Bolão Da Copa!
Disclaimer: If you don’t wanna play the guessing game, you’re still welcome to just talk about the games
So, as some of you might know, I’m Brazilian, and in every world cup we have what we call “Bolão da Copa” (The Cup’s big ball? lol)
The rules are simple: we guess the results of the games!
We usually do it for money (everyone puts money on the pot and whoever gets the game right, wins everything)
However, let’s change it here, let’s do a little game of points.
1st place Prize: Be named the Shoryuken World Cup Guru
We do it phase by phase, starting with the Groups phase. We will guess the results for all games in the First Phase at once, and count points as the games are played.
The points will be accounted following this:
Tier C: Guessed right who would win (or a tie): 1 point (it’s easy to guess Brazil will win everything haha)
Tier B: Guessed right the number of goals for losing team: 2 point (it’s easy to guess that bad teams won’t score anything…)
Tier A: Guessed right the number of goals for winning team: 3 points (now that’s more interesting)
Tier S: Guessed right the number of goals for both teams: 7 points (supreme guess, congrats!)
Extra: 1 point for each position guess at the end of the groups phase. (for those who don’t know, each group has 4 teams, and all of them face all other 3 in a points system, the 2 best ones go to the next stage)
You can ONLY get the points for ONE tier, they are NOT cumulative.
Let’s say you guessed that Brazil x USA would be BRA 7 x 0 USA, and you were right
You get only 7 points. You will not get 13.
I hope everyone understand the rules ^^
**How to participate: **
Below you will find all the matches for the current phase, and eventually the results.
Just do a copypasta and fill in the results. You don’t have to guess every single one if you don’t want to. But that means less points…
To avoid edits and false claims, I will copy every entry on my post, so we can guarantee no one will cheat.
If you want to change your guesses, just post what you wanna change and I will change it. But do it before the games start obviously…
Anyone can join at anytime. This is just for fun and guessing (and the best part of guessing is mocking other teams lol)
However, you can only guess results of games that have not happened yet…
That’s why I’m starting this early, so everyone can join and start the speculations.
Last rule: please, not “anti copa” posts here. EVERYONE is aware of the social/economic situation in Brazil, and EVERYONE is tired of hearing the same story over and over again. If you don’t agree with Brazil hosting the world cup, go to Brasilia and kick the president in the face, or do whatever the fuck you want. But not here. We are here to have fun guessing the results of the games. So please, sit down, drink some beer, relax and let’s have fun.
Anything else is allowed, as long as we respect the forums rules.
Good Luck, and Have Fun! (and always bet on Brazil)
