Well well, hehhe.

Seems like the results were a bit early this time around, so to balance it out I did you a favor by being a bit late with my post ;) *cough*
 

Hey, this was another supercalifragilisticexpialidocious round! Dare I say with some expected, and some unexpected results? There were no walkovers; hooray for that! Once again though, one of the judges (different one) was unfortunately busy with "real life", so to speak. Hopefully, for the last few rounds they'll all be able to partake in the judging, if for nothing else than the fewer remaining champions. And congratulations to all who made it through!!!
The pressure is certainly intensifying. Thank you for participating, to all who unfortunately have to wait until next year to compete again.

If you haven't heard all of the tracks from this round, or if you want to relisten to them all in a compiled and easy manner (like I have been doing while making this post), this playlist will suit those needs perfectly :)

Of course, props to @Ceevro for providing this lovely art for the competition. Since it is a competition, perhaps we should move on to the results?

Once again, I tried to conclude some simple averages. Lemme know if my work is messy, since it's past 5am.

This round, the average average seems to agree with ADR3-N! (Unless I've made some calculatory errors).


 

Fewer and fewer people remain in the competition! We're down from 16 to just 8-bit (battlers in tonality) now. Who will have the Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent to make it all the way to the end? Continue to tune in, if you want to find out!

For now, I will instead tune out until my services are needed again (in three weeks, to be more precise). Fare well, until then!

Looks like it's over for me. I'm still really proud I made it as far as I did, this was a first for me. I've entered every NGADM since the first one in 2012 and this was hands down my best.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

You should be proud indeed! You did make it far :)
Maybe you'll be able to enter again next year, and make it even further? :O!

My luck finally ran out this round. Thanks for putting this together LSD. I enjoyed this contest and I'm glad to have made it this far. We'll see what happens next year.

........hopefully not conflicting with NGUAC again

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I don't think luck is the only thing that got you through those rounds ;)
The NGADM is always fun, despite the minor dramas here and there xD
Let's hope the contest is alive and well next year too :D

It would be great if the schedules didn't overlap for sure. Especially since CHIPS is there to pick up those who fall out, but want to continue competing :3

Really creepy how I end up being right on the average again with the difference in the thousandths place, with @TaintedLogic right behind.

Congratulations to those going home and to those going on alike. Really enjoyed this round. I'll be posting reviews soon. Finally, my PC didn't shut down right in the middle, hahah!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Indeed :)
That said, it's not that unlikely, from a mathematical perspective, so I think you're not haunted by the ghost of numbers :D

Congratulations to all indeed, and good luck with those reviews!

"Who will have the Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent to make it all the way to the end?"

Um, I hope that order wasn't intentional... xD

Besides that little (hopefully accidental) secret message, you've put together another fine post! Once again, I'm the sweetheart of the round, handing out lollipop wishes and cotton candy dreams. Not that it actually saves anyone's bacon from the fire, of course. C'est la vie.

The scores this round tended to be really close, and I'm guessing that those margins will get even narrower as the contest keeps moving forward. Thanks again, Lucid! That's my Scribe. :D

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Well, it's not as much accidental, as it was a reference to another competition :p
I know there are at least a couple of contestants that should recognize it, so ;)
Well done for picking up on it, tho!

I'm glad my post is appreciated :)
It's good that the judges are varied; ultimately that contributes to the fairness and balance!

I wouldn't be surprised if the scores get even narrower indeed, but I suppose that remains to be seen! Good luck with the remaining rounds o.O
