Tennis Pentathlon #33 -- IW



This is a game where you pick during a whole tournament and cannot be out after having a bad day.

Despite the name the game is very simple. Game manager puts OOP every day.You only have to follow a few steps.

Step 1. Pick winners and set rates for all matches (exactly the same as in TT).
Step 2. Move up and down the matches int he OOP. Most possible good picks should be top, risky ones should be down.
Step 3. (Optional) Read the scoring rules for WAR subevent. That subevent might need a bit of strategy (you can have a separate set of picks for WAR subevent)

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.

- You send your picks like TT, with set ratios (2-0 or 2-1), but in the order you are most confident of winning. So if Serena plays she's probably your top pick, and if two equal-ranked scrubs play each other that's likely the bottom pick.

- If your pick is correct, you get points according to how many picked the loser in that match. So if you picked Serena in WAR you would get 0 or 1 points, while picking Razzano could yield 20 points. Therefore you may want to be slightly more adventurous with your WAR picks as the potential payout is large.

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
