Post COMPLETED: The BraveBoard Top Metal Bands Tournament!
EDIT: IT'S DONE! viewtopic.php?f=1&t=153617&p=3500104#p3500104

Original post:

http://challonge.com/BraveBoardBand

Seventy-nine bands enter - only ONE will be the winner!

Posting all of the band polls at once would flood the board, so I'll be doing it in stages. The polls will stay open for ONE WEEK - from Monday ~7-8:30am to the following Monday from ~7-8:30am. The results will be shown in the bracket and updated then.

When new polls are started, I'll note them in here.

This will take a few months to buckle it all down, but I know we'll have fun doing it.

FYI about the bracket placements, I inputted the bands into Challonge and then randomized the brackets multiple times.

And if there are any changes or improvements you think I could implement while doing this, please let me know!

May the best band win!

We mods do not have the power to stick threads.
Only administrators can do that guys.

I see Napalm Death vs. Slayer as a matchup??!!! Jesus, this should be at least a quarterfinal or some shit.

And then I see Nails vs. Dio and I lol'd out loud...

Chalk it up to the random shuffle of the brackets! I could've spent hours trying to make things out differently, but where's the fun in that? Let them fight!

Post Re: BraveBoard Top Metal Bands Bracket!
I realized bands like Testament and Agalloch got missed after I went live with this. We had a week to make a list of the bands. I added some we forgot to the best of my ability. Unfortunately there were always going to be someone forgotten.

And double-unfortunately, once the brackets are live, I cannot go back and add to them.

No Testament or Agalloch this time!

I figured Testament may have taken a good run too. I'm a fan boy, so I was curious how they'd do.

This is an awesome idea, thanks for doing this!

I actually printed it out and filled in how I predict the board will vote.

My bet is that Maiden wins.

My personal bracket somehow ended in Cannibal vs Slayer.

I think Slayer would be the ultimate winner for me, regardless of the path it takes to get there.

No no no you see, that actually sounds tempting, but I'm hoping for someone to take on Maiden and come out alive...

It's the Braveboard - no band takes on Maiden and lives to tell about it.

Motorhead should. They never had a Bailey or Dianno era dragging them down.
