Good lad. I'm aiming at having 2,000 FCs by about this time next year so we'll have a pretty monstrous library to get through by the end of the year, hopefully.

Can see this week being a struggle as I don’t have many songs with female vocals. Ben there’s a few in my wish list that I’ll have to buy maybe, if I do I’ll let you know.

Aye give me a shout man. And also, you'll probably have more than you think. I've got...a good amount. :slol:

If you think I’m downloading your Kelly Clarkson/Pink/other ugh stuff then you’re mistaken! :lol:
Might have to at this rate, at least the bass riffs will be easy.

They're remarkably hard to sing(I think Clarkson is devil heads!), but mercifully I didn't pay specifically for most of that - Pink and Clarkson came with RB Blitz and I had to get a Pink pack for a challenge a while back. If I can spare the funds I might download most of the No Doubt catalogue too.

I remember when we used to play Rainbow six new vegas, i got into a game with randoms. They kept going on about Kelly Clarkson. What doesnt kill you makes you stronger.

I've got them BID0 - it's the Metric song, Michelle Branch and Bad Reputation by Joan Jett.

EDIT: 245 songs in the challenge this week compared to over 1700 last week :lol:

Whewf this is going to be hard, man. I feel like this always seems to happen - an awful song selection on a pivotal week.

Yeah it's not fantastic, but as it's fairly limited it should be easy enough for me to grab 1m LP, so we just have to worry about score and XP. I grabbed some more tunes last night if you're interested - Cranberries, The Pretenders and a couple of others. Gonna possibly get the No Doubt albums today if I can justify the cost this week. :D

Will try and put some XP in the pot a little later! Will be good to get back into it.

Thanks brother! I’ve only got 1 tune on my wish list for this week, will let you know if I buy it.

We’re not doing too badly in the challenge this week! Good work on the XP and LP already and if we get those last few holes in the scoreboard cleaned up we could get quite high on the list for that, too. I think we have a good chance!

In the Rivals hub can anyone see if it's actually registered me playing any songs pls? :slol: I've just done like a 10 song setlist from inside the Rivals hub but it doesn't seem to mention in the activities section "You earned [000]XP for your crew!"

There wouldn't be something silly where it only registers my scores from the next full week, would there?

You’d be unfortunately correct, by the looks of it.

Tried to put in guitar scores for the two songs and encountered a problem with my calibration - it is slightly behind the guitar and strawberry floating destroying any attempt to play it properly. I managed a half decent performance on one of the bass songs but strawberry float me if it didn't make an arse of my attempts at the two guitar songs. Also, I'm shite, and also also, it didn't recognise any score for the Joan Jett one which was shitty.

It’s the spotlights we always struggle with. We need 1 good guitarist and 1 good drummer, then we’re golden.

I think you need to join before the week starts unfortunately. It was a fix to stop the teams where they had people rotating in and out during the week to have more than 10 active players :fp:

I'll put some average drums scores in for the two spotlight songs tomorrow. We need about 80,000XP and about 500,000LP I think to hit the 89% range

I won't get much play in tonight but I'll do what I can. Maybe stream a bit of Rock Band or something. If anyone can play a load of songs this afternoon, I can swing in and get extra XP on vocals tonight as well.

EDIT: Just checked there, another 112,000XP will get us up to 86%. It is intensely frustrating that you can't browse the leaderboard.

That’s all I can squeeze out of my library I think. Not great XP but that is probably due to difficulty. It’s gonna be tight.
