It's Europe. All the games will be 0-0 draws. Their idea of the perfect game.

What's the over/under for flops during a match, I wonder?

 

To the event itself, cheers!  Doesn't hurt to cater to a popular worldwide sport and do a little cross promoting.

Thanks Domo, I made all my predictions, just now.  While I am not a fan of soccer, I do believe there are going to be quite a few un-predicted upsets coming, this year.

I predict hours of boredom for everyone watching at home.  I do understand that the experience is worlds better in person though!

I admit that I will watch the USWNT when they play as women's play is a little slower and I can see the offensive & defensive plays set up a little easier on TV (much easier to see in person).  Plus it doesn't hurt that the US Women's team wins far more than it loses, unlike the US men's team.   AND there's not quite as much flopping in the women's games as there are in men's.   

 

I've tried watching the Premier League and Liga MX and while the announcers are generally excellent, their play calling alone is not enough to keep me interested.

I'm sure everyone can find a site to help them.  As for what the tourney is so you can google,

it is Euro 2021.

This looks like a fun event! I will be watching every game. However, I tried logging in to the site and it tells me "Event Paused" and I'm not able to make my picks.

I started my picks, paused for my lunch, came back and the website says the event has paused.

Will referees keep track of this so we can have stoppage time added on at the end?  :)

Well from what I can tell it should be up now but isn't and is a little worrying at the moment.

Just took a look at WoT EU and their Matchday site also displays "Event Paused".

Let's hope they get things sorted before the hooligans start rioting in the stands!

One thing I don't like is that to be able to make predictions in all 51 matches, we will end up needing to purchase 7 tickets for 245,000 credits. By my calculation, we start with 10 tickets and can earn 34 tickets, leaving a deficit of 7 tickets. Please let me know if my arithmetic is incorrect.

 

This is a rare event which actually costs credits rather than making them. Of course, if you're a good prognosticator, you can hit the maximum level before you get to the 51st game!

That's at most a couple premium tanks battles. Not worth worrying about.

 Yup. I did underestimate the credits required, though. My arithmetic was correct but logic was wrong, since most of the games (36) take place in the first 13 days of the tournament. In the last 8 days of the tournament we can earn 8 tickets, but there are only 3 games. So we'll have to purchase more tickets than I figured during the group stage.

In event description it says : "You can also make predictions with your friends in private leaderboard rooms. By gathering in rooms, you can compete against each other to see who can tally the most correct predictions and rank at the top of the room’s leaderboard. The highest scores in a room will receive a special medal"

 

So my questions is.  If 2 players have same number of corrects predicitons  do they both get that medal?

You'd think they would but then again, it's WG.
