It's a Knockout! 2012/13: Game Vote

It's a Knockout! 2012/13: Game Vote


Starts: 00:01 November 11 Finishes: 23:59 November 24

Here we go again. The Super League takes a back seat for seven weeks and the ever-popular knockout tournament takes centre stage once more. Thanks to mihcael for the excellent banner above.

Rules

Knockout rules are here. Please read this one...

Your first choice gets 5 points, second 4 pts, third 3 pts, fourth 2 pts, fifth 1 pt. Edited votes will be discounted. There is no double voting power for this competition.

Please only vote on one board - either EAB or Lemon. You can only vote once, and also it could cause confusion if you post your vote on both boards - it's easy for it to be counted twice by accident.

You can only vote for the 17 games played in the 2012 Super League:

James Pond 2: Codename Robocod
The Chaos Engine
Sensible Golf
Alien Bash 2
Cybernetix
Buggy Boy
Deluxe Galaga
Bubble Bobble
Dyna Blaster
R-Type II
Silk Worm
Stunt Car Racer
Gem'X
Turrican 3
Twintris
Walker
Sensible World of Soccer 96/97

Extras

- Lemon thread


The game with the most points from the voting will be played in the qualifying round from December 2 for two weeks. The second-placed game will be played in the first round proper, and so on.

Anyone is welcome to vote, play and chat at any time. May voting commence...

It has, in my opinion, been the worst year yet for the quality of games played in the Super League so other than the top three I really struggled to find five games to vote for.

1. Deluxe Galaga
2. Gem'X
3. SWOS
4. Silkworm
5. Sensible Golf

There have been a few games I really hated this season and some I really loved. Overall I think it's been a good year with plenty of close battles, and not just for the top spots either.
Here are my votes:


1. Bubble Bobble
2. Dyna Blaster
3. Stunt Car Racer
4. Gem'X
5. Twintris

I think the quality of the games has reflected on the number of people voting this year, seems very low compared to last year.
