Hall of Fame – Class of 2022 Inductees

Posted in FFR News, Flash Flash Revolution on January 27th, 20239 Comments »

PLAYER CATEGORY

Matthia

Bursting onto the scene only a handful of years ago, he single-handedly took FFR’s bragboard over. Over the past handful of years, many of FFR’s top rated songs began to fall as an astounding 53 songs rated 100+ were AAA’d by him in the last 2 years – including the 3rd ever RATO AAA.
Multiple D8 podium finishes in Official Tournaments, the first player to hit 3000 AAAs, and forays into creating stepcharts, and difficulty consulting, there are not many more deserving than Matthia.

At time of induction:
1st place for Most AAA’s
Rank 2 for FFR Rank
Rank 2 for Average Rank

Hakulyte

If FFR the game is the blood that keeps one alive, Hakulyte is the heart keeping it going. A dedicated player for over 17 years at the time of induction, Hakulyte has achieved stats that mirror the level of love and dedication put into FFR.
The first player to hit 100 billion grandtotal; the first to hit 200 billion – and achieved just after only the second to hit 100 billion; 2500 AAAs; participant in every single Official FFR Tournament; and a love for the game that continues today.

At time of induction:
Rank 1 for FFR Grandtotal
Most Games Played
15th place for Most AAA’s

One Winged Angel

Regardless of what era you were around for, there’re few names that have stuck around during that time. This is one of them. The growth can be measured through the years. The Oni unlock, and then the subsequent fights to AAA a Guru chart; the videos showcasing an unusual, yet infectious, sense of humour (and which spawned a trilogy of funny mashcore songs), and finally the barrier being broken and the floodgates crashing as the scores and AAAs continued to pile up.
Included with a small amount of time as a site moderator, and one stepfile accepted, OWA has also spent time difficulty consulting, and continues to improve.

At time of induction:
3rd place for Most AAA’s
Rank 4 for Average Rank
Rank 31 for FFR Rank

CONTRIBUTOR CATEGORY

hi19hi19

There are not many users who have their name on the identity of FFR more than this one. Only one other person, in fact, has their name in-game more often. At a staggering 196 stepcharts in-game at the time of induction, the one affectionately known as “Cornman” is also arguably the most identifiable.
Continually pushing the boundaries of charting, hi19hi19 has stepped the hardest charts in game multiple times over, and even the easiest. Covering practically every difficulty from 1 (Power) to 130, hi19 is everywhere, and has made his mark on FFR, and its users since 2006.

At time of induction:
196 stepcharts in-game (2nd all-time)
Hardest chart in game
Has had at least one step-chart released every year since 2006-2022

gold stinger

While more of a recent familiar face to many, gold stinger has been quietly behind the scenes for a longer period of time, and encapsulates many qualities worthy of the Hall of Fame. From a player perspective, he’s accomplished reaching Division 7, and over 2500 AAAs; as well, he has amassed a resumé of 35 stepcharts in-game, spent time on the Event Staff of FFR, as well as a member of the judge team, before transitioning over to Game Manager early in 2022, and helping re-face the identity of FFR’s staff.

At time of induction:
FFR Game Manager (2022)
Hosted the 15th Official FFR Tournament
FFR Staff member (2013-14, 2017-now)

Thanks to everyone for voting and a huge congrats to the inductees! You all deserve it!

Songs of the Week and Weekly Update 1/21/2023

Hello again and welcome to the third Songs of the Week release for January!

New Staff and More Applications
First off, we added two new Difficulty Consultants from the recent application period. Please welcome Elite Ninja and jacobvl39 to the staff team!

We’re also opening up applications for our Event Team! If feel like you could help us out with a steady amount of fun event ideas throughout the year, please take the time to apply by filling out this form! Applications for the Event Team position will be open until February 3rd at 11:59 PM server time. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact justin.

Ongoing Events
Reminder that the voting period for the FFR Hall of Fame – Class of 2022 is still open! Please take the time to vote if you haven’t already. The voting period ends on January 26th at 11:59 PM server time.

Moderation
Rapta has created a new tool to assist with multiplayer moderation, making it simpler than ever before to be notified about and respond to various situations!

In the past, for moderation to occur in multiplayer, one of two things would have to happen – a user reports an issue, or a moderator is present during the occurrence of said issue. The tool can do things like catch someone trying to bypass the in-game obscene word filter, whether it’s in a room name or a message, and notify the moderation team so swifter action can be taken. It can also assist in dealing with ban evasion in various ways.

That’s it for the news! Have fun playing the new songs and listening to our new musician this time around!

Hey, folks! Just a quick post with a small update on R^3.

R^3 version 1.4.6 has just been released and can be found on our download page. This update fixes an issue from 1.4.5 and adds in a new song flag that designates which songs you have played all the way through and have therefore passed. The change log has been posted below for your convenience.

Change Log:
