    2020 Final Fantasy Rumble Qualifiers

    It's now time for one of my favorite parts of the annual game: the qualification stage for next year. It's an opportunity to hear some lesser known but still impressive tracks from the series, and it's a chance to decide who will and will not be surfacing for the competition this time a year from now.

    FFShriners get unique say in the qualifications; I don't share them with my off-site voters. Everyone is welcome to vote, but if it seems like a lot at once don't feel obligated to participate. I see this as a more casual thing, and (most of it) remains open year round. For whatever it's worth, I like to consider a whole range of reasons--to bring back my favorite tracks, certainly, but also to give less common fair an occasional shot in the main game, to ensure comprehensive representation (FF1 must qualify a track in order to appear in 2020), in general just to keep it interesting from my perspective. You can vote for as many or as few entries as you wish. You can wait until next year and see how you feel about them at more of a distance. Just have fun with it:

    The qualification round will remain open until April 2020.

    Tracks which did not appear in 2019 will always win a tie.

    If you wish to change a vote, please do so in a new post. I will be updating my list as votes are cast, so an edit will likely be missed.

    2019 losers will always be listed first and paired with tracked that did not appear this year. As with the round of 128, no two tracks will ever face each other twice in the main qualification round.


    Pre-Quals: In order to expand the game further, I added a second tier of qualifications last year. This will allow the game to continue to grow without having to permanently remove any entries. Losers of last year's pre-quals and new entries will square off new entries against the historically lowest performing tracks. Winning these matches only guarantees appearance in the subsequent main qualification round. Voting for this stage opens now and will remain open until the 2019 game ends, at which point I'll post the main round, which is 52 matches all at once. If you would like to propose further new entries, do so now, with sufficient time for them to be voted on before the main game ends. Note that the cap for a single game is currently 16, meaning I won't accept additional FF8 tracks and FF4, 6, and 7 are capped at one additional entry.

    New this year: Tracks that joined us in the third run of this game have had their chance and are now susceptible to pre-quals.

    Pre-Qualifications round:

    Now that I'm playing the game, I should probably correct the inaccurate track title I've been using for half a decade. It's Windurst.

    Pre-Qualifications round:
    Primarch Dysley (FF13, never qualified)
    In the Sky That Night (FF13, 1) <-- i'm a sucker for masashi's tunes - reminds me lots of saga songs, and i love the light-hearted tunes he makes.
    Rolanberry Fields (FF11, never qualified)
    Rebellion (FF12, 3)
    The Federation of Windurst (FF11, never qualified) <-- bittersweet

    There's some bittersweet choices there.

    Think I'm going to change my vote to Windurst actually. Having now explored all four major cities of the original launch, it was my favorite location by far, and I think the music really brought it to further life more convincingly than the others.
