Poll about Penta

Option 1 – Keep it as it is

Option 2- The ranking points are coming from two halves:

1. The same way as it comes now from the weekly race. E.g. for an international the winner gets 280 pts, the second 200 etc. (Just the way it is now )
2. The players are put in a draw (the same way as in TT), first round loosers gets 1 pts, 2nd round loosers 30pts …. Semifinalists130, RUP 200, winner 280.
The scores added and divided by/2. With this option you play against each other, but still can/should/must play for the whole week.

Option 3- Keep the weekly competition, but implement a league with weekly player against player matches. At the end of the league extra ranking points awarded.

Option 4 – Find out something which makes this game more attractive.

Re: Poll about Penta

When I first started playing Tennis Pentathlon, the first thing that caught my attention was the name of the game, mainly because I’ve always loved combined events in athletics. I know this is not a popular opinion among other players, but I don’t really care about the whole “Team vs Team” competition. It may sound selfish, but when I check the scores I’m looking to see my place in the table, not my team’s.

My suggestion is that TP becomes an all-week long, one hundred percent individual game. Everyone can play, all week: no discarding since there are no teams. I also think this would bring more people to the game.

Then again, I love the game and I’ll keep playing it no matter what, but these are just my two cents.

I agree with the last statement:
I love it and will keep playing it, as long as László is around.

I of course am also interested in my personal ranking, but what makes this game more interesting than others, is that I'm part of a team.
Maybe I'm lucky that I'm part of the best team ,
but that's how I feel.

Therfore I like it just the way it is now.
