SC2k7 Oracle Challenge - FINALS
From: Kaxon | Posted: 11/2/2007 9:01:24 PM | Message Detail
It's the last match, so I don't think I need to repost the scoring system and examples. Here's how this is going to work. There are 6 possible final match combinations. Post separate predictions here for whichever ones you think have a chance of happening. (If you're predicting late in the day, I encourage you to not bother with the ones that can't happen). The possibilities are:

Link -
Cloud Strife -
Solid Snake -
L-Block -

Link -
Cloud Strife -
Solid Snake -
Master Chief -

Cloud Strife -
Solid Snake -
Dante -

Cloud Strife -
L-Block -
Master Chief -

L-Block -

The Rules

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

1) A valid entry consists of four clear predictions per match. The sum of your predictions in a match does not need to be equal to 100.00%.
2) Your prediction does not need to be different from everybody else's. However, intentional and continuous prediction mimicry will not be allowed.
3) All predictions must be made five minutes before the usual start time of that match's poll (approx. 11:55pm EST, 10:55am CST, 8:55pm 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.
5) You may not delete any post in a prediction topic (if you do, please post immediately after to explain the deletion). This is to prevent cheating and to reduce confusion.
6) If you post with an alt, you must clearly state the name of your main account. (Exception: if the alt is listed on your user profile page http://oraclechallenge.com/profiles.php?type=users, I already know about it).
7) You may predict matches in advance if you need to. Please tell me beforehand so we can arrange this.
8) I reserve the right to disqualify a pick for any justifiable reason.

Prizes

Given the difficulty of predicting four different characters, King Morgoth and I have decided to offer a special prize this contest. Anyone who gets a perfect score of 50.00 for a match will get a free new game of their choice! (Maximum cost of $60 USD). No, we don't expect this to happen... prove us wrong!
