Just want to make one thing clear, I know that two of them are House, but every time there's got to be a Video Game song, no matter how much it sucks.

Ouch, bro!

I'm not sure we can blame zero bombers this week, but at the same time I didn't go into Monday with a particularly high score, so maybe I just flew under the radar. Regardless, I went comparatively unscathed; I think DST threw most of them off.

As for the games category always making it regardless of quality, I'm forced to agree despite being this week's apparent offender. It's probably one of the most popular categories in NG's tree, so it tends to get the most attention, for better or worse, and often nostalgia gives us a bi-weekly remix of some iconic song that's just awful and has no effort even put into it, which is kinda my pet peeve with the thing.

I don't find anything this week particularly offensive, though, even if nothing really calls out to me (rather amazed I'm on there with BSC as I don't think it's particularly stellar but I guess I can't complain), which is... incredibly rare. I'll take a bunch of strictly par songs over four pieces of crap hiding one decent track any week.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that your song is bad, but I am really sad that video game songs always have the best score.

Haha, s'all good! I understand. Last time I that was on the top 5 the #1 spot went to some hastily made Song of Storms remix or something and I pretty much shat rage bricks that that beat anyone at all ever. I don't mind the game songs getting up there, but I do wish they'd be of a higher quality more often than not.

This week's top songs are mostly the result of zero-bombers. I won't name anyone, but you will figure it out by yourself very easily if you check it out.

Ditto, but then, see previous statement about being under the radar. I only got one or two votes in the last few hours leading up to the cutoff, and in the end my score dropped like... .2? Something like that.

The real danger is being high scoring on a Monday night, because then everyone bum rushes you and the only counter you can have is hoping your friends have a vote in your favor to throw back, or if you're popular enough I guess fans. Lots and lots of fans.

Or like four. It kinda seems to vary from song to song and week to week.

yeah... I usually only get top5s if I tell every fan about it - except when I don't do that and I still get it

I thought I have been witnessing 0-bombing to it's full extent but this was carefully planned and ruthless. I'm sorry for you, Thief. And ofcourse everyone else suffering from this.

is that why you think it's me?? cuz i have alot of tracks in the charts?? lol you're hilarious!! i've submitted more tracks in the last 6 months than you have in the last 3 years. my tracks are current, get more votes, more plays, more downloads, and more reviews. they're all current and that's why i have 4 tracks on the all-time list right now and guess what i probably will every week even with the 0-bombers. i'm sorry Thief for the misunderstaning but really dude don't let it bring you down, your tracks are awesome...do some collabs with developers no matter how lame the game is. good luck everyone.

Meh, after awhile, just searching the boards will yield some awesome song... Kinda tired of going on the AP to ask myself "How the fk did this song get into top 5?" and you listen to songs on the boards where you hear them and wonder why they weren't on top 5...

The system is too imbalanced as it is right now... it gives people who don't deserve the spot a massive ego boost, while those who actually make legit songs suffer due to their unpopularity.

I posted 2 comments on hektik's entry (where he talks about how awesome he is for having 4 of his tracks in the top list), which he replied. Today I just find out he deleted them all. And then I learn I got zero-bombed.

He sent me very large private messages as well, to which I replied. Someone can't be so affected.

Look at this : http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 25390

This is a joke.

Hektik deserves one last chance, otherwise - since he reported himself on this forum out in the open - I would like us to report him if he keeps it up. What he's doing is wrong and is against NewGrounds' policy.

The FAQ clearly states the rankings are based upon user votes, and he wants me to believe he didn't know that.

I think the purpose of this thread is to give CONSTRUCTIVE criticism about the songs that were chosen for this week's top 5.

I don't think a thread is the proper place to start drama shit since, if you have something against a user; I think you should keep the conversations on a pm and not make it public. BUT if you think someone is abusing their voting power, you should pm an administrator. They are the only ones that can see who voting on a specific track and can actually do something about it.

We can't do shit man, not even the audio mods.

Thank you for the info. That's basically what I was trying to know. It won't happen again.

you're saying i outted myself?? you sent me a private message days ago blaming me cuz EVERYONE including myself got 0-bombed. i understand if you were expecting to be on the charts this week that you'd be pissed but really dude quit making me your target. i deleted your comments off my page because you make it look ugly with your accusations. people like my tracks, that's the end of it. good day to you sir, stay off my page if you're just gonna be a dick and 0-bomb all my tracks. also thanks for the publicity since you say i love it so :)

also Thief i don't know why you're posting links to my track Creatures Under the Bed, all i said was that it was one of NG's most popular track because of the popularity rating and cuz it's been downloaded over 15k....cuz it's in a game!!. Not alot of plays and just one review but that doesn't change the facts in my choice of words. Go get some exposure so you can find something better to do then rant and rave about me.

Believe me, a lot of video game songs don't get good ratings, I learned that the hard way many years ago when I did remixes of video game songs here.

I seem to recall that this is the case. I've seen several songs used in games that have more downloads than views.
