Hello and welcome to the third edition of my roulette!

Foreword

Iíve ran two of these before, in 2015 and 2016, and both were a lot of fun for meóand hopefully for the participants tooóand Iíve discovered a lot of incredible music thanks to you guys. A lot of people who still frequent GMD board and play roulettes were there for my second one, as we had something close to 18 players, later culled down to 12. Now that three years have passed since that, there are a lot of new faces on DTF and in the roulette crowd as well, and I hope you guys will give this one a shot.

That being said, Iíve learned a few lessons from those two roulettes. Last time especially, I was a little too nice to a lot of songs I didnít end up quite digging, and ended up not quite using a full scale of scoringóprobably being too excited for this thing happening so fast after the first one (for those who donít remember, in 2014/2015 you had to wait for the best part of the year to get to your turn running one of these). The themed rounds were perhaps a little too specific, too.

Roulette Structure and Explanation

Despite the issues above, I felt that format was good, and I didnít want to modify it too much. The most important part is that Iíll have to be stricter on the songs this time. I feel like this wonít be that much of a problem on my end, but you should know this beforehand. Because of this, thereís no point to compare your song scores with the first two roulettes. I know there was a running joke that anything thatís equal 7.5 and above was ďgoodĒ, but truth is, almost all the songs ended up getting up 7.5 and above last time. Iíll work on that this time. Which basically means, as Chad is fond of saying, get your big boy pants on and don't be offended with the scores.

Still, there were some problems with the format too. I remember being a bit too music-fatigued for Rounds 5 and 7 (and with the preliminary rounds in last roulette, that made them 7 and 9 respectfully), as they were open and Round 5 also allowed people to send longer songs. To fix this, Iím going to use an optional theme-system for each round of the main competition except the first two; eliminate the rounds with longer length-limits and introduce the special abilities thing which will give people some options; and the final part of the roulette will be changed to the play-off system, which may not be entirely fair, but at least itís quite interesting to watch and, hopefully, to host. Hereís how itís going to work in detail, and if youíre too lazy, you can skip this part to the shorter explanation below that (not recommended):

0. Sign-ups

Everyone is welcome to sign-up and play. That means if we get 20 players in the first round, so be it. I donít really want to turn anyone away, and Iím always bummed when Iím too late to secure a spot in a roulette I really wanted to play in.

Important: the sign-ups will be open until Saturday evening (February 2nd, let's say 11 P.M. GMT).

1. Culling Rounds

The general idea behind those is that I wonít be able to handle 20 players, give or take, for the whole duration of the rouletteóthatís simply too much music for me. I commend people who are doing album roulettes, but I donít think I can digest such a huge amount of content in a week. Unlike my second roulette, this time everyone starts their roulette journey here. There are two culling rounds, and after the second round, the players with the lowest scores are eliminated until only 12 players remain in the competition.

Twist: several invited players will have immunity from being eliminated at this point. Those are either the people I trust enough to know our musical tastes align well, or the people who Iíd like to surprise me with the music theyíre into. The way the immunity will work depends on the number of players:

-   if there are 15 players or fewer, people who have immunity canít be eliminated after Round 2; the person next to them on the scoreboard is eliminated instead (the amount of players in Round 3 canít be higher than 12);
-   if there are 16 or more players, people who have immunity canít be eliminated after Round 2 (see above), unless they are in the bottom 3 of the scoreboard, in which case theyíre out anyway, immunity be damned;

The scores received in the Culling Rounds will still be counted towards you final score. The players who have immunity donít know who else has it, and no one knows the exact number of immunity PMs I sent out. That means itís in your best interests to impress the hell out of me in the first two rounds, just in case the person below you on the scoreboard is immune to elimination.

2. Main Competition

After the eliminations are done, 12 players remain to compete in the roulette. The main competition features five rounds. The rounds are essentially open with a fixed length-limit. However, there will be optional themes provided for each round. After Round 7, the players with the lowest scores are eliminated until only 8 players remain in the competition. Obviously, immunity for the previous eliminations doesnít work here.

Themes: You can choose to participate in the theme for each particular round. The highest scoring themed song in each round will get an additional point to its score.

3. Play-offs

This is where you face each other. Each round has a specific format to it, which will be explained in a bit. The previous scores factor into the seeding (the 1st place is matched against the 8th place, and so on). The winner of each match-up proceeds to the next round, unless only one participant remains triumphant.



Hereís the short version of whatís written above, with the length limits and optional themes and scoring for each round:

Sign-ups: free for all, everyone who joins before the deadline is in

Culling Rounds:

Round 1: Open Round (length limit: 10 minutes)
Round 2: Open Round (length limit: 10 minutes)

Elimination point: 12 highest-scored players remain, except that may not be quite the case (read the Twist part in section 1)

Main Competition:

Round 3: Open Round w/ optional theme: songs from 2018 (length limit: 10 minutes)
Round 4: Open Round w/ optional theme: ballads (length limit: 10 minutes)
Round 5: Open Round w/ optional theme: songs from before I was born (anything up to February 1993) (length limit: 10 minutes)
Round 6: Open Round w/ optional theme: songs with lead female vocals (length limit: 10 minutes)
Round 7: Open Round w/ optional theme: songs with substantial amount of growls (length limit: 10 minutes)

Play-offs

Round 8: Greatest Hits Round (read below)
Round 9: EP Round (read below)
Round 10: Album Round (read below)



Round Details and Scoring

Rounds 1 Ė 7 will be scored out of 10. During Rounds 3 Ė 7, you will be able to get bonus points if you send the best themed song in each Round (1 point for each best song). The scores reset after Round 7, affecting your seeding in the play-offs, and then reset after each Round (classic play-off system)

Round 8 requires each one of 8 remaining participants to send a number of songs from the same band, essentially making it a Greatest Hits compilation. The idea is shamelessly stolen from Puppiesí roulette, only I donít want it to be too long, so the requirements for this are as follows: all songs should be by the same band, the minimum length of the compilation is 30 minutes, the length limit is 50 minutes, and the songs should come from at least three different albums.

