  • PPV Pick Em

    Just an idea I'm throwing out here. We could include WWE and TNA PPV's. I'm sure everyone should know how it works, but for those that don't, here goes:

    Everytime there's a PPV, WWE or TNA will release a card (the matches). Your job is to pick the winner of each match. If you correctly guess the winner, you get one point. If you guess wrong, there are no points deducted.

    Points will be tallied from WrestleMania 23 to WrestleMania 24. This game is just for fun, there is no material prize other than bragging rights amongst fellow members.

    All of your predictions MUST be submitted before the PPV begins. If you submit anything after the PPV begins or you edit your picks after the PPV begins...THEY WILL NOT BE COUNTED!

    If I get a fair number of people willing to participate, we can get this thing rolling and start with WrestleMania 23 as matches are announced!

      I have no problem doing this at all actually. On another note, I'd like your input on something: Should we include WWE and TNA PPV's, or just one of them?

          Thanks. I just figured since everyone here is very opinionated about WWE and TNA's booking and figure it's so predictable, with this we can prove "who's who" with the predictions.

            the problem is i dont know how many ppl are going to participate, it may be less then 10 lol

            i think we should just start with the WWE, especially with WM23 soon.

            well the problem with the WWE is that there will be a lot of countouts and DQs, so it will be hard to predict...i play the Pick Ems on the ROH board and its way "easier" cause all the matches almost have clear cut winners.

              I'm no good at predicting the matches, but who will win, I might be good at. If it were up to me, Cena, Batista and Lashley would all drop their titles this week and be subjected to the same treatment that Eugene receives. That or fire them

                Less than 10 is good in a way, less stats to worry about and more dedicated participants to come back. I've been involved with Pick 'Em's that people would start and discontinue afterwords, which is really annoying.

                    Current Season Standings
                    Balzter - 14
                    Metaphysical - 13
                    Big Jim - 11
                    etc
                    etc
                    etc

                    After two PPV's, the Standings board would look similar to that. Also, I'd like to add a rule that any posts or edits after the PPV's begin won't be counted for.

                      Rules For "PPV Pick 'Em"

                      - Each PPV has a card (the matches). Your job consists of guessing the winners of each contest.

                      - Points are awarded with correct predictions. Points will not be awarded, nor deducted, for incorrect guesses. Example: If you get 5 of 6 correct, your score is 5.

                      - If a match ends by pinfall, submission, DQ, or countout, you will get awarded points for a correct guess. This only applies if there is a standout winner.

                      - Matches that end in "no contest", meaning no clear winner, points won't be added, nor deducted, to your final score.

                      - All of your final picks must be submitted before the PPV begins. Any edits or late entries (after the PPV begins) will not be counted for. This eliminates cheaters.

                      - After every PPV be sure to look for Pick 'Em results threads with Current Leaderboard and PPV results.

                        Good thing we didn't do this for the rumble, pretty much everyone would have gotten at least 4 out of the 5 right.

                          In a situation like that, I'd award bonus points for guessing some of the following:

                          - Entry #1
                          - Entry #30
                          - First Elimination (who gets eliminated first)
                          - Winner

                            everything is fine except the scoring, its too simple...here ima show u how they do it on the ROH boards, its easy and gives the game an extra dimension

                            FICTIOUS CARD:

                            Edge vs. HHH
                            HBK vs. Umaga
                            John Cena vs. Randy Orton
                            MNM vs. Highlanders
                            Mickie James vs. Maria
                            RVD vs. Lashley

                            6 MATCHES
                            U PICK THE WINNER
                            AND ASSIGN POINTS FROM 1 TO 6 FOR EACH MATCH

                            example:

                            Edge (2)
                            Umaga (1)
                            Cena (6)
                            MNM (5)
                            Mickie (3)
                            Lashley (4)

                            SO NOT ONLY DO U HAVE TO GUESS THEM RIGHT BUT U NEED TO ASSIGN THE MATCHES POINTS ON HOW SURE U ARE ON THE WINNER.

                            so lets say i get them all right i get 21 points

                              That sounds a bit complicated and it rules out the aspect of a true leaderboard. With my way, you know exactly how many correct you've guessed at the end of the season. With your way (the ROH board way, LOL), there'd have to be a lot of research to figure that one out.

                              Edit: I just re-read what you posted and I like it. The only problem I have is the fact that you demanded that I did all of the work with the scoring and whatnot. Assume 100's of people participate, that's way more work than I prefer.
