:wavey: WELCOME TO TCM :wavey:
Tennis Club Manager (TCM) is a tennis simulator game. In this game, you must start your own tennis club and make the players from your club become champions.
Choose a name for your club, the name of the club manager, where the club is.
NOTE: Each club starts off as a base club. You will have 2 courts and a mini bar. When the players who belong to the tennis club get money on the tour, the money will go to their tennis club who can buy things for their tennis club, and those things will make the players have more points to use in matches (see PLAYING MATCHES).
EXAPLE: The club can buy a swimming pool, which will give more points in the calmness of players.
The Club can buy some hardcourts courts which will boost your ammount of points on hardcourts.
The club can buy a restaurant, which will boost players physical power.
The full list of all the things a tennis club can buy will come out later.
Then, you must select 2 pro players who actually exist on the WTA Tour, active or retired,for instance you can shoose Serena Williams but also Gabriela Sabatini of Steffi Graf, and make them play events on the tennis tour. The players you select to be pro tennis players start their career at 19 years and must retire at 28. Every time one of your players has to retire, you may start the career of a new player, but no club can have more then 2 players on the tour at a time.
All this information must be PM'ed to me.
Here is how the game works. To sign up for an event, simply commit to the event by posting your participation on the commitment thread for that tournament on the TCM Forum or on the TCM Sub-forum in the games section in wtaworld, depending on where I will decide. If you’re ranking is not high enough to get directly into the main draw, you may have to play through the qualification draw.
After I create the draw, you will play the match with whoever I have drawn against you, and here is how matches work.
You have to divide 500 points into these sections:
You have to do that as often as you want, infact if you dont send in new points every week, I will use the points you sent in last week.
The amount of points you can send in can depend on various factors (such as contracts,sports equipment, ecc...), which will be comunicated in the course of the game.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
I will casually choose one of those factors, add the number of points that player has in that factor, and add it to the number of points that that player has on the surface the match is played on.
Player 1 vs player 2 on grass.
Groundstroke power gets selected.
Player 1 has 7 points in groundstroke power and 10 in grass. 7+10=17 points
Player 2 has 9 points in groundstrokes power and 3 in grass. 9+3=12 points.
So, player 1 wins the first game.
