    I think Dallas is on the mark.
    Aug 7 = 5 months from sailing.

    It will be a ' 5 months we set sail - are you ready?' post.
    Aug 8 = the first band (s)

    Dismember being the first act to announce!

    How have I gone over! Going over the date would be to pick a date greater than the date the announcement is made.

    So, what do you think it will be?

    Will it be like the earliest (apart from cruise one when the first announcement was over a year from sailing), which was the 2015 cruise when the first announcement was mid March, 313 days from sailing?

    OR, will it be like the latest, 2019, when the first announcement was not until the very end of August, a mere 154 days from the sailing?

    I am going to be SUPER optimistic, going with an end-March date for the first announcement. I think 70K #10 is going to be big, its going to be special, and its going to be a year long celebration from now until sailing with everything super smooth, regular updates, lots of puppies, kittens and unicorns.

    #TellHimHeIsDreaming

    March 31st cowboy71
    We now know the answer. 153 days to go, and counting.

    No, it won't be anything special, it will be exactly like any other year, ALESTORM and ANNIHILATOR and TROLLFEST.

    IT'S A NEW RECORD!

    Well not quite.

    It's a bit hard to do the exact math due to the different timezones, but according to the website we are into the 153 days to go zone, whereas by my records Accept were announced last year with 154 days to go - but I use my local time when I make those recordings....

    THUS, according to forum time, Andy posted the Accept announcement here on Friday 31st of August 2018 at 6.15am. Using the 5pm 31st January as the cutoff time, that would make the announcement 153 days 10 hours and 45 minutes from sailing.

    Currently we are 153 days and 23 hours and 40 minutes from sailing, so still about 13 hours before we break the record for shortest gap between announcements and sailing.

    And given that it would illogical even for UMC to just come out of nowhere with "BAM! BANDS!!", I think its safe to say this record is gonna be broken :P

    It's a bit hard to do the exact math due to the different timezones, but according to the website we are into the 153 days to go zone, whereas by my records Accept were announced last year with 154 days to go - but I use my local time when I make those recordings....

    THUS, according to forum time, Andy posted the Accept announcement here on Friday 31st of August 2018 at 6.15am. Using the 5pm 31st January as the cutoff time, that would make the announcement 153 days 10 hours and 45 minutes from sailing.

    Currently we are 153 days and 23 hours and 40 minutes from sailing, so still about 13 hours before we break the record for shortest gap between announcements and sailing.

    And given that it would illogical even for UMC to just come out of nowhere with "BAM! BANDS!!", I think its safe to say this record is gonna be broken :P
    I wouldn't put it past Andy just to spite you, but I truly think this is a new record now. Woohoo, time to celebrate! :headbanger:

    In all seriousness, this being so close to the holidays probably puts me RIGHT out of being able to go this year. That, and the only backup I have for the project I'm currently on wants to take that time off. So, don't think I can if I wanted to.

    The post was at 6:15a PST, so 7h45 before sailing.
    So, the record will be beaten tomorrow around 7:15am PST.

    How have I gone over! Going over the date would be to pick a date greater than the date the announcement is made
    Sir, you need to calm down
    "It's just a TV show, IT'S JUST A TV SHOW!" :lol:

    It's simple. If announcements happen today (hah hah), mbob can share the prize with Statsman and rebirth. So, each one would receive one-third of a free slice of pizza from Sorrento's...and one-third of the normal amount of adulation from their peers. :lol:
    Wait. There was actually a PRIZE? If I would have known there was a slice on the line, I would have put more work into my guess. Are we talking about a slice on boarding day where it's half decent, or a day 3 slice where it's been sitting out since day 2?

    I feel an announcement coming along soon based on Epica's North American "Tour" announcement today and basically confirming that they are booked for next year.

    70K would have asked them to release those dates (with the cruise dates clearly in between the LA and NY shows) as late as possible. Probably looking at within the week..

    That would be really great to see them on the high seas again, but why hide the dates? Let's celebrate it now. Let's get the show on the road already. Let's start rolling the bands out now. It would be Epic-a!

    Because let's make gold survivors so mad, from waiting, they give up on going this cruise, to allow new comers in. A new strategy that would not Epic...a, at all.

    Because they are for sure contractually obligated to. As soon as they released those three dates, Epica confirmed that they are on the cruise, without "actually" confirming it. The bands can't be the ones to announce their bookings for 70K, it has to be Andy.

    Rebirth is not a forum user, I meant to say it was Dallas' second attempt to guess the date since he's our beloved statsman :lol:
    Good thing Andy obligingly didn't make announcements, then. I'd have looked silly (umm, more silly than normal, anyway) and Statsman would have gotten two-thirds of the pizza slice. :lol:

    Actually, a serious question.
    If Andy makes an announcement regarding the start of bookings, does that count as an announcement for competition purposes, or does it have to be a band announcement?

    Who knows, Andy might open bookings this year even before he announces any bands. :o

    Now, WHEN we get an announcement, do we get one? Or a bundle to start us off?

    It's gonna be a floodgate once things get started, I'd guess 10-ish bands in 48 hours.

    This comp is all about the BANDS. So yeah - time and date of first band is what we are working with.

    I'm sure someone here will have a statistic about how many bands have been announced in the first 48 hours after the first band for each year, right? ;)

    It varies wildly year on year, heavily dependent on how long between first band/s and sailing.

    2011 - 6 bands first up (over a year out from sailing), a month until next band
    2012 - 7 bands first up (almost 300 days before sailing), another 3 forty days later
    2013 - 10 bands first up (only 215 days from sailing), then a steady release of bands every few days for the next month
    2014 - 4 bands first up (300 days from sailing), 8 bands announced a few days apart for the next month
    2015 - 8 bands (over 300 days from sailing), 8 more bands over the next week then a long break
    2016 - 10 bands released over 2 days 220ish days from sailing, then another 12 over the next 10 days
    2017 - First band 210 days to go, steady stream of 28 individual band announcements over the next 18 days
    2018 - First band with again around 210 days to go, 21 bands over 8 days
    2019 - First band with 150ish days to go, 28 bands over 20 days.

    Can we at least have the cabin price list on the website already?

    I wanna be able to plan the right cabin here: https://70000tons.com/soon/
    I wanna budget asap.
    I can't. Yet.
    So annoying.
    I've missed the last few cruises and I wanna plan as much as possible asap.
