Star Wars Worlds Cup 2018
Welcome to the Star Wars Worlds Cup 2018
The world has been brought together by the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Star Wars fandom seems to be in fractured disarray. Home One Radio has, hopefully, come up with a way to capture the spirit and togetherness of the World Cup with the rabid fandom of Star Wars. We unveil, the Star Wars Worlds Cup 2018! Taking 32 planets from the canon Star Wars Universe, we seeded the planets by legacy, time on screen in movies and TV, and overall coolness to pit them against one another in a World Cup-style tournament. Below you can see the seeding as well as the final groups they landed in:
As you can see, some of these matches will be fascinating!
So, starting Monday, June 25th with the release of episode #79, we will be bringing you new games every day through July 14th, the day before the end of the real World Cup. You can vote on each matchup and the winner is determined by percentage of votes. If the voting is within +/-5% of each other, it is declared a draw and each planet receives 1 point. 3 points for a win and no points for a loss. The top two planets from each group move on to the knockout stages and then each match is single elimination, with no draws and only wins or losses.
Share it with friends on Twitter and Facebook and vote in our polls each day in either of those locations. Thanks for playing and the sole remaining winner will be crowned the 2018 Star Wars Worlds Cup champion and receive the coveted Worlds Champion Cup!
