Default 16th Official Tournament


Welcome to the 16th Official Tournament!

Most of this post is copied over from the 15th official because the rules are the same, mechanics are the same.

Please read carefully.

I. HOW TO SIGN UP
To be eligible for participation, you must have at least 250 FFR games played, with 75 unique songs FULLY played.

Alternatively, if you often play a rhythm game other than FFR (eg. osu!mania, Etterna, Quaver, etc.), you must provide links to your profile(s) in that game so we can accurately place you in a division. Not providing this information may result in disqualification.

If you meet at least one of the above requirements,
SIGN UP AT THIS LINK HERE: http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/...ent/signup.php

Signups are open until June 25th, 11:59PM 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 June 30th at 12:00 AM server time. The tournament is eight rounds long, with each round lasting one week.

Format
There will be seven or eight divisions in this tournament, depending on sign ups. Upon registration in the tournament, you will be placed in a division based on your overall skill and accomplishments in the game. You can not sign up for a particular division – your division placement will be handled internally. There is no limit to the number of participants in this tournament, or the number of competitors within a given division.

The tournament is eight rounds long, with each round lasting one week. Every division will receive a new, previously unreleased song/chart to compete on every round.

This is a simple elimination tournament. Those that achieve the best scores on their assigned song/chart in each division in each round will advance to the next round.

Competitors will be eliminated according to this pattern:
x-x-x-x-8-5-3-1
Where each new step represents how many competitors will advance to the next round. How many competitors are eliminated each round is dependent on the number of signups. You will find the final pattern for each division on the tournament dashboard.

Tiebreaker Procedure
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. Best score(s) on the tiebreaker song/chart after 24 hours will advance.


Recording Scores
Scores will be automatically recorded to the tournament dashboard LOCATED HERE. This is a real-time tool that displays scores which each competitor has obtained during the current and previous rounds. 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.

Click this spoiler to see the Tournament Dashboard Color Legend.

Green means you have obtained a perfect score (AAA) for the round
Beige / grey / background color(dark mode) means that you are currently safe
Yellow means you are in danger of elimination
Purple / Squidward Indicates a potential tie breaker situation
Red means that you were eliminated in a previous round.
Your user name will be highlighted in Bold if you view the dashboard while logged in.




III. TOURNAMENT RULES
In order to be eligible for participation, we highly recommend having at least 250 games played, with 75 unique songs FULLY played.
If you do not meet this requirement, one of two cases applies:
-If you often play another rhythm game, (eg. osu!mania, Etterna, Quaver, etc.), you must provide links to your profile(s) in that game when you sign up so we can accurately place you in a division.
-You may be removed from the participant list
Please ensure that you meet these requirements before clicking the signup button! If you do not, consider sending a Direct Message to Velocity ahead of time to expedite the process of division placement.

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, depending on the division’s size.

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

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 this is an elimination tournament.

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, we 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 or the FFR Discord. Instead, send a private message to Velocity via FFR or on Discord. We will do our best to respond to everyone. 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 Velocity 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 Velocity, 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, we 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 Velocity a Discord message or a FFR Direct Message and we will resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Q: Will there be preview streams?
Yes! You'll be able to find us live on Thursday evenings each week on https://www.twitch.tv/officialffr 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!
