If you haven't submitted a response or wanted to edit an already submitted response, you have until Friday, May 15, 2015, 12:00 pm PST (03:00 pm ET) to do so.

Again, the link to submit a response is scioly.club/prediction and the link to view a summary of submitted responses is scioly.club/prediction/summary. The summary is immediately updated with each response so it includes invalid responses (those that list schools more than the allowed number) until I delete them.

Some responses have schools listed more times than allowed (at most three times for Event Predictions and one time for Top Teams). If I've messaged you about it, you may edit your original response or resubmit to have your prediction contest score ranked among the valid responses. If you haven't received a message within a few hours, your submission was fine.

Bear in mind, the more predictions there are, the more fun it is for everyone! They don't all need to be perfect, and sometimes if you just go by your first instinct, your prediction ends up being better. Just submit something, and who knows, you may end up doing pretty well!

EDIT: Div B is lagging behind Div C, I guess there are lots of C Divisioners who aren't brave enough to take a shot at B. :roll:

Thanks to everyone who submitted responses to the Prediction Contest for this year's National Tournament!

As explained in the form, for the Event Prediction contest, your score was the sum of the places each school you listed received in that event with lowest score winning, and for the Top Teams contest, you received 5 points for each team you got exactly right, 3 points for each team that was off by one place, 2 points for each team that was off by two places, and 1 point for each team that was off by three places with highest score winning. I also added Overall Division B and Overall Division C scores, which were the average of (1380 - EVENT_PREDICTION_SCORE)/1380 and TOP_TEAM_SCORE/50.

Four users beat Troy's score of 213. Nobody beat Solon's score, though.

Prediction Contest!

More details about each contest are in the form, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
The form will close the day before Nationals, and results will be announced sometime after Nationals. I might have a prize...

Shoutout to John Richardsim who helped in the making of the form and robotman for supporting it!
Have you decided whether there is a prize? Ya know just curious.

There should be more weight towards first place in the top teams contest. Because I feel like I should get credit for picking the top two correctly, even if the rest of my picks were meh.

But I'm not bitter or anything. :P
