Welcome! I'm glad someone beat that score I put up. Glad to have you in the competition. If you'd rather choose DLC for the week go ahead, it's your choice. In general more people play on "on disc" weeks, but it's ok either way: you win, you choose. Biggest thing is not to choose something that was chosen before, and you can see all the previous choices in weekly competition sticky at the top of the forum.
Also glad to hear you found that scoring FAQ. I am hopeful the patch will fix some of the wonkiness with groove bonusses, and in particular I am hopeful they will fix how video lag impacts groove.
Entered my final score - only a small improvement. Was making good progress through the beginning of the week, but had to take Friday and Saturday off. Had some time today, but just couldn't get it going again.

Well, we're done for this week. derrick, are you tallying the scores?
Wish I had more time this week to work on this one, I really like this song!
Got my score in a little too late, which is a bummer. Still had fun grinding this one after a tremendously busy week, was a great way to let off Steam on Saturday and early Sunday before all hell broke loose in my neighborhood. Way out of my skill range right now, but this falls cleanly into my list of songs I'd love to one day be able to master (in maybe three years, haha).
EDIT: Double dukes, according the spreadsheet I would have placed first for Div IV too, dang.

Great scores everyone. This was a tough one. (I seem to say that a lot.)
I never did get a better score. I can get through the solos in RR, eventually, but I can't play them very well at all in performance.
That did not stop me, however, and a video is on the way.
Here it is.
Prettycooldude your score still counted because you posted at 446 utc time which the contest ended at 5 utc.
The summary of the scoring is to set your video lag to 0 and do whatever you can with your setup to get get rid of as much of the audio lag as possible. This way you don't have to play so far ahead (of the audio) to get groove bonuses. You will be visually playing ahead of the note highway though. Most of us are really trying to play on the beat, because this is more fun (and pleasing to the ear).
It will be interesting to see what (if anything) happens after the patch on Aug 14 with groove bonuses.
Were you getting Groove Bonus or " Early Groove Bonus"?
Regarding the 97% streak, please post those next time. We have an honorable mention for highetst Accuracy (which you won anyway with your 96%) but it is always great to capture the best that someone was able to do on a particular challenge. Same goes for highest note streak.
Finally, next song please!
