Description

Hi Guys,

four long years have passed again and the worlds biggest spectacle is about to kick off, the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It's a long tradition that we have a little CMU Competition on the outcome of the group stages and that's not going to change this year.

Here are the rules. If you wanna participate, you have to send me the buyin of 2.50$ on PS or CMU. If you wanna gamble for more, please feel free to open a separate Last Longer and post the link here in the comments, maybe there are more that wanna wager more money. Then you have to send me your predictions for both the final standings of the eight individual groups and the ten questions I have posted below via PM. Deadline for that will be one hour before the first game starts on Thursday. You cannot change your predicitons after you have sent them to me, unless I find something wrong about them.

 

Here is what you have to predict.

a) Group Standings (max 32 points)
Guess the final standings of all eight groups (graphic below). You earn one point for every right placement, so four points max per group, 32 points max total.
 
 
b) Special Questions (max 20 points)
 
Additionally, you have to guess the right answer to ten questions. Whoever is closest to the right answer will earn two points, so 20 points can be earned max. Having multiple winners per question is obviously possible, if people are off the same amount from the right answer, it doesnt matter to which side they are off. If the right number of goals is 8 and the closest answers are 7 and 9, both will get two points.
 
Team with most goals scored after group stage: 2 points
Team with most goals received after group stage: 2 points
Player with most goals after group stage: 2 points
Total amount of Draws in group stage: 2 points
Total amount of red cards in group stage (red and yellow-red cards combined): 2 points
Total amount of penalties in group stage: 2 points
Amount of goals combined in all group stage games: 2 points
Number of European countries to reach knockout stage (according to FIFA, Russia for example is European): 2 points
Minute in which the earliest goal of group stage will be scored (official FIFA website for exact time): 2 points
Most amount of goals in a single match (both sides combined): 2 points

 

For the people not too familiar with the World Cup, the group stage includes all games within the groups, so six games in every group, 48 games total.

As usually, the person that accumulates the most points will win this competition. Depending on the amount of people joining, I might pay out several places. I will participate in this aswell, I have my predictions already set and will send them as a reply to everyones PM. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Thanks all for listening, good luck!

Schabernack (2 months ago - 11 Jun 2018 19:49 UTC)

Clemideluxe was so generous to add 10$ to the prize pool!!! Thanks for that Clemi!


hannyug (2 months ago - 11 Jun 2018 21:03 UTC)

i thought predictions were meant to be sent to schaber and only revealed after event starts?

and, 3 cards only over the 48 group games ???


Schabernack (2 months ago - 11 Jun 2018 21:28 UTC)

Yes Hanny, that was the plan. Will PM Clemi and ask him to edit his post :D.


Schabernack (2 months ago - 11 Jun 2018 21:31 UTC)

To make it clear, the additional ten questions only include the group stage aswell, so only the 48 games. For example, the player with the most goals would be the player with the most goals scored after the three group games.

Hi Dave


K37 (2 months ago - 13 Jun 2018 12:15 UTC)

Cool i try to do this tomorrow but not sure i Will have time. Maybe push it back to start of first game?


Schabernack (2 months ago - 13 Jun 2018 19:06 UTC)

Ok K37, you can send in your picks until the start of the first game. But that means I will post everyones picks tomorrow evening after the game, because I will be out to watch the opening ceremony and the game and cannot access my prediction sheet until then…

Schab i did send that the first goal was 3min 20sec


Schabernack (2 months ago - 16 Jun 2018 21:35 UTC)

Yes Koen, thanks, had it changed earlier, but for some reason it doesn’t let me edit the post from above. Here is the corrected one https://i.imgur.com/KTCr5Yc.jpg

So looking good for you right now if no earlier goal hits :D
