Our last semi-final BattleShips round will determine which couple will battle against Doctor Who for the spot in the championship! Will it be Elena & Damon from Vampire Diaries or Stiles & Derek from Teen Wolf?
What’s going on?
Over the past month and continuing for another two weeks is Hypable’s BattleShips, a tournament where we pit fandom against fandom to see which relationship on television has the most support. It’s all about the chemistry between two characters and the love you have for them, so rally your friends to help support your One True Pairing (OTP)!
We’ve now gathered eight pairs to battle it out onto our final rounds, and they’ve been giving us surprise results! So far the tightest battle we’ve had, believe it or not, has been the latest one with The Vampire Diaries and Castle, constantly flip-flopping until The Vampire Diares was finally announced the winner. We also had a vicious battle between fans of Glee and Once Upon A Time, as well as Avatar and Downton Abbey. In those two it was decided by the voters that Glee and Avatar will also continue to the final rounds. Also in your final rounds are couples from Merlin, Doctor Who and Teen Wolf.
Now it’s time to gather your top four ships for the final rounds, so rally up your friends on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook to make sure that your ship wins. Our quarter-finals proved that all of these fandoms are immensely popular, so which ones will make it through? We have no idea, but we’re excited to see it play out!

What happened with the ‘Merlin’ VS ‘Glee’ poll?
If you were one of the fans who tried to vote after 12 a.m. on the 20th, you’d have noticed that the poll was closed prematurely. It’s been discussed, and unfortunately we are announcing that the poll will not be re-opened. We understand that some of you may be upset, and the author/organizer of BattleShips has written a blog post explaining the situation more in depth here. Please note that the blog post does not reflect on the site as a whole but is a personal reflection directly from the author.
Thanks for being so understanding! And for the rest of BattleShips, may the odds be ever in your favor!
