We are now in the middle of round four. The decks are now fighting for their lives but there is still hope of a voteback if you get eliminated. The voteback happens after this round ends on February 7th, 2016.

What happens now?
Round four will end on Sunday Feb 7 and then we will have the voteback. 36 decks are still alive and three more will return via the voteback.
The preliminary format for the Voteback is that every viewer gets three votes and three decks are brought back into the Gauntlet. A deck that is voted back can be from any round – i.e. even the decks that lost during double elimination can come back after the Voteback.
