Season stamina

Postby swissmade » 25 Jul 2009, 15:54

Well, i thought, in world tour, the human players can join a tournament every week without any problem. Cpu players, like in real life, they skip some weeks for rest/preparation, and in this weeks they can't win ranking points.
In this way, the human player can move up quite easily in the rankings because he have no limit to play, and at the end of the season he will have played a lot of tournaments more than all other cpu players. So, what about an addition like "season stamina"?

Three ideas:

-We could establish a "tournament inscriptions limit", like 30 tournaments in a season, the number of the players who plays more than 30 tournaments in a year is really low. Obviously, the player can play more than 30 tours too, simply with a stamina decreasement. The more the players go out of this 30 tours limit, the more he will be tired.

-Establish a "matches played" limit, maybe more balanced for players who often lose in first rounds, with a mechanism similar to the previous tournament limit, just counting the number of the matches instead of the tournaments.

-Last option in my mind, give this penalty every week to the players (cpu or human) that reach a specific round in a tournament, just a bit for quarterfinals, medium for semifinals and max for finalists, and this penalty must vanish at the end of the next week. An example: i play a tour in week 1 and i made a semifinal, in week 2 i play another tournament and i start with a medium penalty - in this week 2 i reach quarterfinals, if i play a third tour in week 3 the stamina penalty of week 1 vanish, i will have "just" the penalty for the qf reached in week 2. Obviously if i completely rest an entire week, the player return fully healthy.

The penalty could affect just skills like physical (speed and stamina), precision shots skills, and net presence.

What do u think about it?

But the sistem only counts your best 18 weeks (4 GS, 9 MS and 5 tournaments). And I think there is a penalization: when a play a lot of weeks streak, I feel my player plays worse than when he takes rest...

2 things :
- as stated by Santiago92, only 18 results count in the past 52 weeks (and usually, the 13 GS & MS have to count, so it's only 5 secondary tournaments above of them)
- if you play every week and reach QF or above, you'll have very short time to train or even no time at all, so your skills will go down

I don't knew about it, sorry. But, from the 2nd season i noticed that the ranking points of the first 5/10 players seems a bit lower than in real tour, they played the same tournaments number?

I forgot to answer this one :

The number of Points for top players depends of their domination over the other players on the tour. In TE, it might be a bit more upsets and less domination, thus the points are more spread between the players...
