    Re: Ask Questions Here About The Suicide Pool

    If I make it to the quarterfinals in the woman's suicide pool, I was wondering if we had to make 2 picks for the quarters (1 each day) or if all the quarters are played on one day which would mean we would only have to make 1 pidk for the quarterfinals???


    Thanks

    And yes, regardless of when the semis are played, you need only make one pick. Otherwise, there'd be no way to beat the draw!
    I think beau's previous post answers your question.

    If you mean that should you make it to the final, and it is obvious who your choice is because of previous picks, the answer is we expect you to make it official by making your choice in the thread for the final.

    Re: Ask Questions Here About The Suicide Pool

    To the awesome TAT staff ... I'm wondering about how points are calculated. Is there a set number of points awarded for each day I survive, or is the number of points awarded based on how many people are still in at the time that I get booted?

    Thanks

    Awww Kerri. You're flattering us. Now I feel bad answering your question.

    After some discussion, we've decided to suspend the ranking for the current time. It's a huge amount of work calculating them, and with the increase in players (now that we are near 400) it's sapping our resources. And in deciding how we wanted to best focus our staff's energy and time going forward, we wanted to put more effort into things like content, and tournament coverage, and (contest wise) our fantasy tennis events.

    Hope you'll forgive us. And keep saying nice things about us as well

    Re: Ask Questions Here About The Suicide Pool

    Oh my goodness ... I'm heartbroken

    I guess there are two ways to look at it ...

    1. I can't improve on my top five ranking on the women's side ...

    2. I go out in the top five on the women's side ...

    I think I'll go with the latter!

    We'll always have nice to things say about the TAT staff ... you've made tennis way more fun (and stressful)

    That was the goal all along. So nice to hear someone thinks our mission has been accomplished.

    Great move as the only thing should come out of this should be medals for the winner(s)

    I take back my positive attitude about this ... with my win today I'm pretty sure I would have taken over the lead with a whopping 351 points ...
