bWo Found in: DLCQP Drums Tournament: Qualification Round
First, a couple reminders:

- Regular drums, not pro.
- Play solo and not with other band members.
- Submit scores with a photo of your score at the end of the song as proof (not a pic of your leaderboard rank) to me via private message.

To keep the playing field as level as possible in qualifying, here are the guidelines to follow for choosing your three songs to submit scores for in this round:

1. Do not pick songs that are longer than six minutes in duration (save your awesomeness on Rime of the Ancient Mariner or Free Bird for the elimination round).
2. One song must have a difficulty rating of 0-2.
3. One song must have a difficulty rating of 3-4.
4. One song must have a difficulty rating of 5 or 5+.

I will add up a total score for your three songs and that will be used to determine your seeding for the elimination round.

Ties will be broken using the following criteria (in order of importance):

1. Score on the song with a difficulty rating of 5 or 5+.
2. Score on the song with a difficulty rating of 3-4.
3. Score on the song with a difficulty rating of 0-2.

If players are still tied, I will select one tiebreaker song for you to play that is of 5 or 5+ difficulty (a common dlc song that all tied players have or a disc song in case there is no common dlc among tied players). You will have 24 hours to submit a score for the tiebreaker song. If you're still tied after that, we keep playing tiebreakers on 5 or 5+ songs every 24 hours until there is a winner (hopefully it won't come to that).

Deadline to submit scores for this round is Sunday, September 16 at 11:59 p.m., Eastern daylight time.

The top 32 scores from this round will compete in the Championship Division for the points card for a system of your choice (or a set of drumsticks if you're outside North America and can't use the points card; if the winner is in North America and wants the drumsticks instead, that's fine, too.).

*** Going to make a small change to the Consolation Division.

To avoid bye weeks for some players and as further incentive to put forward your best effort in this round, the Consolation Division will consist of the top 16 scores that don't make it to the Championship Division. With 50 entrants, that means two participants will not advance past the qualification round.

Those that make it to the Consolation Division will compete for the Classic Rock track pack for the system of your choice (or the drumsticks, same deal as the Championship Division).

I will need most of Monday, September 17 to compile scores. Results and matchups for the start of the elimination round will be posted Tuesday, September 18 no later than noon EDT.

Any questions/concerns, let me know.

Good luck!

Thanks to everyone who has signed up so far.

Given the number of entrants, it's safe to say we'll have a Championship Division and a Consolation Division.

The top 32 scores from the qualification round will advance to the Championship Division and play for the points card for a system of their choice.

Everyone else will be placed in the Consolation Division and compete for the Classic Rock track pack for the system of their choice.


Again, if you are from outside North America and can't use the points card or track pack, I'll ship out a pair of drumsticks to you if you win. If the winner is in North America, you can take the drumsticks instead of the points card/track pack.

The qualification round thread with the song selection guidelines will be posted Monday, September 10 no later than noon Eastern daylight time.

Thank you both for handling this situation.

I'm not opposed to having him enter future tournaments once he makes things right with the site admins here and can prove he is a responsible player.

Hi there!

Do you like ... stuff?

How about ... free stuff?

And do you drum?

Then welcome to the dlcquickplay.com drums tournament! Here's what you need to know:

1. Basics

Entrants must be registered on dlcquickplay.com and have a camera to show your results. This is a regular drums tournament only, no pro drums.

2. Sign up

Start a list by putting a number by your name and then your name. The next entrant will copy and paste the list with their name added on. Put your DLCQ name first and then your Gamertag name.

Registration will continue through Sunday, September 9 at 11:59 p.m., Eastern daylight time.

Responsible gamers only, please. Participants are on the honour system here. If you suspect someone is not playing honestly or someone entered has a shady gaming history, please send me your concerns and be able to back them up.

3. Qualification round

All entrants will start out by playing a qualification round. Each entrant will choose three songs from their dlc list.

There will be guidelines as to which songs you can choose - details to be posted once the sign up concludes.

Entrants will submit their scores to me via private message with a photo of their score at the end of the song (not their leaderboard score) as proof. Drummers will play in solo mode and not with other bandmates.

I will add up a total score for all three songs and that total score will be used to determine their seeding for the elimination round. Tiebreaker format details will be posted once the sign up concludes.

4. Elimination round

The elimination round will depend on the number of entrants. If enough people sign up, there will be a Championship Division and a Consolation Division. If not, there'll just be a Championship Division.

In the elimination round, each qualifier will pick one song from dlc that both qualifiers have (if neither player has dlc in common, they can play a disc song). The qualifier with the best total score (add up their scores from both songs) will advance. Again, scores will be sent to me via private message with a photo of their score at the end of the song (not their leaderboard score) as proof.

The elimination round format will be similar to the NCAA basketball championship or a Grand Slam tennis championship (i.e. Wimbledon). As a reward for doing well in the qualification round, players keep their seeding as they advance through the elimination round.

For example, say we have a 32-player Championship Division and 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 would play the next-lowest and so forth. If there happen to be an odd number of entrants in a division, the top seed will earn a bye in the first round.

5. Prizes

To the winner of the Championship Division: A 2000 Wii points card, 1400 Microsoft points card, or $20 Playstation Network card of your choice.

To the winner of the Consolation Division (if there is one): A Classic Rock track pack for the system of your choice.

OR

If the winner is from outside North America and can't use either the points cards or track packs, I'll swing by the local music store and pick up a pair of drumsticks and ship them out to ya. If the winner is from North America and wants the drumsticks instead, that's fine, too.

6. Timeline of events

Introduction and sign up - ends September 9 at 11:59 p.m., EDT

Qualification round - One week (Sept. 10-16 - Tuesday to Sunday, results posted Monday, Sept. 17)

Elimination round - Maximum of five weeks (start on a Tuesday, end on a Sunday, results posted Monday). Goal is to have the winner declared Monday, Oct. 22.

Any questions/concerns, let me know.

It's unfortunate I did not receive scores from both players, but it's not fair to penalize the player who submitted his results in good faith, so congratulations to RockerSVK, the winner of the dlcquickplay guitar tournament.

Contact Xtreme Nights for prize pickup details.

Thanks to all who participated, and special thanks to Xtreme and non_zero for their assistance.

The sign-up sheet for the next tournament will be posted no later than Monday, August 27. Get your drumsticks ready! :-)
