ORIGINAL STORY

Every four years the world comes together to celebrate the beautiful game... and diving... and faking injuries... and gamesmanship... but mostly football/soccer. That's right, TAers, it's time for THE WORLD CUP.

As an international community, the Community & Events Team has cooked up a way to bring us all together in the spirit of national pride and sports prognostication with the TA World Cup 2014.

This event has two different ways to participate:

Fantasy Football

You know it, you love it, and you've probably hated it at least a time or two, but we've set up a special TA league for the 2014 World Cup edition of Fantasy Football. We'll be coordinating the league through FIFA World Cup Fantasy Football and it's set to open on June 8th. You can check out rules and the FAQ for more specific information on the league, scoring, and all of the specific bits and bobs for the event.

In this competition, everyone within the TA league is competing against each other to claim the championship. You'll be tasked with creating a squad from the thirty-two World Cup teams and will earn points based on each individual player's performance during the tournament.

To join us, first register on TrueAchievements, then join the following TA league:

Don't everybody rush at once, I've already picked up Landon Donovan.

Predictor Challenge

In this competition, everyone in the TA league will compete against each other based on the predictions of various aspects of each match, as chosen by FIFA. You may either make ALL of your predictions at once or take them a day at a time. It's important to note that there is a golden question for each match. This golden question is only available 24 hours before each match begins, so you'll want to check back daily.

Registration is already open for the Predictor Challenge and you can click here to register and join in the games. Rules and FAQ can be found here and here respectively.

As an added bonus, the TA league will also compete against other leagues worldwide, with an average score being taken from everyone that joins. Seriously, gang, let's get Drago on everyone!
