Welcome to The Prediction League H2H Event!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What did I get myself into?
Welcome to The Prediction League H2H Competition. This is the doubles portion of The Prediction League. The H2H event pairs you and a partner up to go against another team
during a Round Robin (RR) day. The sum of your team’s daily score (more info below) in comparison to your opponents will determine whether your team wins, lose or tie your match.
Navigate your team out of the group stages and the knockout draw to be crowned champions!
How do I sign up?
Make a post in the prediction league thread to say that you are in. Also indicate whether or not you will be participating in the H2H event.
Is there any additional work that I need to do for H2H?
There is no additional work or picks that you need to do. All you have to do is just make your Prediction League picks, and the H2H Director will take care of the rest.
What if I cannot find a partner?
If you have expressed interest in playing the H2H event, and have not found a partner, then you will be partnered up with someone at random. If a partner cannot be found, you will be
placed on reserves. When you are placed on reserves, you will be put into the game when a player is inactive and have not made any picks for the day.
How does the scoring work?
Your own score and your partner’s daily score from The Prediction League will be added together to create a team score.
What if my partner doesn't make any picks at all?
Unfortunately, this does happen at times. Make sure that you choose a partner where s/he will be committed to the event. If your partner doesn’t make a pick for the day, then your
partner’s score would be the daily lowest score minus five (5) points.
For example: Player A is partnered up with Player B. Player B forgot to make picks for the day. Player A scored 65 points and the lowest score for the day was 42.
Therefore, the combined team score will be 102 points [65 + (42-5)]
How are teams seeded for the event and how many are there?
Teams are seeded based on the combined ranking points they have (see rankings section for more details), in comparison to the rest of the field.
The number of seeds there are depends on the size of the field and the number of groups needed.
What is the format of the event?
The format of the event is roughly based off of the FIFA World Cup, depending on the number of teams participating in the event and the tournament itself. Teams will be randomly
placed in groups during the Round Robin stages. During these stages, your team will face every team in your group at least once. The goal is to gain enough points to get out of the
group stages. A win will give your team 3 points. A tie will give your team 1 point, and a loss no points. Teams that have gained enough points from the Round Robin stages
will advance to the knockout rounds.
How are teams ranked in the group stages?
Teams are ranked based on the number of points they have accumulated in the group stages. If there is a tie, a tiebreaker will be used. Please see the TB section for more info.
What are BYEs and what is their purpose?
BYEs are randomly placed in the group stages only if there are not enough teams to commit to the H2H event. When you play against a BYE, it is an automatic win for your team.
Your team will be given the 3 points for the win, and you will also gain the PF score as well. This will ensure no team will fall below BYE in the Round Robin stages.

What are the tiebreakers and in what scenario do they apply to?
There is a variety of different tiebreakers used in each situation should yours and your opponent's scores are the same:
Scenario 1. Breaking ties in the group stages within your group
There are two (2) tiebreaker rules and they are: 1. Highest PF (Points For), 2. Lowest PA (Points Against) if teams have the same PF score
Scenario 2. Breaking ties in the Quarter-Finals (and Qualifying round, if any)
There are five (5) tiebreaker rules and they are: 1. Points from RR, 2. Higher PF, 3. Combined number of 5 pointers, 4. W/RU picks (if they are still in the tournament,
and 5. Previous round’s winning margin
Scenario 3. Breaking ties in the Semi-Finals, 3rd Place Match and H2H Championship finals
Tiebreaker in the semis and beyond is based on the number of games you think a match will have. It works this way:
FOR EXAMPLE: Say the match was Andy Roddick vs. Tomas Berdych. Roddick wins 7-5, 6-4 in 22 games.
Player A picks Roddick in 2 in 20 games and his partner, B, chooses Roddick in 3 in 26 games.
Opponent C picks Roddick in 3 in 25 games and his partner, D, chooses Roddick in 2, 18 games.
Based on the information above, the tiebreaker score will be calculated as follows:
Team A&B: 2 (22-20) + |-4| (22-26) = 6, Team C&D: |-3| (22-25) + 4 (22-18) = 7
The games TB scores are an absolute value, so there is no penalty for going over or under. The team with the lowest combined games TB score will be declared the
winner of that match. In this example, Team A&B will win this match up.
If a player does not make any games picks, it is assumed that the player has made a pick of zero (0) games
These are the more common tiebreakers in the game. For any other tiebreakers not listed above, they will be announced when the H2H draw has been released.
What are the rankings?
They operate just like the ATP Ranking system. They show how each player has performed in the past 52 weeks. These rankings will help to determine the seeding for each
tournament. The player's ranking points for a particular tournament will count towards your overall rankings until the end of the tournament the following year.
Your final standings in the event will earn you a certain amount of points. For example, if you finish in 3rd Place at Wimbledon, you will receive 810 points towards your overall
rankings and team points (more on this later). If you win the Miami Masters event, you will receive 1000 ranking and team points.
To see the round-by-round point distribution for each event, please click on the "trophies" tab of this spreadsheet.
What is the team race? What is the purpose?
The team race contains all the points that you and your partner(s) have received in the current year. It shows your performance in comparison to your previous year's results (this
would only apply if you have had one partner throughout the previous year). If you have different partners, you will have multiple entries in the race.
The purpose of the team race is to determine the top 8 teams that will qualify for the YEC/WTF event. Grand Slam champions of the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and
the US Open will automatically qualify first for the YEC/WTF event, as long as the team stay in the top 10 of the race. After the Grand Slam champions have qualified,
the next highest non-grand slam winners will qualify for the event. Two (2) alternates will also be named to the field in case a team cannot participate in the event.
