  3. * The 2015 Guru Contest - Post your bracket, earn eternal fame! *
Post your tiebreaker first, it often disappears after lockdown.

Welcome to the Guru Contest for this very exciting 2015 BGE bracket! Normally we try to launch this right around bracket lockdown time, but with four matches happening every day we're going to try to get everything entered a little sooner this year. If you've never played before the Guru is a competition open to everyone on B8, just post your bracket in this topic and we'll get it uploaded to the website which will track everyone's progress automatically from now through Christmas when a winner is raised to everlasting fortune and fame. Before you enter though just keep in mind the two parts of the Guru Contract:

1. you must congratulate the winner in your board signature and keep that up for two weeks
2. you will owe one of your nominations for the next Contest to the winner, who gets to pick any entrant of their choice for us all to support

If that sounds good then it's bracket posting time! There's two methods to getting your entry in this year

Old fashioned way - type in all your winning picks by hand, remember to leave spaces between R1/R2 etc and don't forget that tiebreaker

High Tech way - you can post a link to your bracket directly using the source code, if you want to save yourself some typing you can try to follow these steps

1. http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/bge20_entry In Chrome you can right click and select “View Page Source”
2. Do a search for <table class="bracket"> (should be around line 180), highlight from there to the end of the bracket aka <th colspan="4">Start Again</th> (around line 1038) and copy
3. Go to https://jsfiddle.net/ and paste into the box titled HTML
4. Click Run, then click Save, your url bar will update with a unique link.
6. Paste that link in here.

Doing that will get us only your bracket though so post your TB manually alongside the link.

Okay that should cover it, good luck everyone!
---

Clarification 1- the Guru should be identical to your "official" prize-winning (if you're eligible) bracket, not what you "meant to put." Double check http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/bge20_entry NOW to make sure you're not stuck with a misclick come lockdown time!

Clarification 2- if you're still not sure about some picks, DON'T POST YOUR BRACKET YET! You'll have 48 hours after lockdown to get it entered; we'd rather have you submit a little late versus having 13 corrections for us to make on the website later.

PS - Would you like to help me and Guru co-host Ange with bringing the site up to date? We could use assistance with getting brackets entered on to the website; if that sounds like something you're interested in let us know and we'll assign you a page you can work on!

Ah yes I guess the highlighting is lost so we're not able to see for sure who you picked to win in the Final Match.

If you're picking something NOT named Ocarina of Time to win it all, really super important for you to mention that in your post!

In other news, here's a freshly updated look back at Guru history, for those so inclined.

Actually, you could detect which game was picked by looking at the class name in the source code. For a bracket with Ocarina of Time winning the entire thing, the source code would look like this:

<span id="b127-2" class="picked"><a onclick="pick( 127, 65)">Zelda: Ocarina of Time</a></span><br>

If the class name says "picked", it means you picked the game to win the contest (or move onto the next round for the earlier rounds). If the class name "not_picked" appears on any games in your bracket, it means you have it losing to its opponent.

True that it missed the bracket HOWEVER keep in mind it had more than enough support to make the top 100 strictly for nominations, it was only bumped out due to being a PC port that didn't have good professional reviews. We won't run into that problem again next Contest (assuming we shift back to characters).

Question

Can I post my girlfriends bracket? Her account is too new to post on this board at this point and time. She made one just to enter the BGE contest and she would like to do this for fun as well.


What's her username? Should be fine

Can you just post your changes in a post? It's easier for me to edit an old bracket than dig through a new one


Oh yeah sure


Changed Oblivion > Super Mario RPG to Super Mario RPG > Oblivion

Changed Grand Theft Auto V > Oblvion to Super Mario RPG > Grand Theft Auto V

Changed Grand Theft Auto V > San Andreas to Super Mario RPG > Chrono Cross

Changed WoW > Chrono Cross to Chrono Cross > WoW

Changed San Andreas > WoW to Chrono Cross > San Andreas

Changed RE4 > GTA V to RE4 > Super Mario RPG


Like I said in BOP, these might be STRANGELY similar to The Show but I was really on the fence with them most of the time I was making my bracket.

Sorry NGamer I'm a bad person it was brought to my attention that my memory is faulty re:old results and I jumped the gun when posting earlier (It's since been deleted since you haven't added it yet) <_<


Thankfully it was not inputted yet

Ngamer, my bracket was posted incorrectly. The link I provided had KOTOR beating Xenogears, and yet my bracket has a Xenogears victory.

