Time is come to decide system for the next 2 (or 1) season in tennis elbow.
Please read this whole post before voting, and/or see discussion topic here: topic13-1761.phpFirst option - 6 months based season (2 season per year)
Is based on facts.
We have barely 30 active players at one moment.
Small tournaments in older system would be mostly useless. (any changes there in old system will lead to this 6 months idea)
New players will have more chances to achieve some things quicker because of 2 seasons per year
Biggest flaw of this system for some users is not following real ATP calendar and lower number of smaller tournaments
In 6 months season there would be:
4 Grands slams (each one will last 10 days)
8 Masters (+ final masters cup) - or whatever will be called in next season
12 small tournaments with possibly of 24 small tournaments - two tournaments per week based (it depends about number of players that will be active at particular time)
-> 6 of them (small tournaments) will be counted for rankings
-> Each player is only allowed to play on 9 small tournaments
example of potential calendar you can see here: [img=http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/4596/calendarnewonekj1.th.png]
(its not final one)Second option - 11 months season (following ATP)
Well, most of us know that system very well so it doesn't need lots of describing. If chosen there will be some changes regarding small tournaments. (bigger number of small tournaments will be counted than in RL)
It will follow real ATP calendar.
New players will have more chances to show themselves on small tournaments, but not to have chances to achieve something that soon.
Biggest flaw of this system for some users is that is too long (because of number of small players that are active), not dynamic and possibility of some players not playing till the end of the season (like it happened in this years tournaments)VotingEvery player that cast a vote must post a comment with nickname included for what he voted for
