The Summer Game QOTW thread is go!! Answer this every week.

Recommended Posts

Not quite an SOTM, but also not quite a preseason and it runs every week. 

 

It is one thread. One question per week and a simple Yes/No or Over/Under question. 

 

e.g. Pikachu makes $100M in its 5th weekend Over / Under?

 

Players post in this thread their prediction and the thread is locked over the weekend. 

 

1 question per week for every week of the game

 

Correct answer is 20,000 points (Cumulates)

 

Incorrect answer cashes you out at half the points won over the player's current answer streak

Cash Out cashes you out at full points won

 

THERE ARE NO PASSES ANYMORE. FAILURE TO ANSWER FOR A WEEK IS AN AUTOMATIC CASHOUT WITH A 20% TAX REMOVED FROM PRIZE POOL (Rounded up to the nearest 1000 points).

 

After cashing out, players are automatically reentered into the next question, but the points per question is reduced as follows:

 

After first reentry - 15,000 points

After Second reentry - 10,000 points

After Third Reentry - 5,000 points

After forth Reentry - 3,000 points is the lowest limit.

 

BONUSES:

 

- 0 Cashouts = 300k

- 1 Cashout = 250k

- 2 Cashouts = 200k

- 3 Cashouts = 150k

- 4 or more Cashouts = 0

 

HOWEVER Incorrect answers modify the bonus as follows :-

 

0 Incorrect answers = 100% of bonus (as per above)

1 Incorrect answer = 75% of bonus scored

2 Incorrect answers = 50% of bonus scored

3 Incorrect answer = 25% of bonus scored

4 or more Incorrect answers = 0 bonus

 

If you can master the whole summer and complete everything with zero Cashouts AND zero mistakes you get 400k 

 

So it's not about the # of correct answers it's all about how many cashouts and how many mistakes you make.  (Cashouts = posted cashout for a week, or failing to answer a week.)

Chas - so i understand the scoring system here.

 

Incorrect Answers count as Cashouts or not (in the context of the number of Cashouts) - just clarifying so this is scored correctly

OK, bear with me... 

 

For the running cumulative totals, an incorrect answer cashes the player out for half of what they have earned and they are back to zero and on the lower prize point. 

 

For bonuses, an incorrect answer is NOT tallied as a cashout, but as an incorrect answer. 

 

Does that make sense. It does in my head, but my head is a dark and scary place that most souls do not understand.
