Is Melee’s excellent arrangement of “Fountain of Dreams” the first instance of Sakurai showing favoritism to his other games? Regardless, we’ve certainly shown it favoritism with a strong 60% ranking.

Nooo, not “Team Chaotix”! A song that should have been famous for almost saying “ass” in a Sonic game before it was rudely usurped by Shadow The Hedgehog‘s sailor mouth.

It’s time for group play! We have 1,086 songs in this tournament; they have been broken up into 34 groups of 322. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! We’re doing things a little differently this time around. Winning your group no longer means anything; instead, songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round.3 After all groups are done, the top 256 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs!

…unless! By popular demand, we’re also implementing a diversity system! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 256, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 257+4 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 28 will be active until Thursday September 17th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 27 is active until 10:00 pm tonight; vote here. Group 29 will start Thursday and be active until Friday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 28 in this handy YouTube playlist!  (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)

You can work ahead if you like:

Again, voting for group 28 is open until Thursday, September 17th at 10:00PM Pacific
