Going to try to change things up this year. Normally the Tournament of Immortals is what decides who runs Summer Contest, but we're not going to have that at the end of SC to decide the winner of that. Also this is a chance to try something new I've been wanting to do.

Z-I-v Battle Royal is simple. Each week members upload simfiles, simfiles are then voted on, but here's the catch. There's a threshold that has to be passed in order to advance to the next round. So only the top 50% or X amount of members will advance (threshold will depend how many members enter). This continues into the final round, where the top two will win the Battle Royal and host SC 2017. This contest is planed to go fast, so please be prepared.

At the end of each round, the bottom half of votes will be eliminated.

TIMES TO KNOW:
February 27th-March 6th: Contest starts Submissions for [Round 1] start. (March 6th, deadline to enter ends)
March 6th-13th: Voting for [Round 1]
March 13-20th Submissions for [Round 2] start.
March 20th-March 27th: Voting for Round 2
March 27th-April 3rd: Submissions for [Round 3]
April 3rd-April 10th: Voting for [Round 3]
*April 10th- April 17th: [Final Round] submissions
*April 17th-April 24th: [Final Round] vote. (Top two win)

* - If needed

WEEK DEADLINES ARE AT 5PM UTC. If you need help converting the time, go to this link.

This contest also will be a testing ground for a few rule changes before SC 2017.

Contest Rules:
1. You are required to vote if you enter a file. Tie breakers are decided in favor of someone who voted. You can still vote if you are eliminated.
2. You can't vote for your own song (of course)
3. One file per round, so make it count!
4. files must be uploaded by the deadline, no exceptions
5. Name files accordingly: [Round 1] - SONG NAME. (Including the hyphen). This is so files are organized and easy to find.
5b. If two people upload the same song in the same week, put your user name next to the file when you upload it. [Round 1] - SONG NAME (USER NAME). It's rare, but it has happened before.
6. NEW: You must have a user rating of at least 20 pts in order to vote. You can still enter the contest but you need to have at least 20 user points to vote. This should prevent any multiple accounts/voter fraud from happening.
7. If there's still a tie between files that goes pass the round threshold, members who tie will still go on to the next round.
7b. In the event of the threshold being 0 votes, Users who don't upload a file and/or have 0 votes will be eliminated.

Simfile Rules:
1. NEW: You must have at least 1 chart. Having Light-Heavy is no longer required but is highly recommended. (doubles and other chart times are also allowed but not required).
2. Songs to be rated in the Classic DDR/ITG scale. 1-10/13ish. This way we don't get a mix bag of songs in classic and X ratings and have a mess between the same level.
3. Songs must be less than 2:30 in length.
4. Pad charts for this contest only, no keyboard charts.
5. Automatically generated steps are not allowed.
6. New simfiles only. You can't re-release a song you've already done.
7. Graphics are not needed for a song but are HIGHLY recommended. If you can not have graphics, someone else can make some on request or a placeholder will be provided for you.

Voting:
You will be given 15 points per week to spread up to 5 songs around.

Example:
Song A: 5pts
Song B: 3pts
Song C: 2pts
Song D: 1pts
Song E: 4pts

OR

Song A: 5pts
Song B: 5pts
Song C: 5pts

Also please update the vote count when you post your votes.

You can sign up by saying so clearly in this thread or sending me a PM. If you entered the contest and still can't upload a file, let me know sooner rather than later and I'll try to fix it. Some names get lost in the cracks sometimes.

It's been awhile since I wanted to try something new for a simfile contest, so let's hope this ends up being a big hit! Green Grin

Not sure if it's Battle Royal or Battle Royale. Both work. Roll Eyes

8. The 1st place winner for each week will get immunity for the next round. A little something extra for the best file of the week. This rule is voided in the final round.

Not a fan of this one. Let it be an actual Battle Royale.

Cleaned up a rule after some feedback. Each week, the bottom half of votes will be eliminated at the end of each round. That's half for who's left to start the round. So if 30 enter round 1. 15ish will go on to round 2. Then half of that 15 will move on to round 3, so around 7-8ish.

This makes it easier to understand what the threshold is for each week.
