This is how the villain world championship continues

We draw randomly from the fixed field of participants 8 groups of 6 villains each off and start on Thursday, May 5th the group stage polls. Then vote! The two villains in a group who receive the most votes within the voting period automatically qualify for the round of 16 and the KO phase, in which he then gives 8 direct duels. The tournament then continues in classic World Cup mode, so the following follows:

  • Quarterfinals (4 duels/surveys)
  • Semifinals (2 duels/surveys)
  • Final (1 duel/poll)

After that, it will be decided which villain can crown himself and call himself the best villain of all time!
