"Let's Do the Rain Dance"

Count me as one of the people suspicious about Stargazer proceeding. There were only 3 people that voted for it listed in the results: Mr. Music (+5), Slingshot (+4), and SupremeX (+3). (Note: this means the song had 12 points, not 13 as listed in the results, but that doesn't affect the ranking, so moving on) All 3 of these voters put this as their top song on their ordered lists (with only Slingshot introducing a tie as the second item), and the rest of their votes seeming to align with the general consensus otherwise. Combined with my impression of one of these voters, I heavily suspect there may be some fixing or collusion afoot, because Stargazer's flaws are pretty objective and should've kept it at the very least far away from being the top voted song on otherwise typical ballots.

I retract the assertion, I've seen elsewhere enough to convince me it wasn't coordinated, though I must still question the decision to put a song with patterns like these as the best sim of the round, even ignoring sync:

Also the total votes listed for that chart is 386 which is definitely not possible if everyone has 15 points. That means if 26 people voted then there are 4 votes missing. I'm not calling foul play but maybe a recount is necessary.

I'm clearly a beginner at this but it only motivates me to try harder next round! I mean we all gotta start somewhere!

I don't appreciate the accusation. I can prove that I played all of the files. Maybe PM me before you try to drag my name through the mud. My laptop causes some sync issues with pretty much everything, which is why I was unable to tell it was off-sync, and why my submission is off-sync.

The votes themselves are legit, everyone used 15 points. Some people write their votes to make them as hard to properly count as possible, but I am manually recounting the votes right now and the discrepancy should not be there anymore.

Alright, here are the corrected votes:

Knotfunk - unchanged
Lose My Mind - unchanged
Witches Dance - unchanged
Dance Ke Legend - +2
POP STARS - unchanged
Addicted to A Memory - unchanged
CELEBRATE NITE - +1
1999 - unchanged
All I Want - unchanged
Party Rave - +1
Down On Love - unchanged
Paradoxical Complex - unchanged
Right On Time - unchanged
Ejecta - unchanged
Stargazer - -1

Magpipe - unchanged
Mango Love - unchanged
Push Every Button - +1
PSYCHIC FIRE - +1
Kasaihochiki -Silencer- - unchanged
Back in Time - unchanged
Pop'n Wei - -1
Yine - unchanged
BOSS RUSH - unchanged
Hala Bel Khamis - unchanged
I'm Outta Love - unchanged

Total votes are now correctly 390. CELEBRATE NITE moves up one place, Push Every Button is now tied with Mango Love and Magpipe, but none of the eliminations are changed. Most likely Pandemonium X made a small mistake. Happens to everyone.

As for vote manipulation, I honestly highly doubt it. I myself don't vote for the most "correct" stepchart, but the most fun one. To "question" the way someone votes is pretty pointless in my opinion.

I mean, as much as I thought Stargazer was a bottom-tier file with lots of bad double-stepping patterns, and as much as I would have greatly preferred VanEden or Tikal or Bruno to move on to the next round instead, people are allowed to vote for whatever they want. Confused That's just kind of how things end up going sometimes. It sucks but that's just the contest format.

Tell me about it, I made so many dumb little mistakes co-hosting Summer Contest last year. The weird vote totals don't make me suspicious of any foul play, this kind of thing happens a lot. Laughing Out Loud

I really thought about getting someone else with me to count the votes and now looking back at some small errors, I should have done that. Sorry if the votes were not 100% correct and thank you for fixing them, I'm just glad the fixed votes really doesn't change who's in and who's out.

I think I'm going to have a 3rd party count the votes instead of just me (like how it is with SC). I thought doing votes ala PM would prevent people from pulling the vote manipulation card since that's as anonymous as you can be with the votes but here we are. At this point I don't know what else to do.

I also love how most of the people who are upset about Stargazer did not vote at all and if they did vote, it would have likely fixed the "problem" see how the file got in by only 1-2 votes.

So I'm not alone in feeling gypped that that mess of a chart BARELY made it in over mine, VanEden's, and bruno's?

Considering that this is chopsie's first(?) Battle Royale, I'm not going to give him too much slack. I also don't blame anyone for the votes. Besides, I saw some of the criticism left by Tikal, and I agree on some of his choices as well as how he said mine needed "a little more pizzazz." Had I tried harder on mine, I probably would've made it in, but here I am tied with VanEden for 16.

Still, I appreciate any votes for mine. I'm glad some of you guys like my work and wish it were better. I'm also surprised that nobody felt that the chart was out of sync. I thought it would be after I re-downloaded it and tried it out, but the more I think about it, the more it'll make my head spin.

At the end of the day, all I can say is...

Mor Ardain -Roaming the Wastes- / Kenji Hiramatsu

Beginner 1/2 Light 3/4 Standard 6/8 Heavy 7/10 Challenge 9/13

Best song in Xenoblade Chronicles 2? I don't know, there's a lot of good music in that game, but this song's definitely up there as one of my favorites.
Of course the best part is that since it's not a battle theme, it doesn't get interrupted by characters shouting things at each other every 0.5 seconds.

Hi, I eliminate the simfiles. it was a confusion, since many time I don't participate in a contest and i was not acquainted with these rules. Anyway my simfile was eliminated with me.

Bye! Tongue

Old DDR/ITG scale: Beginner 1 Light 3 Standard 6 Heavy 8 Challenge 9
X-scale: Beginner 1 Light 4 Standard 8 Heavy 12 Challenge 14

Wanted to try to test the waters with a few BPM changes & stops (one slowdown before the arrows appear, followed by a stop soon after; one slowdown during each bridge, and one very brief speedup followed by a stop before/after the second bridge). BPM transitions on Standard Heavy & Challenge are marked with mines. Enjoy~

Okay, I'm at where I got knocked out last time, so I'm trying not to overthink this one. Here goes!

https://zenius-i-vanisher.com/simfiles/Z-I-v%20Battle%20Royale%202019/%5BRound%202%5D%20-%20Tokiwatari/%5BRound%202%5D%20-%20Tokiwatari-jacket.png
Tokiwatari / Yamajet
BPM 85-170
Beginner 2 // Light 3 // Standard 6 // Heavy 8 // Challenge 9


From the rhythm game Cytus II.

I kiiinda like the heavy chart better than the challenge one, at least for now. Still, I like making an interesting layout for all skill levels if I can. In the future, maybe I should try something more at the boss stage level...eh, one step at a time. (Also, I'm proud of the Cytus connections I snuck into the graphics, for being as basic as they are. It's the small things.)
