This tournament is to find out which song we Rock Band fans want the most as DLC. The tournament will feature some of the greatest artists going against each other. It will travel through all the many genres picking out the best artists and their best songs to determine once and for all which song is Rock Band's Most Wanted! Below is a run-down of the tournament's structure and rules.
Band Qualifying Round:
The Rock Band's Most Wanted Tournament has several rounds. The Qualifying round is for selecting the Top 96 bands as voted on by all of us. The way a band qualifies is by receiving 20 points. Once it reaches the 20 point mark, it has officially qualified. I will take the band off the list and post it in the post right below this one to show people not to vote for it anymore and to show that it has qualified. Each person has 5 points to give to their band per day, so choose wisely. After the Qualifying Round comes the Song Selection Round.
Song Selection Qualifying Round:
The Song Selection Round directly follows the Qualifying Round. The purpose of this round is to select the Top 3 songs for each of the 96 bands (If anyone cares, that would be a total of 288 songs). Each band will have their own voting window. The first band on the list will be in the first voting window. The second band will in be the second voting window and etc. Once a band has finished in its voting window, the next one will immediately begin. It works almost entirely the same as for the Band Qualifying Round. Each person has 3 points per day, but instead of awarding them to your favorite band, you award them to a song by the band currently in the voting window. Once a song has 20 points, it will be added as one of the 3 songs for that artist. Once every band has 3 songs, we move on to the Song Elimination Round.
Song Elimination Round:
The Song Elimination Round is where we narrow down the Top 3 songs for each band down to just the best song. Instead of 3 points per day, you now may only recieve 1 point to award. It will remain 1 point for the remainder of the tournament. Again, the first band will be in the first voting window, etc. Once that song receives 20 points, that song will be officially entered into the tournament as one of the Top 96. This will continue until there is one song for each band. The next round is the start of the Rock Band's Most Wanted Tournament (I will start a new thread for Round 1 and past).
Round 1 is basically where the Top 96 is chopped down by 67%. The bands will face the gauntlet one on one. The first song to reach 20 points will advance to Round 2. Remember, you will only have 1 point to award. Once all 32 groups of 2 battle, the Top 32 will enter into Round 2 and Beyond!
The way to win is to, again, receive 20 points. At the end of Round 2, 32 will become 16. Round 3 will end up with 8, Round 4 with 4, and Round 5 with 2. This leads into the Final Round.
The Final Round will feature the Top 2 songs going face to face. Each person still receives 1 vote per day, but instead of having 20 points to win, a song must receive 35 points. The song that receives 35 votes first will be Rock Band's Most Wanted.
