Rules

 

For this Prediction Contest you are predicting points difference for each match. Every match ends with a winner (there are no ties, draws).

To do that, you have to write in empty Cell a number - points difference for particular match. If your prediction is that Team 1 is going to win, you should type points difference in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win, then type points difference in appropriate Cell of T2 Column.

 

Examples

Women's Tournament - Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
August 6th 2016, h. 12:00, Youth Arena, Rio de Janeiro Turkey :TUR   5 :FRA France
August 6th 2016, h. 17:30, Youth Arena, Rio de Janeiro Brazil :BRA 3   :AUS Australia

 

Scoring system: Basic number of points is 10

If you predict right winner for a match, you will get 10 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference) you will earn 10+20=30 points.

Depending on difference between your prediction and actual result, earned points will differ.

 

 

Example

Women's Tournament - Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
August 6th 2016, h. 12:00, Youth Arena, Rio de Janeiro Turkey :TUR   5 :FRA France

 

If France wins by 10, you will earn 25 points [10 pts for correct winner + 15 pt for points difference: (20-5)]

If France wins by 5, you will earn 30 points [10 pts for correct winner + 20 pts for points difference]

If France wins by 30, you will earn 10 points [10 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for points difference: (20-25) - no negative points]

If Turkey wins by 1, you will earn 14 points [0 pts for correct winner + 14 pts for points difference: (20-6)]

If Turkey wins by 15 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for points difference: (20-20)]

 

In the Knockout Round, points will be multiplied by:

  • In the Quarterfinals, points will be multiplied by 1.25
  • In the Semifinals, points will be multiplied by 1.5
  • In the Medal Matches, points will be multiplied by 2

 

 

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: 3x30, 2x29, 2x28, 2x27

Contestant 2: 3x30, 2x29, 2x28, 1x27

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. 12:00 (GMT -3).

 

If you want to use Jolly in this Prediction Contest (which will double your Points for General Standings), Copy and Paste the following picture at the top of your Prediction Post

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.
