N G A D M '13: Round 4 Sep. 18th, 2013 @ 06:55 PM Reply

Ohai! Welcome to the Round 4 thread of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2013 (NGADM '13)! If your reaction is: What's that? Check out this thread. On the other hand, if your reaction is: HORY SHET YES, read on!

Just like last time, this thread holds the results of Round 3, as well as the 8 winners who will be taking part in Round 4. The quality we've come to expect this year has only gotten higher, with scores over 9 being dished out like free candy. I'd like to point out the SoundChris vs Kor-Rune pairing, which was incredibly close! Congratulations to both contestants for a truly well-fought bout. Also, kudos to steampianist for getting an amazingly high average score this round.

Anyway, same drill as always. Throughout the next 2 weeks, the judges will review your submissions. Since the number of submissions has decreased this time, the judges will all be reviewing each track. That's right, you get SEVEN reviews on your piece!

Also, before we start, here are some rules you should probably read:

1.) Do NOT complain about or question your score in this thread, and no ranting or distasteful posts! You will be getting reviews explaining some of your scores, and if you want a particular judge to explain his/her score to you, then resort to PMs, and be patient and reasonable! Remember - the judges all worked very hard for this round, and deserve a round of applause not a round of hate PMs.

2.) The results will take up more than one post. Do not post anything until the results, winners and pairings have all been posted, and I give the go-ahead. It will inevitably get deleted by a friendly neighbourhood moderator.

3.) Use this thread to post your Round 3 submissions. As always, this thread can also be used for discussion.

4.) PMs will be sent to everyone who took part notifying them of the results. If you've already seen these results and got a PM, disregard it.

5.) Read the RULES again. You may have missed something. You never know!

Big thanks go to camoshark for his list of submissions and threads, gadogry for his awesome Round 2 stats, SourJovis for compiling a Round 2 ranking list, garlagan for stepping up to take MichaelJ's place and making a track in a much shorter time period, and Artist-Lost for making the awesome logo. Oh, and check out the Round 3 playlist for a handy playthrough of all the great submissions this round.

We'd also like to thank the great judging team for this round, who have all worked very hard just to get these results to you on time: me, SkyeWintrest, Step, bassfiddlejones, alternativesolution, Back-From-Purgatory, and Neon-Bard.

I guess that's it! After 2 weeks of awesome music, insane journeys through multiple levels of dreams, horrible jokes, Leonardo Di Caprio as a raccoon and a tumbleweed, I'm proud to present the Round 3 Results! Enjoy!

Congrats to all the winners! Special kudos to me estimable opponent, the extremely talented ethereal winds. Way to go, man.

It's been a whole lot of fun, guys! I'll stick around to see what happens and help out by reviewing the submission. There's no way I'm just going to disappear after coming this far, even though my NGADM road has come to an end.

I want to especially applaud SoundChris, garlagan, headphoamz, InYourDreams, johnfn, and dj-Jo for trying something new or out of their comfort zone for this round (and SourJovis as well? I'm not sure what your comfort zone even is though haha). Risky but valiant move!

Good luck to the winners. It was a great round.

NGADM keeps putting me up against the best musicians D: D:

ZipZipper, midimachine, even Xyresic was a beast...

JacobCadmus' piece was seriously one of the best things I heard last round. My only advantage now is that a) I'm not on a vacation and b) I'm not getting kicked from apartment to apartment without any instruments on hand.

Aw who am I kidding. I am so screwed.

+1, I feel bad for soundchris getting knocked out so early.

Thanks man. I was pretty sad you didn't have enough time too. I know you have a lot of talent bottled up.

I took BFP's place. If someone gets a 10 from me this year I will send them $50 via paypal. Not that that's going to happen unless your piece of music is absolutely perfect...

I give mad respect to @garlagan, for coming out on short notice and having the balls to try something new. makes my victory feel undeserved. now that I get another shot, I'm inspired to venture out myself. ;-)

oh and thank you @johnfn! it's kinda poetic that I'm now going up against one of the first people to welcome me into the NG community. this is gonna be a battle for the century!!!!

So yea someone probably typo'd my name on the input there.

Well, 4's gonna be a little different. Hope you guys like 4/4 anthemic, progressive, uplifting, vocal trance.

Wouldn't want to take it easy on the guy who's been winning from the bottom half each round now would you?
