If you predict a game correctly by predicting 0 for that game, you will earn 5 points.
If you predict correctly the match number you entered to the Joker box, the points you get from that game will be doubled.
Points earned from 9 games will make up your weekly total. The player with highest weekly total becomes the champion of the week.
The player with the highest total in 34 weeks wins this competition.
Find a 0-0 Game
You will earn 1 point for each 0-0 game you find. The number of players who couldn't find a game during that week will be given to you as a tie-breaker point as well.
These two points will be accumulated whole season and will decide the winner.
Beat the Favourites
You will see two imaginary players every week - "Favourites" and "Underdogs". Their predictions are made up of your predictions. Themost predicted result for a game becomes a Favourites prediction and the least predicted result for a game becomes an Underdogs prediction.
Since these two sets of predictions are not final until all players send in their predictions, you will try to guess the Favourites predictions first and then try to find which prediction may be wrong. It may look different at the beginning, but it is much easier to decide what the favourite predictions are. BJK, FB, GS and home teams will be the favourite predictions almost all the time.
You will earn 1 point for each Favourites' mistake you find. The number of players who couldn't find a game during that week will be given to you as a tie-breaker point also.
These two points will be accumulated whole season and will decide the winner.
Beat the Champ
You will have a match vs the weekly champion of the previous week. Weekly totsla will be the goals scored for both players. The win will be worth 3, the draw will be worth 1 point. 34 weeks totals will decide the two winners in this competition. One winners will be one the champions who got the most points and the other will be one of the challengers with the most points during wwhle season.
If a champions doesn't send his predictions before the start of the first game of the week, then the second players of the previous week will play as the champion.
You will start this game with three lives. Lets assume you predict the result of the 7th game as 2-1.
If that game ends 2-1, you will earn an extra life.
If that game doesn't end 2-1,but the first team wins, you will not get an extra life, but will not lose a life either.
If thar game and as a draw or a visitor win, then you will lose one of your lives.
The players who lost all his three lives will be left out of the game. Lucky 7 will end when there is one player left in the game. When all players are left out of the game at the end of Lucky 7, the players who got eliminated during that week will be the co-winners of the competition.
A new game will start the week after a game is completed.
The new game will not start during Week 33 and 34 of the league.
If a game is unfinished at the end of the year, the player(s) with the most lives becomes the winner(s).
League games are not open to all players. They are played by 64 players in 4 leagues. These players are decided according to the promotionrelegation rules after the last competition. The league games start during the third week of each half and the fixtures are made with the players predicting during the second week.
The leagues are played in 4 groups as Süper Lig, 1st league, 2nd League, and 3rd League. There will be 16 players in each league. They will play each other once during 15 weeks. The matches will award 3 points for a win.
In the league games the continuation is very important. If a player misses to predict the opponent that week may benefit from this mistake. That's why if a player misses a week he will automatically lose that game however his opponent will not get an automatic win. The opponent will play vs the "Favourites" that week. If the same player misses a second time he will then onautomatically lose again but his opponent that week will play vs "Underdogs". If the sameplayer misses a third time during a league, he is expelled from the league and will be banned from all league competitions for spoiling the league.
If a player has a berth from last competition, but misses the second week and not inluuded in the fixtures, may join the leagues next time from the lowest league according to new player rules.
