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
- 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 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.
