It just existing would be the greatest!!!!

In the past there was a problem with vg$ used as the main tool of who was doing the best.  It created a runaway situation where those who had more $ could bet more and new users could never catch up.  

It's why I appreciated all the work nordlead put into tracking different categories. Total winnings, winning ratio, accuracy, and overall ranking http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=26498

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...

Yep, that helps a lot! Thanks



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

Would be nice to also have hardware predictions.

Tag. This sounds fun. Will you be adding other similar formats for this, such as the E3 bingos and the like?

I feel like you intentionally chose an example week where you did well and I did terribly ^_-

I second PDF's concerns, and would add one of my own - it was actually really hard to not make a hefty winning each week, regardless of accuracy. Hopefully we can come up with calculations that balance incentivising people to take part with actually needing to be accurate to get a good pay-out.

By being slightly above the average prediction, you would indeed recieve a positive payout, so while you did make money there were people who were losing money.

We could look at the option to remove negative outliers that wont count towards the average for example don't count the 10% furthest off

 

EDIT : i'm going to take this week again

 

the interesting thing here is that Nights, DMC and the xbox 360 had an average of 0% accuracy so even with 10% accuracy on those you would get a payout, with a high bet about and for example 60% you could get a huge payout.

Which is what you probably remember.

The top predictor from this round put 1000vg$ on the xbox 360 and had an accuracy of 78% (vs. average 0% ) and 140 vg$ spread over the other options. His profit of 992 vg$ could just aswell be read, purely based on his xbox360 accuracy and bet amount
