April 2017 Judging Applications Finished

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on May 8th, 20176 Comments »

Hello again,

The April 2017 Judging Applications Period is done, and I am pleased to announce that James May and trumaestro have joined the Judging Team! I’m planning on getting them situated with the Regular Batch Sets so we can finish off the rest of 2016.

For anyone who missed this application period, there is another anticipated Judging Application Period in June 2017 so you can apply during that time.

Judging Applications Open until April 30th

Hello again. I wanted to give a reminder that Songs of the Week has been postponed as the focus right now is on Judging Applications. If you haven’t submitted an application yet, there are still two more weeks to do so and you can find more details in the April 2017 Judge Applications thread.

Feel free to also leave some input about the offsets you have been using for specific files in the Offset Discussion Thread. I have compiled my list of the 30 most recently released files and having more data will help us normalize the offsets of these charts and future releases.

If you’re looking for other files to play and provide feedback in the meantime, there are the November/December 2016 Public Sets.

Last but not least, I hope you all have a great Easter!

Three songs again this week – one moderate difficulty, one a bit higher, and one that is extremely easy, for the first time in who knows how long. All three of them are pretty short.

Congratulations go out to klimtkiller for getting their first chart in game; it’s a pretty tricky one at that.

Happy New Year!

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on January 1st, 201712 Comments »

Happy new year to all of you keysmashers. 2016 proved to be a great year for the game on a number of fronts – a huge amount of file judgments completed, a number of great game updates, and of course, we had our 11th Official FFR tournament, which proved to be a more punishing than normal endeavor for most of you. But with that, the 2016 page of FFR’s book has been turned.

To open 2017 for FFR, we’re releasing a song that is familiar to most of you: Our Journey and Epilogue. by aaaa. “But wait, isn’t that in game already?” Yes, bmah graced FFR with his great chart, but it’s for a shorter version. Today, we bring you a chart for the entire composition, in all of its 5:47 glory. The chart should feel somewhat familiar to most players – it’s relatively close in difficulty to the original, but is more technical from start to finish and requires more focus to piece together.

Our Journey and Epilogue.
Musician: aaaa
Step Artist: YoshL
Genre: Game Music
Difficulty: 94
Song Length: 5:47

FFRMas Conclusion

Thank you all for your continued patience on the results and prize distribution of FFRMas prizes! I’ve got everything tabulated out for you guys and it will all be paid out to you tonight.

On day 11 of FFRMas, I announced that there would be a raffle for three chances to win the more elusive Event tokens (FREEDOM DiVE and The Wises Were Wrong).

The winners of that raffle are: MarcusHawkins, MikeShinoda12345, and sickufully. If you have both tokens already, or don’t desire the tokens (i.e. you’re an R^3 player and can’t play The Wisest Were Wrong), feel free to say as such and I’ll give you 25,000 credits instead.

lurker/evil smoke: You did not designate a specific token for your prize on the corresponding FFRMas day, so you can feel free to drop that in here as well.

Again, happy new year, everyone!

With the exception of lurker/evil smoke and their token selections, all prizes for FFRMas have been paid out.

FFRMas 2016: Day 12

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on December 25th, 201611 Comments »

And at last, we have arrived at the final day of our event. I wish that I could announce that I had something special that FFRMas gave to you, but the lack of announcements due to the hectic timing of everything made it a bit tougher to manage. At the end of the day, I still hope that you guys at least had a great time with the releases overall. I feel like the song line-up this year was really good, and it had a lot of differentiation between song style, and stepartists. Difficulty mixing was a little tough to manage due to a lot of the easier stuff being purged from the previous FFR Official Tournament, but we made do to bring you something.

I like to think that it’s always great to save the best for last, and in my opinion, we’ve done just that: the final release for the FFRMas event is none other than the incredible Violet Rose, the sequel song to OSTER Project’s amazing Blue Rose – which has been a fan favorite on FFR for quite some time. This song takes a very rightful position as a sibling: it too runs just shy of the 6-minute mark, carries a very respectable note count at just shy of 4,000, and is somewhat into that For Gurus Only difficulty, sitting in the lower 90s.

When planning this event, this song was immediately placed in the Day 12 slot, because I knew it was worth sharing to everyone on Christmas day. I judged this file in a batch, and -tried- to find things that I didn’t like about it to prevent from giving it a perfect 10, and… I couldn’t do it.

Violet Rose
Musician: OSTER Project
Step Artist: bmah
Genre: Latin Jazz Trio
Difficulty: 91
Length: 5:47

Yesterday, I said that I would reward those who participated in the event, and that I will! For each day you participated, I will add an entry for you to be one of three winners of the more elusive event tokens. The more you participated, the higher your chances are to actually win something! All of you who participated will receive 5,000 credits for every day that you submitted an entry to a spontaneous contest.

I will try to get these credits/prizes paid out as soon as possible, but I’m still gonna be out on travels for the next two days. Be patient, guys! <3

Happy holidays, everyone!
