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 Nation 1 is going to win, you should type goal difference in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Nation 2 is going to win, then type goal difference in appropriate Cell of T2 Column. You must always pick a winning Nation (result AFTER Overtime/Penalties will count as final result).

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +2) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
May 4th 2018, h. 16:15 Russia :RUS 2   :FRA France
May 4th 2018, h. 20:15 Sweden :SWE   1 :BLR Belarus

 

 

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+5=12 points.

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

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +9) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
May 4th 2018, h. 16:15 Russia :RUS 2   :FRA France
May 4th 2018, h. 20:15 Sweden :SWE   1 :BLR Belarus

 

If Russia wins by 1, you will earn 11 ponts [7 pts for correct winner + 4 pts for goal difference: (5-1)]

If Russia wins by 2, you will earn 12 points [7 pts for correct winner + 5 pts for goal difference]

If Russia wins by 8, you will earn 7 points [7 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (5-6) - no negative points]

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

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

 

In the Knockout Round, points will be multiplied by:

  • In the Quarterfinals, points will be multiplied by 1.5
  • In the Semifinals, points will be multiplied by 1.75
  • 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: 3x12, 2x11, 2x10, 2x9

Contestant 2: 3x12, 2x11, 2x10, 1x9

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 - May 4th, h. 16:15 (GMT +2).

 

 

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 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 your predictions on e-mail: totallympics.predictions@gmail.com. Make sure your predictions are understandable. For instance, RUS-FRA 3 means Russia beats France by 3. RUS 2 FRA 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:
