Hi all its almost that time of year again!
At the October expo this year we will once again be running an open tournament like last year, only this time we are giving you all enough notice about it to turn up rather than rushing it together on the last day!
It will be on the Saturday at around midday, you can register at any time Friday or Saturday just come looking for me (Kris) or ask any of the friendly members of staff and one of them will definitely be able to point you in the right direction!
The rule set will be similar to the one we used last year in that its on an equal ground for all beginner and expert players (In case you weren’t there, last year the top 3 were someone who played on difficult, someone who had never played on a machine before and one of the members of staff who were filling in to give us an even number. In that order) so everyone has a chance to win, and for the added incentive this year we have the championship trophy to play for as well as a number of minor prizes for entrants who make it past certain rounds!
More in-depth rules and details are available here:
Register your interest there and feel free to ask ANY questions about the tournament. Looking forward to hearing from you all and seeing you there!
Is it that time already? Cricky! It is, Time for another Rock Band Tournament! Our first Rock Band Tournament on Rock Band 3.
Just have a look out on the Saturday for the 4 strapping lads in blue shirts bearing the DDRUK Logo, hanging around a Rock Band setup if you want to enter.
Here is a quick shoot of the rules:
Traditional 4 person band’s only (Guitarist, Bassist, Vocalist and Drummer)
Play the seeding song which is decided on the day from this list:
Just like Heaven – The Cure
I wanna Be Sedated – The Ramones
Stop Me if you think you’ve heard this one before – The Smiths
Get Free – The Vines
Killing Loneliness – H.I.M
Heart of Glass – Blondie
Get into the Top 4 and stay there
Come back at 2 O’Clock to see if your band is through to the next round
Pick a song for your band, as the other 3 bands do the same, then play all 4 with the lowest scoring band being eliminated.
Pick another song, as the other 2 bands again do the same, lowest score gets elminated.
Final’s will be each band picking a song and playing the final setlist of 2, Highest score wins.

The second of DDR:UK’s tournaments for the weekend, returns us back to our roots! The DDR:UK Dancing Stage Tournament! Kris has kindly offered to run and organise this, and this year we are running a few tests. The details are below:
We are running a free tournament for expert players at the MCM Expo on Saturday in an attempt to try out a new tournament layout. Registration starts at 11am and due to the new layout you can play the first set of songs straight away! So if you’re able to play on expert difficulty on Dance Dance Revolution why not step by and have a go just to see how far you can get? Come find Kris at the DDR:UK Stand for more details!

Hopefully we will be able to please everyone as we strive to do at every event, however there have been some major changes within the DDR:UK locations and storage facilities in the last few months, so everything is in a bit of a shambles! Unfortunatly we will not be able to bring you a complete list of items that we will be bringing along due to this fact, however I will try and make an update while I am at Telford, with any major changes or issues.
We shall be bringing, however, our usual mash of DDR arcade machines, fighting games, rhythm action games, and if we can fit it in the hire van, Initial D too!
We would hope to see as many of you at the event as possible, and give us a poke if you are about.
Rock Band 2′s dominance as the platform of choice for playing music with tiny plastic instruments had to come to an end one day, eh folks? What better way to see it out than with our usual Rock Band Tournaments at the Expo, So it came to pass that the day after Rock Band 3′s arrival, we would have our last Rock Band 2 tournament at the October MCM London Expo.
What follows is a full write up of all the scores, With a little happy thrown in here and there.
Just wish to shout out to everyone and say, Happy Christmas to you from the DDR:UK team! I hope the day goes smoothly for everyone!
I know its a short message, but I am also posting this while switching the on call from one person to another!
