is the Nation they represent, (Caroline Wozniacki - Denmark)

[2] Point Rules
[3] Point Scheme
[4] How it Works
[5] Match Example

[1] The Simple Bit
* Every match has three sets.
* Points [See Below] to spread over 3 sets.
* 3 pictures/questions to answer.
* Answers and points used for every round.

[2] Point Rules
* Players start with 400 sending points at beginning of season.
* Sending points may be reduced or increased depending on player activity.
* After choosing the tournaments you want to play for the upcoming month, I will work out the amount of points they have to send.

[3] Points Scheme
+10(Winning a Grade A Event)
+7 (Winning a Grade 1 Event)
+3 (Winning a Grade 2 Event)
+2 (Taking a week break, no tournament)
+1 (Moving up in the rankings)

-1 (Travelling within a country, (Memphis to New York).
-2 (Travelling within a continent, (Spain to Sweden).
-3 (Travelling from Europe to The Americas, and Americas to Europe)
-3 (Travelling from Europe to Africa, Africa to Europe)
-3 (Travelling from Asia to Australasia, Australasia to Asia)

-6 (Travelling from Europe to Australasia, and Australasia to Europe)
-6 (Travelling from Americas to Australasia, and Australasia to Americas)
-6 (Travelling from Americas to Asia, and Asia to Americas)

Players Home is the Nation they represent, (Caroline Wozniacki - Denmark)

[4] How it Works
* At every tournament there will be a set of 3 questions.
* You send me the answers to the questions.
* You also spread points over the three sets.
* If you get the question correct and your opponent does not, you win the set 6-0
* If you and your opponent both get the questions correct or both get the question incorrect, whoever has the most points placed on the question win the set.

[5] Example of Questions



Example Of Match
* Player A has 300 points

Player B has 310 points

Player A
1- (120 Points) (Answer- Maria Sharapova)
2- (100 Points) (Answer- Serena Williams)
3- (80 Points) (Answer- Stuttgart)

Player B
1- (140 Points) (Answer- Caroline Wozniacki)
2- (90 Points) (Answer- Serena Williams)
3- (80 Points) (Answer- Linz)

So Who Wins?
1- Winner: Player B, Caroline Wozniacki was the correct answer, Maria Sharapova was incorrect.
2- Winner: Player A, Serena Williams was correct (both players were correct), player A wins as he/she had more points on this set.
3- Winner: Player A, Stuttgart was the correct answer, Linz was inncorrect.

Player A Wins: 2-1

I'll replay, the new rules are interesting though.
I like the 3 set idea.
Quick question, how many weeks will there be?

I've put together a basic schedule at the moment, that totals 44 weeks.

Amount of interest will affect the schedule and tournament calender.

Oh, so we'd then not have to play some weeks. And then does YEC count for the 26?

I'll be Dokic again.
