Update: 2nd July Polls are now closed - New Polls will be posted shortly.
Well here we go with this years Episode Cup that you all have been bugging me about ;)
This year, like last year, we have pre-drawn the Cup so that we can run the Episode Cup Bracket and give a prize for the person getting the most predictions correct. Thanks to Matt for all the hard work in running this part for us. For those that missed out filling out their predictions we will be doing a similar one for the Character Cup a little later so stay tuned.
Also a big thanks to Dharmageddon our SpoilerTV Forums Admin for creating the great photos for each Episode and to Lost-Media for some of the images.
Each day for Round 1 we will have 4 match-ups to vote and comment on, with the result from the previous day being shown. Also after the result we will show the % of both the actual poll and the % of predications in the bracket. We will also update the Bracket Table so that you can see your score.
So please vote below and let us know in the comments which episodes you voted for and why and good luck with your brackets.
You can also discuss this here in our Official Episode Cup Discussion Thread.
