Alright, we have our final 8 files. Voting for week 6 is starting now. I'll remind everyone that you can still vote even if you're eliminated. Good luck!

Since it's nearing the end of the week, here's my feedback for all 7 other files:

ANCHOR (Pandy)
- Good sync
- Accents such as freezes going into m26 are great
- Smooth crossover runs
- 24ths at m45 appears to be 16ths...?
- Not my style but it's consistent and works well as a chart
- Some jump flow, especially at the end, seems a bit weird
- Expert feels a little plain since it lacks the turns of Challenge

Fin.ArcDeaR (brunobg)
- Late
- Is this Lachryma 2?
- Good patterning; looks quite fun
- Good use of different patterns for 16ths
- A true stamina tester
- Inclusion of crossovers but only in the 8ths adds good spice to the chart

GITADORASSICA (t7r)
- Good sync
- Clean patterning; distinctly t7r style
- Interesting inclusion of 270s midway through
- Does feel like it's on the safe side
- No real points of criticism

Mistress Ann ni hanataba wo (VanEden)
- Good sync
- Great song choice
- Rhythms cover the song's many elements very well
- Would've liked to see a little more jumps or other accents in patterning for the 202.5 section
- Seems more like a 14 to me

Raindrops (TonyAkita)
- Good sync
- Nice chill file in a round with mostly only hard charts
- Patterning is a little plan and feels 'safe'
- I like the freezes in the middle
- Shocks don't feel like they fit
- Similar overall impressions for Expert chart

Shin Ou -RESONANCE- (Forced)
- Good sync
- Nice and appropriate pick; feels like a 'boss song'
- Jump-step-step-jump sequences are great
- Lots of interesting tech and patterning
- Ending crossovers are cool
- Similar impressions for Expert

snow storm -euphoria- (Oni)
- Good sync
- Reminds me of a 2014-ish DDR chart, or a gameboy chart
- Good use of gallops
- I like the rhythms
- Solid file; not much else to say


Extremely good charts all around, and I gave at least 1 point to every file. It's at the point where I started getting picky about patterning I like/don't like and who was more ambitious with their charts.

I'd like to request feedback on my file (Beyond The Geostationary Orbit Level) if anyone wants to offer it.

8th Place
TonyAkita
raindrops -Future Bass Mix- - 15pts

It was great to see your journey throughout the tournament, leading all the way into the final round. We'll be looking forward to seeing what you have to offer in the future.


7th Place
brunobg24
Fin.ArcDeaR - 17pts

Throughout the tournament you've put out nothing but solid files with great energy. Loved your song selection as well. I had been listening to WWW nonstop for like a week prior, so I got super psyched (and paranoid maybe lol) when you submitted it.


6th Place
Pandemonium X
ANCHOR - 20pts

Considering how close this was, as well as netting 5th, 3rd, and 2nd place finishes leading up to it, you put up a great fight, and it's probably a well deserved vacation from all the behind the scenes work. I'd like to say thank you again for giving me this opportunity as the new host.


5th Place
Oni-91
snow storm -euphoria- - 21pts

One point separations can even happen in the finals. Grabbing two 5th place and one 3rd place finishes, with some downright bangers might I add, your files are always something to look forward to.


4th Place
tsugaru7reveng
GITADORASSICA - 23pts

Fantastic files from start to finish. I'll go on record saying NANI THE FUCK may be my favorite tournament file I've encountered so far.


3rd Place
FoRCeDNaTuRe
Shin ou -RESONANCE- -25pts

A solid climb into the final round, capped off with a killer chart that may be your best work yet for a 3rd place finish. Only way from here is up in terms of what you can put out in the future.


Congrats to all our finalists, and a huge thanks to everyone who submitted for this tournament for making this all possible. Now, onto our winners, to determine who will be creating the themes for our 2020 Summer Contest:


Runner Up
Van Eden
Mistress Ann ni hanataba wo - 28pts

Yeah, it's me. When I started doing these tournaments back in 2018 I didn't really have any sense of style or patterning, just tapping out what I thought was fun and not really seeing any reason to change it. Over the years going through everyone else's files and seeing what works and what to look for has really affected the way I approach each file, and I'm still far from done learning. Thanks to everyone for your support these last few months, it was a huge honor to host my first tournament, and I hope to see you all back for the next one.

But of course I don't want to take too much of your time, we have one more person we need to recognize, don't we?


