VOW G1 Climax 28 Pick'Em!

Post by Rich Kraetsch » Thu Jun 28, 2018 12:57 pm

For five years now, Voices of Wrestling has hosted the premiere New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax Pick'Em contest.

If you're new to our pick'em game here's the quick and dirty: you'll pick a winner for every single G1 Climax 28 tournament match, determine who you think will win (or if there's a draw) and select your G1 Climax 28 Block winners and runner-ups.

We've included a cheatsheet (downloadable at https://goo.gl/chNk9a) that will make it easier for you to determine who you have taking home the top spot in each block and how your scoring will look when you've made all your picks.

Please be sure to read all these rules carefully. While we're available to take questions throughout the week on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/VoicesWrestling) or on our forums (http://voicesofwrestling.com/forums), this is a huge tournament with a large number of participants. We may not get to every single question or issue, so, again, please read these carefully and make sure you understand the process before contacting us.

Throughout the process, we'll calculate your points and give updates throughout the tournament at voicesofwrestling.com and voicesofwrestling.com/forums.

At the end of the grueling G1 Climax 28 tournament, we'll crown a grand pick'em champion. That champion and those who come in second and third in total point will receive free gifts from our gracious contest sponsors.

Rules

Note that we will ONLY accept entries completed through our Google Form. You can use the downloadable cheat sheet to help make your picks but we will only calculate picks through this Google Form. We cannot accept ballots or entries any other way.

Only one entry per person. Sign-ups will continue until Day 1 of the tournament (July 14).

Points/Scoring Breakdown

You will receive 1 point if you pick the correct match-up winner OR if you pick a draw correctly.

5 points for G1 Climax 28 Winner
3 points for G1 Climax 28 Runner-up
3 points for G1 Climax 28 A Block and B Block Winners
2 points for G1 Climax 28 A Block and B Block Runner-up

Prizes

First place will take home a free hard-cover copy of Chris Charlton's upcoming book on the history of wrestling in the Tokyo Dome (EGGSHELLS). Second place will win a free paperback copy of EGGSHELLS. Third place prize announcement coming soon.

I love when I put stuff into the spreadsheet every year, and end up with a result that I would never have ever picked (Jay White/Hirooki Goto final anyone??!?!!?). But in terms of filling this out, I look at the last two days to see who could still be in contention, and the first two days to see who could get off to a fast start. Also, I look at the main events for each night of the block to see who could be trending up going into that match. I think that gives a good indication for where upsets could occur along the way.

Went with Okada winning the A-Block, and Ibushi winning the B-Block, with Ibushi winning the whole shebang. Ready to get my heart shattered :lol:
