[PREDICTION CONTESTS] Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I only voted for the events I would like to see added (which makes sense, I guess) and not for 'all events', because the top-3/4 of the poll gets added so voting for everything is exactly the same as voting for nothing :p

Either a bracket like in tennis or the format of the knock-out stage of stuff like football, water polo etc (not with set difference but with the full score, since the options for the score are limited to the max number of won sets anyway).

Not really. 2 group stage matches still carry much more value than 1 semifinal match. And there are 48 group matches compared to 2 semifinals...

 

Prediction contests should be exciting, and yes, it is more exciting when you have something to lose (or gain), instead of having medals/top 10s decided way before the final stages of the tournament.

When World Cup finishes, I'll post standings with points calculated without multiplications for QF, SF and finals, and will post some statistics to see how much multiplication actually affects scores and someone's chances to win a medal.

 

As of now, here's the table of current top 10:

 

Rank w/out multipl. User PTS Official Rank
1 amen09 141 1
2 crovitlaci 136 2
3 Vojthas 135 3
4 ady48 132 4
4 chrischi08 132 5
4 thepharoah 132 8
7 Jahiegel 131 6
8 Agger 129 9
8 Dolby 129 7
8 Henry_Leon 129 9

 

We can see that thepharoah's ranking is a bit affected. But - he is 4.25 points away from third place in official ranking and he would be 3 points away from third place in case without multiplication. Next match is a semifinal between Croatia and England and we can agree that match is quite see-saw on paper. If thephaorah get's 3 pts for that match and Vojthas gets none, than the TB rule would be applied o determine third place. With multiplication, thephaorah would win 4.5 points and will be 0.25 points ahead of Vojthas. 

That is why I will post a poll at the end of the year and we will vote whether to keep multiplication or not. There are always pros and cons, and I hope we will come to final agreement.
