The 2007 Elite Summer Contest was known as New Blood Rising. 2007 differed from the previous four Elite Summer Contests in that:

  • Contestants were not ranked by seeds.
  • Four Divisions gave the new generation a great opportunity to make the field.
  • Randomly-placed matchups disallowed vote rallying.

The Contest kicked off on Friday, June 1st of 2007. To vote, Eliters sent the name of their daily choice to Ngamer over AOL Instant Messenger at ImNgamer, or mailed their choice to ngamer AT gmail DOT com. To be eligible to vote, one of four conditions had to be met:

Those not sure of their eligibility contacted Ngamer about their official status.
