Song for the Week: Critical Acclaim

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: difficulty, 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.

Good thing thing Rock Band 2 is coming out tomorrow because I can't do the SOTW for the third time in a row.

Can't wait to see SOTW 1 for Rock Band 2

EDIT: When does RB2 SOTW start anywho?

Sick. I already took a picture of my score when I played this song last week just in case it was chosen. But this will probably get beaten by Apache if he has it

Unfortunately, because of all the stupid useless topics in the RB2 forum, this has been pushed to the third page, but nonetheless

You can use RB2 as long as all the required information is on the screen: song name, difficulty, score, and instrument.

*sigh* too much work, too many meetings, not enough gaming time!

I'm shooting for trying this later this week. I ran through it a couple of times over the weekend, waiting for RB2 to drop, so I'm hoping I won't have to kill myself to get a descent score ... and that my voice holds out that long. I've got a cold coming on. *sniffles* :(

I'm not sure if you will accept this, if you can't then that's fine, Apache can win this week. I don't feel like trying to reFC it on quickplay and having to restart a million times from the greens at the beginning.

only problem with that is, there is nothing showing that it is Expert

The fact it's gold star shows it's expert tbh.

Except the fact that it is Gold Starred.

No, he doesn't. I know it's gold starred, but I'm not even going to start making judgment calls like this. It's not fair to the other divisions that don't have any way of determining difficulty on that screen.

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: difficulty, song name, score, and instrument icon.

Expert Vocals

Had like 3 runs on guitar where I could/should have FCed but was never able to get the solo and all the strumming on the same run.

Got annoyed with that and got this 2nd try! ;)

DRAT!

Sharon, I half expected you to beat that score(the other half being you not checking it before the end), but I just wanted to keep you on your toes since I don't recall seeing you post a non-100% score before!

Anyways, can we maybe cross post in RB2 forum to encourage more participation or does that have to wait til the new contest?

I wasn't going to start cross posting until it moved to the RB2 forum. But now that there is an advantage to using RB1 over RB2 I'm in a quandary as to what to do.

Heh, you know, you're right, I rarely do post anything less than 100%. I figure at this level of competition, if it's not 100%, than I deserve to get beaten. I had been busy with RB2 all week, though, and wanted to post a score before I forgot. I had been singing for several hours when I got the 98% but I had to pack it in for the night. I had a feeling someone would beat it since I hadn't even found a good path.

Your score was excellent, good enough for #5 on the leaderboards. It was also just enough incentive to make me try one more time to 100% it. I got lucky and barely beat you (#3) but I'm sure our scores won't hold for long. :p
