2016-2017 Arsenal Report Prediction League

Posted by Ix Techau about 1 year 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.

with 50% of attendance, people tend to take safe approach when comes to prediction...

Yes, but if the leaderboard was about points instead, something as simple as

accuracy + attendance = prediction score

If we used that formula it would incentivise people to get a higher attendance. Using the above formula, the top 5 leaderboard would have ended like this:

  1. DJ
  2. medintern
  3. THE POLICE
  4. me
  5. Alex

...which makes more sense if you look at attendance.

No complaints about the change from me. If only I had been betting for real money instead of for time with John Terry.

I'll have some prices for the top 3 in the summer, probably a home kit each.

Good one.. But when's DJ's date with Terry, Nasri and ISIS leader !!! :P

"Whoever is at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the season wins 15 minutes alone in a windowless room with John Terry, Samir Nasri and an ISIS-leader of his or her choice."

No
Uh, "no"...

Can I choose any ISIS leader? And is airfare to Iraq Syria included? Now that I think of it, a home kit sounds a bit nicer if still an option...
