I originally decided not to post the elimination guidelines (at least foremost) in order to avoid encouraging someone from being overly concerned with the numbers or trying to sway a vote or whatnot (also why the results are only available after it's expired). But, since you asked...Elimination criteria for the first round:
- At least 13% of the vote is needed for choices to normally be eliminated (percentages are rounded up if necessary).
- If a third episode doesn't reach 13%, only two will be eliminated.
- If more than three episodes reach 13%, all above 13% will be eliminated.
- If somehow no choice reaches 13%, the top two with the most votes will be eliminated.
- If somehow only one choice reaches 13%, the next choice with the highest vote will also be eliminated (if there's a tie, one will be selected randomly from the ones that have tied)
To answer your specific questions:The 3 cases with the most amount of votes are eliminated?
- Usually it will be the three most, but not always (see above). Ultimately, the first round will see some pretty lopsided contests as there are some cases that are going to be eliminated early by large margins no matter the situation.With the caveat that the case needs at least 10% of the vote?
- 13%, but percentages are rounded up.I'm a little confused on why 4 cases were eliminated in pool 6
- Each of them had more than 13%. Usually, we'll end up with two to three eliminated, but occasionally we will go over. I actually didn't expect to ever have more than three go over 13% (which is one reason I didn't mention it in the blurbs--well, that and not wanting people to be overly concerned with the numbers and instead stay focused on the cases), personally, as a lot has to go right (or wrong, depending on your perspective!) for the numbers to line up that way. The basic reasoning here being that, if a case this early on receives that many votes, it's highly, highly unlikely to survive the next round regardless, so it may as well be cleared out now.
