Hello WPT is starting over I'm sorry people who actually liked the game but I felt it wasnt much skill in sending points it was mainly luck so I decided to change it up a bit.

Heres the new format.

Choose 1, 2,3, or 4. WTA Players you would like to pick you can only have 1 top 20 player so everyone can have a chance a top player sorry.

You must send different points for each player sorry

1) You have 500 points to divide into 17 categories



Forehand Tecnique
Forehand Power
Forehand Consistency
Forehand Slice
Backhand Tecnique
Backhand Power
Backhand Consistency
Backhand Slice
Serve Spin
Serve Placement
Serve Power
Ball Toss
Serve Consistency
Speed
Volleys
Stamina
Mentality

In a match a computer program will randomly select one of these categories, and the play with more points in that category wins a game.

Pick one of these 4 surfaces this will be your favorite surface
Indoor, Clay, Hard, Grass


+7 on your favorite surface in each category





3) Decide which type of player you are:

Hard Hitter

Baseliner

AllAround

Serve and Volley

Hard Hitter will get +6 points in every category when they play indoor.

Baseliner will get +6 points in every category when they play on clay.

Allaround will get +2 points in every category when they play on any surface.

Serve and Volleyers will get +6 points in every category when they play on grass.

Schedule will be the same as WPT

Hmm Well Why Should I Join this game over the old format?
You can have 3 players instead of 2
This format requires more skill
You only have to send points once and you can play a full calendar season


and If you dont like this format I'll just continue the old one.

I will get Brisbane, Sydney and the AO done very quickly so we wont be far where we left off.

Thanks guys I hope you like this format better if not we'll go back to the old one.

New players can join!

Re: WPT ( Womens Professional Tour ) - New game

Yes sure SV_Fan

Ok example scenario Sharapova plays Henin in the first round of Roland Garros.

Roland Garros is played on clay.

Henin's surfaces are:
Clay:25
Hard:40
Plexicushion:10
Grass:15
Carpet/Indoor:10

Sharapova's surfaces are:
Clay:20
Hard:35
Grass:15
Indoor/Carpet:20
Plexicushion:10

Since the tournament is on clay Henin will have 400 + 25 pts to spend for clay since you start off with 400 to spend and she gets a bonus from her surface prefrence

same with Maria she will have 400 + 20

Ok so now this is an example on how both players would send points into six sets.

Henin- 60-70-80-50-90-75 = 425
Sharapova- 55-85-60-60-50-85 = 420

I would randomly pick one set to use by random.org
and use this scoring chart
Set game score: Singles
>70 The set is 6-0
61 - 70 The set is 6-1
50 - 60 The set is 6-2
35 - 49 The set is 6-3
19 - 34 The set is 6-4
10 - 18 The set is 7-5
9 - The set is 7-6 (0) (9-7)
8 - The set is 7-6 (1) (10-8)
7 - The set is 7-6 (2) (11-9)
6 - The set is 7-6 (3) (12-10)
5 - The set is 7-6 (4) (13-11)
4 - The set is 7-6 (5) (14-12)
3 - The set is 7-6 (6) (15-13
1-2 - The set is 7-6 (7) (16-14)
0 - We flip a coin and the score will be 7-6 (9) (or 18-16)

Randomly pick Set 3- Henin wins 1st set 80-60 6-4
Randomly pick Set 6- Sharapova wins 2nd set 85-75 7-5
Randomly pick Set 4- Jankovic wins 3rd set 60-40 6-4

Jankovic wins the match 4-6 7-5 6-4

I hope that was more clear

I think surface preferences will give some players an extra chance of winning. So try it with the preferences. If it's not what you thought you can always skip it in the next season.
