14th Official Tournament
 
Welcome to the 14th Official Tournament!

Most of this post is copied over from the 13th official because the rules are the same, mechanics are the same.

Please read carefully.

I. HOW TO SIGN UP
CLICK THIS LINK HERE: http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/...ent/signup.php

Signups are open until July 1st, 10:59pm SERVER TIME.

Your name will not show up on the dashboard until you are placed into a division, so please do not worry if you don't see it right away. We'll let everyone know when we have everyone placed.

II. TOURNAMENT OVERVIEW/INFORMATION
This tournament is scheduled to start on July 6th at 11:00 PM server time.

There will be eight divisions in this tournament – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, Master, Guru, Legend, and Godly. These divisions are typically addressed by their numerical order, with D1 being Beginner, and D8 being Godly. Upon registration of the tournament, you will be placed in a list with all other players that have signed up to the tournament, and will be placed accordingly based off of your overall skill and accomplishments in regards to the game. You will not be signing up for a particular division – your division placement will be handled internally. Keep in mind, there is not a limit to the number of participants in this tournament, or the number of competitors within a given division. However, large divisions will see larger people cut in earlier rounds.

Scores will be automatically recorded to the tournament dashboard
LOCATED HERE. This is a real-time tool that displays scores which opponents have obtained during the current and previous rounds, and it is color coordinated according to your status in the round (and in the tournament). All scores listed in the dashboard are based on unadjusted (raw) scoring.

Green means you have obtained a perfect score for the round, beige/grey means that you are currently safe, yellow means you are in danger of elimination, and red means that you were eliminated in a previous round.

On the main screen of the dashboard, you will see numbers like this:

-8-5-3-1

...these numbers indicate the number people advancing to the next round. If there are ties in scores, the dashboard will report everyone with the same score as safe, even if it causes the round to have more people advance than expected.


III. TOURNAMENT RULES
In order to be eligible for participation, your account must have 800 games played, with 200 unique songs FULLY played. If you do not meet this requirement, your name will be removed from the participant list, and you will not receive a division placement. Please ensure that you meet these requirements before clicking the signup button!

This tournament will be eight rounds long, with each round lasting a week. Every division will receive their own song, every round, and there will be a specified number of people advancing to each round, dependent on the division’s size. If ties happen in such a way where more competitors advance than are specified for the given round, one of two situations will occur:

- if the tie occurs before a prize round, all people involved in a tie will advance.
- If the tie occurs during a round where advancing means you receive a prize, a tiebreaker will be played. Tiebreakers last 24 hours.

If you do not submit a positive score above 0 by the end of the round, you will be eliminated. Late scores will NOT be accepted under any circumstances, because it is an elimination tournament.

If for any reason a score does not record, take a screenshot AND save a replay after you have restored connectivity. That way, I can definitively verify that you did obtain that score. I will not be adding scores without this form of proof.

It goes without saying:
CHEATING IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. Anyone caught cheating in this tournament will receive a minimum punishment of forum banishment, and will be considered for more severe punishment. As mentioned in the FFR forum rules, using a bot or trainer is grounds for score removal, and other implicit methods of score boosting like account sharing will result in further reprimand. Do not try to circumvent rules with loopholes. You may not use an alternate account in an effort to be put in a lower division. Chances are, if it’s questionable, it shouldn’t be done. In addition to this -- if you have cheated in previous tournaments, I reserve the right to deny your entry in the tournament. Decisions are final, and if you are told that you are not allowed to enter, you are NOT allowed to enter.

Be respectful to everyone involved in the tournament! Arguments with tournament staff or with other users will not be tolerated. Use this time to have a good time with other competitors, and bond in the spirit of competition.

If you happen to have any issues with placements, do not post them in any threads. Instead, send a private message to me via FFR, or send me a message on Discord at Azlynn #4286 I will do my best to respond to everyone in regards to everything. Continual disregard of this rule will result in removal from the tournament.

IV. Prizes

If anyone is interested in donating prizes, you are more than welcome to do so (as it has occurred in the past). However, prizes need to be confirmed by me before being listed on the OP as an official prize, as it needs to be ensured that they are received. If you opt into providing a prize, confirm with me, and do not deliver, you will be severely reprimanded.

