Round two go!
Song selection will include all RB (excluding Run to the Hills and Enter Sandman) and RB2 songs. The following DLC songs will also be included:
- Joker and the Thief
Selection will be done draft style. Bands will gather around a table and be given an envelop containing cards with song names written on them. Each band will chose one song card from their envelope and pass the rest to the band to their right. This process will be repeated until all songs are chosen and each band has constructed their deck of songs. Depending on the number of bands registered, there will be one to four additional people (not in bands) choosing songs at random throughout the draft in order to create an extra song deck for tiebreakers.
Rounds will consist of three songs, one chosen by each band from their song deck with a tiebreaking song chosen at random from extra songs deck. First band to win two songs wins the round. In the extremely unlikely event of a tie, songs will be chosen at random from the extra songs deck until one band wins two songs.
If you have any questions about this process, please let me know. I believe it will create an additional layer of metagaming as well as ensure that each song is played no more than once during the tournament.
No using XYAB on drums.
Personal equipment recommended, custom equipment requires approval from me.
No cheating through the vocals; you know what I mean. Make an honest effort.
Bands must be made of 3 or 4 people. All four instruments must be played. May play on any difficulty.
Be present when your opponents are playing. This is just good sportsmanship.
Do not leave the store if you are still in the tournament. If you are called, you forfeit.
