Default StepCon 2022

Welcome to the Official FFR StepCon.

What is a stepcon you might ask? It’s a simfile creating contest open to steppers of all skill levels and styles.
*all times listed are servertime*

The Second Public Voting Period has Ended!

Here's the results for the Final StepOff!


1st - Psychotik
2nd - M0nkeyz
3rd - DarkZtar

Congratulations to the top 3 in StepCon 2022, and massive thank you to those that participated in the event, Stepauthors and voters alike! This draws StepCon 2022 to a close, and will be getting extra rewards out shortly to those whom have earned them (including badges on profiles for winners).

@Psychotik, you will have an extra week before PYROMANIA's song release, and are welcome to submit any fixes you'd like via the batch system before the song's release on May 20th's 'Songs of the Week' Front Page Post.

The Second Public Voting Period has Begun!

During this time, all participants (including and especially people not participating in the event), can vote for songs submitted for the Final StepOff of StepCon 2022. No further submissions for the event will be accepted at this time. You can re-visit the Google Form link in the future to change your votes (until the end of the Public Voting period), and you can vote for multiple options across all Classes (Pick any & all that you like!).

You may fill out the form at https://forms.gle/yPeQHdAHd4wV66Z98 to submit your votes.

Please be advised, participants CANNOT vote for their own Class. Votes for that class will not count for said participants.

https://www.flashflashrevolution.com/batch_submission/engine/r3.stepcon2022.xml
If you navigate to your 'Options' in your FFR Engine, navigate to 'Miscellaneous' settings and click the drop-down for 'Engine Playlist', you should see this at the bottom of the list:



You will get this pop-up:



If you Copy the above XML URL and Paste it there, and click 'Add Engine', you should be able to view/play/observe songs from StepCon 2022. If you do not want to play the song, you may preview the song by right-clicking the song of choice in the song selection menu and selecting 'Play Chart Preview' in the right click menu.


Everyone will have until the end of Thursday, May 12th, 11:59PM SERVER TIME to complete voting and submit their forms at the above google link.

Furthermore, discussion is allowed in-thread during voting. But please do not deliberately attempt to sway votes/vote brigade particular submissions, and treat your fellow Stepauthors with respect. People of all skill levels participate within this event, and there is going to be good/bad matchups for people's skills and preferred genres. Keep it civil and respectful. There's also the #events channel in FFR's Official Discord for discussing the event as well!

The Second Stepping Period has Begun!

During this time, all participants will have received a Direct Message from me containing the Final StepOff song, and their Pre-built .sm File to begin Charting.

All participants will have until the end of Thursday, May 5th 11:59PM SERVER TIME to complete their submissions and submit it to the StepCon 2022 Batch located here.

There will be no trading of songs during Final StepOff, as everyone has the same song.

Class Exam: KURORAK - PYROMANIA
M0nkeyz
Psychotik
Gradiant
DarkZtar
trumaestro

Lots of ways to approach this, AND engage with a player audience on this song. All under a traditional, flawless converted 225bpm speed. How will you tackle it? Your fellow Classmates? It all comes down to this Final StepOff.
3 participants will be walking away with a profile badge (plus a hefty bonus of credits), and the winner will also have this song released to FFR.

Best of luck to the Finalists! To other participants, I will be sending out 2nd & 3rd place prizes, and participation prizes in a bit. The Second Judging Period will begin on May 6th.

The First Public Voting Period has Ended!

Here's the results for the First Round:

The First Stepping Period has Begun!

During this time, all participants will have received a Direct Message from me containing their Class, Song for Round 1, and their Pre-built .sm File to begin Charting. Also included, is a list of everyone else's assignments, and links to all songs currently active in this round. For the public, that list is available below in the spoiler.

All participants will have until the end of Thursday, April 14th Server Time to complete their submissions and submit it to the StepCon 2022 Batch located here.

Furthermore, if participants wish to change which song they would like to work on, you may now discuss/agree within this thread the exchanging of songs between participants. The deadline for this is the end of Thursday, April 7th Server Time.

PLEASE NOTE, that if you DO exchange songs, you MAY ONLY DO SO ONCE, FOR BOTH PARTICIPANTS. This is to avoid and curb any 'trading up' to songs that have more inherent value for stepping or putting economic values on songs.

Best of luck to all those involved in StepCon 2022! Looking forward to some of the patterns and choices that go into these submissions!

Event Breakdown / Rules / Prizes / Sign-up List
How it works (Event Breakdown):


Depending on how much interest/signups we get we'll split sign-ups into Classes. Each Class will be assigned a song with a pre-made .sm file set up for you. You will get two weeks to step and submit the song to FFR under the 'StepCon 2022' Batch. The batch will be made available at: https://www.flashflashrevolution.com...mission/batch/

We will be taking sign-ups from now until March 31st, 11:59pm. On April 1st, you will find out which Class you are in, and the song that your Class will be stepping will be available to download privately. Submissions must be submitted by 11:59pm April 14th, 2022.

