Hypable’s BattleShips: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ knockout round

Hypable’s second annual shipping tournament, BattleShips, begins with a knockout round to see which couple has enough of a fan following to kick Stefan & Elena out of their spot for The Vampire Diaries nomination!

Earlier this week we announced BattleShips 2.0, a fandom shipping tournament that will pit couple against couple from some of the biggest shows on Hypable to see which ship has the biggest voice. We’ve pre-selected the couples and the shows and put all the runners-up from last year up against each other, but now it’s your turn to try and vote them out!

Your goal in this round is to vote for the ship you think should represent The Vampire Diaries as BattleShips continues onto the show VS show stage. We’ve pre-selected Stefan and Elena since they were runner-ups in last year’s nomination for the show, but if enough fans vote for a different couple they might get knocked out of the competition!

You’ll have 24 hours to vote Stefan/Elena out of BattleShips and replace them with a ship of your choice or vote for them to stay! But here’s the catch: Stefan/Elena will have an additional 200 votes added onto their numbers when the polls are over, to make knocking them out of their spots that much harder. After all, they were the runner ups last year and it’s going to take some serious fan power to kick them out!

And don’t forget: Stefan/Elena will get 200 additional votes when the poll ends.
