Also, I appreciate all the thanks and compliments everyone has been sending my way. At the same time, I can't run a tournament without people, so y'all are awesome for sticking around! With that said, I'm updated the dashboard to only include those that have submitted for every round. So if you're name is up there, you will receive a participation credit prize as a token of my appreciation. There's also the chance to win the Steam gift card as a participation prize; I'll write more about the gift cards some time tomorrow.

Anyways, I had a really fun time organizing this tournament and I'm glad to see that everyone else had a good time as well. For more of a good time, please keep your eyes peeled for my next tournament! The next tournament will be my third installment of a rates tournament so if that sounds like your cup of tea, please be sure to join when I get that tournament up and going :)

Thank you for hosting Reuben! Was a good derust for me and I learned I'm better at handling 65+ files than I thought.

Def wondering what you're investigating in D3, but I'm sure you'll tell us once you've made a conclusion.

Then you didnt get better. Lol
Its an easy song, even when first starting out.
You should be easily getting an fc on it.

Edit: just think of it this way, you got off easy being put in a division lower than you should be in, despite being semi new. Try playing in d1 next time, youll improve MUCH faster :) especially if you actually try and not just complain lol
Literally every song in my division was way too hard for me, but i still tried and had fun. Winning isnt everything.

Edit 2: have you tried spread yet? One hand is more fun but it takes about 5x longer to improve and get better. Take it from a fellow one hander that was known as one of the best. Also, have you tried standalone instead of browser?

Steam Card Raffle Event!
Hi everyone! Onec again, we'll be doing some more marble track racing fun on Shoepert's (aka dashoe93) stream to determine who will be winning the Steam gift cards. The link can be found here.

There are a total of five $20 gift cards. Four of them will be given to the seven players that were first place in their division. After those are distributed, there will be another raffle where the last gift card is given to a participant that has submitted for every round (and isn't one of the 1st place winners that won a gift card. 1st place winners that didn't get a Steam gift in the previous raffle will be entered into the general participation raffle).

The stream will be happening at 6:30pm server time tonight (7:30pm EST). Hope to see you there!

Songs. Theres TONS of purchase songs and theres also secret songs that you unlock the more creds that you get. Unfortunately they counteract eachother and once you spend all your creds the secret songs go away so id play those first :)
Alternatively, theres other stuff in the shop you can buy or as stated already you can just gamble them away. I wouldnt recommend that though since its rigged imo.

Why arent the credits distributed evenly? I think the d1 winners deserve just as many as the d7 players. If anything the d1 players had to try harder...
Cred pot should be the same for each division winner, each second, and each third. Amirite?

I mean everyone who participated gets the same amount whether theyre d1, d7, tried as hard as they could, didnt try and barely submitted scores, etc.

So in the first paragraph you're saying that the winners should get the same amount regardless of division, and in the second paragraph, you're saying the participation prizes should be all the same too?

Never in the history of ever have credit prizes been distributed communist-style like that. Regardless of whether a D1 player tried harder than a D7 player during this tournament, the sum total of how hard the D7 player tried to get to where they are from day one is insanely higher which merits a better reward (in most peoples' opinion). This should be reflected in the winners pool and in the participation pool (even though it wasn't done that way for participation in this tournament, but that's not a huge deal).

I will agree that nearly half the credits going to one person is a bit overboard, but it's not my tournament to run and benguin is free to do what he wants within reason. That being said, you are free to run your own UOT SK8R and handle credit distribution how you see fit.

So youre basically just being elitist, rushy? Not cool dude. For all you know d1, or any other division could have tried for days to get their score to where it is. While being in d7 you pretty much have the skills to aaa every round pretty easily, not counting the last round cuz lol thats meant to be harder.
Participation should be the same for everyone, they didnt win....

one hander elitist

But seriously your logic is so flawed. You're probably one of the people who think there should be a million divisions and everybody gets 1st place because "Bravo you tried". If you dont reward D7 more what's the incentive to get there... It works like that in nearly every game/sport ever.

I dont know how to change that.....ive been trying to for awhile lol

And theres d7 exclusive tokens and stuff. Credits shouldnt be an incentive to try to get to d7.

Idk man, the time investment into the game alone to reach that skill level is crazy. I've been here playing for nearly 13 years but I only just finally, barely, broke into d3 right after tourney ended, because I don't invest a lot of time into playing and practicing. I'd take a lot of breaks and I love playing this game drunk too, so not very conducive of improvement. I definitely don't deserve the same reward as someone who can play songs that my eyes can't read and fingers can't respond to. I didn't put the effort into getting to that level, so why should I get what they get? Doesn't make sense to me anyway.

