Graphics Makers' Tour Rules - http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=363624

It is revised to read the rules before committing.

To commit just write "in"

Commitments will close on April 19 - possibly earlier, depending on when the exhibition ends.

Contestants will be split up in teams, there will be no seedings. The number of teams will depend on the number of sign-ups.

The teams will consist of 3 or 5 people with each person playing one set per match. Each team will choose a team captain and a team name. The captain will do the line-up for each match. The draw format will also depend on the number of teams but it will possibly be Round Robin with a potential final.

Task 1

Your first task as a team is to find a team name. Red, blue and yellow are not really your team names - just temporary ones. Be as creative as possible.

The second part of the task is to find a team captain. The chosen captain will send in the official team name via pm and also decide what team member does what task in the future rounds.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

beni
Mar 31st, 2009, 06:32 PM
I have a question. If our team doesn't find 2 more players and gets disqualified then there would only be 5 teams; one team would be left with no opponent. Who gets the walkover?

I asked some freinds on the board to come and play. Do you have anyone you could ask?

Sexysova
Mar 31st, 2009, 06:36 PM
I think you should do 6 captains (six highest ranked) and then the rest by random.org

This is a round robin tournament.
In case someone doesn't send and the pink team is not full, the alternates will recieve 24 hours to make a graphic.

I'll try!

...and I agree with Sexysova

*edit*
there's a good chance I might find one player for our team.

Ya. Agreed. That's was we did last year ;)

Andreas
Mar 31st, 2009, 06:43 PM
1. We only have 5 teams, with a possibility for 6, so it wouldn't be 6 highest ranked.

2. Not going to happen. The teams are final.

Mar 31st, 2009, 06:44 PM
yeah agree with the captains too:angel:
maybe someone not playing can re-draw :devil::p

Andreas
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:08 PM
The board has decided not to change the draw (2 votes to 0)

Poiree
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:23 PM
first of all I agree that you and Gigi can't be unbias since you are probably happy with your teams. I am happy with my team too, but the draw is really unbalanced IMO.

I also think that Andreas shouldn't have a vote here as a board member since he is running the tournament and the complaints were directed at him. When this happened to me at AO I asked Gigi and Sean to make decisions.

I will think about playing this event for a bit longer, but I might have to withdraw too :o This is supposed to be about making graphics and not playing with your friends.

beni
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:23 PM
ok, if you say so.
...but if you change your mind, you can have your spot back anytime.

Petkorazzi
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:36 PM
For the ones that are unhappy with the draw, I find only two choices: Other stay and play with your group, or withdraw. :) The draw will not be changed in any case, because then somebody else may be unsatisfied with the draw so the whole story will start over again.

Sean.
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:40 PM
It's more than just a case of being unhappy Gigi. If the draw was fixed it really isn't fair. Especially as Andreas is a BM. Plus an uneven draw really doens't make for a good tournament.

Sexysova
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:40 PM
if somebody unbiased will draw it then nobody can complain..

We can't keep on doing the draws on and on till everyone thinks it's fair.

The screenshot was provided also so I don't see a problem. Random draws ≠ Even draws.

I didn't see more than 5 players complain. :scratch: And I am pretty sure there are more than enough players happy with their draw. That's life :shrug: Try hard and beat the biased team, not like anyone is unbeatable here.

i think this is the first time players asked for re-draws and it shows that most see the draw biased

and about the screenshot..everyone here knows how to work the photoshop if you know what i mean even paint:p

do you mean there should be a maximum of 5 players to complain so we can have a re-draw?:confused:
well then lets see when most of the players get online and see the draw..and see how they react to it

Andreas
Mar 31st, 2009, 07:59 PM
The draw has only been out a few hours, most have not even seen it yet. Only 1 player so far has liked the draw (excluding BMs). Do you honestly think the weaker teams stand a chance against the yellow or green team?

Rankings wise, green team is the weakest. This team is also possible with a redraw.

