Ngadm Final Results! Oct. 23rd, 2012 @ 02:19 PM Reply

196 musicians, 115 days, 68 songs, 7 threads, 5 rounds, and 1 massive musical massacre later, the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch has finally finished and the glorious winner has been decided!

The two finalists were Kor-Rune and Waterflame, and it was a very close match-up (which is to be expected considering that they're both incredible artists). However (and you saw this statement coming miles away) there can only be one winner.

This round's judging team consists of me, Buoy, BrokenDeck, SkyeWintrest, Back-From-Purgatory and Jiimaan. Without further ado, here are the final results for the final round of this competition!

--- RESULTS ---

Waterflame v. Kor-Rune

- Waterflame
--- Jiimaan: 9.00
--- Step: 9.50
--- BrokenDeck: 8.00
--- Buoy: 8.00
--- Back-From-Purgatory: 8.00
--- SkyeWintrest: 8.50
AVERAGE: 8.50

- Kor-Rune
--- Jiimaan: 10.00
--- Step: 9.00
--- BrokenDeck: 8.00
--- Buoy: 8.50
--- Back-From-Purgatory: 8.50
--- SkyeWintrest: 8.00
AVERAGE: 8.67

====================
WINNER: Kor-Rune

So yes, by a very marginal amount, Kor-Rune wins! Big congrats to Kor-Rune for winning all five rounds and emerging as a victor amongst 196 competitors! And of course, great work to Waterflame for claiming second place, and TroisNyxEtienne/BlazingDragon for claiming third place, all incredible feats.

So what happens now? First, all the judges will eventually post their reviews on Waterflame's and Kor-Rune's tracks. The frontpage showcases are probably scheduled for next Monday but no guarantees; in the meantime Kor-Rune, Waterflame, TroisNyxEtienne and BlazingDragon please PM me with the song of yours you wish to have frontpaged; it doesn't have to be an NGADM submission. The forum signatures for first, second, and third place are nearly ready, and when they are I'll update the winners via PM. Store credit will be issued sometime in the close future; depends on when Tom finds the time to do so.

Before shutting up, I'd like to thank camoshark and RampantMusik for keeping up with the ongoing song lists and saving me and Echo a fair amount of work. In the art department, I'll thank Arist-Lost one more time for the fantastic NGADM 2012 logo. Also, thanks to Kuoke for taking care of the forum signatures this year which will be finished shortly. Expect a particular NGADM-related surprise from Archawn as well! More on that later.

Above all, however, I've got to thank all the judges who judged in this competition. Thanks goes to Buoy, SkyeWintrest, Back-From-Purgatory and BrokenDeck for being incredibly reliable, dedicated and on-the-whole punctual enough for us to have no delays at all this year (which is a massive improvement from previous years, believe me). Thanks also to Breed, sorohanro, Jiimaan and Acid-Paradox for doing some judging as well! Lastly, special thanks goes to Back-From-Purgatory for maintaining discipline like a strict school headmaster!

And remember, this is an annual competition. There are plans for another next year, which will probably accept 64 competitors instead of 32! So if you want another chance next year to take part in this massive contest, then you're probably going to get that chance in summer 2013 (unless we all die on the 21st of December of course). If you'd like to be notified via PM when the next NGADM starts, just post here and you'll be added to the mailing list. Note that if you auditioned in this competition then by default you'll be notified via PM when the NGADM 2013 starts.

That's about it! The fourth NGADM is over. Congrats again to Kor-Rune and great job to everyone who took part!

Oh and we didn't really want to do this but KOR-RUNE INSISTED:

Doesn't have the "officially endorsed by the NGADM Team" seal. I refuse to appose this to my sig if it isn't kosher.
