Thanks for the prizes!....:)...

I still can't believe I managed to cling to the podium! Congrats again to @bidbots and to @chehkuna for 1st and 3rd place! And congrats to all participants too! I actually thought that towards the end clear positions would emerge but no, the only one who had a clear position was @bidbots and only at the very, very end. It was fun to the last match, the world cup itself also had many interesting turns!

Most of all thanks to @good-karma, @lukestokes, @arcange, @roelandp, @drakos, @stoodkev and @yabapmatt for funding this contest. And to the people who I understand were working behind the scenes for Steemitboard: firstly @arcange again, and also @techybear and @captaink! It must have been a lot of work especially with all of us asking "WHUR MUH BADGE" haha. I personally didn't have any problems, all the badges were there not too long after each match.

:D

Outstanding! Everyone involved deserves a big "Hell Yeah!" Big prizes, lots of participation, daily activity and involvement, simple to play, no scammy rules or spammy behaviors, friends made, free badges, awesome artwork, sports camaraderie, healthy competition on an equal playing field, excellent contest management, timely results, and the rewards for everyone was a pleasant surprise. I could not ask for anything more in a contest, and I can't think of anything I would have changed, other than perhaps adding a little bit more time to allow people to place their bets. I think you guys did the best you could, and I appreciate how humble the responses were to people making requests or saying dumb things.

This was the single most worthwhile event on Steemit I have experienced since I started a year ago. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this so great!

This was a great contest! And very easy to participate in! Congrats on that! I'm a bit bummed out that i saw your contest after a few games were already completed. But was very happy to participate in it! Hope to see something similar in the future with other tournaments! :)

Congratulations on such a well-run contest and community engagement program on Steem! I'm proud to have supported this event and I hope many people enjoyed participating. I was hoping to vote on more matches myself, but I've been quite busy and haven't been watching the games! :)

Thank you for supporting this contest .. You will have another opportunity to win the first place on another occasion.

It was great to paricipate @lukestokes ! I forgot about voting on some matches, and managed to get 27 badges. It was nice to play.

Thanks for supporting this great initiative!

Regards, @gold84

I think I won 34 badges. Thanks @archange for creating this awesome contest. Also thanks to @steemitboard with others sponsors @good-karma, @lukestokes, @roelandp, @drakos, @stoodkev, @yabapmatt. Waiting for another great contests for upcoming cricket world cup.

Thanks to all

Congrats to @bidbots, @tychoxi and @chehkuna for being in the Top 3! It wasn't an easy World Cup to predict at all, so well done for getting the badges that you did.

Also, a massive thank you to @steemitboard for organising the contest and last, but not least the sponsors: @good-karma, @lukestokes, @arcange, @roelandp, @drakos, @steemitboard (again), @stoodkev an @yabapmatt! Cheers for bringing an extra spice to the World Cup! It has been an exciting month and we cannot wait for the next competition (Asian Cup 2019?!...hahaha)! :D

wow, I earned myself 1.86 SBD . This contest is win-win for everyone. Great concept and great engagement @steemitboard

congratulations for your third place.

You deserve more congratulations.

We all have to congratulate ourselves because we are all winners although some won more and others won little but in the end we are winners. This undoubtedly was an entertaining competition because it made you think about what team to bet so as not to lose positions and be aware that your nearest opponent bet so that you do not get everything is based on luck and extrategia and obviously knowledge of football.

Awesome contest guys!! Great thanks to you, the sponsors and the participants!

Thanks so much for organizing this contest. It was super fun and all together it connected the amazing steemit community. Let's do those contests more often in the future, but with more help from the community, since I could imagine how much hard work was put in to organize all this. Really appreciate it. Thanks also to all the sponsors.

Thanks @steemitboard! It was a real pleasure to have participated in this contest, we will see you next...
Congrats to all winners!

Wow awesome thanks @steenitboard it was fun😋😋

Sorry @steemitboard but the allocation of sbd is very poor... how can the 4th 5th 6th ..... 10th take so low ... though I'm not among them I got 28 badges (even though I didn't play some of the time) I just have to complain for users in that category... they achieved a lot but got so little...that's bad !!!

The rules were clearly stated and each participant, when registering, accepted these rules. You find them unfair, why not mention it earlier?

In essence, contests are generally unfair. It is often only the top 3 (sometimes only the first - winner take all) that are rewarded. For the others: nothing!

In our case, all participants who correctly guessed the outcome of a match received something.

Now, let's do some math!

Only 35% of the prize pool was allocated to the top 3 winners.
The remaining 65% was distributed to all other successful players, based on their score.

The registration cost was 0.010 SBD
The reward for 1 collected badge is 0.060 SBD
That's a 600% return if you were smart or lucky enough to guess the result of a single match, even if you are at the very bottom of the ranking.

You want to us give way more to the 4th 5th 6th ..... 10th rank.
OK, then please tell us how much will be left for the lowest ranked players?

Do you still consider it as "bad !!!" or unfair? Make your own contest with your own rules!

I agree. Great contest. Lots of fun, but the prizes aren't being distributed well. At least have joint third place. Very unfair to those who scored 41 and are in 4th and 5th place.

I don't think so, the reward is fair. Just as every contest has a rule so does this. Beside the persons in that position did not state out a complain. I remember reading a post from the board on how the 3rd position will be selected , which is a sign of transparency.

it was very easy and a nice contest. thanks to @steemitboard and @arcange for such a lovely contest. And congrates to @bidbots @tychoxi @chehkuna and all the participants for their great work..

Congratulations to all winners! Received with thanks on my part! (^.^)V

hi, steemitboard, Why I can't find my account ranking in your website. I have joined in few matches in this contest. And I commented the winner team in few matches. But finally I have no rewards on it and no ranking about my account. Can you help me for check for it? Thanks

Congras to winner....!!!

mmmm ... the world cup is over and I really like the contest you made this. I hope this contest continues even though the World Cup is over. yes for example a very powerful contest is taking one of the top European leagues. I'm sure the steemians will also be very happy if @steemitboard will make a contest for one of the top European leagues.

how to be winner and what the task to be done

It was a great competition! And participation is very easy! Congratulations! I bummed out a bit that I saw your competition have already been completed after a few games. But happy to participate in this! Expect to see similar in the future with other competitions! :).......
