This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament 2014 Underway
Last year, Star Wars fans decided the most popular character in the franchise through a bracketed voting showdown, and this year the opportunity to get your favorite character recognized has returned via This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament 2014. The event is already underway and features several special modifications, including:
- Real-time voting results
- New divisions: Rebels, Jedi, Scoundrels, Republic, Empire & Separatists, Sith, Bounty Hunters, and Underworld
- “Attack of the Play-Ins” round, allowing four wild cards to enter the main tournament
- Social sharing functionality
Additionally, StarWars.com has teamed up with Wikia’s Star Wars Fanpedia in order to “Predict the Madness,” where fans will be able to submit their predictions for the bracket and how they imagine the results will turn out. These brackets will live at http://on.wikia.com/u0ex0. Once the submission period is locked (Deadline is Monday, March 17, 9:00 am PT) and voting begins on StarWars.com, fans can return to their brackets on Star Wars Fanpedia to track their progress. At the end of the tournament, users with the best bracket have the opportunity to win a range of Star Wars prizes.
Play-in round begins 3/11. Full tournament begins 3/17
