    Welcome back!

    Yes, Now that we have had a break and given the SongQuest the time for individual songs to shine, it's time to return to a proper BotB campaign once again!

    [​IMG]

    For those not familiar with this, basically you will nominate a band and throughout the run of this comp you post songs that will keep you alive in this game, as it is a process of elimination.

    For this edition am going to make it a relatively easy free-for-all in terms of Artist selection.

    Basically, you can pick any artist/band NOT previously used in any of the previous completed editions of BotB.

    This does allow the use of bands from the abandoned BotB:V - unless they have been featured elsewhere.


    In my next post I will follow up by listing all the groups/artists that have previously been featured.

    New season. All New Artists.

    Yes, the prizes will be returning once again.

    You can start nominating your artists whenever you are ready.

    This will be on a first come, first served basis.

    For this First Round you can nominate any song of your choice by your chosen artist.

    Am looking at getting this underway on:

    Sunday
    27 AUGUST 2017
    9pm


    So you have 5+ days to enter.

    Any questions, feel free to ask.

    Good Luck!

    And yes, when the comp starts will have a seperate thread just for the songs, to make it easier.

    Think that has proven to be a really good idea. :50:
