For the past couple of weeks, you’ve been busy deciding which couples from which shows you’d like to see compete in our shipping tournament, BattleShips. Now that each couple has been selected for their fandoms, it’s time for them to face the music and battle the other fandoms to see which couple has the biggest voice!

This year’s theme was runners-up, but we gave you all a chance to oust the runners-up from last year with your personal favorite ship. Six out of the 16 couples have been replaced by ships that have proven themselves to have a huge community behind them, but the question is: Which ship will last until the end?

Will an underdog couple beat the odds and come out on top, or will the well-known couple be crowned as Hypable’s Ship of the Year? You get the say!

Each VS round will last 48 hours. This will give your fandom plenty of time to find out about the battle and help you in your quest to beat out the other ship!

However, if you or your fandom decide to find out ways to cheat, scam or con your way to the next round, we will crown the other ship winner of the round. We have our eyes on all the social networks and we’ll be able to figure out if your fandom is cheating, so don’t ruin it for everyone!

Sudden Death
We know that sometimes a race can get pretty close, so that’s why we’ve created the Sudden Death round. If a round between ships ends with a margin of 150 votes or less then the next day there will be a Sudden Death round.

Sudden Death rounds will last six hours, and the poll will start with a clean slate. Whichever fandom manages to get the most votes in six hours will be the winner and move on to the next round.
