Ok so instead of the system we used last year, we're impovising with some new rules this time around. It hasn't been tested properly so if we get a lot of bug reports, we'll just go back to the old one. For reference's sake, this is how it worked last year:
  • 3 points for the exact score
    Prediction is 3-1, result is 3-1, you get 3 points
  • 1 point for correct match outcome (win/draw/loss)
    Prediction is 3-1, result is 2-1, you get 1 point
The new system that we're going to try this year should be more interesting as it's a little more complicated. Basically, we're just using the functions already existing in the software so this isn't something we decided on specifically, it's a finished product that we just use.
  • 5 points for the exact score
    Prediction is 3-1, result is 3-1, you get 5 points
  • 3 points for correct match outcome (win/draw/loss)
    Prediction is 3-1, result is 2-1, you get 3 points
  • 2 points for correct score margin
    Prediction is 3-1, result is 5-3, you get 2 points
  • 1 point each for correct home and away score
    Prediction is 3-1, result is 1-1, you get 1 point for correct away score, 0 points for incorrect home score

    Looking at the scoreboard after the first round I conclude that the system for calculating points is nothing like I thought it would be. And I can't be bothered to really find out either, it's more interesting this way isn't it? :D

    So apparently the last 3 rules are not implemented at all. :doh:
