We're back, baby! It's time for evaluating the predictions again.
I am not disappointed, not disappointed at all. 2 people got both the number 1 and 2 correct, though both of them misjudged how strong NewDawn would be.
I had to disqualify a number of participants for putting in their votes after ticks had already started. Sorry guys, you were struck down by a rule I did not inform you existed. Sucks for you. For those keeping track, ticks started on October 15, which means everyone who posted after me was too late.
Imperia featured on stunningly few prediction lists, 4 in total. Interestingly, 3 of those 4 correctly predicted they would end number 2.
NewDawn, Ascendancy and Apprime made up the vast majority of votes. No one who scored points put a different alliance than those 3 and the aforementioned Imperia.
4 people scored 0 points, a slight increase from last round's 3. I am still a humourless and emotionless counting machine.
The "Unknown" vote is a new occurence in these lists, encountered 5 times in 3 predictions, not counting those who only (attempted to) predict a winner.

Benneh's vote was ambiguous, so I used the interpretation that gave him the fewest points (Asc, ND, App instead of App, ND, Asc).
Honourable mention to Crantor, whose prediction was so accurate that I will post it verbatim:

And, adding all the scores of the last 3 rounds together, we get the following top 6:
Hunterr is still hanging on in there, despite having made only a single prediction. Colt's consistently decent-or-better voting puts him ahead of the pack.
See you again next round. No tags in the Christmas round, so I'll skip that one.
