Songs of the Week (January 29, 2015)

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on January 29th, 201512 Comments »

Greetings keyboard cowboys. Another shorter songs week, with all three files once again clocking in at under two minutes in length.

(Xiz is temporarily away on :ver important: business matters, so the SotW video will be uploaded tomorrow)

The thread for this week’s songs can be found here.

DARK KNIGHT
Musician: taqumi
Step Artist: hi19hi19
Song Genre: Rock
Difficulty: 64
Song Length: 1:49

Firstaidvision
Musician: Pygmy Guru
Step Artist: DossarLX ODI
Song Genre: Misc
Difficulty: 87
Song Length: 1:22

My Suit & Tie Life (D.licious Live Edit)
Musician: D.VELOPED
Step Artist: Xiz
Song Genre: Hip Hop
Difficulty: 39
Song Length: 1:39

Tier Points

New list is done! Exactly 200 songs from difficulties 50 to 99 appear on this list, with a total of 1500 points up for grabs. We also have some pretty sleek badges ready for you guys for gaining entry to each new tier level. The tier levels are as follows:

Tier 6: 1450 points
Tier 5: 1250 points
Tier 4: 1000 points
Tier 3: 750 points
Tier 2: 500 points
Tier 1: 200 points
Tier 0: Earn your first tier point!

Tier badges can be found where your profile badges are located.

Huge thanks to Silvuh for the fantastic badges, Velocity and Zageron for sifting through and creating a ton of code to make this fully functional, and PrawnSkunk for helping with the implementation of a dynamic AAA tier bonus that adjusts the AAA requirements automatically as new songs are added. The first bonus point is awarded at 50% of total songs (including tokens) in FFR AAA’d, with another point awarded for every additional percentage gained. 51% of AAAs will award a player with 2 points, all the way up to 50 points for 99% of songs AAA’d.

As a general divisional rule of thumb (meaning there are indeed exceptions), having 4 points on any one song places you at least as D3. Having at least 5 points on anything, minimum D4. 6 points, D5. 7 points, approaching D6 or low D6. 8 points, mid D6. 9 points, approaching D7 or low D7. 10 points, mid D7. 11 points, high D7. And 12+ points on either of the 14 point songs, wtf-tier (which at the moment is solely held by none other than you know who). Happy tier hunting!

Annual Forum Awards

Deadline’s coming up in just a few short days. If you plan on submitting votes for the 2014 Annual Forum Awards or TWG Awards, get them in while you still can! Votes will be accepted up to 11:59 PM server time on February 1st.

Also fully expecting feminist backlashes in the comment section for the salutation.

Hi Everyone! It’s time for your weekly what’s happenin’ post.

500 Internal Server Error

I know a lot of you have been noticing that FFR has been having a 500 internal server error fairly frequently starting late night into the morning. I want to assure you guys that it is being worked on. I’ve spoken with Synthlight and he said that he will have it resolved in the next few days. I know it stinks to deal with and I apologize for the inconvenience, but hang in there and rest assured that it is being worked on.

A few more stats for you from the AAAdvent event:

Over the course of 12 days we gave out 4,916,000 Credits to 149 different participants, 85 of which submitted all 12 days! There were 1449 submissions to the event, 30 of them getting a token unlock response over the course of the event!

I also want to take the time to give a huge thank you to everyone that made this event possible. The difficulty consultants stepped up to help me last minute on a lot of these files that went out. Xiz also worked on the fly to get those awesome videos you guys saw each day of the event. arcnmx for putting up the videos and helping out with the token for a. Dossar helped with file sync and fixes on the fly as well. bmah took the time out to step some actual Christmassy sounding stuff to top off the event. Then the events team, they really worked their butts off for this. All the thanks go to them for coming up with the AAAdvent event and putting together all those scriptures you got daily. Foxfire and Rushy did a huge bulk of the updating as PMs came in; I can’t imagine how it would’ve been otherwise. I also have to give a big thanks to Halogen who took a lot of time out to help me as well when I needed it, even though he stepped down from doing events and game management. It was really a huge collaborative effort and it went super well. I hope everyone enjoyed the event.

What’s Happenin’

Going to start off with a reminder that right now there is a credit multiplier earning you 2x the credits when playing. This will be on until New Years, so make sure to take advantage of it.
