N G A D M '13: Finals Oct. 23rd, 2013 @ 04:51 PM Reply

Why hello there! Welcome to the Finals thread of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2013 (NGADM '13)! That's right, the FINALS! If you still don't know what the NGADM is, check out this thread to find out more. However, if you're pumped and ready to go, read on and let's get these finals going!

As per usual, this thread holds the results of Round 5, ie. the Semi-finals, and the list of the 2 finalists who will be competing for the prize of ultimate ruler of the audio portal (not really). This round was a bit different than the usual, due to some unforeseen circumstances on Kor-Rune's part. As a result, we're having a three-way battle between the semi-finalists, with the best 2 progressing to the finals. I know I say this every round, but you guys are just fantastic. Again, we've had our work cut out scoring you.

So anyway, you know the drill. Throughout the next 2 weeks, the judges will review your submissions. Like last time, the judges will all be reviewing each track. So yes, once again, you get SEVEN reviews on your piece!

Before we start though, 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 Finals 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!

Once again, thanks go to camoshark for his list of submissions and threads, SourJovis for compiling a Round 4 ranking list, and Artist-Lost for making the awesome logo. Also, we'd like to give a big hand to Kor-Rune for being the first NGADM Winner to make it to the semi-finals again in the consecutive year. Pity he had to drop out, he's a great competitor and we're sad to see him go!

We'd again like to thank the great judging team for this competition, who as always put a lot of time and effort into getting you these results in time: me, SkyeWintrest, Step, bassfiddlejones, alternativesolution, Back-From-Purgatory, and Neon-Bard.

So yeah, that should be it! After 2 weeks of awesome music-making, Skye being a stoned doge, and Ecke making his timely entry to the NGADM, I'm proud to present the Round 5 Results! Enjoy!

Congrats to the two finalists who've made it past so much trial and tribulation to get a chance to battle each other in the final duel. A big well done to etherealwinds who made it this far, being one of the best 4 competitors out of over 200. We look forward to seeing you again next year! To the winners, remember you have till the 6th November at 11:59 PM EST (NG Time) to produce a brand new piece! Good luck!

Don't forget to use PMs and/or review responses if you'd like to discuss your score with a judge. Remember to be polite, and ask nicely.

Anyway, that's it for now! Let the posting begin!

Just look at that margin between johnfn and etherealwinds. Insane.

Honestly, this round was absolute torture for me to decide on scores. Huge congratulations to steampianist and johnfn, both incredibly talented musicians. And good luck!

I was actually quietly hoping that I wouldn't be put through to the finals because I go to Brighton and London tomorrow on holiday! I got the exact best score I could have hoped for, less than 0.1% less than John! I wouldn't have had the time to produce a piece final-worthy and I get to sit comfortably in third place (assuming there's no crazy twists hahaha).

Wonderful :D well done guys!!

Oh man. In the past when I've seen NGADM results I usually get excited and run around the house, but this time I was just sad that I wouldn't be hearing another NGADM piece from etherealwinds. :( However reading this made me feel a little better.

Good luck to steampianist, even though I suspect I'm just going to be steam...rolled. (yes... the final NGADM name pun!) Either way though this has been a fantastic experience.

I think I should automatically gain entry into the NGADM '14 because it's so easy to make puns out of my name! ;D

No, but in all seriousness, I've been following the competition all the way through, and I'm exceedingly impressed with the high quality of content. I've downloaded many songs that were part of this contest this year. Thanks to all the judges and competitors for their hard work! Anxiously awaiting the final tracks! :D

Good round. I thought etherealwinds would become first this year. He came out of nowhere but his scores kept on getting higher. Still he did an awesome job. But so did johnfn and steampianist. I've decided not to make a ranking list for this round or the next. It's too obvious now, so it won't contribute anything. Good luck johnfn and steampianist. May the one with the highest score win.

Considering how good you were by yourself, a JacobCadmus x anyone team absolutely terrifies me.

I have a choice between --

1) etherealwinds x Troisnyx x AlbertStClare (the latter is a lyricist)
2) bassfiddlejones x Troisnyx
3) JacobCadmus x Troisnyx (and possibly x AlbertStClare)
4) PeterSatera x Troisnyx
5) Insert any other interested partnering here.
6) Going solo.

Decisions, decisions.
