What is CricketPredictions.com?
CricketPredictions is a unique web based cricket league game where you get points based on the accuracy of your predictions. The aim of the game is NOT to score maximum points. Instead, you win by overtaking other participants by accurate predictions of your players of your choice. The more accurate your predictions of the performances of your chosen players, the more points you will get.
How is it different from other Fantasy leagues like Crickinfo etc?
Fantasy League by Cricinfo is about picking up the 11 players who you think will perform the best on any given day. CricketPredictions goes one step further and lets you predict their performances and give you points if your predictions are accurate. Your player doesn't have to perform best to get you more points. He has to perform as you predicted him to. (Yes, even a player scoring a duck can get you loads of points, if you predicted he would do so!)
Do I get more points if my chosen players perform better than other members'?
No. You do not get points on players performances. You get points on the accuracy of your predictions of player's performances. The closer your prediction is to the actual result, the more points you accumulate.
Why am I not allowed to select more than 6 players for my team?
This is a new concept. We want to get your opinion on how you want this game to develop before expanding it further. So for the moment, we are starting with limited options for all users. Based on your feedback and our monitoring of how the game is being played, we will add more options at later stages.
Can I enter more than one tournament with the same team?
Actually, for CricketPredictions, you have to create a new team for each game because you have to pick 6 players from the 2 teams that are playing that particular game. This is different from other Fantasy League games where one team of 11 players is created and then changes are made by transferring players throughout the tournament.
Can I submit my predictions for all games before the tournament starts?
Yes, you can submit your predictions for all the games once you have joined a tournament. Just be informed about the players that you pick before the start of the game to make sure that your chosen player is indeed playing. Unlimited substitutions are allowed before the start of the game.
