Liberty Gala Event: DefenderVision 2021 - Official Results!

2021 The Liberty Gala Event


DefenderVision is born out of a desire to grow and continue popular "Vision" style events that have in the past included RaiderVision and the original concept of FRAVision made by the Founderless Regions Alliance. FRAVision was first hosted in 2012 and was originally created by Wopruthien, who has graciously given us permission to begin this new iteration of the event.

Even though this style of event has taken place in many different forms throughout the last decade, the history and sentiment behind it are important and deliberately preserved in the logo for this year. The event was created to be open, fun, and competitive as it brought together players from across all of NS, and it is our hope as organizers to replicate this same experience for all who wish to participate.

FRAVision placed a strong emphasis on cultural exchange in meeting new players and exploring new regions via regional forums (an experience difficult to replicate in modern NS), so we'll do our best to facilitate these same values despite the change in platform. DefenderVision will be hosted in this Gameplay forum thread and a DefenderVision discord channel in The Liberty Gala discord.

This event, as with its predecessors, is open to anyone and everyone so we hope to see you all there!

The Liberty Gala Discord




What is DefenderVision?

As already mentioned, DefenderVision and its predecessors come from a concept based off of the real-life Eurovision Song Contest.

Participants can submit songs on behalf of their region made by individuals, in a group of individuals, or as a whole region to be judged in one large song contest. Winners will receive individual awards in addition to bragging rights/event notoriety. This event is independently hosted as a part of the wider 2nd year event of the Liberty Gala festival which will have more information released in the coming weeks.

Regardless of whether music is your thing, you're for sure to see some talented and typically hilarious entries over the next few weeks!

How do I submit?

The event will progress in three stages: submissions, judging, and then awards.

Submissions:

Submissions are open from October 6 to October 20

You may only submit one song per person. There is no limit on how many songs can be submitted on a single region's behalf, but regions should remember that having votes in their favor split between several entries can hurt their odds of winning during the judging period. For this reason, we now offer a players the option to flag their entries as "non-competing".

You can submit any sort of song you like. It can be a cover you sing of a real song, you can write an original work, or it can be about...anything! Writing lyrics related to NS is another fun and popular option. It's your choice!

Also, you can sing, but you don't have to sing. Simply playing an instrument is a valid entry. Don't be afraid to get creative and take advantage of the artistic license!

If you do make an audio submission, the song must be hosted in whatever way we can listen it. Youtube or a reliable online mp3 host is recommended. If you're not sure how to do this, feel free to contact event coordinators for assistance. Text submissions can be posted in any readable format.

Not sure what to submit? Check out these past examples!
"Grey Warden's Boogie", a Witch Doctor parody by Crushing Our Enemies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDNsUFu5kT0
"Ursibae", a Nicki Minaj Superbass parody by Numero Capitan https://soundcloud.com/numero-738990012
"Because I Got High", a Afroman parody by Big Bad Badger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErNYfPOxUDs
"Dear Mr Delegate", a lyric parody of Pink's Dear Mr President by McMasterdonia https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?p=37323449#p37323449


How to Submit

Participants, please post the following form in either this thread or the DefenderVision discord channel to enter themselves into the contest:
Post Title: (Name of individual, group or region)'s Entry

Name of Candidate:
Inspiration/Description of entry:
Entry: (link to video, song or posting of lyrics)
Why should you win?!

Do you want this song to be flagged as non-competing (e.g. will not be judged as a part of the competition) Choosing this is only advisable if your region has already submitted a song.


All submissions will be posted on this thread if not already done so. Anyone who submits will also be allowed to vote in the judging period.

Judging

Judging will take place from October 21st to October 27th.

Once the submission phase is over, all contestants and the group of regional representatives will vote on their preferred songs in a designated discord voting channel for DefenderVision. Regional reps will be offered to any regions explicitly invited to the event, and regions may choose to forgo a rep if they so desire. These regional representatives may vote however they desire.

Judges will rate their top 5 songs in order of preference, awarding their favorite 12 points, 10 points, 8 points and so and so forth. There will also be a poll held in the event discord to select a crowd favorite for all the event attendees.

