I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

When was the last round we DIDN'T have a tiebreaker?

oh, and Oracle.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

I just counted, & 10/23 of the finals rounds have had tiebreakers.  :lol

For future survivors we should find ways to avoid this.

Maybe, dunno, counting votes from previous rounds, even though if we implement the "previous votes will count in a tiebreak" rule, one could be tempted to vote for favorite songs, that won't go away anytime soon, but might accumulate a deficit that would work against the song.

Example, if in the Metallica finals with such a rule I vote at the first round for Master of Puppets, no way my lone vote will eliminate that song.... but it might weight on a future tiebreaker because "Hey, look, these songs got the same numer of votes this round, but someone voted Master for the first 5 rounds of the finals".

So this won't probably work.

In my past survivors I had a rule where if two songs got the same number of votes, I'd disregard my own vote & then (if that didn't break the tie already) I'd change it to one of the songs in the tie.

For some reason I didn't think to do that with this one though... :dunno:

For survivors I ran.... I didn't vote unless there was a tie to break. Doesn't get much easier than that.
