Unacclaimed VI: Heats, Week 8

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Mar 18, 2020 3:05 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.

Just for future reference, if you choose to rank a group later, could you do it in a separate post rather than editing an older one? Otherwise I might miss a group ranking.
