Don't be fooled by the name. This is a more laid-back contest hosted by none other than DDRDave (https://www.twitch.tv/ddrdave)! He is a fan of both my and Ben Speirs' files (and plenty others), which is why we know about it first, but we thought it would be cool if more people joined in on the fun as well!

OVERVIEW
Two songs will be picked each round, and participants will have the opportunity to step one or both songs. At the end of each round, all submissions will be played on-stream and voted on to determine two song winners as well as a round winner, who gets to choose one of the two songs for the next round!

CONTEST RULES
1. Two songs will be picked each round, one by Dave and one by the winner of the previous round (except for the first round, in which case Dave also picks the second song).
2. Each simfile maker will submit a simfile for one or both songs. You're not required to submit a simfile for both songs, but your chances of winning the round are reduced if you don't chart both songs.
3. Files will be submitted via Discord DM to Dave himself (daif#4201). If a simfile contains multiple charts, you must specify exactly ONE chart that will be eligible for voting.
4. After each submission deadline, all simfiles will be collected and the selected charts will be played on-stream.
5. The videos of each playthrough will be saved, and everyone will be asked to vote on their favorite chart for each song.
6. For each song, the simfile with the most votes will win that spot in the final contest pack. Any ties are first broken by whoever currently has fewer song wins, then by Dave's choice if necessary.
7. The simfile maker with the most total votes across both songs will win the round. Any ties are first broken by whoever currently has fewer round wins, then by Dave's choice if necessary.
9. The winner will then get the opportunity to choose one of the two songs for the next round!

SIMFILE RULES
1. You must have at least 1 singles chart in any difficulty slot, but preferably Heavy or Challenge (doubles and other charts are also allowed but not required). If you are providing more than one singles chart, you must choose one to be considered for the contest.
2. Charts must be rated on the X-Scale (out of 20).
3. Songs must be cut to less than 2:30 in length.
4. Pad charts only, no keyboard charts.
5. Automatically generated steps are not allowed.
6. New simfiles only. If a song has already been locked in for the round, and you have already stepped that song, you may not participate in the contest for that song only.
7. Graphics (and music video, if applicable) are not required but are HIGHLY recommended. If you do not have graphics, someone else can provide them for you (most likely the previous round winner).

SCHEDULE
Currently, there are five rounds planned for this contest, along with seven more rounds for a separate FEARMIX pack right afterwards, finishing in time right before Halloween. The full schedule can be found here:

Yes! Endorsed! Whilst we've only ran one week so far as a test it's very fun to see how other step artists take on the same song, you get some really interesting results and get to see your stuff played LIVE so the more we have the merrier!

The community pack at the end of it all will be a real eclectic mix too!

This DDRdave guy sounds like a total egotistical prick.

I agree with Ben. It's very refreshing to chart these and see how others approach the songs. Also seeing them done live and having instant feedback from Dave and the community watching is amazing.

If you've never charted a song and want to start here's the perfect place to jump in! If you have questions about where to start hit one of us up here and we'll get you setup!

Hey! Would it be possible to get another invite link for the server? The one in the OP has expired.

Thanks for the reminder, I updated the link. This one should work forever now.

Also, added a sentence in the OP clarifying tie votes.

Updated the OP with the results and the new rule changes (let me know if there are any errors):

3. Files will be submitted via Discord DM to Dave himself (daif#4201). If a simfile contains multiple charts, you must specify exactly ONE chart that will be eligible for voting.
6. For each song, the simfile with the most votes will win that spot in the final contest pack. Any ties are first broken by whoever currently has fewer song wins, then by Dave's choice if necessary.
7. The simfile maker with the most total votes across both songs will win the round. Any ties are first broken by whoever currently has fewer round wins, then by Dave's choice if necessary.

(The reason for the last two is to incentivize variety in the people contributing to the pack.)


Round 3 has now started! Scheduled deadline is July 22nd.

The two songs are:
VAMPIRE / nyankobrq (chosen by Dave)
Rainbow Dream / DJ Genki feat. Yukacco (chosen by HellKiteChaos)


Also, I added a rule clarification regarding songs that people may have already stepped.

"6. New simfiles only. If a song has already been locked in for the round, and you have already stepped that song, you may not participate in the contest for that song only."
