2018 Event Summary: World Cup

Status: Completed

RULES: WORLD CUP

There are 8 groups of 4 teams in the World Cup. Each group plays round robin and the top two from each group (16 teams total) advance to elimination play.

We have broken the 16 teams into 4 Tiers loosely based on current FIFA world rankings (http://www.fifa.com/fifa-world-ranking/ranking-table/men/index.html). You must pick 2 teams from each Tier.

Restriction: You may only pick one of Brazil, Germany and Spain from Tier1.

Points:
Group Play Draw: 5 points times Tier value
Group Play Win: 10 points times Tier value
Advance to Elimination Round: 25 points times Tier value
Elimination Win: 20 points times Tier value
Championship Bonus:
...100 pts for World Cup Championship
....75 pts for World Cup Runner up
....50 pts for 3rd place finish
....25 pts for 4th place finish

You also make a separate 'Champion' pick, worth 75 points if correct. This team may either double-up or hedge the teams you select in the 'seed groups' above.

Note: Altho the 3rd place (consolation) game will determine the final two championship bonuses, there will be no 'elimination win' points awarded for that game.

Example 1: If you select Senegal from Tier3 and they go 1-1-1 in group play and advance to elimination play, only to lose in the first elimination round you will earn:
...15+30+75+0+0 = 120 pts

Example 2: If you select Brazil from the Tier1 group and they go undefeated in group play, advance to elimination play and lose in the championship game you will earn:
...0+30+25+60+75 = 190 pts
