The 2011 Spring H2H Brackets are now available at:
I have also uploaded an excel file with the exact seed numbers to my website. Some of you may want to try your hand a making a nice graphical bracket out of it, like some people have done in the past. I would, but have run out of time to work on it. Here's the link: http://www.billtvshow.com/public/psc/2011_h2h_seeding_final.xls
Withdrawals will not be considered at this point unless you find a suitable replacement (similar to lower pscore).
Please PM me with regards to this.
If you are matched up against another user in Round 1 (aka the Play-In Round), be here this Saturday, May 7th after 8am EST to download the source image. You must have your entry done and uploaded by Wednesday, May 11th at 8am EST. No late entries will be inserted into the contests, even in the case of double no shows, no exceptions. Voting will begin at that time (Wed 8am) and last until May 13th at 8am EST, at which point the winners will be revealed. If you win in Round 1, don't forget that Round 2 begins the next day, May 14th.
Also don't forget the entry guidelines: Submitted images must be equal or below 760x760 pixels, under 700Kb in size, and in Jpeg RGB format
If your opponent in round one is a green "Round Bye", then you have received a pass to the 2nd round and do not need to do an entry for Round 1. In your case, be back here on May 14th after 8am to download the 2nd round source.
The H2H follows the same format for each round:
Saturday 8am EST - Source Image Released
Wednesday 8am EST - Entry Deadline, Voting Opens
Friday 8am EST - Voting Closes, Round Winners Revealed
All of the seeding in the tourney was based on Pscore, with added bonuses for past tourney performance. From the field of 163, the play-in round consists of the 70 entrants with the lowest net score, with the top scoring 93 entrants receiving byes to the next round.
Some interesting storylines to note.
>the burning couch has not returned to defend his title this year and vokaris also has not returned, so neither of the finalists from last year are in the field.
>In fact, the only past champion in the field is jasper, who won the 2nd H2H in 2004.
>The field does contain 3 past Reunion winners: Claf, buglover, and anfa.
>The #1 overall seed is deshone, who had both the highest pscore and highest adjusted score after bonuses, due to 2 top 4 finishes in past H2H's.
>Because of the play-in round, this year's field is the largest ever, with 163 entrants.
Any other interesting storylines that you guys see?
Just one last note, have fun everyone. Chop with all your might and talent and keep a keen eye for detail when voting.
