ADMW Winter Special - Betting game
« on: March 06, 2017, 07:25:07 PM »
The first 3 games are already scheduled:



Keejchen vs. aridigas:  9.3 at 16 pm CET  (judge: schwenkgott)
jacksmack vs. powlich: 10.3 at 20:00 CET
Parkdeck vs. theasaris: between 13.3 - 17.3
My game with sharkbait isn't planned yet but I am available all the time :p

Now to the betting-game. I'm not sure if you are familiar with these Panini-booklets that are everywhere during a football world cup. Especially our American friends are probably not familiar with it... But basically before the first match in each round you "bet" who is going to win. And after the first round you count how many you've had right. And then you do it for the next round again. And  the one with the most right "bets" is the winner.
Since we don't have any prices (at least I don't have any :p) it's just for the fun. Buuut...  it is fun! :p
Obviously it is a bit awkward if I compete myself because I am a participant.. but oh well.. I'll survive it and that way I encourage the other participants to participate as well :)
And just to make it clear: Everyone is invited to participate!


Round 1:                       
keejchen vs. aridigas:      keejchen
parkdeck vs. theasaris:    parkdeck
schneeente vs. sharkbait: schneeente
jacksmack vs. powlich:     jacksmack

Loser bracket:
aridigas vs. theasaris:  theasaris
sharkbait vs. powlich:  powlich


And dear god, I hope nobody is offended because I assumed they'll lose. If anyone can't take this game how it is intended (as fun, let's see who will have the most points in the end) then please let me know. Post in this thread or via personal message and I'll ask a mod to delete this thread.


6 points as possible to get in the first round. And in total there are only 14 points to get. So this first round is pretty important for this betting-game at least :p

Winning imaginary internet points has always been important to me. I am a gambling man and this tickles my... Gambling nerve?   ;D

And of course I bet on myself, it might even make me more motivated to try hard, even though that sounds kinda silly.

Round 1:                       
keejchen vs. aridigas:      keejchen
parkdeck vs. theasaris:    parkdeck
schneeente vs. sharkbait: sharkbait
jacksmack vs. powlich:     jacksmack

The oracle has spoken!

Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Seems like I'm the underdog, but I'm not complaining. Less votes = less pressure! :)

Exactly my thoughts :D

There are still missing a lot of player's bets - but I am glad that nobody complained about the thread  8)
