PYT needs more players

Hi everyone!

PYT is a new game on this forum. The first tournament has already been played, but the game would like to grow. Therefore I need more new players. The rules may look complicated at first, but they really aren't. Just ask any player of the game. The only thing you have to do is divide your points over three rounds, in each round you have to give me three sets of 13 games.
For example you have 450 points:
QF: 150 + SF: 140 + F: 160 = 450

QF: 150
15 - 5 - 14 - 16 - 25 - 10 - 0 - 20 - 15 - 4 - 11 - 12 - 3 =150
5 - 10 - 25 - 14 - 9 - 24 - 10 - 11 - 3 - 5 - 10 - 24 - 0 = 150
10 - 5 - 14 - 5 - 21 - 20 - 11 - 24 - 12 - 18 - 0 - 10 - 0 = 150
SF: 140
15 - 0 - 5 ... = 140
10 - 0 - 14 ... = 140
1 - 5 ... = 140
F: 160
10 - 15 ... = 160
15 - 14 ... = 160
0 - 12 ... = 160

You can earn extra points. How to win these is explained in complicated rules. These extra rules make the game more REALISTIC. A good player has more chance to stay good than a bad one. So you don't have a change of number one every new tournament. But still you have enough opportunities to become a good player.
To make these complicated rules easier, I will give you your points, which you have to divide, at the beginning of each tournament. So the only thing you have to understand is how to divide your points.

I will give you all the rules under here. If you want you can read them. But please join! It's really fun.

__________________________________________________ _______________

PYT= plan your tournament

- Everyone plays under a fictive name. You can pick for example your own name, but not a name of an excisting player. However you also need to give me a name of an excisting player who will represent your face in articles. Don't forget to give your player a nationality.

- You have to divide 60 points over 4 surfaces: Hard, Clay, Grass and Carpet. These points are added with the basis of 450 points. For example: Hard: 20, Clay: 20, Grass: 10, Indoor: 10. On a hardcourt you get 470 points to divide.
These points you have to divide over 3 rounds: QF, SF & F. When you have for example 460 points to divide, the following scenario would be possible: QF: 150 - SF: 160 - F: 150. There is a minimum of 120 points each round and a maximum of 180 points each round.

- When the points are divided over the 3 rounds, you must divide your points 3 times in 13 matches. For example you have put in 150 points in this round.
10 – 10 – 20 – 15 – 10 – 5 – 20 – 25 – 10 – 5 – 20 – 0 – 0 = 150 points
1 – 6 – 10 – 25 – 15 – 18 – 4 – 16 – 40 – 0 – 15 – 0 – 0 = 150 points
15 – 4 – 21 – 10 – 11 – 1 – 25 – 1 – 19 – 15 – 2 – 26 – 0 – 0 = 150 points.

-When another player B has for example : 5 – 15 – 20 – 21 - … = 160 points
Your points: 10, player B: 5 -> 1 – 0 for you
Your points: 10, player B: 15 -> 1-1
Your points: 20, player B: 20 -> coint toss will decide

There are extra points for high ranked players:
Number 1 gets 30 points extra -> 480 points to divide over the 3 rounds.
Number 2 gets 25 points extra -> 475 points to divide over the 3 rounds.
Number 3 gets 20 points extra -> 470 points to divide.
Number 4 gets 15 points extra
Number 5 gets 10 points extra
Numbers 6 till 10 get 5 points extra.

- There are bonus points to earn.
Defeating number 1 gives you 15 extra points for the next tournament.
Defeating number 2 gives you 10 extra points for the next tournament.
Defeating number 3 gives you 5 extra points for the next tournament.
Win a final gives you 20 extra points for the next tournament
Win a grand slam gives you 30 extra points for the next tournament.

- For doubles points will just be added up.
In doubles the bonus points are the same but divided in 2. So if you win for example a grand slam in doubles, you earn 15 extra points instead of 30 extra points for your player. So these you can use also for single matches.

To make it easy I will give all the points you have to divide at the beginning of each tournament, so you don’t have to do the calculate your own.

- We will play fictive tournaments. So for example I can make up “Gold Games in Venice”

If the difference between the points in the 13th game is
20 pts or more - the set is 7-6 (0)
15-19 - the set is 7-6 (1)
10-14 - the set is 7-6 (2)
6-9 - the set is 7-6 (3)
3-5 - the set is 7-5 (4)
1-2 - the set is 7-6 (5)
If the points are the same, a coin toss will decide -> 7-6 (6)

If you want to join this game, please post in this thread
If you have any question, you can ask them here or via PM to me.
Have fun !

Don't forget to give your surface points.

I'll give it a shot. I've never played a points dividing game before so i might be really bad at it (WILL be really bad at it, but that's okay) so what do I do? I don't understand at all!!
