Maybe this has already been answered, but anyway : why play singles at all in this already very time-consuming format ?

- Lucullupus (and I bet others did before him) advised to have a random start for the first single and order the other singles such that each player has exactly one start. I agree with him - this part of luck can and should be taken out.


I agree as well - rules have become a bit antique now after the imense change by DoW - I think we should (and will) add this in the rules for next years event (if there is one Smile)


Quote:

- The rule in case of a double start is unfair. A restart should be automatic to give both teams equal chances. Now the non-double-starting team has an advantage: either restart (equal chances) or a start with favourable tickets (better chances). He who thinks playing against a double start is always disadvantageous: that is exactly the way we earned our only victory against Truck/Zimo.


It is always a disadvantage to play against a double start - especially on the EU map. I feel it a little different on the US map, where it might work to win against a double start (with a hand full of lokos to begin with or nice tickets etc ...) but even there - I think it is always better to restart. I would not mind to change rules here as well ...

Quote:

- I think giving 1.5 points for a tag would bring some interest in the singles - the only way to turn a result in the singles now is to win them all. As a bonus, a draw becomes impossible since there are only 8.5 points at stake.


interesting idea - the main reason for giving 2 pts per taggame was to make it impossible to win a match just by the singles. That would be covered by 1,5 per TAG too, indeed increasing the value of the singles. Changing this in the rules would be ok for me.


Quote:

- There should be one easy to find spot where all current rules regarding Fe(u)d are shown, preferably Tickipedia.


Indeed - hope I can do that some time.

Thanks for playing this tournament, Jac&Bas - and I hope you still had a little bit of fun - and maybee with the experience you gained now we`ll see you next year maybee in FED Cup ?

@ Kolmo: the singles derived from the idea to have a two player tournament a bit similar as they play in tennis (singles/double) - thats also the reason for calling it "FED" Cup Cool
Nothing really important - just the way it developed a few years ago .... and I think uit worked out well.

Mas,

Tennis was my model exactly : one can enter the doubles without having to play the singles. We Canadians have lots of good players in double, btw B-)

If I had only to play doubles, I would consider playing. As of now, it's way too long.

The Tag games remain the most important games in TAG tourneys, it sounds logical that a team wins a clash by winning the Tags.

A case : a team won 3 singles and a tag = 4,5 / opponent 2 tags & 1 single = 4...
The tags wins are not rewarded.

With the current tules , it'd be a tie 5-5. Sounds more logical to me: one team wins the singles clash, and the other the tag clash = tie...

KEEP FAVORING TAGS IN TAGS TOURNEYS !!

The best way to favor tags would be to have only tag games... B-)

bas asked about rules on ticki


There should be one easy to find spot where all current rules regarding Fe(u)d are shown, preferably Tickipedia. Maybe I am just stupid but I did not find a complete overview anywhere.



Take a look at the FED-CUP-HOMEPAGE and the FEUD-CUP-HOMEPAGE !

Womble/Masimo - Zimo/Truck 5-5

Womble pulled a tripple station block on me in the last TAG, whilst depleting my karma to 75.

The singles were all decided on luck, as these things go in Europe.

I've been patient, but now this is ridicilous. Almost 2 months ago Me and Trucker managed to finals. Now there is still other semifinal not played, even the final should have been played long time ago. What happened to all deadlines and rule?? Why there are not any news or apologizes? I planned to play this tournament before september and now its almost October! There is NC going on and everyone has forgotten this totally.

I have no idea how much time I have during next weeks, and I certainly will not cancel anything for this after all this. (If we even get any playing time suggestion before next year)

Amazingly, we managed to win that ...... Shocked Shocked Shocked

Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

first game was a clear win for Zimo vs womble, I managed to tie Truckerteller thereafter, so 1,5-0,5 for Zimo/Truckerteller after the first two singles.

The first TAG was a clear dominant game by Truckerteller/Zimo - nothing to do for us, but thereafter we managed to win the next two TAGs, making it 4,5 - 3,5 in our favour.

The singles had to decide ..... womble lost to Truckerteller .... 4,5 - 4,5 CLOOOOOSE ! - The last game had to decide ... suspension high ...
well I was lucky to win that ... and thus womble and me won the fEUd-cup 5,5 - 4,5

Thanks Zimo - Truckerteller for a thrilling final.



Eva and I dedicate our victory to Marie
