This is a game where you pick during a whole tournament and cannot be out after having a bad day.
Despite the name the game is very simple. Game manager puts OOP every day. You pick winners and set rates for all the matches and your task is over for the day. (If you are lazy to pick set rates then 2-0 will be given to your picks.)
There are five different disciplines, all using the same picks. Disciplines I. (TC) and V. (FO) are easy, really does not need any extra from you. Discipline II. (WAR) might need a little bit of strategy. Discipline III. (Sequence) and IV.(PRO) need some time if you care about them.
There are individual races for each discipline and for the pentathlon too. You can create teams (5 players) if you wish, there are team races involved too.

Discipline I. – TC (for historical reasons)
Scoring is easy. You got three points if you pick the winner and the correct set ratio. You got two points if you pick the winner and incorrect set ratio.
Discipline II. – WAR (Worth A Risky Pick?)
It is easier to go through on scoring through an example:
(OOP) Goerges vs Radwanska
Let’s say 8 picked Radwanska and 3 picked Goerges. If Gorges wins the three players who picked her get 8 points (each). If Radwanska wins the players who picked her get 3 points (each).
Discipline III. - Sequence
You should vary the order of the matches in order to have the most possible winners earlier in the sequence. If first row of your pick is a winner (but the second is not) you got 11*11 point. If the first two rows of your pick are winners (but the third is not) you got 12*12 points. If the first three rows of your picks are winners (but the fourth is not) you got 13*13 points. Etc…
Discipline IV. – PRO (Place in Right Order)
You should vary the order of the matches in order to have the most possible winners earlier in the sequence. First row of your pick has a 16 multiplier, second row has 15, third 14 etc. If your pick on the row is a winner with correct set rate your score is 2*the corresponding multiplier, if your pick on the row is a winner but with incorrect set rate then your score is 1* the corresponding multiplier.
Discipline V. – FO (Fitd Online)
It is a kind of FITD online (I hope it is not copyrighted). It is easier to go through on scoring through an example:
(OOP) Goerges vs Radwanska (R1 match in an International) Winner: Radwanska
You get 30 points if you picked Radwanska. The scoring follows WTA ranking points.

6 vote for combined, 1 for Estoril (guess who :D), 1 for NOT combined. (:lol: So as a Hungarian politician it will be Budapest :lol:)
I open the thread under Estoril today, players who asked for autocommit donot have to commit.
Apr 25th, 2012, 08:45 AM
I want one tourney. :angel: Two tourneys will be more time consuming. :unsure:
Apr 25th, 2012, 09:38 AM
Combined next week sounds nice.
But will be difficult to auto-commit as a rule.
Apr 25th, 2012, 09:40 AM
Oh no Laszlo have u attached any image as result? I wont be able to view the images from Office :damn: Will check in mobile though :p
Apr 25th, 2012, 09:47 AM
BTW Laszlo BridesMaidpova is in 2 teams in the table ;)
Apr 25th, 2012, 09:49 AM
If we stopped to discard players, and a team consists of 5 players, why do we calculate only top 3 players for each team? Why not all players?
Apr 25th, 2012, 10:01 AM
No pick from Hakon and Mehdi yet
Apr 25th, 2012, 10:35 AM
I vote against two tournaments, it is a huge time commitment. :(

What is the point in sending picks if there is a combined OOP.I guess people are getting confused,you still have to commit in a single thread where Laszlo or someone will post a combined single OOP daily.
No need to discus on this.If Laszlo wants a combined OOP it is okay.
Apr 25th, 2012, 11:28 AM
^combined OOP == more players to pick == more time needed to select picks.
