Editing your numbers in the prediction league doesn't work. You can change them, but upon trying to save the changes it failsbut luckily we have a manual workaround if you go to the main predictionpage ( https://www.vgchartz.com/predictions/index.php ) and enter as if you haven't entered before you can edit your prediction and here it will save!

Hi @kirby007 Thanks again for this fun activity. I was wondering if you can help me understand the rules for the payouts. I am a bit confused with the results this week.

What I understand is that the way to calculate winnings is that for each console you do (myAccuracy/averageAccuracy)*myBet. Maybe that is where I am wrong, but based on that here is what I get for my winnings and your winnings:

As you can see, based on my calculation, my winnings would be $54 and your winnings would be $1423. This differs greatly from the actual results:

I am not being able to determine how it is calculated that my winnings are $21, do you mind helping me understand?

Thank you for your work, I really enjoy these prediction leagues, and hopefully we will have a new one soon.

@dmillos good question, if i recall correctly the system has an cap which looks at the amount bet and puts in a max based on that.
maybe one of the siteadmins can confirm that by looking at the per console paid behind the front? @Machina @TruckOSaurus @TalonMan

if not I'll have a dive in !! https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/26498/prediction-league-top-earners/ !! do note this is old

Hi @kirby007 thanks as always for the prediction league, I am excited about the next couple of predictions.

As you know, the last Japanese prediction was extremely off for everyone, this created a pretty weird scenario of 0% accuracy. @Machina @TruckOSaurus @TalonMan is it possible to see the math behind the payouts? They seem a bit off, I am sure that the low accuracy numbers are throwing everything off. But I feel that it could be useful to double check those rules, as they give me the impression of always rewarding higher bets no matter how accurate they are as well as limiting the winnings due to the "infinite" nature of how payouts are calculated. A zero sum game sounds like it could be very interesting and prevent the "infinite" scenarios.

Thanks for everything



I don't know the math behind the league - it was all done by Talon (and I expect he based it largely on the original PL from way back). Since I'm not a coder I can't look it up either, tho I imagine Talon and Trucks can.
