The longest-named game of the tournament is also our group champion. Will its long name prove a competitive advantage in the playoffs? I contacted analytics guru Ken Pomeroy, who responded “fuck off” and blocked me on Twitter. An encouraging omen no doubt.
Also, just 4 songs checking in above 40%, which is encouraging news for everyone on that bubble.

The appealingly weird “Karateka” from the appealingly weird Rhythm Tengoku takes 1st in the group! Its beat may be non-stop, but will its playoff performance match?
It’s time for group play! We have 1,358 songs this time; we’re trying out 24-song groups this time, so we have 56 groups of 24, plus a 57th of 14. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! Songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round. 1 After all groups are done, the top 384 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs.
…unless! After group play, but before the playoffs proper, there will be a wild card runoff! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 384, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 385+2 in a play-in round.
We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 11 will be active until Tuesday January 26th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 12 will start Tuesday and be active until Wednesday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.
You can listen to all songs in group 11 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:
Or listen to every song here.
Again, voting for group 11 is open until Tuesday January 26th at 10:00PM Pacific
