IMPORTANT: FanYard Scoring System Change

There has been a groundswell of rumors regarding the scoring system for your picks at TheFanYard.com. While it has been confirmed that, yes indeed, a change is coming, pretty much all you have been told – if you have asked – is that you should pick as accurately as possible as to what you believe the outcome of the game will be.

Today, those changes will finally be launched.

There will be some changes to your scores and Leaderboard placement, as these changes will be retroactive to the start of the season for each sport. These changes will reflect accuracy in your picks and display a better yardstick of your ability to gauge the outcome of games – excuse the pun.

If your pick on a game is exactly correct, you receive 100 points for that pick. As your pick gets away from the exact outcome, either higher or lower, you will lose ten points for each point you were away, until you receive zero points. A pick must be for the winning team in order to receive points. There are no negative points given.

Ranking will still occur, based upon points awarded. You will also be able to see your total picks, how many wins you have and, much more importantly, how many of your wins were awarded points. You will also be able to see the number of exact picks, or “Direct Hits” you have accumulated. All of these stats will be viewable in whole numbers and in percentages.

The system changes will be in effect for all football and basketball predictions and picks on both the professional and collegiate levels.
