    Remember, even if you get a poor team for the sweepstake, you can still make up points in the parallel competitions.

    Good luck all!

    Well I reckon Iceland have got just as much chance as England at this stage ( at least they can do their own trade deals:naughty:).

    I know its only fun but I can't see the the ones who have teams who are certs to be knocked out in the group stages to have any chance of making up 50 odd points against the ones who have drawn the big teams. This should be separate from the overall points total in my view to the category and score prediction part.
    I did the category bit then had a look at the points structure and can see I have no chance unless I have a crystal ball so wont bother with the score predictions.
    Good luck to those who have drawn the decent teams.

    Your first 5 words sum it up. Plus, them's the breaks with a sweepstake. I have bugger-all chance of winning with Sweden but will still do the "extras" because it's a bit of fun. Plus if everyone had that attitude it would be a bit miserable, not
    least for miked who's gone to a lot of effort. But horses for courses, etc
     
  12. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    My Czech Rep have a good chance of getting out of the groups. Could they even sneak 1st with a couple of draws and a win? Depends if Spain turn up.

    QF is questionable if they finish 2nd as it's almost definitely Belgium or Italy in the last 16!

    One of the 'best 3rd places' and it will be either A1 (France?) or B1 (England?!)

    I think Italy will disappoint this tournament. Spain have looked very up for it in the friendlies so far and I think they've made good choices in their tournament team, i'd back Spain to beat Italy if it came to it. Surprised how many people are saying Albania to finish with the fewest points though, I actually think they can take Romania and maybe scrape a 3rd place finish.
     
  14. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Yeah but Italy probably should get 2nd in that group meaning their last 16 is F1 which doesn't look particularly challenging. You'd potentially be better coming second in Group E.

    If this was their route then the QF would be B1/3ACD. Could well be England v Italy QF.


    EDIT: Just seen that if we come 2nd we only have to play F2. Seems a bit unfair that 2nd for us and F get away with a 2nd place finisher. Won't complain if it's us!

    The points will be broken down into the 'skill' based games and the sweepstake.

    A sweepstake is generally the only competition. If you get a crap draw, tough. If you get a good draw, you have a shot.

    The aim of the games was to have fun, but also to be able to partially counter some of the inherent imbalances in the sweepstake. If you get Switzerland for instance and get lots of points elsewhere, you can still win the skill section, and then also have an outside shot of winning the overall competition.

    In the same way, I have made the worst team in the whole competition get as many points in the sweepstake as the quarter finalists I believe. You just have to hope that Hungary lose convincingly :)
