SC2k7 Oracle Challenge Discussion Topic
From: Kaxon | Posted: 8/16/2007 9:26:35 PM | Message Detail
This topic is for discussion of the SC2k7 Oracle Challenge! This seemed like a success last year, so we'll keep it going again this year. Here you can discuss the Oracle Challenge without wading through tons of prediction posts. Predictions only count if they are in the prediction topic!

I will start by saying there will be at least 1 perfect 50 throughout the course of this contest. I hope you're ready to shell out 50-60 bucks.

I am. If people start getting perfect scores right and left I'll end the offer, but shelling out for a couple games wouldn't be a problem.

For the record, last year we had a record-breaking 17 predictions out of 10,233 predictions. And that's trying to predict only one-on-ones...

I am. If people start getting perfect scores right and left I'll end the offer, but shelling out for a couple games wouldn't be a problem.
How much is a couple exactly? ''>_>

As long as it's possible to order a game online and have it shipped to you, then yes. However, the most we're willing to spend is $60 US, so if you live in Europe you might have to get a DS game or something.

When you say a perfect score, they predicted the correct percentages for each character as a decimal and such?
---
Sig goes here.
From: LeonhartFour | Posted: 8/18/2007 9:58:28 PM | Message Detail
Well, Rikku/Lenneth I would expect to have a fair number of perfects because it was an exact tripling, and a lot of people use round figures with no decimals.

I'm a decimal user though!
