I can read, just making sure he got them since I've been given no confirmation that they've been received.

Update:
-Donations are updated at this time in the OP! My apologies for not updating them sooner. At this point, we are up to almost 1.75 million credits, $80 in Steam gift cards, 14 boxes of ramen (and we'll be looking into getting some tokens soon as well!)

-I'm combing through the thread to address any concerns and to respond to things that were in the thread that I haven't gotten to. I'll be doing this one page at a time (using the standard 20 posts per page).

No worries, I know I had that problem myself sometimes when I would participate in a tourney. Hopefully the tourney prizes are somewhat of a motivator :P Also, if all else fails, I would recommend trying to at least submit a "placeholder" score in the beginning of every round so that way you don't fall too far behind and so that you can at least get some participation prizes at the end :)

It seems that DaShoe is stupidly good at jacks (relative to the rest of his skill set). His jacking ability is definitely D5 material it seems but everything else seems to be high-D4 at best. However, it might be the case that the way the leaderboards work and the division lines that I have in my head don't coincide perfectly.

I'll be last in D5 but let see what happens.

One thing I will say it that for almost all circumstances, your placement will be determined by your "peak" skill and not current skill. The main reason for this is that people tend to regain their skill a lot more quickly than they believe they will sometimes. So it's not fair for me to place people in lower divisions only for them to regain their skill in a week or two's time and then obliterate everyone in their division.

Edit: And when i came back i literally was like D2 at first, couldnt hit shit.

Great example :)

I just want an excuse to play more ffr tho hahaha

It seems every tournament over the past however many years is a "the tournament where half of the participants are trying to derust". Don't worry, I think a lot of us have been there.

FFR goofs me up. I remember I started playing for the first time weeks ago and my eyes started hurting from looking at it, and I don't think that's ever happened to me before. Stepmania doesn't burn my eyes as bad. I'm still bad regardless and need some practice. And eye drops.

Not sure if I can help much, but you can always try playing around with the visual settings in FFR (noteskin, spacing, window size, etc). I tend to have the opposite problem where I still can't play SM for the life of me.

Unless someone steps 2 files whose total length is a week. Please don't make this happen, FFR

Yeah, and it seems a lot of people are peeps who've had accounts for awhile but haven't had the chance to get involved in the community yet. I'm glad to have everyone on board :) Also, we also have Rapta to thank...I know he's been doing a bunch of word in regards to trying to get the word out on this tournament :)

I don't want to jinx anything, but usually there are at least a few people in each division that end up not submitting. So as long as you participate, you're almost guaranteed not to get last!

It's the closest thing to a trophy :P (I don't know how long such a trophy would last though...)

also yeah, im probably gonna blow ass since im working all the time. we ll see if i can pump out some good scores or break some records.

I feel ya. I can provide extensions if needed (as long as they are in advance). I know the first few rounds will coincide with some people's finals so I might make some general extensions as well for that. I put more info regarding that in the OP.

I'd join if I weren't so busy :(((((

qrrbrbirbel, the person donating the ramen, made a post about this (post #75). Essentially, he'll get into contact with you to get your shipping details and will take into account the shipping fees as well.

I know you made a post after this, but I can put you in as ghosting a division (i.e. you'd only be eligible for participation prizes). Just let me know which division you'd like to ghost.

Alts or legit newbies ?

*thinks*

Edit: that's why you require people to have been on the site for x months and played y games before joining a tourney xd

Of the people currently on the participant list, there were only two whose account length was questionable. I'll be doing what I can and working with staff to sniff out potential alts.

Like I said earlier, although many people have joined that have very low post counts, some of the account lengths are rather significant (with the exception of just 2 accounts being questionably short).

Go ahead and count me in if I get around to posting a score I guess.

You got it! I hope you can derust quick!

I put up some requirements in the OP recently. The requirements are looser than what you've suggested, but it's something. I don't want to discourage new users too much from participating by asking them to play 5000 games all at once.

For the most part, you will continue to play songs in your originally assigned division. There are some exceptions, for example, if we suspect someone of intentionally sandbagging (i.e. hiding their "true" skill so as to be placed in a lower division than they ought to be in). Also, I might alter division placements from now until the start of the tournament. At worst, barring any exceptional circumstances, divisions will definitely be finalized by the end of round 1.

It seems that tournaments is where a lot of people push themselves and stuff, allowing them to get a skillboost. A six week tournament such as this one is a long time for someone to improve if they play regularly throughout.

That is the one thing I do like about FFR tournaments. The several divisions (7 in this case) allow tournaments to be accessible to a wider range of the community.
