Prediction contests don't just appear. Best strategy would be to contact bernard directly, either via forum PM or on chat. You may be able to help him out somehow.

Prediction Contest 2017!

The form for Prediction Contest is now live! Submissions will be accepted until Saturday morning, immediately before the tournament starts.

scioly.org/fantasy

You do not need to participate in all contests since each form works independently. All submission codes will appear at the top, and multiple can be submitted through one message.

Nice. Is there a summary anywhere like in 2015? That was fun to watch.

No this year, but probably next year.

Each two digit unit represents the team number. For event placements, it follows alphabetical order of the events. For top 10, it goes from 1st through 10th.

I think I calculated it correctly

B Event Predictions: 238
C Event Predictions: 184
B Top Ten: 30
C Top Ten: 20

For B I used last year's winner(or for the equivalent event) for all but 4 events, and those 4 happened to get 4th or 5th place with the school I chose(one of them would have been 1st if I didn't change it though :roll: ).
