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. In case you think the match is going to end with a tie (draw), type 0 in any of the corresponding Cells. There cannot be 0 as point difference in the Semfinals and Medal Matches, and result after overtime/penalties will be counted as final result.

 

 

Example

Group A

 

Date & Time (GMT +1) Nation 1 T1 T2 Nation 2
December 4th 2020, h. 18:15 France :FRA  8   :MNE Montenegro

 

 

Scoring System: Basic number of points is 10

If you predict right winner for a match or a draw, you will get 10 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference or a draw) you will earn 10+10 = 20 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
December 4th 2020, h. 18:15 France :FRA  8   :MNE Montenegro

 

If France wins by 8, you will earn 20 points [10 pts for correct winner + 10 pts for point difference: (10-(8-8))]

If France wins by 3, you will earn 15 points [10 pts for correct winner + 5 pts for point difference: (10-(8-3))]

If France wins by 19, you will earn 10 points [10 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference: 10-(8-19) - no negative points]

If Montenegro wins by 1, you will earn 1 point [0 pts for correct winner + 1 pts for point difference: (10-(8+1))]

If Montenegro wins by 2 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for point difference: (10-(8+4))]

 

 Top 3 Prediction points will be awarded as follow:

  • Correct Predicted 1st Place will be awarded 10 points
  • Correct Predicted 2nd Place will be awarded 7,5 points
  • Correct Predicted 3rd Place will be awarded 5 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: 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 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 Championship - December 3rd, h. 18:00 (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.
