Etterna Charting Tournament 2023 - Final Round

Welcome to the final round of ECT2023! Everyone who submitted in round 3 should have received an email with the synced .sm and audio file! If you can’t find it, check spam!
This track is going to test your ability to chart more complex and intricate music, and I look forward to seeing how everyone varies in their approaches!

Due to the complexity of the track this round, there will be judges who will choose their favourite charts in voting! The way the judges points system works might change depending on how many people submit their charts this round. If it does, I will explain it clearly in the round 4 voting thread next week!

Round 4’s song is “Surge Storm” by “Kurorak”! Check it out below!

Just for clarity, I’ll go over the rules each round!
What ISN’T allowed:

No insulting/attacking other peoples entries
No harassment or bullying of any charters or organisers involved.
Must be a 4k (4 key) chart
You must submit the chart as a .sm or .ssc file. If you’re from another rhythm game, I’m sure there are many ways to convert your filetype to .sm/.ssc
No cutting the music. (The music is at most 3 minutes, don’t worry)
You may alter the provided sync however you like, but if the chart is off sync it will be disqualified
From round 2 onwards, you MUST submit a chart each round or you will be removed from the event.
Sharing your chart before the end of the event, to avoid people knowing who made what.
If making modcharts, don’t put anything malicious in them (Obviously)
Collaborations are not allowed
Didn’t think i’d need to add this but don’t be a twat and judge peoples charting speed by looking at the dates of a submission (seriously, come on)

What IS allowed:

Dumping is allowed.
Gimmicks (Such as the cmod gimmick or “rolltech” and other obscure playstyles).
Modcharts (Including lua stuff).
Xmod charts.
Visual things (such as colour theory).
Any other creative/unique thing you can do with a song, so long as it uses the required formats (.sm or .ssc)

You have until the 18th of may to chart this track.
Best of luck, everyone! I can’t wait to see peoples approach!
If you have any questions or complaints, you can leave them in this thread OR send me a message privately on the forum and I’ll answer them when possible (I can’t promise an immediate response, but I’ll try respond as soon as I can)

Holy poly. Will the players true names be revealed after the contest? There are a couple charters who I’m really interested in now.

The charters who submit in round 4 will be revealed after the event is over, because I want to congratulate all of them and get them the respect they deserve for actually going through with all 4 rounds despite how understandably taxing it’s been for them

done with the chart :]
I just know imma get clapped tho :sob:

Submissions will close tomorrow at 2PM GMT+1.

Submissions have closed. Round 4’s charts will be posted soon!
