RTP Week #1- NEW PREDICTION GAME, REALLY COOL! CHECK IT OUT!

This is kind of a corny name, and i'll change it if someone has any ideas, lol. First of all, iwant to apologize to all TFT players, that game will be stopping because it's taking longer than i thought to run, and plus, i had this idea for a game and i thought it would be much better .

The other note i would like to make is that i am also running PTS, so you can check that out in the Family Circle Cup forum too, these are both great games and i plan on dedicating a lot of time to both and making them run great .

Now, for the rules:

It's rather simple really, but it can't start until the main draw comes out, and normally you can't pick until qualifiers are placed.

In a normal WTA bracket, there are 28 players w/ 4 byes. Basically, what you have to do is take all 28 players and rank them, 1-28. Now, you have to be careful on how you rank them because you get points for who wins and the rank you gave them.
THE LEAST AMOUNT OF POINTS WINS!
The points you recieve will be equal to the number you ranked the player. lol, wow, that sounds confusing, but it's basically this:

Let's say that it is a 16 player draw, just to save time. I would take all 16 players and rank them 1-16, with 1 the best and 16 the worst (this is a made up draw, so it may be alittle strange):

1. Maria Sharapova
2. Lindsay Davenport
3. Martina Hingis
4. Svetlana Kuznetsova
5. Nadia Petrova
6. Patty Schnyder
7. Sania Mirza
8. Nicole Vaidisova
9. Francesca Schiavone
10. Lucie Safarova
11. Lisa Raymond
12. Camille Pin
13. Shinobu Asagoe
14. Mashona WAshington
15. Virginie Razzano
16. Roberta Vinci

Now, as these players win, i get points. Remember, your goal is to have the least number of points, and that's why you put your players who you know will win at #1, so that you get very few points for them. So, let's say for example, these were the results:

Maria Sharapova d. Virginie Razzano
Roberta Vinci d. Svetlana Kuznetsova
Lindsay Davenport d. Mashona Washington
Patty Schnyder d. Camille Pin
Martina Hingis d. Shinobu Asagoe
Lisa Raymond d. Nadia Petrova
Sania Mirza d. Lucie Safarova
Nicole Vaidisova d. Francesca Schiavone

Now, if you add up all my points i got from round 1, my total euqals 54 (1 for sharapova, 2 for davenport, 3 for hingis, 6 for schnyder, 7 for mirza, 8 for vaidisova, 11 for raymond, and 16 for vinci).

You will make the rankings before the start of the tournament and you will keep THE SAME RANKINGS FOR THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT! At the end, the player with the LEAST points is the winner.

I tried to make this as unconfusing as possible, but it didn't really work, lol, so, if you have any questions just ask

I will post the draws as soon as they are released, and i will number the qualifiers in the draw that i post, so that incase you have to make your rankings before the qualifiers are placed, then you can write like qualifier #1, qualifier #2, etc.

thanks to everyone who's joined so far

One more thing, about the rankings, you will get ranking points which will be based like the WTA Rankings, so the winner will get the same as the real touranment winner, 2nd place will get finalist points, places 3+4 will get semfinal points, 5-8 will get quarterfinal points, and so on. Then each week i will lupdated the rankings. I will post the exact points once the draw comes out