Round 9, aka EP Round, requires each one of 4 remaining participants to make an EP for me. You have to use at least three different artists, and each one should at least feature one full ďsongĒ (intros and outros doesnít count). The minimum length is 30 minutes, the length limit is 40 minutes, as it seems to be standard now. Each EP will be scored out of 20. The flow matters greatly here and will be scored separately out of 5. Stealing this mechanic from Puppies and adapting it for the elimination system, the best EP name from each pair of contestants will earn you an additional 1 point (could be just how the name rolls off the tongue or if itís tied to some storyóin other words, itís simply the matter which one Iíll like more).

Round 10, aka the Album Round, requires the two remaining participants each to participate in this Best of 3 competition. You have to send three albums for me, either one at a time, or all three in a bunch, specifying the order. The first albums from both of you will clash against each other, and the one I like better will earn you a point. Then the second albums will do the same. Whoever wins two of these album battles, wins the whole roulette (standard Best of 3 system). The length limit for this round is 80 minutes. The albums will be scored out of 10.

Tastes

Well, a good way to measure my tastes is to look at my recent Top 50 list of DTF discoveries (also included in ďRelevant linksĒ at the end of my post, as well as my first Top 50). But hereís a quick rundown of my favourite bands as of last few years for you if you donít want to check the Top 50 lists. Draw your own conclusions:

Progressive metal: Ayreon, Beyond the Bridge, Haken, Leprous, Seventh Wonder

Power metal: Avantasia, Kamelot (up to Silverthorn), Blind Guardian, Helloween, Sonata Arctica (up to The Days of Grays, also Pariahís Child isnít that bad too)

Classic metal / hard rock: Rainbow (Dio material and 1995, not big on JLT), Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Primal Fear

Progressive rock: Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson, Riverside, IQ, Karmakanic, Phideaux

Older progressive rock: Jethro Tull, Marillion (not a big fan of Rush, Genesis or King Crimson)

Acoustic stuff which could also be progressive rock: Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits, Arstidir, Bjorn Riis, iamthemorning

Growls: Agalloch, Opeth, Insomnium, Ne Obliviscaris, Amorphis

Special Abilities

When you receive your PM from me, you also receive your "set" of special abilities. The "set" will usually consist of one or two of them, and you will probably be able to only use one. I won't disclose the actual things the abilities do, although you're welcome to do it in the thread should you so desire. But here are the names:

Time Shift
Alter Reality
Sympathizer
Raise Hell
Steven Wilson's Wave of Depression
Ragequit Generator
Invincible
You Like it Long
Wordsmith
Fall Apart


Those are meant to be a fun addition to the game (well, except the one that grants immunity, which was already written into these rules, so there's that). They may give you an advantage once during the roulette, but that's it: most of these abilities are only usable once.

Other Rules and Information

-   Best method of submission is to either provide a file or a YouTube link for the song; failing that, give me the songís name and Iíll look it up. Do not use Spotify which requires me to use VPN which in turn screws up my mobile phone traffic usage;
-   Anything scoring 7 and higher is banned for the rest of roulette;
-   Songs (or albums in case of Round 10) by the same band is allowed, but they have to be different ones; reserving bands for future rounds isnít allowed;
-   Everyone has one or two special abilities described in your PM. I tried to make them fun and not gamebreaking, but weíll see how it goes;
-   The special abilities can overrule the rules written in this thread. If in doubt, ask the questions either in thread or via PM;
-   I will confirm your participation (and send out your special abilities) via PM. You might have to wait a day for a PM as I'm not very active here when I'm on my phone;
-   I probably forgot a bunch of stuff, so I will be adding it as we go along.

Come on, it's not that bad. Fairly sure Puppies had more bands on his list.


-   reserving bands for future rounds isnít allowed;
This rule is definitely because of me  :biggrin:

That said, I'm totally in, if you'll have me. :corn

There's also a special ability that's there because of you. :biggrin:

That's 10 people in already, looks good. :tup I'll send out the PMs this evening.

I fear that I might end up sending the same stuff I've sent in other roulettes and I don't want to be 'that guy'  :lol but since you called me out I'm obliged to. Game on! Ready to get the boot.

I've never done this and after seeing the banned list I have only boring music left to send, but if you will have me, I'm ready to play the first two rounds.

Glad to have you in one of these.  You might just surprise yourself once you really start comparing your library against the banned list (and this goes for Katt too).  There's invariably 10 excellent bands/songs in your grasp that aren't banned.

I don't have time and am kind of over roulettes but fuck it.  No thought will be going into this but count me in.

Yes, it's all stupid banter. When I play, I play to win, so beware.   ;)

And, at least for me, playing in roulettes often makes me rediscover awesome stuff I hadn't listened to in a while, especially when all the obvious choices are already banned.

In theory, I'm not opposed to the songs in different languages. Something like this is great:

ŃrstŪūir - SŪūasta kveūjan

However, if I happen to not like your song, the non-English language may work against it. Overall though, I haven't had enough experience with songs in other languages to really say. It may work, it may not. I definitely would listen to them though.

Working on those PMs now.

All 14 people signed up so far should have their PMs in. While the signups are still open, you can already submit for the first round if you feel like it. The official start of the Round 1 is on Saturday while we're waiting for other participants.

Ostura and Pyramaze were added to the banned list, thanks Chad.
