This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament returns for another smashing year and is geekier and more kick-ass than ever. This bracketed tournament brought out the fans in full force (*wink wink nudge nudge*) and the competition was intense. Yoda came out victorious and, in his own words, “Took care of business, I did.” This left a lot of Darth Vader fans upset so we’re expecting a roaring return to power with the help of his fans.
If you thought the tournament couldn’t get more awesome than it is now, then it’s time for you to take a seat. StarWars.com is officially collaborating with Wikia’s Star Wars Fanpedia for “Predict the Madness”. Fans will be able to submit their own predictive bracket and the ones with the best brackets win fantastic merch! Once the submission period is done, check your bracket over at the Star Wars Fanpedia to see how you’re doing. Deadline for the predictive bracket is on March 17, 9:00 PM PT, so get right on it over here.
Here are even more updates that should get you even more pumped up for the tournament:
- 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
The play-in rounds began last March 11, while the full tournament starts this Monday, March 17. What are you waiting for? Start voting on StarWars.com. May the Force be with you–and your favorite character.
