Suggestion...

Do you think it would be a good idea to have a limit to the amount of tournaments you can play per year?

I think so because it would bring a more realistic spin to the game. A few of us, myself included played 36 tournaments this year and it's not really realistic because no one on the WTA tour plays every week.

With a limit, it would also make it more realistic in that we could actually plan out a schedule and it would bring different people to different tournaments and the best players won't win all the time. It'll give others a shot.

I know some of you are probably thinking, just don't play as much, but when there's a limit, everyone will be at the same level.

Let's get the discussion going...

i voted No because i thought it'd bore me cos i mainly come to the forum to play PAW but then i see ur suggestion and i agree from experience because everyone tends to play Tier 1's and so it would bring more people to the lower Tier's.

Always been supportive of a limit to the number of events entered.
I remember mentioning it a few times before....
Maybe limiting the number of events to somewhere between 25-30.

It allows you take time away from the game....eg holidays, exams, work commitments etc....
Removes the "pressure" of feeling that you have to play each week if you want to make the top 16....
and allows you to pick a "schedule" and gives more validity to the "commitments" rule because your choices are far more important.

I am also in favour of a ruling where the top 20 players MUST enter at least 2-3 Tier 3 or lower events each year...

Because there are players playing each week which never happens in the WTA.
I think it makes it more fair to other lower ranked players to improve their ranking.

I agree fully to vote "NO"
If limited the amount of tournament, many players will make new account and they can play in every week.
As Organizer, I just want the game's rule is simple, not much controls.

If limiting the number of events is difficult from an organisational point of view then maybe my suggestion of creating a rule that ensures that TOP20 or TOP30 players enter a set number of lower tierd events is a better idea???

I would have no objection to being told that my schedule MUST include a set number of TIER 3s or lower.
