N G A D M '14: Finals 2014-10-18 14:48:07


Hello there! Welcome to the official thread for the fifth round of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2014 (NGADM '14) - the 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!

We've made it! After four grueling rounds of music-making, we are finally at the finals! We started with 184 auditions and had to narrow it down to only 64 participants, and after a couple of rounds we're down to 2 finalists, the best of the best. This whole endeavour would not have been possible without the help of our truly awesome team of judges - Step, Samulis, Neon-Bard, headphoamz, MetalRenard, and midimachine. As always, do remember who's doing the actual work (me), and distribute bribes accordingly.

This particular thread holds the results of the Semi Finals stage, i.e. the third knockout round. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, johnfn had to drop out, so the semi-final ended up being a 3-way matchup with the two top competitors making it through. Once again, the quality of submissions was truly astounding, and if you don't believe me you can always hear this playlist and find out for yourselves.

Now that the scores are posted below and Round 4 is finished, the judges will spend the two weeks of Round 5 reviewing your submissions. Each track will be getting a review from every single judge, which means a total of 6 reviews from our beloved judging team. 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 explain in detail the critique 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.

Remember, if you've made it through and have suddenly realised that you can't take part, then let us know instantly! Walkovers suck, especially in the final, and we can easily replace you with someone who was next in-line to win.

And with that, after two weeks of furious composing, here is the breakdown of the results!

garlagan vs PirateCrab vs SoundChris + Hitokirito

- garlagan
--- Step: 9.8
--- Neon-Bard: 9.5
--- headphoamz: 9
--- MetalRenard: 9.7
--- midimachine: 9.2
--- samulis: 9.35
AVERAGE: 9.43

- PirateCrab
--- Step: 8.1
--- Neon-Bard: 8.5
--- headphoamz: 8.9
--- MetalRenard: 8.5
--- midimachine: 8.1
--- samulis: 8
AVERAGE: 8.35

- SoundChris + Hitokirito
--- Step: 9.3
--- Neon-Bard: 9.4
--- headphoamz: 9.8
--- MetalRenard: 9
--- midimachine: 8.7
--- samulis: 8.75
AVERAGE: 9.16

======================
WINNER 1: garlagan
WINNER 2: SoundChris + Hitokirito
======================

W1NN3RS:
garlagan
SoundChris + Hitokirito

If you made it through, a big congratulations and good luck in Round 5! You have 2 weeks (until 1st November at 11:59 PM EDT [NG Time]) to make an entirely new song and post it here, in this thread. If you didn't make it, then at least remember you made it all the way to the Semi-Finals, which is in itself a great achievement.

As a reminder, do not ask/complain about any of the scores in this thread! Use PMs and review responses where applicable.

That should be everything! Posting can now begin.

Yeah. It's supposed to be 4 but johnfn had to drop out, so we ended up making Round 4 a three-way battle (with the top two making it to this final round). The rest of the playlists are here if you want to check those out too!

Finally diceded the genre. And again it will be a new genre - like in any rounds before.

About time someone answered; I was beginning to fear that I would cause even more pindrop silence in the blooming thread.

Shots fired by Garlagan first!

The finals have really started to get underway with a solid track. Does SoundChris + Hitokirito have something to compete with? Or has Garlagan already shattered his competition and slammed the judges back into their seats with his DnB soundwaves? The suspense has filled the air like smoke as everyone now begins to lean over their computers (or someone's computer caught on fire). What will happen next on this years ear-shattering

N G A D M 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!!
