New Tournament Format - Blitz Tourney
 
Introducing a new Blitz tournament format that I hope will allow for some more frequent but fairly substantial and challenging competitive tournaments.

THE GOAL OF THIS TOURNAMENT IS TO MAKE EVERY SONG SUPER HARD YOU SHOULD DO BADLY AND STRUGGLE TO IMPROVE SO IF YOU GET DISCOURAGED BY BAD SCORES MAYBE DON'T

How does it work?

In a Blitz tournament, we follow the same scoring system as other non-elimination tournaments: There are 6 rounds, the scoring is cumulative, there are no eliminations, but there are two key differences:

1. The whole tournament is 2 weeks long

2. All six songs are playable, from day 1 to day 14

How do I enter?

You can enter the tournament via the Official Signup Link Here: http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/...ent/signup.php

What will the rounds be like?

Since all 6 rounds are open at once, and it is a cumulative event, my goal in song selection will be to basically pick 6 songs that would all have been of 'final round' difficulty in a normal tournament. Ideally nobody should be getting a AAA on more than 1 or 2 rounds that happen to dovetail with their particular skills, unless they put in a lot of work on improvement.

Why run this as a Blitz event?

I don't like how most tournaments involve a lot of getting 4 rounds in and deciding you can't catch somebody and quit, having put a month into the event. Since the whole thing is 2 weeks, it's a short enough time to keep attention and focus for the whole duration, and since all songs are playable at all times, I hope it will create more competition as somebody passing you in the standings will cause you to go back to other songs you 'finished' already to try and improve scores.

When will the tourney run?

The tournament starts at 7:00am Server Time Sunday January 20th, and runs until 7:00am Sunday, February 3rd

Other Stuff / FAQ

Things that should go without saying, really.

Don't cheat. Scores will submit automatically. If they don't, let me know and we'll look into it. By default you'll be placed into your division based on your skill rating. I will get somebody smarter than me to look over the list and make sure nobody is sneaking in with a sandbag. Etc etc. We've all done this lots of times.

Q: Can I enter with my lower division alt that plays index/one-hand/whatever?

A: Absolutely just PM me from your main account with the name, what division you want, and that you understand that account won't be eligible for prizes

A Reiteration

The songs are going to be really hard. I don't want anybody to AAA, Heck, I want people to struggle to FC. The goal of this structure is to keep people actively competing and trying for the whole two weeks, to eke out a few more points, not AAA/SDG the first 4 rounds and have the winner be determined in round 5 and 6.

What do I mean? I mean each division is likely looking at nothing but songs at the high end of the division ABOVE them.
Code:

D1        0 - 25 Songs 37-48
D2        26 - 49 Songs 55-62
D3        50 - 58 Songs 64-70
D4        59 - 68 Songs 75-80
D5        69 - 82 Songs 86-92
D6        83 - 95 Songs 96-100
D7        96+        Songs 103-110

Prizing

Credits: 2,027,500
Tokens: Event Tokens for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each division


Eligible Tokens:
You can pick amongst the following tokens. Only 1st place winners may select the bolded tokens.

So D2 should be expecting 55-58, D5 should be expecting 90+ and D6 likely will all be 100+

Sorry D7, this means Undici, RATO, Death Piano etc.

Ehh, theres only like 4 songs above 100 that i enjoy playing. Im not as good as yall think. Everything else is way past my ability and playing them for a tourny wouldnt be a good idea. I doubt any of them would be picked either cuz they are in the 100-103 range. but i hope you guys enjoy it as the idea seems really interesting :)

@devonin will all future blitz tourneys be the same style where you play a division higher in difficulty, or will there be other types as well, like rate tourneys and stuff like that?

Rate scores don't record, so a tourney with rates would involve screenshots and manual score submission, so they might get done by somebody less lazy than I, but I have no intention of it.

The difficulty thing, to me, is intrinsic to the point of doing it in this format. If the songs were predominantly AAA-able, people will have maxed out the score in the first couple days. My hope for the tournament is to keep people going the whole 2 weeks trying to improve their scores enough to keep competitive.

Of course, once Velo gets all the kinks ironed out for the format and it's just a checkbox to be a blitz tourney or not, anybody else who can run tourneys can use the system to make it a blitz tourney, so why not expect all kinds of things!

Sure, you'll need to PM me the name of the D3 account, and also agree that the D3 account is not eligible for prizes, since there's no way to enforce that you play every song solely 1-handed.

tosh 01-17-2019 11:58 AM

Re: New Tournament Format - Blitz Tourney
 
Really like the idea of this (along with the non-AAA'able difficulties). Would join but unfortunately I have a business trip in the middle of the tournament.

Sounds like a cool idea tbh.

Re: New Tournament Format - Blitz Tourney
 
Velo accidentally leaked my whole song list, now I'll have to do it again!



Okay, there we go. New songs picked. Just to give you a concrete idea of what "hard songs" means, here's the range for each division

Code:

D1        0 - 25 Songs 37-48
D2        26 - 49 Songs 55-62
D3        50 - 58 Songs 64-70
D4        59 - 68 Songs 75-80
D5        69 - 82 Songs 86-92
D6        83 - 95 Songs 96-100
D7        96+        Songs 103-110

With your consideration and approval I could actually make videos ensuring I am actually using one hand on this account, if not it's all good, I'd still like to play just for the fun of it! But this is definitely the account, all my recorded scores on this account are with one hand 😃

devonin 01-17-2019 06:39 PM

Re: New Tournament Format - Blitz Tourney
 
Like I said, you can definitely register and play with this account, but I think as a general policy "People also playing on lower-division alts" need to be prize-exempt just to avoid any potential issues.

icontrolyourworld 01-17-2019 06:42 PM

i understand, i'm cool with that :) i'll join for the sport of it (on icyworld1hand), wouldn't want to start any controversy!

Etude is by far the hardest, at least Maniera is manageable. I'm more worried about some of the easier songs where I'm not so good at.
