    So we have 8 groups of 5...

    Will we have 16 move on after the round robin?

    Will it be top 2 from each group...or top 16 scores overall?
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Yes, 16 move on to the KO phase. Top 2 from each group. The scores will be separated by groups as well.

    Re: World Cup Contest Questions

    Drop, I'm confused as to how I work who comes first and second in a group.

    I'll be making totally random score guesses for the individual game winners (cos I really have absolutley no idea who will beat whom).

    Do they get points for win, lose and draw to determine their placings?

    The World Cup gives 3 points to the winning team and 1 point each in case of a tie. Zero points if you lose.

    Two highest scores qualify first and second. There are deciders in case of a tie such as difference between goals scored and against. (but you're better off just guessing than trying to use these, it's like trying to determine the tiebreakers in the YEC )

    If we don't come in the top two of our group (and the top two actually make picks) ther would be no reason to do R16 picks right (other than for fun)?

    Re: World Cup Contest Questions

    If you predict a tie in R16, do you have to get the winner in PK shootout to earn the point??

    Since ultimately there are no ties, what you're predicting is which team wins. So in case of a "tie" you get 3 points if you correctly predict who wins the PK shootout and the bonus point for the correct regular + overtime score.

    Example:
    USA 2-2 Ghana, US wins in PK

    You only get three points if the US wins and the bonus point only if you get the correct tied score.

    Cool!

    So basically you are predicating which teams go through.
    And the score is just for the bonus.

    So if I predict Germany beat England 0-0 in PK
    and then if Germany beat England 1-0,
    I still got 3 points, right?

    ONe more thing,
    and the correct score is for 120 minutes?

    So if the match end up 0-0 after 90 mins
    and 1-0 after extra time.

    1-0 gots the extra bonus point?
