Rules

 

For this Prediction Contest you are predicting goal difference for each match. 

To do that, you have to write in empty Cell a number - goal difference for each match. If your prediction is that Team 1 is going to win, you should type goal difference in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win, then type goal difference in appropriate Cell of T2 Column. If your prediction is that the match will end in a draw, then type a 0 in either T1 or T2 Cell (or in both, if you wish). For Knockout Round matches you must always pick a winning Nation (result AFTER Overtime/Penalties will count as final result).

 

 

Examples

Men's Tournament - Group B

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
August 6th 2016, h. 10:00, Olympic Hockey Center, Rio de Janeiro Argentina :ARG 2   :NED Netherlands 
August 6th 2016, h. 11:00, Olympic Hockey Center, Rio de Janeiro India :IND   0 :IRL Ireland  

 

Scoring system: Basic number of points is 5

If you predict right winner for a match, you will get 5 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference) you will earn 5+5=10 points.

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

 

 

Example A

Men's Tournament - Group B

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
August 6th 2016, h. 10:00, Olympic Hockey Center, Rio de Janeiro Argentina :ARG 2   :NED Netherlands 

 

If Argentina wins by 1, you will earn 9 points [5 pts for correct winner + 4 pt for goal difference: (5-1)]

If Argentina wins by 2, you will earn 10 points [5 pts for correct winner + 5 pts for goal difference]

If Argentina wins by 8, you will earn 5 points [5 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (5-6) - no negative points]

If Netherlands wins by 1, you will earn 2 points [0 pts for correct winner + 2 pts for goal difference: (5-3)]

If Netherlands wins by 3 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (5-5)]

 

Example B

Men's Tournament - Group B

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
August 6th 2016, h. 11:00, Olympic Hockey Center, Rio de Janeiro India :IND 0   :IRL Ireland  

 

If the match ends in a draw, you will earn 10 points automatically.

If either team wins by 1, you will earn 4 points [0 pts for correct winner + 4 pts for goal difference: (5-1)]

If either team wins by 5 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference]

 

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: 3x10, 2x9, 2x8, 2x7

Contestant 2: 3x10, 2x9, 2x8, 1x7

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. 10:00 (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
