Laszlo , can you explain me about the rule when both players score tie?

Apologies if this has been discussed already.

Be so happy that when others look at you , they become happy too

Re: Pentathlon #20 -- China Open -- You may send for Tuesday!

If team score is 2:2 then sum of individual scores decide if that is what you asked?

If you are asking come on lena vs Michael! , then it is 428,07 vs 427,59 (just rounding)

I don't think so. This is my 2nd Pentathlon, so I'm also a rookie.

Valac222, who is the Barbarians team captain?

Which team race you prefer, the new one (FEDCUPLIKE) or the old one with discarding?
Could you explain discarding? And is the FEDCUPLIKE race is what is currently played?

Thanks!

I think I still like the Fed Cup-like team race, but I'm starting to doubt whether I like the percentage calculation. I think SEQ and WAR have too much impact on the final result under this system.

Valac222, who is the Barbarians team captain?

Your team, you decide, joeh is the most experienced player.

Yes now it is FED CUP like now.

Discarding.: At the end of the tourney the only 3 players left in the team. The other (1 or 2) is discarded by the captain during the tournament.

Re: Pentathlon #20 -- China Open -- You may send for Tuesday!

This would be the score with the old system (after autodisccard). Newbies dont try to understand it.

I prefer the discarding game.
There you fight for your team, but also try to stay in the game individually, which adds another dimension to this game.

Re: Pentathlon #20 -- China Open -- Send for Wednesday!

By the way Laszlo,

Do the all around ranking take into account all games played, or just best 16 or so?
