FILL-IN-THE-DRAW 2013
BUCHAREST


Here's what you need to know:

1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week.

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) You may alter your draws when a someone withdraws. Please post your new picks in a new post OR*** PM the moderator of that tournament and state that you will change the draw due withdrawal. Additionally, when you change, please state in the "reason for change" box that someone withdrew. If not, you will be disqualified for editing. No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1 d. Qualifier 2" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.


8) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-Post just the last names of the winner.
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

How To Submit Your Picks


I would highly appreciate it if you could send in your picks following the rules below:

1. Please have "NO SPACES" between rounds of a draw (This way, I can simply copy and paste each entrant's picks all in one go)!

2. Please don't make spelling mistakes, there is no need to send seed numbers, player nicknames or country names! Only last names are required, thank you!

3. Please copy from the main draw posted in post #4 of this thread (This will ensure that the chances of making spelling mistakes are kept to an absolute minimum)

If your submitted picks do NOT follow all 3 of the above rules, then I will discard it, I don't have time to go chasing after people who can't follow 3 simple rules.


Please be cooperative by submitting your picks in the correct format, if I spend almost an hour copying and pasting everyone's picks, all I am asking is that each of you submit your picks following the three rules listed above, in most instances, it shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes to double check that your picks are submitted correctly. Thank you.

If you are still unsure of how to send in your picks, please have a look at the following example draws below, I have provided one example of a set of "acceptable" picks AND one example of a set of "unacceptable" picks:

This game really needs a rule change concerning this qualifiers. It's basically not nice IMHO to choose Qualifier 1 or 2. The rule should be changed as follows:

  • If a tournament starts off before qualifiers are finished, competitors are allowed to change their choices on the tournament's second day, before the second day starts, without changing their previous choices concerning the matches already played or that do not concern the qualified players. Also, any losing player that they chose for later rounds is forced to remain in their list upon the change made in the second day, unless they face off against the newly introduced qualifiers.
  • If a tournaments starts off after qualifiers are finished and set on the draw, competitors are not allowed to make changes to their picks after day one starts.

Interesting proposal, but here's my problem with it:
It kind of destroys the whole concept of posting once and then sitting back of FITD. Though, I can start a thread and have a poll if that's what you'd like?  :)

I think it is a good rule change if the organizer is prepared to do the extra work.

For the player, it is optional, so those wanting so sit back after the initial filling in can still do so.

This must be the most diverse picks we've had for tournament winner. Nobody got more than two votes.
