World Cup Prediction League - Rules & General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Important stuff first...

  1. Make sure you enjoy this please. It's all for a bit of fun. No rattling, trolling, meltdowns allowed.

 

Now that's out the way, the other important stuff - the RULES/FORMAT.

5 points - A player will be awarded 5 points if he/she gets the result spot on. 

  • Example - Player X predicts Team A 3-1 Team B. Actual result is Team A 3-1 Team B

3 points - A player will be awarded 3 points if he/she gets the result correct AND goal-difference correct. 

  • Example - Player X predicts Team A 3-1 Team B. Actual result is Team A 4-2 Team B

2 point - A player will be awarded 2 points if he/she gets the result correct, but not the correct score or goal-difference

  • Example - Player X predicts Team A 3-1 Team B. Actual result is Team A 1-0 Team B

0 points - Players will be awarded no points if they get the result completely wrong.

  • Example - Player X predicts Team A 3-1 Team B. Actual result is Team A 1-2 Team B

 

***ALL GROUP STAGE Places have been filled. Anyone else who wants to participate will be included in the league format too***

Other discussion about the standings, group stages, knockout, eventual winner etc etc

Have fun!! :D

all group stage places have been filled. We have 8 groups of 4. 

League stage will continue throughout the entirety of the tournament.

Group stage will follow the format of the tournament i.e. top 2 go through from each group, and then enter a knockout format which will be presented later.

Quick question Stan:

It's one or two points, for the correct result, but the wrong goal difference?

You've put 2 points, but then you mention one point.

yep will try and get it done as soon as each round is done :). The table after the first round should be up in a few hours.

Good afternoon everyone
 

 @Rucksackfranzose, @nudge, @Dan
@Devon Von Devon, @LFCMike @YNWA, @Blue
@Tommy, @Eco, @Chaaay AFC, @Storts
@SirBalon @Bluewolf, @Kitchen Sales, @Batard
@The Palace Fan, @Viva la FCB, @Panna King, @...Dan
@Spike, @Toinho @Lucas, @RandoEFC
@ASF, @UNORTHODOX, @bozziovai, @Mel81x
@BartraPique1932, @Asura, @Marc, @Machado

 

REGULAR STANDINGS have been updated after Round 1 - Please click HERE to have a look at the table. 

Safe to say @Panna King has absolutely blown every one out of the water after the first round of fixtures, with a massive 36 points

Also, I think it's only fair to give some kudos to @Eco for one of the best predictions in the history of mankind - Portugal 3-3 Spain. Further shoutouts to @Panna King (again), @nudge, @Machado, @Dan and @Rucksackfranzose for also predicting unexpected results.

 

Group stage tables to follow soon...

Round Two is finished and the table is up - Click HERE to be magically transferred to view the standings

 

An absolutely sensational score by @Batard - anyone will do well to match that in the next round. Not only was it the highest score of the round and season so far, it was also the most perfect scores. Fabulous effort.
I had this reaction when counting his score

Of course there has to be shout-outs and commendation to @bozziovai and @LFCMike for their 40+ scores. Great effort lads.

Those 3 mentioned so far, as well as @Bluewolf, deserve further credit for the amount of perfect scores they got - Batard with his 6; LFCMike with his 5 and Bluewolf/Bozziovai with 4 each.

Bozziovai went from 26th to 2nd. Batard went from 18th to 1st. Goes to show that there can be a lot of movement in one week!

Well done all. Keep it up!

mate, I checked it about 5 times to make sure I hadn't counted up wrong. Every time I read through as the score stacked up I was genuinely saying 'what the fuck' to myself.
