Rules

Contest Rules and Regulations

To celebrate the 9th birthday of HeroScapers.com (May 3rd), the Battle Royale is back! Once again, this brute-force popularity contest will feature a new public poll each day for 32 days to decide which units will advance through the tournament.

For the first round of battle (16 polls), six units (four in the VC tourney) will go head-to-head each day, with only the two most popular units advancing to the next round. The remaining 14 battles will have only four units competing each day and will advance the top two. Everyday there will be a poll for Classic and VC.

The Finals for both the Classic and VC bracket will only consist of two units which will be the winners of both semifinals. The Final Finals to crown the Grand Ultimate Champion will consist of the winners of both finals.

(If you want to see how the Battle Royale played out in 2011, click here.)
(If you want to see how the Battle Royale played out in 2014, click here

ENTERING THE CONTEST:
There will be no prizes for the Battle Royale this year, but registered members of HeroScapers.com can compete for prestige and glory by predicting which units will triumph in each daily poll. Members must submit their guesses on what ALL the polling results will be BEFORE the polling begins. Entries will be scored on their accuracy, and the highest scorers will earn the well-deserved respect of their fellow HSers (or custom forum titles, if they'd like--(I assume that LR will once again offer this...but I obviously can't! Don't hold me to it ))

Note that these polls aren't based on which units are the strongest, or the best sculpts, or the most cost-efficient; it's a popularity contest. Game potential will undoubtedly come into play, but people will also vote for units because they look neat, or have cool abilities, or just have a special place in their hearts for no predictable reason. The contest isn't about finding the 'best' units, but rather guessing which units will get the most votes.

To enter the contest, follow these steps.

1. Examine the tournament bracket in the first post and pick the units each round that you think will get the most votes. (1st and 2nd place for each round). A completed entry will consist of 118 numbered unit picks total. You may not select the same unit more than once per round.

2. Go here

3. Go to file and make a copy. Fill out the bracket in your copy.

4. Share it. Picture below for example.



5. Send the link to me via PM.


Entries must be received on or before April 1st, 2015, to be eligible for scoring.

ENTRY SCORING:
In the first round (first 16 polls), entries will score ONE point for each contestant they picked that does actually advance, or TWO points if they predicted the proper standing that day as well. For example, let's say that the "DAY 1" poll ends with "Unit A" in 1st place and "Unit B" in 2nd. An entry that predicted "A" as 1st and "B" as 2nd (right units, in order) would earn 4 points. An entry listing "B" for 1st and "A" for 2nd (right units, wrong order) would only score 2 points. An entry picking "A" as 1st and "D" as 2nd (one unit, proper standing) would also get 2 points. An entry guessing "B" as 1st and "D" as 2nd (one unit, wrong place) would be worth only 1 point.

Each round after the first will score double the points from the previous round. The second round (8 polls) would therefore score 2 points for each correct choice, or 4 each with the proper placing. The third round (4 polls) will likewise score 4 (or 8) points, the fourth round meriting 8 (or 16) points, the fifth round meriting 16 (or 32) points, selection of the grand champion worth 32 points per accurate pick and 64 points for selecting the Ultimate Champion. After all polls have been completed, the grand total of all the points earned by an entry will be that entry's Final Score, that being anywhere between 0 points minimum and 256 points maximum for the Classic and VC brackets.

UNIT SELECTION:

Not all units are present this year. For size purposes because of how ginormous everything was last time, I've pared down the selection and put things into two brackets. This was also done to give new units a chance and also cut out some units that were unlikely to go anywhere. Gone are the top 16 Classic units from last year, the top 12 VC units from last year, and any Classic unit that failed to garner more than 9.1% of the vote during its first round (which sadly includes several favorites). The list is below.

Spoiler Alert!


TECHNICAL NOTES:
Any ties, during daily polls or final scoring, will be broken by d20 roll. Participants must have a valid HSers.com member account to enter, and Administrators and Moderators of HeroScapers.com may enter this contest (with the exception of the contest facilitator, Dysole). Only the first entry per member account will be accepted - no changes or alterations to an entry will be allowed once it is submitted.

If you choose not to fill out the VC portion please inform me of this when you submit. Additionally keep a copy of your bracket, and then you can check that your score is correct!

The way I have it set up it is only two. I could easily adjust it so the finals matchup is the top two Classic and the top two VC units. I do kind of like that idea. If such a change is made I will be sure to announce it and let any previous submissions correct their results.

On the note of voting -- what are the factors? As in, what are we looking for when voting? The sculpt? The theme? The way the unit preforms?

I just skimmed to see if I could find anything; didn't thoroughly read. Thanks.

I think I worded my question poorly...

Is the competition to get into the finals between boxes of the same color (blue/gold-ish) or between boxes on the same side of the bracket (left/right)?

It is built like a standard bracket. I almost had arrows indicating how the bracket went. If that would help let me know.