V. Tournament FAQ
Q: How do I sign up for this tournament?
A: Go to the sign-up page and click the large button on this page:
http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/...ent/signup.php

Q: How are scores submitted?
A: Scores are submitted automatically to the tournament dashboard. If you want to see how you are doing in regards to your other competitors, click this link:
http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/tournament

Q: What division am I in?
A: You can see what division you are listed in by checking the tournament dashboard. If you do not see your name in a division but do see your name in the participants list, it is because placements are not up yet. Be patient – placements won’t be finished until just before the start of the tournament.

Q: I’ve degraded in skill – can I be in a lower division?
A: Unfortunately, you will not be placed off of your current skill, but rather the skill that is reflected in your level ranks (public and token). Gauging current skill is incredibly risky and can ruin the overall tournament experience, especially if someone improves unexpectedly due to being placed in a lower division for skill degradation. Do your best – each round is a week long, and you can accomplish a lot in that week if you try.

Q: Can you release the songs for the next round early?
A: No, I cannot. Because this is an elimination tournament, everyone needs to have the same time allotment for each round.

Q: When will I receive my prizes?
A: Credit, token, and profile prizes will be handed out at the end of the tournament. If you were supposed to receive a prize and have not, send me a Discord message or a FFR PM and I will resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Q: Will there be preview streams?
Yes! You'll be able to find us live on Sunday (except for the first round, which will be on Monday the 5th) each week on https://www.twitch.tv/TheOfficialFFR with previews for the rounds. I will of course save the video for those who cannot make it during the live time.

Good luck everyone!

So regarding my division placement in OT 14.

Im currently right on the line between division 5 and 6 and im wanting to compete in division 5 to have a chance at earning some token charts- but i dont want to have to avoid playing and sandbagging my rank to do so. Could this be taken into consideration if i happen to move into division 6 between now and the start of the tournament? Or am i forced to just not submit scores until then?

Tbh, this is kinda just as bad as actual sandbagging. You've got some pretty good scores very recently so just continue to play and improve like you've been doing, that's about all anybody is able to do.

Re: 14th Official Tournament
 
tbh my first time in D6 i didn't expect to even make it to round 3. ended up just outside of top 8. you never know what's gonna happen til the tourney starts, just do your best o/

however i'm also a bucket of rust so nowadays i'm just happy to make it past round 1 LOL

don't count other players out as well. The official has been known to push loads of people past where they currently are. However I never skill boosted during a single tourney lolol

I don't feel i've counted anyone out- I just feel ill be able to compete better in division 5 than 6. Its kind of a slap in the face to work my butt off to improve just to end up at the bottom of the next division at the start of OT14 and get my butt kicked when as it stands im riding the line between the 2 divisions. One good score would push me over that line and I don't want to ruin my shot at having a good tournament over it.

I'd appreciate it if a tournament organizer could weigh in on this

Re: 14th Official Tournament
 
Everyone has their own motives and I certainly don't intend to downplay your desire to enjoy your experience in the OT, but from my perspective as someone on the fence between 6 and 7, I've been using this time to try and push myself as much further as I can in case I do get place into the higher division. It may feel rewarding to be a finalist in the lower of the two divisions, but in my opinion it would be more rewarding to have the hard work pay off by having the privilege to compete with people in the higher skill bracket.

And, as PhantomPuppy said, you may surprise yourself with your performance if you do get placed into D6. You're certianly a strong player in some areas and you show alot of potential, so either way I think people will be impressed by your performance.

What this conversation usually boils down to is people wanting to unlock event token songs, and I can personally guarantee that I'm gonna run a buttload of them so that you and everyone else that is concerned in this regard will be able to ^_^

We have also been talking about rewarding Division Advancement in a similar fashion to help encourage personal improvement over prize seeking :D


Hope this helps!

If you're on the line odds are you'd be bumped anyway. That said, nobody here knows the line anyway because the skill rating system is not how we place people for the tournament. I don't like the current way it's set up and haven't since its release.

psychoangel691 06-13-2021 08:12 PM

Re: 14th Official Tournament
 
Also purposely holding back scores when you know you'd be moved up is cheating and will be dealt with as such.

