The real battle starts now! EDIT: UPDATED
You will predict the winners of each of the three matches in a particular day. Once you have done so, sort them out by the vote margin they are likely to win by (in other words, the difference in votes between 1st and 2nd of a match-up) in decreasing order. (highest 1st, lowest 3rd)
The scoring system will be as follows:
5 points per correct winner
5 points if order is correct
Confused? Here’s an example.
Declaring Riichi – By declaring Riichi, you’ll stand a chance to gain an extra 10 points if you get the three winners and the order right. However, if any one of them is wrong (including the order), you will be deducted 5 points. For those who are not familiar with how it works, here’s an example.
P.S Micchi, Punyuru, Mayama – you will be able to declare a no-penalty Riichi once as a reward for finishing in the Top 3 in the prelims . Leave a comment here if you wish to use it.
Toki Shift – Introducing the new Toki Shift. Ever wanted to be able to see into the future? Well, now you can! (Ok, I’m just joking). Using Toki Shift will enable you to modify your entries up to 18 hours after kick-off. Woo, scary. However, it comes at a heavy price – you will be deducted 10 points upon using it. You can only use this move TWICE throughout the whole of Round 1, so be careful. Toki Shift cannot be used on the last day of Round 1 (17 September).
＼ｱｯｶﾘ～ﾝ／(Akari~n) – This allows you to submit a blank entry in place of an actual character participating in a match-up. The blank entry will be filled up with the eventual winner of a match-up. Here’s an example of how it works. You can only use this move TWICE throughout the whole of Round 1, but Akarin is a nice girl so no points will be deducted.
Also, you can’t Toki Shift and ＼ｱｯｶﾘ～ﾝ／ at the same time. To use either of them, just post a comment here.
In addition to that, there are 3 bonus questions for you to answer in the form, and 5 points will be given for each correct answer. There’s also a survey question with regards to the deadlines for daily modifications of your entries – this one obviously has no points.
Current time in Japan (GMT +9)
Deadline for form submission (A-B): 14 August 01:00 hrs GMT+9
Deadline for form submission (C-D): 23 August 01:00 hrs GMT+9
Deadlines for daily modifications will be dependent on results of the survey and will be reflected here later.
Based on the results of the survey, deadline for daily modifications will be before the start of the match-ups (ie. 01:00 hrs GMT+9 of each matchday).
Have fun scratching your heads over the next week!
