Stepmania Online Shuffle Tournament!!

Postby JunkoXXX » Sat Sep 05, 2015 9:57 am

Wow It is almost that time of the year where we say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016! What is an awesome way to end the year of 2015 and welcome 2016? A tournament! This is going to be a 2 week long tournament that will end with the final round on new years day that will welcome 2016! Then we will do a SMO night after the tournament has been concluded. Hang out and talk to smo friends all night! What an awesome way to end the year right?

Now time for the crappy professional tournament shit:

This tournament is called a Shuffle tournament, and no you will not be playing on shuffle(unless you chose too, which I doubt.) This tournament will start on December 18 and end on January 1st. 2 weeks, seriously? Yes seriously, you will be given a week and a half to rest up till smo night. The main tournament will be on the days of Saturday December, 19th, Sunday December 20th, and Monday December 21st. Why do we start on the 18th though? We start on the 18th, well the 18th is the starting festival, more on that later in this post!
Spoiler: show
1.So how will this work?
We will have 46(21 index mods+21 spread mods+2 semi-final mods+2 final round mods) Tournament Moderators! WHAT 43 MODERATORS?!?! Yes 44 moderators, it is a weird number but I am one of them since I will be the final round moderator for the Index division. How will that work? We will have two divisions spread and Index. We will have 2 winners in this tournament. They will be named the Best Spread Player of 2015 and the Best Index Player of 2015.

2. Why are the main event days split up into three days and not in one day?
We are expecting to have around 200 contestants from SMO, FFR, SMMOC, and Zenius-i-Vanisher. We can not have many people on the server on that day so we split it up to have 14 rooms open for 60 people in the early hours, 14 rooms for the late hours, and 14 rooms in the middle hours.

3. How will the members play?
It is really simple. Each room will play a set number of songs from easiest to hardest from a set pack. Each room will have a max limit of 15 minutes to complete a round. If your room finishes early you must remain there until the 15 minutes are up. The day will be 105 minutes long. Just over an hour and a half. It will not take that long so do not worry!

4. Why are we separated in different hours?
It is all based on your time zone so we can all play, or you. First 7 mods will be around your timezone. So if you live in Korea which at 7 pm is around 8-9 am in the morning. We will have mods around the same time zone or that wakes up early enough for it. IF you are in the Middle Hours which in England is around 7pm we will have moderators in America that it will be around 2 pm in our time. Then the late hours, which will be around 8pm in Atlantic Time will have mods in the same time zone or a mod that lives in the pacific time zone?

6. What is the song list?

Spoiler: show
Index: (will be different depending on the room)
1st place 45 points
2nd 40 points
3rd 30 points
4th 25 points
Everyone Else 15 points.
1st place 105 points
2nd 95 points
3rd 80 points
4th 75 points
Everyone Else 60 points.(why is spread worth more than index? Spread players are rare, and the files are much harder than index.

Each moderator will report the scores to me or Spooky Magician which will be calculated by the end of the day first five of that day in both divisions will move on to the semi-finals. So 15 players will move on in both divisions. In the final there will only be 10

Spoiler: show
1. Everyone must be in judge 4-7. It is for much accurate scoring on the system
2. No cheating, that means no rates.
3. If you can not play in any of the hours of your day, message me, I will tell you what will happen.
4. No harassing any moderators of the tournament. You will be disqualified.
5. There are no second chances. If you mess up a song you messed up.

I forgot to mention that you are only allowed to do only one division since it will mess up the scoring

I'm not sure if I should enter the tournament, because everything depends on the time zone... And the family trips. But, if I could be able to enter the tournament, I would join the "Index Division"
I make animations on MikuMikuDance. Go check it out. If you want...

I thinking about a video... Ok?
