[GMT] Suggestions, Questions & Complaints

Suggestions, Questions & Complaints

Here you can post all your suggestions on how to improve the game and/or any complaints or questions you might have.

Please read the rules thread (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthrea...0#post14515150) before posting suggestions or complaints.

If you have any complaints (i.e. voting irregularities, graphics that should be discounted) regarding a certain match, you should inform the tournament manager by PM. In case the complaint is about the manager please contact the board (Droolv., Sean or Yana).

Re: [GMT] Suggestions, Questions & Complaints

Exhibitions



This is not so much of a suggestion but an announcement open to discussion and feedback. Following discussion the board has decided that it would benefit the game to have different types of tournament to mix things up a bit. So far we only have Fed Cup and to a lesser extent YEC which don't follow the conventional style of tournaments and following the success of the duels thread we have decided to start doing exhibitions, which would not go toward rankings but would all be different and would challenge makers in different ways and hopefully improve peoples skill. This could mean that there may be 1 exo and one tournament going on at a time. We don't want to start then if only 3/4 people will play so we would like to know what you think about it



Ideas we have come up with so far are:

Extreme Graphic Exo - Graphics makers are given tasks as usual, but instead of the usual simple colouring effects and so on, they are challenged on how creative they can be on their graphics. Voters will vote on which maker has been most successful with using extreme effects (blurs, brushes, animation etc...) and being creative.

Three way tie Exo - what is says on the packet really. Instead of have a 1 vs. 1 match there would be three people in the match. Whether the voters vote for their least favourite graphic (to eliminate) or their favourite (to carry through) is as of yet undecided and open to input.

Cosmetic Surgery Exo - inspired by the success of Poiree's thread in which she photoshoped players to add make-up and so on we thought this would be a good idea for an exo as it challenges players in different ways. For those who are new to Photoshop Iím sure the girls wouldn't mind giving out a few tips to start of with.

Banner Exo - instead of the same old avatar, banner, free style this exo would be only banners in the 3 sets. We could of course do only pic reconstruction, wallpaper and free exos too but you get the idea. We felt this would be good as some makers really excel at banners when their avis and frees are less good.

Elimination Exo - Players identity would be kept secret in this exo. there will only be one set of tasks for the entire tournament. At the start the makers make their graphics, the winner then advances to the next round as usual. But instead of making a new set of graphics they use the same ones again.

*Please tell us what you think about this and whether you would compete. And we would be very grateful if you had any other ideas. At the end of the day it 's all in the name of fun and wouldn't be too competative*
