Time Warner Cable is now in EA's position, with the company winning out the race bracket with 51.2% versus EA's 48.8%. The Consumerist explains: "Despite its cock-up of the Battlefield 4 and Titanfall releases, EA just didn't have the all-out support that it had received in the previous two tournaments. And while Time Warner Cable has always merited a spot in the WCIA brackets, the company's pending merger with former WCIA champ Comcast undoubtedly played into readers' voting decisions."

 

The Consumerist continues: "Judging by the absolute crushing that Comcast brought down on Yahoo in its first round match, there is a lot of hatred out there for the nation's largest cable/Internet provider, and today's TWC result confirms that voters are more than happy to spread that hate around."
