You don't qualify as a regular.

Not really a regular but I'll try and sneak in. Otherwise I'll wait and write a review.

Adding the next few players tomorrow morning. I will then be laying down a scheduling system so if you have any suggestion before I make a test run schedule, post them now.

Then once a beta scheduling system is made, I will choose our first two players by random and present our first theme.

From there I will select the new challenger from among the players and the champion will pick a new theme.

I'm not gonna join up as a challenger yet as I always get lazy with forum games but I'll most likely post some reviews and follow the game.

Scourge441


The avatar that endlessly toils.
The signature that never changes.
Scourge441, named so for the 441 men he has killed, comes from an older time in UG. A time where dads were Jewish, colorful swastikas were stylish, and when monuments to sorrow were erected. His wisdom and experience gives him a vast plethora of knowledge to pool from, but will new age UG simply dismiss him as a wrinkly balls old man?

Time will tell.

An absolute underdog, since my memory of you is limited to making a dick comment toward you, but in the Your Move arena being an underdog simply means it's easier to surprise your opponent with a dagger to the face.

Don't you listen to hardcore or something?

As far as scheduling goes I think three days would be perfect for the listening/voting period.

Example;

Today two players enter the arena, a theme will be declared, and tomorrow they offer up their albums of choice. Friday/saturday/sunday will then be used as the listening/voting period. Monday we declare the winner and set up the next match.

To me that seems simple, fast paced, and also gives enough time for people to set aside and listen.

Give me your feedback and we can get this going.

^ That sounds perfecto to me.

Also how long should reviews be [just to be safe]? Like, a paragraph to a few paragraphs, or should/can they be longer/more in depth?

A paragraph of substance would be fine. Longer and more in depth would be fine

Not really worried about length, moreso I want to hear something more then "I liked it"

Winner is the album that best exemplifies said theme, correct? Say album A is masterpiece that kinda fits the bill and album B is just average but perfectly sums up the theme , album B wins right? Or are we gonna have to cater to the reviewers?

Well you're rating the album as it fits to the theme, musically and aesthetically. So while it's all opinion base, I myself don't see a shitty album fitting a theme at all.

I wouldn't think too hard about it.

Is it just people that are new approached challengers that review, or anyone?

I see no reason, assuming said person is considered regular enough, that people outside of the competitors shouldn't be allowed to review.

the challengers who posted that hashtag... two are picked randomly to present the music... then everyone else explains that they have listened by writing a review...

in it.

Note that a player will be involved in matches, you do not need to sign up to cast your vote via review, you only need to show up and listen.

anyways... just look back and read the past few pages... its fairly simple.
