NEW GAME: Suicide Tennis
« on: January 28, 2013, 03:51:14 PM »
Hi guys, since we also introduced FITD (Fill In The Draw) I have been excited about bringing another game to this forum.
FITD had it's origin on MTF and Suicide Tennis is also a game that's been played at MTF.
I've been a #1 on both of these games, and everyone knows MTF has a lot of users so it's quite an accomplishment!
These games are really fun so I hope everyone will play them. This game just takes 10 seconds a day so it's definately do-able!


Here are the rules:

Suicide Tennis - Tournament Name


1. Each day of play you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. Of course, the player that you choose is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play).

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you don't want to waste your pick on Federer or Nadal to win in early round matches.

3. You must choose one player to win each day. If you forget, are sick, or are unable to reach a computer, it will be treated as a wrong pick, and you will be out of the tournament. You have to submit your own pick, no one else can submit your pick for you.

4. Only in the case of a walkover or a withdrawal of your main pick, each player is allowed to have a back-up pick, selected at the same time as their initial pick. That back-up pick will only be used in the occurrence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:
Back-Up Pick - Andy Roddick
Make it clear and try to do it all in one post!

5. No commitments are necessary! If you wish to participate, just post your Day 1 pick in the correct time. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play is released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD, right below, to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

NOTE: You can't pick a player from a match scheduled for the previous day and postponed for the next due to rain or darkness! Choose only from the matches posted in the OOP here for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be acceptable until before the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. Edited posts are not allowed, as this can fool the manager if he's already made a note of what was there originally. Changing your mind before the deadline is allowed, but then one should make a new post.

9. The scoring system will be as follows:

For example:
Day 1: Federer
Backup: Nadal

Just take a look at the game rules, you notice that it only takes 5 to 10 seconds a day to play this game!

Hopefully a lot of people will join this one and make it more fun. It's pretty challenging!

What do you guys think? We are going to start the first tournaments after the Australian Open.
We are only going to be able to play 1 out of [how many tournaments there are in that particulair week]. I'm the manager so I decide which tournament we are going to play. You can expect it to be the most important tournament of that week.

I'm also open for suggestions, so we can always vote for the tournament we are going to play.

Just a suggestion for an addition to the rules - edited posts are not allowed, as this can fool the manager if he's already made a note of what was there originally. Changing your mind before the deadline is allowed, but then one should make a new post.

Affirmative, Markus. It's been added.
What (as a co-manager) should you suggest we do if someone edits their pick anyway? Count it as a non-pick?

An edited pick should be a non-pick, yes, if we're consequent. But really it's up to the manager to use his discretion. If someone edits just 30 seconds after the original post then that's different from waiting 2 hours. Make out the rule as strong as you want it to be.

montpellier looks the strongest, vina is clay so maybe more challenging at start of the season

we probably are not going to be able to play the entire South American Swing because Rotterdam and Dubai always have really strong field.

starting in Vi˝a del Mar is better for variaty sakes right?

nah I just copy + pasted the game rules from MTF.
I have asked Scott for moderator status and an own Suicide Tennis section at the Game Section.

I don't think I can open up a new topic over there now, or else it's gonna end up in your FITD thread.

we have 6 days before the tournaments start so by then we should have an own section at the Game threads.
