Technically speaking, everyone should use that rate:

0.1000000000000005
Now that you mention that, "PA" is a bit loose of a term, so I'm perfectly fine with that being the case, and I will update the third post as such.

Also, I know playing long songs is really annoying. That's why all the songs for the contest, are under a minute

And why that's the spon con in the first place. ^___^

I debated picking easier songs but I felt a difficulty scale up would make things more interesting.

Also, standings have been posted in post three, in a way that allows users to view them easily. I'll later rearrange them as to who is winning will be on the top for convenience, but /lazy.

I know Haku has more amazings than I do, so I'll probably do this again later. I really like this spon con though, since it allows me to kind of sort of compete with someone that's about a thousand times better than me.

HI GUYS.

We're gonna get this going a tad early. Or late. I can't remember anymore.

Anyways, due to how sign ups have gone, we've adjusted divisions to be as they are on the Spreadsheet

Participants may be adjusted depending on any sign ups that are done during round one. IF a new division is made to accomidate sign ups, any users moved will be given extra time, and notified properly.

Onto what you all really care about though:

ROUND ONE: 'CAUSE IT'S TOO DAMN EASY

D2: Happy Happy Shining Star!! [Light] 15
D3: Gruntilda's Lair 24
D4: Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Rondo 33
D5: Vanity Angel (Seraphim Mix) 39
D6: Electrical Parade -Remix- 46
D7: {Rose} 55

Round one ends October 7th @11:59PM SERVER TIME.
Sign ups will remain open until round one ends.

All of this information will be available on the OP

I have NO words for how I pulled that off. Sec I'll toss you in.

Edit: Possibly forgot to add several people.

So uh, I'm gonna go through and double check real quick. Man I fucked that up.

Edit 2: Confirmed didn't place a few people. MISTAKES WERE MADE. FIXING IT. wow.

edit 3: It's not too many people. Luckily. Yes I feel posting these edits is important so you know what's going on. This is our blunder, super sorry about this guys. I didn't do my usual double check I used to and man oh man are we paying for it.

Yeah the issue is we don't really have a true D1 of at least a few people. Also yeah you do have the outlier, so I CAN justified your D2 placement. I also recall seeing a second score that kinda leans me to a D2 spot.

Like to be blunt: You're probably only going into D2 because it's 1. Easier this way, and 2. because even with that one score, you could easily boost to be proper D2 over the course of the tourney, which works out at the end anyways.

That score does give me faith that you can do D2 though, as D2 isn't a division that in particular gets slammed hard. I know a lot of the easier files better than I do the harder ones, so I was able to reach what I felt was a better curve that I can justify.

Hope that this explanation makes a lot of sense and isn't like, rude at all. I tried to keep it from being that way, but I think putting it bluntly and honestly is the better approach.

Which is unfortunate to be honest. I mean, if you wanna play through all the rounds for a prize I'm not objecting to that, or if you'd like to play D6 with the round 7 files as a handicap I'd be fine with that too I think. I'd have to check with Ben when he gets back though.

Progress report:

Quick placements are done, and I peeked at a few people at random to make sure I agreed with the placements. All of them went fine with what I'd place you all without the leaderboard to go off of.

I'm working on updating the spread sheet and the round announcement post shortly after.

Also, everything should be updated, fixed, and put up accurately.

I'd like to again, apologize as heavily as possible for all of this. I was supposed to check and double check everything, and for some reason opted to skipped that step. It was absolutely sloppy, and it SHOULDN'T happen ever. I hope to co-run the rest the tourney with the absolute minimum of hiccups possible from here on out.

Edit: Zenith should you decide you wish to partake, I will happily set up the spreadsheet accordingly.

edit 2: IF I have made ANY more mistakes that you folks can point out I'll start awarding a very small credit prize for any other mistakes.

I think the songs are pretty hard for round 1 considering we're expected to AAA them on the highest rate possible. I expected them to be a lot easier. Jsayin'

Note that we can use rates under 1.0x to get scores so if a song is too hard, I guess we can just like AAA them on 0.8x rate or something. In that case, I guess the difficulty is fine.



Edit: The grind is real.
