    first, how can he know that the one he copies from has the right guess? and second, if he likes to cheat himself then it's hi's problem.

    Actually the problem is that at the end whoever is leading can just make similar predictions 2 the 2nd of the standings. By picking the same teams 2 win and by similar margins, there is no way that the latter can turn things around. At least at knock-out stages we shouldn't b able 2 watch what the rest r predicting.

    you can't see me my time is now...

    but don't forget that if the 2nd&1st prediction isn't good 3rd etc will pass em

    OK, then the leader can combine the predictions of his followers with his own estimations and maintain himself at the top. I'm sure all of us could think of a way if we had 2. Only if the 2nd and 3rd had very contradicting predictions could the leader get trapped in this strategy.

    There was a situation like this in the "first game season". The game hadn't perfect rules and tools, but the solution was like this. Medal candidates (about top8) sent thier predictions to me and I posted them all together.

    Now the game has more tools and i believe, at final stges of competiotion Billy can hide the predictions

    Don't worry, play the game

    just a minute... incoming ..

    EDIT:


    GameDay 3
    1 arturcia 20.96
    2 cartmaniac 20.67
    3 alyosha12 19.39
    4 aidas 18.96
    5 Gytaz 18.96

    Overall scores
    1 wyopeq 45.64
    2 maka 44.68
    3 Mindozas 34.25
    4 Panco 31.96
    5 robbe 30.85


    P.S. please, do not forget, that, after Billy's return he will enter the predictions of ppl, who somehow could'nt participate "on time" and made thier predictions earlier... This will change the odds and, of course, the scores... Though, I believe, not much


    P.P.S. I will repeat myself, that I'm not liking this odds based system. I don't feel the score. I don't know am I far or close to leader. Not much depends on exact score prediction - too much for wild shot...
    I hope this game-mode-test will fail...

    Hey I record 16.6777 in 1 games. I miss fiirst 2 days. I think Im the winner of this week, for more fairness, 1 th of the day must be given extra points.
    And In this competition, "how many matches I predict for having my point" must be written.
    long_term options
    *I like the possibility of EFES to reach f4
    *I hate Pao
    *don't want Greek loby in IBN
    *crazygreen is sympathetic interbasket citizen altough he is from greek loby.accepted Greek loby members:crazygreen,Fedfan,Mysh ArkadiosV2
    *turkish friends:wyopeq,ataman5, Levenspiel
    * protest İslamic goverment in Turkey because they force Efes PİLSEN to change its name, I drink more Efes beer after that against goverment.
    short term options
    *After Barac, Omic is silly player too .
