Thanks for the knowledge.  And thanks for doing a great job with this tourney, DOC.

You're welcome. Glad you're enjoying it.

Sadly, I think I have just seen the end of the road for BAI. If it wins the division, it has to face A Change of Seasons in the Championship Semis. I will do my bit to support it (because of the fairytale of seeing a Mangini-era song go so far in the tournament), but I can't see it getting past the defending champion.

If it beat LTL then it definitely has a chance, but it'll be close.

Congratulations to all the Division Champions! Surprising to see a No. 2 seed in there, even if it is Learning to Live, an established classic.

Also, I was wondering if you'd have a 3rd place match. Glad you are. See who the bronze medal goes to before the biggest matchup of them all.

Interesting.  Definitely a great Final Four.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Great finals here. All definitely deserved, in spite of the exclusion of Metropolis. :lol

Championship Semifinals
1. A Change of Seasons defeats 1. Breaking All Illusions 22-20
1. Octavarium defeats 2. Learning to Live 23-19


ACOS returns to the Championship Match, where it defeated LtL last year to win the tournament. Will it go back to back?

3rd Place Match
2. Learning to Live defeats 1. Breaking All Illusions 21-19


Learning to Live avenges its loss against Breaking All Illusions in the regular season. The score of that match, 20-19.

Overratedvarium isn't even close to my top 60, but I had fun voting in the league. Thanks for running this, DoC! :tup

Not my choice, but congrats to 8VM.

Thanks, DoC!

A Change of Seasons is dethroned after twice winning the League. Octavarium is a worthy champion. What a fun 7 months this has been! Thank you DoC for hosting this tournament so well!

This basically. Though I've gotten used to being in the minority on that issue, and I'm still psyched to see a few other songs doing that I love doing so well in the tournament. Thanks DoC for organising all this.

It would be good to have something in the Archive showing the Top 3/4 for each season of DT The League, as a reference point/"Hall of Fame". Maybe even showing the winners of the old DT Survivor.

Yeah, nice to see a new winner, and doubly nice that it's my fav DT song.

DoC... props to you on managing this.  It's a massive undertaking.

Well done Octavarium :D And thanks again DoC!

It's just a shame that it's been over 8 years since either of the finalists has been played live (as far as I can tell)!

Maybe DT could acknowledge the fans' Champion (this probably being the biggest DT fan community) by adding the winning song to their setlist for at least a couple of shows.
