Nekov's Roulette pt. 4 - We have a winner
« on: August 30, 2014, 02:57:20 PM »
Time to start the fun. As I mentioned in the preliminary thread this will be an elimination roulette that will work like this: First round will be matches between participants that were randomly generate by a website (blame the internet for your match up, not me). Since we have an odd number of participants one of the groups will have 3 participants, again that group was chosen randomly by a dice (blame the dice). In case we get a last minute participant one of the members of that group will be matched up against the late runner.
You each have to send me a song that will go against the one your match up sends. The one I like best moves on, the other one gets eliminated. In the 3 person group, 2 people will move on if we don't get a late runner.
After that the remaining participants will go in a classic roulette death match. I will score songs from 1 to 10 and the lowest score each round will get eliminated. If 2 players are tied for the lowest score I'll decide who lives and who dies because this is my roulette and I am god.....
The last 2 participants will have a final match up in which they'll have to send a whole album.

All the rounds will be open so people don't start complaining about how music is not supposed to be happy and all that (you know who you are)

Here's the link to a rate your music list which has most of the bands I like. The list is not complete so you might have your song rejected even if it's not there. http://rateyourmusic.com/list/nekov/bands_i_like/

You can send grooveshark links, youtube links, other website (not spotify) links. In case none of those serve you ask for my email and send me an mp3.

Matchups for the first round

GentelmanofDread - vs - Scorpion
Seneca - vs - Lonestar
Sacul - vs - J.boy
Dr. DTVT - vs - Xenon
Adace - vs - theseoafs
King - vs - Freezingpoint
Tyrias - vs TAC
Lucien - vs - lolzeez


Good luck to everyone.

Jordan is actually DT's tax advisor. He just happens to do their taxes on stage, that's why he has that iPad there.

You're all playing for second place, bitches!

Which invariably means I'm getting eliminated first round.

Damn Nekov, I sure hope that you can participate in my next roulette. I wasn't happy when you were unavailable during my last one, but now looking at your list... You have so many great bands on your list.

I'd love to.

Only missing theseoafs. I have listened to all the songs at least once already. If he sends today I might be able to submit results before going to bed.

He hasn't been in here for a couple of days so I wouldn't hold my breath. I'll probably write everything up tonight when I get home so it won't take long after he submits.

I'm not a Roulette guy. Too much stress!  :lol
I have only participated in 3 and the only reason I did was because I was invited. And honored to be.

I did sign up for the Doc's upcoming Roulette. I guess I couldn't pass up a chance to be an official member of Team Fogey. :lol

If you have another one, give me a nudge.