NEW High Tech way - you can post a link to your bracket directly using the source code, if you want to save yourself some typing you can try to follow these steps

1. http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/bge20_mybracket In Chrome you can right click and select “View Page Source”
2. Do a search for <h1 class="page-title">Best. Game. Ever. My Bracket</h1> (should be around line 160), highlight from there to the end of the bracket aka </tbody> </table> (around line 990) and copy
3. Go to https://jsfiddle.net/ and paste into the box titled HTML
4. Click Run, then click Save, your url bar will update with a unique link.
6. Paste that link in here.

SB's bracket is FAKE for the moment, if he puts himself on the leaderboard like he did in the past we'll do our best to figure out his picks, if not I'll have to kill him and swap in yoblazer.

SB doesn't actually put himself on the leaderboard in a technical sense. What he does do is have it so the stats/leaderboard page will always show his current score, as you can see on this page:

I have a few problems with my bracket - I made some changes that are in my official bracket, but when I copied the source code in those picks were still the old ones. Is it too late to fix this? My guru entry has Melee > CT and Starcraft > ME2 but my official bracket has CT > Melee and ME2 > Starcraft.


I have the same problem. I should have Chrono Cross > World of Warcraft and Fire Emblem: Awakening > Super Mario Maker in round 1, and Xenoblade Chronicles > Fire Emblem: Awakening and Chrono Cross > Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in round 2.
Less than 20 Gurus will have 4 out of 4 correct! Man!

You said my bracket was fixed but it doesn't actually appear to be changed at all.
Dupes:

Paratroopa1
RockMFR

Dupes due to a typo:

Datbooty/Dasbooty
Tirofog/Tirofrog (some of the picks are different)
My bracket is all good on the site. Thanks guys

(even though it's so awful that it turned so-bad-its-good in the MST3K sense, but kept being so horrible that it flipped back to the regular king of bad)
The entry listed under Tirofog should have Chrono Cross beating WoW and Shovel Knight and losing to Oblivion. I believe it's correct besides that.

The "Today's Pick" column in the Guru ranking site only showing the first match is kind of weird.

Also kind of useless, since the first match is always the higher seed, which everyone is betting into.

Any plans on fixing that?
Just go to the site and select next match to see the other matches man. Or you are asking something different?

Oh, I see. Thanks.

Still, it would be cool if all 4 match picks could appear in the main page. So we could compare all the players and see what points they will score. I mean, it seems that is what the column was implemented for, but it's stuck in an old contest format.

Not meaning to be a jerk or anything, just suggesting an improvement.

Risks are just anything that goes against the majority Guru pick for a match. Since vast majority of brackets are in and the general most well popular picks for a match are settled, at least to me there isn't a need to update the what's a "risky" pick because nothing will change

Updating Risk numbers for all users is as easy as pressing a button

Sounds like something that would take a while to happen, since later matches are worth more.

I mean, the guy who predicted Draven could have been trailing behind 70+ points and still win the contest.
(edited 2 days ago)reportquote
but if no one picks Draven that's not a possibility. we'll see some cookie brackets start to go down towards the end of r1, probably, and then some awful brackets stick around because hey Super Mario RPG is not eliminated and you have it going to the finals which is technically possible.

Mega Mana's bracket is nuts, for example (Arkham City over Chrono Trigger!), but he's got Minecraft winning so that bracket will be around until it loses.

Which might happen in two days, lol.

I'm one of the 20% who have Minecraft winning, btw. Only on round 1, because I'm not crazy. But I can't shake the gut feeling that if there is still one match where the kiddies' vote matters, it's this one.

Also lol Halo.

If you have the exact same bracket as someone else,with the exclusion of say one match... as soon as that match occurs one of you will be eliminated. This tends to get people without very many upsets eliminated earlier than those with divergent brackets.

At a glance I don't see any errors. I think you've got most of my oddities. There are fewer than there were once were when I first filled the bracket, so I guess only 20 risks seems about right.

Osfan, I give you props for being willing to take Fallout 3 to the semis. I kept wanting to do that and just couldn't justify it running the gauntlet, but I do believe it could happen.

I've always wondered how it was done in the past. Like, I've never been clear on, mathematically, what sort of heuristics were involved in determined these eliminations. Is it just brute force in comparing to every other bracket in terms of variance remaining? Brute force seems easy enough -- you pretend a bracket is 100% correct, and see if it still fails to come in 1st. However, that doesn't get joint eliminations.
