You`ll know by noon tomorrow. Promise.

Xtreme Nights did brackets for the guitar tourney. I find it easier to keep track doing it this way, but that`s something I can revisit for future tournaments.

Deadline has now passed - thanks to all who submitted scores.

Well, if you're going to do something like this, at least you're doing it during the biggest sale period in RB history.

Gonna take a pass on the new song and continue picking up pre-RB3 dlc.

bWo Found in: DLCQP Drums Tournament: Elimination Round 1
Hello everyone,

Of the 50 players entered, 33 submitted scores in the qualification round. Two players informed me they were dropping out of the tournament, so 15 scores were not received.

As promised, the top 32 scores will advance to the Championship Division. The Consolation Division will no longer be required.

Here are the matchups for the opening round in the Championship Division (seedings in parentheses):

(1) llamajobuddy vs. (32) Kranem
(2) Chichoxo vs. (31) Wooden Glory
(3) Josch22 vs. (30) Tim 13
(4) That Drunk Guy vs. (29) BonScott46to80
(5) redskinsrock2689 vs. (28) MagicMurderBag7
(6) himama123 vs. (27) Xtreme Nights
(7) Sycocoaster vs. (26) Styrofoam Tuph
(8) troad86 vs. (25) Yak
(9) slowtoad vs. (24) DoofiestDoofz
(10) Saint Harri vs. (23) AceEmX2
(11) Roskagib vs. (22) PuppetmasterIX
(12) jacobtheboffin x vs. (21) iLimboBimbo
(13) Ring0oodu74 vs. (20) silverrat123
(14) Jack123456 vs. (19) rageer
(15) Zenzuki vs. (18) SLAAAAAAYER
(16) Daddio54 vs. (17) luci_twiggy

*** Scores from the qualification round will follow in the next post.


Guidelines for the remainder of the tournament are as follows:


-- You and your opponent pick one song each from the dlc you have in common. There are no restrictions as far as difficulty rating or length of song go. If you have no common dlc, play a disc song.

-- Choose different songs than the ones you used in the qualification round. As well, for those who advance, you will have to pick different songs in subsequent rounds.

-- These will be two-song, total-score battles. The winner is the player with the highest score when totals from both songs are added up. In case of a tie, I will pick a tiebreaker song of difficulty rating 5 or 5+ from your common dlc (or, again, a disc song if there's no common dlc) to play. You will have 24 hours to submit a score for the tiebreaker song.

-- Please try and get in touch with your opponent as soon as possible so you can pick your songs. The sooner you pick, the sooner you can play. There are links to each player's dlcquickplay page at the point where they entered in the sign-up thread so you can look at their dlc content as well as send a message. If you are having trouble getting in touch with your opponent, please let me know. As long as you submit a song selection, even if your opponent doesn't, you will advance.

-- Once you and your opponent have chosen your songs, send me a private message with your setlist so I know what to expect when you submit your scores.

-- Continue to send me scores via private message with a photo of your score at the end of the song (not your leaderboard rank) as proof. Continue to ensure your gamertag can be seen in the photo to confirm your identity.

-- As a reward for doing well in the qualification round, players keep their seeding as they advance through the elimination round. For example, if the 32 seed beats the 1 seed but the 2 seed beats the 31 seed, in the next round, 2 would play 32, then the next-highest seed plays the next-lowest and so forth.

Deadline to complete this round is Sunday, September 23 at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time.

And, finally, a word to Dr. Sardonicus:

You have my apologies for not having anyone else to play in what would have been the Consolation Division. I am more than willing to honour my commitment to award the prize, as outlined when the sign-up started, to you.

Any questions/concerns, let me know.

Good luck!

I have a pretty good handle on the scores received so far, so I should have results up Monday, September 17 by noon Eastern Daylight Time, just so everyone can get started a little bit earlier.

Appreciate the feedback, Alternity.

There's always a better way of doing things, I suppose. This is my first time hosting a tournament and I wanted to see how this approach would work. I'm not opposed to tweaking the format for future tournaments.

I'm not a big fan of legislating what songs people have to play, which is a big reason why this format is the way it is. My philosophy is to leave the song selections in the hands of those who actually have to play them. If you have spent the effort and the money putting together a robust compilation of downloadable content, I believe that shouldn't be considered a disadvantage.

The qualification round merely serves as a way to give some justification to how the elimination round matchups are put together, rather than randomly choosing matchups based on an entry list alone. It's not the be-all and end-all way to decide a winner - that will still be determined once players commence head-to-head battles.

To reiterate, there are some limitations in song choices (the tiers and time limit guidelines) to try and keep the playing field as level as possible. Based on feedback, that could be something that could be revisited going forward.

9/14/12 10:09 AM
bWo Found in: DLCQP Drums Tournament: Qualification Round
Your scores from the three songs will be added up for a total score. That determines your ranking.

For example, say you score 200,000 points on the 5 or 5+ song, 100,000 points on the 3-4 song, and 50,000 points on the 0-2 song.

Your total score is 350,000.

I add up your scores from each song you submit, then rank your total scores. Top 32 to the Championship Divison, next 16 to the Consolation Division. Bottom two do not advance.

Or if some people choose not to submit scores, top 32 to Championship Division, rest to Consolation Division.

No worries - figured there'd be some questions. There's a learning curve for everyone involved, especially me as a host.

At least there's feedback, which means people are showing some level of interest.
9/10/12 10:11 PM
bWo Found in: DLCQP Drums Tournament: Qualification Round
Remember, all this round is about is qualifying. It really doesn't matter if you're first or 32nd as long as you're in the top 32 - assuming the points card is what you're after. Only two people out of 50 will not advance.

It all depends on your motivation, I suppose. If you want the points card (which I assume most do), then fine, pick the longest songs you can. If you don't play drums as much as other people in this competition, or aren't interested in the points card, that's fine, too.

The rationale behind keeping the songs at six minutes or less - as well as the different difficulty levels - is so that those who can fc the really long songs don't dominate the competition. If you're really good at a really long song, fine, you can play that once we get into head-to-head battles provided your opponent has it.

I wouldn't want anyone to think they have no chance at competing for something. The goal is to encourage as many people to participate as possible. Doing a qualification round will hopefully maintain a balance between those who want to be really competitive and those entering who might not care about winning as much, but are still curious to see how far they might get.

Legislating what songs people should have to play is something I'm not all that in favour of. As long as you understand the guidelines, pick whatever song you want. Obviously, those with a lot of dlc will have an advantage, but I have no control over how many songs people have and the fact that you've got a lot of songs to choose from shouldn't be something to be held against you.
