Re: Tipping #216: Australian Open
So here are the final scores for the 2013 Australian Open, congrats to the winner and all those who did well
Now here's another thing before we move on to the points. We spoke HERE
about introducing extra points into the game. Majority of those who voted said they are for this idea and I've said we'll therefore start using these additional points. However, I sense that most of you who played this tournament where still not aware of this potential change coming up, and since this is one of the most important tournaments in the season, I think it's best if we start with the extra points in Paris. As you can see in the thread dedicated to the poll about extra points, in the last post I've uploaded for everyone to see how AO 2013 tipping results would look if extra points would count - some major changes would occur, some people would drop out of bonus points and some would get in. The final ranking of many would be different, in some cases by quite a lot, than without them. Also, extra points would increase a points total of each player by a fairly large amount (between 75 and 90 points mostly) and that would be a very big change (the winner would get almost 100 extra points). Of course, the winner and the runner up would be the same, but there would still be many changes in the final outcome. I think this is the best decision for the moment. What about you?
I think it would be good, if you could post the potential final standings with the new point system. Just for comparitive purposes.
