2022 The Greatest Loser: How it Works

#1

Post by dave g »

Do think your fantasy tennis teams could win YCWJ?
Do your category A picks manage to find ways to lose their first round matches?
Then this is the contest for you, where you get points if your players lose:
"The Greatest Loser"



It will consist of six weeks of ATP tournaments between now and the WTF (World Tour Finals).


Teams

Your team must consist of 12 ATP players from the top 100 men on the ATP Tour. Each player is categorized according to his ranking after the US Open. NO WILDCARDS. You must have three (3) players from each category. Your initial team may not be the same as a team that has already been posted, or it will be disqualified. We'll do our best to help monitor this. However, the responsibility of adhering to the requirements of this rule falls solely in the hands of the contest participant.

Player Categories:

CATEGORY A: Players 1-15.
CATEGORY B: Players 16-40.
CATEGORY C: Players 41-70.
CATEGORY D: Players 71-100.

Each player on your team will only be awarded points if they play. However, you will lose points for each match that they win. The team you choose is supposed to last you the entire contest, and you only get six trades!


Tournaments:

Week 1 9/26 Seoul, Tel Aviv, and Sofia (all 250 point tournaments)
Week 2 10/3 Tokyo and Nur-Sultan (both 500 point tournaments)
Week 3 10/10 Gijon, Florence (both 250 point tournaments
Week 4 10/17 Antwerp,Stockholm, Naples (all 250 point tournaments)
Week 5 10/24 Vienna, Bonn (both 500 point tournaments)
Week 6 10/31 Paris (1000 point tournament)


Scoring:

1000 point tournament 100/70/45/25/15/7/3
500 point tournaments 70/45/25/15/7/2
250 point tournaments 50/30/15/10/5/1

*I have not checked to see how many rounds each tournament has, so these scores may need to be modified.


Trades:


If you feel that any player on your team is dead weight (winning too many matches), injured, or you just don't want them on your team anymore, you are allowed to trade her for someone else whom you feel is more adequate to fulfill your team's job (lose, of course. )


You are allowed up to SIX trades during the six-tournament contest.


Trades should be made BEFORE the tournament starts. If your trades are not submitted by the tournament's trade deadline, that trade will not go into effect until the following week.

Remember: YOU MUST ALWAYS HAVE THREE (3) PLAYERS PER CATEGORY ON YOUR TEAM.

The responsibility of finding out who will be playing in which events rests solely on your shoulders. The team you have at the start of each tournament is the team you're playing with.

Should your team fall in the nether regions of a TAT lake, so to speak, or if you just want to complain or have a drink to drown your sorrows, feel free to do so in the Losers Lounge

Your team must be posted before the scheduled start of main draw play in Seoul, which begins Monday, Sept 26, 2022 local time, (which probably means Sunday, Sept 25 GMT and US times) .

As I screwed up this way last year:
You CANNOT use players ranked below 100, as the purpose of this contest is to pick losers.

Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of New York. So, if play starts at 10:00 a.m. Tokyo time, the deadline is 2:00 a.m. GMT, 9:00 p.m. Sunday US Eastern time, and 6:00 p.m. Sunday US pacific time.

Keep your eyes open, Omegadoom is likely to post an adjustment when he finds the correct starting tim.
