I also hope that, out of this, you take some genuine pleasure like if it was an hobby. I mean, there are people content with spending 5 hours building a ship inside a bottle. As an amateur photographer, I spent a lot of time organizing photos from the holidays and deciding how many albums should I post, how to divide the photos, which ones to keep and which ones to discard etc etc..... I hope you take actual fun in looking at your spreadsheets and see how the things evolve from week to week!
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Absolutely! It definitely is a fun hobby for me. It can be a bit of work, but I think it's worth it.

After the end of the regular season we will have the following:


- Song Tournaments for each individual Album
- Band Member Tournament
- Album Tournament
- Championship Tournament for the top 64 songs at the end of the regular season.


The order of the individual album tournaments will be determined by reverse order of percentage of songs qualified for the Championship Tournament. The exact order could change between now and season's end.  This will prevent us from going through the albums in order, and will also allow us to get through TA early while the other tournaments are going on versus waiting for it to finish after all the other albums are done. The current order is as follows:

WDADU – 0/8 Songs .000
TA – 1/29 Songs .034
DT – 1/9 Songs .111
ToT – 1/7 Songs .143
SC – 1/7 Songs .143
BC&SL 1/6 Songs .167
ADToE – 2/9 Songs .222
FII – 4/11 Songs .364
8VM – 3/8 Songs .375
DoT – 4/9 Songs .444 
Awake – 6/11 Songs .545
SFAM – 8/12 Songs .667 
SDoiT - 6/6 Songs 1.000
I&W – 8/8 Songs 1.000


This is the schedule that we're going to attempt from now until Championship Match. If we fall a bit behind, no big deal, but I'd love to wrap this baby up by year's end. Bonus points if we end before 6:00 on a  Christmas Morning!


10/21-10/27 - Week 33
10/28-11/3 – Week 34
11/4-11/10 – Week 35

11/11 – WDADU Quarterfinals & TA Opening Round
11/12 – DT Opening Round & ToT Quarterfinals
11/13 – WDADU Semifinals, TA 2nd Round, SC Quarterfinals, BC&SL Quarterfinals
11/14 – DT Quarterfinals, ToT Semifinals, ADToE Opening Round, FII Opening Round
11/15 – WDADU Championship, TA Quarterfinals, SC Semifinals, BC&SL Semifinals
11/17 – DT Semifinals,  ToT Championship, ADToE Quarterfinals, FII Quarterfinals
11/18 – TA Semifinals, SC Championship, BC&SL Championship, 8VM Quarterfinals
11/19 – DT Championship, ADToE Semifinals, FII Semifinals, DoT Opening Round

15 playoff spots remaining, and 29 songs fighting for them with 3 weeks remaining.

The Path That Divides had a decent start to the season. 4-1 after 5 weeks. I guess the fact it got as far as Week 32 before being eliminated is some form of consolation.

A Better Life and Ravenskill remain the last TA songs in the hunt for a playoff berth, but at .500 they are perilously close to being eliminated. It's win or bust for them.

Thanks for posting a schedule, DoC! I am honestly amazed that we have a chance to finish this before the year is out. I assume the extra tournaments have no bearing on seedings for the Championship tournament, right? Once the top 64 are sealed, that's it? The extra tournaments acting as an interlude between the regular season and the playoffs.

I assume that for the whole group currently at 73-78 it's either win or die. If they're next in line to be eliminated, I can't imagine a defeat will still keep them running at the end of this week. Which is a pity 'cause there are many nice songs in there!
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Depending on what the 62-65 songs do, those songs in 73-78 could be eliminated even with a win. They could find them selves 3 back with 2 to play.

Ah, indeed, I forgot about that. It's gonna be a miracle that either of those songs make it through.

Somehow, I missed this post!

Yes, the tournament seeds will be locked after the regular season. I don't think it would be right to include the Album Tournaments since they will be uneven to say the least. For example... Another Day & A New Beginning are currently tied. A New Beginning may rack up 4 wins in The Astonishing Tournament, while Another Day may be eliminated in the first round of a much more competitive Images & Words tournament.

We have a podium at the top!

And basically it all comes down to these:

Caught in a Web (20-13-1)
On the Backs of Angels (20-13-1)
This Dying Soul (20-13-1)
This is the Life (20-13-1)

.588 Winning %. Songs 63-64
Lost Not Forgotten (20-14)
New Millennium (19-13-2)
====================================
.574 Winning %. Song 65
Behind the Veil (19-14-1)

.559 Winning %. Songs 66-69
The Bigger Picture (18-14-2)
The Enemy Inside (18-14-2)
The Shattered Fortress (19-15)
Surrender to Reason (19-15)


Meh,I'd gladly have anything of the currently safe ones except Caught in a Web and On the Back of Angels lose to Behind the Veil and The Bigger Picture.

Ironic how four songs from the self titled are clinging by the skin of their teeth to the qualification train. Dream Theater (the album) could bring a lot of songs forward, or lose most of them in a single (and final) swing.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

That Sacrificed Sons was eliminated while New Millennium remains in the hunt is a travesty!

I'm also a bit surprised that This Is the Life is still in the running.

Hopefully, NM will be eliminated.  I otherwise have no strong feelings one way or the other as to which of the "bubble" songs make it and which don't (although I have a fairly strong preference for CIAW).

Not surprising, though.  I suspect if the matchups were identical, if this were done a year later, it wouldn't fare as well.

Thanks for all the detailed reports!  :tup

It sucks that The Bigger Picture is the first of the eliminated ones.

I assume the four divisions named after the band members are composed going in circles around the top 64, right? #1 song gets the first slot in the first group, the second song the first in the second group and so on.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Nice job DoC!

These are the songs I'm most bummed about not making the top 64:
The Enemy Inside
Sacrificed Sons
A Nightmare to Remember
Three Days
The Path That Divides
The Gift of Music
Moment of Betrayal
When Your Time Has Come
My Last Farewell

Mainly Astonishing tracks, even though the album itself only sits around the middle of my rankings.
Whoaaaahh, ohhh, ohhhhh. Whoaaaahh, ohhhhh, ohhhhhh. Waaah, ahhh, haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaowwwwww

I assume it's the case that we will find a champion in each division before they come together for the tournament semi-finals and final.

In which case, with ACOS and Octavarium in the same division, the latest they could possibly meet is the Myung Division Final. I feel like ACOS vs Octavarium was one of the more likely Grand Finals.

Octavarium’s matchup luck has been abysmal. It’s pretty much guaranteed to have to face ACoS in the playoffs after having suffered losses against Metropolis and LtL in the regular season.

I'm fairly sure that the matches between these songs have always been reasonably close, and this time round, Octavarium wound up on the wrong side of a closely-fought matchup. Octavarium vs ACOS (assuming we get there) is surely too close to call. Could go either way.
