World Cup 2014 Prediction Game

Postby AvatarX » Tue Jun 10, 2014 11:20 am

Hello everyone!

As expected, prediction game for World Cup 2014 is up and running and waiting for your predictions:

http://www.bayernforum.com/blog/world-cup-2014-prediction-game

You can use the following spreadsheet to help you with your predictions:
http://www.bayernforum.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/World_Cup_2014.xlsx

Game Points

Points for correct score 3 (For example predict 3-0 and the result is 3-0 award 3 points)
Points for guessing a draw 3 (For example predict 2-2 and the result is 1-1 award 3 points)
Wrong score but predicted a win 2 (For example predict 1-0 and the result is 2-0 award 2 points)

Points above are not cumulative, for example predict 2-2 and the result is 2-2, you gain 3 points, NOT 4 points

Bonus points
Points for correct number of goals 1 (For example predict 3-0 and the result is 3-1 award extra 1 points)
Points for correct goal difference 1 (For example predict 5-3 and the result is 3-1 award extra 1 points)

Bonus points are cumulative.

The prediction is for the final score, not only 90 minutes. So, if for example the CL final vs Barca ends 2-2, goes to extra time (no goals) and penalties (5-4 in our favor) the correct prediction would be Bayern - Barca 7-6. Same goes for Cup games, or knockout rounds of CL. It is more difficult to predict the final score, but I am pretty sure that even then someone may have predict it right.

Also in case of a tie breaker between players, the one with the most absolute correct predictions (6 points) wins it.

Next prediction deadline in 02d, 09h, 58m, 19s ....

Great idea. Thanks for posting this. I was thinking of joining in for a World Cup prediction game somewhere, and what better place than on Bayern Forum.

Could I ask a few newbie questions? Do we just predict for the group stage now, and then for each of the knockout rounds later? How do I submit the predictions?

We can update predictions after the tournament starts, right?

For now I just put in a prediction for all group games. I just copied the same prediction I made for a bet with friends. For our bet we cannot change results though, so I'd likely be changing them as the tournament progresses.

Just hit save after entering one (or all) prediction. You can enter all the predictions now or just enter each one before the game starts.

Also you can edit your prediction before the game starts.

Use the spreadsheet beforehand. It is very useful.

There is a separate save button for every group. ;)
