SWG is a SystemWars offshoot that focuses on Gamespot users correctly or incorrectly predicting score outcomes for any said game across any platform. Users will place predictions with consequences attached just in case they manage to lose. Nobody should get off scot-free, amirite? Winning earns pride, and recognition (GS User Hall of Fame!). Or better yet, perhaps even earning this trusty GS Acheivement! JodyR has approved an emblem to hand out at the end of each year. :]
All new bets will now be added to the google spreadsheet above. This makes things A LOT easier for the SWG staff--and we don't have to deal with pesky HTML errors, text overload, and constantly editing GS pages which takes a lot more effort than a simple spreadsheet.
This is awarded to individuals who hold some sort of wizardry-like-talent in predicting the future. Hats off to the winners of the SystemWars Game challenge! We salute you... even if your crystal ball skills are scary.
Losing might require you to leave SystemWars for a certain amount of time, or wear a signature for a certain amount of time showing off your failure at predicting a score--or maybe even taking a funny picture/video of yourself; it's all based on what the user wants to do, and how "sure" he/she in that his/her prediction is right.
- You MUST be a level 10, and have at least 200 posts in order to participate.
- Reminder - No monatary esque type bets allowed. e.g. I will purchase X game if I lose/I will buy X for the first person... ect.
- Score predictions must be specific or in a general-specific basis. Meaning, you must predict exactly a 8.5 or you may predict AA encompassing both 8.0 and 8.5.
- Formats will now be strickly enforced. I will continue to reply and quote your bet until you get the format right. :]
- Consequences must be completed within one week's time--a one week extension approved by me will be given if you need it.
- Group Bets can involve a maximum of four participants.
- The maximum time duration for a punishment is one month and the minimum is one week.
- Sales bets are NOT allowed.
- Bets will be VOID if a month passes past release of the game, and no review is present.
