And then the voting closed, and everything seemed to flip.
We had more than one person note that Hoptimus held the lead up until the final announcement, at which point Dreadnaught was awarded the title. Because this was our first go-around with Bracketeers, we decided to investigate. Here's what they said:
Hi Mike,Anyone that was paying attention can confirm that this is exactly the opposite of what we saw. To everyone watching it looked as if Hoptimus won this thing. On the other hand, we're more than happy to award both beers. So we gathered our crack team of knights and came up with what we think is the ideal solution.
We've taken a look at your bracket:
The final vote counts were:
New Albanian Hoptimus: 104 votes
Three Floyds Dreadnaught: 213 votes
By date, the votes were cast for the Hoptimus as:
April 12, 77 votes
April 13, 9 votes
April 14, 18 votes
By date, the votes were cast for the Dreadnaught as:
April 12, 162 votes
April 13, 39 votes
April 14, 9 votes
April 15, 3 votes
So, insofar as we can tell, there was never any point, past the first few hours of voting, when the Hoptimus should have been coming in first. The main site appears to be correctly reporting votes, but you have been using our embed script, and we are unable to test that on your site.
