Default ~D4 Rivalry v2~

V2 of the D4 rivalry

Doug has decided to go a different way in life, but the D4 rivalry he started will continue. Original thread here.

What's going on here?

We're tracking general improvement of D4 players in a competitive environment. If you'd like to join in let us know. We have a number of active players all over the spectrum of D4. (The participant list will be edited soon)

TheSaxRunner05
Yulanik
drizzleRomanceGirl
shenjoku
MracY
PrawnSkunk
Viisbyxa
xAlphaWolf


What you as a rivalry member should do:
1) Play the week's assigned songs.
2) Submit a screenshot or replay of the song.

Make sure your username and timestamp are on the screenshot. Replays have this info already, so they're good to go.

3) Improve your scores on the songs to try to snag the best score on the song that week.

V2 Spreadsheet Here

Details:

1) This is a Raw Score zone. Raw Scoring will be used. FC something? That's great for levelranks. FCing stuff with a clean PA is better for showing improvement as a player.

2) New scores only.

3) Six songs will be selected from suggestions, or randomizing when we don't get enough songs. Songs for the week will be posted sometime on Fridays. The weeks end at 11:59 pm server time on Fridays. The songs selected will be between the difficulties of 57 and 80. An amount of care will be taken to not have duplicates for a reasonable time.

4)Points will be given as the person getting the best score on the song 12 points. The second best scorer will receive 10 points, 9 points to the 3rd best, (points will be awarded for 4th through 9th in the same fashion), and from 11th on, they will receive one point.

Important Notice About Points: Points will not be awarded to those who haven't submitted on all 6 songs of the week. This is to make points have a better general representation of the player's hopefully improving skill.

5) Participants may eventually be asked to leave due to their skills improving, I like to call it Graduating. It likely won't be sudden.

6) A prize pot has been added. Every week the pot will be distributed among the participants. The credit amount they receive will be equivalent to the percentage of the total points awarded they have received. Anyone may donate to the pot.

Have fun everyone.


These are grouped by weeks.

Thanks for keeping this going Axith. I really appreciate it

Scores for this week are pretty good. Think I can improve all of them quite a bit though with a bit of practice.

browser seems to be taking a shit on the FFR engines again, as well as my usual spread set-up seem to have a major problem since I probably broke the switches or something. Nobody didn't seem to like the idea of me participating anyways.

I'm kinda surprised I did so well. I haven't played that song in forever and I don't remember being so good at it XD

Scores:
I really want the AAA on this. I got a missflag before the blackflag. I'm going to concider a scorewipe if I get a booflag. Ok, maybe not, but booflags are awful.




My best score on Devilz Staircase ever.

This score surprised me a ton. The solo's really tricky.

I'm glad to do it, I hope that the rest trickle in here soon as well. Very nice Summertime Perfume score. Doesn't look like there will be an such a gigantic improvement on your scores as there have been in previous weeks. It's a good thing.

James: No worries about not playing this week, I'm not taking a butcher knife to the spreadsheet.

Spreadsheet will be updated to this post by the time I go to sleep. drizzleRomanceGirls' scores from the original thread are up already, I won't make you post them again. Just noticed I haven't taken care of points on last week. It will be a project for tomorrow.

If anyone has some idea's regarding uses for points I'd like to hear them. Doug originally wanted to use the points to seed people in a mini tournament.

Maybe the points could be use to 'buy' the right to name song(s) for the next week. Say 30 points for the first song per person, 40 for the next and so on.

edit: maybe also a bonus of like 10-20 points for 1st-3rd place each week

Talking Re: ~D4 Rivalry v2~

I really like the idea of a mini-tournament! Maybe there could be two or three separate divisions within D4 for it's more evenly matched.

*edit* Yay!, I improved my Summer Time Perfume score. ^.^



*double-edit* Wow, I did really well!



*triple-edit* OMG...I think I skillboosted. O.o



*quadruple-edit* Yes, I think I did!



*quintuple-edit* Oops, I forgot to post this replay from before. ^.^



*sextuple-edit* This song is really difficult to do well on with all the mini-jacks and jumpstreams, but I received a much better score!

I'd never get to pick a song.
Especially if there was a bonus on top of earning more points in the first place.

I mean come on, even drizzle is faster than me now and she's just recently D4 (rain)