Which doesn't mean she isn't allowed an oppinion :rolleyes:

It's just a game. :o I am pretty sure Andreas wouldn't do that ;)

yeah its just a game and everyone wants it to be fair
and im sure that if you had a not so good team and see other posters had the unbelievably coincidental best team possible you would be thinking its biased too:)

Rankings wise, green team is the weakest. This team is also possible with a redraw.

The green team is the most suspicious IMO. All the graphics makers know how eager Andreas was to get Nikkiri., Mikey., and Adal to play in this tournament. As we all know they rarely or never play GMT (and when they do they play doubles together), so I wouldn't be surprised if their condition to enter this event was to be on the same team :help:

1 - you are the manager. the players complained about you, so you can't decide on what is to be done, even if you are a board member.

2 - because of the aforementioned, the board cannot make any decision until Niya comes online :help:

We really shouldn't argue. It's not getting anywhere or helping the game. I had my own reasons for leaving the board Andreas. Even if I chose not to share them with you.

I guess the Dictator & Copycat board has made his decision & we have to follow it, for the sake of the tournament, no matter if everyone else disagrees. But evidently there are some issues with the board that need sorting out at a later date.

Sean.
Mar 31st, 2009, 09:44 PM
Well my oppinion is that when enough people would like something, the board should be prepared to back down - after all they are only there to guide and not to rule. It's all very easy for you to say when you were in one of the strongest teams. Ask yourself if it were different what would you be saying? ;) If you don't say how you feel then no one can remedy it, I'm not one to sit and do nothing when I think something is wrong - sorry I can't help that! :shrug:

I'm not going to argue anymore. Because, as you said, it achieves nothing :hug:

just because teams are stronger than the others, it does not call for a redraw.
all players should be capable of playing on their own and be able to hold up their own weight and not rely on a strong graphic maker to be on their team to be able to win.
if one group is full of weak graphic makers, than so be it.

I am out now, so I guess I am gonna be attacked for expressing my opinion again, but I completely agree with you. IMO that team isn't even the strongest, I just think it is unfair. Especially since I suspect some of these players might have put a condition to be with each other on the team in order to play.

Sorry if I am wrong :p

A letter from Niya to GMT players :bigwave:

Hi guys,

Today, when I came home after a tough day at school, I went to wtaworld. In my userCP I saw 3 PMs, all of which contained a word "complaint". Surprised, I read them all. Ok. Then I read this thread. And here's what I think about it. Maybe it is something that should be said personally to some people via msn, PM etc but I want to make it public.

To me, being a board member is not being a king of GMT. Being a board member is making this game enjoyable for others. And this includes listening to the players' opinions. And this is something that was massively ignored today. I know from what I've read in this thread that some people might not agree, but this is my point.
Speaking particularly, even if the draw was random - which I don't want to question now - it could have been redone because of respect to the players. Not only is the game about fairness but also about attitude to each other. Actually, it is attitude that bothers me in this whole situation.

To finish this long boring tirade, I wanna say that I am jumping on the "pull-out" bandwagon, aka I withdraw.

Thanks for your attention,
Niya

Well-done anyone who read it :bigwave:

3 teams have found a name. I'm still to recieve a name change from the Green team. Tasks will be up in 45 minutes. After that the team captain is revised to split the tasks out to the 5 team members (including himself). The captain is supposed to send the graphics in, when he has them all. This round, $uricate will send his team's graphics to Poiree. She will forward them to me, when I have all the graphics from my team. Droolv. and StunnaLights are both supposed to send to me.

I cant understand this task..

the but is negative, so the team you pick is not allowed to be in the World Group ;) about the other part you will have to wait for Andreas. Not sure if it should be the country or the team :shrug:

Andreas
Apr 8th, 2009, 09:36 AM
Since I didn't specify it, it can be the country itself or the players from the country.

I was going for the 2nd option though ;)

Yana replaces Sexysova - she isn't required to do a task for this round, since the captain has made 2 graphics instead.


:sad:

Sorry Yana, I didn't feel good about giving someone a really short deadline because I wasn't sure someone would sign up. Come back strong in the next match then (unless it's the one against us :p)

:ras: I wish I didn't have to do the task with such a deadline. No need to be sorry. She is lucky
