The SPL Season 4 Spring Gauntlet Bracket Challenge currently has eleven participants from /r/Smite signed up, but it would be awesome if we had even more people who were interested in playing. The Bracket Challenge is free, you don't have to sign-up anywhere, and the picks are visible to everyone who wishes to look at them.
Winners will be based on the total number of points of the correct picks. The top three contestants with the most overall points will receive the following rewards:
1st: 3500 gems
2nd: 2500 gems
3rd: 1500 gems (or Ultimate God Pack, your choice).
If someone manages to get every single pick right, they will instead get 8000 gems.
If multiple people tie, the places will be filled from top to bottom and everyone that ties gets the rewards (If five people tie for first they all receive the first place prize, but none are awarded for second and third, etc.) The spirit of this encourages actual competition and not collusion. Let's keep it fun.
Winners will need to send me their in-game names, but you do not need to do so until the Gauntlet has been completed. For console players, we can either figure out a solution, or you can receive a gift card for the amount.
You pick the overall set winner, overall set score (2-1, 2-0 in favor of your winner, etc), team to score first blood in the first two games, team to kill gold fury first in the first two games of the set, and team to kill fire giant first in the first two games of the set. There is no game three prediction to make it easier on me, sorry everyone.
The first set awards 1 points per correct pick, the second set awards 2 points per correct pick, and so on.

Vote will close at 12:00 GMT on Friday, April 7.
We've had a few organizational changes occur. The EU CC team known as Carbon 6 was dropped by the org, and are now listed by their old name of Optimus Gang. The NA CC team SPL Gatekeepers was picked up by Oxygen Supremacy. The NA SPL team In Memory of Gabe was picked up by Carbon 6. The sheet already reflects this information.
If you have already submitted your picks, feel free to validate the sheet to make sure I got it in right.
Send me your picks for the Spring Gaunlet via message of via email to WinkePinkleSmite@gmail.com. Line breaks to make it easier to read are appreciated! An example of an easy to read format is:
Sanguine Esports vs. Optimus Gang: Sanguine Esports
Set 1 Score: 2-0
Set 1 Game 1 First Blood: Sanguine Esports
Set 1 Game 1 First Gold Fury: Optimus Gang
Set 1 Game 1 First Fire Giant: Sanguine Esports
Set 1 Game 2 First Blood: Optimus Gang

The formatting might change for a future Bracket Challenge (like Spring Masters LAN), but I wanted to keep it easy on me for now.
