PostSubject: World Cup   Mon Jun 07, 2010 4:20 am

I reckon it would be a good idea to have a world cup sweepstake, the person who picks the team that wins will receive a certain amount of UU from me. This is how it will go.

First of all I would like anyone who wishes to enter to say so on this thread.

I have made a list of numbers, 1 to 32, comprising each team in the world cup. Everyone who has entered by midnight on wednesday night (GMT) will get to pick some of these numbers depending on how many people participate. If there are any teams left over, either I get them, or if there are too many, someone picks those numbers for me. Obviously I can't pick my own numbers! You have my word that I will do this fairly.

The rules are:

Every game your team/teams lose, you give 50k UU to the person whos team beat you. Say if I got South Africa and Defdragon has Mexico and South Africa win, Defdragon has to give me 50kUU.

The person who's got the winning team will receive 100k UU from me, and from anyone else who wishes to donate too.

This should be good fun. Any questions/suggestions just ask.

We could really do with more people taking part.

If we don't get many more people, would you guys be ok with merging this competition with the one I'm also doing with my own alliance? Like that there would be more people and it would be much more fun

OK so here's how things will work:

if 5 people enter (which if we combine both alliances we have), then what I'll prob do is delete the worst 7 teams (from FIFA rankings) from my list and everyone will pick 5 teams each.
If 6 people enter, Same again, but I'll delete the worst 2 teams.
If 7 people enter, everyone gets 4 teams, and the worst 4 teams are deleted
But 8 people is the target cos then everyone picks 4 teams and no teams are deleted, so get more technocracy members involved!!

Just so everyone knows, these are the ranks of each team in the world cup (these do not correspond to the numbers on my list)

1) Brazil
2) Spain
3) Portugal
4) Netherlands
5) Italy
6) Germany
7) Argentina
Cool England
9) France
13) Greece
14) USA
15) Serbia
16) Uruguay
17) Mexico
18) Chile
19) Cameroon
20) Australia
21) Nigeria
24) Switzerland
25) Slovenia
27) Ivory Coast
30) Algeria
31) Paraguay
32) Ghana
34) Slovakia
36) Denmark
38) Honduras
45) Japan
47) South Korea
78) New Zealand
83) South Africa
105) North Korea

So if enough people play, you'd all best hope you don't get north Korea!! Remember the deadline is midnight people!!!!

OK guys, between our alliances there are a measly 5 of us taking part, so I'm going to put this onto the expansion board too. As a result I'm extending the deadline till 5pm GMT (19 hours and 30 minutes from now)

Killerbee you're not allowed to choose a country like that lol! I've got a list of numbers from 1 to 32 and after 5pm you'll have to pick some. Number 4 may not be netherlands! Good luck with finding them though! The list I put down was just the FIFA rankings. Nothing to do with my list.

So people who are currently in:

Technocracy:
Defdragon
Eea1067
Darkwolfe
Killerbee
Patron

Timescape:
Migstaxe
FinnWarlock
Krissu000

As we have my target number, I'm stopping any more entrants. Therefore, you may now pick 4 numbers between 1 and 32. These will be your teams. First come first served so get your numbers in now!!!! In case you're wondering, I'm getting the last 4 numbers no one has picked.

Good luck all!!!!!

Yep that's the point mate! Makes it more fun, anyone could get awful countries, but as we're picking 4 each it limits the amount of them you get (hopefully!)

Go on, pick 4!

fortunately, Hungary aren't in the world cup lol.

Nigeria are ranked 21st in the world, not too bad but certainly not the best. They could spring upsets...

I feel sorry for whoever picks north korea!!
