Gamer of the Month Challenge: The August Blitz


Video Game Scoreboard is pleased to announce the second “Gamer of the Month” challenge.  Just like in July, the winner will earn a free VGS T-Shirt, gamer profile article on our website, Gamer of the Month status for the month and a chance to compete in the 2013 Gamer of the Year competition.

The August Blitz Challenge is Rock Band Blitz on either the Xbox 360 or Playstation.  Songs will be broken down into sets of three, with a total of five sets.  The songs we have chosen are all songs that come with the game and do not require additional purchase – other than the original game purchase.  Please see the rules below for an explanation and the break down.

The Rules: 

  1. This months’ competition runs from today, Aug. 2 to Sept. 15.  August winners will be announced in the second half of September, once all scores are verified and places tallied.
  2. Players must submit recordings and scores for 3 of the 5 song sets listed below.  Each submission will be given points based upon which place they are at in the competition.  The person with the most points at the end will be named Gamer of the month.  Only the songs listed in the sets are applicable to this contest.  No exceptions.
  3. Each set of songs submitted must follow the general settings defined in the Game Settings area below.  Songs in a set must all be played.  If a song is not played, the entry will be invalid.  Songs CANNOT be substituted in sets.
  4. Players may compete on either an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.  Please be sure to list what system it is done on and be sure to clearly show it as well.  All entries for this contest will be ranked the same, but will be tracked both separately and combined on the scoreboard for cohesive record keeping purposes.
  5. Recording rules must be followed, no matter which platform is submitted.
  6. Players may submit in any of the ways we accept, however, if you are mailing submissions in, please be sure to have them postmarked no later than Sept. 10, 2013, so we can receive them in time for the Sept. 15 deadline.
  7. The August Blitz Challenge is this: Players get to play a minimum of 3 sets of songs – each set contains 3 songs.  The point total for the 3 songs will determine the placing on the challenge for that set.  Players may freely chose the power ups they want to use for each song.  All three songs must be played for any set submitted.  There will be 5 sets of songs selected for this contest.   So, if you chose Set A, Set C, and Set E, you must play all three songs in each Set (sets are defined below).  Failure to submit each song will result in disqualification.  You are not required to submit them in order of the list or together as a set, just as long as they are submitted and defined in the contest is fine.
  8. If you submit fewer than 3 sets, your scores will be entered into the database, but not into the contest.
  9. If you submit more than 3 sets, we will select the sets that rank you the highest in the competition for the contest structure.
