Unacclaimed V: Heats, Week 9

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Apr 03, 2019 2:09 pm

The way this game works is that you will be given two sets of four songs, your job is to rank each of the sets from best to worst. First place gets 4 points, second gets 3 etc.

The song with the most points in each set will advance to the semi-finals. If there is a tie for points, then the song with more first place votes will advance. If they are tied on first place votes as well, there will be a sudden death tiebreak. Also the six highest scoring non-winners in the heat stage (based off point per voter and then percentage of first place votes) will also advance to the semi-finals.

Feel free to ask any questions, deadline is next Wednesday at 15:00 UTC.

You know, it only just now occurred to me that “Ocean Man” by Ween would actually be eligible for Unacclaimed. Guess I know what I’m nominating next time!

I’ll get my vote in during the next 24 hours.
