Thread: IBN 2014 World Cup Prediction Game

  1. #1

    Default IBN 2014 World Cup Prediction Game

    Since no one has started a prediction game thread, I am volunteering to run the game this year. If someone else was planning on doing this, I will gladly step aside. Just let me know.

    IBN World Cup Prediction Game: The Rules
    Submit your predictions each game day to this thread. I will publish the results at the end of each game day (as well as cumulative results as the tournament progresses). Please indicate your national affiliation (or, if you prefer, the nation you are rooting for in the WC) in your first post. I will publish country standings alongside individual standings.

    Please enter the results in the following format:
    CRO-PHI
    If you think Croatia will beat the Philippines by 12 points, enter in:
    CRO-PHI 12
    If you think the Philippines will beat Croatia by 31 points, enter in:
    CRO-PHI -31

    The game's points are calculated as follows:
    * if your prediction of the winning team is correct = 3 pts.
    * if you predict the exact point difference of the final score you get 5 extra pts (3+5 = 8 pts)
    * your point difference prediction is off by 1, you get 3 extra pts (3+3 = 6 pts)
    * your point difference prediction is off by 2 = 2 extra (3+2 = 5 pts)
    * your point difference is off by 3 = 1 extra (3+1 = 4 pts)
    * your prediction of the winning team is incorrect = minus 2 pts

    Please note that if you do not predict the winning team correctly, you are not eligible to receive any of the extra points. (e.g. CRO beats PHI by 2, you predicted -1, you do not get an extra point for being 3 away from the actual score because you did not predict that CRO would win the game).

    Good luck everyone!

    "And then comes Panathinaikos and their young center, Pekovic. He hit me once and it was like getting hit by a train.
    He's a big boy. I said to him, "How much you weigh?" and he said, "Too much".

    And he was right."