Awards, you say?

The results and awards ceremony will take place on October 28th

The following are historic awards given to the first, second, and third place ranked entries in the contest:
  1. First Place Entry - Whole Note Award (Gold)
  2. Second Place Entry - Half Note Award (Silver)
  3. Third Place Entry - Quarter Note Award (Bronze)
  4. Winner of Public Poll - Crowd Favorite

The following awards are given, and all winners will earn the right to a neat award image that they can wear in their signatures.



That should be everything! Don't hesitate to ask any questions below and brainstorm with your friends to come up with some truly unique! It's always exciting to see what people come up with and this is no exception

Well, I must say it is quite shameless to purposefully avoid posting submissions to Raidervision in order to take the event back with a rebranding in Defendervision. For an event that is supposed to supersede the traditional lines of raiding vs defending I would've thought defenders would have at least waited a year to attempt to reclaim the hosting of Vision.

At no point was anyone asked not to submit or participate in RaiderVision. I realize you’ll find that claim unlikely as you’ve already stated in discord, but there was no broader attempt or cooperation at play here.

This is your final reminder for all of our procrastinators (you know who you are) that your DefenderVision submissions must be in by the end of tomorrow (EDT)! Keep in mind that audio, lyrical, and covers are all acceptable submissions so don’t think too hard on it

You can submit on this GP forum thread or down in #submissions in TLG discord

Apatosaurus Entry

Postby The Liberty Gala » Tue Oct 19, 2021 12:50 pm

Name of Candidate: Apatosaurus
Inspiration/Description of entry: Based on the meme that TBH is dead :p I had procrastinated this until now and to save effort will just be submitting the lyrics :p
Entry: (link to video, song or posting of lyrics)
Once upon a time,
There was a flock of birds.
The birds were a lot of Black Hawks.
The Black Hawks raided many regions,
Until they began to die.

Eventually,
All the Black Hawks died,
And now,
The Black Hawks are dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
Dead, dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
Dead, dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
They are dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
And no more hawks are alive.

The darkspawn hunters,
Hunt for the wolves,
As there are no more hawks,
To hunt.

The Black Hawks are dead,
Dead, dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
Dead, dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
They are dead.

The Black Hawks are dead,
And no more hawks are alive.
Why should you win?! Because TBH is dead!!

Sincluda Entry

Postby The Liberty Gala » Tue Oct 19, 2021 3:36 pm

Name of Candidate: Sincluda
Inspiration/Description of entry: My deep love of James Monroe
Entry: (link to video, song or posting of lyrics)

Just a lonely Monroe
Working in a lonely bureau
He made the Era of Good Fee-eelings
Just a Virginia Gov'
Made his way to Pennsylvania Ave
He made the Era of Good Fee-eelings

A President in partisan times
People arguing, no end in si-ight
But Monroe, he ended it alri-ight
And underneath him, there was an Era-a-a-a-a-a

Of good! Feelings!
Who cares about that compromise?
Missouri
Got nothin' on thi-i-is
Monroe! Doctrine!
Every nation gets to be independent
Monroe listens to their wish

No opposition in 1820
Everyone liked him, both you and me
I'd do anything to vote for him
Just one more time
Most like him
Few do not
His spirit lives as his body rots
Oh, the legacy never ends
For the Era-a-a-a-a-a

Of good! Feelings!
Who cares about 1819?
Nobody
Was panicking anywa-a-ay
The Era! Of Good!
Feelings. Everyone was happy
All thanks to James Monroe

Don't stop enjoying!
Monroe created that feeling
Era! Good Feelings!
Don't stop enjoying!
Happy
Era! Good Feelings!

Just love Monroe!
And remember that I love him so
Let's have! A good time!


Why should you win?! I dedicated a week of my life to only simping for James Monroe, and this is one of the best things that came out of it. This helped me win a simping contest, it better win out here.

Why should you win?! I absolutely should not.

