2016 Olympic Games - Congrats Rocketta & Belgium, gold medal winners!

The 2016 Olympic Games: Tennis Poker Pentathlon!

Trying a new format for the 2016 Olympics: if it’s successful, we might make it a new regular game.

It is a combined event, where your 5 scores in each leg will be considered: singles combination score, singles overall, doubles, doppio giallo and national team. Each score will be compared to the leg best performance in that discipline to calculate a percentage score. If you have the best score you get 100 points, if you have less you will score in proportion to your result. For example, with a best score of 120, if you have 40, you will get 40 / 120 * 100 = 33 points. The sum of your 5 scores in the 5 different categories will be your Pentathlon score for that leg. The maximum possible score in a leg is, of course, 500.

The 2016 Olympic Games: Tennis Poker Pentathlon!

Example: Punky’s 8th leg performance.

Singles scores: 42 for the combination, no round wins, so also 42 overall.
The best scores were by singles winner JankovicSavior, 224 & 574.
Punky scores 42 / 224 * 100 = 19
And 42 / 574 * 100 = 7

Doubles: 34 with GoOudinUSA, best score 229 by Princess Fiona & Tetetubby.
Punky scores 34 / 229 * 100 = 15

Doppio Giallo: 61 with Rocketta, best score by Princess Fiona & The Crow, 335.
Punky scores 61 / 335 * 100 = 18

National team: 37 by New Hogwarts, with EU’s best score of 249.
Punky scores 37 / 249 * 100 = 15

Punky’s Pentathlon score for the 8th leg is 19 + 7 + 15 + 18 + 15 = 74 points.

The 2016 Olympic Games: Tennis Poker Pentathlon!

The 12 posters playing all the 5 disciplines have been admitted to this game. There will be one elimination per leg from the 1st to the 8th leg: the last poster in each leg will be out. The 4 posters left in the 8th leg will be playing for the medals: the sum of all the scores throughout the 2016 season will decide the podium.

See you soon for the first leg results.

Re: 2016 Olympic Games: new game, Tennis Poker Pentathlon!

It's much easier to post the .jpeg.

In black, in each column, you can find the 1st leg scores for each poster, and in red all the scores turned into a percentage.

Tetetubby had the best score in all the 5 disciplines, getting 500 points.

Vaedda is the last poster in the first leg and is eliminated.

All the other 11 advance to the second leg.

Good luck everyone!

Re: 2016 Olympic Games - Rocketta wins 2nd leg, Ceze out, Tetetubby leads

10 posters advance to the 3rd leg.

The current podium would feature Tetetubby, Rocketta and Princess Fiona, but anything can happen as one bad leg can ruin the whole season: Ceze, second after the first leg, has been eliminated.

Good luck everyone!

Re: 2016 Olympic Games - Rocketta wins 5th leg, Fiona out, -Ph51- & Belgium lead

5th leg results.

Rocketta gets the best score, and the top 3 in this leg are also the current season leaders and virtual medal winners.

The Crow is last but one for the second consecutive time, but saves himself with quite a margin, as Princess Fiona gets the lowest score in all the 5 disciplines and is eliminated.
