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 ColumnIf 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).

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +2) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
June 20th 2022, h. 17:30 Canada :CAN 3   ITA.gif Italy

 

Scoring System: Basic number of points is 8

If you predict right winner for a match or a draw, you will get 8 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference or a draw) you will earn 8+7=15 points.

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

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +2) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
June 20th 2022, h. 17:30 Canada :CAN 3  

ITA.gif Italy

 

If Canada wins by 3, you will earn 15 points [8 pts for correct winner + 7 pts for point difference]

If Canada wins by 1, you will earn 13 points [8 pts for correct winner + 5 pts for point difference]

If Canada wins by 10, you will earn 8 points [8 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference]

If Italy wins by 1, you will earn 3 points [0 pts for correct winner + 3 pts for point difference]

If Italy wins by 4 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference]

 

 Top 3 Prediction points will be awarded as follow:

  • Correct Predicted 1st Place will be awarded 8 points
  • Correct Predicted 2nd Place will be awarded 6 points
  • Correct Predicted 3rd Place will be awarded 4 points
  • Corrected Predicted Nation in Top 3, but wrong place will be awarded 2 points

 

 

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: 3x15, 2x14, 2x13

Contestant 2: 3x15, 2x14, 1x13

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 and Top 3 Predictions.

 

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 Championships - June 20th, h. 18:00 (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.
