With the increasing interest in prediction contests on these forums, I would like to introduce another for everyone’s favorite offseason.
Players compete to correctly predict which teams will be invited to the 2018 Indiana Robotics Invitational.
The winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card (as long as there are at least five submissions).
Indicate which teams you expect to be accepted to IRI using this Google form prior to May 21st: https://goo.gl/forms/gGdGFCqBSdVpn2Eh2
Submissions on or after May 21st will not be scored.
Submissions that do not include Chief Delphi usernames will not be scored.
Only one submission (the most recent) will be scored for each participant.
All players will be ranked by their submissions. The first sort is number of correctly predicted acceptances and rejections, from greatest to fewest. Ties will be broken using the following criteria:
- Number of correct predictions on the team (or teams, if there are multiple with the same) with the lowest correct prediction rate.
- Absolute value of the difference between predicted number of teams invited and actual number of teams invited (smaller is favored)
- Timestamp (earliest submission wins)
The player ranked #1 is the Winner.
Disclaimer: my decision regarding the interpretation of any of these rules is final. I reserve the right to modify the rules and scoring criteria at any time.
