- They use wrong flags even tor two of TOP4 players :eek: (Ana and Jelena).
- Lindsay Davenport is rated like "D" (worst) class player :eek:

I just registered now, waiting for the email for the validation code.

It looks similar to last year's Whirlpool Fantasy Tennis. I won Season 1 Round 2 in the Whirlpool game last year (so it's not almost impossible to win as someone mentioned previously), hopefully will have the luck as well this time :bounce:

Once I am in, I will also join the wtaworld mini-league, hope I will be accepted.

iheartjelenaj
Jan 11th, 2008, 02:24 AM
yea i guess so. for me, davenport was the easy choice. then i looked at (most of) the other remaining players' stats and decided upon rezai. since i don't know the lower ranked players, i chose based on the numbers.

so i'm guessing ao'll be the first tourney?

the 11th is the 'deadline' for like free trading where you can pick anyone you want to be on your team without having to use up a "trade", for which every account has 2. i guess if you sign up after the 11th, that time you make your team is 'final' and you can't make adjustments, like you can't save it and come back later to change it.

i think it's a rather boring game :yawn:

Whirlpool Fantasy Tennis last year was way more challenging. I don't like the fact that they do not consider tournaments that are parallel to the main tournaments. I'd prefer having more transfers and being able to think a little bit more about strategical decisions ;)

agreed!

also what sucks is they give you the transfers at 00.01gmt monday but because you have to get them in by 17.00gmt it means you can't use them in time for the 1st day of the next week. if they gave you the transfers at 00.01gmt sunday then you could use them and it wouldn't make any difference to the current week.

it sucks compared with the whirlpool one.

I think those transfers are meant to be used for next week's tournament.

Anyway, I only noticed this week that only one tournament is eligible on each week, even if 2 others are being played. :o

it sucks compared with the whirlpool one.

Which already sucked pretty damned hard.

I'm still to figure out if you can make transfers once a tournament has begun, i.e. player A crashes out early on Monday, so before 17:00 GMT that day you replace her with player B, who goes on to win a match on Tuesday.
