LoRT '12 | Brisbane International | New format (Read OP)



Hey

Welcome everyone to the first event of the season, just a reminder of the new rules that are in action starting from this tournament onwards. I'd like to put emphasis on one new addition, not just graphics will be sent out, but also QUESTIONS regarding any topic (trivia like). So don't assume that you will receive 3 sets of graphics, but a mixture of graphics and questions is more likely. Good luck!

http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=449746


Rules Outlined:

1. You will have 12 points to split in each set. 1 to 12.
2. Each value will have to have a direction associated with it, either Left or Right.
3. [Same as old rules for scoring] http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....4&postcount=22
4. At the start of each round, all players will be sent a PM with 3 graphics OR questions OR a mixture of both. Those 3 graphics will consist of 3 tennis players that have been 'shaded' out and any questions may or may not be relevant to tennis.
5. Your job is to correctly guess the three players and or answer the questions sent in the PM.
6. Instead of the higher ranked player serving first, the player that correctly guesses the first graphic/answers the first question will serve first. (This is a BIG advantage).
7. The second graphic/question will be used to determine the first 'identical' score.
8. The third graphic/question will be used to determine the first tiebreak.
9. Computer generated players will have points ranging from 1-9 and 1-3 repeated. So no 11, 12 or 13.

Example Set of Scores: L5, L7, R1, R9, R12, L3, L4, R2, R6, L11, R10, L8.
Why have these guessing questions?
- It removes the requirement of using a coin toss every single time identical scores, or tiebreaks come up. (And they are heaps fun!)

How does doubles work?
- Same format, except each team will send answers together.

What happens if we each guess the graphics/questions correctly?
- If both players guess the graphic/question correctly, the next one will be used in its place. It is highly unlikely that both players will guess all three players/questions correctly (no offence). In the event that it does happen, the old system will be used...of the higher ranked player serving first and coin toss identical point determination.

Advantages of these new rules?
- You only need to split 12 points in each set. Should be a lot easier to send points (less time consuming).
- Guessing the player removes the requirement of constantly tossing coins, and if you're unlucky like me, I'm sure you'll appreciate this alternative.
- Determining who serves first used to fall on the higher ranked player. Serving first is a massive advantage. I actually checked and on more than one occasion this year an entire match could go two different ways based on who starts serving! This new rule makes it more fair for both players.

And of course, finally, it will be less time consuming to score as well.

This tournament will start on Tuesday 3rd January 2012. All points are due before 10.00AM AEST on 03.01.12.
