I guess it's a valid proposition for discussion. Maybe we can wait for some other suggestions on how this regression should be applied and its rules and put it to vote to see if the majority approves?

But IMO 35yo is too soon to penalize the players and also 1%, 2% etc too much. Maybe -0.5 point each year after 40yo would be more sensible and not harm or demotivate the users responsible for them, especially because the players who are over that age are from the users who have been playing for a long time and did much for the FWTT, having them abandon the game would be awful.

I disagree.
What 40+ player can use all of these points?
After 8 years, at 48, they would still have 111 points to send.
What 48 year old player can seriously still compete with 24 y.o.?

Also, every manager can still start off with a new player aged 16 and climb back up.

This discussion seems to come up every few months and I have the feeling it's more about the points - and that's, at least for, not such a big thing as you guys make it.


Take several tournaments from last season for example, were we had several players winning title sending in FEWER points than they have. The most important example would be Lindsay Raymond, who won the US Open while sending in a combination missing 3-5 points in total. To sum it up: it's not about the points the experienced players have (and these points will be removed after four years anyway), it's about the strategy a player uses and sends in.


On a personal note: at the end of the day, it's a still a game; I think it's good to make FWTT as realistic as possible, but we're not the WTA. And if this sometime in the future means that I will need to retire my player or I will lose points because I reached a certain age, I will retire immediately and stop co-running this game. Jennifer is my very first player I ever had, I've started playing this game with her many years ago, still being in school, following Jennifer Capriati as her tennis fan.....yes, I have an emotional connection to my player and I'm proud of what I achieved in this game.



If enough players want a poll on it by the end of the semester, have it; but keep in mind: if a certain result will happen, I'm out of this game.

That's not what I said and you know that. We are always open for suggestions, we try to make it everything transparent. We want every players opinion. And I gave my opinion on this matter. And we hear every voice, newcomers, veterans, that doesn't matter at all :D

It's not about that I have less points than veterans. For example, it's impossible for me to be a player with most titles etc.

I see both sides of this argument but it’s only a game!!!!

How about this for a solution!

The Tour started in like 2000, right!

So why don’t the older players simply change the date of birth of their players!

For example, Casanova born in 76 change this to 86 - have her be 33 instead of 43 and then there is no problem!!!

She started in 2000 aged 14!

Just a thought! &#55357;&#56832;&#55357;&#56832;&#55357;&#56832;

Oh, and btw Hingisafrilia is not 58 that was Xhaka being dramatic!

To be or to beat? And yes, indeed, that's very possible. As I explained above.
I thought to be at top of list with most titles

This is all started from Xhaka's mouth, telling everyone that Fleri is 58 years old...girl! concentrate on your own game rather than confusing other players especially newbies ;)
