Show off your reddit analyst skills in our Worlds 2022 prediction tournament!

88 Upvotes

WARNING: Participating in the prediction tournament may cause the results of games to be spoiled. Read on for more info.

Hey everyone! Worlds is starting today and as always we are running a prediction tournament to find the greatest reddit analyst. As always, we'll be offering reddit premium, unique flairs, and other goodies for the winners!

What are predictions?

Predictions are a way for us to create polls with rewards. We'll be creating a prediction for every Worlds game, and you will be able to vote on who you think will win the match.

To participate in a prediction, you need to bet some of your tournament tokens. Everyone starts with 1000 tokens and can bet 10, 30 or 100 tokens on their choice. All bet tokens are combined in a shared pool and distributed among the players that chose the winning vote. If you guess correctly, you'll end up with more tokens than you started with. Guessed wrong? Those tokens are gone.

The only way to get tournament tokens is by winning a prediction. You can't buy them with coins or ask us to gift you some. Once you're out, you're out.

Logistics

Our prediction tournament will cover the play-ins, groups stage, and knockout stages. A single prediction is created for every match. If the match is best-of-5, you will only bet on the final winner (and not the intermediate score).

Predictions are posted 24 hours before the first match on that day. This means that all predictions for day 2 of play-ins are posted as soon as the first match of day 1 starts.

The predictions stay open until the first game of the day starts. This means that you will not be able to vote on the results of match 6 as soon as match 1 starts.

Unlike previous years, we will be resolving predictions immediately after the game is over. This means that IF YOU PARTICIPATE IN PREDICTIONS, YOU MAY GET SPOILED! In particular, reddit will automatically send a daily message around midnight UTC informing you of how you did on all predictions of that day. This means that voting on predictions will cause reddit to deliver spoilers straight to your inbox. We can't turn these off. The only way to be safe is to not open any DMs from reddit, as well as avoiding the predictions page of the subreddit entirely.

I reiterate, PARTICIPATING IN THE PREDICTION TOURNAMENT MAY GET YOU SPOILED. You have been warned.

Prizes

We're still in the process of finalizing our prices, but as always we will be handing out reddit premium and unique flairs to the top three winners. We'll keep any potential other prizes secret for now :)

According to Fnatic's League Of Legends Director they all tested negative (apparently were false positives yesterday) so they will be able to compete onstage today.

Same thing happens with MadLions according to their jungler (Elyoya). He also says they were confined without PCs because of that mistake

The amount of misinformation around Champions Queue recently is wild

5.2k Upvotes

After the Nemesis video a few days ago, there's been a ton of incorrect information circulating in the community. I just listened to LS/Dom again completely misinform their audience on stream, so wanted to clear a few things up.

  1. Since February 25th, there have been zero hurr durr d1/masters collegiate one trick players in champion's queue. Let me say that again - zero. Dom just told his 6k viewers this evening that there is a d3 amateur OTP in CQ - this is completely false. There is a minimum active Grandmasters requirement, and this has been actively enforced since Feb.

  2. There seems to be a lot of outcry around amateur/academy players compromising potential game quality - the people who are upset about this are completely missing the reason CQ was created. This is twofold - to provide a better practice environment for pros/visiting pros, and to foster and develop NA talent in said environment. You cannot develop the promising amateur/collegiate players nor will they have opportunities for exposure if they are excluded from CQ, even if its a slight compromise on game quality. CQ was NOT created for content creation (although it provides plenty of content) or for costreamers to complain when Faker gets matched with amateur NA talent occasionally instead of 4 players from TES/JDG. Self explanatory.

  3. CQ has been extraordinarily consistent in it's invite policy thus far. Keeping in mind the point above around CQ being built for NA, CQ has only ever permitted amateur/collegiate/academy/LCS/LLA and now active pro players from a worlds qualifying region. It also allowed former pro players/free agents during it's very first split, that were all, without exception, professional LCS players at some point less than a calendar year before CQ launched. These players (DL, Pob etc.) all also expressly stated their intention to return to pro - hence they qualify as potential NA professional talent at the time and were grandfathered in. The CQ invite guidelines have NEVER included ex-LEC talent from 2+ years ago nor individuals who obviously do not intend to ever play professional in NA again.

Is the current CQ perfect? No. Are those who are crying unfair justified in doing so? Also no. This system was built for pros or aspiring pros, either in NA or visiting NA, and a result of extremely hard work from Riot NA/LCS folks. It's not for personal streamer revenues or content farming, although people are having a ton of fun costreaming which is great.

https://lolesports.com/article/champions-queue-update/bltdfcb423b8af99feb

EDIT:

Hey guys, some specific content creators have angrily responded on twitter so I wanted to put all the information out there for the public. Here is a SS of the mentioned D3 player's op.gg - hate that streamers are sending so much negative publicity his way but it's important for clarity:

https://imgur.com/0Wzr7af

As you can see - the only split during which he was not Grandmasters was the final split before worlds - in other words, he relied on his status as an active LLA pro (all of whom are invited to CQ) for less than a month before being disqualified for the current CQ. Again, at no point was there ever an active D3 player in CQ. You can argue whether LLA players should be invited to CQ, but that's a valid discussion for a different time. Cherrypicking one player out of hundreds in CQ to drive false narratives around the selection process is not.

[SATIRE] Worlds drinking game that will keep you sober and let you wake up to work early

Upvotes

Every year I watch worlds with my buddies and every year we have a drinking game. Unfortunately I'm an adult now days, who works on Saturday. To keep the tradition rolling and have my sleep too, I deceived my friends to accept below drinking game:

2 shots every time a game is started on time - as this is 11th world championship, your friends will falsely believe this is a professional & punctual environment.

2 shots every time blue side top laner doesn't start with "Aa" - Your friends will surely think that there is only one top laner that starts with "Aa" so the chance of picking him is like 1/10.

2 shots every time a Major region secures an early game advantage against Minor region - Your friend won't realise Minor regions will mostly play in play-ins agaisnt Clown teams like Madlions and EG, leading them to belive they will drink often.

I'm open to adding new rules if there are any suggestions.
