If we're going to have intermediate standings they should be as accurate as possible.
Not really the same thing - anyone can calculate how many extra points each player earned, as long as he/she has some time and puts in a bit of effort. For example here in Katowice all you have to do is sum up points from R1 with R2/2, QF/3, SF/4 and F/5; not exactly rocket science

True. Well it's up to each manager how they want to do it, really.

Re: Extra points (idea) poll

Fair enough. Some ten days ago I added the part about extra points to the opening post thread - I just forgot to add it doesn't apply for doubles (will do it later today).

Re: Extra points (idea) poll

Sorry about this random bump, but I have been really busy and I literally had no idea about this rule.

Would anyone please explain me about this? I have few doubts.

We started it a few months ago and it basically means that in singles every correct pick is worth one point more than before. So for R1 it's 1+1, for the next one 2+1 etc. The manager chooses if (s)he'll calculate the extra points upfront, cause my initial idea was to add them only after the tournament has finished, on top of regular tournament points, but some have disagreed so I let a manager to decide on this. So to sum it up, now we have:

tournament points (like before)
+ extra points (one for each correct pick, regardless of round)
+ bonus points (if you've made it into top 8 or 12)

Hope this explains it
