Prediction League Scoring System

    I had a PM from one participant asking how the scoring system works.

    To score points your chosen team must win.
    If your chosen teams win in consecutive weeks your current accumulator will be the square of the number of consecutive weeks.

    i.e. A player who gets a win 5 weeks in a row will get 25 points.

    When a choice fails to win your accumulator resets but you keep you points. The next time your choice wins you get one point.

    e.g.

    R1 Win => 1pt acc. 1pt total.
    R2 Win => 4pts acc. 4pts total.
    R3 Lose => Acc reset, 4pts total.
    R4 Win => 1pt acc. 5pts total.
    R5 Win => 4pts acc. 8pts total.
    R6 Win => 9pts acc. 13pts total.
    R7 Lose => Acc reset, 13pts total.
    R8 Win => 1pt acc, 14pts total.

    etc.

    If you forget to play, your accumulator will be reset.

    There are two other things, (1) for those who did well in Last Man Standing (LMS) there are some fixed bonus points.

    Draw insurance. Use when in a good accumulator.

    From the above example:
    ...
    R6 Win => 9pts acc. 13pts total.
    R7 Draw (with insurance) => Accumulator remains at 9, 13pts total.
    R8 Win => 16pts acc, 20pts total.

    How to use the Draw Insurance

    In any given round, simply name your choice as such: Preston (DRAW INSURANCE)

    If your chosen team wins anyway you get the accumulated points, if your choice loses your accumulator gets reset.

    The draw insurance is effectively useless when your accumulator is on zero points, and in the final round of the season it won't make any difference.

    Hopefully that's clear.

    Thanks, but I think you might need to be a gambling man to fully understand this :) I'll just pick my teams and leave the calculations to you me thinks :confused:
