OSG World Cup: 2nd Round (Part 1)

Post by Stephen_42 » Wed Aug 03, 2022 8:26 am

Congratulations to all the guitars that made it through the group stage, and commiserations to those who didn't.

We're now into Round 2 of the OSG guitars-under-£500 World Cup! 2nd place is no longer good enough: from here on it's a straight knockout. Guitars are generally considered to be poor at penalty shootouts, so instead I'll cast a deciding vote to settle any draws.

In this half of the draw, we have the winners of groups A, C, E and G up against the runners up from groups B, D, F and H. You have four votes, one for each match, and matches will be separated by dots in the poll. As usual, poll runs for 3 days.

Without further ado, our survivors from the group stage:

No problem! Sorry this one ended up being notably less well organised than March Madness - it ended up being a very busy month or so. Should be more regular from here in!

And I thought the first round had some tough choices… whoever wins this will definitely have had to earn it

Haha I didn’t think I would make it through, especially considering how good the competition was, some tough choices this time as well, although of course I’m going to vote for the other framus,

we’re bringing the World Cup back to Europe! :D

Well I'm actually surprised my Jag bass is holding up so well in the votes against your Framus. That thing is freaking awesome.

Congratulations to Maggieo, Gazer, Mechanical Birds and Pacafeliz! This was one of the closest rounds in any of the tournaments we've done.

Interestingly, 3/4 group stage runners up knocked out group winners here. Will we see similar upsets in the other half of the draw?

Rather selfishly I hope so! Though if I do buck that trend and lose to the winner of group H I won’t be too upset. MayTheFuzzBeWithYou’s jag is super cool.

Didn't Gazer's Framus beat me by 4 votes?

Thank you!

So many gems here… it‘s really getting harder and harder to decide!
When will the next round be on?
