Game Rules

Just start in the Prediction Center (https://www.kicktipp.co.uk/crucible/predict). The evaluation is automated and determined by following patterns:

Overview

  • round number = points for predicting the winner
  • correct result = doubled points
  • draw = triple points
  • bonus questions: five points per answer
  • bonus questions: position dependent points for rankings
  • champion is predicted before each round
  • walkovers (w/o) are ignored

Example: If the main draw of a tournament starts with round 'Last 128' then 'Last 16' is the 4th round. Forecasting the right winner equals four points and even eight, if the result is predicted correctly.

Nicknames

Instead of the players' real names their 'official' nicknames (if they exist) are used within all the tables. Like the fictional example:

"The Wizard of Wiedemannsdorf" vs. "The Salmaster"

The short version for overviews are the first letter of the real forename followed by the first four letters of the surname (e.g. MKrau):

Bonus questions

Bonus questions are worth 5 points per answer. Depending on their content they have to be answered before the first involved match is scheduled - sometimes the beginning of the tournament.

Points for ranked answers consider the position as well as the difference to wrong predictions. This mode suits for group phases (for details look at 'Point rules').

Example: What is the final ranking 1-4 in Group X?

Predict '1234' is worth

  • 10 points: positions 1 to 4 correct. (result: 1234)
  • 7 points: positions 1 and 2 correct. (result: 1243)
  • 6 points: positions 3 and 4 correct. (result: 2134)
  • 3 points: 1/2 and also 3/4 transposed. (result: 2143)
  • 1 point: 1 lost, but order 2 to 4 correct. (result: 2341)
  • 0 points: each position shifted by 2. (result: 3412)
