Autumn Dance Challenge Wrap Up and Results
« on: May 03, 2011, 02:17:48 AM »
Sunday saw the return of DanceDanceRevolution competition for 2011, and we are pleased to say that ADC was a success! It was great to see some new faces, and the improved turnout allowed the Difficult Division go ahead, ensured a complete Expert Division, and saw solid involvement in all of our bonus events. We were even treated to a performance or two at the end of the day!

While competitors worked hard in the Difficult and Expert Score Attack divisions, bonus events like Marvelous Attack and Expert Double Score attack provided a more social challenge, and Good Attack, Stepcharts, and the Team Relay 'Sports Edit' event let players see the fun side of DDR.

We did run into some issues with the panel in the middle of the competition. However, staff were on-hand and the matter was resolved to the best of their ability, allowing the competition to continue. We apologise to anyone affected by the problem, and hope all competitors were able to enjoy the event.

Team Ranking Task-Force would like to thank everyone who came along on the day - competitors, spectators, staff and friends. Everyone got into the spirit of the event, and we hope everyone had fun.

Most rewarding of all was the laughter and cheers during the bonus events. Our competitions can only happen with the support of the players, and hopefully ADC left everyone with something to tell their friends, and will encourage them to join us at our next competition.

Congratulations to our winners, who all received prizes of bonus credit on their Timezone Powerclub card. Full results will be posted in the thread below.

We hope to have details to announce for our next competition soon, and look forward to seeing you all there! In the meantime, if you have any feedback on this competition, or would just like to chat with the other competitors, please add your thoughts to the thread below as well.

Autumn Dance Challenge Results

Firstly, an explanation of our scoring system.

The scoring method we currently use is based on a system created by one of the original Japanese DDR teams, in response to Konami-run DDR competitions that used machine score. At the time, machine score had no real correlation to step accuracy, and was not seen as a 'true' measure of a player's skill.

This system has been modified as game systems changed, and currently assigns point values to each accuracy grade as follows:
Marvellous    Perfect    Great    Good    Almost    Boo    OK    N.G
01234505

Therefore, the player with the lowest score is the most accurate.

Now, on to the competition!



Difficult Score Attack

With a field of 5 competitors, the decision was made to proceed with the Difficult division in a reduced format, with 1 elimination Round, and a Final with the top 4 scores.

Stepcharts - 1 song, Basic difficulty, Hidden arrows, 3x scroll speed, players read steps from printed stepcharts.

Note: The machine stops counting steps once the song has been failed, so scores will seem lower. Step counts have been shown to identify people who failed the songs. Correct step count: 157

Team Relay - Sports Festival Edit

This was a specially-created edit from GurtyGurt, in the style of the Sports Festivals run at RTF competitions under H.Edward@RTF in the past. The edit is split into sections, with 2-bar breaks in between, and players must swap on and off the machine between sections.

This edit was broken into 7 sections:
  • Jumps
  • Skip Spins
  • Rapid Up-Down Jumps
  • Hold Arrow Spins
  • Left-Right and Up-Down Runs
  • Off-Timing Steps
  • Jumps with Hold Arrow finale

Competitors were divided into teams of 5 as follows:
Team Afro     
Chino
Kayus
Zac
Guru
Chris
Team Baby-Lon 
Kylie
Shannon
Gareth
Pascal
EBE
Team Emi       
Tristan
Steve
Hiro
Gurt
Raph

Apologies if I got any of the names wrong, I'm trying to read other people's handwriting out of my notepad ;D

Please tell us if you had fun with these events, or have any suggestions on how we can make them better.

While many of us find the competitive aspects of DDR fun, there are many who feel they cannot compete at a high-enough level, or simply don't enjoy it in the same way. We'd like to provide these fun side-events to help those players still be a part of our events, as well as giving competitors some time between rounds to relax and socialise with other players.

Bar the bad stuff that happened, pretty good tournament

Only have one request for the next tournament, discussed and decided by myself Lac and Wendy:

Inclusion of Oni for finalist songs
Quote from: B1uEM4oM4o
however tbh it just isn't good enough. you cant argue with this, players like me, dan, kevin etc. who are all a lot better than you all agree with this. we all get smeg and it's really annoying. Dan gets pad greats like crazy. I dont even bother maing there, its a waste

Loved the side competitions, dare I say even more so than the main event. As I was saying before, I don't expect to win. I enter to support the community and try to be social. The side events helped give me plenty more reason to enter. Without a doubt. For those expert players who don't AA or AAA songs, they're undoubtedly in the same boat, so those extra events were a fantastic idea for those who don't expect to win the main event but can have a bit of fun by mixing things up. Kudos to whoever thought of that, it was in my opinion, one of the best additions to the event.

The problems with the pad were unfortunate, but couldn't be helped. Attempts were made to fix the pad by people who knew what they were doing and the pad continued to malfunction (only to seemingly work properly after we'd just about given up... of course...) in a situation like that, what can you do? Having everyone play on the same pad was an option being considered toward the end, which would have had the effect of making the competition run for longer than it already did. Otherwise, playing on the malfunctioning pad, there's no real 'fair'  way to adjust for the errors. It was a tough situtation to be in and short of summoning a whole other working machine, everyone handled the situation the best they could, given the circumstances.

I wish there had been a bit more to encourage the newer players. While I noticed all the established players did well or ranked in the middle, it was the newest players; the ones we are possibly wanting to encourage; who ranked dead last bottom. Both in Standard and in Expert. Now I know this makes sense, but the newer players seemed a little dejected after going up against old farts like us and not doing as well. In both cases, they'd been playing less than a year. Got not suggestions here, but just throwing it out there, maybe there's a way to help the newer players that we're trying to encourage to feel less dejected.

Other than that, get a laptop, Ebe. :P

You did awesomely.

I agree it would be good to encourage new players, but I don't really know how - I would feel kind of mocked if I was encouraged just because I was new and not as good as other people....I would just try my best to get better.

If we had a lower and a higher bracket Wendy would deliberately try to place in the lower one again. I can understand anyone else wanting Oni though.

I'll post the Buddha photos later, as it's not the comp proper.  Listening to internet radio right now and I should be in bed.
