Why is tempted the summoner with only 10 upvotes in the finalists?

Because upvotes are not the only thing that matters to get to finals. You can read it in the first post of the submission topic ... or here:

How do we determine the qualifying finalists? First, we'll pull up-vote data from each submission using the formula detailed below:

( ab ) / ( c ) = x

Where, a = The total number of submissions on the same page as the submission. b = The total number of up-votes that the submission received. c = The total number of up-votes on the same page as the submission. x = The submission's final score.

The formula basically measures which cards stood out the most, with the necessary assumption that each page is about equal in overall submission quality. It will be the entries that receive the highest final scores that move on to the Final Phase.

The formula I think needs a little tweaking no? If your submission unluckily happens to be on a same page of a very popular submission, value of C goes all the way up and x will go down drastically. Value of a doesn't really matter unless you're on the last page, which makes it even worse because value of ab will drop then. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Feel free to suggest a better way, but this is the best way of evaluating submissions within this forum's capabiliies, we have tried a couple different ways and this one seems to be the best. Albeit yes, it is not 100% fair in every single situation, but it is in most, which couldnt be said about the other approaches.

Why would I give you the answer... for free? Here's a hint - submissions on the first few pages and on the top of every page usually get the most views - so come out with a formula to cut down the skewness. Score value for each submission should be majorly composed of the total upvotes submitted by the community and not forcibly multiplied or divided by a nonsensical large value unless there is an inherent biasness apparent in the forum viewing system itself. I practically gave you the answer.

I don't see how this card is not broken with this combo
