Boy did we collectively screwed up this round  :lol I sucked badly and all things considered I'm one of those who gained the most! at this point I'm pumped for the end!  :metal
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Damn making the order matter this much makes for very little points. I got 0 points because the second and third are swapped :p

Yeah, as I said, I don't think this system works well. :lol But it's too late to change anything now.

Whatevs... it was a fun/interesting way to try and keep things interesting, and keep people involved - even if four of them bailed out.  Kudo's to you to try and do something innovative and different Ruslan.

Yeah, all is good. I wasn't complaining just observing. And I was one of the few who got some points out of it.

nah it's not too late since this is the first round you used this system & if you think it sucks you can change it  :corn
but yeah i feel like it's almost impossible to get points in any of the finals rounds so i'll lose anyways  :metal

It's basically first round out of three. I think it's too late.

On the other hand, someone who figured it out from the beginning could say "I predicted the top three months ago and I get the same points as someone who adjusts at the end?"... it's Evermind's survivor and he created the rules as he saw fit, I'll just go along with them  :tup

More people need to have this attitude. One of the main things that's holding me back from hosting another tournament here is having to answer questions like "Why are you doing it this way?" I have no answers apart from "This is how I'm doing it". It's frustrating at times.

I'm having huge problems with logging in on DTF, to the point I can't log in on some days at all. But yeah, as I wrote you on FB, I've got your predictions.
