Predicting the matches
Predict the end score of all the matches in the tournament. You have until 15 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction.
The server time is used. No discussion about that, so be on time if you want to fill in your scores.
As you may have noticed the matches in the next stages are not yet filled at the beginning of the tournament. Once the teams are through to the next round, I will add them. These games can also be changed until 15 minutes before the game starts. Or, if you’re feeling lucky, you can predict them now. We STRONGLY recommend you put in “SOME SCORE” for “ALL” the games, this way, if you forget, you still have a chance to pickup “some” point, leaving things blank , gets you NO POINT.
- *NOTE: For the knockout games, you are predicting the result of OPEN PLAY (90 min or 120 min) – you CAN have a tie game (means you are predicting that game is going to Penalty shootout).
The bonus questions
You can earn extra points during the tournament with the bonus questions. These questions must be answered before a given date and time. Each questions shows the points you can earn. DEADLINE FOR ALL BONUS QUESTIONS IS 15 min BEFORE THE FIRST GAME KICK-OFF (RUSSIA vs SAUDI ARABIA)
In the group phase the scores at the end of the game are used for the calculation of the scores. For final rounds the score at the end of the game including extra time is used. Goals in a penalty shoot-out are not taken into consideration.
You get points for predicting the correct winner of the match or prediction of a draw. We call this the toto score. In case you also predict the exact amount of goals scored, you get extra points. We call this the full score. If you got the goals correct you get the extra goal bonus, even if you didn’t get the match result correct (e.g. match ends in 1-1 and you predicted 0-1 you get no point. The last scoring options is the goal difference bonus: if you predict the correct winner, not the exact score, but you predicted the correct difference in goals, you get the goal difference bonus (e.g. you predicted 3-1 or 4-2 and result is 2-0).
|goal difference bonus (only if there is a winner)||1|
|bonus question||may be different for every question|
If you want to view the ranking, then go to the ranking page and pick the correct league. If you’re logged in, then the league for which you subscribed, is automatically picked.
NOTE: If you predicted 1-1 , and game ends 2-2 or 0-0, you get 4 points. Goal Difference ( 1) is NOT awarded for games ending in a draw. For draw, you either get 4 (if you have predicted the correct outcome – you predicted it will be a draw) OR 6 (if you have predicted the correct score).
When multiple players have the exact same amount of points, then the following sorting rules are applied on the ranking (most important one at the top):
- amount of full scores;
- amount of toto scores;
- amount of correct bonus questions.
