The Official LLM World Cup Predictions Cup
#1
22-05-2014, 08:17 PM
We have our minimum number of participants but there is still time to join as I shall be working out the seeding over the weekend.

The Rules are as follows:

1. Group Stage (League Format)

All participants shall be seeded based on past performance of LLM Predictions competitions and drawn into four groups.

Each LLM Group shall be assigned two World Cup groups and be asked to predict the result of each fixture in those two groups. (3 rounds of 4 fixtures)

Points shall be awarded as follows:
1 point for a correct result
3 points for a perfect score

You can choose 1 game from each round as a 'points boost' fixture giving you the opportunity of double points for that fixture only.

Group positioning is decided by number of points earned. In the event of a tie the highest seed (between the tied parties) shall take precedent.

The winner and runner up of each group shall progress to the knockout stage of the competition.

You may predict all group fixtures in one post or progressively before each round of games commence.

The latest time for prediction posts shall be given before each round (UK BST) Late entries shall not be counted

2. Knockout Stage (Cup Format)

QF1: Grp 1 Winner v Grp 4 Runner Up
QF2: Grp 2 Winner v Grp 3 Runner Up
QF3: Grp 3 Winner v Grp 2 Runner Up
QF4: Grp 4 Winner v Grp 1 Runner Up

All World Cup Round of 16 fixtures to be predicted on a head to head basis.

Points for predictions to be awarded as above with following change:

No 'points boost' fixture

Results shall be decided after extra time and penalties as appropriate. An extra 2 points shall be awarded for a result correctly predicted to finish in penalties.

So if you correctly predict a draw and the right team to proceed after penalties you shall receive 3 points (1 point if you predict the draw but choose the losing side in the pens)

if you have the correct score and the right team to proceed after penalties you shall receive 5 points (3 points if you predict the correct score but choose the losing side in the pens)

The winner of each head to head fixture shall proceed to Semi-Final

3. Semi-Finals

SF1: Winner QF1 v Winner QF2
SF2: Winner QF3 v Winner QF4

All World Cup Quarter Final fixtures to be predicted on a head to head basis

Points for predictions as per Knockout Stage above.

An additional 'Penalty Shoot Out' prediction shall be requested in case of a tie.

The winner of each head to head fixture shall proceed to Final

4. Final

Winner SF1 v Winner SF2

The fixtures to decide the Final shall be the World Cup Semi-Finals, Third Place Play Off and Final.

Points for Predictions as above with a 'Penalty Shoot Out' decider in the event of a tie.

Apologies if this sounds complicated; I can assure you, especially the Predictions Newbies amongst you, that in practice this will be quite straightforward.

Any questions post here or PM me.

The LLM Predictions Coefficient have now been calculated in order to establish the seeding for each group in the upcoming LLM World Cup Predictions Cup.

All points earned in previous LLM Predictions Leagues (from 2010/11) have been included.

Points have been awarded for the LLM Predictions Cups events as follows:

Winner 100 points
Runner-Up 50 points
Semi-Finalist 25 Points
Quarter Finalist 12 points
Group Stage 6 points

A progressive weighting has been applied to each total score as follows
2013/14 Points x 1.00
2012/13 Points x 0.75
2011/12 Points x 0.50
2010/11 Points x 0.25

The LLM Coefficient is detailed in the following table:
[Image: 1cdd0bcb-90bb-4386-980f-5d435cb17a89_zpsc90cd246.jpg]

So the seeds are:
Pot One: Soulfusion, bennytee, f1dave, juvehero
Pot Two: Walks, keefa, kin_lin, ken66
Pot Three: deanashtonsfoot, Trikstahz, Fenomen, tomtwice
Pot Four: WilliamMcBeard, Sesquipedalianst, Deus
Pot Five: brummied, Casdelo, JD95, SackedLlama, sacktheboard

There shall be four Groups each with five players, with one player drawn from each pot. Since there are five 'newbies' there are only three players in Pot Four so one Group shall have two players from Pot Five.

The Draw for the Groups shall take place later this week.

Thanks Sep (tic) Wink
100 years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like; but the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.

I'm sure we can fit you in Mile, but since the seeding has already been announced you will have to go into the 4th pot.

I hope this is OK
