The Online Shooter Showdown for this year kicked off today. Unlike the considerably longer MMO Showdown, this tournament will have a very precise system to run it. This system is based largely on seeding to determine the match-ups during a week. The seeding is determined by the predictions of our members with the games that are expected to win the most ranked highest. Please note that Blockstorm is ranked the lowest because it was the very last substitution.  Ok, here are the seedings and how the system works to determine the winner:

Week 1, 2, 3 – Predictions

Week 4 – Elimination round. 4 Match threads(polls) are opened:

5th seed vs 12th seed – winner goes to quarterfinals and gets seeded as 5th
6th seed vs 11th seed – winner goes to quarterfinals and gets seeded as 6th
7th seed vs 10th seed – winner goes to quarterfinals and gets seeded as 7th
8th seed vs 9th seed – winner goes to quarterfinals and gets seeded as 8th

Week 9 – Semifinals, part 2. A match thread(poll) is opened.
The match is:
– 1st seed vs 4th seed – winner goes to final as 1st seed, loser gets ranked as 4th in the overall standings

Week 10 – Finals. A match thread(poll) is opened. The winner of course wins the showdown, the loser gets ranked as 2nd in the overall standings.

Some notes:
1 – in case of a tie at the end of the voting, the game with the lower seed wins due to the fact it managed to secure a draw despite being the underdog. That way we avoid any unnecessary delays.
2 – in case of a tie at the predictions where the seeding is determined, ogreman should rank tied games at random as he is the most unbiased person for the job
3 – in case of delays with starting of match threads/debate threads, the end date for the voting does not get moved to a later date unless we’re talking about a major delay that could affect the outcome of the voting.
