The knockout stage is on! - Submit your entry to keep competing for the 2,000 SBD prize pool!

The world cup group stage finished a few minutes ago and we already know the matches for the round of 16

As you already know, @blocktrades loves to sponsor this type of community engaging projects and @anomadsoul & @acidyo know a lot of Steemians love this game, so we decided to organize this enormous Football World Cup event.

We have more than 1,800 valid entries and the competition is very close, no one is far ahead and everyone can still win, especially considering that for the knockout stage we will consider the correct score so people can earn more points per match.

France vs Argentina

Uruguay vs Portugal

Spain vs Russia

Croatia vs Denmark

Brazil vs Mexico

Belgium vs Japan

Sweden vs Switzerland

Colombia vs England

YOU HAVE TO USE THE NEXT TEMPLATE TO MAKE YOUR POST. REMEMBER THE TEAM NAMES MUST BE IN ENGLISH. WE RECCOMEND COPYING AND PASTING THE NEXT TABLE TO MAKE YOUR POST, JUST INCLUDE YOUR PREDICTION SCORES. THE SCORE MUST BE CONSIDERED WHEN THE 90 MINUTES END, SO THERE CAN BE TIES.

Just a little feedback - as people should guess result after 90 minutes only and a true Football fan prefers to predict the real winner of a match (as this is what that sport is all about) no matter if in extra time or via penalty shootout - please consider adding the option to guess the the correct results after 90 minutes (and penalty shootout) - with additional points then for the Final 8 Round - more fun I would say, agreed?

There are more rounds, we will be changing the dynamic every round, but let´s not confuse people with this one, especially because so little time to make our prediction post and any change would wipe out any chance of most people.

·
·

ok, agreed! Thanks for replying.

@worldcup-russia, @blocktrades, @acidyo, @anomadsoul, I assume this score line is at 90 minutes and doesn't include extra time and penalties?
You should include that in the post to avoid confusion.

·

Yes, regular time. So there can be ties in regular time. I already included it, thank you for the observation.

·
·

what about if you want to predict a draw for a match. But the game doesn't result in a draw do you forfeit your chance to score points for selecting the winner of the match??? Or how would you like us to identify who we believe to be the overall victor of the match?

He Guys.
Hope I did it correct : https://steemit.com/blocktradesworldcup/@manu17/the-blocktrades-world-cup-or-my-selections-for-the-last-16

Looking forward for an exciting copetition.
The best of luck to you guys.

A. What form should be used?

ScoreTeamvsTeamScore
1FrancevsArgentina2
1:2UruguayvsPortugal1:2

B. Should the score be a final one, so no tie?

C. It should be possible to edit it before first match starts, isn't it? It was possible in group stage.

·

The score is the Final one in regular time. For example, if they finish 2 -2 in regular time, that is the correct prediction so yes, there is ties.

👍👍👍

Hey @acidyo and @anomadsoul,,I want to participations in contest World Cup 2018 Russia,and here my picks:
https://steemit.com/blocktradesworldcup/@nurulfazillah/the-blocktrades-world-cup-or-my-selections-for-the-last-16-ba97b05974263

Thank you very much..

Clarification, if I get the two correct end-scores of the two competing teams, does it mean I get 6 points each? Please clarify as there are some possible ways a player can earn the points without on your full mechanics.

Edit: Upvoted to be seen.

·

Good question! Ill be waiting for their reply too.

·

A correct score would be 3 - 1 and you get three points for that score.

How do we do if the game ends in shots at twelve steps? (penalties)

·

The score you must include is in regular time. Final score before the shootout. For example, if they finish 2 -2 in regular time, that is the correct prediction.

In the event the match goes to shoot out how should we expect our prediction to be recorded for accuracy?

·

Final score before the shootout. For example, if they finish 2 -2 in regular time, that is the correct prediction.

·
·

Actually, as far as I understood, not the score before shootout counts! It is the score after 90 minutes, which means before the extra time begins (after 90 minutes there will be another 30 minutes extra time before the penalty shootout takes place).

·
·
·

Regular time, exactly. 90 minutes

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Lol! now I am really confused !😂😂😂

·
·

This should be explained in the above rules 9 to avoid confusion.

Good luck everyone and thanks for the competition again <3 This is my post for the Last 16: https://steemit.com/blocktradesworldcup/@datilla/the-blocktrades-world-cup-or-my-selections-for-the-last-16

Kindly note i didnt edit the score picks, i only edit title and some spelling wrong. Thank you

Here's my entry

Excellent contest

If I say there is a tie, I would get 3 points, no matter who passes?

·

There you go. But you have to be correct in the score tie to get three points otherwise you get one.

·
·

OK thank you so much TOCAYO

·

Really Moon :)

everyone can participate? even if they miss the first stage?
