It would be fun to have a competition and prize for the most accurate outcome prediction. Predict the top two of each group and every subsequent match outcome.

great idea :-)
What do you think about such short rules:

You can collect points for:
1. If you guess top two in one group, with proper order: 3 points
2. If you guess top two in one group, ordered wrong: 2 points
3. If you guess only one of top two in the group: 1 points
4. If you guess winner in a match in final rounds: 2 points

What do you think?
If we agree about the rules, we should create another topic for predictions :-)

Shouldn't make predictions after the matches are played. (They can be inferred from 1vs1 league stats). Maybe for those who start prediction late they lose a percentage of their score for "Group predictions" according to how many games have already been played.

I agree with those rules, clarification for #4 is that the winner you submit for final rounds is like "Group A #1" beats "Group E #2" rather than by name. And then subsequently your prediction is "Winner of A1 vs E2" beats "Winner of B1 vs F2" (for example).

or maybe we should allow predictions for final rounds after preliminary?

Just an FYI to Tourney players: Individual scores have to be manually added to group chart. This will be done close to the end of the day.
The site tracks the matches played and is reviewed throughout the day....so no worries there!

Good luck to all and have fun!

I've set up a draft prediction/bet system which you can use to predict the final winner at http://helit.org/bets, originally intented for LTS. The faster you make a bet, the higher your score will be.

EDIT: Weird bug fixed for real

Regardless of rules my prelim bets are:

A1 Const
A2 klav
B1 slime
B2 glue
C1 miro
C2 king
D1 plasma
D2 quantum
E1 blinky
E2 catay
F1 asmeouuus
F2 white mage
G1 osta
G2 jh
H1 levi
H2 lowtop

At time of writing there are 10 matches under A, 10 under C, 6 under F, 6 under G

I think it might be better to just bet for the outcomes past the prelims (hopefully more people come to bet).

I am winning the bets:

My bets
A 1
B 1
C 3
D 3
E 1
F 3
G 1
H 2
Total 15

osta:
A 1
B 3
C 2
D 1
E 1
F 1
G 3
H 1
Total 13

In hindsight I don't like this scoring system, e.g. you should get more than 1 point for guessing first correctly but getting 2nd wrong. Even guessing 2nd correctly but 1st wrong should get more points.

Next bets:
I brad
J slime
K miro
L plasma
M klav
N asme
O osta
P qd
