Hello my fellow SteamGifters! 😃

In about a month from 14 June to 15 July 2018 there will be the 21st FIFA World Cup in Russia. 32 teams compete to determine the worlds best football team and the successor of 2014 winner Germany (yay! 😄)

I got the idea that we can make a prediction game here and enjoy this event together.

Also I will add giveaways from time to time with different conditions to join. I will put in some hopefully interesting information about the teams, venues or other topic concerning the event in the next weeks.


Rules

You predict the result of the game up to 5 minutes before the match starts. if you get the entirely correct result you get 10 points, if you have the incorrect result but the right tendency you get 5 points

Example

Game result Predicted result Points
2:0 2:0 10
2:0 2:1 5
2:0 2:2 0
2:0 2:3 0
3:1 after extra time 3:1 10
3:1 after extra time 2:1 5
3:1 after extra time 1:1 0
3:1 after extra time 2:3 0
6:8 after penality shoot 6:8 10
6:8 after penality shoot 1:2 5
6:8 after penality shoot 0:0 0
6:8 after penality shoot 3:2 0

At the moment the default setting for when a match ends for the prediction is active which is after penalty shoot.

Furthermore there are some questions you have to answer up to 5 minutes before the first match starts on 14th June.

Question Points
Which team will produce the highest goal scorer? 5
Who will reach the semi-finals? 3 for every correct team (order doesn't matter)
Which team will win group [GROUP LETTER]? 3
Which team will be world champion? 5

I just spent 3,5 hours doing this puzzle and I got shit at the end. Completely not worth it. Is it just jigidi with no actual GA? Can you pls check Kazan Arena, Kazan Kul Sharif Mosque BioShock Infinite.
And can I get a link in PM? here's the photo that I got from solving it

Finally registered, filled predictions for groups only (because "wait & see" to fill round of 16, and also because this after penalties rule really change it all^^).
Also yaaaay jigidi !

I'll obviously go for France since it's my country. Not 100% optimistic for a win, but it's a nice team, with very good players, just maybe slightly unbalanced. I think they can go to the semi-finals, and then, who knows...after all, nobody was optimistic about our chances when we won the WC 20 years ago ^^. Other selections I'll follow when I can : Argentina and Mexico, even if both don't seem to be at their best :/

Anyway, thanks for this very nice event Moony!

But in 98 Zidane was in the team! Unfortunately, there are no such players now, Griezmann, Pogba and others are not impressive in important matches. Anyway, good luck France, I always liked this team.

Sadly true about Zidane, it may take some decades to find another one like him in the national team.

Also true about Pogba, even if he shows better things recently and plays simpler, we will see if he keeps it this way.
I just may disagree about Griezmann in important matches, since he scored twice vs. my favourite team (thanks dude...) in Europa League final last month. (ok, it was not with France, but still :p).

I didn't quite write correctly, I mean important matches for the national team, of course (I generally prefer national teams football). I just was a little disappointed with the finale of the past Euro. For some reason, many stars in the matches for the national team look worse than for the clubs. And players like Pogba, overrated, unstable, but so boastful - the reason for me not to watch football at all.

As a german I remember too good that Griezman can score in important matches (semi-finals @euro 2016)

It's hard to argue about this. Yes, he scored 2 goals in this game, although, not particularly impressive goals, besides, about this game, if Germany had a normal striker, such as Klose, I think they would have won, this was the only missing element in this team. But in the finale, when Portugal closed in defense, against such teams, when for him there are no free zones, he didn't show something outstanding. Maybe I just find fault, I was very disappointed with this finale, when the team that won only one match in regular time won the tournament. Of course, he is a fantastic player, the best French football player to date and one of the best in the world, maybe he just doesn't have enough luck in the big finals (with all due respect, Europa League doesn't apply to them, in my opinion, this is a useless tournament).

Okay, got my picks in. Whew.
I always root for France and Germany. It's tough when they play each other. Hopefully both will win their groups and they can meet in the Final!
I also root for Belgium and Spain, but to a lesser degree.

Man, I really didn't expected that beating Saudi Arabia took! XD

At the very least I'm tied with the others in first place. :)

Neither did I-- I predicted 2-0. Once it got to 3-0, though, it was good that Russia got an extra goal (or two), because nobody picked 4-0 or 5-0. I feel bad for the Saudis, though. They have pride like anybody else and nobody wants to lose 5-0. =(

Did you watch the highlight that the Saudi president look at Putin? He seemed so sad, poor guy.

No I didn't-- I only saw the first 10 minutes of the match because I'm at work in the office. Maybe I'll catch the highlights online, and see that sad look. :(

You should, the goals were worth looking anyway. Not bad at all for the first match but poor guys, that was humiliating.
