From the makers of Cold Snap and the Pyramid Lottery, we bring you a new competition for Champions League 2018...

The Prophet's Profit

Here is how the competition works. Simply predict the Top 3 (in order) from each Champions League 2018 group.

You earn points as follows:

1st place - 4 points
2nd place - 3 points
3rd place - 2 point
Correct 3 qualifiers (but none of them in the right position) - 1 point
Bonus for getting the Top 3 in the correct order - 1 point
Special Bonus for selecting a Group Winner in the correct position that nobody else picks - 5 points

Special Punishment if your predicted Group Winner does not even qualify - Dishonourable Elimination


Example

In Group A, if you select:

1st Moghedien
2nd Hielco
3rd Loco Luc

And the actual Results are:

1st Hielco
2nd Moghedien
3rd Loco Luc

Then you score: 2 points (only Loco Luc is in the correct position)

--------

Those with great psychic powers will not need to refer to the Champions League 2018 Group Tables, but just in case it gives you a special feeling - here is the link to the current tables:

http://forum.strateg...8-group-tables/

Deadline

The deadline for entry is Friday April 20th 23.59GMT

Prize

Why did you think there would be a prize? Greedy. Well there is.

Any participant who wins and scores more than 60 points will win £60.

This is why they call it The Profit's Prophet

Later

After the Group Phase there will be a second-stage to this game for the Top 4 scorers only. Those rules will be announced later in the competition

Anyone

who asks me any question related to this competition (privately or publicly) will suffer Dishonourable Elimination. Editing is forbidden, even if you make a mistake.

And Finally...

Make your selections in this thread

Good Fortune

In your example above i guess the guy should get 3 points instead of 2. 2 points for correctly positioning loco luc and 1 point for having all top 3 correct but in wrong order ... please update.

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

The 1 point applies only if no selections are in the correct order.

Also, Dishonourable Elimination for editing a post.

I thought the eliminations were only for those who edited the names of the winners, not those who edit typos in questions

I haven't bothered calculating the max. amount of points, but I wouldn't be surprised if it would turn out to be 59.
