    Re: WWE Predictions League: Season 8 (2018-2019) - Update Status: It's Complicated

    Alright, lads, here's what we're working with.

    Below is an updated spreadsheet with the current rankings and scoring averages as I know.



    yaaaay spreadsheets~!

    There's several things to take away from this.

    One, Thundercat's fucking acing it, good on him.
    Two, it's literally a point of difference in several ranking situations, so deciding whether you want to be more specific in the match finish is really making the difference.
    Three, probably the most eye-catching, there's a massive block of question marks for Chicago II & Money In The Bank. If y'all recall, it's around this timeframe that Order had to gracefully ride into the sunset, I took over his duties, and several of you tugged nervously at your collars. It's these two blocks here that have caused delays in having the prediction's league updated regularly.

    One way or another, when Order stepped down, his inbox with all your predictions for Chicago II & MITB stepped down too. The most likely reason for that is that once he relinquished his smodly duties, his inbox automatically shrunk to a regular user's inbox size, which would mean several of his PMs were automatically deleted. I assume most of those PMs included your predictions, thus making him or myself unable to edit in the results and rankings for those two shows.

    Right, so there's our reason for the delay, it's out in the open, the question is, what now? The way I see it, we have three options:
    1) Consider the ??? blocks, Chicago II & MITB, to be null and void, forget they ever happened, and move on. I suspect some of you might not be willing to simply brush aside those two events if you know your predictions were pretty spot on.
    2) Wait until Ed recovers the PMs though his admin powers and update it then. Unsure when that'll be.
    3) You lot can forward your predictions from Chicago II & MITB to myself, which would require trust and honesty on your parts. This will likely be a speedier solution, and once the PMs are recovered via Edward I'll cross-check them. Anyone caught fabricating their predictions for extra points will be have all their points from that round reverted to zero.

    Let me know what you think. I'd like to reign this league back into order and get it updated more regularly, but to do that we'll have to figure out what to do with those ??? rounds.

    This. Especially as it's so tight around my position.

    Double poi- Is that really a thing? I don't see it on the league rules post.

    I mean if enough people say so then sure, I can re-edit the tallys and rankings and add it officially to the rules post, I just had no idea it was a thing.

    Spoiler:

    this year's prediction league is going super well right guys

    Order did it for Summerslam, Survivor Seties, Rumble and Mania only.

    You just double the actual match points, not the bonus points.

    It’s noted at said PPVs Predictions in last season’s thread if you need clarity.

    Also season is going well considering the hiccup we have overcome.

    I just checked last season's thread, you're spot on. Righto, that's my bad. Tomorrow after work I'll update the match point predictions for SummerSlam. Got a feeling that'll shift more than a few standings.

    I didn't even know this was still happening which is why I missed out on some critical points awwwh man. Now I know and it's time to crawl back up the Standings.

    I guess I’m not doing too bad since this was the first time I participated. Takeover fucked me though. The only one I got right was the main event.

    Damn, I'm doing way better than I thought but that could easily change if we add in MITB and Takeover Chicago because I did not do so hot on MITB either. I really gotta stop trying to predict what I want to happen. But I'm good with option 2 or 3 as well. I'll send off my predictions from MITB and Takeover Chicago right away.

    Re: WWE Predictions League: Season 8 (2018-2019) - Update Status: It's Complicated

    Alright, so as it turns out Big 4 PPVs are worth double points in terms of match results. I wasn't aware of this until Sykotic pointed it out, so shoutout to him. I've edited and adjusted the spreadsheet - yaaay spreadsheet - to reflect this, which means...



    And our current rankings are...



    Thundercat's still acing it, bloody hell.

    I guess we've decided on option 3. If you previously sent in MITB & Chicago II predictions to Order, please forward them to me. Do not alter your predictions for extra points, I will be cross-checking them once our situation is resolved and anyone caught fabricating their predictions will have all points for that round reverted to zero. I'm putting trust in you lot, so please don't make me regret it.

    Re: WWE Predictions League: Season 8 (2018-2019) - Update Status: It's Complicated

    An update to the above: It's been brought to my attention that some of you may have deleted your MITB/Chicago II predictions after sending them to Order back when. Which is understandable, it's surprising how easy it is for those inboxes to get full, but it leaves us with another issue to address, namely that you can't forward your MITB/Chicago II predictions to me after they've been deleted.

    So. What do.

    Since we don't want to move on and forget those two rounds, one idea is to give a flat 16 points to everyone who claims to have send predictions in for MITB/Chicago II, one point for every match. Once the full extent of PMs are recovered, that number will be adjusted according to how accurate your predictions were. It's admittedly a bandaid over a gloryhole fix, but I'm open to other ideas if y'all have any for this particular instance.

    this league season is going fantabulous ain't it.

    It's gonna suck, but I think scrap those two shows now tbh.

    There's way too much reliance on people being honest in what is a surprisingly competitive league. Not a knock to anyone involved, but if we can't guarantee a fair and level playing field then we may as well move on.

    And I say this as someone who aced those two shows, so I know I'm potentially giving up a lot if points here.

    Yeah either Order will need to forward every prediction to you or we just need to scrap those shows and everyone gets nothing. I could easily have missed MITB but turnt around and said "yeah i defo predicted". Thats not to say anyone here would do that but Order is the only person with the proof and unless he has the time to prove it not one should get points for it.

    The selfish part of me says gomahrad and count them but the most sensible thing to do, and the right thing to do, is to scrap those shows unless Order forwards you the predictions he got in.
    There's just no way of guaranting that no cheating will happen otherwise. So to be fair, scrap them.
