Feel free to discuss anything related to betting here. Further betting updates will be posted in this thread, and all participants will be tagged in them. So if you're a better, keep an eye on your notifications in the top right.

My strategy: Betting on the underdogs, making some big wins here and there but eventually losing it all like I always do :sad:

I personally think the sheet that Andypierce created looks very beautiful, well done!

@andypierce , after I filled out my sheet today at 2pm my time (8am your time), when I looked for information on these matchups I found that the result for the game ChronoJJ vs Eaglemut had already been posted at 10 am my time (4 am your time).

Maybe it would help if the players of the matches in the betting sheet could send you the time they will play so you can close the betting on these matches in advance. I did not take any benifit on this finding(as I said, I found out afterwards), but the possibilty of someone taking advantage should be considered.

yeah, I am supposed to be closing betting on matches before they are played. it is not really clear to me how I am supposed to do that magically. however, I have the ability to undo any bets that come too late. anyway, I am closing the matches as I see that they are going to be played. (my match, for instance, looks like wont be played until this weekend, so I can leave it open. for the record, I am obviously not betting on that one myself.)

That wasn't meant as a critque, just an observation. Maybe after the participants of a match that had been selected for the betting, they could inform you when they plan to play. Or the results wont be published till the matches are closed. Honestly, I have no clue how to handle it ...

@andypierce : I think there is a check missing in the sheet that you can not bet more points than you own:

It is not a problem with the overview as these points have been entered:

Any way to fix this? Thanks for your time, you are doing an awesome job! :flowers:

@Goodspeed how do you fix the problem when you bet more than the points like I did. Becuz i can bet as if i won previos match and can use that as my points but in this case i lost the bet. And just for the record it feels like you dont check the time players changes the bet @andypierce. Make sure the changes gets canceld

Youre not supposed to bet under the assumption that you will win. I havent built a check like that into the system because people are trustworthy in general. I occasionally manually check for "overbets" in events that I run @andypierce you can check column B in the admin sheet for that. Negative numbers are highlighted.
Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

It went through because there is no such check in the system. You actually can bet more points than you have, the system doesn't care.
So please don't ;) Just means it's more work for the admin.

@andypierce , I think the match between Zerton and Cure may be a better betting match compared to mine and Eery's!
I can't even beat @Oranges.... How am I to go toe to toe with the defending runner up?!

If you are playing in a match that is a betting match. You are allowed to bet on yourself but you can only bet on you winning it 3-0.

@andypierce as of the still open ones only match 3 will take place today, maybe you can leave open matches 1, 2 and 4 another day? All these will take place either Saturday or Sunday GMT. So those that put points in match 3 will have the chance to also bet on any of the following matches. Also it would be great if you could incorporate the result of match 3 tomorrow so the points get released and can be set again.
