    Error in Group A scoring in my private league
    Has anyone seen an error in group A scoring of the FIFA bracket challenge, some of the members in my league got 38 points even though they picked Egypt to come 3rd and Egypt actually came last

    Just in case anyone's wondering:

    So the leaders in our league with 99 points right now have correctly picked the top two teams for the three groups currently decided (10+10+3 per group). Global leaders with over that also picked at least one whole group correctly in the right order.

    Yeah but some people got 38 points in Group A even though they picked Egypt to come 3rd. I think there is an error

    Hm, my guess is they'll probably figure it out and fix it

    I got 11-16 and got a perfect group F. Was 7-8 picking group winners with Germany being the only miss.

    Missed Germany of course and then Poland. And took a shot with Peru and the mighty Salah's advancing. Other miss was Costa Rica apparently when I coulda sworn I had them 3rd and the Swiss 2nd, must of got heavy handed with the drag and drop lol.

    I got Brazil/Mexico and Colombia/England matchups bang-on, hopefully my winners advance there as well.

    But I also had Germany, Peru, Egypt, Serbia, Poland and Nigeria advancing, so.....yeah. :laugh:

    Who's "Tuggy13", come on admit it :) Three groups I got the top two, the others only one of them, wasn't really expecting to do any better than that with a lot of wishful picks so hey.

    There's a (separate) knock-out phase bracket you can do now too with all the actual games, but I don't think there's any points counted for it, it's just kinda for fun.

    By advancing groups you mean like picking the right team to advance (but possibly not in the right spot)? Huh, now that I look at it, I also got 11/16 by that metric, but all in the right spot.

    That's what I mean, yep. 11/16 teams in the knockout rounds, but almost all in the wrong spot.

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, I got them in the right spot and I'm still only 20th out of 30 :)

    The good part about having at least one team right in each group is that with a bit of luck I could have 6 out of eight teams right in the quarters...
