    Twilight Force for me

    They absolutely rocked despite being unlucky enough to perform twice in the "less good" venue... Props to them :cheers:

    This does not count Facebook, and is an unofficial count, for an unofficial contest :), but here is what I show as the forum only tallies so far

    Nervosa 12
    Twilight Force 11
    Star Kill 5
    Abinchova 4
    Koi K Utho 3
    No Raza 3
    Sklamold 1

    Looks like it's a battle between the power metal fans and the thrash fans for the cripper award. If the award was divided into categories, we would have our two clear winners :)

    Hi folks!

    I hope you all had a fantastic Cruise :-)
    I am really happy to see the voting for the Cripper Award 2016 is spreading all over the place!! That's awesome.
    UMC just put up an official poll in this Official Thread, so let's try to get some more people to vote. About 40 people posted their favorite choice here so far - but 3000 sailed with the Cruise :-)

    Spread the news!!

    End time will be: Thursday, March 3 2016 - 11am PST / 2:00 pm EST / 8:00pm CET

    In the meantime I will talk to UMC again about the possibilities for the winning band to represent themselves and their local scene on their platform!

    Prost! :bangers:

    My vote is for Nervosa but if I could vote twice I'd give one to Distallator too. The folks who watched them will know!

    I saw Nervosa play both sets and they killed it both times! I also really liked Abinchova, they kicked-ass too. However my vote goes to Nervosa, way to impress!

    This years voting really makes me feel a little sad for the 2nd place, no matter if it's going to be Twilight Force or Nervosa.
    I didn't see Nervosa because I don't care for that kind of Metal, but it seems both bands did really good performances and the voting feels a bit like "do you prefer Power Metal or Thrash Metal?" because of that.

    Absolutely agree with that, and I'm from the other end of it. I didn't see Twilight Force because Power Metal is not my thing. I think most years breaking it into categories wouldn't make much sense, but this year might be an exception.

    I propose that if it comes down to these two in close vote, I say we declare them both winners. This is a community award so we can make the rules what we want if we are all in relative agreement

    I didn't see Nervosa because I don't care for that kind of Metal, but it seems both bands did really good performances and the voting feels a bit like "do you prefer Power Metal or Thrash Metal?" because of that.


    Absolutely agree with that, and I'm from the other end of it. I didn't see Twilight Force because Power Metal is not my thing. I think most years breaking it into categories wouldn't make much sense, but this year might be an exception.

    I propose that if it comes down to these two in close vote, I say we declare them both winners. This is a community award so we can make the rules what we want if we are all in relative agreement

    This isn't the first time it's been a close race. It was the exact same thing last year between Claim The Throne and Masacre. Other winners like Nightmare and Seita barely won. In the end this is just a dumb little fan award we made up it's not like this is some huge opportunity that they're getting snubbed on. There's only one vest, only one winner I think is how it should be.

    You kinda have a point there. Lets look at the (BROAD) genres of each of the 10 bands nominated:

    Power Metal - Twilight Force, Squealer
    Folk Metal - Abinchova
    Death Metal - Dia De Los Muertos, No Raza, Painful
    Melodic Death Metal - Starkill
    Thrash Metal - Distillator, Nervosa
    Industrial - Koyi K Utho
    Unknown band with a famous drummer Metal - Dead Cross

    So you could almost say there are really only 3 bands to choose from for those that like the lighter side of metal, and 8 for those that like the heavier stuff, thus dividing the voting. Therefore in this case the odds are stacked in Twilight Force's favour.

    But Nervosa seem to have a lot more 'fans' generally speaking - even though both bands have almost the same number of Last.fm listeners (6,000), Nervosa have almost 165,000 "likes" on Facebook compared to Twilight Force's 8,000! So its probably just levelling the playing field a bit that Twilight Force have less 'similar' competition.

    Not sure why the huge difference in facebook likes to listeners there - better marketing? The fact that they are all female? Who knows!

    I'm guessing they paid for some online advertising which got them a lot of facebook likes. I have thousands of bands liked on facebook but I wouldn't say I'm in a dedicated fanbase for all of them but would even recognize them by name. Last.fm is more accurate because you can't fake people listening to your music, it's the most common measure for promoters when they're looking at the popularity of a band.

    As for the "do you prefer thrash metal or power metal" comment, yeah it's kinda true but like I said this is just a silly game we play so it doesn't really matter. I don't think the fanbases are as polarized as you think too. Some people are more vocal about loving one or the other but I think more people are open minded and would give the bands an equal chance.

    :lol: who is going to be the winner if there are several polls around?

    Is this poll on the forum here now going to be the only "official" voting or do you combine the two counts in the end?