So you acknowledge the flaw in the system in place, yet offer nothing in terms of a viable course of action other than just dealing with a butt whooping in a higher division and then go on to say it'd be cheating on my part to try and avoid that?

I mean no disrespect, but I'm just trying to unlock charts and have a good time- the only way to do so is by doing well in tournaments (at least for the unlock charts anyway). I feel as though I'm being punished by an unlucky circumstance while the game itself is actively incentivizing me to do what you're telling me not to by the way the unlocks are designed.

Surely you can understand where my frustration is coming from here?

EDIT: I can also understand your desire to keep the divisions in the tournament fair, but what about my situation is fair to me in this circumstance?

The game isn't designed to give you the tokens. I might have a token from an official, but I never improved. When I was actively playing I was pretty stagnant and would have rather had to deal with an untimely skill boost than being in the same division year after year.


3 of your top 5 scores were obtained this week... You are skill boosting. That is your reward. It wouldn't be fair to the lower division you'd place in to keep you where you don't belong. You are looking at it pretty selfishly.

and for this it is already accounted for in the increase in prize amounts from division to division... I know I won't make it like 3 rounds, but I'm also borderline looking at my rank. So if I could just ask to be D6 because of my rank and get something cute rather than push myself to get back to where I was and better... then I would probably just move up and get my little gift and stop playing.

Re: 14th Official Tournament
 
Tokens/bragging rights are a nice bonus, but the tournament is just a push to grind stuff that you may not generally want to play and hopefully you improve over the course of it from the grind.
Apparently I have two tokens, which are just two more files that I don't play. Skill boosting was way cooler and felt way better than my results.

Raising your ceiling is hard.

*cough* uh I literally just said that I don't use said system so.....
It is cheating and it's literally against our rules for you to do what you're saying you're going to. You'd end up bumped up in the tournament, or removed from it entirely. You do realize that there's going to be people at the bottom of a division no matter what right? It's a competition, we probably shouldn't have divisions and it just be a battle of the best of a best like most games. I can't believe I literally have to say this every year. We're one of the only games that gives an opportunity for people of all skill levels to have a chance.

Then this isn't the tournament for you. This is our major tournament for the year. We're strict on our rules for it. You can unlock any of the event tokens in any other event run on the site. The only things you cannot get are the V0 token and the tokens for D7/D8.

I've been the scraped barely into D5 person for like idk how many years now. I couldn't compete at my peak and I surely cannot compete now as my skill has dropped to a D3 level. It sucks, but I also know this is a competition and is meant to be as such.


tldr: This is a TOURNAMENT, it's not meant to be easy. If you want to win prizes you need to fight for them. I'll also warn you now because you are fully aware of it being cheating if you're caught doing so still the punishment will likely be more severe then a bump up in the tournament or just removal.

What's funny is based on looking at your stuff and looking at where my cutoffs are you'd likely have been D5 anyway. But you want to give up before it's even begun. *shrugs* removing as requested.

It would have been fun to compete with lights as well since they are a similar skill to me at my best it probably would have pushed me more. Let’s see who is be at the top of D5 to push us now

At this point its a matter of principle. I dont feel like being under your microscope so you can arbitrarily decide if im sandbagging or not, ill play the game on my terms and enter a tournament later if i wish. Moreover, you could have made that clear prior to this point, but it doesn't seem like you were trying to assure me a fair bracket and/or provide support as much as you were trying to lay down the law. Shouldn't be any mystery as to why I'm no longer interested in playing.

@kmay feel free to play multi with me sometime. shoot me a message of discord if and when you'd want to do so.

Nothing here has been arbitrary. Placements are not even out yet so there's not much use in complaining about them yet, and if you really cared, you would've listened to the several people at this point that responded to you about the situation. Making psycho out to be the bad guy here isn't a good move.

Re: 14th Official Tournament
 
I'm used to being the bad guy, it's fine. I am the one to "lay down the law" as you'd like to put it. You very clearly were speaking selfishly and speaking about cheating in our biggest event of the year. I don't have tolerance for that. Had you come to me privately and expressed concern that wasn't centralized around "well I don't wanna try I just want prizes" it would have been a much different response.
