Prediction League what feature would you like to see incorporated?

Forums - Website Topics - Prediction League what feature would you like to see incorporated?

So for those that haven't asked for years to see this amazing competition returned and aren't familiar :

You use your vg$ to bet in our prediction games, 10 games and consoles/handhelds for example

and after this was calculated we had a ranking just like with any league :


the how to play from back in the day, this might also get some revisions based on suggestions

 

Now since there is still going to be some work on it we would like to know what you would like to see included!!!

monthly rounds, more overall standings, just name it and we will see what is within the scope of possibilities

...and for the record, this is a very ROUGH display - Kirby and I will be cleaning this up a bit, before it actually goes live. So, while I'm open to hearing about how we'd all like this to look, please don't just leave a "God, that looks ugly!!!" comment, as that isn't helpful at all.

We have only just started - this was purely brought over "as is" with 10yr old code... :)



Can I ask how it works precisely? How does the accuracy % determine the amount you win/lose on your bet?

Edit: Oh and is this for hardware too (since I find that more interesting) or just software?

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

The items with a broken icon are the wii, ps3, xbox360, DS and PSP, it generally is ten software and five hardware sales predictions.

Winnings are determined by your prediction accuracy. Prediction accuracy for a each prediction is calculated as the difference between your prediction and actual figure / actual figure. The prediction accuracy for each prediction is divided by the average accuracy across all users for that prediction and then this ratio is multiplied by your bet on that prediction

If you want to copy & paste the "how to play" page, that might help some people, too...

Maybe a way to do bets with specific people? Like you both bet a certain amount a money, then the person who is closer gets the amount? That may be prone to cheating though by people who make alts or want to throw their money at others.

hmm personal bets do sound fun

Yeah.



I like the sound of side bets, too!!!

I'll have to think on that one, though...
