Off-Season suggestion thread
 
Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve upon the game for the new year?

The only thing that I would like people to think about would be the tie-breaker rule of games lost. This rule makes sense if there are more then one person to get all the picks right, but when everyone loses early it makes no sense to take games lost. For example lets say there are 2 people left and they both lose on day 5. They had all the same picks for the first 4 days, but picked different people on day 5 who both lost. This is where the problem lies, if player A picked Anna K to win and she loses 6-3 4-6 4-6 and player B picks Jen C to win and she loses 0-6 0-6 Player B would win because that player has fewer games lost.
Player A Games lost (4,4,4,4,15)
Player B Games lost (4,4,4,4,12) Player B wins with fewer games lost

This doesn't make sense to me as Anna at least won a set and came closer to winning then Jen did.

I hope this all made sense.

I think for the most part no changes need to be made. Certainly not to the basic format of picking one person per day.

I would like to see byes eliminated but I'm probably in the miniority on that.

I like your suggestion for the tiebreak rule.

Whatever you say works for me Shaun;)

So my suggestion would be that if everyone loses before the final pick, we should use sets won first, then go to games lost if still tied.

I think your idea is good, and also one of the bad rule is when we have the same Points for 2 or more Player and the first Player that made the pick is the Winner, but I don't find any other different rule to apply in this case. :sad:
We can give the exequo Win, but it's not a good solution for me... so any other idea is appreciate.

So, adding the Rule of sets won can avoid this situation.

So of coarse this situation had to come up in an event that I ran again :p
So what happened was there were 3 people left, 2 lost on day 6 and one made it to day 7. The player to make it to day 7 wins but to figure out the finalist im going to do game lost without counting the games lost on day 6.

I think we should have a Race to the YEC.
That way, the YEC isn't included in the rankings. As well, it rewards the loyal to the game.
I'd be happy to run it and with Ivanovic Fan's rankings, it'd be easy to tabulate up until now and join in progress based on 2007's results. All I would have to do would

I agree about the Race to the YECs.

It's no problem for me to do that as well.
Rank for YEC is easy, cause all the points counts.

I was thinking maybe we should try to add a doubles version of the game. Basically it would be the same game except you play with a partner. You each make your picks for singles and it would also count for dubs. If one of the partners gets a pick wrong your team losses. You could each pick the same player on the same day. You don`t have to worry about not picking players that your parnter picked, as that rule only applies to your picks.
Anyways, what do you guys think?

:yeah: I think it's a good Idea but If all the top players team up, what's left for the lower ranked ones? But I still think it's a great Idea :p

Well thats why suicide is such a good game, your success in this game is based on what you do and not other people. If two teams finish the event they both get the same points.
