Welcome to the Level of the Year 2019 voteoff!

So, most of you will know how this works, but just in case - and so that specifics are covered - here's a quick rundown.

The 35 nominated levels have been divided into 7 groups of 5 levels, semi-randomly. To be specific, the division was done in such a way that a single author wouldn't have too many levels in a single group.

Each group will be voted on one at a time, with only 2 levels from each group advancing to Phase 2. We try to bring the number down to 2 in 1 single Round. I plan no tiebreakers for this and if we have a minor tie then all tied levels advance. In case of a lot of major ties (4+ levels), I might run a tiebreaker later.

If we then have a bit more than 14 levels in phase 2, these will be split up into 2-3 groups for phase 2. There, I also plan to just let 2-3 of each group survive with no tiebreakers if possible. So that only enough levels for 1 group are left for the final phase 3 and only there I will enforce placements with tiebreakers.

If you want to see the full list of nominated levels in non-randomized order, check the nominations list topic.
If you want to play these levels without having to dig up all the various level packs, check the playing phase topic which has an NXP available for download that contains all the nominated levels.

Please remember that discussing the nominated levels is not allowed in the LOTY2019 topics now that voting has begun. This does not apply to levels that have already been eliminated at the time. Discussing them elsewhere in the site is okay, as long as it's not in the context of LOTY2019.

Cool to see some of my levels in this competition. I didn't expect that when I made my first levels last year. :D

I think you've got the wrong screenshots for "It's the Name of the Fame", "As Far As Peace Can Go" and "Shadows Of Ourselves".

Thanks for pointing out. Seems like only my levels pictures were a bit "shuffled" though. ;P

Fixed the pictures.

Voting is through and over the next week I will start the next phase when it's ready. :)

As we have 21 levels left, I think 3 groups of 7 with aiming for 3 survivors each would be a good next step.
