I’m honestly very amused by the fact that my nostalgic brony trash qualified for the playoffs. In fact, the previous Fighting Is Magic song, Twilight Sparkle’s Theme, also received 10 votes. However, as that group had a whopping 25 voters it is unlikely to qualify. When reached for comment about the situation, Twilight had this to say:

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. 2 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+3 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 51 will be active until Tuesday August 24th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 52 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 51 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 51 is open until Tuesday August 24th at 10:00PM Pacific
