7th Official Tournament – ROUND ONE!!
.. .. ..and so it begins.
710 players have marched up to the virtual felt to partake in this years Official Tournament.
Only 6 will walk away as champions. Who will it be this year?
To start things off I would like to let everyone know that they can get to the Official Tournament Dashboard by clicking on that link or the giant image at the top of this post. There you can see what division you are in, as well as a variety of stats.
You will have one week to play your round song as many times as you would like using any of the engines available on the site. Your best score is automatically grabbed and placed into the dashboard, so no need to submit screenshots or anything of the like. You can view your own (and your opponents) score by hovering your mouse over their score. This will be displayed in the form of x-x-x-x (goods-averages-misses-boos), so you can see just how accurate the other players in any division are during the round.
Division 1: Lunar Landing
So our beginner division starts off this tournament with a quaint little Techno pop song charted by veteran simfiler bmah. Nothing too dangerous here, perhaps the mini jacks might slip some players up? Be prepared for an easy to listen to, fun file.
Division 2: Death March
The second division is introduced to Death March, composed by FFR user MBurns of his band Red Blank. An eerie little piano solo that is littered with suspense, 24ths and some well placed jumps to accentuate the sounds that you are tapping to. Hopefully our D2 players found it as fun to play as I did.
Division 3: Infinity
Continuing with the 24th note fun is Elite Ninja and Infinity. An uplifiting and bright Techno swing song from ParagonX9 that will test a lot of our low-mid D3 players with quick jump sections and a lot of fun-flowing 24th streams. Short, sweet and much like D2, very purple.
Division 4: Addict (Dr. Ozi Monsta r3mix)
Always an exciting division to watch, our Expert players will be playing Addict Remix, steps courtesy of who_cares973. Similar to last year’s Fall Silently, D4’s first round is yet another dubstep song, filled with 12th streams and gallops characteristic of many songs from this genre. Aside from that, players will be smashing their way through 32nd bursts and tricky polyrhythms. A chart this tough is almost sure to prevent a AAAfest all over the D4 leaderboard, although we’ve seen more shocking things in the past…
Division 5: EuroMorroc (Clean Edit)
Some of you might feel nostalgic if you can recognize the D5 Round 1 song, which used to be playable in FFR R2. Our Master division is given EuroMorroc (Clean Edit) for their first file, stepped by DossarLX ODI. A rather short file for the Expert level only barely passing the 1k note barrier, it still packs quite a punch. The chart is filled with dense 180bpm broken jumpstream clusters before breaking out into the final 300 notes of continuous jumpstream. FFR’s D5 Masters will need to show some serious consistency in order to score well in this first round.
Division 6: Spoils
Finally, we reach our Guru division. Receiving what is arguably the most technically difficult first round file in any FFR Official Tournament, our D6 players will be playing Spoils. Adding another Protest the Hero song to his FFR chart repertoire, dore managed to sprinkle a bit of everything into this almost 4 minute long file. Players will need to conquer chaotic jumpstream breaks, quick 24th jumpjacks, and nerve-wracking one handed trills if they wish to survive this opener.
Please discuss the tournament songs for this round here.
That is all for this round, be on the look-out for updates to the Official Thread’s OP, and get to smashing those arrows!!
