A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the first half. The full table:
1st Half E Pluribus Choose-Em Table
The competition is far from over though. Standings will reset, and the rules will change slightly (I'll get to that shortly), but the concept will remain the same for the second half of the season.
You may have noticed that the season isn't half over yet, but this competition is. That's because we are planning a special playoffs-esque tournament for the last few weeks of the season. More info on that will come out as we work out details and the end of the season comes closer.
Remember that survey you (hopefully) took a while ago? Well, I reviewed the feedback given from that and I have adjusted the rules according to your wishes.
What will stay the same:
- What you predict (scoreline and starting XI)
- The schedule (results on Mondays at 9:00, prediction posts Thursdays at noon), unless it's a midweek game, where things may be combined
What will change:
- The scoring system will look a little different. There will be 15 points possible, awarded for:
1 point for each correctly predicted player (up to 11 points possible from this)
2 points for correctly predicting the overall result (win, loss, draw)
1 point for correctly predicting Minnesota United's score
1 point for correctly predicting the opponents score
Hopefully this scoring system improves the participant experience in the competition.
For Round 1 of part 2 (yes, the rounds will start over at one), our Loons travel to RSL with a chance to pick up some away points. This is the place to predict for Saturday's matchup.
Thanks, as always, for your participation. Fill up the comments with your predictions, Loons fans!
