Updated up to here.

Updates: I have successfully created a Google sheets document that pulls in all eligible participant's Top 100 Scores in using Python. I will be publishing this once the tournament begins! Currently, it takes ~10 minutes to create the Google Sheets but I can spend some more time to decrease this time.

Unfortunately, you don't have enough games played. Please read eligibility requirements and try again next time!

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?

Yes, RadiantVibe is correct that the snapshot is taken before the tournament and is used throughout its duration. The reason why I decided against taking a new snapshot after each round is due to the possible case that someone can possible play a rank 85, improve it to 65. Then play the same song again, to improve it to 45 a week after, etc. Pretty 5Head strategy if you ask me, but I mainly want to encourage song variety per round and less opportunities to cheat by taking advantage of the gaps I might have missed in creating this tournament.

It honestly already worries me that new players I haven't heard of at all are interested in signing up haha (it's also a good thing since I encourage new players to join!). It's possible that they might be "smurfing" to take advantage of the prize pool and the cash prizes, but I will keep an active eye out for cheaters in the tournament. I would ask everyone else to report anything that I missed to me so we ca minimize cheating and maintain fairness throughout the tournament! Thanks everyone!

Thanks man! :) Appreciate it!



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



I checked iironiic and didn't see your credit donations. WirryWoo can't accept any credits unfortunately. Kind thanks in advance though! :)

Sorry i took so long!

Yeah just second place is fine, I definitely misunderstood the concept a bit lol

I understand now tho!

Re: 1st Unofficial FFR Self-Improvement Tournament
 
Participant list updated to here. Total of 65 players and counting!! (:

Less than a week left to sign up for the tournament!

The spreadsheet will be publicized in the second post of this thread during start of first round (will replace participant list).

Also, credit pool finally broke 1.7 million!! This means all current participants are expected to earn an average of ~25,000 credits (assuming everyone submits a score per round).

Thank you too all of the donators for being so kind to selflessly contribute to the experience of the tournament. (:

Signups are closed now.

Round 1 begins now! I will be accepting any scores for Round 1 now.

Spreadsheet generation is almost complete. It will contain a list of songs each player can submit for the allotted week.

Participant list will be updated with the link to the spreadsheet once the building is complete. For now, please reference your songs ranked 81 to 100 in your Top 100 scores.

It's encouraged that you submit any score, even if you can't improve them. The only thing a negative score does is reward you less credits at the end of the tournament compared to those that were able to improve their scores. If I designed my credit awarding system correctly, you shouldn't be earning pennies in comparison to the top winners.

The goal is mainly to give more motivation for others to improve their top scores :)

Re: 1st Unofficial FFR Self-Improvement Tournament
 
Edit: My largest improvement was Molto Vivace (+1160), but I want to use this instead. Regardless of being a bad file, I don't think I put any effort into my previous best at that song.


WirryWoo 10-12-2020 03:24 AM

Re: 1st Unofficial FFR Self-Improvement Tournament
 
Sick improvements guys! I will update scores later when there are most posted scores.

Here's my placeholder improvement :) Previous best was 5-0-1-0.



@jh05013, you should use your Molto Vivace score!

Scoreboard updated to here with my CCCP slight improvement. Going to try and aim for the SDG this round.



@Riotpolice, @badman7772:, nice improvements but some of the scores you posted are not eligible for Round 1. Double check with the dashboard to make sure you are playing the right songs. I recorded the ones that are only eligible for this round.

The score won't count for Round 1 and 2. You'll have to get the same score during Round 2 for that score to count for that song. You cannot save that score for Round 2 submission as well.

Your Round 2 songs scores will not change based on receiving this new score in Round 1. Despite all the changes happening while we all improve, everyone's song options and target scores to beat are constant throughout the duration of the tournament (which is shown in the dashboard).

130 on this. Kinda fitting too considering the stepartist is our dear host.

Updated dashboard to here.

Even though this score didn't improve my tournament result, I'm saddened to say that 3-0-2-0 were from the left hand single jacks and the last good was from the last note in the left hand jumpjacks. At least it's AAA'able.
