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 +8) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
August 31st, 2019, h. 16:00 Poland :POL 17   :VEN Venezuela
August 31st, 2019, h. 20:00 Ivory Coast :CIV   2 :CHN China

 

 

Scoring System: Basic number of points is 30

If you predict right winner for a match or a draw, you will get 30 points regardless of the point difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct point difference or a draw) you will earn 30+20=50 points.

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

 

 

Example

 

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +8) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
August 31st, 2019, h. 16:00 Poland :POL 17   :VEN Venezuela
August 31st, 2019, h. 20:00 Ivory Coast :CIV   2 :CHN China

 

If Poland wins by 17, you will earn 50 points [30 pts for correct winner + 20 pts for point difference: (20-(17-17))]

If Poland wins by 10, you will earn 43 points [30 pts for correct winner + 13 pts for point difference: (20-(17-10))]

If Poland wins by 38, you will earn 30 points [30 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference: 20-(17-38) - no negative points]

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

If Venezuela 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: 3x50, 2x49, 2x48, 2x47

Contestant 2: 3x50, 2x49, 2x48, 1x47

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 - August 31st, h. 15:30 (GMT +8).

 

 

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.
