We’re excited to be bringing Tennis to SuperBru, and we’re busy preparing to launch the first big tournament in time for Wimbledon at the end of June!
We’ve devised a prediction and scoring model using our Fantasy Lite concept of picking from bands of players – the current plan is to pick 2 men and 2 women, and you’ll score points for games and sets won, as well as performance measures like Aces and 1st serve percentage.
We’ll then divide the tournament into rounds, so that you make picks three times over the two-week Grand Slam events – you’ll pick players for Round 1 & 2 together, again for Rounds 3 & 4, and finally for the Quarter-finals onwards.
We’ll see how Wimbledon goes as the first major tournament, but the plan is to make it like our Golf games – standalone tournaments, but with the function to enter your pool in all of them at once, with a special leaderboard that tracks performance from one tournament to the next (this is still in the pipeline for Golf by the way).
French Open – Closed Beta
We are using the proposed format for a closed beta test for the French Open, which starts next week. We usually do this in the office before we launch fully on SuperBru, but we are opening it up to The General’s Club members so that we can test it properly and solicit some more feedback – we plan to do this with other new features and tournaments going forwards.
Past Global Champions, Brus with over 15,000 caps and anyone with a Gold membership subscription are invited to join The General’s Club – click here to join if you’d like to help with the Beta test.
