Song for the Week: Smokin'

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: Send 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.

Nice to see every possible spot filled last week. More participation is always a good thing!

I can read them. If you could have them a little bigger in the future that would be great, but I can read those so no biggy.

Well, tried this morning and got 147K on expert vocals before I got a migraine and had to quit. Didn't get a picture, but I'm hoping to do better than 97% when I feel better.

Actually for Smokin' Expert guitar its all instant activations, you're probably already doing the optimal path.

This was probably the worst 100% run ever. I easily over strummed 5 times and used a terrible SP path. Still, it is about 20,000 points higher than my expert score. :)http://s182.photobucket.com/albums/x310/mbalsan/?action=view&current=smokinhard.jpghttp://s182.photobucket.com/albums/x310/mbalsan/?action=view&current=smokinhard.jpg

Yah, but I usually set my sights on at least FCing, at best Top 10 ... I know its overkill but I figure if I'm putting in this much time, I'd like for it to last. ;)


Have I mentioned that I'm an overachiever? :p

Oh really? I was actually trying to do something a little different earlier, I guess I'll stick with instant activating, and I just now realized I was only about 1k off of a gold star... gotta do something about that.

I have an idea for combining DLC and Hat tricks. Basically, if you win a hat trick, you can either choose the next main setlist song, or choose a song to put into the voting for next week. What do you think?

I kind of like that idea... Twisted, what do you think? It's a great way to reward the hat trick guy without taking away the ability for us to vote for a song.

Edit: Here are my newer scores.

Just FYI. I have a dart tournament tomorrow night, and I likely won't be home until after midnight. Sharon is going to put up the new song/poll for me. I don't think anybody has a Hat Trick attempt yet, but if you do get one, send your request to her not me. I'll post the winners for this one when I get home.

Contest still closes at midnight, whether the official post is made or not.

Sorry for the double post, but since this thread is nearing the second page, just wanted to bump it so people can get in their scores a little quicker and so I could post my score.

Hmm, I dont know if my kit can handle not dropping any notes on a single run. Oh well.

Edit: Hmm, -4, +Squeezes :p

God damn it, you had to pull out squeezes... I don't know how to do squeezes for shit. I think this week is going to you, Mike. And I know, my kit drops notes too, gets a little annoying :D.

animeaddict42
08-10-2008, 03:39 AM
-2, almost all squeezes, different OD path. Sorry Mike, should have given you more time to practice to beat it and such, but I just got back from a party, and only had about 30 minutes to get it. Nothing like learning how to squeeze in 5 minutes :D.

The way it's set up now is when you win the Hat Trick you can pick ANY song, DLC included, so why would anyone willingly give up a guaranteed song choice for a slot in the poll?
