GCL Madness 2016 - Round 2
Round 2 Rules
Round 1 eliminated 32 games and sent 32 more to the Losers' Bracket. The matches from now on will be head-to-head matches between games in the same bracket (Winners' or Losers'), with games eliminated from the main tournament after two losses.
We will also start a consolation bracket this round, starting with 32 games from the Preliminary Round - games with at least 6 votes in a Group, 8 votes in Wild Card 1, or 9 votes in Wild Card 2. The games eliminated from the main tournament will have a round off before entering the consolation bracket (to keep the total number of matches manageable early on), so the games just eliminated in Round 1 will show up again in Round 3. The consolation bracket will have a mix of two-way, three-way, and four-way matches, in order to reduce the games more quickly and catch up a bit with the main tournament.
• Round 2: 32 in Winners Bracket, 32 in Losers' Bracket, 32 in Consolation (+32 Waiting)
• Round 3: 16 W, 32 L, 48 C (+16)
• Round 4: 8 W, 24 L, 32 C (+16)
• Round 5: 4 W, 16 L, 24 C (+12)
• Round 6: 2 W, 10 L, 24 C (+8)
• Round 7: 1 W, 6 L, 16 C (+5)
• Round 8: 1 W, 3 L (remaining matchups among top 4 to determine champion), 12 C
Voting is open only to GameChat League members and regular contributors to a GCL (others will be disregarded). If you are not on a GCL roster, please add a comment letting me know which GCL(s) you contribute to so that your vote is not ignored. If you are a member/contributor, feel free to vote even if you haven't nominated or voted in previous rounds!
In each matchup, vote for as many games as you like - how you determine your favorite(s) is up to you. You are of course free to abstain if you feel you are not able to make a sufficiently informed decision; however, you are not required to have played any of the games to vote.
New this year: Vote trading will not be allowed in the main tournament (Rounds 1-9).
Ties will be broken by number of nominations, followed by number of top 12 lists, followed by Borda count, followed by me holding up pictures of the two games and letting my 2.5 month old choose.
In some cases similar games were combined, and entries with multiple editions are meant to include all/your-choice-of-all editions. Expansions are also included (if you prefer).
Vote with your thumbs! Each round will last about four days. If you haven't already, make sure you subscribe to GCL Madness Subscription Thread so you don't miss a round...
