Four days until Nationals and no Prediction Contest yet?

Prediction Contest will open Wednesday afternoon and will close Saturday morning before the tournament. Sorry for the delay, we've been trying to get some things to work.

Will the format be similar to last years?

Yes, but all predictions are made through microtransactions (we're thinking about 99 cents per prediction slot). The winner will receive 1.00% of the total entry fees.

Rules are the same, the method of collecting responses will be different. With Google Forms, more complicated response validation was not possible so many responses could not be counted (because submissions did not follow rules). With the new form, your response will not show until all rules are followed.

Is there a limit on how many microtransactions you can make? I think I'm limited cause the state says I have a "gambling addiction" or something....
