Default Kawaii025's Tournament of Randomness

Kawaii025's Tournament of Randomness



Welcome one and all to my very first FFR tournament as a host! So what is this about?

Put on your thinking caps and warm up those fingers! Get ready to play in a tournament where you will have to do a little work to get the prize!

[color="Indigo"]- Signups?
Just post that you want in. Signups will be through the end of round one. No additional entrants will be accepted after.

- Placements?
I'm looking at the leaderboards and going by that. All files should be doable based on your current divisional placing.

- Ghosting?
You can ghost one division above. D7 can ghost one division below. Prizes will not be considered for ghosting scores. It's basically for funsies.

- Scoring?
This will be a cumulative raw scoring tournament.

- Round Info?
Rounds will last for one week (7 days) ending promptly at 11:59:59pm (server time) on Fridays. I may post the new round before then, but submissions for the prior round must be posted prior to the official end. Late submissions will be accepted with a 1000 score penalty per day late. (7 day rounds are due to the upcoming holidays as this tourney will lap though Christmas & New Years.)

- Tiebreakers?
In case of tiebreakers, I'll be looking at the highest Amazing count between the players. Let's hope it doesn't come to that. If you use different engines, then I'm using random.org.

- Donations?
I'm starting off with 500,000 of my own credits. Send all credits to me (Kawaii025) for safekeeping. :3

Oh-em-gee...thanks to thee for the credits, I shout in glee!
devonin - 500,000
PhantomPuppy - 50,000
Kanzas - 192,000
TheToaphster - 49,950 (remind me to give you 99.9% of your prize amount. )
TheWaffleWoofer - 50,000
HardstyleLover - 60,000
sweet2kill210 - 147,787 (Quite the fitting donation method. Points for creativity. )
ULTIMEGA - 25,000
CDCan - 33,333

TOTAL: 1,608,070


- Cheaters?
Don't do it. kthanxbai

- Prizes?
LOTS and LOTS of FFR CREDITS. It'll be great. Maybe a sponcon or two? :O Credit prizes will be distributed only to those who submitted scores for all rounds of their respective division.

- Questions? Concerns? Comments?
Just post them all here... Someone else may be wondering the same thing and it'll be easier for everyone to read before I get the same question in PM 20 times. I stalk this site enough so I'll be around to answer fairly quickly.

But when does the arrow smashing start?
Saturday, December 10th.

- Round Previews?
Sure! There will be 5 rounds total. Spoiler tags will disappear for the current active round.


ROUND 1 - "Play What You Want"

It literally means what it says. Play any file you want that meets the following criteria.
- File must have over 100 notes
- File must be equal to or longer than 1:30, but not longer than 3:30 (kinda don't wanna see a bunch of T&J)
- File must be a public file. No tokens or unlock files of any sort

Difficulties
D1: 10-19
D2: 20-29
D3: 30-39
D4: 40-49
D5: 50-59
D6: 60-69
D7: 70-79

If you AAA, an extra 1000 will be added to your score
If you SDG, an extra 500 will be added to your score
If you FC, and extra 250 will be added to your score

You can submit multiple songs if you find one that works better for you. Please keep in mind that this is a cumulative raw scoring tournament, so choose wisely~

Round 1 will end on Friday December 16th, 2016 at 11:59:59pm server time.

Round 2 - "You Don't Know? Check the Wiki!"
FFR's 10th Official Tournament is where I first divulged into the world of FFR tournaments. I had a lot of fun during that tournament, but unfortunately was eliminated during the 4th round.

With that being said, play your division's 3rd round song from FFR's 10th Official Tournament.



Round 2 ends December 23, 2016 at 11:59:59pm server time.

Good luck!
Hint: The link to the wiki is in the dropdown menu under 'Play FFR'

ROUND 3 - Maybe Hard? Maybe Easy?

Why not both? c: That's right, you're playing not one, but TWO files this round!

Oh boy, so how does this work?

Everyone will play the same easiest file by this simfile author (stepartist). I'm expecting AAA's everywhere. (You can mod this if you feel the file is 'too boring' to play normally)

The 2nd file you will play meets the following requirements:
- Public file
- File stepped alone

Clues to the simfile author (stepartist):
1. Mineral explosions, Typhlosions...?
Now go get wrekt! : )
2. Part of staff

Clue to Hard Song:
D7 - Yosk! - 2012 (93)
D6 - Baco - 2012 (86)
D5 - t+pazolite - 2008 (74)
D4 - Junk - 2014 (66)
D3 - fen - 2011 (55)
D2 - katoh - 2011 (39)
D1 - NEKOTEK - 2008 (25)

Round 3 ends Friday, December 30, 2016 at 11:59:59pm server time!

Good luck!

Round 4 - "I Can Get a Token Too!"

Oh boy, I hope you like skill tokens! Since you all seemingly enjoyed Round 3's dual submission, this round will follow suit!

Meet the requirements to unlock the skill token song listed below, then play the token song. Submit both files. Even if you already have the token file, submit the requirement first (such as what sickufully & Hakulyte have done) and then submit the token file.

- 5000 points for the requirement
- Requirement won't count in figuring out potential tiebreakers.
- Raw score for the song itself

Token unlock files are listed below.

D1 - Three Ring Nightfall (22)
D2 - First Try (27)
D3 - Tribal Style (28)
D4 - Love Cheat! (65)
D5 - JULIAN (72)
D6 - Electro Rush x8 v2 (88)
D7 - Extratone Pirates in a Perfect World (94)

Good luck!

Hint: That menu below 'Play FFR' is your friend.

Round 4 will end on Friday, January 6, 2017 at 11:59:59pm server time!

Round 5 - SCRAMBLED!

As 'teased' before, this round will be up on the difficulty~

Objective:
Unscramble the names of these FFR files using the clues listed. 1st player from each division to submit the correct file for their respective division will receive 2000 credits from my personal pool.

***SPON CON UNTIL 01/12/17 at 9:00:00pm SERVER TIME***
I made up a poem.

Random "Piano" Thoughts"
by Kawaii025

What do I have to do in order to be Legendary (D7)? Do I have to learn Gymastics? Perhaps I could be a Guru (D6), but I may have to play with Demon Fire. I could be the very best as a Master (D5), but there seems to be 0 chance of that sometimes. Don't get me wrong, I am quite rhythmically challenged in A World full of Experts at D4. Somehow I seemingly zipped through Advanced (D3) in 600 seconds while thinking I was still strumming on an Intermediate (D2) Guitar. However this all ends, something we can all say is that once upon a time, we were all a Solid Beginner.


The end.
