The remaining competitors have until August 21st to craft their squeaky-clean, brand-new tracks! Thanks as always to the judges, @Bosa, @ChronoNomad, @ADR3-N, @Samulis, @SkyeWint, and @TaintedLogic.

In addition, we owe our gratitude to @LucidShadowDreamer for using his own news page to keep users informed of the competition, @LunacyEcho for providing some stellar statistical analysis, and @Ceevro for our badass logo (below). I’d highly encourage you all to follow these amazing artists and creators! You can also check out all of the tracks from the previous round in this playlist.

Full results will be posted momentarily in this thread, sorted by pairing. You can also check out the contest’s bracket here.

So is there still a chance to be backup at this point? If someone fails to meet the deadline and such? I won't happen probably so far in the competition, but I would like to know so I can already start working on a track just in the miraculous case I could still backup.

There is a chance, however slim. Clearly, it would depend on someone else vacating their Round of 16 spot for one reason or another, and I cannot predict the likelihood of such an event. At this point in the contest, and after making it this far, I certainly would not advise anyone to do so.

Like previous rounds, the highest scorer that did not move on gets first dibs, then the next, and so on. You can use the bracket for the easiest point of reference, but it looks as though you would be fourth on the list.

So if I understand correctly, if someone misses the deadline without any notice beforehand, and I have a track ready, am I allowed to jump in right before the deadline if no one else that scored higher than me last round wants to?

Because I can get another track finished within 2 weeks, and there is nothing wrong with it not being able to participate in the contest (it would be a regular track then), but it would be cool if it could even if it would only be a slim chance :).

Yes, that would be doable, but we would still need to go through the same chain: JacobCadmus (8.74), Phonometrologist (8.72), MrKoolTrix (8.55), Xtrullor & HeliXiX (8.46) you (8.44), and so on down the line. You'd actually be fifth in such a scenario.

Apologies for missing the team of Xtrullor & HeliXiX previously.

Of course I suggest you work on something either way, because adding to your repertoire is never a bad thing.

I take it as a positive sign that people are busy working on their Round of 16 tracks.

Of course that may just be wishful thinking...

FIRST!

...submission of the round, that is.

Once again, as tracks magically appear (ha!) within the thread, they will be added to the playlist and sorted in bracket order.

We've still got nine more days ahead of us, so stay the course!

Looks like I'm going to be double dipping CHIPS and ADM again. Since Skye will have to actually judge CHIPS to not be disqualified there could potentially be a slight problem there where Skye will have to score my track prematurely but I'm sure it's no biggie

Either way I have 5 days left to finish at least a draft of this and then it's polish polish polish if I stand a chance against BFJ


If I make it past the quarterfinals, the banner below this text will disappear. Not sure if I should be excited or disgruntled about that. EDIT: Definitely excited.

I see no problem; should save Skye a bit of time later on. Just don't go publicizing your score in the interim and everything will be hunky-dory.

Infinity isn't going to see what Skye voted tho, only the average of at least a bunch of people, so he probably won't even know Skyes thoughts about it :)

Completing a bracket with the first two tracks straight out of the gate? I believe that's fairly unprecedented.

And @ThaPredator Turning 16--in the Round of 16, no less! How apropos is that?

With this we have the beginnings of our playlist. There's still just over a week left until the deadline, and I'm looking forward to adding the rest of your tracks as they are finalized.

Well, hello there! Your track has been added, but you might want to flip those letters in the title around a bit...

...Or we could just start calling it the Newgrounds Death Audio Match.

It is kind of fun reading it as: "NG...damn!" xD

I've been here since June 30, 2016, so I don't know everything that has happened before I came to NG.
