1st Unofficial FFR Self-Improvement Tournament
 
Do you wonder what it is like to compete against others outside of your own division? What about competing against yourself? Interested in joining an unconventional tournament that is facilitated by the programming powers of Python?

Welcome to the 1st Unofficial FFR Self-Improvement Tournament!

Tournament Rules and Overview:

This tournament is designed to motivate all participants to improve their own personal best scores. By the nature of how scoring is defined, this tournament will contain no skill divisions. Players conventionally assigned to D1 in standard tournaments will have a unique opportunity to compete against some of the top ranked players!

Bonus: Everyone fully participating in this event will be guaranteed to earn credits!

Eligibility Requirements:

To control fairness for all involved participants, prior to signing up, we ask each interested member to meet the following requirements:
  • have at least 100 recorded unique scores to build out a complete "Top 100 Scores" page
  • be an active member of the community for at least 0.5 years (**)
  • hold Top 100 AAA equivalent scores within range of player's skill set (++)
(**) Message me if you don't meet this requirement.
(++) This is determined by using a mathematical formula I created in my Python script. Sorry for being unclear here!

I have written a Python script to determine your eligibility based on these conditions. If you fail to meet eligibility requirements, the only suggestion I would recommend you to do before signing up is to play more songs and improve your Top 100 scores (particularly your lowest ranked scores). This Python script is designed to minimize the amount of potential sandbagging so that all participants will have a fair and hopefully fun experience! Ineligible participants will be notified privately to make sure their scores are valid for entry. They will also have until the start of the tournament to reapply for eligibility. Feel free to reach out to me in private if you need better understanding what the ask is. Thanks!

Of course, not every Python script is fully foul-proof, so if any suspicious activity surfaces during the progression of the tournament, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will address the concern appropriately.

Tournament Organization and Scoring:

After the signup deadline is passed, I will run another Python script to save and store your Top 100 scores before the start of the first round of the tournament. There will be a total of five rounds (each one week long) for every eligible participant.

Song choices per round will be determined by your own Top 100 scores (you have 20 song options to choose from). Specifically, each player will have the option to submit any score for songs ranked:
  • Round One: 81 to 100 in player's Top 100 scores
  • Round Two: 61 to 80 in player's Top 100 scores
  • Round Three: 41 to 60 in player's Top 100 scores
  • Round Four: 21 to 40 in player's Top 100 scores
  • Round Five: 1 to 20 in player's Top 100 scores
Scoring will be measured based on how many raw goods you have successfully shaved from your previous personal best. This is defined by your raw score submission minus your previous best raw score submission. These deltas will then be added up to get your overall score. Credits will be distributed based on your total score.

Lastly, to further incentivize fixing scores closer to AAA while maintaining the respect that I, as the host of the tournament, will not be receiving any credits at the conclusion of the event, in addition to winning the credits received by fully participating in the event, I will be re-distributing my accumulated earnings to every active participant with improvements that match closely to the respective song's maximum AAA equivalency. This credit redistribution will occur at the conclusion of the tournament.

Cash Prize Distribution:

Huge shoutouts to Rapta for adding $150 in the overall prize pool! The cash prizes of $30 will be rewarded to five lucky participants, generally chosen at random. Two of these participants would be chosen randomly from the list of Top 5 winners of the tournament, and the remaining three would be chosen randomly from the remaining set of participants.

Score Submissions:

Please post screenshots of your scores on this thread to submit a score. This is done by using Snipping Tool or Print Screen button to save the image on your local computer (make sure to crop the image appropriately) then uploading the image on a free image hosting site.

After the image is successfully loaded online, RIGHT CLICK on the image and click "Copy image address". Use this image path to attach the screenshot in your post!

You are welcome to submit as many scores within the 20 song choices available to you for a given round. Please try to minimize duplicate posts by updating your post if necessary. I will be posting "Updated scoreboard to here." posts throughout the duration of the tournament, giving you the cue to create a new post to further update your scores if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I cannot improve any score for a given round?
Unfortunately, you will be submitting a negative score for this round. However, you can try to get a score closest to your previous personal best to minimize the decrease of your overall total. Remember, you have 20 different songs to choose from, so this should be enough for you to find an option that would help you avoid losing too many points.

What if I don't submit a score for a given round?
Failure to submit a score for a round will disqualify you from receiving any credits/cash from this event. These credits will be redistributed to the remaining active participants, increasing everyone else's potential credit earnings. It is your best interest to submit any score to guarantee winning credits, even if you receive a negative score for all rounds!

What if I obtained a Top 100 score outside of the tournament (via new song, improvement of a song not assigned in a round, etc.)?
These scores shouldn't have any impact to the song choices you can play in all five rounds. This is the reason why your Top 100 scores are cached previous to the start of the first round. If you don't know what songs qualify for a round's song submission, feel free to reach out to me and I can let you know!

