Suggestions for 2008

Here's a thread for those who have suggestions for 2008.
I believe a few things can be done to make the game more attractive. Discuss!

Thought about a 17 best tournaments system or commitments, to avoid the fact that the ones in top 10 are actually those who never forget to play.

And give points like at PAW (ranking in a tournament => certain amount of pts). Would make things more interesting as well. i.e. it's catastrophic for your ranking atm if you forget to play a GS. You can drop from #15 to #30 and it's VERY difficult (nearly impossible, lol) to get back there.

Time to give ideas, guys ^^.

Re: Suggestions for 2008

I think the rankings should be changed to something similar to PAW. It would work PERFECTLY for this game.

Re: Suggestions for 2008

Yeah i think PAW rankings would be the best idea.

I.E. I played most of the year this year and have had decent results at most tournaments, but it's not reflected in my ranking. I also forgot to play Wimbledon, but have consistently played smaller tournaments which feels like it does next to nothing for your ranking no matter how well you do.

Re: Suggestions for 2008

So, I think it's a good idea to use a PAW-like point system.

17 best tournaments? It would be very interesting but nonsense if commitments are not included.

Commitments => 1 tournament/week? I don't know if there will be enough players for that.

Re: Suggestions for 2008

And a few details:

- Edited picks: if they were edited before the tournament began, I think it should be okay.
- Forget about that Q/LL1, 2, 3... that was used sometime last year. Only Q1 def. Q2 or Q2 def. Q1 (following their placement in the draw), when they're facing each other.

Please give your opinion, FITD players!

Re: Suggestions for 2008

I like the commitment and PAW rankings idea.

I still don't think editing picks is a good idea. People may change them based on what other people have done. Especially when it comes close to the YEC.

i think its easier just to say no edited picks-then people dont get confused

i agree with the qualifier thing though 1 def 2 simplifies it

the ranking thingy sounds good too

Re: Suggestions for 2008

For the rankings, if we begin anew, it will put too much emphasis on the early tournaments.

So I suggest we calculate the rankings both ways. The "PAW-esque" rankings will be the Race while the normal rankings where we count ALL points will be for official records, such as who is # 1. And then at the close of 2008, we'll have our "PAW-esque" system in place.

Unless someone wants to research and revert the entire ranking system to PAW but that would take AGES.

I think this is going to be the easiest for all of us!

Wow Then go for it i guess.

I actually did the same thing for the game I ran although there wasn't nearly as many players.
