The Marble League Showdown 2019 is the secondary competition to the 2019 MarbleLympics and the first ever MarbleLympics Showdown. There will be 4 events.

Teams

In the 2019 MarbleLympics Showdown 12 teams competed, including the 8 MarbleLympics teams who failed to qualify for MarbleLympics 2019, the top 2 Hubelino teams of the 2018 Hubelino Tournament and 2 fan-made teams.

Fan Team Contest

The Fan Team Contest, introduced in 2019, allowed fans to submit a team for election to compete in the MarbleLympics Showdown. There were a lot of different rules for the submission

Phases

  • Submission phase from 26 February - 5 March
  • Promotion phase from 6 March - 10 March
  • Voting round 1 from 11 March - 15 March
  • Voting round 2 from 18 March - 22 March

Voting System[1]

  • Voting Round 1 gave each voter the ability to choose up to 5 teams out of the 21 submitted teams to give a vote to. Then the net result was taken. In the end 8 teams advanced.
  • Voting Round 2 used the "single transferable vote" system. Each voter would rank the 8 fan-made teams based on preference. The team with the least raw first-position votes had its votes transferred to whichever team the voter had ranked second. This went on for each round until only two teams remained.

Trivia

  • The MarbleLympics Showdown saw the Minty Maniacs return to a ML-related competition after previously withdrawing from participation in MarbleLympics 2019 Qualifiers. They will be the first team to come out of "retirement".
  • It is currently unknown what will happen to the four teams that do not place in the top eight and qualify for the ML2020 Qualifiers. This will be determined prior to the release of MS2019.
