It's that time again!
For those of you new to this, we hosted a 2016 tournament
in which all participants submitted eight songs, and then went against each other in head to head competition.
I have reposted the instructions below, but I have made one change to how submissions will work.
This is a tournament that involves your input. Each person submits songs and from those songs we create a single elimination tournament like this:http://challonge.com/ukmix2016
I will be put everything into the challonge bracket so we can track the match-ups.
1. There is no limit on the number of participants. The number of rounds is subject to the number of participants. Otherwise, we will go through a cycle of preliminaries (if necessary), quarter-finals, sweet sixteen, semi-finals, final four, and championship. Rounds will last 24-48 hours. I will post the full bracket at Challonge
2. Vote for the song you most prefer of the two songs listed. One vote for each battle per person. You are not required to vote on each battle. You do not have to submit songs to be able to vote.
3. In the first round, ties will be broken by higher seed number. For subsequent rounds, ties will be broken first by total cumulative vote, including previous rounds. Keep this in mind when you rank your songs. When you list your songs, please put them in order from 1-8, so that this rule may be applied.
I love this tournament because I learn of new songs!
To participate, please send me a list of 14 songs that you have enjoyed over the last three months. (This is a change from the previous tournament, so that the people who come up with songs last aren't disadvantaged.) I will then randomize the order in which the submissions came in. Only the first 8 non-matching songs will be used.
Please make sure you rank your songs. Keep in mind that in the preliminary rounds, the song with the higher ranking moves on in case of a tie. You cannot use the same song as a song already previously submitted in the UKMix 2016 tournament.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the thread. You have until March 5th to submit your choices. I figure three weeks is enough time to generate interest.
Hopefully, the turnout will be even bigger than the last one
