We had a tie in the poll this week and since I can can no longer see who voted to remove 'drive-by voters' I am going stay in keeping with standard SotW Tie Breaker rulings. Closer To The Heart wins because it was the first song to hit 19 votes.

Song for the Week: Closer To The Heart

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.

It's an unusual situation and I had to make the decision fast. I'll figure out a better system for the future.

Ok, maybe I'm misreading something, but you can see who voted for what after you vote. You just have to click the number of votes received to see the list of voters. So clicking on either of the 19s would've brought that info up. I would've mentioned this sooner, but I was out of town for a bit.

Not that I mind the results though. Yay Closer to the Heart! :D

Edit: Just crossed my mind this might not be the case if you posted the poll. Sorry if that's the case. ^^;

Heh, I don't think either of us noticed that. I never knew we could see who voted for what! That'll teach me not to try to hover over everything to find a link. :p

Expert Guitar.

Yay for first entry after getting this game.

Edit: Sorry for crappy quality, taken from a Cell phone cam. Should be easy enough to read though.

Here's my Medium difficulty scores. All f/c with the best paths I could figure out...

Next time I can try hard but I can't get 100% on them yet.

Ack, I really wanted to participate this week, but it flew away and I'm not going to first start trying 30 minutes before the end. Boo.

Well, I did try expert guitar earlier in the week, but the best I could do was 107k. Ah, bad OD paths thwarting me again! :)

Excellent!

Now I'll try to do better than 4* on Hard vocals and guitar but I don't know Afterlife so I'll probly suck.

Do we get badges for the win still? I hadn't seen anything so I thought I'd ask.

by the way it looks, Wiki is not doing badges anymore, think he stoped at 30, as he was getting overwhelmed, in a few weeks (i think it is) we will be moving to rock band 2 forums for song of the week, and twisted has a new plan for badges

Cool. Hope we can get more participants. There's no honor in winning a badge if no one else enters.
