PostSubject: World Cup 2018 Score Predictor   Wed Jun 06, 2018 8:57 pm



This is open to anyone who wants to play


The game is very simple, all you have to do is predict the scores in the upcoming World Cup football matches. There will be 64 games in total, 48 in the group stages and 16 in the knockout stages. The player with the highest total at the end will be declared the Ultimate Predictor and Champion.

Of course, we're not gonna try or even ask the players to predict all the group games at once. It will be broken down as evenly as possible, like this:

Round 1
8 games  : 14th-16th June

Round 2
6 games  : 17th-18th June

Round 3
6 Games  : 19th-20th June

Round 4
6 Games  : 21st-22nd June

Round 5
6 Games  : 23rd-24th June

Round 6
8 Games  : 25th-26th June

Round 7  
8 Games  : 27th-28th June

Round 8 (Last 16 Knockout stage)
8 Games : 30th June - 3rd July

Round 9  (Quarter Finals)
4 Games  : 6th-7th July

Round 10 (Semi-finals)
2 Games :  10th-11th July

Round 11 (3rd place play-off and Final)
2 Games  : 14th-15th July


Scoring

The scoring system will be the one used by the score predictor I play during the regular football season, and it goes  like this, with examples:

Correct score : +30 points
Scotland 1-2 Malta (prediction) -   Scotland 1-2 Malta (result)
       
Correct draw prediction but wrong result : +20 points
Scotland 1-1 Malta (prediction)  -  Scotland 3-3 Malta (result)

Correct win result and goal difference : +15 points
Scotland 2-0 Malta (prediction)  -  Scotland 3-1 Malta (result)

Correct win result : +10 points
Scotland 4-1 Malta (prediction)   -  Scotland 2-0 Malta (result)

Incorrect prediction : -10 points
Scotland 1-3 Malta (prediction)   -  Scotland 2-1 Malta (result)

Banker & Insurance

For the first 9 rounds, every round each player will have 1 Banker and 1 Insurance at their disposal. If you place the Banker  on any correct outcome your points score for that fixture is multiplied x2 or x3 or x4, depending on which match you pick. For this, we will use the Leagues A and B done by Neil in the other game. Of course, if you use your banker and get the prediction wrong, your negative points will also be multplied accordingly.

A beats B / A & A draw / B & B draw : x2
A beats A / B beats B / A & B Draw : x3
B beats A : x4

When you place your Insurance, no matter what the outcome, the lowest you can score is : 0 points

Here are the 2 Leagues:

League A------------------------------League B
Argentina------------------------------------- Australia
Belgium--------------------------------------- Costa Rica
Brazil------------------------------------------ Egypt
Colombia-------------------------------------- Iceland
Croatia---------------------------------------- Iran
Denmark-------------------------------------- Japan
England--------------------------------------- South Korea
Spain------------------------------------------ Morocco
France----------------------------------------- Nigeria
Germany-------------------------------------- Panama
Mexico---------------------------------------- Russia
Peru------------------------------------------- Saudi Arabia
Poland----------------------------------------- Senegal
Portugal--------------------------------------- Serbia
Switzerland-----------------------------------  Sweden
Uruguay--------------------------------------- Tunisia

If anyone has any questions/queries, please ask. Even if you have no clue about football, it's all for fun, so have a go.

All players will post their predictions on this thread.

All predictions for a particular round must be posted BEFORE the first match in that round starts.  If however, you miss the deadline, then the rest of your predictions for that round will count.

I will keep a running total and league as the World Cup progresses. Good Luck.

Thanks to the players who have signed up, hope more people join. And of course, you're more than welcome to join once it's started.

Anyway, here are the matches for

Round 1

Russia (B) : Saudi Arabia (B)      
Egypt (B)  :  Uruguay (A)            
Morocco (B) : Iran  (B)              
Portugal (A) : Spain (A)            
France (A) : Australia (B)            
Argentina (A) : Iceland (B)          
Peru (A) : Denmark (A)              
Croatia (A) : Nigeria (B)

Don't forget to indicate which matches you wanted to use your Banker and Insurance on. Of course, if you wish, you can use them both on the same match. For example, if you felt inclined to think that:
France (A) : Australia (B)  1-2  Banker

...and the actual match result was
France (A) : Australia (B) 4-0

then you would score -40 points  (-10 x 4)

but if you did this:
France (A) : Australia (B)  1-2 Banker & Insurance
then you would score :  0 points

Hope that makes sense. Anyway, post your predictions on this thread before the first game kicks off on Thursday 17:00 CET

Will you have a little league table like I did for Super 6? Laughing tables are fun! There's probably a learning curve to this but I did my predictions before you posted yours. In simple terms, put your banker as a result your confident on and insurance on one you're unsure of. Either that or take a risk if you are playing catch up.

Russia (B) 1-0 Saudi Arabia (B)      
Egypt (B) 1-2 Uruguay (A)            
Morocco (B) 1-0 Iran  (B)              
Portugal (A) 0-1 Spain (A)            
France (A) 3-0 Australia (B)         BANKER      
Argentina (A) 2-1 Iceland (B)          
Peru (A) 1-2 Denmark (A)           INSURANCE          
Croatia (A) 2-0 Nigeria (B)

Yeah, I'll do a league table after each round. We have 6 players so far, if we could get 10 that would be kinda cool.
