Just a little feedback - as people should guess result after 90 minutes only and a true Football fan prefers to predict the real winner of a match (as this is what that sport is all about) no matter if in extra time or via penalty shootout - please consider adding the option to guess the the correct results after 90 minutes (and penalty shootout) - with additional points then for the Final 8 Round - more fun I would say, agreed?


There are more rounds, we will be changing the dynamic every round, but let´s not confuse people with this one, especially because so little time to make our prediction post and any change would wipe out any chance of most people.


ok, agreed! Thanks for replying.


@worldcup-russia, @blocktrades, @acidyo, @anomadsoul, I assume this score line is at 90 minutes and doesn't include extra time and penalties?
You should include that in the post to avoid confusion.


Yes, regular time. So there can be ties in regular time. I already included it, thank you for the observation.


what about if you want to predict a draw for a match. But the game doesn't result in a draw do you forfeit your chance to score points for selecting the winner of the match??? Or how would you like us to identify who we believe to be the overall victor of the match?

He Guys.
Hope I did it correct :

Looking forward for an exciting copetition.
The best of luck to you guys.

A. What form should be used?


B. Should the score be a final one, so no tie?

C. It should be possible to edit it before first match starts, isn't it? It was possible in group stage.


The score is the Final one in regular time. For example, if they finish 2 -2 in regular time, that is the correct prediction so yes, there is ties.



Hey @acidyo and @anomadsoul,,I want to participations in contest World Cup 2018 Russia,and here my picks:

Thank you very much..

Clarification, if I get the two correct end-scores of the two competing teams, does it mean I get 6 points each? Please clarify as there are some possible ways a player can earn the points without on your full mechanics.

Edit: Upvoted to be seen.


Good question! Ill be waiting for their reply too.


A correct score would be 3 - 1 and you get three points for that score.

How do we do if the game ends in shots at twelve steps? (penalties)


The score you must include is in regular time. Final score before the shootout. For example, if they finish 2 -2 in regular time, that is the correct prediction.

In the event the match goes to shoot out how should we expect our prediction to be recorded for accuracy?


Final score before the shootout. For example, if they finish 2 -2 in regular time, that is the correct prediction.


Actually, as far as I understood, not the score before shootout counts! It is the score after 90 minutes, which means before the extra time begins (after 90 minutes there will be another 30 minutes extra time before the penalty shootout takes place).


Regular time, exactly. 90 minutes


Lol! now I am really confused !😂😂😂


This should be explained in the above rules 9 to avoid confusion.

Good luck everyone and thanks for the competition again <3 This is my post for the Last 16:

let's do this again!
Here's my entry

Height of discrimination! it's very pathetic that some set of persons won't partake in this competition because the have a reputation lower than 40. How do you expect steemit to grow when some persons are left on the sidelines? Are there not better ways to checkmate bot comments? It's too bad that these set of people claimed to be proponents of equality and fairness. @blocktrades please do something about this.

Mi entrada, suerte para todos, editel post hoy 29/06/2018, por que olvide incluir el enlace a este anuncio.

Resteemed! and also @ocd-witness were voted as witness

Someone must give me a positive vote to make a huge entry. I have participated without accomplishing the rule of being 40 in reputation, so that was sucked a lot not being there as mandatory.

Great contest. Thanks for hosting this. Congratz to those who did so well on the earlier contest. Some games had really unexpected outcomes. Some, well actually a lot of games ended different from what I had expected lol.

Good luck to all!

I have to up my game this time around, I had 17points the other time, I need to go for gold now... lol

Well-done guys.

I really do not know why I could not find my name on the group stage points list even after following all the rules of the contest.

I hope something would be done about that and the same mistake not repeated in the knockout stages.

Submitted, Upvoted and Resteemed!

I just posted my picks, but I guess I must have tapped enter because I posted it before I had placed all tags, I had to edit because anyway I hadn't put the mypicks tag. Is my Post still valid?


Hi just wanted to ask if there is any way of checking how im doing so far like a post with entrants and their score so far im sure there is a few other wandering as well I'd sure upvote a post like that :)

Let's go !!

Here is my prediction entry.

Hope I did all the formating correct because the link which suppose to show a sample of @anomadsoul post didn't show anything.

Here is my prediction post

If I predict 3-1 for a match. How much point I will get if my one side matches after 90 mins?

good luck for everyone. We just predict the outcome of the game. If lucky survived if not lucky because your is not correct do not ups
