## World Cup Predictor Brazil - Chile, correct calculation with penalties on? (3 posts)

In my setup points are as follows

Exact: 6 points
Draw: 4 points
Win: 3 points
Bonis points: 1 each

For Brazil-Chile, a user predicted 2:2 and 4:3 in penalties. He got 4 points only as somebody who predicted 2:1 (after 90 minutes).

Is the calculation correct? i thought the first user would 4 points for the draw plus 3 points for the winner plus 1 bonus point for the goal difference during penalties.

The bĂ´nus is valid only for goals in regular time. Draw and win is not cumulative.

That is, the user will get only 4 points for hitting a draw. And win bonus by goal difference if you would use.

My points are configured this way:
Exact = 4
Draw = 2
Win = 2
Bonus per goal = 1

The match ended in Brazil 1(3)-1(2) Chile, and I have these two cases:
1) Brazil 1(5)-1(3) Chile = 4 points, which I assume are 2 for each goal in the draw and 2 for win, this one is fine

2) Brazil 1(3)-1(5) Chile = 4 points. 2 of these I assume are for each goal in the draw, but what about the other 2?
