[TE4] Junior tour issues

Postby TimovieMan » 01 Jul 2021, 01:27

I've noticed some "issues" with the Junior tour when playing solo.

First of all: the points aren't calculated as in reality. They're calculated like in the Pro Tour: summing the best 18 results from the last 52 weeks.
In reality, Junior tour points are only the sum of the best 6 singles results and 1/4 of the best 6 doubles results.

In this screenshot, I've played 24 tournaments and have 1550 points (which is the sum of my 18 best results).
I should have 745 points instead, and be in the 10th spot instead of the 2nd, because 745 is the sum of my 6 best results. I don't play doubles, so there's no additional points from that.

A second issue is in the prize money calculations. They always show "0$" in the Junior tour, both for yourself and other Junior players.
Pro players have the accurate amount listed on the activity sheet.
The prize money summary on the right of the same screen however does show the exact amount, so it's probably just a display issue and certainly not a calculation issue.
See the red squares on the following screenshot:

A third issue is in the "Tournament limit", as seen on the right of the screen for upcoming tournaments:

I assume this means that junior players can only play 12 tournaments in the entire year?
In my current playthrough, however, I've played (at least) one tournament *every* week (doing qualifiers as well if allowed because of an early exit) and have thus shot way past that limit of 12. The game hasn't told me that I couldn't play anymore games this year. Is this an oversight, or is that tournament limit something else?

If it's an oversight, that would certainly explain why I've been able to max out all my stats already (according to the age-related skill cap), as I've been accruing far too many training points from all the matches I've played...

Hello,

1) Oops, I meant at some point to create a ranking especially for the Junior, but it totally escaped me. I'll try to do it in the next couple of months.

2) Actually, as a Junior, you can't earn money even from Pro tournaments, so showing 0$ is accurate. I fixed for the next update the total gain that should have been 0$ as well (but only for the future prizes)

3) Right now you can enter any tournament despite having already hit the limit, right ? Could you send me a Bug Report ? (HowTo => topic5-31732.php )

4) From your suggestion post : the booked tournament filter is for TEM2 ; it won't have a booking in TE4

Wow, that's unfair. Winning a big junior tournament and getting a wildcard for the main draw of a Pro tour Challenger tournament means the junior players miss out on the 1000$+ starting money???

3) Right now you can enter any tournament despite having already hit the limit, right ? Could you send me a Bug Report ? (HowTo => topic5-31732.php )
Done. Did it twice, once just before and just after entering a new tournament (with 0 left on the tournament limit).


Sounds like I'll be restarting a career. Because I'm OCD like that... :D

2) Yes, that's the motivation to turn pro in real life : make money from tournaments ; else as a Junior, it's only possible to make money from sponsors.

3) I got your report, I'll try to add the limit check today

Ok, it's done : for the next update, you'll get a pop-up when trying to join a tournament once you have reached the limit for the current year.

I also checked the Junior ranking and actually I had planned to cap to 6 the number of tournaments counting, but I hadn't finished, so now it's done for the next update (but the singles & doubles rankings are still separated).

And in bonus, I found out that the counted tournaments for the Junior ranking were not flagged as such in the Activity screen, so also I fixed that... :blackeye:

Hi Manu,

is it Normal that the Amount of Tournaments you can play as a youth Player rises?

In the first Season there were 12 Tournaments i can play in.

In the Second i can play in 15 Tournaments.

Guest,
yes ; IIRC, I just followed the real rule (with maybe some light adaptation :) ).
