SOTM 14: The final question of the winter... well questions and then there is also the week 19 quest... damn it! It's a cool title I'm sticking with it. Deadline Thurs 11:59pm Feb 12th

    Recommended Posts

    As this is the final SOTM of the winter, I must endeavour to include as much mindfuckery as possible :)

     

    Here are 5 simple questions:

     

    1. What will Deadpool gross on Valentines Day?

    2. What will The Witch's OW be?

    3. What will Zoolander's total be by the end of the game?

    4. What will Kung Fu Panda's Worldwide total be by the end of the game?

    5. What will Risen make Opening Day?

     

    All you need to do is predict a value for each question. Simples...

     

    Wait that's no good I promised Mindfuckery and thus Mindfuckery I must deliver!!! But how? Yes of course an insanely, over elaborate hateful scoring system!

     

    There are 28 players who have contributed answers/predictions in some form during this game and thus it is possible for a players prediction to place anywhere from closest, to 28th closest. For each question you will score the following points based on how close to the actual total you finished:

     

    1st - 1000 points (That is not a typo :D)

    2nd - 0 points

    3rd - minus 1000 points

    4th - minus 2000 points

    5th - minus 3000 points

     

    6th - minus 4000 points

    7th - minus 6000 points

    8th - minus 8000 points

    9th - minus 10000 points

    10th - minus 10000 points

     

    11th - minus 12000 points

    12th - minus 12000 points

    13th - minus 15000 points

    14th - minus 15000 points

    15th - minus 15000 points

     

    16th - minus 18000 points

    17th - minus 18000 points

    18th - minus 18000 points

    19th - minus 18000 points

    20th - minus 18000 points

     

    21st - minus 20000 points

    22nd - minus 20000 points

    23rd - minus 20000 points

    24th - minus 20000 points

    25th - minus 20000 points

     

    26th - minus 20000 points

    27th - minus 20000 points

    28th - minus 20000 points

     

    (If two people predict the exact same value, the winner will be decided based on who predicted earlier. If any players do not post a prediction they will all gather at the bottom end of the points table for every question.)

     

    ABSTAIN, ABSTAIN, ABSTAIN!!! I hear you all cry and I would never take away one's right to abstain.

     

    In fact you may choose to abstain from as few or as many questions as you wish, all for the low low price of minus 5000 points :) (So for the mathemagicians amongst you that means to abstain from all 5 questions will score you minus 25000 points :) )

     

    Oh and one more little extra thing to sweeten the deal, anybody who ends the SOTM with a positive score, will receive a 50000 point bonus.

     

    Enjoy, deadline is Thursday at 11:59pm

    But seriously, I think the bonus received on getting away with a positive score in this one should be given a much bigger bonus. The guy who achieves this will have to answer all questions. Any abstain will mean it won't be possible even if the person comes first in all other questions. So you must attempt all questions and - 

    1) Come within top 2 in all answers; or

    2) Come first in 2, seconds in 2, third in one

    3) Come first in 3, second in one, fourth in one or third in two

    4) Come first in 4, fifth in one

     

    Doesn't it seem a task fit for like... atleast 50,000 points?

    Sure, why not :)

    I'm pretty sure I could offer twelve billion points and it likely won't factor in the question :)

    oh i think i read this right... if you only answer 2 questions and don't mention abstain for the other 3 it assumes you get the worst score possible for those questions...

     

    YOU MUST ANSWER EVERY QUESTION OR ABSTAIN "EVERY" QUESTION........ 

     

    am i correct @chasmmi

    That is true.  Although for kindness sake if somebody gives predictions for only 3 questions i will assume the other 2 are abstains and score them as minus 5k.

     

    People who don't predict at all though... :o

    So it's possible to lose 100,000 points, right, @chasmmi? (assuming you finish near the bottom for every question).

     

    Dear god almighty...

     

    I think the number of active players is 18, so even if you predict 12 trillion dollars for everything, it will only potentially be a 90k loss :)

     

    (Not possible for me though as I have a fool proof plan that will not fail for this SOTM :)
