Romanian Cup Prediction League Proposal

Since a lot of our XPS competitors have only submitted results for a few rounds, I thought they may be interested in a "shorter" prediction tournament. Due to the structure of the Cup, it will only have 5 rounds or so plus a final.

If you're interested, please reply here. Thanks!

I think the rules should be rather similar (except for draws), but a few of the matches each round will have a "special" bonus attached.

Correct result at 90': +2 points
Correct winner at 90': +1 point

Draw at 90':
Correct score: +2 points
Predicting the draw: +1 points

Draw bonus:
Predicting correct team advancing: +0.5 points
Predicting correct team advancing & how (PK or after XT): +1 point -- no scores need be indicated, but you can if you wish


Special matches:
1) Half/Full Time match (i.e. 3-0 (1-0)), we apply the same rules as above but twice. If draw, you can still indicate advancing team, to get the bonus
2) "Bold match": double points as usual
3) Plus/minus: e.g. Ariesul Turda - Dacia Chisinau (-1.5) -- you can just predict the score and you get the usual points, plus 2 extra points if you get the difference correct (more than 1.5 goals for Ariesul in this case)

If this first round doesn't get enough participants, I'll abandon the idea. But let's see.


For example:

Say you had,
FC Nuku'Alofa - Fiji Suva 1-1 (4-3 PK):

If your prediction is:

2-2 & Nuku'Alofa & AET: 1.5 points
1-1 & Nuku'Alofa & PK: 3 points
1-1 & Fiji Suva & PK: 2 points

(double points for bold matches, just like in the league).

Say you had:
Football Tuvalu - Messerschmitt Honiara 3-0 (1-0)

If you'd predict:
Tuvalu - Honiara 3-0 (1-0), then 4 points, for both final and half-time results
Tuvalu - Honiara 3-0 (0-0), then 2 points, for the final result
Tuvalu - Honiara 2-0 (0-0), then 0 points, even if you have the 2nd half result correct--sorry

Say you had:
Eleven Random Guys - Micronesia U-23 (-7.5) and it ends 8-0.

If you predict 10-0, then guy get 1 pt for correct winner, and 2 points since the victory margin was >7.5 goals.... so 3 pt total.
If you predict 8-0, you get 4 pts.
If you predict 1-0, you just get the 1 point.

If you guys think this is too complicated, you have about one week to let me know what you'd propose. Let's say by the end of Sunday, Romanian time.

I'll post matches once the locations and times are 100% fixed.

It's ok to me, but I don't know if it will get enough participants.

Up to you:

Should I make it so that each round before the final is worth the same amount?

I'd do it such that the first round would be worth 0.5*(Your Score), the 2nd round (Your Score), then the Quarters and Semis be 2*(Your Score) assuming the semis will be 2-legged as usual.

I will post the matches here, mostly so I don't have to find them again at liga2.ro; you guys should take a look where the matched are played, so that you know who is unlucky and not playing at home. I won't post this info when I open the prediction thread itself.

Since everyone seems happy with my arrangement, I'll probably open that thread Thursday night.
