FITD Stuttgart - Herzliche Glückwünsche an Nottheone!

F-I-T-D Stuttgart 2019

Here's what you need to know:

1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread.

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) Every player can replace his/her draw only once per tournament whatever the reason of replacement.
If you are changing picks, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win, or you may say "Qualifier 2" which means that you predict the other qualifier to win.
If you didn't determine Qualifier 1 or 2, your pick will not be counted.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.

8)If players scores are tied, they will remain tied. There are no tiebreakers.

9) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round. DO NOT have 'Player1 d. Player2' as it will make the manager's job much easier
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the games section.

Re: FITD Stuttgart

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PICKS



If you fail to follow these rules, you risk your draw being discarded.

1) At least make an effort to try to minimize the number of spelling errors. Think about it this way, if everybody made 2 spelling errors, it would take a lot of time to go back and fix all of the errors people made.

2) Spaces between rounds do not bother me at all. Again though, try not to.

3) Use the draw that I provide you with to help make your predictions.

4) In a case where two qualifiers play each other, please specify which qualifier you want to win. 'Qualifier 1' or 'Q1'/'Qualifier 2' or 'Q2' If you want a qualifier to beat a known player that got put in the main draw, you can just write 'Qualifier' or 'Q'.

5) It's my 8th/9th FITD management (and first this season!), and if I make a mistake, PM me and let me know. You're welcome to rescue me if I'm getting in the middle of a huge mess.

6) I just need to point out that items 1 to 4 are really important. They are

7) Pay attention to any late withdrawals. I'll do my best to update the main draw post and tag you in time in order to change your picks.

8) Your picks should be listed as in the example:

Code:
R1
Halep
Suarez Navarro
Stephens
Garcia
Muguruza
Sharapova
Hsieh
Buzarnescu
Pliskova
Kerber
Kasatkina
Svitolina
Williams
Kontaveit
Sevastova
Wozniacki
R2
Halep

This is NOT your event. Are you not reading the posts at the Managers' Thread?

It's clear he doesn't. This is like the third time this month this issue flares up again.

Enough is enough already. aerosmash is in charge of the managers thread and tournaments are given out based on his choice. That is part of the responsibility of running the thread. Every post needs confirmation and itÂ’s even listed in the first post I believe. aerosmash will LIKE or ADD your name to the front page of the managers thread to confirm. By posting in the managers thread your are REQUESTING a tournament and not telling.

Come on, we are mature enough to make something like this not be an issue.

This is part of the reason why I am borderline quitting managing FITD here, there is just too much going on here and I do not have time to deal with this nonsense.
twight6 and Poltergeist like this.
