Ngadm '12: Round 3 2012-09-05 12:19:06 Reply

After much anticipation, I present to you the Round 3 thread of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch (NGADM). Never heard of the NGADM? Go here. Signing up isn't advisable, considering the Sign Ups closed over a month ago. This thread marks the end of Round 2 and the beginning of Round 3.

The scores list below contains a list of all the pairings of Round 2, each judge's score on the individual submissions, and the winner of the pairing. This round had some purely amazing submissions, and the general overall quality of submissions was higher than that of Round 1 in most regards. The Bosa vs RampantMusik pairing was a very close pairing, with only 0.03 points difference in the averages.

After those scores, during the 2 weeks of Round 3, the judges will be working on posting reviews on your submissions' Newgrounds pages. These reviews will explain the scores you were given and will appear whenever the judges finish them (some are already finished!), so keep an eye out for the incoming reviews!

But first, rules:

1.) Do NOT ask why you were given a particular score in this thread. The review will be posted on your song in due time. If you've got something to say to a particular judge, do it via PM.

2.) Please wait until everything is posted before posting yourself. By everything, I mean results and pairings. It may take up more than one post.

3.) Any Round 3 submissions go in this thread. Do not use older threads.

4.) PMs will be sent notifying everyone of this thread. If you have already seen this thread and then receive a PM, disregard what it says in the PM.

5.) Read the RULES again. You never know, you might have missed something.

Also, thanks to RampantMusik for compiling an ongoing song list and Artist-Lost once again for making the fantastic logo you see below. Seriously, check out his art and perhaps give it a review! He really does deserve it.

Also, thanks to Breed, Step, Buoy, BrokenDeck, Back-From-Purgatory and SkyeWintrest for working very hard on judging your submissions and driving everyone nuts in the Round 2 thread. I will be scoring OpenLight's track for this round as Breed forgot to hand in that particular score.

And now, the results! Remember, don't post till everything is posted!

If you made it through, congratulations and good luck in Round 3! If you didn't, then at least find SOME comfort in the fact that making it this far is already a massive achievement! For those who made it through, your deadline is 19th of September at 11:59 PM NG Time. The full schedule can be found here. If you spot any mistakes above, please let me know!

Also, I'd like to stress not to ask for reviews or ask/complain about why you got a particular score in this thread. Back-From-Purgatory is watching you all like a very vengeful ghost from limbo, and will delete any posts that violate the rules!

And that's it! Posting can now commence.

So I realized that I accidentally skipped openlight basically as Echo posted up results. Just incase youre wondering, I gave it a 6 which doesnt change the results at all.

You don't have to! lol

I think I'm having a sweatdown right now. I may need to lie down for a while. But, at least I have more time to finish up a song. I might actually be able to pull out my secret weapon this time (last round I was going to, but couldn't).

Also, where is Rampant's submission?

Haha I can't wait to hear that. You've been just about making it past each round; I have no idea what the turnout will be for this round.

Also, where is Rampant's submission?

I was going to go fetch a link to it and say "right here, silly" but it appears it's deleted :(. I've got the review all ready for him and I can't post it now.

I was telling my brother that there was no way I'd make it to the top ten. Probably not even the top 16. I'm very relieved and happy regardless of what happens from here on.

Competing with camoshark will definitely be my hardest match up yet. :o

Good luck to the remaining contestants!

I feel I'll have to step up my game like never before, but I feel honored to have the occasion of proving my worth against those to which I hold the highest of esteem.

Good luck to you too, as to everyone in the remaining eight!

wow yay made it! good show blackhole12, it was a close one!
looking back at my tune, and listening to it on the buss today on the way home, i found it really predictable, stale and boring. and the way i used the basslines and structured my melodies reminds of my music from 2008. and i had this urgent feeling of "oh crap, this is not gonna do at all" so lol, glad i made it in! i will definatly break my own limits this time around and make something ive never done before, and settle for nothing less than perfect.

congrats to the winners, and
Good luck everyone!

its on, MainStreamBeats :D

While I was worried about TD6D in Round 1, I was much, much more confident in my abilities when I went up against NeXsard in Round 2. This has been such a wonderful opportunity so far, and win or lose this round, I'm ready to take it to the next level.

Hey don't look at it that way. If that was the case you wouldn't have been chosen among the top 32 from almost 200 artists.

I haven't reviewed your track yet but I'll have you know I think it's a big improvement from your Round 1 track. Your new approach to making music seriously worked well. And to be honest we need more metal in the NGADM. Please come back :c.

But yeah haha great job making it this far.
