The announcement post is almost ready to be released..... and there are some surprises, for the judges as well.

Oh there will be drama, for there are casualties! I wish everyone got into the finals, but alas, there are only 8 spots available!

Huge congrats to the top 8, you guys are so deserving of it. There were some amazing pieces entered, once I heard some of the other submissions I knew that it was going to be a close one. Now all we can do is wait for the final verdict...

Congrats to the final 8, I'm not very surprised I couldn't make it as all the submissions were really, really good. This contest really brought out some of the best orchestral music I've heard on this site. Personally, I'll be studying you guys to see how I can improve.

Man, fuck you guys...
lmao! No, I'm totally kidding. I would have loved to place top 8 but like everyone's been saying, the competition was really, really fierce.
I still love how the piece came out though, so having participated was definitely worth it. Win/Win situation. ^__^

Also in light of quarl's joking outburst in the new NAC thread, any breaking of the rules WILL result in your disqualification.

that goes for dubstep renditions in ANY NAC. You're all perfectly capable of doing other genres, if you wanna have a dubstep contest, make one yourself ;)
the same goes for any other retarded genres that only serve to further corrode the music world. melody over noise.
dnb is ok though. Dubstep actualyl put it into a favourable light.

perhaps.. I suppose I cannot prevent peopel from doing dubstep remixes - however consider the fact that we are judging based on an overall oldschool theme for this NAC thus doing a dubstep mix probably tre you high points.

*won't score you high points.. ugh what is wrong with this keyboard..

maybe we'll have a dubstep one in future. However i'd prefer that to be a secondary NAC and not a main one.

exactly symbolcymbal.

also as a result If you arent over 20 you cannot be a judge for this contest - due to the natore uf the contest we need people who are actualyl old enough to have been immersed in the oldschool gaming world. This may prove difficult though as I am sure those people mightthemselves want to enter. Still, I'm sure we'll find peeps. I got some connections in the vg portal.
