I know your comment wasn't to me, but it's not your fault, Emer. I mean you set the format before the game started, the points could have all been close with only a 10 point difference between first and last, with those extra boosts needed.

It just ended up that most of the bottom group fell too far behind for it to make much of a difference. Aiming for a perfect score while hoping your opponent scores less than 24/40 isn't super likely.

But again, it's Metsrus, so I mean anything can happen blah

Bro you don't even have to submit <3 your advantage plus whatever penalty she gives Turner for being the worst at formating PMs will move you on anyway haha.

I had to just tell Thanny to resubmit because Nat got his submission...You were quick, Nat! Great choice btw lol

Sorry Emer, I just don't think it's a good format. 4 of the 5 eliminations are basically decided, as has been pointed out. 3 of them are almost certain so in that sense, it can't be a great format if you're already almost certain of the some of the results.

Also, has been pointed out, the fact that someone is in the top 1-3 and playing against people in the bottom 3 is an advantage in itself. They're won the right to play the weaker people in the game. Nat doesn't need any advantage, let alone a 29 point gap Laughing

It is your game but it's not too late to amend the format. You could still give the people who did well an advantage over the people at the bottom, without it being insurmountable. I know we discussed this but now that others see the problem, you might reconsider.

Nat +10
Bria +9
Tom +8
and so on, down to Turner on +1. This way, Turner has a 9 point gap to make up, which isn't beyond the realms of possibility lol. It's up to you but it might be a better format to go with. At least then there could be a bit of suspense.

If not, well, that's a shame and Nat will certainly win the game, which is really dull and predictable Laughing

T.ears I just remealized (remembered/realized) that a lot of old songs don't have "official" music videos because that wasn't really a big thing back and it narrows down most old things I'd want to send to suck up to Pete <3

5 fixtures, 5 winners = one spare player next round. I should get a bye just for being so damn sexy.

He's suggesting Nat and Bria automatically move on, no matchups for them, and everything else pushed down, Met vs Turner, Shred vs Dana, Mark vs me, Thanny vs Neil. So then only 4 people leave, leaving you with 6 people for the rest of the game, an even number if you do one of these face off rounds again.

Edit: not saying you should do that, everything is your decision, but if you did, Nat and Bria could still have their submissions judged so they receive more points added to their score for future rounds.

Then what happens at 6? You have 3 winners from 3 fixtures lol, so someone gets a bye the round after too, or do you give 2 more byes at 6 and have 2 fixtures? No. Lol giving byes is a bad idea. I would have just eliminated the bottom 2 after group rounds, that's what generally happens and the whole reason for having a table, to scramble to stay above the bottom 1/2/3 spots. So Turner and Dana would be eliminated right now and we'd have 3 knockout rounds (quarter finals, semi-finals and a final, preferably without the accumulated totals). The only way knockout fixtures like this work is with a certain number of players. You can have 128 to begin, then 64, 32, 16, 8, 4 and a final with 2. I watch snooker and this is how they do it lol it doesn't work with other numbers. This is a common format for many sports including the World Cup (32), tennis (128 in majors) and no doubt plenty others.

Hmm...how about let's make this a wild card round, bottom 4 face off each other, that will leave us with 8 players next round.

That would work, but call it the elimination play-off round lol it has more zazz to it Laughing and it could be song of choice or something so all the songs sent for this theme can be carried over to the quarter finals. It's not our decision but it works.

I'm not gonna carrying the points further after this round. After this one it's gonna switch back to a standard game, i.e. lowest scorer leaves per round.

Fine, my arm's been twisted and because I'm a host of the people I'll come to a COMPROMISE!

No compromises needed, young lass!  Bull and I were just throwing out ideas.

Lol, too late.  Anyway,  just a slight shakeup but this is how   the now infamous Round 666 will go now.  I think this way no one will be too disappointment! So here it goes ~

Nat, Bria, Tom and Bobby...You guys are automatically through to Round 7 so I'll discard your submissions!

Round 6 will be a 3 MATCH PLAYOFF between the bottom 6 players instead now, and it'd go like this -

MATCH FIXTURES:
1. Mark vs. Turner
2. Neil vs. Dana
3. Thanny vs. Cherry

POINT ADVANTAGE:
1. Mark: +107
2.  Neil: +104
3.  Thanny: +99
4.  Cherry: +96
5.  Dana: +95
6. Turner: +89

There will be 5 judges this round,  as I asked mas if he's able to judge this round and he kindly said yes, so there's a potential of 50 points up for grabs, and the margins aren't so big now so it's gonna make for an interesting round!

I'll go ahead and post the 6 submissions next.
