Good. That tacky "holiday resort" shouldn't have gotten past the first round. I've seen it in up close and aside from its height, is hasn't got much going for it.

Not to be satisfied all people, but standardize images should be used. It would be naive to think all people can see the building in person, hence, photo will be used as part of the consideration of the voting. Just my 2 cent. no offence.
I feel the same. I think a lot of voters indeed don't know the buildings well. Seeing Taipei 101 struggle like that from the start underlines my suspicion.

4 years later in the next competition, 1WTC will blow everything out of the water. Becuase it is an ICON and an ICON with significant history behind it

From your previous posts in this thread I get that this is one fat sarcasm of you. And this time I agree. People are crazy about this building. And although its the best from all of the proposals its got, it's not the best in the world in my book, and also, the spire of wtc ruins the design quite badly. I think it shouldn't win with buildings like burj khalifa, india tower, or maybe even shanghai tower (but that last I guess is a matter of taste). And I'm afraid it will win despite that, because its so recognized, and such a big story is associated with it.

I personally would vote for the old wtc over burj, it is my all time the most favorite design, but not for the new wtc it looks way worse in my opinion.

The old WTC was boring, just my personal opinion.

Yes, but where is the second tower on your pic besides vertical stripes makes way better effect on a tower than horizontal.

Let me try again:

Our quarter finalists are going to be revealed soon! My prediction based on current standings:

Burj Khalifa
Willis
Chrysler
Bank of China
2IFC
Petronas Twin
Guangzhou IFC
Empire State


My semi finalists prediction:

Burj Khalifa
Chrysler
Petronas Twin
Empire State


My finalists prediction:

Burj Khalifa
Petronas Twin


and the Supertall World Cup goes to...?

I think Petronas Towers are going to cause an upset to Burj Khalifa in the final match.

Average dominance over opponents after second round for burj is 79%, and for esb 84% so taking that into account esb slightly leads but still its more or less 50-50, and I still think burj will win the tournament.

ESB has been having easier opponents than the Burj, there for it has slightly higher domination %. So i think the chance of winning are pretty even, that is, if Burj makes it pass Chrysler and ESB makes it pass Patronas.
