N G A D M '14: Round Of 16 2014-08-25 18:43:51
Hello again! Welcome to the official thread for the second round of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2014 (NGADM '14) - the Round of 16! Don't know what the NGADM is? Head on over to this thread to find out more. If you do know what it is and would like to know more, check out THIS newspost for the schedule, prizes and most importantly the rules!
Now that we've gotten the Group Stages over with, it's time for the knockout bracket! We started with 184 auditions and had to narrow it down to only 64 participants, and now those 64 participants have been further whittled down to only 16. This would not have been possible without the help of our team of professional, experienced raccoon handlers - Step, Samulis, Neon-Bard, headphoamz, MetalRenard, and midimachine (who took particular care to zero-bomb all your submissions to oblivion)! Please feel free to congratulate them for the hard work they all do, and make sure to send any and all monetary tributes to me so I can *ahem* distribute them evenly.
This here thread encloses the results of the Group Stage round of the competition. Much like every year, talent this year is incredibly high, as I'm sure the people who hear this playlist can confirm. Another thing to note is that the electronic turnout this year was actually considerably better than previous years, and every last submission was of a very high quality. Now that the scores are posted below and Round 1 is finished, the judges will spend the two weeks of Round 2 reviewing your submissions. Each track will be getting two reviews, one from Step and one from another judge. If you would like to see who your second judge is, check out the review allocation file. Have an issue with a score from a particular judge? Do NOT post it in the thread! Leave it to PMs and if the judge wishes, s/he can post an extra review on your track. Remember that the judges put a lot of work into this round, so politeness and respect is a must.
Finally, I would like to thank a few people! Thanks goes to camoshark for keeping this excellent list of the submissions, and Artist-Lost for the excellent logo he made (for the third year running), which you can see at the bottom of this post.
One last thing, if you've made it through and have suddenly realised that you can't take part, then let us know instantly! Walkovers suck, and we can easily replace you with someone who was next in-line to win.
And with that, after two hectic weeks of shenanigans, here is an image of the final group standings. Move on to the next post after you've checked that, so you can see a detailed breakdown of the results!
