Just opened this thread to know how many people are actually interested in 2013 to have special editions or a full year of Tennis Tipping. For doubles competition (WTA), Juniors events (1 or more tournament per week but always G2 or bigger) and potentially a parallel series of events for the 10k events.

:wavey:

yes :)

I don't know if you're referring to what is being done on MTF called "Doubles Tennis Tipping", it's like TT but for the doubles matches, and that's brilliant. That, plus lesser events would be exciting to predict.

Nice, everyone who sees this thread post something :yeah: I will send a link for TT players to see this and hopefully we will have more people interested. Depending on how things go I will start planning things for 2013. :yeah:

I could help you, Jose. For rankings, for instance. Not for managing, though.

Double might be fun...Juniors would be alot of work I think, too unpredictable lol

I think WTA Doubles would motivate more people, and the threads would be directly accessible in the tournaments' threads.

I like the idea. It might be harder though to get a good order of play for juniors and satellites.

From my experience on MTF, Doubles Tennis Tipping is tough as well as far as deadlines are concerned because doubles matches are often starting late and sometimes postponed. At least for satellites, Tennis Europe has clear OOP regularly updated. As for juniors, yeah, that would be difficult. But we could run only Juniors Grand Slams.

Obviously I will NEED your help ;)

But as for this moment we first should collect more people to the game so please advertise this to other people you might know, this is for all, I see a DTT is almost a sure thing but we need to collect more people for juniors and challenger events :yeah:

No problem with the doubles tennis tipping in what comes to OOP, obviously we will later (this year) decide on the rules of everything and make them very explicit for everyone, managers and player. ;)
Satellites is also not a big problem, USTA events have OOP and the other European challenger also have OOP.
Juniors is not THAT difficult, it still is difficuly but many Grade A and Grade 1 events have OOP on official websites and obviously we would only have tournaments which are big enough for that purpose :yeah:

I know from Penta that pre-marketing wont help too much, You start the story and it either attracts people in a few weeks or you simply stop it.

Thanks for the advise :yeah: I guess we will only see next year if it can be successful. Meanwhile you can all give suggestions for everything about the game :wavey:

Maybe for juniors we could tip round-by-round, instead of day-by-day? The draws are usually known so that means we wouldn't have to guess at the OOP.

Probably cuts the main draws down to 16, but I doubt we'll have that many more players anyway.

Just have sent a PM to Jose telling more or less the same.

Yep about the juniors I agree with this, but we will make seperate rules for the different tournament (who have different draws). I was even thinking we could do some kind of Round Robin stage for the first 3 days of juniors grand slams (Round64+Round32), then Quarters (Round16), Semis (Quarterfinals), Finals (Semis and Final). It would make the game even more funny in my opinion, that is if we only have 16 players maximum. In case we do get more, then KO should be done. For all the 32 players draw (real tournament draws) I guess we should do basic KO working similar to the actual TT. All the other rules are the same exactly to actual TT. Only things we need to change are deadline, schedule and how to make order of play and draw ;)

^^ :lol:

I answer your PM here, so everyone sees it :p I thought also of making a combined DTT, the way it works currently on the MTF (I think), you play by weeks and not by tournaments. Imagine Week 1 the order of play is based on Brisbane+Auckland+Shenzhen matches, and only one tournament is played that week consisting of matches from all events played. This in my opinion is the best thing to do. In case we have many many interested players (let's say more than 32) than we will make more events by week. ;) The same thing can also apply for the challenger events, combining more than one tournament and making a bigger OOP.

-----------

I have talked with members from the board and we will get a forum (if the game is successful, of course) and everything will work seperatly from Tennis Tipping ;)

> YES.
But yet again, when we'll be in Memphis and in Europe for instance, that could be a pain in the neck for the manager to make an OOP.

No doubles test event as there is no high quality ITF tournaments, but we will start from 2013 with Week 1 tournaments. I should receive some information from moderators soon and then I will probably announce something here ;)
