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

Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
January 12th 2017, h. 17:45, Exponantes Hall XXL, Nantes Russia :RUS 2   :JPN Japan 
January 12th 2017, h. 20:45, Exponantes Hall XXL, Nantes Norway :NOR   0 :POL Poland  

 

Scoring system: Basic number of points is 7

If you predict right winner for a match, you will get 7 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference) you will earn 7+13=20 points.

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

 

 

Example A

Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
January 12th 2017, h. 17:45, Exponantes Hall XXL, Nantes Russia :RUS 2   :JPN Japan

 

If Russia wins by 5, you will earn 17 points [7 pts for correct winner + 10 pts for goal difference: (13-3)]

If Russia wins by 2, you will earn 20 points [7 pts for correct winner + 13 pts for goal difference]

If Russia wins by 16, you will earn 7 points [7 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (13-14) - no negative points]

If Japan wins by 1, you will earn 10 points [0 pts for correct winner + 10 pts for goal difference: (13-3)]

If Japan wins by 11 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (13-13)]

 

Example B

Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
January 12th 2017, h. 20:45, Exponantes Hall XXL, Nantes Norway :NOR   0 :POL Poland  

 

If the match ends in a draw, you will earn 20 points automatically.

If either team wins by 1, you will earn 12 points [0 pts for correct winner + 12 pts for goal difference: (13-1)]

If either team wins by 13 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 Round of 16, points will be multiplied by 1.25
  • In the Quarterfinals, points will be multiplied by 1.5
  • In the Semifinals, points will be multiplied by 2
  • In the Medal Matches, points will be multiplied by 2.5

 

 

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: 3x20, 2x19, 2x18, 2x17

Contestant 2: 3x20, 2x19, 2x18, 1x17

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 second match of the Tournament - January 12th, h. 14:00 (GMT +1).

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.
