Okay so there has been a new rule issued due to the recent use of "counting points." From now on, points are due before draws! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I will accept points until MONDAY 3PM BOARDTIME

The draw and thread will be posted right after the deadline! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

You can send points through [email protected] through MSN Messanger, AIM, or PMs! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

So get them points in! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

that makes sense too

there's no point if the top seeds always retain their positions. everyone here is ELITE!

EXACTLY!!!

Come on Tennisace, Anjelica de la Courtiere is right. If you go along this road, it will just become a boring old game of sending in an email once a week and hoping for the best! How boring!!!

Why not allow people to 'scout' there opponents, make the seeds work harder to keep their ranking, who's saying seeded players can't 'scout' their match-up's either.

Honestly Tennisace if you decide to change to points before draw then the seeded players will ALWAYS WIN (which would include me) and the non-seeded never get a chance. That is not fair to those ranked below them.

Please re-consider Tennisace, FWTA puts the draw out before asking for points and it is fun, you can do a bit of research about your opponent and try and work out what points they are likely to us, its like real life, preparing for your match!

It isn't cheating, calculating is not cheating, it is simply trying to 'guess' what points your opponent is using - and if most of the top seeds weren't so lazy and afraid of losing their ranking there is nothing stopping them 'scouting' either!!!

Well, I've had my say, I hope to god someone agrees with me so I don't look like a total wanker! <br /> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I think I'll change my mind too! I'd prefer to have the draws out first as well <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

i have a idea that can avoid guessing points accuratelly but it also can be figured out some. however, this needs your help, tennisace. tennisace, when you get the points. let any two sets follow the old rules but one of the three sets, that you just made the score by yourself. then we can guess the score but that not means we guess totally right, because one set's score is fake. how about that? that's just my own opinion. and how do you think about that, the ETA members? maybe that is not good idea, but i want to hear from you guys!
