    It’s almost time to THROW DOWN. The Civilization VI Leader Royale kicks off May 20 on Twitter and Civ fans have a front-row seat. No tourists, no tanks, just your favorite Civ leaders facing off in a history-making tournament. Only one can come out on top.

    Here’s how it works: We’ve recruited 32 of your favorite Civ VI leaders and set them up in a 4-round bracket. Each week, you’ll get a chance to vote for your favorite leader on Twitter. By the end, there can only be one still standing. The winner will take over our Twitter channel for a full month.

    Bracket (Updated for Finals)

    Well... this is interesting. Not only the tournament, but the winning leader "taking over" their Twitter for a month. Makes me lean towards VI not being quite dead yet.

    So, are the rounds simultaneous, as in all of the winners of the groups will be decided in Week 1, the Quarter Finals in Week 2 and so forth so it will.all.be done in 4 weeks, or one completion at a time so it will last 16 weeks?

    Let's hope the post updates here. I'm banned from Twitter. Literally, got doing nothing. I registered, forgot about it, tried logging in a long while later, only to find my account had been suspended for "suspicious activity". They want my mobile number to unlock it. Fat chance.

    I... completely did not expect this to be an official event, but I like it! I will definitely be filling out my own bracket ala March Madness, so don't let me down, twitterers!
    If only we could vote with hours played as a given leader... :p

    It's interesting that they are groups of leaders. None of them consist all of leaders that I like, so I don't really feel loyalty to any one grouping.

    I love how every Leader in the brackets is looking directly at us menacingly. It's like they're saying, "You'd better vote for me, punk." :lol:

    I did notice they're only using pre-industrial leaders. Maybe that's saying something.

    If I am understanding this correctly (and I do not mean this in any derogatory sense); this is just a popularity contest, correct? There are no criteria for determining a winner other than who gets the most likes/tweets/posts/votes?

    Four rounds (Groups, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, Finals), one week per round, four weeks total.
    I wasn't planning on it, but I can update the OP each week.
    That's the way I read, "vote for your favorite leader."

    Groups 4 and 7 look like the groups of death. Only Jadwiga is a weak link among the 8 of them...

    Me too. And with the various weapons that they are holding menacingly, I'm inclined to vote for them. :p

    Let me see if I can predict right the result of a popularity contest :

    group 1 : gilgabro
    group 2 : Genghis
    group 3 : humm trricky let's say frederick but gorgo has an edge
    group 4 : Monty or Hammu ...say Monty
    group 5 : Hojo
    group 6 : Eleanor
    group 7 : Kupe
    group 8 : Peter

    Then that gives quarter
    gilgabro vs genghis => gilgabro
    frederik vs monty => monty
    Hojo vs elanor = > Hojo
    Kupe vs peter => kupe

    Semis
    gilgaboro vs monty => gilgabro
    Hojo vs kupe => kupe

    final kupe vs gilgabro => dunno...both seem to be quite popular , so I'll stick with the bro who had quite the fans helped by his abs :)

    ok what's yours ?

    We have an excellent lineup of charismatic leaders here, ladies and germs, but only one can win the right to spam the Civ Twitter with memes for an entire month.
    Here are my predictions, presented without justification because I can.

    Admittedly, as a student of Latin and a classical nerd, I am biased in favor of Trajan, but Gilgabro's charisma is indomitable.

    Alexander could win too.

    Absolutely not. No, no, no, no, no no no no no. No. I hate his stupid face so much. Never in the history of Civ, and possibly never in the history of video games, has a character so perfectly embodied Backpfeifengesicht.
