Oracle

The Oracle Challenge will test your prediction abilities down to the hundredth of a percent!

The Oracle Challenge is a competition held each season on Board 8, the object of which is to predict the exact percentage of every contest matchup. The Challenge was originally created for the 2003 Contest by the Godfather of Stats, solarshadow, before he handed the reigns to King Morgoth, who updated the standings alongside his co-host Kaxon from 2004 to 2008. In recent seasons, updating duties have been handled by Kleenex, Carvey, and Shattered Elysium.

All things OC-related can be found on the competition's official website: oraclechallenge.com.

Scoring Edit

Points are awarded based on how far a user's prediction is from the actual result of the match and whether or not they correctly predicted the winner. Correctly predicting the winner of the match is worth 50 points minus the difference between the prediction and the result. Incorrectly predicting the winner of the match is worth 45 points minus the difference between the prediction and the result. During 4way competitions a similar scoring system is employed, but without a penalty for selecting the incorrect winner.

Points are cumulative throughout each contest and the winner of the challenge is the user who has the most points at the end of the final match.
