Hey everyone! Now that Worlds group stage is almost ready to begin, we're reintroducing predictions! Previously we attempted to introduce them for MSI, but due to issues with Reddit's implementation of the feature we ended up having to cancel them prematurely.
Reddit has promised us that the issues we raised regarding thread spam have been solved, so we're ready to try this again!
What are predictions?
Predictions are a way for us to create polls with rewards. We'll be creating a prediction for every Worlds game, and you will be able to vote on who you think will win the match.
To participate in a prediction, you need to bet some of your tournament tokens. Everyone starts with 1000 tokens and can bet 10, 30 or 100 tokens on their choice. All bet tokens are combined in a shared pool and distributed among the players that chose the winning vote. If you guess correctly, you'll end up with more tokens than you started with. Guessed wrong? Those tokens are gone.
The only way to get tournament tokens is by winning a prediction. You can't buy them with coins or ask us to gift you some. Once you're out, you're out.
The three best predictors at the end of Worlds, as shown on the leaderboard of the prediction tournament, will be given some prizes. In particular:
- First place: Ternion All-Powerful Award (5,000 coins, 6 months of reddit premium)
- Second place: Argentium Award (2,500 coins, 3 months of reddit premium)
- Third place: Platinum Award (700 coins, 1 month of reddit premium)
We'll also give you a special predictor expert flair, to show off next to your name for years to come!
One prediction thread will be created for each regularly scheduled match. You will be able to vote on who you think will win the match up until the first match of the day starts. In order to prevent spoilers, we will only reveal the winner either 24 hours after the match has finished, or at the start of the next match day, whichever is sooner.
In particular, this is how it'll work: – Today (Sunday): All predictions for day 1 and 2 of Groups are published. – Monday, before the first game: Predictions for day 1 close, predictions for day 3 are posted. – Tuesday, before the first game: Predictions for day 1 are resolved, predictions for day 2 close, predictions for day 4 are posted. – Wednesday, before the first game: Predictions for day 2 are resolved, predictions for day 3 close, predictions for day 5 are posted. – etc
As a result, there will always be two days worth of games that you can vote on. You only get your winnings back once we resolve the threads (and previously there was some delay with Reddit in handing in the tokens), so make sure to distribute your tokens properly, or you may not have enough to vote on all games
Only regularly scheduled matches will be included. Potential tiebreakers will not receive a prediction thread. For best-of series, a single prediction will be created for the entire series (regardless of whether a team wins 3-0 or 3-2).
All predictions can be found on the subreddit predictions page (if you're on new reddit, there should be a tab on the main page saying "Predictions"). We'll also remind you to do your picks by stickying the prediction links in the live discussion threads for each day.
The predictions tournament feature is primarily supported on reddit mobile apps and new reddit. You will be able to vote on predictions on old reddit, but you may need to switch to new reddit to see the leaderboard.
The predictions for day 1 and 2 of group stage are now live! Head over to the predictions page to make your picks!
That is all! Please check leave a comment if you have any questions. Let the banter and hype begin!
