    DRAW INSURANCE NOTE

    The draw insurance is to protect your accumulator, two people tried to use it in round 19 when they'd lost in round 18.

    In future I will ignore the draw insurance request if the player isn't on a streak, even of 1.

    Also note that if you haven't used them by the final round in May, they are also useless as there will be no further weeks to protect your accumulator.

    This is a tough one for me this week because of the way the fixtures have fallen, so I am going to use my 2nd draw insurance: -

    QPR
     
  15. Wycombe with draw insurance
    Ps Otter I chose Cov last game with draw insurance see post #24 of fixture 19 thread which doesn't seem to be reflected above. Not that it makes much difference to my form :-(

    The draw insurance is to protect your accumulator, it doesn't gain you any points in case of a draw, mine is shown and all it did was keep my accumulator at two wins which were from rounds 17 & 18.

    See second post in this thread.

    Birmingham please.
     
  20. Thanks Otter. I've never really been sure how this works and how you get points - no idea what what the accumulator is and why it needs protecting, just enjoyed guessing who'd win. Think I'll drop out at this stage.

    The scoring system is that you get the square of the number of matches you guess correctly in a row. Then you sum the sets of runs of correct guesses.

    Feel free to continue if you wish.

    It's explained well in here.

    http://wfcforums.com/index.php?threads/prediction-league-scoring-system.57731/

    As Otter says, for the number of points square the number of correct guesses in a row (1=1 point, 2=4 points, 3=9, 4=16, 5=25 etc). If you select draw insurance and it is a draw, then you don't break the chain of correct guesses but it also doesn't count as a win. So win, win, draw (draw insurance), win, would count as 3 guesses in a row (3x3=9 points). If you correctly called the 5th match, then it would then count as 4 in a row (4x4=16 points). If you then lost the 6th match, you'd keep the 16 points, and would then try to go on another streak.

    As the points you get are the number of guesses correct in a row times by itself, you want to maximise your chain of correct wins. For example, 4 correct in a row and then a loss would give you 16 points (4X4)+(0), whilst 2 correct, one wrong, 2 correct would only get you 8 points (2x2)+(0)+(2x2).

    So essentially, the aim of this game is still to pick the correct team, but you just rewarded for going on a streak and getting a few right in a row (which is much more of a challenge and makes it more fun).

  24. Cheers chaps for the explanations - yes probably should have read this before as I'd have played it very differently so think I'll give it a miss now but thanks for organising Otter.
