2022 BCB Cup- General info

Postby never/ever » 27 Jun 2022, 21:49

CUP RULES:

1. First round 8 songs. Each round thereafter will add 3 songs per the old skool rules.
2. I'll match everyone up with a random opponent for each match.
3. Voting - and this point cannot be stressed enough-- is open to ALL members of BCB.
4. Everyone votes for their preferred list using "A" or "B" format. Make this as clear as possible for me.
5. You may only vote once in each match. Don't cheat with additional aliases.
6. When the time for each round has elapsed, the results are tallied and the loser is announced in each pairing.
7. In the event of a tie vote, both participants submit five songs and there's a tie breaker match.
8. The winner of the tie-breaker goes through to the next round with those tracks added to their list. They don't submit additional tracks for that round.
9. Survivors will go on to duke it out in subsequent rounds, whilst losers should continue to vote and will bitch and moan at will about their sorry state of affairs in the whingeing thread "Bitter Recriminations".
10. A good time or whatever passes for that is had by all.
11. My favorite part of this thing is new discoveries. You may discover new stuff that flips your switch. There is a thread for discussion of such discoveries once the cup is underway.

First four ties are up- started a bit early!

Voting remains open on this round until Sunday July 24- remember, I live in Australia which means for many Americans voting ends around the end of the previous Saturday. Please give us a bit more than just a letter- it's the acerbic and astute nature of the commenting that makes this always a lot of fun.

The second batch of 4 ties goes up on Wednesday night- this will also be up for a week from the date of release.

I left all lists as posted to me, there's a few that chose artist/song over the song/artist-format. I have checked all links and they were working all correctly at my end.

Enjoy, hope enough of you can vote and make this a good Cup!

A question: how come the 2022 Cup is at the bottom of the BCB Cup page.

Is there a way to change this? It seems very counterintuitive to say the least...

I don't know. Maybe the archived threads get this space and once this cup is done it can all be collected under one thread up there.

Perhaps a mod can bump this up somewhere?

I've tidied things up by making a new archive section.
Hopefully now it's easier to find this year's ties.

The first four heads have rolled....

The last 4 ties wil be tallied on Wednesday - get your votes in by then.

For those who have won their ties, if possible could I get your tracks by 31 of July?

New round is up! All to be tallied next Sunday morning (down under time) so a full week to listen, learn and decide.
