Sorry the update schedule has been so inconsistent these past couple weeks. If you have any ideas for what tournament we should do next, leave them below. Just a heads up, there are a few changes I'm thinking about making to the whole system but we'll go over that on Monday. For now, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend.

Run themes. These are songs that play when you want to finish a level quickly, be it by death behind you or prizes ahead. Any theme that plays when you feel like you have to run will do.

-Best Antagonist Base Theme (the part in the game where you final get to the main antagionist's base, usually the area you explore before the final boss. Tracks that should not be alowed becase of the reasons stated exacty before hand include Paper Mario TTYD Chapter 8)
-Best Rendition of an Original Track
-Best Mini-Boss Theme
-Best End Level Melody (touch the flag pole, free the captured animals, etc.)

Alright guys, I'm leaning towards either @GamecubeMan's suggestion of the Antagonist Base Theme or Best Final Boss Theme. I'm already planning on having a Best Credits Tournament, so don't fret if you wanted that to be next.

Some other things to discuss, for a while now I've felt that the way tiebreakers are handled could be done better. The system we have now is just the one I carried over from the original creator of this Music Tournament. I have a few ideas on how we could make it better, from something like a random dice roll to just delaying the next round until the tie is broken, but I'd like to hear your opinions as well.

One last thing, Ever since I started this thread we've done basic single elimination tournaments. I know many people are sad when their songs lose, whether in the first round of the tournament, or in the semifinal round. One option is that we could have double eliminations. It wouldn't have to be for every tourney, but I just thought I'd run it by you and see what you all think.

I can agree to double eliminations. I was trying to think of a way to rank it out so you get a full list from 1st to whateverth, but in 64-song tournaments, and even worse, in 128-song tournaments, that'd be a painstakingly long process, trying to nail down every single place. Heck, even for 32-song tournaments, that'd be rough. I did a 16-song one, in another forum that I might be able to do that with, if rounds go by fast enough, but I probably just won't. Double elimination, however, is a good way of going about things.

Also, antagonistic base theme, though it doesn't seem like it HAS to be the final level, as sometimes (notably in RPGs) you get to an antagonist's base long before the game's even remotely over. For instance, the Desian HUB in Tales of Symphonia would be an antagonistic base, even if the final level is actually Derris Kharlan.

Double elimination is an idea I was going to suggest. Tracks that made it to semifinals would be put in a loser's bracket and the winner of the loser's bracket would face the winner of the main bracket. So basically we could see if this winning track could even stand the likes of an original losing track. As far as Final Boss Themed tournament....... that would be spoilertastic! :P

Double elimination on semi-finals sounds good to me, though not earlier than that lest it'll stall for too long. Hope we're doing the antagonist base tourney; I already have a winner in mind. :)

About tiebreakers: I believe we ought to leave those for the dice and use a site like this one

Currently on the plate:
Mount and Blade: Warband – Napoleonic Wars
Chivalry
Super Mario 3D World – Finishing the last few levels.
Mario Kart 8

@ClockworkMario
The thing is that when I set the bracket up I have to choose either single or double elimination right there. Unless I made a separate bracket for all the songs that lost in the semi-final round, it would be one or the other.

I think we'll go with Best Antagonist Base Theme for this tournament. I still need to know what you guys want for tiebreakers though. We could stick with the system we have, or do something like @ClockworkMario suggested, I just need to know.

I don't feel like leaving it to random chance is the best way to go about it, but I also think that the way it's being done, now is more unfair, and waiting for another vote to break the tie could take too long. Really, I don't like any of these options, but I don't have any good ideas of my own and random chance is the fairest of the three.

Bring both of them into the next round so that its a choice of 3 songs instead of 2.
