Rules

 

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

To do that, you have to write in empty Cell a number - point difference for each match. If your prediction is that Nation 1 is going to win, you should type point difference in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Nation 2 is going to win, then type point difference in appropriate Cell of T2 Column. There cannot be 0 as point difference.

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +1) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
September 22nd 2018, h. 13:30 South Korea :KOR   17 :FRA France
September 22nd 2018, h. 17:30 Greece :GRE 2   :CAN Canada

 

 

Scoring System: Basic number of points is 20

If you predict right winner for a match or a draw, you will get 20 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference or a draw) you will earn 20+20=40 points.

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

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +1) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
September 22nd 2018, h. 13:30 South Korea :KOR   17 :FRA France
September 22nd 2018, h. 17:30 Greece :GRE 2   :CAN Canada

 

If France wins by 17, you will earn 40 points [20 pts for correct winner + 20 pts for point difference: (20-(17-17))]

If France wins by 10, you will earn 33 points [20 pts for correct winner + 13 pts for point difference: (20-(17-10))]

If France wins by 38, you will earn 20 points [20 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference: 20-(17-38) - no negative points]

If South Korea wins by 1, you will earn 2 points [0 pts for correct winner + 2 pts for point difference: (20-(17+1))]

If South Korea wins by 3 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference: (20-(17-20))]

 

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: 3x40, 2x39, 2x38, 2x37

Contestant 2: 3x40, 2x39, 2x38, 1x37

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 World Cup - September 22nd, h. 11:00 (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. 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, KOR-FRA 2 means the France beats South Korea by 2. KOR 2 FRA means nothing. And please, write your Totallympics username so the contest manager can know who actually sent 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:
