We’re fast approaching that wonderful time of year some folks call ‘Christmas’, which means many in the scene will be preparing to take a break. With that said, there’s still a fair few games for you to sink your psychic teeth into! November saw the tail end of the DreamLeague Season 10 Minor and The Kuala Lumpur Major as we completed the first round of DPC events for the new season. Add in the qualifiers for The Chongqing Major and it was a busy month indeed for our budding Oracles. But who was top dog?

As you can see, all plaudits went to LuckySniper, whose 12.1-point winning margin saw a jump from fourth in October to the Oracle title — and one of those sweet Steam gift cards.

With a 71.5% success rate from exactly 200 guesses they weren’t the most accurate (top three), but sometimes in this game it’s not just about accuracy — you need to play more, too! Here’s looking at you, De3 — your 75.8% was astounding, but if you’d just played a little more…

Coming in second is Alenka with another consistent performance to move up a place from last month. Taking the bronze medal — or is it a bronze Steam Card? — is rafiuski, a new entry to our top ten. Congrats, all!

What do we have to round out 2018?

There are two notable events happening between now and the winter break. Firstly, the MegaFon Winter Clash kicks off tomorrow — with a whopping $300,000 prize pool, six top teams will be scrapping for the largest share of that dinero. There are also the qualifiers for ESL One Katowice 2019, and the culmination of joinDOTA League Season 14 — ALL THE GAMES!

Making predictions on joinDOTA is easy! Just make sure you're logged in to your account on the site, then use either the coin symbol on the match ticker or click "jD Oracle" on the Events section of the menu. Either one will take you to a page that displays the next six matches open for predictions. As soon as you predict a match, it will disappear and a new one will pop in to take its place.

A little further down the page you'll see the rankings (click "Show all" to find past months). Your most recent predictions will be displayed at the bottom. You can find a detailed explanation of how it all works here. And for a detailed breakdown of the formula, see final comment on this thread.

Good luck!
