DLC this week, I'll be switching to a poll soon so this is the last random one. The way it will work is a poll with 5 random choices, the winner will get removed and the next poll the losing 4 will return and a new random 5th song will be added.

Song for the Week: Ever Fallen in Love - Buzzcocks

Divisions:
Drums, Medium
Guitar, Medium
Vocals, Medium

Drums, Hard
Guitar, Hard
Vocals, Hard

Drums, Expert
Guitar, Expert
Vocals, Expert

You may enter as many divisions as you wish, however, you can only win in one division per instrument. If you switch difficulties on a particular instrument mid-week, your last entry is the one that counts.

Score is what matters. The highest score in each division wins.

If you win on Medium or Hard you must move up at least one difficulty level the following week or sit the week out. If you win on Expert you must stay on Expert until you lose or sit out a week.

A screenshot of the score screen that appears after the song is completed must be posted. No other screens will be accepted as proof of score. Please have the following easily identifiable: song name, score, and instrument icon.

If you win all three instruments, no more than 1 may be Medium difficulty, in a given week (Hat Trick), you get to pick the song for the following week.

There will be no ties. First person to post a score in a division gets credit for it. Only post a score if it is higher than a score already posted.

Contest will run from Midnight (EST) Saturday to Midnight (EST) the following Saturday. The contest closes at Midnight, whether I actually post that the contest is closed or not. I will not accept any entries posted after that time.

The songs are chosen at random by computer from a list of songs that have not been played yet. I have no input into what song comes next on the list.

Special Rule for Hat Trick
In the case of multiple winning Hat Tricks posted in the same week, the following system will be used to determine the winner. Each difficulty is assigned a handicapping point value. Each Medium entry gets 1 points, each Hard entry gets 2 points, and each Expert entry gets 3 points. The person whose Hat Trick entry has the highest number of points is the winner.

Ties follow the same rules as individual entries. First one posted wins.

Special Note: Sned me a PM with your song request when you think you have a Hat Trick. It prevents troubles in getting the next song up.

================================================== ===

Big thanks to soccerplaya for getting these started, and OldWIKI Tik for doing the banner graphics for both contests.

Feel free to discuss any issues you have with the contests with me.

How could you overlook this song? Its so damn good people. I'm so goin to be part of this weeks contest.

I think I'm goin to go with Hard Vocals here, as I can't match Wiki's 150k at all, maybe I'm using the wrong OD path.

Good luck everyone.

Good job! I wasn't going to try for a higher score again until Twisted went home tomorrow (hate taking time away from a weekend) but I'm going to see if I can't get a little higher, too, just for fun. It really is a great song. :woop:

175k?! jesus, im impressed. Can only get 172 :|
Can't really work out where you can squeeze any OD, or the best place to use them. Really dont wanna resort to using scorehero to find out, prefer to work it out for myself, but i really cannot see where to use it best if im not already doing so.

Honestly, whenever he has time. One day (maybe next week), when you least expect it, you'll get a PM from him in your inbox, and you'll be all: :woop:
Until then, I'd just try to forget about the badges if I were you, it'll make the time go by faster.

If you notice in a week or two that other people have SotW 28 badges (or 29+), but you still haven't received a PM from him, then you might want to send him a friendly reminder.
