A wildcard request for version 1.0i

Postby Curtis » 26 Mar 2012, 07:57

I've just had the same thing happen to me in 1.0h that I complained about in 1.0g last year, so I'm going to try squeaking again in the hopes of getting some grease. :(

Emily was given a home nation wildcard into the doubles qualifying for an e21,000 Challenger in France. She and her partner qualified into the main draw, then won the tournament. THEN they received the news that their participation in the qualifying for a Futures tournament was cancelled because they had not yet lost in their current tournament! In fact, after the Challenger win her team's doubles ranking rose to better than that of the LD in the Futures tournament, which annoyed me even more. (Yes, I do remember you telling me that the draw is based on the previous week's rankings, not the current week's.)

The situation was the same in 1.0g with singles, but you've fixed that in 1.0h. I noticed that you've moved the Futures doubles qualifiers until after the Futures doubles finals, so Emily can win a Futures, then still have time to participate in qualis for the next one. It seems odd to me that winning a Futures does not disqualify her from the next Futures, but winning a Challenger does disqualify her. :thinking:

Of course I would prefer you to treat doubles the same way you do singles now (any singles player making it into the semi-finals of a tournament gets a wildcard into the main draw of the following week's Futures), but I would settle for you treating a Challenger victory in doubles the same way you do a Futures victory, and letting them play in the qualifier before the week changes.

Hello,

I forgot how it works, but maybe you were able to get in the next Future qualies coz it was the same tournament ..? (ie: Future Country 2 is always in the same place than Future Country 1 ; same for 4 & 3, etc...)

In many cases that WAS what happened, but I usually set up my teams to play doubles in four tournaments in a row. If nobody on the team got injured, they usually won all four. I've only noticed two places where you can play four Futures in the same country on consecutive weeks, so it doesn't seem likely that was the case every time.

I've moved past that point now, so I don't think I'll be able to check on that. Two of my girls are still playing Futures singles, but they're all up to Challengers in doubles. Even if you are correct, please treat doubles the same as singles for earning wildcards in future versions.
