Midnight Suns: 5
Civ 6: 2

Slipways is eliminated.

Feels like Midnight Suns to me....

Should be fun either way.

Could very well be... let's see.

SECOND ROUND:

Votes needed to win: 7

Midnight Suns: 5
Rimworld: 3
Civ 6: 2
Dorfromantik: 2

This is where I run into issues - if two are tied for last place, do I eliminate both Civ 6 and Dorfromantik?

Yup.

You should go to the number of 2nd place votes for each game - which ever has the most is saved, the other eliminated. If they both have the same number of 2nd place votes, you go to 3rd place votes and so on. If they've got the same number of votes for each category, that's when you'd eliminate them both. Otherwise it's not really ranked choice.

I do all this on a spreadsheet. It makes it a whole lot easier to keep track of!

Thanks Sorbicol! I will need to do this on my next break but should have a winner soon.

If you want me to send you a copy of the spreadsheet I use then PM me and I'll email it to you or something

Fantastic game that I need to get back to as well!

Speaking of vaults and ranks, I will promote everyone either today or tomorrow for Gladius. If you recently finished a legacy game, please also hit me up.

Gladius is great! I will definitely play more in the future. That was a wonderful choice.

Promotions are up for Gladius - please double check!
