    World Cup Tipping Comp

    Because for some reason this hasn't been done yet.

    Will be done like the yearly Premier League tipping. But for those not familiar, will quote Furball from last August.

    1) 1 point per correct tip. A bonus point will be on offer for a correct tip that nobody else makes. So for instance, if I am the only person to tip Swansea to beat Man Utd, and Swansea win, then that tip is worth 2 points.

    2) Bonus points will be awarded for the week's top tipper(s), but these will only be used to separate posters who are on the same number of actual tips. As we have midweek games up here weeks are deemed to run from Saturday to Friday.

    3) No editing of tips. At all. If you change your mind please quote your original tips in a new post. Avoids any potential skullbuggery and it's less easy to miss tips for me.

    4) Non-submitters get the lowest score, minus one point, for the week for three weeks, then will be removed from the comp.

    5) Latecomers join on the lowest actual score so far minus one point.

    6) Tips for postponed games will not be carried forward. So if you tip Man Utd to beat Wigan in January, it gets rained off and rearranged for April, you'll need to tip again at the time of the rescheduled fixture. Less of a ball-ache for me, basically.

    7) As we have 3 potential results & teams often play more than once a week please C&P the whole fixture and highlight your winner or write "draw" beside the fixture and highlight that.

    8) Tips must be submitted before kickoff to be valid.
    In the case of this, a week will be Monday to Sunday Brazil time. When the knockouts arrive will post the games as they filter through.

    Thoughts on offering more points for the latter stages?

    Would suggest that rather than doing it by weeks you do it by batches of matches, either 8 or 16 for group matches, then each knock-out round as an individual round?

    Good to see this being created. I was wondering if we'd follow EPL or do like the tennis and the points doubles each round, but happy this way.
