Rock Band 3 - Carolina Games Summit Rules and Regulations

1) Equipment - We will be providing the equipment that all bands will use during the competition. However, due to unseen circumstances we may not be able to provide a keyboard for the bands. If you wish to play the keyboard, you must supply your own. PRO settings will NOT be used. this means No cymbals, No Pro Guitars.

2) Game Play - This will be a high-score wins tournament. Bands will play a set of Three (3) songs pre-selected by the Tournament Director. The total score of the songs will be recorded and the combined high score will be the winner.

3) Songs - All songs will be part of the original Rock Band 3 game/disc, no downloaded content will be used during the tournament. Songs will be Randomly drawn out of a hat at the time of the event by the Tournament Director. There are 9 songs possible. Each band will have 1 warm up song before the tournament is set to start.

4) Bands - Each band may have up to 4 players. However, you can have 3 players. Bands with 4 players will take priority over bands with 3. Members *WILL* be allowed to play in more than one band. Each band will have their choice of either Keys (supply your own) or Vocals. This is to keep it down to 4 players per band. However, if a band is willing to have a member do Keys AND Vocals, this will be permitted.

5) Miscellaneous - There will be a separate "Showmanship Award" for the band with the most flair. This will *NOT* interfere with the scoring of the songs.

I have the rules done. However, i was only added as Tournament Director last night. Since the post was stickied, i do not have access to edit my original post to include the rules. I am waiting on it to be edited. I have emailed them off already. It's not that i dont care. I was just added as the original Tournament Director is not coming now. I am flying in from Arizona to do this. Otherwise, it wouldnt be happening.

In that case, this message isn't for you. I'm saying that really, when you post which tournies are being held, you should have post the rules also. They KNEW which tournies were going to happen MONTHS ago, and they suddenly make it so some one other than themselves put the rules up.

It should be simple. They have done the tournament 2 different ways. Why not just pick one and be done with it because, lets be honest here, there really isn't many ways you can do a Rock Band Tourny.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating. My team is the best, and if equipment doesn't mess up again this year, we WILL win. I'm just a little irked at how seemingly careless they seem to be towards particular tounaments.

I mean look at that. Call Of Duty: Black Ops had its rules up 2 WEEKS AFTER THE GAME CAME OUT. If I recall correctly, didn't rock band 3 come out around the same time, if not before?
Look at those post times. Wow, quite early don't you think? And the rest were around the begining of the month. Thats a great deal of time really. But I mean, unlike them, we get less than two and a half weeks to practice, while up until then we have been practicing in the dark. While that may be enough time for some, what about the others that will have issues. Alot of people are stacking up days right now so they can take the Tournament day off of work, so they wont have time to practice now since its too late.

You get what you pay for I guess.

Jetsu,

Just want to set things straight here. First, we just assumed control of Rock Band 3, yesterday. The first Tournament Directors had something come up so we agreed to take this Tournament on for Carolina Games Summit.


I get you are a bit upset, but please understand if anything we are ensuring that the game is even played at CGS. LP is flying all the way from Arizona to support this request from CGS Staff. So, let's not point fingers and say nobody cares. We care, that is why we are supporting it. If you have some comments on the tournament rules, settings, etc. then throw them out there. We are all ears.

Don't worry, we run tournaments for a living so you guys will have a great time.


Have a great day.

Well its nice to hear you run them for a living because the 3 years we have come there has always been a problem. The first year...the guy barely knew how to even use the game. So the calibrations were off and there wasn't even a strap for 1 of the guitars. Last year the kick pedal was broken before the last 3 bands played (we were dead last). We finished 4th in points with a broken kick pedal so as you can see it really sucks going to this year after year and having something break lol

My thanks goes out to you guys and thanks to anyone that has a long flight or drive.

punisherthe & Jetsu,

I have personally been trying to find a director for this tournament since day one. No one in our past volunteers play the game so we have been searching all our friends and friends of friends. I did not feel comfortable throwing just anyone in as the director, nor did I feel like we could post rules about a game we do not play.

We were stuck between a rock and a hard place and it was an impossible situation to make anyone happy about.

