@ pronkindough

well, style points cost us second (and possibly 1st) last year so i'm glad the pressures off... besides, if all super easy songs are picked, it'll be easier for performance additions anyway, not to mention that last year they picked the WORST possible songs as far as performance goes (with the execption of Battery, of course...)

@prokindough

I would've actually loved to play the songs from last year. The Trees is my favorite song to play on RB2.

@pronkindough, so you picked the songs and was actually allowed to play in the tourney with the advantage of knowing all 3 songs in advance?

You got to pick? Nice, usually in tournies you cannot. They pick a set you play and that is how they determine the score for all bands.

No, I suggested a list of 6 songs and he chose those 3... but even then, I. didn't own rock band at the time so its not like I had that big of an advantage...god... gamers are bigger babies than soccer players

its not us being "babies", it's the fact that when i take a day off from work where i could earn overtime and spend money on gas and tickets to drive an hr+ away i would hope to not have to worry about anyone having an unfair advantage. i wouldnt get so wound up if this was just a regular local event, but this is supposed to be (one of) the biggest gaming events in NC, so im going to treat it as a serious competition.

It should be allowed so that the people that come who don't have all their members can still participate and enjoy their time at CGS

yeah i agree, it would really suck if a band wouldnt be able to play cuz its only missing 1 member. that almost happened to us in '09 if my husband didnt step up and play for us (he originally was there for support and pics/video, wasnt prepared to play).

Playing in more than one band would be really fun! 'Cuz I like playing expert guitar, bass and vocals. :)

i'm not saying they were bad songs... in fact, they were pretty good songs... they just weren't good performance-wise. but i would like to try out my vocaltar skills for the tourney if they'll allow three people to participate. I'm just worried that any band that decides to use keys would have an unfair advantage for some songs as opposed to those who don't. and speaking of songs, there is one song in particular that i'm surprised wasn't on the list and one song i'm shocked that they would even consider playing. just my opinion, but it would be a lot better if they replaced "Rock Lobster" with "Plush", but again, i'm not in charge so if "Rock Lobster" IS picked, i guess the audience will just have to suffer through it x number of times...

(I sure do post a lot don't I? Haha) If they put some easy songs, why didn't they at least put Misery Business by Paramore? The difficulty levels are pretty good, and it's a song sung by a girl. (and there are mostly girl vocalists in this tourney so far) Plus, it's a fun song to rock out to.

that is true... "Misery Business" would also be a good substitute for "Rock Lobster". if anybody is wondering why i'm not thrilled about it isn't nessassarily the song itself, but the background "ocean noise" is almost unbearable to say the least... now imagine it being played 10-15 times in 2-3 hours...

@Ishbo, i would love to have you in our band if its allowed, and i wouldnt mind moving to bass if you want expert vocals. i made a post about it on the PMS forums if you want to talk about it somemore. wish i knew ahead of time our bassist wouldnt be available so i couldve asked you first!

Thanks for the Comments, Suggestions and Questions everybody!

1) You will be allowed to play in more than one band.

2) Songs - they MIGHT be updated. Nothing official as of yet. As of now, the songs will stand as is.

I played most of the chosen songs in a setlist last night, and I swear, if Rock Lobster gets chosen for the tourney, I'm walking out. Terrible song for vocals! WTH was Harmonix thinking choosing that over Love Shack?!

Thanks for answering some of our questions LP :)

@SilentJo - See my point about "Rock Lobster"?

@The Real LP - i still 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 (depending on the song, but more often than not?) Lastly, will each band get a practice/warmup song of their choice to get used to the equipment like last year?
