Elite's Roulette v3: It's Over. - Final Results!
« on: March 23, 2015, 03:00:18 AM »
Yesterday evening I got the notification that apparently another year has passed and it's my turn to do a roulette again. Now, anyone who knows me a little has probably seen that I have been a little less active on the forums the last couple of months and that's because life can sometimes catch up with you. I try however to keep up with everything that's happening here as well.

In the last year I have been in roulettes myself though and I have seen numerous posts were I was the last person to send in a round. If I'm right, I think I should send a song to Big Hath right now as well, as I'm probably the last there as well :lol Please don't see this as some kind of disinterest from my part, it's just that I sometimes forget to check the forums, because I'm busy doing other things. But now it's your chance to get back at me!

The contestants:
I sent a PM to everyone whose roulette I was in this last year, so they can join in and send me music, as well as to jingle.boy who won my last one. I'll have three open spots, of which I want to give out one to lonestar, so he can maybe even up his score on the roulette rankings some more. I haven't had him in a roulette yet, so if he's willing to play, that would be nice.

That said, I'll have the following people:

- Tom Bombadil
- Sacul
- senecadawg2
- Scorpion
- Big Hath
- FlyingBIZKIT
- jingle.boy
- lonestar
- Evermind
- Nihil-Morari
- Dr. DTVT

(Red means unconfirmed as of yet)

Past roulettes:
Then, here's a couple of links to my two previous roulettes.
Roulette 1: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=34217.0
Roulette 2: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=38570.0

What to send:
In the OP of roulette 1 there's a huge list of what you can not send. It might be easier though to just check my last.fm. There's a lot in there, there's also a lot not in there. If I know whatever you're sending, I'll ask for something else. There's no foolproof way of sending me stuff.

How to send:
You can either PM me through DTF or send me an e-mail (PM me for e-mail address). I prefer Spotify links, or just the artist/title/album combination so I can look things up myself. Please for the sake of being able to listen to everything, do not send anything that's longer than 10 minutes.

The rules:
I decided to take the same approach as with my last roulette, since that worked pretty well. I will have 7 rounds. All of them will be open. Scoring will not go in the traditional way, but like in my second roulette (look back there to see how it worked). In every round, people will be eliminated based on which song I liked least. The first round however, is free for everyone to get a taste of what kind of music I like.

In round 2, two people will be eliminated.
In round 3, two people will be eliminated.
In every subsequent round, one person will be eliminated up to a final round between the two last standing.

Sign me up!
Sure! I give a slight precedence to all the people mentioned above, but if any of them can't or don't want to play right now, that slot can be filled by anyone else. I would also prefer people whose name I have seen on the boards before. Not to be an asshole, but I like having an idea of who is behind the song they're sending. Last two places are open, the other 8 are reserved for the time being until they either confirm or opt out.

Now what?
Now we wait until all 10 slots have been filled in. Then we'll start this roulette!

You're all in! One spot came free, due to Bizkit not playing right now. Who will join as the tenth contestant?

To everybody who's playing, you may start sending your songs :) as stated in the OP, I prefer Spotify links or the artist/title/album combination, so I can look it up myself. You can send songs through PM, e-mail or any other way in which you can contact me personally. There's one spot left open, which I hope will be filled up soon. This last person may also send his/her song immediately.

Hope all is clear and I'm looking forward to hearing your music.

Just to be sure, the first round doesn't affect the other rounds at all, right?

is there any kind of cutoff for how many times you've listened to an artist according to last.fm?

Not really, but if it doesn't have many plays, I probably won't know the artist very well - if at all. Then again, my last.fm isn't really that accurate, as there are probably loads of songs that I do know that aren't featured there. Your best guess would be to send a song and check whether that's ok with me. The last.fm, as well as my last two roulette are guidelines, but nothing's set in stone.

That said, I already had to reject one song in the first round, but that's all set now. I'm just missing submission by both Toms and Nihil.

Wait a second, am I missing something? Is there some sort of direction you want to first one in? Or is round one just a random track?

It's also a useful round to test his tastes because it will have no repercussions or anything on your further progress in the roulette, so we may send some weird shit we wouldn't send him otherwise. :lol

I didn't do it though. :biggrin:

Yes, we are playing! Results on Friday, most likely. I'm sorry for taking so long, there was quite some stuff that happened to me during this last week. I do not foresee many difficulties for future rounds, so I suppose I can do a round a week, or even faster.
