Rules

 

For this Prediction Contest you are predicting the result in sets (win of either team) for each match.

To do that, you have to write in the empty Cells the number of Sets each team will win in that particular match. Possible outcomes are 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2.

If your prediction is that Team 1 is going to win, you should type number "3" in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win a set or two or will end the match without winning a set, then type the number "1" or "2" or "0" in appropriate Cell of T2 Column. Do the opposite if your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win.

You either win a bonus of 1 or 3 points.

- Bonuses won't be awarded if any of the scheduled matches for the particular day is not played (for whatever reason). No bonuses for Knockout Round.

TB Rules

If two or more contestants have the same number of points at the end, Tie-Break rule will be applied to break the tie.

Number or perfect predictions throughout the contest will be compared for the involved contestants. If they are still tied, number of second best scores will be compared, then number of third best results and so on.

 

Example

Contestant 1: 6x4, 6x4, 2x4, 2x4

Contestant 2: 6x4, 6x4, 2x4, 1x4

Contestant 1 will be placed ahead of Contestant 2.

 

Contestant with most points wins the competition.

 

The Ranking is determined by the Sum of Points the Contestant scores in all predicted Matches.

 

You can enter the Contest whenever you want. The moment you post your predictions is the moment when you are entering the Contest and your points will be calculated for all the matches you predicted AND which haven't started. 

In order to earn points from the start, you should post your predictions before the start of the first match of the Tournament - August 6th, h. 09:30 (GMT -3).

You can add Jolly in your Post until the start of the first Match of the Prediction Contest. You can't remove a Jolly you have submitted after the start of the first Match of the Prediction Contest.

 

You can EDIT your predictions whenever you want until the start of the first match of the Prediction Design Post. Once competition starts, you are not allowed to edit your post and any further changes will be ignored. On contestant's request, edited predictions will be accepted, but contestant will earn 0 points for finished matches and the matches that have started. Moment at the latest editing will be considered as the entry moment, in other words. 

 

If you want to comment on this Prediction Contest, please use Prediction Contests - Discussion Thread 2016 only.

 

If you have problem with the format, you can post your predictions in simplified format. Also, if the forum is down, or you cannot access the forum for any reason, you can send you predictions on e-mail: totallympics.predictions@gmail.com. Make sure your predictions are understandable. For instance, JPN 3 1 KOR or JPN 3 KOR 1 means Japan beats South Korea by 3-1. JPN 2 KOR means nothing. And please, write your Totallympics username so the contest manager can know who actually sent predictions.

 

Every contestant MUST HIDE own predictions. To do that, you have only to delete the space between the bracket "[" and the text "hide" in "[ hide]" at the beginning of prediction post. Do the same with "[ /hide]" at the end of prediction post too. The hidden content will appear to other users as follows:
