FFR Official Tournament – Round 3!!
2 weeks down, 5 or less weeks remaining for the 313 of you that are left, and man what a journey so far. We’ve seen D4 and D6 just decimate their charts and a very harsh cut-off for D5 leaving a lot of hot contenders only a whisker below the elimination line. Unfortunate news for the players that are still in for a chance is that I have got quite the spanner to throw in the works for every division this round. A bit of a jump in difficulty for most divisions, keep in mind that every division will be cut to 32 or less this week, so with this short and sweet intro, let’s see the charts!! (Apologies for D1-4s write-up, OWA was only available for a few minutes tonight and supplied us with the D5/6 low-down)
Division 1: Firebird
Our D1 players might be in for a bit of a shock when they meet with the rolls and jacks that are coming their way with this high-energy chiptune track. Not a lot else to say aside from hang on and feel the burn of the Silvuh-delivered difficulty jump, we’re cutting the field in half so get to mashing those keys and good luck.
Division 2: Calling Mars
Following up with another frequent step artist of this official tournament is DarkZtar and his jumpstream-y addition to round 2. This is a rather mellow track from Kyrn, with it’s short fast bursts of jumpstream + some really eye-catching 32nds in the mix, this will definitely have our D2 players on edge to try and catch themselves a Top 32 spot for Round 4.
Division 3: Baby Still Too Fat
MarioNintendo makes his mark on division 3 this week with a very fun sounding New Wave track. I for one am not looking forward to this as it plays on my biggest weakness *cough*jumpstream*cough*… However, I know a lot of you in this division will be eager to sink your teeth into this chart as it is our divisions first long song. Not much to say aside from a tricky ending and a nasty little surprise wall near the intro.
Division 4: The Replicator
Jacks, 24th jumpstream. If you aren’t a fan of either of these two things, you might want to look away when you load up The Replicator. A very fun chip/swing song with a few troublesome spots to snag our remaining D4 players. I can’t imagine seeing another AAA-fest this week, but those crazy D4 cats might surprise us yet. Great chart Carlos ;D
Division 5: Press Start
I won’t lie, I was damn impressed with how well our D5 players handled last round’s file. With almost half of you advancing to round 3 while snagging a AAA on A FLOWER GARDEN, and the rest with under 3g, you guys have definitely proven what FFR’s soon-to-be gurus are capable of. Unfortunately, YOSHl put on his steel-toed boots this round to have yet another go at your nether regions. Press Start by Acid Paradox is a fun 8-bit song filled with tons of samples alluding to the first Super Mario Bros game. This chart’s full of slow but constant jumpstreaming, with some jumpjacks scattered here and there. Although…hmm, how do I put this in a way other than ‘watch out for the troll walls’? Just be on guard whenever that pesky plumber decides to snag a mushroom or slide down a flagpole. Trust me when I say some of you might hate Mario by the end of this round. Or YOSHl. Or both.
Division 6: Shotgun Surgery
Yes, your suspicions have finally been confirmed. It’s Shotgun Surgery by RedSGShredder this round for our D6 players, a thrash metal collab by Hateandhatred and samurai7694. But seriously, after the lot of you took turns having your way with last round’s chart before throwing her out into the streets without even having the common courtesy to provide her with cab fare, who didn’t see this bump up in difficulty coming? With over 3000 notes and clocking in at over four minutes in length…it’s a bit of a doozy. If you guys manage to get past that intro unscathed (anticipating tons of rage from that section alone), be prepared to deal with some pretty dense jumpstreams, slow jack ragebait, and an intricate guitar solo that’ll definitely have you twisting your fingers around. Finally broke the 80+ barrier guys, let’s see what you’re really made of.
So Good luck everyone, and we’ll see approx. half of you next round!!
