SOTM 12 - A chance for some eleventh hour points...

Recommended Posts

A simple task for this week. Predict the weekend gross for any film this weekend that grosses above 5M for the 3 day.  

 

If your prediction is correct to within 5% you score 5000 points

 

If your prediction is correct to within 10% you score 2000 points

 

If your prediction is correct to within 15% you score 0 points

 

If your prediction is within 15.01-20% you lose 3000 points

 

If your prediction is within 20.01-30% you lose 6000 points

 

If your prediction is more than 30% out, you lose 10000 points.

 

If your predicted film fails to gross more than $5M, you lose 4000 points on top of any accuracy deductions (you cannot gain points for accuracy).  

 

If you predict 100% of your films to within 10% you score 1000 bonus points per film 

 

If you predict 100% of your films to within 5% you score 1000 + 2000 + 3000 and so on bonus points to the number of films predicted.

 

 

Abstaining wins you 2000 points

 

 

You may choose up to 8 films for this question. Deadline is same as the usual weekly questions deadline.  

 

 

For clarity, percentage will be Worked out based on the films actual gross not your predicted gross.

 

So if a film grosses $10M for the weekend, $9.5M is 5%, $9M is 10% and so on. 

 

It is not if you predict $9M then 9.45M is 5% and 9.9M is 10% and so on.

Hmmm... not sure whether or not I should participate in this one. It looks like fun, but I have so much to do tonight and I want to get around to the weekly questions, and try SOTM 3.

 

I'll abstain for now, just so that if I don't get around to it I still get me some 2000 points :)

God I actually feel bad about abstaining now... Chas has set this SOTM up for us and no one has participated...

 

s'okay, Just more extra points for me when  i crush it with my predictions tomorrow :)

 

 

Ithink people got burned by some of the earlier SOTMs a bit too much and its scary to risk taking part now.
