so what if its a poll? the whole event is a poll and you've still made it awesomely similar to the real thing with the details in the descriptions and conferences and stuff (for people unfamiliar with such events it was sort of confusing at the start. the similarities are so great that I had to look up stuff like "at large bid", so its not just a poll. so I dont think my comparison is any more silly than the details of your own comparisons. maybe change the head of NCAA for a referee or anyone else other than the players if its any less silly now. the point is, those that cast the votes in polls are basically those that are scoring the points for each "team". and well you're the organizer of the event, from my understanding that's pretty much comparable to NCAA. but whatever.....
well the first time you had to cast the vote was not really early on, I think it was the 2nd half of the 2nd round, so the 4th batch of polls. I dont know if that is "late enough", but maybe editing the post or title to say "needs (1) more vote(s)" would have brought in votes quite fast in any case. as for the small time window, I'm really surprised how fast this went. I dont think we were is in such a hurry, I think we could do with a bit more time and less worrying about making sure to not miss any polls :)

Exciting contest.  Thanks for hosting, Merton.

By the way, the sheer amount of content you wrote for this (and other contests - forum Olympus comes to mind) is impressive.

+1 and the quests (as much as people may hate them... or is that love them??)

This was pretty awesome competition Merton :)
I had no clue what was going on early on but gradually got an idea as the contest progressed.

Any chance of doing it again in the next few months? I reckon you'd get a lot more players voting next time around.
Plus would be also good to get players to nominate the contenders next time too.

I really liked your descriptions of each contender too - great stuff!

Thanks!

I was curious what would wind up making the game if people had nominated 68 aspects.

Ideally that's how I would have done it, but I wanted to finish it to coincide with the end of March Madness so didn't do that as I imagine that would have taken quite a while.

It might be fun to to more specific brackets....with a less divisive question.

Most enjoyable fights.  Most influential/gamechanging charms.  Not sure.  What I wanted most out of this was to bring all historic moments and threads back up to the surface for all to see.  Shame most of them performed so poorly  :P

It's only right, it was clearly his fault... Merton...