After the deadline, submissions will be converted and anonymously uploaded to a private FFR Engine for the public to openly play/test/preview, and public voting will commence for each Class on their favorite Stepfile from each Class (A separate thread will be made to accommodate voting across all Classes for this event).

Public voting will last one week, and finish at 11:59pm, April 21st, 2022. At that point, winners of each Class will be announced. If there is a tie between two or more submissions within a Class, they will be judged and the higher scoring submission will win.

Winners of each Class will be invited to compete against one another in a 'Final StepOff', where winners will be placed into a single Class, and everyone will be provided the same song to step (in the same fashion as the previous round). The 'Final StepOff' will last two weeks, and end at 11:59pm, May 5th 2022.

Public voting will commence again for the Final StepOff on May 6th 2022 for one week and end at 11:59pm, May 12th 2022. At that time, StepCon 2022's Champion will be declared, marking the end of StepCon 2022.

Image guide of dates & times provided below for simpler browsing:


Red = Stepping Period, players may work on their submissions.
* = The final day of which players may swap Classes with another player (see: clarifications).
Yellow = Judging Period, public voting is available.
Purple = The end of the final Judging Period (for Final StepOff)


Some clarifications/rules:

-After sign-ups are finished, you will receive a Direct Message on FFR of which group you are in, along with a .zip file of everything you need to participate within your Class.
-After Direct Messages go out to all sign-ups (thread will be bumped with notification as such), you may swap Classes with another person in a different Class, but this can only be done ONCE between BOTH people involved, and may only happen within the first week (cutoff will be 11:59pm, April 8th 2022). If you are unable to obtain the original .zip provided for that Class after both people agreeing to a swap, contact me (gold stinger on FFR, Goldstinger#8592 on Discord).
-You ARE ALLOWED to make cuts and edits to any song during the StepCon.
-You MAY NOT collaborate with another Stepartist/Simfiler/sign-up/out-of-tournament individual.
-Submissions should meet Submission Rules requirements (listed here: https://www.flashflashrevolution.com...d.php?t=145458 )
-You ARE NOT allowed to solicit votes or reveal information regarding which submission is yours during the public voting process. Doing so will result in immediate disqualification and ban from future StepCon's.
-As a participant, you MAY NOT vote during public voting within your own Class. YOU MAY vote in any other Classes of which you are not directly participating in.
-Songs submitted to the 'StepCon 2022' Batch that are not part of this event will be automatically rejected. Please don't submit random songs to it. Spamming the batch may result in disciplinary action.

Added clarifications:
-Class placement is purely randomized. You will have a week to swap with another player (if willing) on the case RNG doesn't go your way, but notably this will not be an option for participants that reach the Final StepOff.
-All metadata, Simfile properties, and sync will be provided before-hand in the .sm file you receive during this event. You are more than welcome to change any of it to however you see fit, this is just to make the event more approachable for new Stepartists.
-Judges reserve the right to reject a winning file from going in-game due to incompleteness of a file in extreme situations (such-as, a joke dump file, only half of the file done and silence for the other half, 0/10-worthy files after judgment, etc.)


Final StepOff Prizes

First
Winning file for the class put into the game during the next song of the week release. (For a total of two songs going in-game)
150,000 credits (total of 250,000 credits)
Choice of 1 event token, including Strangeprogram v0 or vROFL. (1st Place StepOff Winner has an additional choice of these two songs if wanted)
Profile Badge for StepCon 2022: 1st Place

Second
100,000 credits (total of 200,000 credits)
Choice of 1 event token (total of 4 tokens, with 1 being vROFL or Strangeprogram v0)
Profile Badge for StepCon 2022: 2nd Place

Third
50,000 credits (total of 150,000 credits)
Profile Badge for StepCon 2022: 3rd Place


Prizes (each Class)

First
Winning file put into game during the next song of the week release.
100,000 credits
Choice of 3 event tokens, one of which can be Strangeprogram v0 or vROFL (limit 1 per winner).

Second
75,000 credits
Choice of 2 event tokens

Third
50,000 credits
Choice of 1 event token


*May add more prizes to Final StepOff in the future to spice up the prize pool for Final StepOff. Final StepOff prizes are added on top of Winner's prizes for each Class.

**At any time, event token winners may choose to either exchange a token for 20,000 credits, or provide the token unlock to any other individual, regardless of participation. Event tokens given away in this fashion that would allow for unlock of Strangeprogram v0 or vROFL, will not be allowed to unlock Strangeprogram v0 or vROFL.

You did not miss anything, there is not a list of songs yet. Songs will not be made available until after participants are assigned to one, and will be done completely randomized. Once the event begins, people that wish to trade songs that they are assigned to will be allowed for the first week of the event (you get two full weeks to complete your submission).

That being said, when the event begins, there will be a list in the OP & an update post showing everyone's songs, and where you can listen to each song online.