We are getting a Rock Band set from Best Buy of Wilson and that is all we currently know about the equipment. If you play keyboard, I would bring them with you to be on the safe side.

I am eternally grateful to the FraggedNation guys for helping us out!!!! They were our last hope and if they couldn't do it we were going to have to cancel the tournament.

Believe me when I tell you that none of this was done on purpose or because we forgot. It has been an obsessive priority of mine from the beginning.

Thanks for your understanding!!

Punisherthe,

I guess it's lucky that im a Guitar Hero and Rock Band addict then, huh? :P I will be flying in Friday Night, so (hopefully) i can get the calibrations done that night before the tournament. I will make sure everything is set and ready to go when the tournament starts :)

From what i could tell from last year, there were a lot of complaints about the Bonus points. I opted to remove them this year due to those complaints.

then the tournament is gonna be boring... since real points is all that counts... everyone is going to be standing straight, focused in on the tv so they don't mess up... and it's gonna be like this, hearing the same songs over and over and over again. At least when style points counted... you'd have some people jumpin all over the place and making it a little more interesting.

I was the drummer in the runner up band last year and it was rather hilarious to watch me headbang bc at that time I had super long hair and was very pudgey. Its so much more fun and it keeps the audience awake.

@DBL

Definetly, during a break or a long note, I would sooo try to slide from my screen to the drummers screen! :)

Are the guitars going to be the same as last year? I hope so. I like the buttons that stick out of the guitar. (Like the guitars used for Guitar Hero, not the flat Rockband ones)

My question is regarding the number of people too. Is it going to be the standard 4 members, which the option of switching out an instrument for the keyboard, or are you saying you'll allow a 5 member band with keyboards.

I'm glad performance is out this year. You can still have fun up there, but it's a tournament, and the best scores should be the ones that win.

Post Date: 01/20/11 @ 9:18AM Topic: Re: 2011 Official Rock Band 3 Tournament Rules

I would love to do this again this year, but 3 problems have shown up. One, no band, 2 I haven't played RB in months since I don't bring my xbox with me and my friend who has an xbox never plays, and 3, I still haven't picked up RB3 because of money problems. So as much as I would love to join I think I will have to opt out unless if someone is in or around the Wilmington area, would like to join with me, and would have the materials to practice. I've got a guitar and mic. I play guitar best on expert (I've beaten about every guitar hero and rock band game on expert except for RB3 and GH: Warriors of Rock but again, that's cuz I don't have the money to buy them.). But this is not to say I can't do bass or drums or mic. I know most of the songs listed here pretty well. I have a rock band 3 playlist just so I could keep hearing these songs for vocal so it's not like I have no idea about them. Oh and just to note, when I did this last year, I was with a band called Kung Fu Squigglies and we came in 2nd place (that's with the fact that we found both our drummer and vocalist at the tourney the day of). So if anyone is interested please contact me, and if they still really want to get together but can't make it to Wilmington, then I'll try to see if I can borrow a copy of RB3 and blast through it this weekend and get some practice in.


PS. I want to say keep the style points since it was a blast to rock out on stage last year, but then again. The points didn't really seem to count as much as they said they would. We poured our hearts out on the stage and in terms of score were were never more then maybe 10,000 pts. away from the top scoring band that just sat still and watched the screen. Kinda disappointed in that. If you do decide to go with them, just make it a little more clear how important they are.

Thanks!

But in the event of two bands reaching a tie... style points will help determine the winner. And ima be honest... if only game points count... I'm going to sit down and keep my eyes glued to the tv making sure I get the highest score possible... its going to be boring watching people when style points don't count.

well, i have a few questions about the tourney myself... first, do you HAVE to have 4 people for a band, or can one of them play vocals and guitar/bass? Secondly, will we be using offical Rock Band equipment or guitar hero knockoffs like last year? Third... won't people who decide to play keyboards get more points overall than those who don't? or will you HAVE to choose between keys and mic? (never played on All Instruments Mode so i don't know how that works exactly.) just like some background info before i commit to something like this....
