Welcome to the second installment of the Prophet League.
In this simple game we will attempt to predict the results of matches as they happen in the manga. Correct predictions will be awarded with a set amount of points depending on how close the prediction was to the real outcome. The winner is whoever has the most points by the end of the World Cup.
Please refer to this table to determine how to earn points:
Predict... Points <20% Team to advance. 2 5 Winner of a match. 2 4 Set count. 1 N/A Game count. 1 N/A Tiebreak score. 1.5 N/A
Matches in which one side forfeits are treated as [6-0, 6-0] victories for the opposing side.
I hope this is somewhat clear, but feel free to ask for clarification.
Furthermore, you don't need to specifically sign up to participate and you can skip out on any of the predictions without consequences (except that you won't earn any points from that round).
Lastly, you are allowed to change your predictions as often as you want (within reason, I don't want to see anyone spamming the thread), but only until a match has started.
Once a match has started or we've received any concrete information on the outcome of a match through spoilers or Konomi's twitter, you may not change your prediction for that match any more.
And that should cover everything. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
Good luck to everyone.

What does this mean? "Predict the winner (<20%)."
Also, are you going to have a category for the winning side in a national team matchup? I'm sure that we'll see some matches from the other teams, although we didn't really at all in PoT.
Watch Sherlock here and exploits the loophole of not setting a limit to a prediction, like he did with infinite muga XD.
Really, though. There should be a more clear rule on how much prediction you can set. Also, I think if anyone can predict unlikely things like, say, a dark horse team beating USA and Germany (which probably is unlikely to happen), months in advance, maybe 3-5, there should be extra props for that.
Or like Sengoku soloing the whole 1st stringer team.
I also would do a round by round (a nation vs nation) prediction winner and a overall winner. It gives people incentive to just win a "round" match when they just join and are like 20 points behind other people.
Also, can we get result for the 1st prophet league? I think the 1st post didn't change my prediction that I stated here,
so I seem to get 4 match's result right. But it'll nice to see the total points.

For match results there's already the 20% rule, we can increase the award for those predictions a bit though.
I mean for the user, not for the team. Like
For USA vs filler country
1. User X (Z Points)
2. User Y (W Points)
That kind of things. Like a "mini round" prophet league compare to the "overall world cup" league.
Ah, and about the "weird" prediction. Maybe prediction who vs who, more than X amount? If they're playing with 4 singles and 3 doubles, let's say you have to predict maybe 4-6 match up to get a point or something like that? Some of it might be obvious-ish, like Byoudonin and Echizen, but yeah.
Also, KO game by non power and violent players (that is actually easy to categorized) should be worth 2-3 points.

Updated the first post. Raised the point values a bit so that we have less decimals to deal with and adjusted the point values in the second post accordingly.
Also, I'm picking these teams for my WC participants prediction:
Russia, Egypt, Italy, England, India, Spain, Australia
Russia, Egypt, England, Spain, Australia, Serbia, India
Russia, Egypt, India, Spain, Australia, England, Argentina
Just to make it clear in case it isn't, you're free to predict any number of teams, just keep in mind that you're gonna lose points for incorrect predictions.
I'm guessing these doesn't include the obvious one aka Japan, USA, Germany, France?
