I don't think you should be humiliated to have lost. You made an amazing song in only 3 days, and the fact that you scored better than a lot of people who spent 2 full weeks on their songs is a true testament to your songwriting abilities.

NGADM or not I'm sure you'll go on writing great music, and I'll certainly be listening. And on the other hand, maybe we'll have another dropout and we'll be able to sneak you back in again! ;-)

My mistake, I understand now. Sorry, I've been very emotional this past week. Well, I'm at least very glad my idol @steampianist scored the highest out of everybody.

real talk tho

lots of people lost with real high scores this round! zipzipper and garlagan in particular, 8.5 would be a winning score in most of these rounds, so feel good about your work regardless!

aight time for round 3, which is equivalent to round 2 in years gone by, which is where i got knocked out last year. eep!

Also here's the unofficial ranking list you can look at to see how well you did....and stil lost.
Are you mocking me? I took this Deathmatch seriously. I was excited to discover that I would still have a second chance to be in this competition and worked so hard during my constrained time period that I created two songs and chose the one I thought would be best. It is very humiliating to have lost a second time, but I will move on and hope for the best next year...

Yes, that's exactly how I see it. I suppose I could've known you ZippZipper might not being the mood to deal with this in a joking manner right now. Sorry if I were inconsiderate. It's never nice to lose when you put a lot of effort into something. Perhaps you could even call it unfair you lost while scoring so high. But that's just the set up of the competition. For what it's worth I'm glad you got another chance, if only so I could hear another song by you. Just think of all the other contests you won lately. A lot of these contests I entered as well and you placed much higher than me. Which made me rather jealous. And jealousy is the best form of flattery. (It's also a green eyed monster) Which is why I'm extra happy to be still in the contest even though I twice scored lower than you. Call it mocking, but that's how I felt when you beat me in the previous contests. You'll probably win the next contest again. Good luck then.

In other news, considering the large amount of similar-sounding pieces in this round, I'm going to be far more harsh on generic styles, and will be rating pieces that are original much more highly.

tl;dr creativity and uniqueness pl0x

In similar news... I'm going to rate generic styles highly, and be far more harsh on creative and unique pieces.

MWAHAHAHA YOU ALL LOSE

sourpuss :p

Honestly, I doubt your life is anywhere near as hectic as mine and I actually wanted to win BECAUSE of it. Overcoming adversary is one of the best feelings ever. I understand that college related stress though. It's a juggling act. You can't have good grades, sleep, and a social life but the truth of the matter is there's always more to juggle than just those three things and they were already huge factors.

Feel good dude. You kicked my ass in round one. I can't wait to get my computer fixed and shit on that chipped shoulder of yours next year :p

So, I don't have my MIDI keyboard with me (because I just moved cross country), and it's essentially an extension of my musical mind at this point, since I use it to pretty much come up with all my ideas. So I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

Currently I'm trying to teach myself acoustic guitar as fast as possible. :D

This may not be the best strategy.

I knew this would happen. I leave Samulis in charge while I am occupied elsewhere and I return to find ruin on an imperial scale.

Actually, I am pretty glad this happened because I was planning on dropping out in this round anyways. Good luck with your contest, my friends. I am looking forward to seeing who will win the whole thing.

There are still a dozen days left (counting today) before the deadline, so there's no need to worry about it. I'm just an overachiever whose lucky numbers happen to be anything with twos, so posting on September 2nd gives me a huge (and completely fictitious) advantage.

Also, who wants to wait until the last day and submit a song on Friday the 13th? Yikes!
