Extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC?

Exactly what the title asks, should we extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC?

At the moment we have 8 qualifiers, just like on the WTA tour, but this year we've had almost 200 posters playing FITD. So, because this is a very popular game would you like to see the number of qualifiers extended to 16?

The poll will be open for 5 days!

Re: Extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC?

I think going to 16 is a great idea.

FILL-IN-THE-DRAW TITLES (16)
Pattaya City 2006 + Paris Indoors 2007 + Acapulco 2007 + Bad Gastein 2008
Stockholm 2008 + Montreal 2010 + AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2011 + Seoul 2011
Brisbane 2012 + Auckland 2012 + Bogota 2012 + Kuala Lumpur 2013
Dubai 2014 + Montreal 2014 + Seoul 2014 + Sofia TOC 2014

Re: Extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC?

Well, if it were 16 qualifiers I would have a chance to play, but I voted for 8 and here's why:

Even though 200 people played this year, less than half of that number play regularly, and even fewer play every week. Unless your picks are ridiculous, if you play every week you have a good shot at being at least around #40 just from sheer volume of events. I haven't done that well this year and missed several weeks, but I am at #14 right now and I think higher in the new ranks. Limiting it to the top 8 really does emphasize that these are the best players, not just the ones who played the most.

I'm not too passionate about this argument I just made, and it looks like I'm losing in the poll. I just thought I would present the opposing opinion. Obviously I will have no problem with playing the YEC should I qualify in the top 16.

Re: Extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC?

Well obviously there will be more votes for 16, because that gives the people not in the top 8, the other 192 people the chance to get in
I voted 8

That's very true Although cos there are less point available now it's going to be hard for someone outside the top 20 to get in I think, unless they go on a big streak

Well 14 votes to 3 is a bit clear so top 16 it is

Rankings out later today
