Knockout Challenge - Season 23 First Round

 
  • Knockout Challenge - Season 23 First Round

    Welcome to the First Round of this season's Knockout Challenge. I will be kicker for these matches.

    There were 33 eligible players this season (sorry ClaraWP, you joined just after the cut-off time), so the most recent new member and the persoon lowest on the member list on the first day of the season will compete in the first round. The winner will join the other 31 members in the second round.

    The full rules for the Knockout Challenge can be seen here.

    The draw for this round is...IanDrexP v DrawFirstBlood

    (draw done by running the names through here 5 times.)The round starts now, and must be completed by 23.59 BST (UTC / GMT +1) on Tuesday 24 April.

    Good luck to both players.

    At some point before the finish time the kicker for this match (me) will look at both players profiles and check how many of the last 10 different artists he can kick for. The player with the highest number of kicks loses and is eliminated from the competition. The one with least kicks is the winner and progresses into the second round.

    (There is only one match in this round in order to have a multiple of 2 for the next round.)

    If both players get the same number of kicks, a tie-break takes place. The kicker looks at the listener count for all the artists he was unable to kick for and the person who listened to the artist with the highest number of listeners is the winner.

    A look at some of last seasons matches should give you an idea of how it works.

    I'm fine either way as long as it won't be as nerve-wrecking as last season's battle against Alainn :P

  • Your musical compatibility with temujin1234 is VERY LOW

    Except he has every well known band I listen to/want to listen to. Finding tiebreakers when he's kicker is so hard.
