Unacclaimed VI: Heats, Week 12

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Apr 15, 2020 2:54 pm

This is the last week of heats BTW.

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.

Hi Bang Jan, do you have a bracket for this? Just curious how the next match-ups will work :)

The semi-final matches are seeded based on the points per voter of each song, therefore even I won't know exactly how the groups will turn out until every group is finished.

Rooney is an enigma - heard a few songs over the years and always enjoyed them, but no idea who they are. I should listen to them more. Great song.

Not a great week for me - lots passable but nothing that stood out

Rooney | Blueside
GG Allin | Bite It You Scum - Maybe this is one of the cleaner picks? I was expecting a lot edgier. Really feels like it wouldn't have been out of place in the late 70s.
