Info/Rules

What is ECS6.5?:




ECS6.5 is the eleventh (after ECS1, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, and 6) tournament in the East Coast Stamina series. The objective is to try to clear as many of the hardest stamina charts as you can within the format of the tournament. It is a team tournament, and you may enter it on a team of up to three individuals.

Once again, since this isn't a "main" ECS (like, one of the whole number ones), it's going to be split into an upper and lower division to make it more accessible to a wider range of participants.


When:




Entrants can submit their sets at any time BEFORE May 14th, 2018 to count towards the ranking. Within that timeframe, when and where they do this is at their discretion, so long as they adhere to the rules detailed further on.


Where:




Wherever. Any ITG machine that's running an ITG theme and not the StomperZ one Stepmania 5 is acceptable as long as you're using ITG's life/scoring mechanics (using the Simply Love theme on Competitive mode is the easiest way to accomplish that).


What are the prizes?:




Keep in mind it'll probably take me a while to mail everything once the tournament is over.


Format:




ECS6.5 is a team tournament split into an Upper Division and a Lower Division, with two portions to the tournament for each division.



Set 1: Marathon




Each division has ONE marathon this year. You have two options on how you approach the marathon.


Your team gets 30 minutes to split up however you want to warm up for your marathon (if you're doing option 2 and splitting it up individually, each team member gets 30 minutes). If you fail, or you are just dissatisfied with your score, you may reattempt the marathon(s) as many times as you like or can manage before May 13th. However, you cannot try more than once in the same day (defined as any time that falls on the same calendar date as the initial attempt). This also means you cannot play prior to your 30 minutes of warm-up on any day you plan to attempt the marathon.

If you're going with option 1, during the marathon ONLY, you may have team members play on the unused pad to stay warm. You are still not allowed to do this during Raw Output.

The points yielded by the marathons/splits are based off of the max points for each marathon/split * the score obtained on it.

The marathons are as follows:

Set 2: Raw Output


Each team gets 4 hours to try to pass as many of the songs on the list for the team's respective division. Score does not matter. Each song counts only one time, so there's no reason to replay anything. You may change out whoever is playing at any time, provided it is not during a song (I had considered allowing this, but ultimately decided against it). You may not play while someone else is playing a song to warm up-- part of the challenge is coming up with a strategy for your player rotation to stay warmed up without burning out!

You do not get dedicated warmup time for the raw output set. This means you cannot play prior to the set on the calendar date that you're attempting it.

Each song is worth a certain amount of points, and that is determined as follows:

Points = (Steps^1.05*Stream%*BPM Multiplier)^(1+((Difficulty-(LowestDivisionDifficulty-1))/100))/PointConstant

...where:

Steps = Number of steps in the chart
Stream% = Percent of measures of stream versus total measures in the chart
BPM Multiplier = ((SONG BPM-MIN BPM FOR DIVISION))/(MAX BPM FOR DIVISION-MIN BPM FOR DIVISION)*3.5)+1.
Difficulty = Block level of chart.
PointConstant = This is just a value to scale things such that the 'best possible set' in each division is worth roughly 1000 points (This helps us avoid having to normalize scores).


Basically, though, all you need to know is that denser, longer, faster songs at higher ratings are worth more than shorter, less dense, slower songs at lower ratings. Also, to reiterate, you only get points if you pass the song.

The spreadsheet provided with the pack handles all these calculations for you-- all you need to do is take the ID from the first column on the Songlist tab and enter that into the second column on your scoresheet for each song your team passes. You can optionally enter the name of the team member who passed the song in the first column on the scoresheet, which will automatically calculate some extra metrics just for fun if you also fill in the team members on the far right section.

If this is too much trouble, all you need to do is write down or type up what songs you pass in your set and I'd be happy to take care of the data entry and score tracking for you after you're done your set. Just send the information my way! If you keep track of who passed what song, I can give some more interesting statistics, so try to do that if you can manage.

IMPORTANT: You may ONLY select a song if you have enough time left to complete it. I don't expect you to predict song load time or anything, so as long as the timer says you have enough time when you proceed from the mods menu, that's fine.

MORE IMPORTANT: If you back out of a song, you do not get the points for the song. Nice try.

EQUALLY IMPORTANT: Each song is only worth points once. Duplicate passes on a song do not get you additional points.

The list of songs each division can select is below.

Acknowledgments: Huge thanks to Sam, Jim, and Chino, who basically busted ass at my nagging to finish Scrapyard Kent so that I wouldn't have to pre-release any more charts from it. And thanks to myself for that too. Wow that sucked.

Thanks also to ITGAlex, Nav, Rems, Arvin, Okami, and anyone else I'm forgetting that provided unreleased material to me to use in the tournament. Awesome to have some fun, fresh new stuff to use.

Lastly, I just wanna say how deeply I appreciate all of the support and interest everyone has shown in these tournaments over the years. It means a lot.

Please don't hesitate to contact me on here or on Facebook with any questions or concerns-- I'll usually respond quickest if you reach out to me on FB. There may be playing scenarios I haven't thought of or something I haven't explained clearly enough, so definitely speak up; it'll be helpful to everyone if you do so.
