(an Original idea by sfar.)


Welcome to the MTF Best Song Game!

66th Edition: Open Theme


How to play?

Phase I: Send me 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, where you vote for 12 songs (see scoring format below) if there are 22-27 songs.
28-40 songs: Semi-Finals, followed by a Final containing the 10 most voted songs from each SF.
After (each part of) this phase, I 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!



Rules:

0. Anyone can participate

1. The theme of Game #66 is Open
chosen by Featherer

This means that ANY song can be entered that has not previously been entered.


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 #3. 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 from SF 1, ten songs from SF 2 and ten songs from Finals following SFs, 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. In case of SFs, 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. 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.

11. The manager has to send their votes to MWW, not later than 48 hours before the respective voting deadline (of final and semifinal), else the manager's votes will not count.

Other informations:

1. There MAY BE a musically themed interview via PM, which will be sent after the Semifinal ceremony. The answers to it will be revealed during the Final ceremony.

Re: MTF BSG #66 Open | Nominate till September 2nd 10PM GMT

:) Is my song submission accepted btw?
yes, I don't believe your song would have been submitted before, but need to check the songs used list to be sure.

When was the last time you played? :scratch

EDIT: it's fine :)

Updated the past songs and winners on post 3.

we had some pretty good games for a while though fairly smallish (19-26 players). You might likes some of the winners from that period, including my one :grin2:

I miss Vukie a lot especially when he's screaming at you but I don't think he'll come back :sad:
At least we got to see his beautiful butt before he left. Thanks Ace Pounder.

I got a song comin.

Hosting at the start of the U.S. Open is a bad time, as is August. Typically people are busier around this time.
