    Changes

    Guys, we have been having the same format for the Prediction League for the last 2 seasons. What do you think should be changed/added to add some spice to the game??? But definitely no 'scorers' thingee. It's too complicated.

    I propose we have something like a 'special game'. Which means that out of the 10 games we predict each week, there is one game which we choose so we can get 2 times the point out of that game. Example:

    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    Inter 7 -0 Milan <--- Special
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx
    xxx 0 - 0 xxx

    That means, for that special game, I'll get 2 times the point. If I predicted wrongly, I'll still get 0 point. Get it??? :p You'll be the one to choose the special game though. Or should I be the one who choose??? What do you think??? Your inputs are valuable please post here.

    since there is a bonus for the special game if we predict correctly, i think there should be reduction of points if we guess wrongly. that way, it'll be more interesting. as for the selection of the special match, i think we, predicters, should decide.

    my question is, if this is implemented, will the special match thing be a compulsory selection each week, or can we don't select it if we don't want to?

    It will be a great fight always which the 'special game' gonna be, I'm sure of it. Maybe one guy should decide it (Han).

    If you want some spice to change the game (not much), the way predicters get the points could be like this:

    Correct result: 10 points
    Correct goal difference: 6 points
    Correct winner (or tie): 4 points

    Plus that Special game where we can get double points. What do you think?

    That way the game could possibly be more even and more exciting. I think the point reduction would be too dramatic cause those who predicts correctly would get double points and rest will lose points so the cap between 'winners' and 'losers' would grow very fast.

    Or something...

    Good. So, the 'special game' thing will be added in the rules section. CafèCordoba, I think I'll pass on the 4-6 points allocation since it'll be hard to calculate. C'mon you guys, I need some more suggestions to add more spice!!!

    EDIT: And another change. From now on the results will be pasted on the Results thread rather than me mailing you the Excel files like the olden days. I think this will be a much convenient method for you guys. This change is due to the fact that I have finally learned how to upload/post images from my comp.

    Ah, I understood wrong that 'special game' thing, but now I see. It's a very good idea indeed. Though I don't still like the point deduction.. But whatever.

    Sheriff: I think it's hard to include EPL matches since some match start at Saturday night and lots of matches played on Monday/mid-week. So perhaps it'll be just Serie A and Inter's matches in other competition. But I can include a few La Liga matches if you guys want. Whaddaya think???

    CafèCordoba: Well, this (Point deduction) is to increase the tension of the game.

    Alright Han no problem, its just that predicting a game between Charlton and Birmingham will be much interesting than Santander V Espanyol IMO.

    I liked this suggestion :

    Correct result: 10 points
    Correct goal difference: 6 points
    Correct winner (or tie): 4 points




    And about that selecting team one :

    We can just do it for big games, involving : Inter/Juventus/Roma/Milan/Parma/Lazio.

    No. Please. 5-5 is much easier to do. :p A 4-6 format may cause a lot of errors you know. I'm human. If you want a 5-10 format can be used. As long as it's a multiply of 5. :p But if the demands are overwhelming, then I'll do it.

    About the 'special game' rule, you can choose any team, any game. But you must choose one every week!!!

    Sheriff: I'm talking about Real's, Barca's or Valencia's matches here.

    Yeah, 10-6-4 points system is fine, you can do it! We will trust you!

    If not the top team games from other leagues, then why not take Champions League games, they're exciting in my opinion at least. And it's funnier to follow them when we have the prediction going on here.(I can see only CL-games )

    OK, how bout this.

    1 game from EPL
    1 game from La Liga
    1 game from CL

    Those will be the bonus games. I'll decide the games of course since it'll take too long if we do a voting for every bonus games.

    OK man I understand.

    I suppose you are gonna choose 1 game from La Liga and thats going to be the derby of the round.

    Or you can make a poll and let us choose the game.

    Good ideas Han. You pick the La Liga and EPL matches, their bonus, keep the 5-10 system and the extra Inter matches. Perfect.

    I could have won last time if it had not been for 2 forums changes and 2 PL restarts

    Top goal-scorer??? Man that will be way too long. I mean, you start predicting now and you will only know the results 9 months after that.
