(an Original idea by sfar.)


MTF BSG 55th Edition 에 오신 것을 환영합니다 !




게임 방법?

Phase I: Send the Fearless Leader a song via PM (preferably a YouTube link) before the deadline specified in the thread's title.
When this phase ends, the list of songs will be posted, without revealing which song was selected by whom.

Phase II: Vote for your favourite songs via PM.
<28 songs: Direct Final.
28-40 songs: Semi-Finals, followed by a Final containing the 10 most voted songs from each SF.
After (each part of) this phase, the Fearless Leader will reveal the votes, the points tally, and the player behind each song. After the SF, only the eliminated songs will be revealed.

The song with the most points wins!


규칙들:

1. The theme of this edition is Asia. For your submission to qualify the artist must be asian. In case of a band or a song featuring multiple artists, a majority rule applies, meaning your song will qualify if the majority of band members or artists are asians. Asian Russia is excluded from the competition as russkies play for Europe.

2. You cannot send a song selected in a previous edition. One of the purposes of this game is to discover new music. For a list of the previously selected songs, check Post #2. A different version of the same song performed by a different artist/band is allowed.

3. If the same song is sent by 2+ different players, the 2nd+ will be asked to choose another one.

4. You have to vote for exactly ten songs, in order of preference, according to the following format:

Code:
12 points: favourite song
10 points: 2nd favourite song
 8 points: 3rd favourite song
 7 points: 4th favourite song 
 6 points: ...
 5 points: ...
 4 points: ...
 3 points: ...
 2 points: ...
  1 point: 10th favourite song
In case of Direct Finals with 22-27 songs, you have to vote for twelve songs in this format:

Code:
14 points: favourite song
12 points: 2nd favourite song
10 points: 3rd favourite song
 9 points: 4th favourite song
 8 points: ...
 7 points: ... 
 6 points: ...
 5 points: ...
 4 points: ...
 3 points: ...
 2 points: ...
  1 point: 12th favourite song
5. You cannot vote for your own song.

6. Eliminated semifinalists can and should vote in the Final.

7. You are allowed to change your submission twice, and your votes once!

8. If you do not vote, your song will receive penalty points, depending on the situation: 3 points in the semifinals if you only vote in the half in which your song is featured, 12 points if you don't vote in your SF or Final. In case of Direct Finals with 22-27 songs, the penalty is 14 points.

9. If 2 or more songs are tied in points, the tie is broken according to the following:
- a song that has received a penalty loses the tie to a song that didn't;
- the song with most top points received wins the tie; if still tied the number of 2nd highest points received is compared and so on until the tie is broken (or not);
- random.org

10. As a show of fair play, the Fearless Leader will not introduce the votes of its citizens into the spreadsheet before he casts his own.

11. The winner of the current edition can either choose a theme or propose several for the other players to discuss. If the winner does not want to exercise his right, the community will come up with a theme. In any case, all players are allowed to make suggestions.

Failing to comply with any of the aforementioned rules will be punished by starvation.

Re: BSG#55 Asian Music || Submit your song till October 11, 7PM CEST

''For your submission to qualify the artist must be asian.''

What is the exact rule here, same as the Africa edition (must be born in Asia)?

Re: BSG#55 Asian Music || Submit your song till October 11, 7PM CEST

You stupid, Papua New Guinea and Australia are 100% Oceania, even my citizens know that.
are you turning into a troll now, Redshift? all this dragging and now this?

there are borderline countries that need to be mentioned in the theme description!

there's no universal definition for Asia.
Oceania and Asia are often not even separated. the PapuaNewGuinea case is not so important (but no need to exclude it).
important is to take a decision - which the theme chooser did.
could you already add it to the theme description.


...for rephrasing the Africa rule was no need either. :rolleyes:

So many options.

Most of which @Roger the Dodger will hate :aplot:
If you're sending any Indian classical, then expect points - but expect competition from snootsville there.

are you turning into a troll now, Redshift? all this dragging and now this?
He is a troll but a slow-moving troll; trolls at a glacial speed.

(Sorry, mighty dictator - this is my only trespass. I am sure your rule will be good and the peasants happy)

Yeah, I assumed you would be kind to Indian classical. But you wouldn't be so kind to Indian pop/Bollywood.

Iirc, I haven't submitted any Bollywood song before ( not counting the acoustic cover of Galliyan, since it wasn't the original that I submitted).

What do you think about this one:



I didn't care for it much when I saw the movie. But it grew on me later. Both S and me love the song now.
Would have been my first choice for submitting, but there isn't a great version on YouTube. (The above version has lots of annoying talking during the song. The versions without the extra talking don't contain the whole song).

No, just needs to have asian nationality.

Insolent! Russia is the only borderline country JMG does not accept. All the other borderline countries are accepted. Papua New Guinea not being borderline is naturally not accepted.

Oceania and Asia are often not even separated.
Did you learn this in a South Korean school? :lol:

I've been hibernating for 6 years, I'm rusty, just wait for me to peak again, Rogel Fedelel style.

Hello :bigwave:

This is an unofficial invite to join us here at the Best Song Game. I've tagged you here because, for some reason, I've seen that you're still posting in the non-tennis section of MTF. You are therefore helping to keep this place alive :worship:

It's all fairly straightforward. You send a YouTube link of a song that complies with the theme (Asian music, in this case) to the manager. All songs are then anonymously revealed and you vote for your favourite within the deadline. The rules are in the first post, and if you have any questions, @MWW will be delighted to answer them. You can participate in this thread itself as much or as little as you'd like.

Please sign up and help keep this game going!

Why? You are most welcome in the DPRK. Your skills as a strategist are very appreciated here.
