Postby fange » 17 Jan 2019, 03:19

Is anybody keen to run a BCB Cup for 2019?

Lists or song vs. song?

I get the feeling that the "list v list" cup has lost its appeal for a lot of people now. The song v song ones get more traffic and are easier to digest. I'd be happy to run another one of those soon, if we run a poll to see what it should be.

The inherent problem with list cups is that voters, myself included, may tend to gloss over the lists, whereas song cups are more sure to get played and given proper consideration.

But but but.....

It is tradition that the BCB Cup needs to be awarded!

I'd be happy to take part in a song vs song cup, and be declared BCB champion. The 'choose 10 tracks no-one will listen to because the other person picked some 60s rock and soul' format is shit.

Let’s cut out the middleman - just award it to flange.

I like the way you think, gashy.

Everything gets stale after doing the same for so long.
The song vs song-format works well for now but it may get a bit boring after a while. At least you have one Cup working along a different format.

Obviously the succes of any Cup relies on the number of entrants and people continuously voting. I hope that Cups do keep up the morale and invite people to come back here and enjoy them. That's why I enjoy organising them.

I will be gone until early March though so I won't be available for a while.

Songs all the way to the quarters (or semis) then reveal the lists.

Song v song looks a clear winner so far. I can start a poll over in YY on what the "theme" should be: we have a few popular suggestions from last time round, plus one or two new suggestions... Songs Featuring Talking Animals Cup FTW!

BCB Cup shouldn't have a theme. Other than the normal theme of dull music picked by cloth-eared cretins.

+1

That avoids a 'list' of BCB approved safe picks (such as those I'd select) making it to the final by default. Song by song is just easier to digest at this stage given we're well used to 'personal' picks being thrown up now.

We could have a song v. song group stage followed by shorter lists - or Bo3/Bo5 song v song matches - for the elimination round.

I'd say go Knockout all the way. Easier to manage.

Song vs. song looks the clear winner. It's a shame in some ways that the lists format has become unpopular, but i'm happy to play whatever the majority of people want. It's supposed to be a bit of fun, not a hassle.

I've set up a poll now in YY to decide what if any "theme" to go with.

Depending on how many sign up I can decide later whether to go with groups or straight knockout.

If anyone is really offended or upset by my running it please let me know, but I didn't see anyone else offering their services on this thread so I jumped in!
