    WC Announcements

    In this thread I'll be making any important announcements such as deadlines as they come up.

    To begin with, I would like to make a correction: the World Cup Contest will NOT be awarding medals.
    If anyone wishes to withdraw please let me know, though I hope not and that we may all have fun in playing.

    ! The third-fourth place match-up will still be played for bragging rights though.

    Entry deadline: June 1st. On that day I will raffle the groups and open the prediction thread/s.


    The following are PREDICTION DEADLINES:

    First deadline (FOR ALL CONTESTANTS)
    June 11 kickoff (South Africa time to be posted)


    Second deadline (for KO phase qualifiers ONLY)
    June 26

    Quarterfinal deadline (for those who won their R-16 matchup)
    July 2

    Semis (for the final four)
    July 6

    Match for Third place (for the losers of the semis only)
    July 10

    Final
    July 11



    Also, here is a link to the entire list of matches (dates and places) for those who want/need to do some research. I suggest that all those unfamiliar with the WC to take a look at it.

    R-16 begins THIS Saturday, so EVERYONE be prepared to submit predictions SOON.

    Later today we'll post the schedule.

    I thought only players finishing in the first two positions get to play in the next round. Not so?

    Yes, but because there would be less than 24 hours between the end of the First Round and the R16 starting, we plan to open up the thread early.

    Good, because my chances of being on computer during that window, should I be among the lucky ones, are close to nil (in Wimbledon I will be )

    Around this time tomorrow we will open a thread for predictions of the R-16 matches to be played on Saturday and Sunday.

    EVERYONE SHOULD POST THEIR PREDICTIONS, QUALIFIED OR NOT. (we will later discard those that did not qualify)

    That means that before Saturday everyone should at least have posted 4 predictions (two matches on each day during the weekend).

    R-16 MATCHES PLAYED ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY: AS SOON AS WE POST FINAL RESULTS ON FRIDAY AFTER THE LAST MATCH, THOSE WHO QUALIFIED CAN BEGIN TO SUMBIT THEM.

    !We will also ask the third person in each group to submit predictions in case someone fails to show up.

    I've added Monday's R-16 matches for predicting.

    Re: WC Announcements

    The last two R-16 matches have been added. (note that the Paraguay - Japan match is actually on Tuesday, so beware of double predicting that and missing Brazil - Chile on Monday)

    Re: WC Announcements

    Quarterfinal matchups have been posted and a separate thread for the QF predictions has gone up.

    Good luck everyone! Remember they're due before Friday!
