Fantasy Outformation Tour Tournament Instructions, Rules and FAQ's

 
How To Play
Some of you may be familiar with www.phantasytour.com. Fantasy Outformation works the exact same way. You will pick 10 songs and assign each song to 1 of 10 categories. Each category has a specific point value associated with it. You may only enter 1 song per category. When a song in your list is played live in concert and the location or type fits the category in which you placed it, then you score the point value associated with that category.

Deadline

The deadline for submitting your picks for any given tour is the start time for the first show in that tour. You can return to the pick sheet and change your picks anytime before the deadline. After the deadline for a given tour, the pick sheet will immediately begin accepting picks for the next tour (if announced).

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I change my picks in the middle of a tour?
A: No.

Q: If a song I picked is only teased or jammed, do I still score points?
A: No.

Q: When are scores and standings posted?
A: Scores and standings are posted after a confirmed setlist has been added to the Phantasy Tour database. This will usually happen within 12 hours of the completion of a show, but there is no guarentee.

Q: What if there is no second set or no encore?
A: Then no one scores points for their second set picks or encore picks depending upon which was omitted.

Q: What if a song starts in one portion of a show and is finished later in the show?
A: You still only score once for that song.

Q: What if a song starts in one set and is finished in another?
A: Any time a song makes multiple appearances in a show, each appearance counts. However, this does not mean you can score multiple times in the same show for the same song. It does mean that if a song is started in the second set and finished in the encore, players that had that song as their second set wildcard pick will score in addition to those players that had that song as their encore pick. For purposes of the one-timer, regardless of how many times a song appeared in the setlist of a show, it is still a one-timer as long as it doesn't appear in any other setlist during the tour.

Q: What if a song starts in one show and is finished in another?
A: Because of the way Tour Tournament scoring is programmed, it can not identify instances where a song that was incomplete in one show was subsequently finished in another show. In these cases, each instance will count as an appearance of that song and will be scored independently of one another. For the purposes of the one-timer, this means that the song has now been played at two separate shows and is no longer a one-timer for the tour.

Q: What if a song that is started is never completed?
A: When this happens, whether or not the song will be scored will be decided on a case by case basis. As a general rule of thumb, if the instance of that song is only footnoted in the setlist, then it will not score points. However, if the song itself appears in the setlist with a footnote stating that it was an incomplete version, then it will score points.

Q: What if a show is added to a tour after the tour starts?
A: When this happens, whether or not the show will be scored in the Tour Tournament will be decided on a case by case basis. Factors that will be considered include whether or not the show was announced and whether or not it was open to the public. Impromtu performances on off nights are unlikely to be counted as are promotional appearances and recording sessions for promotional appearances, such as those for television and radio. When in doubt, assume that the tour dates as they were published on the Phantasy Tour website when Tour Tournament registration closed are the only dates that will be scored.

Q: Are promotional appearances counted in the Tour Tournament?
A: Promotional appearances and recording sessions for promotional appearances, such as those for television and radio, and generally not counted in the Tour Tournament. You can be almost entirely sure that it won't be counted if the appearance was unannounced. The reason for this rule is that promotional appearances will often stray from the current song rotation to highlight certain songs for a particular marketing purpose (i.e. songs from a recent release, etc.). It is not rare for a band to perform a song at a promotional appearance and then perform it again that night at their scheduled show. These types of irregularities should not affect the Tour Tourament.
