GUESS THE RESULTS 2017
« on: June 20, 2017, 11:34:47 PM »


Rules:

*You do not have to have voted to participate. You can also participate if you are presenting award(s), see farther down. You also don't have to attend the ceremonies, as we will calculate all of the results of this beforehand.

*You can do Mario, Fail, and/or Community, any single one, combo of two, or all three. There will be four achievements - highest score in each one, and highest combined total (must do all three to qualify for this one, of course).

*You will have a chance to gain up to 15 points per award by guessing the Top 3 (gold, silver, bronze) nominees. Therefore, the max score is 450 for Mario, 225 for Fail, 225 for Community, and 900 total (the chances of acing any set is very low). You can get full credit for getting a nominee in the right spot, partial credit for getting a nominee that is in the Top 3 but in the wrong spot, or no credit for picking a nominee not in the Top 3 at all:
--Gold Exacta: 5 points
--Silver Exacta: 3 points
--Bronze Exacta: 2 points
--Any Spot: 1 point
--Miss: 0 points
--Trifecta (triple exacta): +5 points, therefore 5 + 3 + 2 + 5 = 15.

*I'll post an example so the meaning is clear, as well as show some intricacies so you can strategize. If the Top 3 of award M9001 is A, B, and C, then:
--C, B, D: C is in the top 3, but it is put as gold instead of bronze: 1 point. B is an exacta 3 points, D is nowhere to be found, 0 points. Total: 4
--C, D, A: Two spots are mixed up, but they still only count as 1 point each. Total: 2
--A, E, F: Salvaging gold can make a mess a decent amount. Total: 5
--C, E, F: You don't want to do this. Total: 1
--D, B, C: As close to a trifecta as this is, that miss is 0 instead of what would have been 5+5 points. Total: 5
--C, A, B: Getting the right three nominees isn't enough if they're all mixed up. Total: 3
--B, A, C: Again, this is pretty close to a trifecta, but... Total: 4
--As you should see, putting a gold in the wrong spot costs you more points (4) than a bronze (1), and that a trifecta is appropriately hard to earn and fairly easy to give up.

Here is the full list.  If you submit a red nominee, you didn't read the document.

*For any award you are presenting, you will receive a free 5 points.  This contest is opening before sign-ups (which will open July 1st), so any votes for an award you are presenting are cast before you sign up, they will be removed and replaced by 5 free points.  Do not guess the results of an award after you have signed up for it.  We know you are cheating.
--If you are a host or have access to the polls in some way, please get your guesses in as soon as possible, at the latest July 10th, a week before polls close.

*Submit your entries here - you are free to edit them until right before the ceremonies begin. Look at other people's submissions if you want, but second-guessing has just as great a chance to add to your points as much as subtracting them! Keeping each award to one line would be appreciated, just putting "A#: A, B, C" will be read as gold, silver, bronze across the line.

*Please do not spam ceremony topics with announcements of your GTR score. Such posts will be removed.

*Last year's GTR game thread

Let's get guessing!

Spoiler: Mario Awards (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Fail Awards (click to show/hide)

I'm not guessing the community awards, as I know barely anything about the community.

I'm done. A lot of my guesses are pretty similar to 2016's results, but hey, opinions don't change that much after a year, do they? Also, I realized that if I predicted the Community Awards correctly, Anton's gonna win a lot of figurative medals.

The 900 points are on my sight. I just need to strategically analyze the results for a bit and surely I'll make it. Nevermind that I'm probably going to max out at 890 or 880 because presenting an award means you can't trifecta it.

I'll have a go... I'll guess some more later.

But I'm going to put in the guess for the one I'm hosting now, BEFORE I GET THE RESULTS. This one will not be edited, the only thing I'll know is whether I got it right early, and I will not spoil it for the other people. I am not going to cheat because that is no fun.

OK, I'm bored at the moment, let's start some more actual guessing:
Spoiler: Mario Awards (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Fail Awards (click to show/hide)
(Please excuse any mistake, I did this 11 o'clock at night)
I won't guess the Community stuff because I have absolutely no clue about it. I haven't even heard of some of the users before.

Last Place here I come!