Let's give the same prize to an elementary school track star that we do for an Olympic gold medalist.

lol D7 should be same credit prize as D1 sick

however i do think the 1st place prize should have probably been distributed D4-D7 and the last card raffled between the winners of D1-3 if the logic is that prizes should be given to higher div players on the basis that they've put more effort.
(RIP D6 winner suicidaln00b)

Edit: I'm not really saying we should switch up the prize distribution, but if we're going to be arguing about this we should keep the logic consistent in the arguments.

Also, since there are now 2 people that have waived the ramen prizes (and that op won a steam card (sorry mang :p)) D5 and D6 first place I think would be the best candidates for the transfer. Should anyone else waive their prize, it will go to the next first place that didn't receive a steam card.

So at this point, Demerai and suicidalnoob can pm me for their much better than a steam card anyway prize :p

Cred pot should be the same for each division winner, each second, and each third. Amirite?

I mean everyone who participated gets the same amount whether theyre d1, d7, tried as hard as they could, didnt try and barely submitted scores, etc.

if we all got the same prizes as everyone else then there is literally no reason to try hard to be the best

it doesn't matter how hard you tried we're not ranking people based on their will power or determination we're ranking them based on pure skill and everyone in D7 is alot higher skill then everyone in D1

Re: FFR Unofficial Tournament 2018 Feat. RamenBox [Get2.5thPlace pastebin.com/tvm28W8
 
There are a few reasons why the credit distributions are different for different reasons. Although this first one is not necessarily the best reason, such a practice has been done for most tournaments on FFR. And even looking at other tournaments/competitions outside of FFR that have competitions at different divisions of skill (say like a amateur and a pro bracket), usually there is a difference in prizes there as well.

Next, one can argue that D7 players have worked harder to get to where they are at. You might say that the D_1 players have worked just as hard as some as D_7 players throughout the duration of this particular tournament and that's a fair point. However, those that have worked very hard will likely be on their way to entering into a higher division which will have the promise of higher prizes anyways. Also, it's perfectly "fair" in the sense that everyone has started off as a D1 player to begin with (perhaps inside or outside of FFR) so current D7 players were getting smaller prizes earlier on in their rhythm gaming journey. Imagine a parent trying to figure out gifts for two children of their children that are 6 years apart in age. A gift that's suitable for a 14 year old likely wouldn't be suitable for an 8 year old. However, if the 8 year old got the same/similar gift as their sibling did when their sibling was 8, then that's perfectly fine.

Putting morals and stuff aside, it also makes sense from a pragmatic perspective. Higher prizes for higher divisions helps to disincentive sandbagging and helps to incentive people to play their best.

The participation prize is the same for each division since all it is supposed to represent is a token of appreciation for completing the tournament. I don't particularly have a reason to appreciate D7's participation more than that of D1's participation.

I also wanted to return to the topic of flashflash account and the whole D0 thing.

To reiterate, D0 wasn't really a division but more of a pilot program for low D1 players so that way they could play for fun, still be rewarded for participating, and play files that are suitable for their skill level. I didn't have any prizes for D0 for multiple reasons, some of which were because of logistic reasons and some of which were due to the idea that there should be some initial bar that players need to pass in order, i.e. like a right of passage, before being able to compete for real prizes.

Currently, the divisions with the highest range of skill are D1 and D7. When it comes to D1, the range of skill in that division is pretty insane. At the top of the division you have people that can AAA some files in the 20's. On the lower end, you have people that can't even pass Power (I've seen people fail Power with my own two eyes).

The reason why I started D0 in the first place is because there were a handful of participants that were completely new to FFR but still wanted to join in the tournament and have some fun. When asked for the difficulty ranges, some of these players were discouraged from playing seeing that the estimated difficulty of Round 1 was way out of their league. It'd be like asking a D2 player to play the D6 songs. Yes, they could play them, but it wouldn't be suitable for their skill level.

Lastly, it's probably been awhile since a lot of us have been in D1. However, we shouldn't dismiss their achievements and improvements. Just because a player hasn't yet achieved a particular milestone that skilled players would find "easy peasy" (like doing well on Policy in the Sky) doesn't mean that that player hasn't been improving nonetheless. I've been watching FFA's scores throughout the duration of this tournament and I will certainly say that he has indeed improved over the course of this tournament.

I just want to point out that flashflash account has more forum posts than he has plays (including 52 on excite bike) LOL

The way you improve is by playing the game with some frequency, meaning more than one play every two days.

Good luck to him.

Whoa now, let's not get off topic, especially when only 5 people have claimed their ramen (and 1 more person has waived their noodles).

At this point if anyone else wants to forgo their prize, I'll eat it myself lol
