Bronze too?' because I can see my match. And to be honest that worries me - what's stopping me from losing that match on purpose to earn some money? I am going to lose nevertheless, but I can see that it could lead to some shenanigans.

Edit: Oh right... April the first :D You got me, Cygnus, brilliant! :D

I feel like it would be a good feature to also just be able to bet on the winner of each match, for less money. Betting on a quidditch match that has an indefinite run time is kind of hard. I had a game last season where my team average was like 10 points higher than my opponent, but the game only lasted like an hour and a half. Instead of blowing him out (I was hoping I'd hit 1000 points) I beat him by like 70-100. Likewise, two evenly matched teams that play for 6 hours are going to score waaaay more points, even if the point differential still comes down to less than 100.
