ok so scheduling this with the contestants made me realise i need to streamline a few things lol. here goes:

• a few CONTESTANTS will need to battle on consecutive days (usually just twice in a row, if anything)

• VOTING is now a two-hour window after each day's round is finished (between 0:00 and 2:00 GMT). winners will be declared at that time, and new rounds will be made at 2:00 GMT of the next day (giving contestants 22 hours to write, each day. the first day will also start at 2:00 GMT)

ENTRY TIME IS 02:00 GMT to 00:00 GMT the next day (not 02:00 GMT the next day)

• battles will go up on http://s3m.it at the start of each day and close at the end of each day (please don't submit an entry if it isnt your battle, i will just delete it lol)

• two themes must b given by the following people for this week (one for each battle. if u end up not using a theme, it will b held in storage to be used next week, and can be changed up to that time if u wish):

CosmicGem
Flalcon
gotoandplay
JonKaruzu
LunuLeaf
Minerscale
noops
petet
Post-retro
Sinc-X
Teuthida
themnotyou
Titan of Plasma
Tobikomi
ViLXDRYAD
Zillah


• if ur in this list u only need to give me one theme this week:

charlotte
MKSTAR26
Razerek
Savestate


send themes to mantastorm@gmail.com by THURSDAY 23:59:59 GMT (or it will count as a forfeit)

• IF U FORFEIT A ROUND (rather than simply enter a losing entry) U WILL B OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT COMPLETELY, NO LOSERS BRACKET

ok. best of luck~ post here if u got any questions lol

https://s3m.it/compo/834 CHARLOTTE v FLALCON (theme: max. four patterns for each channel, no major 7 chords)
https://s3m.it/compo/835 NOOPS v JONKARUZU (theme: sad song. 225bpm)
https://s3m.it/compo/836 RAZEREK v COSMICGEM (theme: song must occasionally have jarring dissonance. other than that, chords must entirely be sevenths)
https://s3m.it/compo/837 PETET v LUNULEAF (theme: write a song with an awesome drum solo. shld also be a song could be put into an education video, or game tutorial)

https://s3m.it/compo/838 MKSTAR26 v COMMANDYCAN (theme: reinterpret a touhou song. when you are working in a scale, ur melody must include the five notes that are *not* in the scale)
https://s3m.it/compo/839 SINC-X v TEUTHIDA (theme: you should quote an existing song. song's time signature must be entirely in prime numbers above 10)
https://s3m.it/compo/840 SAVESTATE v GOTOANDPLAY (theme: only 12.5 and 50% duty allowed for pulse channels. chords must take up all 3 channels for polyphony (so no "arps")
https://s3m.it/compo/841 TITAN OF PLASMA v (rip) (theme: a theme that will inspire u during a workout! should include at least one musical mode, that should be prevalent in the melody)

http://challonge.com/sf1wn2yw also here is the bracket i am using. also day 3 is now up! https://s3m.it

two of these matchups have a winner already (since two r disqualified), but i decided u still have to enter a song to earn ur keep. that said, if ur lunuleaf or sinc-x u can probably relax a little (also post-retro and zillah can enter if they want)

I have a suggestion. At first, I thought that the author's name appeared on the nsf because you have to enter your name when submitting your file.

Then I realized that this isn't the case: the name only appears if you input it in the corresponding "author" field in FT (or whatever tracker you're using).

My suggestion is that we leave this field empty for the next rounds, so we can have anonimous entries. This makes voting more fun and easier, don't you think?
