NGADM Finale Results

Posted by LucidShadowDreamer - October 28th, 2017

NGADM 2017 | INFO | Pairing | Auditions | Round of 64 / 32 / 16 / 8 / 4 | FINALE & RESULTS |

This is it!

The NGADM of 2017 is officially over, and the winner has been announced. May I say, the victory is well deserved, as the competition was tough. If you didn't find out who the winner is yet, you can read on or go to that results page that I linked to, above :)

Including the auditions, this contest had 7 rounds, 6 of which were in a deathmatch format. That is to say that a single loss meant you're out! Now, a few very high scoring non-winners (there's no nice way to say that, is there?) were given the opportunity to come back, which in a sense made the NGADM even more interesting! One of them was our powerhouse team that made it all the way to the finals!

The final scores didn't differ all too much, so the excitement was real. After all, the finalists consisted of a team including a previous winner, going against the winner of last year's NGUAC! Speaking of the scores, we'll get to those soon. First, I urge you to take some time to listen to the finalists' fine finale tracks! This playlist may not be extensive, but it's exquisite nonetheless: NGADM 2017 FINALE PLAYLIST!  

Before the round was over, the main organizer uploaded another podcast, very much worth a listen :3

Now then. Let us thank Ceevro for the official NGADM 2017 artpiece!
And now, let us move on to what you've been waiting for; the finale results! 







The order of scores by judge:




@FinnMKWe Are Heroes: 9.80 / 9.55 / 9.20 / 9.5 / 9.20 / 9.50 ~ Average: 9.46

(The competitior with the highest average-average score!)


(Featuring the 3rd place winner, @etherealwinds!)

@johnfn & @ethansight - C'mon, Girl: 9.20 / 9.23 / 9.41 / 9.4 / 9.00 / 9.00 ~ Average: 9.21




Haha, well. The averages don't take much effort to calculate this time, but I'll write them for you anyway:

Bosa: (9.8 + 9.2) / 2 = 9.5

ChronoNomad: (9.55 + 9.23) / 2 = 9.39

ADR3-N: (9.2 + 9.41) / 2 = 9.305

Samulis: (9.5 + 9.4) / 2 = 9.45

Skyewint: (9.2 + 9) / 2 = 9.1

TaintedLogic: (9.5 + 9) / 2 = 9.25

Average average: (9.46 + 9.21) / 2 = 9.335


As usual, one of the judes was very close to the average (average)! I trust you'll be able to figure out who that is :) That said, the biggest difference in judge averages was 0.4, which really isn't much.


Wow. This NGADM sure went by quickly. It has been a blast following its progression! A huge congratulation to our winner, FinnMK. Also, massive props to his finale competitors, johnfn and ethansight! And a great thanks to all the other participants; you're what made this contest possible.

And out of people who made the competition possible, I'd also like to take some time to thank the organizers, along with the judges! That would be, ChronoNomad & TaintedLogic, Bosa, ADR3-N, Samulis and SkyeWint! I know how much effort they put in, allowing all of us to enjoy this spectacle regardless of our role in it.

And that seems to be it for this year! And what an NGADM it was, amirite? The winners are getting their prizes, including some cash, forum sigs, games and honorary supporter statuses! Check out the aftermath in the forum!

Thanks to all the prize donors, including NG's very founder, @TomFulp. Whilst the contest is primarily for fun and honor, you've made it possible to reward the winners, which is essential.

This year I've been your 'scribe', and I've enjoyed summarizing the rounds for you. Hopefully, we'll see the return of the NGADM come 2018. For now, I'll go back to my studies. If all goes well I'll have some time to devote to music as well. Until my next post, I hope you all enjoyed the contest and that you're doing well.

Thanks for scribing everything Lucid! Great work.

Thank you for keeping the contest interesting, with your top-notch music :)
Congratz, once again ^____^!

Thanks for following and posting about the competition, Ale! Judging and administrating the ADM was my pleasure. :)

Yeah, I still fail to understand how you're able to devote so much of your time into the community! It's much appreciated :D
I'm glad you are enjoying it ;)

Many thanks to you, O estimable Scribe! You have done a truly masterful job of keeping us all well-informed. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Many thanks to you as well! You took up what's likely the toughest job of all! It has been fun, but on the other hand we get a break from the administrative stuff for a while :)

:( aww etherealwinds getting 3rd place again, i was hoping he could win.

Sure, but 3rd place is pretty impressive in a competition like this! :)
