just curious why your contest plays that way.
That's something that's been going on for several years. The audience doesn't want to watch a bunch of drama and romance videos back to back. This also prevents people from just showing up at the beginning or end to see action/comedy and then emptying the room (this was a notorious issue at many AMV contests back in the day..late 90s early 00s). As an FYI from 2007-2010 the list wasn't even randomized. I know those years I manually built the play order (note: I am not currently on ACen AMV staff).
interesting. i find it so bizarre how different cons have different reactions to amvs. kinda like each convention has it's own personality.
