I'm updating our "blurb" here, to show the changes we've made to the game.
ROLL-UP! COME JOIN-IN. THIS SITE'S VERY OWN
"MASTERS OF NONLEAGUE" PREDICTION LEAGUE GAME 2013-14
NLM's annual prediction-fest is starting up again very soon and I encourage all of you, both old and new to come and join in the fun. Entry is FREE, and there are several modest prizes to be won!
You can find the main page at http://www.nlpl.co.uk/...able&month=24116 and just follow the simple instructions to register your name/team.
It's dead easy to play: predict a result, win between 5 points for a perfect guess & 'nil points' for getting it completely wrong, but with bonus points all over the show: for getting single scores correct, which team won or if it ended all-square & also for pinning-down the exact goal difference.
We'll choose regular matches for you each game-Week, drawn from Steps One thru' Six in the main part, but 'plumped-up' with lots of Cup/Trophy/Vase matches.
We expect to set a total of over 1000 predictions for you to make over the whole season! But we'll accept as 'serious-players'; i.e. those aiming to win one of our (minimum of) five prizes; anyone who ends up completing just 60% of possible fixtures come the end of the final week of the season.
However, if even that sounds daunting, by all means set up your own private mini-leagues where you and pals can pick and choose subsets of the main list to stick to - with as many or as few fixtures as desired.
Names/Teams are placed in a league table, the order determined by most points first and secondarily by 'goal difference'.
"How," I hear you say, "does goal difference get calculated?".
OK - you are going to win one goal for each correctly guessed team score... and then there's a bonus of twice that actual score, which is added to your total! in other words, correctly predict Team A to hit four goals - you get nine goals-for. Predict Team B to score nil goals and you do get a goals-for amount... but unfortunately that'd be just the single. Shame! lol
Goals against are summed from the differences between each of your guessed team scores and their real scores. Going back to Team A v. Team B (from above) @ 4-0... if you'd guessed 3-1 - your GF/GA column would be altered by 0/2 respectively. Had you predicted 4-2 instead, you'd have gotten 4/2 respectively in your GF/GA columns. It's simpler than it looks and you'll quickly get the hang of it!
For those SERIOUS COMPETITORS (the ones aiming to win prizes), there's an alternative 'simple' league table available (under the 'statistics' button) - which ranks all players by their average points-per-game record - and is the real skill monitor.
It is from the STATISTICS table, that we determine our prize-winners. For the 2012-13 season, 1st. won a copy of the 2014 Non-League Directory, while 2nd. through 5th. respectively, won vouchers for £20, £15, £10 & £5 from a top online football publications Company.
THIS SEASON, WE'RE HOPING TO GET SPONSORSHIP TO INCREASE PRIZE VALUES & NUMBERS!
