PostPosted: 04/12/19 2:27 am    ::: 2019 Tipping Contest Reply Reply with quote

Who'd like to participate in a tipping contest for the 2019 WNBA season?
Ideally I'd like to have at least 15 people involved to go ahead with it.

For anyone not familiar with it, we ran one in 2017, which was won by MuneravenMN.
The game: predict the winner of each WNBA regular season game. Simples.

Happy to negotiate the finer details (eg. how early prior to tip-off each tip needs to be submitted, what happens if someone forgets to submit an entry one day) if it goes ahead.

Taking entries for this up until the season starts so please feel free to join in. The more the merrier.

For anyone not familiar with what this contest is, the season schedule is broken down into weeks ("rounds") for easier viewing, like this:



... and you just need to pick which teams you think are going to win, so it's not a time-consuming thing at all. Log in. Click, click, click, click, and you're done.

Note that each week, the software requires you to tip the entire week of games before you can submit them. However, after that you can change each tip as often as you like up until each game's cut-off time.
Last time we played I had the cut-off time set to be a few hours before tip-off. That was intended to make things more fair for people who didn't get last-minute injury updates, but overall I think it had more negatives than positives, so unless there are major objections I will set it so that the tipping cut-off time is the published tip-off time.
** Please note that on this website the home teams are listed first, unlike the normal WNBA convention **

Anyone wanting to play, go to http://www.faceyoursfears.com/login and create an account there. (Please use your Rebkell username as your account name)
(If you participated in 2017 there is no need for you to make a new account. Your old one can be used this year)

Then bookmark this page - the home page for this season's contest:

Reminder: Go to the Tipping Home Page, create an account (if you don't already have one), and get your first round of selections in before opening night tip-off.

New players are welcome - the more, the better.

Big congrats to the round 1 winner: me!
There's nothing fishy going on btw. My tips are always the home teams. Which worked out nicely this week but 2017 proved that it's not a great long term strategy.

Please note the weird timing of the rounds, which run from Friday -> Thursday for some reason, rather than Monday -> Sunday.
So Round 2 entries need to be submitted before the next game (Seattle @ Atlanta) tips off.

Congrats tbinta for impersonating Chiney Ogwumike at the free throw line and shooting 12/14 to take the win for Round 2

This round was a 4-way tie going into tonight's game. 3 people tipped the Wings to break their drought, while Rebkell Polls correctly picked the Fever and is now the outright leader.

Randy still leads the real tipsters.

Another very solid round sees Randy retain the overall #1 spot.

4-way tie for this week's top spot with just Aces @ Sparks left to play this round.
I'm tipping a win for the home team. As always.

Nice work by jamied, Michelle and (overall leader) Randy all doing their best imitation of Amanda Zahui B at the free throw line and shooting 11-14 to win round 5.


Round 6 tips are due by 7:30pm ET tomorrow
