Rules
1. All ties, with the exception of the final match, will be decided by way of coinflip. I will attempt to have a moderator or admin perform the coinflip to avoid any funny business.
2. If a 10 vote lead is established, the Mercy Rule goes into effect, and the losing design has an hour to make substantial progress or the match is ended. In the Round of 32, the Mercy Rule may be invoked after a 7 vote lead is established.
3. All matches are to last 24 hours unless the Mercy Rule is in effect.
4. This tournament is for the TK Community ONLY. Refrain from advertising the tournament on other forums or any other platform. Manipulation of the vote may result in temporary or permanent suspension of voting regarding the match in question.
5. Rules are subject to change if found to be unreasonable. However, this is unlikely to occur.

Format
1.Single elimination from the round of 32, double elimination from the round of 16. Double elimination would look something like this.
2. Team Totals shall be allocated as followed: After tweaking my formual for the Era Standings, here is where we are. So I did 10 points for a finish in the Top 16, 20 for the Top 12, 30 for the Top 8, 40 for the Top 4, 50 for Third Place, 60 for making the finals, and 100 for winning it all.

New Designs
1. Always Godzilla
2. Godzilla The Ride
3. Hana Barbara Godzilla

That made it a perfect bracket of 32. But we have two weeks, so we can still adjust this if you would like. Let me know in the comments.

Seeding
Spoiler:
I decided to tweak the seeding slighly from last year. First, I moved Godzilla 2004 from the 22nd seed to the second seed. I then swapped KiryuGoji and MireGoji to avoid rematches from last year. However, the Shin v Kiryugoji match last year was quite tight, so, if you would like me to change it back, let me know in the comments. I was also uncomfortable with leaving Ultima that low, but am unsure as to where to put him. The seeding is as follows:

1.Godzilla 1954
2. Godzilla 1989
3. Godzilla 2019 - 2021
4. Godzilla 1995
5. Godzilla 2001
6. Godzilla 20002-2003
7. Godzilla 1964(A)
8. Godzilla 1999-2000
9. Shin
10. Godzilla 1973-1975
11. Godzilla 1984
12. Godzilla 1968
13. Godzilla 1962
14. Godzilla 1991
15. Godzilla 1994
16. Godzilla 2014
17. Godzilla 1965
18. Godzilla 1964(B)
19. Godzilla 2004
20. Godzilla 1992
21. Godzilla 1993
22. Godzilla 1955
23. Godzilla Ultima
24. Godzilla 1967
25. Godzilla Earth
26. Always Godzilla
27. Godzilla The Ride
28. Hana Barbara Godzilla

You're probably going to be out of compliance with the new signature rules, but glad to see them used!

I’ll probably make more signatures that make it easier to comply.

I tend to agree with this statement, though I tend to lean Heisei.

Sig is now up! Apologies for the crappy-looking pics but kinda has to be that way for already-stated reasons.

I’ll be pissed if that happens. Seeing as though we have a lot of Bracket ‘21 vets here, we’ll be a bit jaded towards ol’ Shodai.

Fools!

Blasphemers!

The true SUPERIOR Godzilla design is in MY signature. OBVIOUSLY it was left out due to the SUPERIORITY of the design from other, lesser, Godzilla designs. SURELY if he was in the bracket his mere presence would have caused a landslide victory in his favor. THUS I, SpaceG92 have taken it upon MYSELF to represent our true Godzilla overlord.

Meme post aside we need someone else to win. Shodai has had it good for too long.

Chances are that the people who voted for Shodai last year are gonna vote for him again this year, as this is all about personal preference, and if they seriously voted for Shodai, then they are a lost cause unlikely to be swayed by any other design. This isn't sportsball. Shodai's not gonna die from a heart attack in a parking lot while in midst of a confrontation with a trio of German nihilists with a failed music career.

It never did blow out the competition last year, though. It squeaked through every match.

Personally, the only reason I held out for Shodai is because there were no other good options left.
