VOW G1 Climax 27 Pick'Em (Standings & Discussion)

For the fourth consecutive year, Voices of Wrestling is hosting a NJPW G1 Climax Pick'Em contest. For our first-timers, welcome, this may seem overwhelming at first but you'll get the hang of it quickly, we promise.

Like prior year's G1 Climax contents, you'll pick every single G1 Climax tournament match, determine who you think will win (or if there's a draw) and select your G1 Climax 27 Block winners and runner-ups.

We've included a cheat sheet (downloadable at http://www.goo.gl/H4wRg2) that will show the progress as you make your picks on the Google Form. This 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 read all these rules carefully. While we're available to take questions throughout the week on Twitter (@VoicesWrestling) or on our forums (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 27 tournament, we'll crown a grand pick'em champion. That champion and those who come in second and third in total point will receive package of gifts from our gracious contest sponsors Gaijin Collectibles (http://gaijincollectibles.com) and Jeff Martin (HEAT & Wrestlemon Comic).

Rules

Note that we will ONLY accept entries completed through this 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 17).

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 27 Winner
3 points for G1 Climax 27 Runner-up
3 points for G1 Climax 27 A Block and B Block Winners
2 points for G1 Climax 27 A Block and B Block Runner-up

Thanks Rich. Now I just have to choose whether to go safe and finish middle of the pack or go slightly mad with my scenarios and guarantee a top place finish.

I've been agonising about this since last night. I want to be a genius like last time predicting Kenny Omega!

I went with the mad scenario. Thus begins a month of regret.

I will say at this point I think Naito is the obvious choice but I went another direction because it's a better shot at me winning this thing if it does happen.

Quick question: How will y'all score the Runner-Up for one of the blocks if two guys tie? As in, they went to a draw against each other and ended with the same amount of points in a tie for second place behind the block winner.

I just submitted my entry, but realized I had my B Block Runner-Up math off.Is there a way to email the change or do I need to resubmit my form?

Pretty sure I went 5/5 on the first night of 2015 and 2016.

2/5 this time around. Doesn't bode very well.

If you wouldn't mind, could you check if my points (1/5) is correct? On my cheatsheet I had two winners (ZSJ and Naito), I understand that I may have in put my winners incorrectly on the application tho. My names PhilOC.

1/5. If Juice is getting wins this early I'm worried I have limited feel for the booking this time around.
