Well, it doesn't matter if they're in the Top 32, because there are no byes at slams.

Okay. We'll just give the Top Three byes and fake money incentives, 100, 50, 25%. A+.

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

Based on Budapest, where the winner was determined by who posted first because the other two tiebreakers were tied, we have been trying to think of a new tiebreaker.

I have thought of this: the backups. The person who has the LEAST amount of backup LOSSES can be determined winner. If they both have the same number, then use the games lost. Now, this way, backup choices are more important and as well, more circumstances for a tie to be fairly decided and less likely to occur.

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

Ya that sounds like a good idea. I think we need a tie breaking thread, which will give the order of tiebreakers and the rules and stuff.

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

Ok, so anyone think of some ways to run the dubs game? I would really like to get some test events going so we can get fed back.

Wouldnt it be better to count the sets lost and then the games?
