Hey guys, the groups for the World Championship have been made and it looks quite promising. I want to do a kind of challenge (game if you want). Like Myhand has a competition for who can predict the games on WL the best, I want to do a challenge on who can predict the WC the best.

How am I going to give you a score for your predicted games? Very simple, I`m going to use a system I got from a dutch site.

Here is how it goes:

Predict score and winner wrong: 0 points (example: Prediction = 2-1, Match Score = 1-2. Means 0 points)
Predict half score correct and winner wrong: 2 Points (example: Prediction = 2-1, Match Score = 0-1)
Predict Winner correct but not the score: 5 Points (Example: Prediction = 2-1, Match Score = 1-0)
Predict Winner and half score correct: 7 points (Example: Prediction = 2-1, Match Score = 2-0)
Predict Score completely correct: 10 points (Example: Prediction = 2-1, Match Score = 2-1)


Your points will be calcuted then with the formula: P = T/R (points = total points divided by the rounds participated) This means that you can jump in and out of this any time you want without losing points.

Furthermore, as this is the first time, there are some bonus points to give:
You can now, as this is before the WC has started, predict who will make it through their group and who will make it to the finals. For every correct groupplace you`ll get 5 bonus points, for every correct team afterwards you`ll get 10 points.

RULES

1. Make your prediction clear, don`t write anything together and give the matches the same number as I did.

2. Don`t edit your post on the day the first match is play, or anytime afterwards. If you want to adjust a prediction before the match has started, make a new post. Every post edited on the day the first match was played, or any day after that first match will result in me not counting your score anymore.

3. Don`t come with last minute predictions, I would like to have them all in a word document (which makes it easier for me to calculate the scores, without getting confused.)

4. Don`t jump out on purpose because you are far ahead on the rest and don`t want to risk lowering your score. Be a nice guy and keep it fair.

5. Don`t edit your post if you see you`ve done badly in this round. Once again keep it fair.

The bonus-point round will be in the next post.

Bonus-point round:

What is the bonus-round?

The bonus-round is something that you predict before the competition/championship starts. After the championship has finished we will look back at your predictions and give you points on everything you predicted right.

Points will be given as following:
5 points per correct place in the group stage
10 points per correct teams in all stages afterwards
25 bonus points if you have the two finalist correct + the winner.

This will only start in JUNE, but because this is a lot of information for me to put organised in a document, so it is ok to start a little early. About the rest of the matches, I`m thinking about those, not sure about it.

@Arun: Croatia... last? :/ We were actually bad last matches of qualifications, but we changed coach for play-offs (ex-captain became coach), you have to see how we played 2nd match against Iceland, we could beat them atleast 5-0, but we were bad at realisation and ended with 2-0 victory

My expectations for group rankings + some words...:

Group A
Brazil --> :D
Croatia --> :0
Mexico --> Behind Honduras and Costa Rica in qualifications, then defeated mighty New Zealand in play-off
Cameroon --> fast... right?

(but I hope that Croatia will surprise Brazil :D)

Group B
Spain --> >:-)
Netherlands --> :/ ...
Chile --> ...
Australia --> D:

(unless if Netherlands surprises us again like at EURO 2012)

Group C
Columbia --> Falcao will score hat-trick in every game and get us to championship.
Ivory Coast --> ?
Greece --> ?
Japan --> ?

(all of these are pretty much equal, everyone can be first, everyone can be last)

Group D
Italy --> Let's be more like 2006 rather than 2010...
Uruguay --> You loose 'cause we have Cavani
England --> :O
Costa Rica --> :(

(this is a tough one, but after seeing FA president's reaction to this group...)

Group E
France --> ._.'
Switzerland --> ':D
Ecuador --> ?
Honduras --> ˙0˙

(poor France, FIFA is always against them :'( )

Group F
Argentina --> ;) they pass.
Bosnia-Herzegovina --> :DDDDebut!
Nigeria --> nigger :3
Iran --> :(

(go neighbours!)

Group G
Germany --> ˝_˝
Portugal --> :?
Ghana --> Let's revenge to Germans
USA --> 'This isn't football'

(there could always be surprises!)

Group H
Russia --> Better than Portugal in qualifications...
Belgium --> 8-|
South Korea --> Croats defeated them twice this year... with total of 6-1...
Algeria --> Bosnian coach

(honestly, Belgium became arrogant and irritating and I want someone to beat them)
