WIFCT - New Rules

The Game

WIFCT will now have a normal tournament season, each week features 2 or more tournaments. There is the tournament representing Wrold Group I, World Group II (will be played through final, not just R1), and 1 for each Zonal group required. Here is the schedule:

Schedule

Season 1 Only: Grand Playoff
Week 1: Australian Open : Sydney --- Zonals: Hobart,Gold Coast,Auckland,Adelaide
Week 2: Tokyo(PPO) : Antwerp --- Zonals: Paris,Pattaya City,Bangalore,Midland
Week 3: Miami : Indian Wells --- Zonals: Dubai,Doha,Memphis,Las Vegas
Week 4: Charleston : Amelia Island --- Zonals: Budapest,Estoril,Prague,Warsaw
Week 5: Roland Garros : Rome --- Zonals: Berlin,Istanbul,Strasbourg,Fes
Week 6: Wimbledon : Eastbourne --- Zonals: Birmingham,Ordina Open,London,Newport
Week 7: San Diego : Los Angeles --- Zonals: Cincinnati,Stockholm,D.C.,Indianapolis
Week 8: USOpen : Montreal --- Zonals: Toronto,New Haven,Bali,Forest Hills
Week 9: Luxembourg : Beijing --- Zonals: Kolkata,Portoroz,Guangzhou,Seoul
Week 10: Zurich : Moscow --- Zonals: Stuttgart,Linz,Bangkok,Tokyo(AIG)
Week 11: Top 16 play SEC --- Next 16 play Quebec City --- Others play Tashkent

(if we need more "zonals" I'll find more ITFs or just use a major city)

Picking a Player

Because of the need for several groups, all coaches are allowed to coach 2 players, only one of which can be on this list (commoly used players)

Jankovic
Ivanovic
Mauresmo
S.Williams
Hantuchova
Hingis
Dementieva
V.Williams
Vaidisova
Golovin
Davenport

(basically this is to avoid 1 person getting both WS or both Serbs or w/e you know)

How a Week Goes Down

At the beginning of the week you will either be in the top tier, second tier, or a "zonal" tier.
Part A of the week is first round of top tier, first round of second tier, and RR "zonal" tiers.
Part B is SFs of top tiers
Part C is Finals of top tiers
Part D is Playoffs (not a complete tournaments)

You move up through the draws based like FedCup so if you are the second tier 1R winner you get to play in the playoffs for 1st tier, against a R1 loser of 1st tier.

Points System

You always use 80 points into 3 sets i.e. 30-30-20
Surface Preferences: Hardcourter or Variety Player 95 on hard or clay/grass/indoors

The Grand Playoff

Every player will send points and we will have a gigantic RR, you will play every single other player, the top 8 records start in tier I, the next 8 in second tier, the rest in zonals (4 per zonal)

Rankings

Points

Top Tier
W: 500
F: 300
SF: 200
1R Loss: 0

1st Tier Playoffs
W: 50
L: 0

Second Tier
W: 275
F: 175
SF: 125
1R Loss: 0

2nd Tier Playoffs
W: 25
L: 0

Zonals (I)
1st Place(adv to POs): 100
2nd Place: 50
3rd Place: 25
Last(possibly relegate): 10

If more than 4 Zonals
Zonals II
1st Place (adv to Zonal I): 50
2nd Place: 25
3rd&Last: 10

Re: So...about this game...its changing completely Re-Sign-Up Here

I like this new format but I just two questions - Say Week 2 you are in the top tournament but you have a really bad week would you be relegated from the top tournament?
and can your players be in two different tournaments based on how they are doing?


I would like to join as Dementieva but I am not sure who else yet ;)

If you have a really bad week and lose your 1R in the top tier, you will play in the 1st tier POs, against a 1R winner of second tier. So hypothetically the worst you can fall in this game in one week is 1st tier to second tier. OR if you start in second tier to zonals.

Your players can be in different tournaments yes.

Re: So...about this game...its changing completely Re-Sign-Up Here

Confusing. I would also much prefer some kind of surface preference. Maybe even just picking one favourite. But it sounds good and I really, really enjoyed the previous game so I will sign up:

Mauresmo
Kuznetsova

I was working with some idea of surface preference... weeks 1-3,7-8 were hardcourt players 4-6,9-10 were "variety" players. We can look into in the upcoming days.
