8 Strikes (Tokyo) Bencicco Wins!!

8 Strikes (Tokyo)



This is a game of knowledge that's open to anyone who wants join. Just commit on the thread. A minimum of 8 players are needed to hold a tournament.

How to Play
An OOP for the round is posted by the manager and players must choose ANY half of the draw to choose. Picks are always sent to the manager. Picks should only have the names of the players you think will win. If the round has 16 matches you send 8 winners. If the round has 64 matches you send 32 winners.
This is how your picks should be sent if there are 8 matches in the round:

Wozniacki
Williams
Kvitova
Radwanska

(Picks must be sent in order! For example: If the OOP is this......

Caroline WOZNIACKI vs Garbine MUGURUZA
Serena WILLIAMS vs Dominika CIBULKOVA
Eugenie BOUCHARD vs Maria SHARAPOVA
Zarina DIYAS vs Sabine LISICKI
Petra KVITOVA vs Karolina PLISKOVA
Na LI vs Simona HALEP
Carla SUAREZ NAVARRO vs Alize CORNET
Agnieszka RADWANSKA vs Victoria AZARENKA

You need to send Wozniacki or Muguruza before anyone else. Basically don't send the Radwanska match before the Wozniacki match.

No set ratios or points are needed and all picks must be sent before the first match of the round starts. Any picks sent after will not be counted.

Here's the twist:
If you get a pick wrong you earn yourself a strike. Strikes are given when a player guesses a match wrong. In other words if the match is Williams vs Kanepi, and you guess Kanepi, but really Williams wins you'll get a strike for the wrong pick. 8 strikes and your out! A player will be disqualified if they do not make picks for ALL rounds.
Also, strikes stay through ALL rounds and do not reset after every round. The managers will post standings after every round. If everyone gets 8 Strikes there is no winner.

Tiebreaker
If at the end of semi-finals there is a tie, players will send the exact score of the finals match to the manager. Whoever gets the closest to exact wins.

Retirements and Walkovers
If there is a retirement or a walkover the match WILL count. If itís for a tiebreaker then the retirement or walkover will not count and in that situation the game will end in a tie.

Rankings and Finals
Rankings will be updated every once in a while. If you play hard enough, you will compete in the end of the year finals.
There is no need for you to look at the rankings to see if youíll make it, because Iíll PM you to let you know that youíve made it.

If you have any questions or would be interested in managing one send me a PM with the tournament you are interested in managing.

Please give me a chance with this game. It's the first time I'm trying it.

Commit now!

Re: 8 Strikes (Tokyo) Commit Now!

In please. Sounds like a great game

Bencicco's Baes: No one yet
I've got the stuff that you want
I've got the thing that you need
I've got more than enough
to make you drop to your knees
'Cause I'm the queen of the night, queen of the night oh yeah.

3 more people would be nice. That's what I said was needed to hold a tournament. There's still a day to commit so we should be good.
