  • NSB Pick 'em 2018 Redux

    Ok. This is hopefully the new and definitive Pick 'em thread for 2018, started due to the prolonged absence of 2017 POTY BrometheusBob.. The aim is to make the game a bit more robust by having the tables accessible to a small team rather than relying on a single poster to do all the work, cos... well... **** happens. For now the three posters making up the PICK EM CREW are Koba-Grozny , siablo14 and john l with Brometheus Bob welcomed back in an honourary capacity, although we are definitely looking for 1 or two more to make up the team, so apply on this thread or by PM if you reckon you can help out a bit.

    What else? I think for now we're gonna to go with the original 20/5/5 scoring although the proposed change to 20/7/3 will certainly be considered for the future. Also, for the time being at least, we're reverting to the original format for making picks and omitting a poll: ie: USER WINNER METHOD DETAIL MULTIPLIER(if used), eg. KOBA RUNGVISAI DEC CLOSE 2x.

    Firstly, as observed by Siablo14 that will tend to reduce the number of casual players involved (and lessen our workload) and secondly means that we don't have to be on call at the start of each pick 'em fight because the picks will be time stamped, preventing any late picks. Again, the possibility of reintroducing the polls can be discussed as we go forward, but for now the primary goal is to get this ish moving again.

    Now, all that remains is for me to send a request to BIGPOPPAPUMP to wave his magic wand and drop the original Pick Em 2018 leaderboard and rules post into this thread and I think we're good to go...

    And like I said above - if you think you can help at all please PM me or Siablo14 or post your intent in the thread.

    **These picks were not added to the score and do not affect rank.
    ***Novelty fight worth half points


    Prize:
    TBA

    Introduction:
    This is a year long boxing match prediction league based on a contest from BoxRec. The idea is to try and consistently predict the winners of fights, especially big fights or hard to predict matchups.

    Previous winners:
    2017 - RockyB

    Ground rules:
    - Prior to each fight, a new thread will be made for the purpose of allowing people to record their predictions.
    - Predictions must be made prior to the start of the fight
    - You do not need to make a prediction for every fight to stay in the game, but obviously you will receive no points if you do not pick.

    Terminology:
    RESULT METHOD
    KO = Will cover all type of stoppage wins - TKO, KO, DQ
    Decision = Will cover all type of decision wins - UD, MD, SD, TD

    RESULT DETAIL
    If you picked KO, either EARLY (1-4), MID (5-8) or LATE 9-12. (Or 1-3, 4-6, 7-10 for a 10 rounder).
    If you picked DEC, either 'CLOSE' or 'WIDE'.

    CLOSE = Total score difference is less than 12 pts or less
    eg. closer than 116-112 on all three cards or closer

    WIDE = Total score difference of >=12 pts
    eg. Equal to or wider than 116-112 on all three cards

    If the fight is a 10 round fight or ends in a technical decision, the cutoff line of 12 pts is scaled down to the number of rounds fought.
    eg WIDE for a 10 round fight will be equal to or wider than 97-93, 97-93, 96-94.

    MULTIPLIER
    Every player will have the option to use multipliers throughout the game when they feel especially confident of their prediction. It can also allow players who joined late an opportunity to get in the game by scoring a big pick.

    2X = Get twice as many points for this prediction. You will have five of these in the game.

    3X = Get triple as many points for this prediction. You will three of these in the game.


    How scores/rankings will be updated
    After each fight, your score for that fight will be calculated as follows:

    Correct Fighter = 20 pts
    Correct Method = 5 pts
    Correct Detail = 5 pts

    Wrong Fighter = 0 pts

    Draw = If you correctly pick a draw, you will win 120 pts. Everyone else will get 0.

    The total of above results in your BASE SCORE. Your BASE SCORE for a fight will multiplied by all applicable multipliers / bonuses.

    Bonus multipliers will be made available for fights with a 5/1 or wider favorite. The amount of the multiplier will be the odds for the favorite divided by 4, up to a max of 3x. (eg 5/1 favorite = 1.25X bonus on the underdog)

    I reserve the right to make exceptions to the above.

    Other Details
    -Score and rankings updates will be made within 24 hours after a fight. (lol, hopefully anyway)
    -Rankings will include number of remaining multipliers you have left.
    -If you attempt to use a multiplier that you do not have, I will use the highest available multiplier that is less than the one you tried to use. For example, if you say 2X without any 2Xs left, I will treat it as a 1X play. If you use a 3X without any 3Xs left, I will try to use a 2X.

    NEW:
    -Changed the margin of close and wide by 1 pt based on discussion from last year. Now 116-112x3 (such as in Garcia-Guerrero) will be wide rather than close.
    -There will be 3 3x and 5 2x multipliers this year
    -The AI will choose the favorite like before, but choose decision or KO based on which is more popular and use multipliers in fights where multipliers are used the most.
    -I am looking into ways to crowd source which fights should be included in the game and which shouldn't. Especially from the regulars of last season. Any suggestions on this appreciated.
    -Leaderboard will have streaks, as well as number of perfectly correct picks.
    -Changed the KO pick terminology from round numbers to words: ie EARLY, MID, LATE to prevent potential confusion from non-standard round ranges being picked (ie 4 - 8, 5 - 9 etc)

      Yup, that's the plan. Just waiting on BIGPOPPAPUMP to move the leaderboard over and then one of us will aim to get it updated with the Groves -Eubank and Rungvisai - Estrada results.

                No clue, man. Dude posted for the first time in a week last Sunday to thank Siablo for his work last weekend and then nothing since. I tried PMing him before I started trying to pull this together and I think a coupla other people have too, but it's like he dropped off the earth... just hope he's doing OK whatever the hell he's up to, strikes me as a good dude does BroBob.
