Prediction Contest 2018

Postby bernard » May 15th, 2018, 5:59 am

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

scioly.org/fantasy

The forms are processed individually so rather than filling out all four at once, do them separately. The form also checks that you're following rules; e.g. if you list any team more than three times in event predictions, it'll try to prevent you from submitting. After you fix it, click around to make the submit button reappear. This form is new so in case it breaks maybe save a screenshot of your submission before you submit in case anything goes wrong.

Prediction Contest results are posted to the submissions page. This is the first year using this new system so any feedback or suggestions for features are welcome.

I didn't do a formula for performance across all contests, but it looks like The48thYoshi predicted very well, winning both divisions for the events contest.

Getting top 7 perfect in Div C Overall helped me a lot... also I really feel like I misclicked on Disease C... (though I did briefly consider TV I can't imagine I'd actually pick them over someone safer). I did basically as well as I expected in Div B though...

I was surprised when I saw someone had picked our HS team in DD, but I didn't realize that was you! Too bad they didn't do better... You just wait until 2021 (when I'm in 11th and Nerd_Bunny is in 12th), we'll show you all.

I feel like something in the div B events got screwed up because i definitely put Solon first for rocks and I had beckendorff for meteorology. However, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining because I ended up winning anyways :D

I am surprised by the fact I did pretty good for flat-out guesses on most. :D

Did East do an explanation of changes to his computer's algorithm and how that affected predictions?

For division B, not a single person got 8th place right, only one person got 9th right, only 2 people got 10th right, and the person who got 3rd right was trolling.

Also, not a single person got 8th and 10th right for division C.
