2014 FIFA World Cup

Posted by Nascimento on Thursday 05 June 2014

After four long years, it’s finally here! Time to call in sick, fill up the fridge, and buy that TV you always wanted or spend the money on an iPad for your neglected family members to play with for the next month.

To get everyone in the spirit, we are pleased to announce a World Cup give away competition in partnership with WorldSoccerTalk that will be held in #WorldCup.

The competition will take the form of a fantasy football league-style game, with points awarded to each participant for correctly predicting the results of games. The competition will run throughout the tournament (June 12th-July 13th) and the prize will be awarded after the final. The league will be controlled by the QuakeNet World Cup competition service bot, called W. Instructions for using the bot are given below.

The winner can pick any World Cup jersey from WorldSoccerTalk with a retail price of $90 or less.

If you haven't used IRC before, you should take a look at our 'Beginners' guide: How to participate in the World Cup event'

To enter the competition you must have a username on QuakeNet, be authed with that account and present in #WorldCup.

Once you’re in #WorldCup, you can check the list of available games to predict by typing the following command:

/msg W listgames

The channel bot (W) will send you a private message with the available games to predict.

New games are added a day or two in advance, so make sure you follow the channel for updates.

You can predict game results by typing the following command:

/msg W guess <#game id> <winner>

You will receive a reply from the bot with confirmation of your prediction.

Each correct prediction is worth 6 points and every incorrect one is worth -2 points. You can see your current ranking by typing:

/msg W score

Knockout stages: During the knockout stages (1/16 Finals-Final) and in case of extra time with or without penalty shootout, the result of the match is determined by the result of the game after regular time.

The competition starts on June 12th.

In the meantime you can join #WorldCup and participate in our warmup.

So what are you waiting for? join #WorldCup NOW!
