Tennis Triathlon -- Bucharest __ Send for Monday!!

Tennis Triathlon -- Bucharest



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. Instructions will be sent to rookies.

You compete in three different disciplines shown below.

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

Re: Tennis Triathlon -- Bucharest

Disciplines


Discipline I. – TC (this is pretty close to TT or Tipping)
2 point for each correct picks, additional 1 for correct SR

Discipline II. – WAR (Worth A Risky Pick?) (this is pretty close to PAW, just the scoring is different)
You get points according to how many picked the loser in that match

Discipline III. - Sequence (this is an extended suicide)
If first row of your pick is a winner (but the second is not) you got 11*11 point.
If the first two rows of your pick are winners (but the third is not) you got 12*12 points.
If the first three rows of your pick are winners (but the fourth is not) you got 13*13 points. Etc…





Scoring example here (Tennis Pentathlon #4 - Congrats Teem India, Dynamo Morpork and valac222)

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.
