SPON CON!!! (Concluded)

For those looking for something else to do while Round 1 is still on-going, we have a fun little Spon(taneous) Con(test) for all of you! Note that this Spon Con is optional and has no bearings on your standing in the tournament; it is just a fun little activity to snag some ffr credits :)

For this Spon Con, we want you to play Excite Bike...on 0.1x rate! Yes, that's a slow rate which means the song will be longer, but luckily Excite Bike is a relatively short file :) The first 10 people to post a AAA score on Excite Bike on 0.1x rate will receive 2,500 credits.

What is this all about?
Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I've been involved with the site (too much adulting in the way). Anyways, it seems there's been a decline in user-run tournaments as of late and I thought some people would be itching to have some fun playing the game again!

Last time, I ran a rates tournament (with the help of Xelnya) and I'm hoping to bring you guys yet another rates tournament! The rules/formats have changed considerably since last time to hopefully make the tournament more enjoyable so please take the time to read the details below!

How do I register?
Simply post in the thread that you would like to participate! You may register at any time between now and the end of the first round.

How will this tournament work?
1) This is an culmulative style tournament with 6 rounds. The existence of divisions will be determined on the number of participants.
2) At the start of each round, the name of the round's file and a randomly generated integer X between the value of 10 and 100 will be posted.
3) You will play the file on the highest rate possible while trying to get at most X goods. Misses/Averages/Boos are also ok as long as your raw score is equivalent to X goods or less.
4) For the purposes of scoring, your rate IS your score. Any score that has more than the equivalent of X goods will be given a score of zero.
5) Rates must be in 0.05 increments. If your rate is not divisible by 0.05, we will round your rate DOWN to the nearest 0.05.
6) At the end of the tournament, for each participant we will sum up their best score from each round. The participant with the highest sum in each division wins!

How do submissions work?
1) Submissions will be via screenshot submissions. After you finish the file, take a screenshot of the result, making sure to include your username and timestamp. Afterwards, post your submission in the thread.
2) Replays are not a valid form of submission.
3) You may submit as many times as you want during the duration of the round in an attempt to improve your score. Your best score for that round will be taken when determining your final score for that round.

Cheating?
Don't.

What division will I be placed in?
Due to the general amount of activity this site has these days...I am worried about not having enough participants. If there are enough participants, divisions will be determined as given in the next paragraph. Otherwise, the tournament will be a single division tournament (although we will have suitable participation prizes for those that stick around to the end).

For preliminary placements, we will use the FFR leaderboards here in order to place you. Based on your levelranks/replays/etc, we reserve the right to move you to another division we feel is more appropriate if need be.

Credits/Prizes
We will be starting off the tournament with 250,000 credits. We will happily accept donations of both the credit and non-credit variety. We will add your contribution to the list once we have received it. Credit distributions will be determined at the end of the tournament. Also, since this tournament is officially backed, we will also be giving out event token prizes to the winners! See below more information regarding tokens.

Donations
To donate, go to the "Play FFR" tab in the upper-right hand corner, click "credit shop", and on the top of the page should be a form to donate credits. Just put my username "reuben_tate", your donation amount, and an optional message .

TOKENS! :D


I just wanted to make an announcement regarding token prizes. Thanks to rushyrulz and the FFR Event Staff, our tournament has been given official backing. Their backing includes an additional 250,000 credits and some token prizes for the winners.

Who will win the tokens?
For divisions with at least 5 players, first place winners will receive a token of their choice (more info below). For divisions with at least 10 players, first and second place winners will receive a token of their choice. With that said, here is a quick breakdown with what that means for each division:
D7 - token of choice for 1st and 2nd place
D6 - token of choice for 1st and 2nd place
D5 - token of choice for 1st place
(we're expecting to have at least 5 people in D5 after divisions are finalized)
D4 - token of choice for 1st and 2nd place
D3 - there's only one person in this division so they will be absorbed into either D2 or D4
D2 - token of choice for 1st place
D1 - token of choice for 1st place

What tokens can I pick?
You can pick amongst the following tokens. Only 1st place winners may select the bolded tokens.
-The Wises Were Wrong
-FREEDOM DiVE

-Dendrite v2
-Coactive [Over My Shoulder Mix]
-Tell v3 (Extended Mix)
-Touhou Judgment in the Sixtieth Year
-The Bridgeport Run
-Bedtime Story

What if I'm awarded a token but have them all already?
You'll be rewarded with 50,000 credits instead.




Late Scores
We will allow people to submit late scores with a penalty of -0.11x per round that the score is late. Late scores must be submitted before the end of the final round to be eligible for participation prizes.

Song Choices
For each round, a song from the difficulty ranges listed below will be picked.
Round 1: 1-30
Round 2: 31-50
Round 3: 51-65
Round 4: 66-75
Round 5: 76-85
Round 6: 86-95


Questions/Concerns
Any questions about the tournament can be sent either myself (reuben_tate) via PM. Alternatively, you can post in the thread as well and I'll respond appropriately.

will play if rates no longer massively lagspike on this laptop

I'm not certain if that's the case but the engine's been updated a few times since I've last tried rates so I'm hoping it might no longer be an issue

ositzxz369 12-9-2017 05:15 PM

Re: Benguin's Rates Tourney #2
 
When you say "play the file on the highest rate possible", does this mean I get to choose the song rate (like 1.2x, 2.0x, etc)? Would I be forced to disqualify myself if there is no other participants at my division? Also, what does "donations of non-credit variety" include?

Thanks for asking!

When I say "play the file on the highest rate possible", you get to choose the song rate you play at. For example, if Round 1 was Excite Bike and the threshold was 10 goods, then you will play Excite Bike and try to find the fastest rate you can possibly complete Excite Bike at while still getting under 10 goods. You can keep playing and re-submitting as many times as needed, so for example, if you post a score of Excite Bike with 8 goods at 1.6x speed, try to see if you can get under 10 goods on 1.65x speed, etc. Also note that as the tournament progresses, the files will become more difficult, so it may become necessary for some players to play on a rate that's lower than 1.0x in order to complete the song with the given threshold for goods.

As for divisions, I'll create divisions if there are enough participants to warrant them. If I do create divisions, I'll be sure to create the division boundaries in a way that each division has a suitable number of people.

By donations of the credit-variety, I'm talking about FFR credits. As for donations of the non-credit variety, it could be anything. It can be a tangible or an intangible good or a service (in the past, some people would create avatars or profile backgrounds/designs for people).

Hope that answers your questions!
