Default EMG Rivalry [D4/D5/D6]

Welcome to the EMG Rivalry

Also known as the D4/D5/D6 (Expert/Master/Guru) Rivalry, of which this is hopefully the stable reincarnation. Ideally the Official Tournament will revitalize the activity here when it comes around!


Rivalry Goals

Promote a friendly and social environment where people can skillboost while smashing some arrows.
Want to get better? Need people to compete with? We're trying to create group we can do this with.

Format

The basic overview is that each week, divisions are given 3 songs to play spanning their skill range both above and below. Everyone is encouraged to play each of the songs to the best of their ability and submit scores here to see how you're doing! You'll have others right there with you so you have a bit of friendly competition. I'd love to see participants keep at it and participate every week, persistence definitely pays off!

The ultimate goal of this rivalry is self-improvement, so never get discouraged when you're not doing as well as you want to! In addition, completing all of the songs for the week will make you eligible to earn credit rewards from the weekly credit pot, which grows as more people participate.
(One and done playthroughs of the songs are discouraged, you won't be getting better that way)

Track your progress on the spreadsheet to check your rankings and improvements as the weeks pass!

(Note: this section pertains to the old system we used to use)
On the spreadsheet, member names & songs for the Expert Division (D4) will be in green, and member names & songs for the Master Division (D5) will be in yellow. The Guru Division (D6) is colored with red. The maximum raw score for each song will be below its name. The dates for the current week will be at the top along with the most recently updated post number.

Next to the raw scores for the submissions will be a number for ranking points for that song among the division, the lowest of which is 1, and the highest of which is the amount of players that have submitted scores for all songs. The order is determined by the best raw score earning the highest amount of points. Ranking points are only given to players who have completed all of the weekly songs and are used to help determine the amount of credits awarded to each participant for that week.

Credit formula is as follows:

n = number of active players for the week, per division
iRP = ranking points per individual player
tRP = total ranking points for the division
tRP = Σ[i=1:n](3*i) , (3, 9, 18, 30, 45, 63, 84, ...)

(iRP/tRP)*(1000*n)+500 , rounded to the nearest whole number

~ Don't submit scores with rates. If a song is really long and you feel that rates will help, NO! Don't do it... just don't...
~ Scores are to be posted either in this thread, or PM'd through FFR, or through Skype pm -> (Send links to a Rivalry Staff member)

If you fail to follow these guidelines to submit the score properly, you score will not be recorded.

Mac
Command + Shift + 4 > click and drag over the entire gaming window > check desktop for .png > upload to a convenient file sharing site > copy image link

The point of this is to encourage broad competition and improve as a whole. If you all play the songs each week, striving to do better will help you in the long run, and reward you along the way. Everyone loves to see people improve! Just play to the best of your ability, and remember, have fun! If you get frustrated you can always come back later and revisit the songs, and don't be afraid to ask for advice in the thread. It's a single-player game that we can still play with our friends, and we're here to enjoy it.

Joining

To participate, simply confirm your interest by posting in the thread! You'll be added to the spreadsheet once your division has been determined, and know we're glad to have you. There's also a Skype group running: if you're interested in hanging out, posting scores, or looking for multiplayer buddies, you can add me (with a message saying who you are on FFR), and I'll get you into the group as soon as I can!

*As people are generally moving over to Discord, feel free to join the main FFR Discord server that has been set up!*
https://discord.gg/QK94SZP

If any of you have questions, don't be afraid to ask! I'm usually on several times a day and will be able to respond shortly.

ATTENTION
FFRMania is an amazing practice engine (10/10 recommend please use) with a titanic amount of files to play to get better with various techniques, or to play some really tough files, or even to fool around with dump files.

PrawnSkunk has set up an alternate engine for us (EMG), and there's a small collection of songs added for us. Might have more use in the future but it's there for now.

The .swf and .xml links are below. Please refer to the FFR Standalone Guide if you need help with running the .swf or .xml links for Adobe Flash Player.

I played everything for giggles:

I trilled too fast, wut? Lost my composure after that. Will try for a AAA.



Good song, nothing too tricky. AAA for this definitely possible, too.



Aww, I remember when I was in D2 and I loved the heck out of this song even though I got like 30 misses on it and had arm pains after playing it. <3



[14][23] and [13][24] Jump Trills. Probably my worst pattern in the game other than jacks.


Wow. Insane improvement since I played this for the Zenith's Helping Hand Tourney at the beginning of the month: 42-1-6-6 was the best I could muster up at that point.



Need to learn to clean up my 32nd rolls.



Felt like I was playing near my absolute best. A really great run.



Jacks are blegh, most misses from laziness (although if I tried to hit them, I'd probably double my goods haha). I guess my goal will be sub-100 and single-digit-misses? That'd be cool


Real surprised that I got the requirement on my first try.



Fun stuff, I'll try and improve these throughout the week. :3

Some initial scores. Will improve.





The above is a screencap of the r3 replay. Let me know if it should just be redone.

You're all good, screencapping the replay still shows the appropriate date.
