Melee’s in a delicate dance re:diversity rounds. It seems like every Melee song that makes it in just displaces another on the bubble. It’s sitting at 11 in right now (with 1 under 40). Will it join Final Fantasy X? For more we turn to our resident playoff forecaster, Shinigami Apple Merchant!

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 30 will be active until Sunday September 20th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 29 is active until 10:00 pm tonight; vote here. Group 31 will start Monday and be active until Tuesday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 30 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 30 is open until Sunday September 20th at 10:00PM Pacific
