View Full Version : ILTF - Sign Up and Rules Thread

Welcome to ILTF! The Innovative Ladies Tennis Foundation
"We promise you something WAY different from the other games"

Fasten your seatbelts, everybody, because you are embarking on one of the best Games to come to WTAWorld ever! As told in the title, this game is innovative. It's different, and it will be fun! It's run by Nagyovafan, and has a set of rules like you've never seen before. Here they are :

Tired of trying to fit 3 sets into 100 or 200 points? In the ILFT, you split 7,000 (yes... 7,000) points into 3 sets (yes... 3 sets). Here is how I pick the scoring for each set.

Win by 3,500 + = 6-0
Win by 2,000 - 3,499 = 6-1
Win by 1,500 - 1,999 = 6-2
Win by 1,000 - 1,499 = 6-3
Win by 600 - 999 = 6-4
Win by 400 - 599 = 7-5
Win by 350 - 399 = 7-6(1)
Win by 300 - 349 = 7-6(2)
Win by 250 - 299 = 7-6(3)
Win by 200 - 249 = 7-6(4)
Win by 150 - 199 = 7-6(5)
Win by 30 - 149 = 7-6 (6)
Win by 29 or less = 7-6 (7)

Easy enough, right? If not, feel free to PM me with questions. Same goes for the rest of the rules.

In the ILTF, the finals scoring is different from every other match. There will be 5 sets. The first set will have to do with picking a number 1-1,000,000. Yes, it is a broad range. In the beginning of the tournament, when you send me your points, MAKE SURE YOU SEND NOT ONLY THE POINTS, BUT THE NUMBER THAT YOU PICK FROM 1-1,000,000. If you do not send it in before the finals, if you make the finals, I will just count your number down as 1.

Whoever is closest in the number that they pick will win the first set, based on how close they were to the number that I picked from 1 to 1,000,000 at the beginning of the tournament.

The second set will be the first set of points that you sent in in the beginning of the tournament, and that have been used throughout the tournaments. The third set, to try and make it harder for an upset, will go to whoever is higher ranked. The scored will be based on the ranking difference. The 4th and 5th sets, if needed, will be the 2nd and 3rd sets of the points that were used the whole tournament.

If you do not like anything about the scoring, then please PM me, and I will see what I can do to change it, without changing it too drastically.

The player you pick can be anybody who ever played in the WTA Tour. I HIGHLY recommend you choose somebody more modern, but if you want to be Margaret Smith Court, go right ahead.

The rankings work as follows :

Loss in Round of 64 (if applicable) : 20
Loss in Round of 32 : 60

Excuse me, Admin. I don't want to be needy, rude, or annoying, but I wanted to know if I could get my own forum for this game? I know you've been getting a lot of games lately, but this will definately skyrocket once I can get my own forum.

I reccomend that you ask for a game sub-forum in Bug/Error Reporting and Questions