Congratulations to our Battle Royale 2020 Champion:
talkion
Beyond The Geostationary Orbit Level - 31pts

It was a long time coming to say the least. Placing in the top 5 for the entire tournament, only to top it off with a legendary 19 for the grand finale, as well as receiving the highest total votes overall, we can all agree that this was well deserved.


Once again thank you to everyone who participated, and I'll be seeing you soon!

*EDIT*
Click here to see the full scorecard.
Some extra stuff:
Total Files: 111
Total Runtime: 244 minutes 4 seconds
Total Charts: 561 ($2,805.00 market value)
Times I had to sift through my PMs wondering why there are more votes than messages only to realize I also voted: more than once

My top files for the tournament:
1. NANI THE FUCK
2. Take Me To Pleasure Island
3. Beyond The Geostationary Orbit
4. Shiva
5. Shin ou -RESONANCE-

Man, what a legendary final round.

And tak takes the contest with an incredibly well-stepped 19. Well done, tak. You deserve this.

Congrats to VanEden as well for second place! You've had really great song choices throughout the contest.

This was a fun tourney. So many great files.

I'll see you all again in the Summer Contest!

As I did not win, I do feel like I'm in my simfile prime. Hoping I can bring the hot hand over to SC.

Good job everyone.

Shocked

Really really really, really ecstastic to have won this. My first time winning a week and a contest! With a 19 at that!!!
It's been about a year since I submitted my first contest file (for SC2019) and I wouldn't have expected to climb to the top back then.
After losing by one vote in Simfile League I was really fired up to win this contest, and seeing every file I make reach Top 5 but not quite make it all the way was both simultaneously discouraging and encouraging. Making a 19 was a risk I was planning to take from the beginning of the contest, so to say the least I'm relieved to see it pay off!

Some scattered thoughts on Battle Royale files:
- Congrats to Van Eden for runner up, ForcedNature for 3rd and to every other finalist. This round was seriously impressive
- Kex, Marten, led and Ian being dropped from the second cutoff was very unexpected for me. I really hope to see them all again in Summer Contest
- Shame that blank's votes for Week 1 didn't go through. I can't help but wonder what kind of files he would've released if he made it through the first cutoff
- First time running into t7r, but his charts were also phenomenal. I agree with Van Eden that Nani The Fuck!! was one of the best contest files I've ever seen. Similarly first time seeing gameboy, shorty, and EmeraldX, who made files I really enjoyed
- vona's files have consistently improved through these past few competitions, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next contest
- PenTA_'s charting style is a breath of fresh air in the Ziv meta, so I hope to see him back for more

Thank you to VanEden for hosting this contest. Every change you've made has made the contest more enjoyable and professional, and I can't wait to work with you as host!

Once the first phase of the Battle Royale was finished, I was inspired to create something to commemorate all of the hard work that was put in by every competitor. This something I will now reveal to you all now that the contest has concluded.

INTRODUCING SOMETHING SPECIAL...

https://zenius-i-vanisher.com/simfiles/Kex%27s%20Sim%20Collection/Best%20of%20Z-I-v%20Battle%20Royale%202020%20~The%20Battle%20Begins~/Best%20of%20Z-I-v%20Battle%20Royale%202020%20~The%20Battle%20Begins~.png
Best of Z-I-v Battle Royale 2020 ~The Battle Begins~


The first of 3 medley files for Z-I-v Battle Royale 2020!

A 13-minute medley file containing select sections of 30 songs, 1 song from each competitor in Phase 1 of the contest!
This file also includes a unique take on the entire medley by 3 different stepcharters, as well as a chart containing the original steps for each song.

S-Standard - about:blank ver.
S-Heavy - EmeraldX ver.
S-Challenge - Kekkle (KexMiX) ver.
S-EDIT - Zenius ver. (Original charts)


Please note that some sections of the Zenius chart had to be mirrored/altered to maintain flow.

Congrats to all the winners! You guys all did amazing this BR, and I'm personally really glad to have been able to participate myself. Lots of great files throughout and being able to be introduced to so much great music as well really helped with the fun.

I'm really excited for the Summer Contest as well, so until then, see ya around!

8th place. Well, choked this round.

Honestly, I am surprised I made it to the finals. It felt so good to have a chance to be one of the co-hosts for the Summer Contest this year. As VanEden said, it has been quite a journey. Some of my files killed it, others were kind of lame, and some were just damn good. I'm so glad for all the support everyone gave me, and I hope to keep improving. I am so looking forward to SC 2020!

Good game to all and keep on steppin'!
