Since the entries for the Japanese Championships are now up, it is probably a good time to kick things off.

The Rules are still largely the same as for the GP Predictions Game. So, like last year, I will use tulosai’s explanation as the basis.


Rules (pretty much the same as last year):

  1. Guess the Top 5 finishers in each discipline at each Grand Prix. Each event will have it's own dedicated thread in which to make predictions. For handiness, I will provide a list of the entries in the first post in each of these threads.

  2. Although only the Top 5 will be scored, you are advised to include at least 6 skaters in your predictions lists for each discipline. The remaining skaters will be alternates in case any of the skaters you pick for your Top 5 withdraws or can't compete at the last minute.

  3. The deadline to get your predictions in is one hour before the first Short Programme of the event starts. If the pairs are first and they start at 7pm EST, you should aim to get your predictions in by 6pm EST.

  4. For your prediction to qualify for scoring, you must provide the full last name(s) in your predictions. The thread of each round will include the entries for each discipline, so all you need to do is copy and paste. Abbreviations, nicknames, first names will not be accepted.


Scoring

Each correct guess is worth 15 points. If you guess Mao will be first and she is first, that is 15 points. If you guess Mirai is 5th and she is 5th, that is 15 points.

Each guess that is one placement off is worth 10 points. If you guess Ashley is 2nd and she is 1st, you get 10 points. If you guess Gracie is 5th and she is 6th, you get 10 points.

Each guess that is two placements off is worth 5 points. If you guess Akiko is 4th and she in 2nd, you get 5 points. If you guess Tukt is 3rd and she is 5th, you get 5 points.

These are the competitions that are rounds of the Predictions Game:

National Championships Game

Round 1: Russian Championships (23rd – 27th December 2020)
Round 2: Japanese Championships (23rd – 27th December 2020)
Round 3: American Championships (11th – 21st January 2021)
Round 4: Canadian Championships (8th – 14th February 2021) CANCELLED

This thread will be available for general discussion about the game, and for analysing how the game is progressing. But, please keep the predictions and subsequent discussion about each event in the specific thread for that event:

Russian Championships: Predictions Game Round 1
Japanese Championships: Predictions Game Round 2
American Championships: Predictions Game Round 3
Canadian Championships: Predictions Game Round 4 CANCELLED

The scores for all the rounds will be recorded in the scoresheet, which can be found at:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aOMrj-pA9UZFGezzq_g4-EBi5cbm4fLhdlvQuodPoZA/edit?usp=sharing

Plus, if you want a handy way to keep track who is on the podium in each round, we have the HALL OF FAME thread, which can be found at:

https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/threads/87338/


Thank you so much to the scorers of this year’s Predictions Games for making them such a success. This new game would not have been possible without you!

Good luck everybody!

Thank you for the correction. I'm really grateful for the heads up, as it means that the final 2 rounds are now in a different order. And it would have been a nightmare if I hadn't found out until after the scoresheet had been uploaded. :drama: :eek:

I hadn't heard about the date change, as I don't really follow domestic skating news in North America. And I can work out why I missed it on the forum just by looking at the date of the thread - it was my birthday!

Thank you again, @ice coverage.

:thank:

Agreed!

Also, no rush, and just curious, but any idea when the Russian Prediction thread will be up? With Russian and Japanese Nationals taking place at the same time, and we already have the Japanese thread?

Russia's thread will go up whenever somebody can provide me with the entry lists! ;) :biggrin:

The problem is that the way the Russian domestic events are scheduled every year mean that the entry lists for Nationals do not come out until quite close to the event starting. The Russian Cup series (which is used as qualifying for Nationals) only finished a few days ago, and the St. Petersburg Championships are on at the moment (I don't know if they count towards qualifying).

But, once the entry lists appear, I will get the Predictions Thread made out and uploaded as soon as I can.

Here you have the official participants of the Russian National Championship !

Thank you so much, Antoine! :bow: :clap: :points:

I'm currently watching the Winter Star, and will be switching over to Italian Nationals once the Senior Ladies SP is over. But, I've got the template sitting ready, so I'll add the info to it and get it up by tomorrow morning.

Thank you again

:thank:

The scoresheet link in the original post has been updated :)

I know I've already said it in the Japanese thread, but thank you again for doing this. And sorry again for being stupid when I was last on, and as a result leaving you in the position where you had to do something yourselves.

Can't say I am surprised. After the initial delay, I was fully expecting this to happen. It's a shame, but well done to the Canadian Fed for doing the responsible thing.
