Title: Tournament of the Picks - Season 1 Grand Final
Post by: KennyMan666 on August 25, 2014, 05:37:52 AM
Before we start, click the image to start downloading the picks. I figure not everyone has all old picks still lying around.

We've come a long way.

The first Tournament of the Picks started in November, 2009. Yep, we've done this for five years.

In those five years, we've gone through a total of 32 Tournaments of the Picks. The format has gone through some minor changes and streamlining and stuff over the years, but at the core, it remains being a thing about music. We had a joke pick TotP. We had mega-TotP.

And now, we have 32 picks that have been TotP winners. One TotP ended without any winners, but that's fine, because another one had two winners due to shenanigans.

Thus, it's time to wrap the first "season" of TotP up with the grand final, featuring the 32 winning picks from past TotPs.

This tournament is going to be true double elimination, so we're going to have two rounds eventually that are devoted entirely to wrapping up the loser's bracket. In my current game plan, these rounds will be rounds five and seven, and round eight will subsequently be the big final showdown.

For this tournament, all picks are treated as completely divorced from their original submitter when it comes to what can fight what. Given how different people have different amount of wins, it seems fair. When randomly rolling the first round matches, it ended up not happening that any person's two picks went up against each other, but no thought will be put into that later. I don't have a drawn-up bracket - what fights what will be randomly rolled up each round. I will re-roll if a match is rolled that is identical to a match that's happened before, if possible.

So let's get going. I decided to, for this one, include the names of all the artists in the list. 'cause that's no secret anymore.

ROUND ONE

1. Star One - Sandrider vs. Infected Mushroom - Serve My Thirst
2. Pendulum - Watercolour vs. Magic Man - Out of Mind
3. Owen Pallett - Scandal At The Parkade vs. N.EX.T - Dead Silence
4. Michael Kiwanua - Tell Me a Tale vs. The Sparks - This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us
5. Caravan Palace - Jolie Coquine vs. Sixto Sounds - The Savior of Dream Land
6. Jick - Ode to Booze vs. My Chemical Romance - Welcome to the Black Parade
7. Disasterpiece - Counter of the Cumulus vs. Groove Coverage - God is a Girl
8. Silverchair - Point Of View vs. The Aquabats - Cat With 2 Heads!
9. Inspector Gadget - Dr. Claw Theme vs. Prophecy - Chekan Winter
10. Yuki Kajiura - Key Of The Twilight vs. Jimmy "BigGiantCircles" Hinson and Magnus "SoulEye" Pålsson - Yeah!
11. Yousei Teikoku - Deep Sea vs. REDALiCE - Porky of Porky of Porky of Porky
12. 3L - Extend Ash vs. goat - Scourge of 1691
13. Holy Fuck - Royal Gregory vs. Yuki Kajiura - The World
14. VVVVVV - Piercing The Sky vs. Avenged Sevenfold - A Little Piece Of Heaven
15. The King of Fighters XIII - Diabolosis vs. Parov Stelar - Sugar
16. Star One - Digital Rain vs. Ar Tonelico II - BASARA

And all the rest
So the picks in this tournament are 32 out of an astounding sum of about nine hundred (the spreadsheet has 905 rows, but we've had some duplicates) picks that have gone through TotP. Let's not forget them!

Here's something you can do, if you want to. If enough people do it, I'll tally it up at the end of the tourney, so the "deadline" for doing this is when voting for the final round closes.

List your ten favourite picks that have been in TotP - excluding the 32 winners and excluding your own picks!

Remember to consult the TotP History spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkIFT8NUzuLadEV2cVdUcmZDTnpEck1xUWxVXzNaU2c#gid=0) to jolt your mind about it.

And also
Five years, 32 TotPs. Got anything else nice to say about it? Got a TotP that was your favourite? Found any new bands to be a fan of? This is a time to reminisce, so I'm inviting any and all posts about these five years of TotP. Let's talk the musics.

With that said...

Get to voting!
