RektBets

Post by wawmoose » Mon Aug 10, 2015 6:09 pm

Hi frnds!

What is this?
  • RektBets is predictions contest for the remainder of the Season 5 ZHL regular season and play-offs, run by the one and only commish.
How does this work?
  • The concept is very simple, each round you will predict which teams will win their ZHL match-ups.
    Each correct prediction of a regular season match earns you 1 point.
    Each correct prediction of a play-offs series earns you 3 points.
    The player with the highest amount of points by the end of the season will win.
    There is a maximum of 100 players allowed to participate (I'd be happy if I get 10 XD).
    Point updates will be posted when I have the time, but before play-offs begin for sure.
    The home team is always the first one listed!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How do I participate?
  • You must first contact me to gain a RektBets ID code, which you will need to post for every single round in order to verify who you are.
    Do NOT share this code with anyone, and if you forget it, I'll remind you. This has nothing to do with your battlnet ID #. Sharing codes is a DQ offense.
    Ways to contact me: comment here or PM on forums (WaWMoose), PM in-game/battlenet (DancingMoose/WaWMoose), Twitch Chat (Wawmoose), Teamspeak (Steve).
    Each round will have its own response form, posted here. Answer the forms before the deadlines.
    The deadline for responses is the starting time for the first Match-up of that round (so be careful with reschedules!!!) - I'd advise answering all the sheets ASAP, and editing your answers before the deadline if you so choose.


What does the winner get?
  • Bragging rights, Moose's approval, the title of 'Rek-ing Ball', and a 25$ Amazon Gift Card! Perhaps more, depending on participation.


Where do I send my predictions?

Perhaps offer incentives to underdog picks, or force 1 underdog pick per week.

An example of an incentive could be offering more points if you pick the last place team to beat the first place team, or any team 5 standings spots away from another. Or a small boost for away teams picked to win over home teams

Seriously considered something like this, but found out that score-keeping becomes much much harder for me and I'm just a tad lazy :)

The benefit of correctly predicting an underdog is inherent in that few other people will have successfully made that prediction. You don't need to artificially boost this.

That's something you'd need to work out with a DEV D:

Nobody will ever pick the Reapers are Renegades unless there's a bonus. Meaning the pool of matches is artificially lowered to 4 every week. With only ~10 people participating you won't be able to retain interest if the majority of people make the same picks every week.

pm me a rektbet ID, also I'm a bit confused as to where I'm supposed to "post your rektbet ID before every round to verify who you are" where/how do I do this ?
