Excellent planning Mr.K. Let me know if you need any help with anything.

Edit: As for the tournament itself, I dunno if I can make it. I kind of want to work on my theme right now. (Have some ideas I want to try/experiment with.)

I am missing something in my part. I'm revising this again.

This deduction only applies if someone is in index/spread tier 1. Anyone in spread/index tier 2 using handicaps will have their score not counted. However, the instant disqualification for the handicaps will occur for people that make this attempt in index/spread tier 3.

For all tiers/division, it's strongly recommended not to use handicaps anyway.

I want to be Spread Tier 2.

Edit: I'm confused, do I actually need to join a room on the tournament dates, or can I just make a room for myself? From what I understand, playing together in a room or alone only differs in your "tournament feel" as you have to compete with others, am I right?

The objective is pretty much rack up the most points between July 20th and August 3rd in order to win.

So between that timeline, you are given two options which you can join the tournament room that have people in your division or create a room and see if people from your division join so you can play together and compete with others. Just make sure to have the room password-protected so people that aren't participating the tournament join.

By the way, if you're competing alone in Spread tier 2, I may add a ghost player to compete with you. I'll explain what a ghost player is later on.
Edit: Nvm, someone else decide to join with you in Spread Tier 2.

The themes are listed in case you need a theme that have online support. Just put it in theme folder of your SM5 folder, and go to options of your main menu, appearance options and locate your theme if you want to use it.

What do you need to install? Well, look over the intro post of this tournament and see what packs you're required to have for the tournament. So if you're in index tier 1, get the song packs that is needed for that tier/division.

I'll put you in Index tier 1 then.

Edit: Already got you added. But I will noted that you're taking the first song pool.

@Luxii Thanks. I added him to spread tier 1 list.

I'm sort of new but why not. can I be in both for tier 1?
also, how does the point system work? do you only get points for each song once?

You do get points for each song, but you can update your scores as long as the tournament session last.

Point system works by determining who gets the most points until August 3rd to be determine winner. If there's a tie-breaker in term of points, then a tie-breaker match will start which determine the %score.

Plus, since you said you're sort of new, it's suggested that you get familiar with playing online before you join the tournament. Also, get the required packs for your tier/division that way if you're going to play with people in your division, you won't be lacking packs.

Anyway, I'm adding you to spread/index tier 1.

@IvyML You're good to go.

There's a reason I have alternative draft if you don't agree with the primary draft.
