Dream Theater the League – 2021

Hello friends! After having off for 2020 (what a yeah, huh?) the DT League will return to a Polls and Survivors forum near you very soon.  We will be going back to the Division format to ensure a somewhat level playing field.

Once the 2021 season begins, we will have a 20 week schedule followed by album tournaments, and 16 song tournaments for each Division.

I’m looking forward to helping Octavarium return to its rightful place on the throne.

Cool, it's a tournament for a band that I can finally participate in!

Well, I would've been able to do the Haken one that happened this year, but it was already close to the end by the time I'd listened to all the albums they had...


I’m looking forward to helping Octavarium return to its rightful place on the throne.

Octavarium absolutely deserves the throne...


...but A Change of Seasons exists.

A Change of Seasons vs Octavarium is the classic championship matchup that we were denied last year. May the heated rivalry take place where it belongs: the tournament finals.

I'm guessing the bottom 27 songs just aren't participating at all then. We had 152 songs in the last League. We have 125 this year, including the play-in songs.
