Thread: World Cup 2019 Prediction Game

  1. #1

    Default World Cup 2019 Prediction Game

    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). The classification matches for positions 17-32 (Sep. 6-9) will not be included in this game.

    Please enter the results in the following format:
    ANG-SRB
    If you think Angola will beat Serbia by 12 points, enter in:
    ANG-SRB 12
    If you think Serbia will beat Angola by 31 points, enter in:
    ANG-SRB -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. ANG beats SRB 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 ANG would win the game).

    Good luck everyone!

    Yes, posting with all caps is not allowed on IBN, so you have to add a little text to your message in order for the IOC codes to be in all caps. But even if they aren't, that's OK.
