If you don't mind the scorings n stuff, of course. :)
No. You think we should have a different point system for ITFs (i.e. not as many) or keep it the same?
Will do it but maybe trial it later in the year and just stick to WTA events until the uni term is over....so maybe after Wimbledon ;)

I have a different view.

I prefer it to stick to WTA.

Because you have to take it into account that even some qualifications of WTA are enough unpredictable and unfamiliar to people. (like in Istanbul) What would happen in the ITF?Most of the qualies of ITF are a gathering of the unknown.

Plus what specific tournament are you choosing then if there are 2 or more with equally highest prize money?If you'd pick an European event,the names in the draw could be so uknown to Asian posters,likewise,if you'd pick an Asian event,the qualifiers could look all Greek to the European.And it loses the fun and the meaning of this game:guess who the qualifiers are and who they beat in the final round of qualifying through analysing the draw.

These are my advice. :) But you are the one to decide.This is a cool game. :cool:

Also decided to increase the points of Grand Slam events a little - suggestion from strastib.

I was thinking...

1) Wouldn't it be better if we PMed the picks so that there is no attempt of compying picks from top players? :)

2) Maybe we could make sth like doubles, 2 players team up, their result is added and the winner is made. :shrug:

I can see what you mean, but it is a lot easier to total up the points by just looking up one thread. Hopefully there is no copying anyway - it is just the same as FITD, Suicide Tennis, etc where people post in the same thread.

Thanks everyone for still playing.

I think that from next year maybe we will incorporate doubles into it as well. But I think that everyone should stick to the same partner for a minimum of three weeks or so.

I have been looking at the ITFs and its tricky as results of ITF matches can be hard to come by and as Y.J.CHANfan has said some players are too obscure.

Hi!
I would like to see everybody's oppinion on this idea:
I think it would be good if the tournamente winners/runner ups were given a couple extra points for that. Those points could be more in grand slams.
The reason for this is that sometimes it happens that the winner in one tournament gets less points than the 3rd or 4th in another tournament played that same week. Also, I beleive that adding this rule would make it even more important to be the winner, and it would help winners to move faster in the ranks. With our current system, people might be top 10 without having won a tournament.
I have no idea how many points we should give the winner, but we can discuss that later. I've already talked about this with Jonny, but he asked me to post it here.
Thanks!
Gaston

For stupid and forgetful people like me, would a block PM be possible to inform us of early Q-Ball starts? I didn't realise Tokyo started on Friday :eek:

Good point! Or will do a Q-Ball calender so players know when to expect the draw......btw. Could do PM but then it might annoy people, and might be considered spamming.

What do you think of these ideas?
Re-evaluate the scoring system, so its more fairer and proportionate scoring system - there have been times where the winner receives just one more point that the runner up for winning.

One idea is :
Winner(s) = 90
Runner Up(s) = 64
3rd-4th = 40
5th-8th = 24
8th-16th = 12
16+ = 4
The scores of 7/5/4/2 will remain to calculate the positions

I am thinking of making a rule where players can only play one tournament per week on weeks where there are more than one tournament which will make it easier to do the rankings. What do you think? This could lead to a bit of tactics, as players can choose which event to play................

A calender is a good idea and something I will be working on...........usual rule of thumb is that GSs and Premier 5s are early, as are the tournaments before slams, and then odd touraments like Memphis.

Please lets have some ideas to move Q-Ball forward!

I actually like the current system i.e. the actual points you scored go into your ranking. On the other hand it's a fact that in a Q-tournament with lots of withdrawals it's practically impossible to score as high as in a "regular" tournament.
I really like this game and I wouln't mind if there weren't any changes made. But if you will change something I will still continue to play, I guess :D.
