Thread: 2016 Coachella Lineup Pool

  1. #1

    Default 2016 Coachella Lineup Pool

    REQUIREMENTS

    You MUST list 25 acts.
    The first 3 must be your headliners. 3 pts each
    The next 22 will be you undercard guesses. 1 pt each

    If you predict an act as a headliner but they end up NOT being a headliner, yet still a performer, they will count as one point. If you predict an act as a performer and they end up being a headliner, you get one point (not three, since you didn’t exactly call it correctly).


    HOW TO ENTER

    Email your predictions and username at coachellapredictions@gmail.com


    RESTRICTIONS

    Acts that are considered "confirmed" will be restricted. I will decide what is and isn't confirmed. As of today, no act is restricted. Like last year, if an act gets confirmed and added to the “restricted” list before the deadline and you’ve already submitted your list with that band on it, you get the point for it, even though that band is restricted for everyone else.

    Confirmed Artist:
    Black Coffee
    Dubfire
    Gary Clark Jr.
    Lost Frequencies
    St. Germain


    PRIZE:

    $50 Amoeba Gift Certificate
    A beer or food at the fest
    And some mystery prizes.

    Runner up will also get a mystery prize.

    DEADLINE

    October 15, 2015

    Complete failure to acknowledge the possibility that there will be more than 3 headliners, as there were in 2013, 2011, and, sort of, 2008.

    What would you have people do, cuck? Everyone guess four even though there usually aren't?

    Let's throw something new in. The person with the least points gets a one year ban from the boards and forfeits their 2016 wristband.

    idle threats, seeing as moto rave doesn't go to coachella and probably knows how to get around a ban.

    Geoff,

    Since we added Gary Clark Jr. to the restricted artists after I submitted my list replace that with Beach House.

    Thanks

    There seems to be an assumption that I would participate in such a pointless exercise. You know what is popularly said about assumptions...

    What I would have "people", by which you mean innumerates, do would be not delude themselves into thinking there's any sort of rational basis whatsoever to this undemocratically-chosen, ahistorical, and unscientific point system, inclusive of the completely-arbitrarily-designated number of acts to be selected. There are multiple ways to address the very real possibility of a fourth headliner that should be reckoned with as long as you require entrants to guess all of the headliners. One approach would allow the designation of a fourth headliner slot (among 25), granting 3 points each to those who select three acts, and 2.5 each to those who select four (for a maximum of 10 pts from the first four picks, whichever number of headliners is selected). Another approach would keep the three-headliner-slot limit but allow the selection of a fourth act on one of the three lines, awarding either three each to those alone on a line and 1.5 each to those sharing one (for a maximum of of 9 either way), or 2-2.25 each to all four however paired, perhaps with a 1-pt bonus for getting the pair right (that I think would be deserved even if it allowed the guesser an extra point over the three-headliner guesser - after all, they guessed more correctly). A third approach would do away with the guess-the-headliners requirement wholesale and simply allow the selection of 25 (or some other better-defended number of) required acts however one sees fit. Yes, this would allow someone to guess four or five or even 25 headliners, but everyone would have the same opportunity, and each additional headliner guess would be an undercard guess lost - a gamble on +3 with the odds pointing towards -1 in opportunity cost - such that someone who guessed only headliners would probably end up with no more than 9-12 points.

    Oh, and cute epithet my little sex offender, however amateurishly aimed (suffice it to say no one's ever put a ring on this ms. thing), but don't imagine for a second that you aren't speaking to a league for which you lack the necessary equipment.

    To be fair, he has previous for selecting 25 headliners.

    Or, instead of this convoluted bullshit, everyone can just guess three (of three or more headliners), just like they guess just 22 undercard names out of more than 150.

    I was thinking if you truly believe there will be a 4th headliner this year add them to the headliners section, but if you're wrong about one you'll lose -3 points rather than zero.

    Hmm...so if say Beach House is marked as a double header but only subs then I lose 3 points?
