1. It will be run from Sunday to Saturday. This means that you will have one week to get your high score. The winners will be announced Sunday as early as possible and a new song will be picked. I will also post results on Sunday.

2. The screenshot that has your score must be of the screen after the song for me to accept it. It will have your score, stars, and % of notes hit.

3. You can compete in vocals, drums, or guitar. The score is the stat that matters. You can compete in medium, hard, or expert for each category. There are 9 categories in all, 1 for each instrument, each difficulty.

4. Once you win in one category, you cannot compete in it the the week after.Say you win drums medium in week 3. In week 4 you can do any other instrument on any difficulty, and drums on hard or expert. This applies for any instrument. Once you win on expert, you have to stay on expert until you lose. Thanks CJ14 for the grounds on this rule.

5. The pick a song. You can pick the next weeks song if you win an award for each instrument in the same week, no matter the difficulty.

6. Any suggestions or complaints you can PM me.

This is the trial run. Thanks to Birky for giving me the idea for the competition. I want to see how this goes. I may do other things like make a hard/expert star club, highest % hit award, etc. For the trial run, I will give you until Sunday the 6th. It's a short week to see hiow things go.

Song for week 1 is Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones.

I am also looking for a graphics guy/co-runner of this. Just PM me if interested.

This is the trial run. Thanks to Birky for lending me most of his rules. I want to see how this goes. I may do other things like make a hard/expert star club, highest % hit award, etc. For the trial run, I will give you until Sunday the 6th.


You mean you copied them word for word? You didn't even take the time to read them and see that Tibatron is mentioned as being the provider of graphics for me and then you say you need one. You should probably delete the part where I thank him. Also you might want to think up your own special little way of doing some other things, you really did copy and paste the entire thing (except number 5...). Also you started this on Wednesday... that totally contradicts rule number one...

EDIT: I may sound like a cranky bitch but I really am not. I just think you should try to make it a little original, scratch those rules, and make your own new rules. Maybe even have vocals and guitar for each song? I don't care, just try to make the contest original and unique.

I agree, i compete in GH3 SOTW and for one, i really think Rock Band NEEDS different rules as it is a completely different game. It is definately doable but more thought like Birky said. Get it all straightned out and i could do the graphics probably. I did weeks one two and three for GH3. However, thats a TON of badges every week.

I changed it and depending on how this goes, I'll change some stuff. Birky said in a PM I could use his rules to test anyways. Old WikiTiki, if you have photoshop I know an easy way to do it.

4. You can only compete in a different category the week after you win one. Say you win drums medium in week 3. In week 4 you can do any other instrument on any difficulty, and drums on medium or hard. This applies for any instrument. Once you win on expert, you have to stay on expert until you lose.
You can only compete in a different category the week after you win one? Can you phrase that better, because it sounds like once you choose an instrument you're stuck with it until you win.

Also, how can you play Drums on Medium two weeks in a row. The rules don't follow what they say.

And finally, if you can play any other instrument on any difficulty, that means you can go: Drums (Medium), then Guitar (Medium), then back to Drums (Medium)? That doesn't seem too fair. And where you say "Once you win on Expert, you stay on it" or whatever, that doesn't comply with the "any other instrument on any difficulty" sentence.


Sorry for attacking that rule, but you gotta clear it up.

hey, when my rules get copied from another competition I want credit for it!! Haha, at least Birky mentions me in the rules creation. If you are dedicated and will stick to the deadlines and such It'd be nice to have a Rock Band SOTW

Make it more original like for the whole band not just one instrument.

01-03-2008, 05:37 AM
playing rockband now eh CJ? If the whole band thing is done we need to be real specific how the difficulties are dealt with. Like scorehero it seems like you can enter whomever is on the highest diff. Which I dont mind because my son could play with me then, hed be proud.

Birky
01-03-2008, 12:58 PM
I don't know about any instruments but guitar when I say this but... I suggest you try picking harder songs in the future. People are better then you think and (at least on Guitar) this is a VERY easy song to 100%. Just a suggestion...

You sing?! We could have a band... CJ on guitar, Birky on bass, and WIKI singing the tune! Now all we need is a drummer and we will win every week!!

Same here. All I have is the last two tiers to go through, and then I'm done with drums on expert.

Edit: I'll probably be entering for drums.

Nope :) I always fail around 59%. The farthest I got was 62%.

I'm also stuck on Foreplay/Long Time (I think thats what its called). I can't even get past the intro on that song. Damn drum set.

Edit: I took a picture of the Gimme Shelter on Expert drums with my phone, but I have no idea how to put it on the forums. Can anyone tell me how to do this? I got 182850

Yeah man, I for one would like to do band scores. It would give me and my friends something to work for other than playing "Welcome Home" over and over...

Or you could just break it up into individual instruments, and each one is like a different category. For me, assembling a good band would be hard.

Why would it be hard? You just 99%'d expert drums. Shouldnt be that hard to find people to play with if your that good.

Well here's my entry for Guitar on Hard:

166,610

The attached image will have the actual pic of my score. Sorry, I'm not sure exactly how to embed it without getting a webpage for it.

And also I wanted to say that I really like the idea behind this and I think more people will participate, but only if you make the rules a little clearer. I can see that you've worked on them since their orignal versions, but I think you can be more precise, and add more to it.

That's why I'm asking if you would let me co-moderate the weekly tournament. I know I'm pretty new to the forums, but I think I could be pretty good at taking everyone's critcisms and making it a better tournament.

I hope you'll consider it, because I have some ideas to improve on what's already here, and hopefully we can get it big enough to maybe get stickied.

So PM me if you're interested in my help, and thanks for listening

Well if Blista is making a fun and dandy band sotw I will definitely be entering every week. If anyone wants to be in the band with me just tell me. I have five stared all of expert on guitar and can pretty much 100% most bass songs. Looking for a singer and/or (depending on if it is a 3 or 4 man band) drummer and another guitarist or bassist. If he is down for it I would like Wiki to be screaming his lungs out for us. Also... Mike, CJ? Guitar? + a good drummer. Anyone just PM me or post in here I guess if you want to be in the band. O ya, and I plan on winning every week :D

Rule changes for next week:
