    Worlds Prediction game

    lol, thanks. I wanted to get more from the "experts" but couldn't find much. Phil and Jackie did pretty well but they have the distinct advantages of seeing the skaters in person at the events and not fearing the jinx - most of us didn't get involved in the men's predictions. TSL wasn't ballsy enough to make actual placement predictions - I guess they're afraid to now since they've been so off so many times. I recently watched their 2014 worlds recap where they're mocking Aljona Savchenko for saying she wants to try to win Olympics in 2018 I think next year I'm going to keep the points to only the medalists if I'm going to involve the public figures, omit the men's field to keep the PH members on an even playing field, and have more bonus questions as they were the most popular part of the game. I'm open to suggestions. Maybe I'll try the google form that Joey uses for the Grand Prix but not sure what the advantage of that over just posting on the forum is. I'd like to do a pre-season prediction game as well but people seem to be more reluctant to make predictions about seasons and have to guess things so far in advance.

    Worlds Prediction game

    Here’s the rest of the results. Sorry for the delay. I listed in order of those who got the most points based on top 5 predictions but I’ll do a total for just top 3 as well LADIES Ladylou - 8/6 Jackie Wong - 7/6 River - 6/2 Old Cat Lady - 4/2 Yuzuangel - 3/3 Kaeryth - 2/1 Anski - NA/1 Sllycinnamon - NA/1 Louitunes - NA/1 Phil Hersh - NA/2 DANCE Old Cat Lady - 10/3 (how tha F did I do so well in dance of all disciplines? Wild guessing works I guess) Ladylou - 7/5 River - 6/4 Kaeryth - 5/4 Jackie Wong - 5/4 Sallycinnamon - NA/3 Louitunes - NA/3 Phil Hersh - NA/7 MEN - lot of abstentions due to jinx factor. Personally, everyone except Nathan in my original top 6 did worse (and some cases a LOT worse) than I predicted. I deleted my predictions before the men’s SP but clearly, the jinx starts as soon as the event starts so I was too late. In the future, as long as Yuzu is around, I’m definitely omitting this category for major events. Poor Shoma. Louitunes was the only one who didn’t expect him in the top 3. I can’t imagine how crushed he was to place off the podium for the first time in 3 years at worlds in his home country after so much expectation. Pretty sure 99.9% of the skating world was sure he’d medal. Jackie Wong - 5/3 River - 4/3 Ladylou - 4/3 Anski - na/3 Sallycinnamon - Na/3 Phil Hersh- NA/3 Louitunes - NA/2 OVERALL MEDAL PREDICTIONS Top 5 picks 1. LadyLou - 27 2. Jackie Wong - 25 3. River - 20 4. Old Cat Lady - 20 5. Kaeryth - 14 Top 3 picks 1. LadyLou - 18 2. Jackie Wong - 17 3. Phil Hersh - 14 4. River - 12 5. Sallycinnamon - 11 6. Old Cat Lady - 10 7. Kaeryth - 8 7. Louitunes - 8 9. Anski - 4 BONUS - ANSWER KEY - original question had to be answered exactly in order to get points. Some abstained for jinx and looked like you were picking Yuzu but unfortunately, can’t give credit without specifications. Some of you elaborated on your answer incorrectly, but as long as the original question was answered correctly, you got credit. Text in parenthesis wasn’t necessary to get credit. Russia (5) No 3 (men, dance, pairs) Chen Dance, Ladies, Pairs, Men (from that perspective, an amazing event - I think no one got this right) Yes (Papadakis/Cizeron) - CuLi4 from Rhythm dance, ChLi1/Chst from free dance, Tarasova/Morozov - 3lpth from SP, Sui/Han - ChSq1 from FS) Hanyu (4t/3a) Yes (P/C - performance, composition from FD) Chen Yes (10) Tie (No one got this right either. Might be my fault - didn’t realize that everyone from 16-24th got 16 points so didn’t fully inform everyone)) No (lost 1 in men) 1. Ladylou - 12 2. Anski - 12 3. River - 10 4. Old Cat Lady - 8 4. Kaeryth - 8 4. Yuzuangel - 8 4. Paskud - 8 4. Sallycinnamon - 8 4. Louitunes - 8 10. Hoodieaxel - 4 OVERALL INCLUDING BONUS Top 5 picks 1. LadyLou - 27+12= 39 2. River - 20+10= 30 2. Old Cat Lady - 20+10=30 4. Kaeryth - 14 +8 = 22 Top 3 picks 1. LadyLou - 18 + 12 = 30 2. River - 12 +10 = 22 3. Old Cat Lady - 10+10=20 4. Sallycinnamon - 11+8 = 19 5. Kaeryth - 8 + 8 = 16 5. Louitunes - 8 + 8 = 16 5. Anski - 4+12=16 Let me know if I made any errors. Thanks everyone for playing

    I only caught part of it. I caught the last 1/3rd or so. doesn't sound like I missed much. didn't pay close attention, but saw Shoma, Vincent, and Nathan and felt like I was watching the same program at different stages a skaters career - Vincent at novice level presentation, Nathan at junior, and Shoma as a senior.

    I was too tired and sad to score this but I'll get to it soon. I think next year I'll omit the men's event. Clearly I didn't delete my prediction before the jinx set in

    - Matteo Rizzo ITA - Queen 4t fall. 3a - forward. 3f lz/3t. Edge? 3lp. Ccsp4. 3a/2t. 3f/2t. 3lz. Fssp4. Stseq4. Ccosp3. 7th? 83.31/81.98=164.29. 8th 257.66. 5th

    - Shoma Uno JPN - Moonlight Sonata Butterflies really flapping in my stomach. 4s - fall, ur? 4f - fall. 4t - nice. Great fcsp4. Fccosp4 good, little reserved but centered. 4t rep - tap down w/free skate. 3a good. 3a/e/3f. 3s/3t. Traveling on ccosp4. Oh gawd. I think this might end up behind Zhou. he looked so relaxed but the pressure seems to have really gotten to him. I’m even more nervous for Yuzu now. 3a: 3.31/.52/13.7 Mihoko is so supportive. It’s so sweet. 89.9/89.02=178.92 270.32. 2nd.

    GROUP 4 - Vincent Zhou USA - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 4lz/3t rippon. Looked backward. Good. 4s. 3f. 4t - ur? Makes a distinctive sound when he ur - just a question of how much. 3a (ur?)/2t. 3a. Fcsp4. 3lz/e/3f (ur?). Stseq3. Cssp4. Not much besides the jumps but he does seem to at least make an effort at interpretation and performance - right now it has a drama club quality to it though. 3a: 2.78/.61/12.2 99.71/87.28=186.99. 1st 281.16. 1st
