View Full Version : SotW29 + Poll for SotW 30

Poll is up for the next DLC SotW.

Song for the Week: Paranoid

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.

Before I forget to mention it. All DLC is now entered in my randomizer (Well almost all. I left Silver out as it's fairly pointless), and all have an equal chance to appear.

Just a reminder, the 4 songs that do not get picked will appear in the poll next week with a new song picked to fill it out to 5 songs. If a song goes several weeks without being getting many votes, I will remove it and replace it with another song.

Well, I'll just say Boston was the first DLC album I bought and Brad Delp is one of my all time favorite singers. I could sing Smokin' all day long. :p

Oh, and thank you for recognizing me as a threat. ;)

You know, I 'm going to go out on a limb and saw this poll is a bad idea. Anyone can go on here and pick one of those songs and then never return, screwing it up for everyone who cares.

im thinking it would take more than just one person. I think there are enough people that participate and take the contest seriously enough that it would take more than one to screw it up

Image doesn't show. It must be visible when I check at Midnight EST on Saturday or it doesn't count.

how do i enter for song of the week?

Rules are in the first post, but in short it goes like this:

1) Read the rules
2) Pick a difficulty and instrument you want to play
3) Play the song specified in the first post. That's the song of the week.
4) Repeat step 3 until you are satisfied with your score.
5) Take a picture of the final screen you get immediately after you finish the song, make sure that instrument icon, score, difficulty and song name are clearly visible.
6) Upload it to a picture hosting site or your own web space if you have it.
7) Post it in the thread by Midnight on Saturday.

2 problems, 1) don't link thumbnails, post the actual image. You can resize it if it's huge. 2) The instrument icon must be recognizable.

OldWiki Tik makes them. If you haven't recieved yours yet, try sending him a PM. I'm fairly sure he mentioned in this week's sotw that he finished the banners for this week, so if it's not in your inbox, let him know.
