Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Official WrestleZone Prediction Contest. My name is Dave and I currently run the Prediction contest and am Moderator of the section. I have been running the Contest since WrestleMania 31. This thread, short as it may be, should give you information about what the Prediction Contest is and how it works. If you have any questions, or you need any more information, then please feel free to send me a PM and I will try my best to answer it for you. What is WZPC? As I said, WZPC stands for the WrestleZone Predictions Contest. WZPC has been running for as long as I can remember and has been through many different incarnations and sets of rules. As of right now, the Prediction Contest only covers WWE Pay-Per-Views but that is subject to change. The idea of WZPC is to amass as many points as you can from each WWE PPV to become the overall Champion at the end of the year. During the year, individual championships are handed out from PPV to PPV based on your predictions and add more incentive on a monthly basis. So, you're probably asking how it works. How WZPC Works At each WWE PPV, a thread will be created in the WZPC Prediction Thread sub-forum. The predictions window will be from when the thread is started (usually after Smackdown before the PPV) until the start of the PPV pre-show. Any submissions posted after the start of the aforementioned pre-show will not be counted as information can be given away during the show that would inform your predictions. When predicting a card, WZPC asks you to pick a winner from each match, the method of finish, and how many confidence points you affix to each match. If the match card has 5 matches, then you may use 5 different confidence points (ranging from 1 to 5) on each match, but you may only use the confidence points ranking once. Here is a sample card. And here is how it should be filled out Please take note of a few things and how it should be completed. Firstly, the 5 confidence points have been affixed to a match, ranging from 1 to 5. If the card had 10 matches, then you would affix the matches 10 confidence points; noting that you can only use each confidence measure once per card. Secondly, notice the figure (5) beside the winner and the method of finish. This means that you will be awarded 5 points for each of these that you get correct. These points are given in addition to your confidence points. Lastly, each PPV round will contain bonus questions that will award you more points if you guess the answer correctly. These questions range in terms of nature and are at the discretion of the thread starter. For an example of what sort of questions will be posted, please have a look through some of the posted threads in the prediction sub-forum. Championships In WZPC, we have 2 championships during the season. They are the WZPC Heavyweight Championship and the WZPC Intercontinental Championship. Both of these Championships are defended at each WWE PPV and are determined by the scores from the previous round. The person who scores the highest during PPV A will challenge the Heavyweight Champion at PPV B. The same is true of the Intercontinental Championship, with the exception that it is the person who scored the second highest at PPV A. If a champion loses his Championship, he will be awarded a rematch to the Championship at the following PPV. This will make the Championship match a triple threat match.