I like Python's submission for the sole fact it made fun of the black hawks. Don't even matter about anything else, that was inspiring.

Somebody To Raid


Can anybody find me somebody to raid?

Somebody (somebody) ooh somebody (somebody)
Can anybody find me somebody to raid?

I work 'til the fendas go home
At the end (at the end of the raid)
I take home my WAs all on my own
I write down (down) all my hits (hits)
And I start to say
That our feats will be surely chastised
Lord, somebody (somebody), ooh somebody
(Please) can anybody find me somebody to raid?
(He sets hard Everyday (everyday) I try and I try and I try
But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm growing lazy
They say If I don’t update every day
Ah, got no stam-na
I got nobody left to update with
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

(ooohs)
(Oh, Lord)
Ooh somebody, ooh somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to raid?
(Can anybody find me someone to raid)
Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my targs (you just keep losing and losing)
I'm OK, I'm alright (he's alright, he's alright)
I ain't gonna face no defeat (yeah yeah)
I just gotta get out this inactive spell
One day (someday) I'll shitpost GP , Lord!

Inspiration/Description of entry: Use Somebody, Kings of Leon https://youtu.be/gnhXHvRoUd0
Entry: In Lieu of a Homebody

Have you seen Roavin around
always look around and all I see
anime faces fill the places he can’t reach

We know that he's a homebody
We know that he's a homebody

Someone in lieu
And all he shows is his critique
endless covers
rediscover the indies

We know that he's a homebody
We know that he's a homebody
Someone in lieu

Here in the fight while he’s washed-up,
We’re off to keep
Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat

I hope it's gonna make you focus
I hope it's gonna make you focus

Outrun the plea
Outrun the plea
Outrun the plea, homebody

Go and let it out

Someone in lieu, homebody
Someone in lieu, homebody
Someone in lieu, homebody

Have you seen Roavin around,
always look around and all I see

Venatrix Entry

Postby The Liberty Gala » Wed Oct 20, 2021 4:40 am

Post title South China Sea
name of candidate: Venatrix
inspiration/description of entry: Business man telling his story of running away from the CCP after criticising them, wile living in Australia.
Entry: Lyrics, (ran out of time)
I Came all the way from China
would I tell a Lie to you
they all call me a crazy kangaroo
Well… I got a story to say
Something to tell you!
It all begins just one day-y-y
-
I was mighty fine
Sitting in my apartment 1000 meaters in the sky
Selling origami paper to Japan
When the government did say:
“Your making to much money.
This is not the way.
And we Not trading with them anymore anyway.”
And I did say:
That’s nothing but insane.
It’ll stuff up the economy
social order,
The whole county.
Can’t you see?
I think I upset the CCP.
Because I was flying in my privet jet
When out of no where came j-20s
Stealth jets that’s what they be
And they came chasing after me
This aircraft here has no defence
What am I? a national security threat?
Cuse they shot me right out of the sky
Thought I was gonna die-e-e
-
Now I’m flouting in the South China Sea
Oh here comes a destroyer and submarines
I don’t appreciate the CCP
Chinese communist party
You can never stop me
-
Came rather close to the Phillipines
Got picked up by a fishing fleet
The explained to me there on the same page as me
Cuse chinas interning their water ways
Violating their fishing rites.
So they gave me a fishing boat
And the biggest motor they could find.
And sent me on my way-y-y
-
So now I’m going across the South China Sea
Oh there goes a ton of destroyers and submarines
Don’t appreciate the CCP
Chinese communist party
You can never stop me
-
And I went past some islands, Malaysia and Indonesia.
It’s been quite awhile
Coming up to Australia
Better not be eaten by a crocodile
Found my self in the port of daiwan
And they did asked me:
“Who are you, when you from”
And so I explain…
Well I came all the way from China..
Would I tell a lie to you?


Do you want this post to be flanges as non-competing: competing please.

Why should I win? This is the first time iv actually attempted to create a song, I have lyrics to many other songs Iv never gotten around to. Iv tried my best, but iv come across many problems with recording. Iv practiced a lot an can hum the tune to my self.
