    we're working on a system ... any input is welcome. we already have a basic guideline used as past practice. Any band past or new may fall into that margin; to me I don't care if it was the first band announced or last - but the sooner a band is announced may cause said band to be pushed out of the basic requirements .

    I also feel every cruise is going to be different as this award grows some rules will change.

    After all I think it was like 25-50 people from the first cruise that started this as a discussion of a band we thought was outstanding (no real vote) :chug: - thus Cripper won that discussion and boom the Cripper award was born. :cheers: :givebeer: :beerhorns:

    I believe 2015 was the first real attempt at a vote. :viking:

    well it looks like Masacre received the vest in the mail - was hoping for an official hand off on the ship, but at least it has been sent to the last winner - here's to 2016 :cheers: :givebeer:

    I think it's actually VERY cool that the vest travels the world to reach the winner AND that they sent this pic back for us. Y'know, just like how metalheads travel from all over the world to get to 70K to discover these smaller bands and then the vest travels the world to get into the hands of the winner and then back again to be passed along each year.

    Lots of good suggestions in recent posts but yes, these would be best considered and decided upon by the panel members. Maybe they're already doing so in some dark corner of the internet like the Cripper Award Conclave and we'll get the results once the smokestacks spew forth the midnight plumes of ash and metal :twisted:

    My suggestion on the nominee qualification matter is that, if you're gonna use last.fm listens as your criteria, ya limit the NUMBER of entries to a certain amount. So, whether ya end up with 5 bands under 100,000 listens or 30 bands under 100,000 listens, you just take (for example) the 5 or 6 bands with the LEAST number of listens.

    Also curious if there's been any update from 70K brass about how involved they want or don't want to be in any of this?
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Hello everyone!

    Guess what? I finally heard back from the guys and gals of UMC :-)
    There's stuff going on and we are talking back and forth. They basically accepted our suggestions as far as rules and procedures. The winning band will also get exposure on 70TV, which is a badass thing on top of the trophy vest. Maybe there is another surprise waiting, but that would be too much to talk about right now and I better keep my mouth shut about it.

    They wanna do the voting on an official 70k poll and we are currently talking about the details.

    Hope you all are still interested in continuing this! I am looking forward to the whole thing and can't wait to get the poll started.

    Have a great weekend, Britta

    Personally I'd wait until we have the remaining 20 bands in order to set the thresholds. I'm quite sure many unknown bands are still to be announced and there are some bands in this list which I can't see as a Cripper Award contender (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Jag Panzer, Carach Angren or Manilla Road among others). So in the end it would probably be wise to lower the maximum number of last.fm listeners.

    I'm hoping we get no more Cripper nominees! ALL HEADLINERS FOR THE REMAINING 20!!! :bitch:

    Just kidding - yeah its too early to call it, but probably sub 50k would be a more acceptable cut off in the end.

    Yeah every yearwwe've had to make a judgement call by that year. The popularity of last.fm itself changes so that has a hige effect on the cutoff point. Honestly, pretty much all the bands listed there are big touring bands so I don't think we actually have any nominees yet. That's just my 2 cents.

    And they are really good live. Great addition, I hope Andy really considers that. Although the fact that he never takes all the bands touring together onbroad makes it kind of unlikely.

    Not big. Most Metalheads around here probably heard their name but I'd guess that's about it.

    Its where the Cripper award becomes a bit grey isn't it?

    They don't seem to be that well known. They've only got 521 likes on their facebook page, and 8,578 listeners on last.fm

    But, they've been together for over 20 years and have released 7 full length albums....

    They don't seem to be that well known. They've only got 521 likes on their facebook page, and 8,578 listeners on last.fm

    But, they've been together for over 20 years and have released 7 full length albums....


    That being said, we gave it to Masacre this year, and they've been around since '88 and have 5 albums

    Nightmare in the past had a pretty long discography too and they were the winners. I'm thinking we can include them, why not?

    Yeah valid points all around.

    Given past winners/nominees I think it would be unfair NOT to consider Squealer.

    Not sure if there's going to be an official poll on the website this year, but in case not shall we begin?

    I feel weird voting for Starkill out of all of those because they've been touring a lot and I first saw them like 3 years ago. But, rules are rules and they were my favourite band out of the nominees so they get my vote! I have a feeling Nervosa will take it this year though.

    Okay until UMC gives an official post I believe it is safe to say these are our 11 contenders - :cheers: :givebeer:

    8418 Squealer

    5308 Starkill

    1616 Dia De Los Muertos
    648 Distillator
    168 No Raza
    101 Painful
    3 Dead Cross

    sorry if your band isn't listed but we need a cut off and due to past practice I feel this is it - so who do feel should take this years award please only reply once - will also start a thread on FB ......... may change if UMC put up a real vote to everyone. :cheers:

    My vote goes to Nervosa

    With Dia De Los Muertos and Distillator also in the running. The Cripper bands were pretty good this year.

    Abinchova without a second of doubt. I thought Twilight Force would be my band pre-cruise, but these guys blew me out of the water with their performance.

    Yeah I saw 7 of these bands and I thoroughly enjoyed 6 of them. Hope next year has such a good selection of smaller bands. Missed out on Distillator, was looking forward to them.

    My vote goes to Starkill. I was quite sure I'd vote for Twilight Force, and they were still very, very good, but Starkill totally exceeded my expectations. Either of the two winning will make me happy. Good job, guys!

    I was really impressed with this years selection - gonna be a close race I think

    on that note I think we need a dead line - I'd say FEBRUARY 29 gives a little over 2 weeks to vote - hopefully UMC get an official vote up before then - if not we go by our count . Hope everyone agrees. :cheers: :beerhorns: :givebeer:

    Yeah fair enough unless votes are still pouring in at that point, then we can extend it. Also, won't be an official UMC poll. Gonna keep this a fan run thing like it's always been. :bangers:

    Copied from facebook:

    For those of you curious of how the Cripper award began. On the very first 70K none of us had ever heard of this little band called Cripper and in the morning on the second day on the pool deck they absolutely annihilated our minds. The following year someone made an off hand comment about "The Cripper Award goes to Diamond Plate" meaning they were the unheard of band that impressed the most of us. We thought that was a fun idea so we started a thread on the forum and have been doing it year by year ever since. UMC and Britta from Cripper got involved and created a vest that the winner gets to hang on to, but it's still going to be a fan run award just like it's always been. Past winners have been Cripper (obviously), Diamond Plate, Seita, Nightmare, Izegrim and Masacre. Always a fun thing and part of the 70K spirit.
