Yue, you should throw in a general discussion thread or something because I didn't really know where to throw this question at xD:
Does the whole group have to edit to one song, or is each person given a different song?

Everyone in the bracket will be editing to the same song. That means only 22 (or 23, I have my notes at home >>;) songs out of the 300+ I received will actually be used.

I would highly recommend for people to check out videos from the original Quickening tournament. Some of them are really amazing and it'll give you a general idea of what is expected. http://en.amv-france.com/concours/quick ... e_resultat

The rules for the original Quickening and are version are a bit different, but overall it's the same general concept.

EDIT: As for those curious about how the songs will be randomized for the contest, I have made a list with all the rounds and am assigning a number to each song I received. I am then putting all the numbers 1 - X into http://www.random.org/lists/ and am taking the songs that show up at the top. Such as the first randomized result (say it's #42) shows up as #1 on the list, that song is assigned to the first match, Group A R1, with the #2 result being assigned to Group B R1, etc..

Also, last question: I heard that it was free-for-all in round 1, but the way the brackets look tell me that it's 1v1. So is it 1v1? O:

Yes, the brackets are in a 1 v 1 style but it's primarily used for keeping track of who is where. The tournament is a free for all. The matches are NOT 1 v 1.

Strongest Group C?
Weakest Group B?
Strong/weak = how many names I recognize.

honestly, I would have loved to go against XDreww 1 on 1 since I didn't get to go up against him in the Amazon Postulate tournament. But the idea of a free for all against Vivifx, irriadin, Statz, Eake4, xDreww, Jade_eyed_angel and MimS is so much sweeter though :awesome:

For me, we can't predict who will win, everything depends on the musics :)

The whole thing that makes even some seasoned editors have a disadvantage is the song that they're given. Like say if Shin got a dark and creepy song in his group, I don't think he would do as well as getting something more upbeat. That's what makes this contest more of a toss-up. It will test some people's versatility and it makes this whole thing that much more interesting. :D
