Did France Defeat England in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Finals?

This is with reference to the game France vs. England on July 15th, 2018

For further context, this is the question that has been in dispute since the World Cup ended, and is the longest-running disputed question in the network. In reality, England did not advance to the finals, and so the game in the description did not take place.

    Might do well presenting context links. My other comment has a few to Wikipedia. – Noel Maersk Sep 13 '18 at 14:54
  • Thanks Check those out all. For further context, this is the question that has been in dispute since the WC ended. Someone is about to lose a decent chunk of money, and the network might have its first test to see what happens if $ on the line gets too big... do we fork from this? – hedgedandlevered Sep 14 '18 at 13:27

    Please edit your question (dont just add comments) to provide more context. Make it clear why you are asking (its relation to the market resolution dispute). – 254123179 Sep 16 '18 at 0:29
  • I did it. Can you take it off hold now? If it's not clear what I'm asking, please upvote "invalid" below, as that is the point of my question, which is on-topic. – hedgedandlevered Sep 20 '18 at 14:00
  • Here's an IPFS link for a screenshot how the market info is displayed in the Augur UI. I'd give an augur.casino link, too, but that seems down ATM. – Noel Maersk Sep 21 '18 at 22:12

This question is invalid

The game referenced below the question ("France vs. England on July 15th, 2018") did not take place, so this question cannot be resolved and is invalid.



England did not advance to the finals, so France certianly did not defeat England in the finals

  • This is the one I'd tend to think it was. This is like any other event, betting whether it happens or not. I don't see how this is any different from "does it rain on X day (from clouds above NYC on October 1st)", then it being sunny, and the argument being "well there weren't any clouds so how could it rain? Invalid." – hedgedandlevered Sep 14 '18 at 13:21
  • anyone have thoughts on this? – hedgedandlevered Sep 20 '18 at 14:02
  • I feel that the "rains on D" example doesn't exactly capture the ambiguity of the "F vs E" question, but I'm unable to present a better one ATM. :( – Noel Maersk Sep 25 '18 at 10:42
  • "Will it rain in New York state (NY) this autumn? // In Teterboro (TEB) airport on October 1st?" is a bit closer, but still not the same. (I did a quick search to construct this: TEB is the closest airport to New York's JFK that is not in New York state - it's in New Jersey.) – Noel Maersk Sep 25 '18 at 13:44
  • Say that it indeed didn't rain in New York state all autumn, and it didn't rain in New Jersey either. This has no bearing on the fact that the question is poorly-formed. – Noel Maersk Sep 25 '18 at 13:50

    Yes, this is why this question has been in dispute on Augur for 8 weeks. – hedgedandlevered Sep 14 '18 at 13:25
