May I ask, what kept e.g. the Shard from being in the list but allowed e.g. the Costanera Center, which I think is due to be completed later?

This competition is a joke. Pearl River Tower is losing to Al Hamra...

agreed al hamra should have completed with princess tower (though al hamra would still win) at least they would be the same height

It's losing because more people like it, am I right ? I thought this is an idea of "competition"

the american towers kinda have a better chance though, because there are far more aemerican than chinnese voters for example

Well it is a competition that shows the favorite supertall of our community. If there are more americans, there is nothing unfair since they we still part of the community

Fortunately it's not true that american supertalls have great advantage - for example Bank of America Plaza lost with Shun Hing Square and Wells Fargo Plaza is losing to Intl. Commerce Center

If Jinmao wins first round, it will most probably face Bank of China tower, and then even if Jinmao still wins it will face ICC.

for the last 4 i hope for: Burj Khalifa, SWFC, Petronas, Nanjing Greenland

but realistical i think instead of Nanjing the ESB will make it (obviously), instead of SWFC the Chrysler Building (there i still have hope though), Petronas might have a hard time, but not a bad chance, and Burj Khalifa will come there easily

This wonderful game reminds me the challenge draw that takes place in www.atptennis.com where competitors (worldwide users) predict the draw by picking on their favorite players to win matches at every stage up to the final on any of the tennis master 1000 tournaments of the atp world tour. Im participating there too, and now, im pleased to participate here!!! Congratulations for one of the best iniciatives i`ve ever seen in SSC !

GO Burj Khalifa, Empire State, Chrysler, SWFC, you are among my favorites to win !
