The Lux Familiar Cup 2015

The “Baguette Dilemma” Round: RESULTS

After three weeks of voting, an astonishing 1,400 people voted (well, 1,400 different IP addresses), generating an even more astonishing 199,796 match-ups. This meant that every song appeared in something like 2,000 contests, so there’s a decent chance that every song met every other song at least once. Amazing.

The average voter (or IP address) generated 140 contests. However, the median was more like 40, as a handful of people voted a ridiculous number of times. In the end, it doesn’t look like their superhuman efforts made a significant difference. 48 people voted just once.

Make of this what you will.
