Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

With 8 players, I'm thinking 1 bye per round (which becomes 2 because it's impossible to pair off 7 people). So there would be 3 matches each round and 2 players sitting out. To make room for all 28 matches required, we would therefore need 10 weeks to play a league with 8 teams.

We might have 2 league rounds during Grand Slams and other 2-week tournaments, as well.

I can see that the new teams would cause a problem...so maybe we should just have a league during each tournament? 1st and 2nd day is 1st match, 3rd and 4th day is 2nd match, QFs, SFs and F is the final match?

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

Watching some WAR picks, I see some just reverse his whole picks (without thinking of it at all)
I am thinking of limiting the WAR changes to lets say 33% of the number of matches (or 1 if less then 3 matches). Then you should really think where to change.

Opinions?

Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

As long as more people realise the correct tactics for WAR, that should even itself out. At some point it will be impossible to gain points from it.

Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

The question about the type of team race is still open.

Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

My 2 cents: It will be better if we have a league which determines a single winner.The league can also be split into 4 seasons like 4 slams

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

How would be to play in the league format. If we have 16 regular players and everyone with everyone plays one match (15 tournaments). For every win you get 3 points and for tie 1. Whoever is first on the list at the end of the season (after 15 tournaments) will win the title.

When we have two (or three) tournaments in a week we can pick matches for both tournaments.

In 2013 we would have 30 tournaments (without a Grand Slam) and that would be two seasons. At Grand Slams we can play in teams (in this or the previous format).

New players can play in second division. At the end of the season first 4 from second division go to first and last 4 from first division go to second.

If we somehow manage to organize this format of the game it might be interesting.

Bad side is that some of the players maybe will not be able to play tournaments every week.



So what about the following:
1. We keep the current format and there will be every week a singles and a team winner. No league.
2. We have weekly competition for teams only and implement a league for singles with division I. II. III. (8 players each). The last two are relegated and the first two go upwards.
3. We keep the current format and there will be every week a singles and a team winner. On the top the top of that we implement a singles league too, with division I. II. III. (8 players each). The last two are relegated and the first two go upwards.
4. Calculating with 24 players, we can have 8 teams (3each) and a league can be implemented for teams too.




There are still no decision on the team format:
1. Current discarding (autodiscard)
2. FEDCUP format



I need a honest answer:
1. Have you ever checked the rankings? Or which rankings are you interested? Should I manage all in the future? (Not a very big deal, half an hour a week, but I dont want to do it if it is not interesting)



Please react, I am lost a bit, and the game is for you.

Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

Hm. I think the game should not include games which already exist.
I like the fact that there are 5 disciplines, especially war and sequence are very nice.

IMO the game makes only sense with OOP of at least 5-7 matches,
so the ITF last week was not good to play this game and small tournament aren't in general.
Because there are not so many players, I think it's enough to play the biggest tournaments. Grand Slams, Premier 5 and Premier mandatory. A few premier as well. And YEC and Sofia. It's enough.

IMO no team league or something, only singles.
The ranking then are interesting.
It does not make sense to play a team competition when everybody just picks his own picks.

2.

I think it should stay current game format (team competition with autodiscard) plus (if it is possible) insert the league with division I. II. III.

Honestly, I looked at the list once or twice (at the start of the game). I do not know, there are too many lists and position on the list is not important, better ranking brings you nothing and does not take away anything from you.
