    Smackdown is kicking off the new year on January 1st. So, we're gonna get the 2019 predictor challenge going. 2018 was a weird as fuck year, with firings, retirements, shake-ups, new titles being introduced and injuries, but now it's time to see if @D.R.H. will win for a third consecutive year, or if we'll get a new champion.

    The Game Card will be the same as last year. So, for those wanting to join in, I'll repost the rules:

    Game 1: Championship Challenge.
    1. I am going to make a list of every belt in WWE and NXT as well as the Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank (Not including the UK titles, as no one knows anybody in the division.)
    2. You can name as many people as you want for each championship
    3. For each person you correctly predict you will be awarded 5pts
    4. To deter people from just naming the entire roster, you will lose 2pts for each person who does NOT win the championship you have listed.
    5. In the Tag Team divisions, you may pick singles competitors, and if their team wins the titles, you will be awarded 2pts, if two of them win, you will be awarded 2 pts for each member (so, if you have Baron Corbin and Kane listed, and they win together, you get 4pts, however, if you list "Baron Corbin & Kane" as a team, you'll get the full 5pts)
    6. You do not get points for the current champions, they would have to lose, and then regain the championships for the points to be counted.
    7. You only get the points for each correct guess, number of reigns do not matter, so if you pick Roman Reigns to win the Universal Championship, and he wins it twice, you don't get another 5 points.
    8. If your guy wins the Royal Rumble or Money in the bank, you will be awarded 10pts.
    So, to clarify, the points breakdown is as follows:
    • Correct pick = 5pts
    • Single pick for Tag Team Championship = 2pts
    • Incorrect pick = -2pts
    • Royal Rumble/Money in the Bank Winner = 10pts
    Game 2: General Predictions:
    1. You make 5 General Predictions for the year, and for each correct prediction, you will be awarded a further 10 points.
    2. To deter people from just saying "X NXT wrestler will be called up", NXT call ups will not be counted as predictions.
    3. Championship predictions won't be counted either, as that defeats the purpose of Game 1.
    4. Actually be specific, shit like "Someone's gonna turn heel" and "This guy will win a match this year" isn't going to be counted

    I'll have the deadline set around the Rumble.

    UPDATE: The deadline will be Sunday 20th January. That is ONE WEEK BEFORE THE RUMBLE.

    UPDATE 2: Women's Tag Team Championship added. They're in the "Other" category for now, until more details have been announced, but, the same rules apply:
    • 5pts for a correct Tag Team
    • 2pts for a correct singles pick (so, if you have Bayley, and Sasha Banks picked, you get 4, however, if you have Bayley/Sasha as a team, that's 5)
    • -2pts for incorrect picks
    UPDATE 3: To make more points available, Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal also added to "Other" Category. Same rules apply, 10pts for a correct pick, but no points taken away for an incorrect pick.

    Conservative strategy, could pay off huge. But, what constitutes "a lot"?

    Now, I will say this, until the deadline, (23.59 ET on Sunday 20th January, which is 04.59 GMT for us in Britain), you can tinker with your picks as much as you see fit.

    I know, I haven't gotten round to it. I don't know if they're just a stand alone title, or if they're over two brands. But, I'm VERY happy that we didn't hit the deadline yet.

    I might start a thread where people make suggestions, and I work out how it would go.

    The E is such a mess I dont have any suggestions, other than Lars hitting SD and hotshotting the territory like the Shield or Nexus. We need something, dammit!

    In the spirit of fair competition, do you mean "The APA" as in "Bradshaw and Faarooq", or "The AoP" as in "Akam and Rezar"?
