The Sports Predictions component ( http://3dwebdesign.org/sports-predictions-for-joomla ) gives you the opportunity to organize sport results predictions competitions for a team vs. team sports as soccer predictions, football, basketball predictions, hockey predictions etc. You may use it for a person vs. person sports (e.g. tennis, billiard, chess, etc.) as well.
This joomla component is great idea to organize soccer or other sports predictions games.
The sport events are organized into tournaments. You may use the tournaments field to distinguish between the different sports. Component is multilanguage, all titles come from language files. You can rename title to Soccer expert, Basketball Expert or Hockey Expert if you wish. In demo site this is renamed to "Soccer expert".
When a sport event's final result is published in the backend, all the users who has placed their predictions for this sport event's outcome are given points depending on their predictions success.
Currently you may assign points for the following prediction outcomes:
1) Exact prediction: the predicted result is an exact match (default 3 points);
2) Winner & points difference: guessed winner and points difference (default 2 points);
3) Guessed draw, points - not: guessed draw but not the points (default 2 points);
4) Guessed winner: guessed only the winner (default 1 points);
5) Wrong prediction: wrong prediction (default 0 points).
6) Or 1, X, or 2 for "1x2" game.
The points awarded can have negative value, e.g. for a wrong prediction.
Sports Predictions is extremely powerful, flexible and easy to manage from the backend. I've been running prediction leagues on my site with many users and it works effortlessly. All you have to do is set up your teams, leagues and upcoming games, then assign the games to the appropriate league(s). Users have options to enter score prediction or margin predictions.
The standings views update instantly when result is entered in backend. Standings have almost unlimited filtering and sorting options to determine how you want your winner to be found and how you want the standings to be displayed to users simply by manipulating the URL query string.
The new primary scoring options test for accuracy over quantity which means your users don't fall way behind if they miss some games so their interest stays peaked to continue playing and not drop out. In addition, users can view personal statistical history with a chart to visualize performance by week, day and year. You will find several other goodies packed in this component.
The best part is the guys at 3D Web Design are extremely helpful and forward thinking so expect even more great additions to be included in future versions.
Sorry, that you are not satisfied with our component! "You can not set matchdays" is not true! All matches are created by you with date and time. Especially for you we will accelerate the launch of new version of the component for joomla 3.0. In this version, the ranking is calculated dynamically and is for a period of your choice, not only by month. The new version will have also many other extras. You can download it tomorrow, 06 November, at end of the day.
