N G A D M '14 - Quarter Finals 2014-09-14 00:00:13


Heya! Welcome to the official thread for the third round of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2014 (NGADM '14) - the quarter finals! 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!

I'll get straight to the point - an absolutely fantastic round. The vast majority of the competitors noticeably stepped up their game from their already-strong previous round, and as a result the scores were sky high this round. HUGE thanks to all the judges - Step, samulis, Neon-Bard, headphoamz, MetalRenard, and midimachine - for working very hard to get you these sky high scores on time.

Thanks once again to camoshark for possibly the best newspost ever and Artist-Lost for the fantastic icon underneath!

As a reminder, do not post anything until I give the go-ahead.

Sorry for the results taking so long. They're JUST on time to avoid being late, but still, we sure did leave it till the last minute. There were complications (naturally of the raccoon variety). In fact, the above posts were all written manually due to no access to the spreadsheets at the moment, so keep a watchful eye for any mistakes. If you find any notable mistakes, contact me immediately.

And thanks for such a great round of amazing music. It was a pleasure judging it and we look forward to the quarter finals!

Holy shit, did I just score the highest average so far with a METAL track? I am honestly so chuffed, thank you guys! Many thanks to @bosa for actually submitting his track in the end, it was still an awesome track for an unfinished piece! I look forward to facing @camoshark & @skyewint next round! This should be an interesting match :D

I inputted the wrong results for SolarexMusic when preparing the bracket. Sequenced definitely won, follow Step's results.

@PeterSatera : Congrats and --> Hello!

It was the frontpage that got me the comments and reviews that I got; nothing more. I don't know if I can call it well-deserved, for I'm sure the judges didn't find it at all hard picking between you and me. Just being honest, and hurt.

I did try to go placidly about the results, but I couldn't, because of what was at stake. It just pains me that no matter how much I improved, no matter how hard I tried, it all came to nothing in the end.

He's so talented. It was really tight. Even when we were talking online it was nothing but mutual respect. Etherealwinds had a lot to deal with this round. He was moving, in the middle of his studies and had to create a track last minute. He recorded using a mic with a Laptop and used headphones for his production. If anything, for him to be able to do so much, so fast and produce something so great is commendable and admirable. He had more time on his hands, the scoring may have been completely different.

I know we all have to deal with what is in our lives while doing this but with our scores being so tight I'd just like to say that the guy is uber talented (sickeningly :P ) and that I really felt the pressure and excitement to come up against him. So if anyone isn't following him, then you should!

To be honest. I thought that he was going to win. So much that I reformatted yesterday to solve some operational issues. Unfortunately, now all my audio stuff needs set up again for this round asap, and new templates made and licenses in. argh! lol

I loved both your pieces, and think that it was super tight. I really liked what I heard from you Troisnyx in this comp. Your last track was really different and thought it was nice to hear you creep into that territory:D

Thanks so much! It was so tight by looking at it, and you all scored me much better than I honestly thought I deserved. I think once you hear your own track for the millionth time you do tend to get sick of it. But Im so surprised at how generous the scores were for my track, I really appreciate it. Thanks!