What if we have multiple songs improved within the song choices we have? (Credit: badman7772)
Your tracked score will be the best improvement of all submitted scores for that round. If you are unsure which improvement is considered the best, it's okay to just submit all of your songs attempted. I would kindly ask you to submit scores within reason (i.e. submitting only your improved scores vs. literally all 20 lol). Thanks!

Oops.. I am late to register for the tournament. Can I sign up for the tournament?
Unfortunately, I will not be accepting late registrations to the tournament due to the fact that I need to cache everyone's scores at the same timestamp. I am purposely giving a bit of time to allow everyone to join the tournament with advance notice, so please be aware next time!

1st Unofficial?
That's correct! If this tournament kicks off well, I plan to host future self-improvement tournaments on an annual basis. My Python scripts are already well-equipped to deal with this (:

I do have a question though as a lot of players will ask this.

What if we have multiple songs improved within the song choices we have? Do those totals add up so we earn more credits that way or is it your best improvement of all the songs you improved?

I'll add that in the FAQ.

It will be the best improvement for that round. If you are unsure which improvement is considered the best, it's okay to just submit all of your songs attempted. I would kindly ask to submit scores within reason (i.e. submitting only your improved scores vs. literally all 20 lol). Thanks!

Updated participant list to here.

I have contacted Logman6656 to work on improving his current top scores. Once his scores are more reflective of his skill set, I will add him to the eligible participant's list!

I edited the main post to make it clearer what that requirement asks for. Most participants should be able to meet this requirement, so don't worry too much about it.

It's still a little ambiguous (sorry about that), but basically I created a math formula (similar to the idea of z-scores in statistics for those really interested), that will identify if your high scores are within your expected skill set.

This is to prevent players to join an improvement tournament, where their Top 15 scores are gained when a player is in "try hard" mode and their other Top 85 scores are gained through very minimal effort on their behalf.

Any player highlighted in red will have up until the start of the tournament to fix their Top 100 scores :)

You can still join if you are interested! You'll be winning credits regardless, and this would hopefully give you motivation to further improve your scores!

I think that's correct. Round 1 is Rank 81 - 100 in your Top 100 scores. In your case: Endless Altercation, Sunny Side Up, ..., Hero's Theme (w.i.p.) would be eligible songs for you Round 1.

Updated participant's list to here.

UPDATES:
  • • Due to how strict my current Python eligibility algorithm is set, I tweaked a hyperparameter from 1.5 to 1.6 so that requirements are a bit less strict. This qualifies oOL3G1TxG4M3ROo to be eligible for the tournament. I will also send over 5,000 credits to Logman6656 for working very hard to meet the original requirements. Apologies to all players that were effected by this change.
  • • Huge shoutouts to Rapta for kindly sponsoring the tournament and kindly rewarding cash prizes as part of the overall prize pool! Stay tuned for how cash prizes will be distributed!
The following players are ineligible to participate:
CordingWater6: Expected Minimum (will fluctuate): 2.41, Actual Minimum: 0.1

This is a no division tournament. Would there be a simfile choice for the second place winner of the tournament?

Thanks for the clarification! Last question, say I have one song at 28 goods and one at 26, and I improve them both to 10 goods, is it always better to submit the score for the one that was at 28 or does it have more factors such as how many notes there are in the song or whatever?

Mine too. I try every session to improve upon my top 100 and the only way I do is when I bump one off the list. It's never improving one that's already there haha

I love the idea, I'm just bad at improving scores when most of the I have blocks on anyways. My Pandora 2-1-1-1 was pure luck and I'm lucky to get less than 10g and fc it now haha

In this situation, the scores would be both equivalent so in that sense, it wouldn't matter. However, it is your best interest to submit the score closer to the AAA because at the conclusion of the tournament, I will be distributing my accrued earnings to everyone based on how close these improved scores are close to the AAA. It would be a minimal credit gain, but if you want to maximize your earnings, that would be my suggestion!

Question: If you're capturing our top 100 at the start of the event, should we just not play songs in our current top 100 outside the ones for the round we're in?

I assume the reason it's week-long rounds and not just cumulative is that you want everybody to only have one week to work on improving the song, so what happens if you snapspot my ranks before round 1, and then I play a song in my 21-40 and improve it? Do you re-snapshot before round 4 and get that as the baseline score?

From the sounds of it, a snapshot of your top 100 is taken right before the tournament starts and then that is used for the entire tournament. But it seems to make more sense if the snapshot is taken before each round cause of the case you're mentioning. @WirryWoo can you confirm how this works?
