ART- The Amazing Race Tour- Sign Up and Rules Thread
 


Hello and welcome to the Amazing Race Tour. A new concept by your managers no-hay-igual and Serena_4ever. This game requires you to choose 3 players ranked either inside the top 200, top 50 junior players, a recently retired player or a doubles specialist. Your players will then take part in a race around the World to complete the ultimate goal of winning multiple grand slams and becoming the world's best player!!

Tournaments will be consisted of a 24 tournament calendar, split up into three seasons consisting of 8 weeks each, like this:



Calendar
Season 1
(EXIBITIONS- Hopman Cup and Hong Kong Asian Games)
Week 1: Auckland - G3 / Sydney - G3
Week 2: Melbourne - G1
Week 3: Dubai - G2 / Stochkolm - G4
Week 4: Doha - G3 / Minsk - G4
Week 5: Kuala Lumpur - G3 / Acapulco - G3
Week 6: Indian Wells - G2
Week 7: Miami - G2
Week 8: Charleston - G3 / Johannesburg - G4

Season 2
Week 9: Stuttgart - G3 / Cairo - G4
Week 10: Rome - G2 / Makaraska - G4
Week 11: Madrid - G2
Week 12: Paris - G1
Week 13: Birmingham - G3 / Nottingham - G4
Week 14: London - G1
Week 15: Copenhagen - G3 / Budapest - G3
Week 16: San Diego - G3 / Bratislava - G4
Week 17: Cincinnati - G2 / Vancouver - G4

Season 3
Week 18: Toronto - G2 / Campos Do Jordao - G4
Week 19: New York City - G1
Week 20: Seoul - G3 / Athens - G4
Week 21: Tokyo - G2 / Helsinki - G4
Week 22: Beijing - G2
Week 23: Moscow - G3 / Torhout - G4
Week 24: Istanbul - Special (1-16)

When a sub forum is opened, you will commit for your first 8 tournamnets in season 1 and every season you have 5000 dollars to spend. You split these dollars into your 8 weeks which you committed for e.g

Week 1- 1000 dollars
Week 2- 400 dollars
Week 3- 900 dollars
Week 4- 400 dollars
Week 5- 400 dollars
Week 6: 400 dollars
Week 7: 1000 dollars
Week 8- 500 dollars
NOTE- No more than 1000 points for a tournament and no less than 300 points

These dollars are then converted into points and you have to split these into three sets e.g

Week 1- 1000 dollars
500-400-100

Every grade of tournament is worth different points:
G1: Winner: 2000 points
Finalist: 1400 points
Semi Finalist: 1000 points
Quarter Finalist: 650 points
R/16: 300 points
R/32: 150 points
R/64: 1 point

G2: Winner: 1000 points
Finalist: 650 points
Semi Finalist: 400 points
Quarter Finalist: 270 points
R/16: 200 points
R/32: 110 points
R/64: 1 point

G3: Winner: 500 points
Finalist: 410 points
Semi Finalist: 350 points
Quarter Finalist: 220 points
R/16: 50 points
R/32: 16 points
R/64: 1 point

G4: Winner: 250 points
Finalist: 180 points
Semi Finalists: 100 points
Quarter Finalists: 65 points
R16: 20 points
R/32: 1 point

Woop, well excited!! Get committing people, I think that this is going to be a new and exciting game on tennis forum!! If you don't understand any of the rules, then just ask us, we will be happy to help. We have decided not to commit our players yet as we want to give others a chance to choose theirs, before we choose ours. Thanks :-)

Sorry but I think it is not the best idea that managers play their own game! :shrug: I mean, they can see all other players points and tactics and I just think it is not fair. :yeah:
