SC2k5 - Oracle Challenge - Round 1 - Mushroom, Zebes, Gear, and Dream Divisions
From: Kaxon | Posted: 7/4/2005 8:13:32 PM | Message Detail
Welcome to the Oracle Challenge, the contest that tests your prediction abilities down to the hundredth of a percent! There are some changes to the process this time, so please read this even if you have participated in the Oracle Challenge before.

The Challenge

For each match in the GameFAQs Summer Contest you need to pick a winner and predict the percentage of the vote they will receive.

Post your predictions in this topic, one prediction per line. Your predictions must be in one of these formats:

CATS with 85%
CATS 55.13%
CATS over Master Chief with 67.55%

See the next post for new notes on entering predictions.

The Scoring

For each match you will earn points based on how close your guess was to the actual outcome. Scoring is cumulative and the winner of the Oracle Challenge will be the person with the most points at the end of the final match. For each match you can earn anywhere between 0 and 50 points. This depends on whether you correctly picked the winner and how close your guess was to the actual percentage. The scoring system works as follows:

Correctly choosing the winner earns you 50-x points.
Incorrectly choosing the winner earns you 45-2x points.
(Where x is the difference between your guess and the character's actual percentage.)

Example:

Your guess: Link with 65%
My guess: CATS with 55%
Actual result: Link 60%, CATS 40%
Your points: 50 - (65-60) = 45 points
My points: 45 - 2*(55-40) = 15 points

Bonus points are awarded for the closest five guesses each match but do not factor into the overall scoring. They are used only as a side ranking. Participants will also be ranked by average score from time to time.

The Rules

It is necessary to have a few rules to keep the challenge running smoothly. They are:

1) A valid entry consists of a clear pick and prediction (i.e. Link with 85.03%). The prediction must be greater than or equal to 50.00%. No alts, please. All predictions should be made with your main account to make things easier on me. If you need to change accounts please let me know.
2) Your prediction does not need to be different from everybody elses guess. However, intentional and continuous prediction mimicry will not be allowed.
3) All predictions must be made one full hour before the usual start time of that matchs poll (approx. 2:00am EST, 1:00am CST, 11:00pm PST). Predictions submitted after this time will not be counted or may be subject to penalty. No predictions will be accepted after a poll has started, regardless of the start time.
4) You may change your prediction for any match at any time, subject to the rules above. Please indicate clearly that this is a change to a previous entry.
5) You many not delete any post in a prediction topic (if you do, please post immediately after to explain the deletion). This is to prevent abuse of the above rule (and to reduce confusion).
6) You may predict matches in advance if you need to. Please tell me beforehand so we can arrange this.
7) I reserve the right to disqualify a pick for any justifiable reason.

Predictions (NEW)

In the past we were more flexible about prediction formatting, because predictions were painstakingly recorded by hand. This season, in order to make running the contest more managable, predictions are going to be recorded with a script. If you follow these rules you shouldn't have to worry about your predictions being entered incorrectly:

1. Always include the % sign at the end of your predictions.
2. Spell the character's name right. Short names are fine as long as they are part of the name that appears in the bracket. For example, "Carl" is fine, but unfortunately "CJ" is not.
3. Make sure you post predictions for the correct round in each topic. Each round will have a separate topic. If you need to make predictions for a future round ahead of time, tell me and we'll work something out.
4. Remember that anything that looks like a prediction may be entered as one. If you're discussing the match or quoting someone else, leaving out the % sign will ensure you don't say something that's counted as a prediction.

Don't worry too much, if the script makes an obvious mistake I will correct it.

Just a note - since we've already had three people use dashes in their predictions, I'm going to add support for that to the script. The % sign is still required though.

Woosh!

tagged for 3 hours before the match starts!

I think a good addition for future topics would be to have an example of the "prefered format" listed in the first post. For instance, I'm not sure what the script will be able to read between "Mario with" and "Mario over Jo with" and "Mario -" etc all. I think some clarification here could save a goodly amount of time and effort on both ends.

Post your predictions in this topic, one prediction per line. Your predictions must be in one of these formats:

CATS with 85%
CATS 55.13%
CATS over Master Chief with 67.55%

See the next post for new notes on entering predictions.


I'm not quite sure what more you would have wanted ;)

I've been officially pwned by yoblazer, best Guru of 'em all.

Thanks NGamer. I tried to do that with the examples near the top:

CATS with 85%
CATS 55.13%
CATS over Master Chief with 67.55%

Those formats will all work. Let me know if you have advice for how to make it clearer.
