TrueWoW's Euro2016 Football Prediction Competition!

#1 » Post by Gnurg » 22 Jun 2016 18:58

I understood that quite a few of our players are interested in the European Championship in Football. With that in mind, I thought we could have a competition where we try to predict the outcome of the playoffs. For now, I don't have any prize planned, but if anyone feels like donating some prizes that would be much appreciated. The contest will start from this Saturday (25.06) and will conclude soon after the final match (10.07). Make sure you submit your prediction by Saturday though!

The bracket can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2016#Bracket

You're in so many groups already, but the MVP one should fit you as well

Before you get run down with reason why I shouldn't be, I'll just say: No, I shouldn't be. -- So no need to comment back to this!

Rather submit the teams you predict will make it big in the tournament! :)

Bump! Don't make me the only contender, submit your prediction. No need to know anything about the teams (I don't), just give it a try. The more in on the competition the more exciting it will be.

Deadline is in 2 days.

Retired - Sadly I can't agree with cf bg's being a good choice for the server. The only thing we got with this feature is less bg's nowadays and less people online and I can't participate in this big mistake.

I don't watch that eagerly neither have much of an idea of how the european championship works ;< but ye there's my prediction! :D

I'd say that trying is the best one can do in order to higher themselves from the people crying and only complaining. Whilst you try, it doesn't mean it is always going to be the most successful result but I'd like to think that it is still a better choice than standing idle.
