Re: Choose-Your-Player (C-Y-P) Rules, list of tournaments and lists of chosen players

I do not know, it would get complicated, we'll see.

I decided to finish this season with the current rules, from 2014 (if I do not give up on game) we will start with the new rules.

There might be some more test games.

We will vote for the new rules in off-season.

A combination of the two solution:

You run two paralel tourneys, with two pickings

We need to decide between those two test games.

When you want to start with the new rules? From US Open or 2014?

Re: Choose-Your-Player (C-Y-P) Rules, list of tournaments and lists of chosen players

It takes ages in every WTF games to be in the top section of the rankings (unless you get a great results in any of the slams). Somehow the previous results of top ranked players should be honored. (And Igor you know that I am not protecting my ranking ).

Anyhow the difference is GS (and maybe P5) picking. Both top ranked players and lower ranked players can pick top 8 seeds twice a year so the only relevant issue is the pick of a lower-lower ranked (lets say new) players. Player ranked 9 to 16 technically speaking can have exactly the same chance in GS than the top 8 players. I admit that if you are 38th in commitment list then you have almost 0 chance:

Solution I : When all commitments done. You simply divide into two halves, 1 field for higher ranked commitments and 1 field for lower ranked commitments and run two paralel tourneys. (Actually this can be done for each tourney) This way you dont give any advantage to higher ranked ones, but extremely increase the chance for lower ranked players. (Still keeping the 2 GS/year seed picking) (Actually any random halving would suit, but to a lesser extent)

Solution II : You should have two picks. An example: Assume 30 players in thew tourney. If a stupid player is sencond on rankings, then his first picklist is 2 long his second list is 29 long. Final score is the sum of the 2 picks. That would give some compensation to lower ranked players.

Just let me know and I provide Solution III, IV, V

Another suggestion.

For me that would be a good compromise and that would emulate the doubles

I started playing this year and my first ranking I believe was in the 70's, I am now at 29 and have been there some little time and I think it will take me ages to move up and I won't get that near the top.
I love playing this competion and would still play even if the rules do not change or only change a little. I would welcome opinions on what I have said be it negative or positive.
I think Igorche and DJDVD do a great job so many thanks to them.
If we start season 2014 from zero then in season 2015 we will be in the same position as now, top players will be on top and new players at the bottom. Or you think that every season we start from zero.

or even all the players can be chosen twice would be a good idea
