Ideas to improve PAW

Last nite I was thinking, if there was any good ideas for the improvement of PAW.

Here are my ideas:


Maybe have qualifying for the events where there is a large number of people e.g over 64.


This is just 1 idea I have had, so please share your ideas with us

Well, I thought of the same in the past, but how should we do that. The number of players has exploded and even "small" events have as much work as "normal size" events had a year ago.
Sometimes those Q-Draws are released really late. With the time-zones being so different, it would be a big problem to have every player pick in time. I think it is a matter of fairness. also, quali-draws vary in their size, how would you do that?
The idea is not bad, but I think it is very hard to realise. But thansk for your thoughts on the game. It's much appreicated.

i think it would b cool if there were a limited amount of places in each tournament and entry was based on rankings, to make it more realistic. so then players have to work their way up through the lower tiers like on the real tour. obviously everyone would b allowed to play the slams.

I like the idea of qualifying but it means extra work for us admins and it's pretty full on already...

Qualifying is a great idea, but in the past a lot of people haven't liked it. Maybe someone completely different to Aidan or sandg could run the Qualifying.

I think qualies could only be limited to really prestigous events like Grand Slams and Tier Is as they are the ones that tend to be out in a manner to make it possible for people to paw effectively with no hassle.

If you did that for big tournaments, it would also make them more presitigious and something people can work for, but it doesn't matter either way.

A cap on tournaments might make things more even, and easy for the managers running the bigger tourneys though, and now that I'm high enough I don't think it will effect me too much

I think players ranked outside the accepted ranking of the main draw should have to qualify, just makes it more realistic.

I agree! That does make it more interesting And we could have Gold Exempt lists too and such

True. A GE list would be cool!
Wait until Andrew gives us his view on it.

The rankings idea is very good - but qualifying will be difficult - because live scores can often be difficult to access and thus the admins will not know when the match started.

The only way to overcome this is to make the deadline for all picks of that day 5 minutes before the 1st match.

However - another difficulty is that many tournaments finish qualifying on day 1 on the same day as round 1. This wouldn't be a problem in grand slams but that's only 4 tournaments of the whole year.

And as Aidan said - we need more staff.

i prefer to limit the tournament, and no wild card will be given.. so the real commitment will get cut off..

maybe running 50k or 75k Tournaments when there are tournaments with lots of participants. I think the ITf Tournaments in France are quite good to manage cause of their great results update. I would like to run these tournaments!

But therefore we need new ranking distribution and other things. It is just a suggestion

I also sympathisize with a limited amount of players in one tournament (question is if I would also like that if I wasnt #39 in the rankings.....)

Some ideas: every month we have awards for Player of the Month and Riser of The Month ... i was thinking at the end of the year we could give away prizes for

Best Player in Tier I's
Best Player on US hardcourts
Best Indoor player

And my 'bright' idea: KNOCK-OUT SYSTEM

Example: we would need 128 players - someone should make a draw and everyone entering would have an opponent. We would need 7 tournaments to determine the winner. How would it work: when the pairs are made whoever gets more points at the end of the PAW tournament from both advances in round 2 of another tournament where another draw is made and so on ... great thing about this idea is that you don't need to be ranked best all the time to get far or even win a tournament. This competition wouldn't have any impact for PAW rankings (something like WTAWorld Popularity contest).
