Tournament, Participation and Prizes
As part of its services, Sports Unity may conduct contest(s) on the Sports Unity site. Currently, Sports Unity provides the services:
- Practice quiz matches; and
- Tournament mode quiz matches.
All questions in the quiz competition conducted by Sports Unity have been graded by Sports Unity at its discretion for difficulty. The questions shall be put to the user by Sports Unity (either through a designated person or through an automated system). Individual users wishing to participate in the Sports Unity services ("Participants") may compete in one-on- one ‘super over’ quiz matches with other Participants of Sports Unity site.
Super Over match terminology
- Role – A user when playing a super over quiz match, shall be assigned a role at the beginning., The role can be either ‘batsman’ or ‘bowler’.
- Innings – The duration within a super over quiz match during which a user is the ‘batsman’ is called that user’s innings.
- Runs – A user scores ‘runs’ in a super over quiz match. Whoever scores more runs at the end of the match shall be declared the winner.
- Agression Meter – The bowler ends the batsman’s innings by filling up his/her own aggression meter during the super over quiz match.
- Out – When a bowler fills up his/her aggression meter to end the batsman’s innings, the batsman is declared ‘out’.
A super over quiz match comprises a set of twelve (12) questions spread evenly across two (2) overs. One of the users shall be randomly selected to ‘bat’ first while, the other user by default is then the ‘bowler’ at the beginning of the match.
When a user is batting, he/she can score ‘runs’ by answering quiz questions accurately and faster than the ‘bowler’. If the batsman answers first and answers correctly, he/she scores runs depending on the speed of answering.
Conversely, if the bowler answers first and answers correctly, then the batsman gets zero (0) runs for that question and the bowler’s aggression meter level increases (by an amount proportional to the speed of answering).
After the first six (6) questions or if the batsman gets ‘out’, the above stated ‘roles’ switch, i.e., the batsman becomes the bowler while the bowler becomes the batsman. Once the innings of both the users are over, the user with more runs wins the match. If both the users score the same number of runs, then, the match is declared a ‘tie’. If a user abandons a match, the other user wins by default.
Tournaments – A tournament is a group of two (2) or more users participating in a timed event lasting a duration that is pre-specified on the Sports Unity site. When a user participates in a tournament, he/she is required to play super over quiz matches as part of the tournament.
