Smile What makes PAW so fun?

Hi PAW Players,

Just interested to see why PAW is fun game for you to play.

In my Opinion, I like PAW for three main reasons.

1. It is the only game where you are totally in control of your own points, which you gain through your own predictions. Thus, this game mostly requires skill and thought (ie - do i play it safe or go for a longshot?), rather than luck.

2. It helps following the WTA tour so much better. For example, I often check the live scores of matches that I would normally not be interested in, just for the fact that I picked that match for one of my PAWs.

3. It is a global game, with competitors from numerous countries. You get to meet a lot of players. Also, it is run very efficiently

What are your thoughts?

wwwwwwwoah this is old....

I agree with all your reasons Spike...and I also play because it's run by such a cool guy..I think because you know exactly who you picked and how many points are on the line, you really actually feel like you're in control...and it provides a thrill ...

I think this game is great because of the realism of it all!
The tour, the ranking points, the rankings, the prize money, and the commitments are all realistic!
That's because it is so well run! Thanx again to Spikey and sandg and all the other people who run tournaments!
I also like the fact that people from all over the world play!
It's just an EXCELLENT GAME!!!

I like this game a lot, I think it is very realistic. You are responsible for your picks and so on.
And Spikey is really nice!

I fully agree with Nathan.

This game is so good because of the people who organize it!
