I view DE 12 as.. a lottery.

It doesn't really matter how many points DE12 is worth if Demi, imbehindyou and ppizzapie get almost all of them right and the ones they miss are one no one else really gets either.
Trust me. It will be a near impossibility to get a perfect.
I'm not saying those three will necessarily get a perfect score. However, if you want to pass them, you need to do better than them. DE12 being difficult doesn't make it any easier to do that. The mistakes those three make will likely be mistakes almost everyone else makes. DE12 being worth a lot of points helps a bit, but not that much since even if you do beat them it won't be by much.
A miracle that you believe in when you know it won't happen......... is hope.

aw, come on, we all know you're just manipulating fantasy rules for your own pleasure.
What the fuck? Do you even know what I'm talking about? Woman, sit the fuck down.

DE 12 isn't worth more or less points. What I meant was it will be very hard to predict correctly, so the top 3 will probably not get close to perfect. That gives others a chance, either through luck or research, to surge ahead. You guys will see what I mean.

I'm sorry, this is probably a stupid question. The championship match is DE 11 right? So what is DE 12?

Hina has yet to lose, so if she loses 1'ce then she Isn't eliminated. Shana has to defeat her 2'ce. So if Shana defeats Hina in DE11, then there will be a rematch in DE12. However, if Hina defeats Shana in DE11, then the Tiara is hers, but there will still be a DE12 for the relegation matches and something else that you will see when it happens.

Im not bracketed even if I got a near perfect , which I wont as its basically an impossibility (or maybe .001%) its still not enough. im just trying to keep myself in the 70's winning is impossible. Unless you all get everything wrong of course and I was to get everything right in 11 and 12 ... (that IS impossible lol)

DE 12 looks like it will have the final 2 rounds of the Relegation matches (14 matches), as well as 6 exhibition matches (although those spots may merely be placeholders). That's not including the potential Shana/Giku rematch.

Actually, since DE 12 technically has more matches, then my formulas will give it more weight. So yes, DE 12 is worth more.

Aren't DE1 to DE10 weighted equally despite some of the rounds having slightly fewer matches?
