Audiosurf World Tournament 2
« on: August 18, 2010, 07:08:47 pm »
Brought to you by blue_h3x, Saeda and ViRUS

That's right! The second version of the World Tournament is here!

Starting August the 27th, this second iteration of the tournament brings some new features that we hope you will all like. These features include:

  • Character-specific scoreboards:
Like using Ninja Mono but those Pushers and Pointmen won't let you have a chance? Worry no more! The new tournament has a new scoreboard system that will let you play any character you want, without having to worry about other characters on the same difficulty level!

  • Per-user statistics:
Want to know how you're doing on the tournament? With the new website that was developed exclusively for this tournament, you'll know the best score with a specific character, how many times you've played using that character and your average score!

  • An advanced desktop application:
The main features of this application include knowing how much time you have to play before the round finishes, an anti-cheating system, including the ability to ban people using their IP and fixes for many known ways of cheating scores, plus, you'll be able to forget about all the tagging issues found in the first version of the Tournament. The application does all the hard work for you!

  • Official support from the developers:
Dylan has agreed to show information about the tournament on the official News page, so competition will be fiercer than ever!

Grab the desktop application!

Check out the webpage!

IMPORTANT!

You MUST use the application when changing characters or your score WILL be lost, which will be very sad

So, get ready to battle and make sure you start practising!

Awesome. Looking forward to getting my arse handed to me. ;)

Just in case anyone was still wondering about those stickies ViRUS made a while back, unless I'm very much mistaken, this is what they were for. ;)

Edit: Missed this
(btw, I thought on stickying this post, but then I realized that you guys may think I was abusing my mod powers, so, this time I ask you: are you guys OK with me stickying this post?)
Dooooo iiiiit. Please. :)

Please do. It'd be a shame not to.

RADICAL! Can't wait!!!
Games Radar: "Audiosurf is a near religious musical gaming experience"
Amen to that.

Been waiting a long time for this, though I'll probably get thrashed.  It's been awhile since I played haha.
Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears.

Well there's still one week time and the songs aren't extreme traffic ones. So even average players should be able to play them, though who gets the highscores is a completely different story. BUT: Since I know a lot of Pros who haven't been playing for a while, I think we got quite the leveled playing field.

Looking forward to this!

Shame about the lack of extreme traffic tracks though; at least one would have been nice.

Oh, what a shame... Are you sure you can't even play on 640x480 using Minimal? My desktop PC died on me too, but I'll be using my lappy to play :P
