SOTM 3 - Alien vs predator vs engineer vs replicant vs marine vs the world - Deadline Thursday May 18th 11:59pm

Recommended Posts

The Final SOTM with a May deadline (SOTM 4 will be for June 1st :D)...

 

Below are 8 questions each pitting Alien covenant vs a film set (to some degree within the same universe, although I admit one example is stretching this a lot)

 

1. Will Alien Covenant have a higher OW than Alien vs Predator ($38.29M)

2. Will Alien Covenant's Midnight's be higher than Alien's OW ($3.52M)?

3. Alien Covenant's Domestic total pass Alien Resurrection's Total Domestic gross ($47.79M) within its first 10 days of release ?

4. Will Alien Covenant's 2nd weekend gross be more than half of Blade Runner's Total Domestic Gross ($16.43M)?  

 

5. Will Alien Covenant's WW total overtake that of Aliens' WW total ($131.06m) the the end of the weekend?

6. Will Alien Covenant have a higher opening Sunday than Alien 3's Total UK Box Office ($12.76M)?  

7. Will Alien Covenant have a better 2nd weekend drop than Prometheus (59.4%)?

8. Will Alien Covenant have a higher second Saturday gross than Alien vs Predator Requiem's total gross in Mexico ($5.19M)

 

Every answer is a simple yes or No. You may answer as many or as few as you like. 

 

Scoring is as follows:

 

Every Correct answer - 10,000 points

If you answer at least 3 questions and score 100% correct answers, increase your score by 50%

 

1st incorrect answer - minus 4000 points 

2nd incorrect answer - minus 8000 points (cumulative so on top of the 4000 lost for the first incorrect answer)

3rd incorrect answer - minus 12000 points 

4th incorrect answer - minus 16000 points

5th incorrect answer - minus 20000 points 

6th incorrect answer - minus 24000 points 

7th incorrect answer - minus 28000 points

 

Get all 8 incorrect - score 225,000 points  (but you have to be nuts to try this)

 

You can abstain for 3000 points. There is no punishment for not posting in thread. 

 

Deadline is Thursday 18th at 11:59pm

 

Enjoy

Just so im reading this right

 

The incorrect answers is minus the points I gain from correct answers?  Or if I get one wrong I only lose points?

 

That'll change how many I'll want to answer

If you answer 6 and get 4 correct and 2 incorrect your score will be 4 x 10,000 - 4000 - 8000 = 28,000 points

 

So i you answer all 8, you need to get 5 wrong to start losing points. (4 wrong will score you exactly 0). 

 

Obviously 8 wrong is where the big money is at, and I remember that classic Independence day question of yore, where we were all so bad at the questions, half of us ended up qualifying for the 'everything wrong' bonus by accident.

so if you get all 8 correct do you get 225,000 points too??  because getting all 8 incorrect is getting the questions correct for being incorrect so it is 100% efficiency?

oh, i see!  its only for all 8 incorrect because that is a bigger gamble.  One may think, "hey, i think I got this and Im going 8/8" and then you get 7/8 or something.  so you win well.   just like anyone else.  But to go into the dark territory and permeate the gates of hell, you reap the ultimate reward.  thanks for the clarification!

Yep you got it. Going for the big prize results in pretty big losses if you just miss out. Going for all correct will still give you a nice payload if you stumble to 6 or 7 correct answers.
