You think you know Football?

For the rest of the week the teams in the World Cup will be playing the last games of the round-robin stage of the tournament. By Friday night we will know which of the 16 teams will move up to the next round, and I thought we would make a league event out of it. This event is open to all Disconnected and Restless League members, so let's have some fun together.

This will be a betting pool using Blood Essence as our prizes. Every player who wants to join us can select which team they think will win from the Round of 16. You will pay 1 BE into the pool with your choice and the players who correctly pick the winner will share the BE prize pool.

If your team is eliminated from the tournament in the Round of 16 I will allow a re-entry pick from the Round of 8, but you'll have to pay another BE into the prize pool. There won't be a re-entry pick from the Round of 4 because that would probably be just a bit too easy.

If no one picks the actual winner of the tournament, the prize pool will go to the players who picked the second place team, and if we have to we'll go down to the third place team but I doubt that will be necessary.

So, on Friday night after the Group H teams have played their final games I will be in Hefei at the event stage to take your picks and Blood Essence. At the same time I will build a public googledoc so that every one can see who has picked which team. Because I'm holding the prize pool, I won't be making a pick even though Germany is obviously going to win the World Cup.

And last of all, if the prize pool is not a round number that can be shared out equally I will add to the pool so that it can be shared equally.

Sound like fun? You think you know Football?
