jd82 What do you plan to do if you don't get an exact divisor of 32, DD?

How can we be sure the draw won't be rigged in your favour?


Because I will do a randomizer

and I need 2 more people for everybody to get 2 teams

if you stop being a massive bellend and join in then I need 1


I was more asking how we could trust you to not, for example, furnish me were I to join in with Qatar and Costa Rica?

and what will you do if more people want to join in closer to the time? it's still 7/8 weeks away, so maybe interest hasn't peaked yet?

I'm gonna run mine anyway, but it's entirely different to your in that it's not just pulling a name out of a hat. So i don't see why they can't run happily side by side.

How mine will run - just as i've done the golf ones for 2/3 years

Pick 2 Teams from each pot (4 pots decided by seeding/odds)

Scores will be based on finishing position in the World Cup
Winner - 0 points
Second - 3 points
Third - 6 points
Fourth - 8 points
Losing Q/F - 16 points
Losing R32 - 32 points
Losing Group Round - 64 points

A point will be taken off for each goal scored and added for each conceded at all stages. Normal and extra time both count.

1 point added for each yellow card, 3 points added for each red card

Eg - A team getting knocked out in the Q/F with an overall goal difference of +3, 4 yellows and 1 red would get 20 points

Lowest points total wins.


TLDR sounds biege and complex

I will be completely impartial and will even do the draw recorded if I have too or on zoom

Mine will be a REGULAR sweepstake like a normal person, not needing a maths degree to join

I can understand how picking 2 teams from each pot might be confusing to you, but it really isn't.
