2016-2017 Arsenal Report Prediction League

Posted by Ix Techau 11 months ago · 48 replies

Before every game you can now predict the outcome (win/draw/loss) and climb the leaderboards over the season and win a prize at the end! Anyone can join Arsenal Report in 30 seconds and start predicting. Prizes haven't been determined yet, but we'll have stuff for the top three predictors.

Rules:

  1. To avoid people just making one accurate prediction and then stop (staying on 100% until the end), we will look at your attendance throughout the season (your predictions / number of matches played) and filter out people below a certain attendance. However, this is calculated based on when you registered, so new users can join mid-season and still be in the running. Attendance minimum will likely be around 60-70%.

  2. To avoid people just joining before the last game of the season, we require the predictors to have made a minimum number of predictions throughout the season. Minimum will likely be around 6-10 predictions.

  3. Don't be an arsehole. It's very easy for us to spot exploits.

That's it, start predicting! You can always find the next upcoming game on the home page.

How about 2 leagues? 1 for people who have predicted every game and the other for those who haven't....

Yeah I am thinking about splitting it up somehow. Doesn't have to be 100% attendance as it's easy to miss a couple of games during a season...but could have one for 90%, one for 70%, one for 50%, etc.

I'm a stats geek so I'd love to see where we - as a community of Arsenal fans - are overly optimistic or pessimistic.

eg. are we overly optimistic about home games?

Perhaps that could go somewhere on a prediction stats page. Though I'm sure you have more than enough on your plate!

Interesting. That could definitely be done mid-season so we have enough data.

Oops did I make the wrong selection vs. Southampton?!? If so, ugh... oh well. Need to be more careful.

How do I change my prediction? I accidentally tapped this on my mobile phone. Definitely would not have intentionally chosen the one that I selected.

Eboue
Eh...what?

Is this possible? Right now it has me as picking Stoke. Wanted to pick us of course!

Well then! The season is over, and the final prediction top 5 is as follows:

  1. Simmer (72% accuracy and 53% attendance)
  2. medintern (71% accuracy and 87% attendance)
  3. DJ (71% accuracy and 93% attendance)
  4. poodris (68% accuracy and 51% attendance)
  5. TopTopQuality (68% accuracy and 51% attendance)

Have to say, a 71% accuracy on a 93% attendance is pretty impressive from DJ. Next season I'm gonna start ranking the toplist with attendance in mind. DJ should really be first on that list.

Thanks for playing. If anyone has any ideas on how to improve the Predict-A-Tron for next season, let me know!
