Final Four of Mix March Madness 2012 Webcomics Tournament–Vote Now!

UPDATE: Round Six has closed…
Vote in the March Madness Finals now!

Round 6! It’s the semifinals and we’re down to the Final Four!

And now it’s beginning to look like an average installment of Game Of Thrones or Strikeforce Morituri, with favorites dropping all over the place. The big games were Order Of The Stick beating xkcd, followed by the huge surprise upset of Gunnerkrigg Court over Questionable Content, which knocked everybody’s Final Four picks out, so nobody wins the $50 gift card from Amazon for picking the Final Four.

We remind you that our four remaining contenders will get at least $25, and whoever make it to the finals will get $50, with the grand prize winner walking away with $100.

Round 6 starts right now, and ends this Wednesday night, April 4, at 11:59 PM, Eastern Daylight Time. We’re down to four contestants, and we get to see who makes it to the big game and who walks away. Go vote!

Round 5… and we’re down to the Elite 8!

Even heavier voting this time around, with the highest contestants getting nearly 12,000 votes. Voting has gotten so passionate that some folks are resorting to YouTube videos to spread the word.

Round 5 starts right now, and ends this Saturday night, March 31, at 11:59 PM, Eastern Daylight Time. We’re down to four contests, and none of them get easier… we hear the howls of agony in the comments threads over who to choose starting already. Go vote!
