Regarding the WoW Tournament of EPICNESS!

Hi, this is Mike Kassep. When someone first mentioned to me the votes were hacked, my first reaction was, I thought it seemed a little funny that there were so many matches won and lost by a half percent! Both my last matches and several others were like that, but I figured, eh… heated battles, good stuff!

But then I heard my votes were the most skewed so I thought, maybe I should check this out! After listening to Deededee’s explanation on his show I was blown away, all the impact it caused for my specific round, Xia getting the by next year, a possible additional week for the match I should have lost. Totally shocked hearing all that.

Anyway…

Deededee mentioned 150 some votes, my guess was I had a total 220+ish. Mine came from friends, family, a wife’s (who’s infinitely more popular than me) friends and family, facebook, co-workers, my mom emailing people, bup bup bup (ha, oh yeah- we have listeners too by the way!). The biggest place my campaigning went on was at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. I’m an MBA student there and I work in different computer labs quite a bit throughout the week. I’d drop votes and have friends make votes all over the place in there. I was able to type the url (www.rivalcastmedia.com/tournaments/wowtournament/2/) faster than you could blink 3 times! Each PC had a different IP address.

The 220+ish votes that I estimated to have came from the “roll up your sleeves”, “get every person you know to vote” and “convince your friends to get freakishly competitive about it” method! (Martin Scorcese says its a directors job to get your audience to be as obsessed with your passion as you are… sorry, that quote seemed relevant).

So, I figured the computer lab votes were considered the “hacked” votes, but Deededee mentioned every other match was skewed by these “hacked” votes also (Mine was just the most extreme case). Now hey… I love all your shows and gave a full bracket vote from my home computer, but when I, or anyone else voted from the lab, we only voted on my match. The instructions were clear… “don’t ask any questions… fine… yes, I host a warcraft podcast… just look for “Mike Kassep (Meeting Stone)” and click Vote. It will spin forever, hit reload and you’ll see that it registered. So if the lab votes were considered the skewed votes, that doesn’t account for the other skewed results that were mentioned throughout the brackets.

So I’m sorry if things got screwed up, or that someone hacked the site, or whatever happened. Though I wanted to clear the air and let everyone know, my stupid big number of votes just came from straight up, hardcore campaigning, friends, family, people I ran into on St. Patty’s! Actually, I blame my co-host Bell, he was more into this tournament than I was when it started, you should have put him in it! (kidding kidding! sorry to drag you in this man!)

So there’s that, hope that piece of the story helps you figure out what went on. Take care everyone and keep the red lights on, Warlords will be here before we know it.
