Our first song to break 70%, Dark Pit wins this strong group going away. I’ve never played Kid Icarus: Uprising, but this was a song I knew anyway thanks to its inclusion in Smash Bros. Even when it’s not in the tournament, it’s in the tournament.
Elsewhere, Portal 2 doubles its predecessor’s accomplishments by placing two songs into the playoffs*.
*(Probably at least. Unless we start going just exceptionally crazy with upvotes)
It’s time for group play! We have 1,866 songs this time, in 24-song groups. That means 77 full groups, plus a 78th group of 18. 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 512 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 512, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 513+2 in a play-in round.
We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 9 will be active until Friday June 25th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 8 is still active until 10 PM tonight; vote here. Group 10 will start Friday and be active until Sunday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.
You can listen to all songs in group 9 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 9 is open until Friday June 25th at 10:00PM Pacific
