Default The Novice/Intermediate/Advanced Rivalry [2015]

Greetings fellow FFR players!
~~~~
~/l、~~~
~(゚、 。 7~~

~ じしf_, )ノ~

Welcome to the NIA Rivalry Thread

This is a D1/D2/D3 Rivalry Thread and Skype Group

Do you want to ...

have fun? meet new people? find a rival? smash some keys? get dem gainz? increase activity?

If you answered "yes" to 1 or more of these,
Join The Rivalry Today!


Sign-Ups remain Open as long as this thread is active



Joining this rivalry is as simple as posting an "I'd like to join" message in this thread, or private message through FFR to THIS link only.
Once (at least) 2 rivalry staff have determined your division, you will be added to the rivalry and get your own row in the spreadsheet!

*Add me* on skype to join the skype group. (Remember to include your FFR name in your message.)

***Applications on behalf of another player will not be accepted, so please post using the account you wish to join the rivalry with. [no alts]***
Alts are already against site rules... if you're D4+, talk to CarrotCake94 about skill handicaps.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rivalry Rules, Information, and Score Submission

Rules:

>>> SITEWIDE RULES <<<

To keep things safe and simple, we keep certain FFR site-wide rules within the Skype group as well.
The Skype Group is mainly a means for convenient communication and random chit-chat. Please be respectful.

If you do any of these things, you will be kicked from the Skype group for a certain amount of time.
Depending on how serious the infraction is, the time you are banned will be determined by the rivalry staff member.

*quoting and posting someone else's comment that caused the infraction will also gain you an infraction of your own.*

As a Rivalry member, it is your responsibility to check this thread or rivalry spreadsheet if you intend to participate in the weekly event.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score Submission:
~ Submit a passing score
~ Submit NEW scores only! Old scores will not count.
~ We judge by Raw Scores! (not combo scoring) so send us the better raw score
~ If you improve your score, feel free to send in another one
~ Don't submit scores with rates. If a song is really long and you feel that rates will help, NO! Don't do it... just don't...
~ Scores are to be posted into this thread, or to be private messaged through FFR from THIS link only.

If you fail to follow these guidelines to submit the score properly, you score will not be recorded.


Once you play through a song and have reached the results screen, take a screenshot by...

R^3

right clicking > select 'Take ScreenShot - Imgur' > copy image link

Velocity/Legacy

Windows
Alt + PrtScn > paste to file sharing site > copy image link

Mac
Command + Shift + 4 > click and drag over the entire gaming window > check desktop for .png > upload to a convenient file sharing site > copy image link

...participate in the weekly challenges...http://imgur.com/a/0cP7H#4...acquire the official rivalry siggy...
Just message me after you've participated in at least 3 weekly events in the new thread, and I'll generate one for you :3



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Credits, Credit Donations and Sponsorship Opportunities

~ Credits are currently from accumulated credits from generous donations from the community and other event winnings.
(soon we're hoping to have credits supplied by FFR Events)
~ Send credits to 'FFR Rivalries' With a comment for what it's for. (i.e. NIA Rivalry!)
~ If a member of the community would like to sponsor the D1/D2/D3 Rivalry for a week, please pm CarrotCake94 for more information!
(Pick songs within certain difficulty ranges for us!)
~ Anyone that's D4 and up will not be receiving credits, since this rivalry is geared toward D1s, D2s and D3s.
~ If you'd like to contribute to a prize pool for the guests, feel free to mention that in a private message or a comment when sending credits.

Also, I was actually wondering this myself.

If I joined one-handed, I'd be D3. I would completely understand if playing on alternate styles was forbidden in our cases given that our actual skill levels are substantially higher than the D3 threshold and there's not exactly a way to reasonably verify authenticity.
