Hello and welcome to this introductory thread of our first official WTAworld.com Fantasy Tour tournament! This tournament will be similar to the ones played on the Sanex board though some changes were introduced to try to revive these tournaments.

For those who aren’t familiar with these tournaments, I’ll explain it briefly. Basically you just sign up in this thread by saying you want to enter and you start looking for a partner. Yes, a partner, because the WFT is played with double teams. Of course it would be nice if you find a nice and appropriate name for your team. If you can’t find a partner I’ll put you with some other player without friends. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

The goal of the tournament is to answer more questions correctly than your opponents. If you win your match you will proceed to the next round and so on until we have a winner. Yes, just like a real draw lmao.

Because this tournament is played in Belgium the questions will mostly be related to my beloved country. History, music, sports,… it’ll all be there.

Questions can be asked in here, but don’t worry more information about the rules will follow.

I will try to explain the rules in this post. If it isn’t clear you can always ask more details.

First of all, there will be no seedings as this is the first tournament of the WTAworld.com Fantasy Tour. I will make a draw by pulling the team names out of my beloved hat. For this you’ll have to count on my honesty. I will post the draw when the tournament will start. Depending on the number of participating teams, some of them might get a bye in the early rounds.

When your match is due, I’ll post six questions on the board and you’ll have to answer them in approx. 24 hours. You’ll send me your answers by email and will not post them on the board because there will be only one set of questions for each match. Both teams will have the same questions so there will be no discussion that one team would have had easier questions.

If there’s a tie, a tiebreaker (yes, that sounds logic) will decide who will win the set or most often the match. The tiebreaker will not be about answering questions like during the rest of the game. You’ll get a creative task and will have to post your answer or solution to it on the board or send it to me by email, depending on the kind of task. It’s still kinda blurry, I understand, but for the tiebreaker you will have to be creative – though bribing me can give you a push in the good direction.

Yes, you can always try to bribe me. But if I feel you’re doing it all mushy wushy, don’t count on getting extra points! I’m a tough judge… but terribly unfair <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> .

Again you can always ask more information and in the next post I’ll tell you more about how the scoring will proceed.

The Scoring Post

This will be kinda hard to explain, but I’ll try my best and will give an example that should clear things up.

Every team gets six questions and you’ll have to send me your answers – as a team, so only one set of answers for your team – in one email containing your team’s name and your team’s answers, and if you want some bribing tactics lol.

The team who sends in their answers first will start “serving”. I will start with their first answer and if that’s correct they hold serve and win one point. But if their answer is wrong, the point goes to the opposite team. Then I’ll check the answer of the opposite team and proceed the same. I’ll give an example to clear things up lol, because I see you guys shaking your heads.

Example:<br />Team One: correct on question 1, correct on q2, correct on q3, wrong on q4, correct on q5 correct on q6<br />Team Two: correct on question 1, wrong on q2, correct on q3, correct on q4, wrong on q5, wrong on q6

Team One send me their answers first and I’ll start with their answer to question one.<br />Team One gets a point cos their answer to question one is correct: 1-0*<br />Team Two gets a point cos their answer to question one is correct: *1-1<br />Team One gets a point cos their answer to question two is correct: 2-1*<br />Team One “breaks serve” of Team Two cos their answer was wrong: *3-1<br />Team One gets a point cos their answer to question three is correct: 4-1*<br />Team Two gets a point cos their answer to question three is correct: *4-2<br />Team Two “breaks serve” of Team One cos their answer was wrong: 4-3*<br />Team Two gets a point cos their answer to question four is correct: *4-4<br />Team One gets a point cos their answer to question five is correct: 5-4*<br />Team One “breaks serve” of Team Two cos their answer was wrong: 6-4

And Team One wins the match with 6-4. As you see, it’s more important to score well on the earlier questions, because it might be possible the last question is futile.

I will post live scoring like this for each match to let you know how well you did. As you read in my earlier post, a tiebreaker might have to decide on the outcome of a match.

Feel free to ask questions if you need clarification. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
