Not really a regular but I'll try and sneak in. Otherwise I'll wait and write a review.

Adding the next few players tomorrow morning. I will then be laying down a scheduling system so if you have any suggestion before I make a test run schedule, post them now.

Then once a beta scheduling system is made, I will choose our first two players by random and present our first theme.

From there I will select the new challenger from among the players and the champion will pick a new theme.

Scourge441


The avatar that endlessly toils.
The signature that never changes.
Scourge441, named so for the 441 men he has killed, comes from an older time in UG. A time where dads were Jewish, colorful swastikas were stylish, and when monuments to sorrow were erected. His wisdom and experience gives him a vast plethora of knowledge to pool from, but will new age UG simply dismiss him as a wrinkly balls old man?

Time will tell.


Born Headless


An absolute underdog, since my memory of you is limited to making a dick comment toward you, but in the Your Move arena being an underdog simply means it's easier to surprise your opponent with a dagger to the face.


Zero Substance


Don't you listen to hardcore or something?

As far as scheduling goes I think three days would be perfect for the listening/voting period.

Example;

Today two players enter the arena, a theme will be declared, and tomorrow they offer up their albums of choice. Friday/saturday/sunday will then be used as the listening/voting period. Monday we declare the winner and set up the next match.

To me that seems simple, fast paced, and also gives enough time for people to set aside and listen.

Give me your feedback and we can get this going.

^ That sounds perfecto to me.

Also how long should reviews be [just to be safe]? Like, a paragraph to a few paragraphs, or should/can they be longer/more in depth?

A paragraph of substance would be fine. Longer and more in depth would be fine

Not really worried about length, moreso I want to hear something more then "I liked it"

Winner is the album that best exemplifies said theme, correct? Say album A is masterpiece that kinda fits the bill and album B is just average but perfectly sums up the theme , album B wins right? Or are we gonna have to cater to the reviewers?
#92
Well you're rating the album as it fits to the theme, musically and aesthetically. So while it's all opinion base, I myself don't see a shitty album fitting a theme at all.

I wouldn't think too hard about it.

the challengers who posted that hashtag... two are picked randomly to present the music... then everyone else explains that they have listened by writing a review...

Quote by VampireGoldfish
Anyways, if you would like to participate as a player, please make a post with

#aNewChallengerApproaches

in it.

Note that a player will be involved in matches, you do not need to sign up to cast your vote via review, you only need to show up and listen.

anyways... just look back and read the past few pages... its fairly simple.

Riffmast


Winner of UG's prestigious "Prettiest Hair" award, Riffmast has one thing that sets him apart from rest of the Metal forum, one thing that no other user has nor could ever aspire to achieve.

Talent.

A cleric of chaos, a herald of plague bearing frequencies, a wayfarer of the dark avenues between stars and space, Riffmast has an undoubted amount of knowledge in the workings of music and a passion to match. I myself have found much in common with this apocalypse machinegun and look forward to what he brings to the table.

But one thing may hold him back..... A secret so shameful....

He is an art student
atleast that's what I remember him saying

So this is how we're going to do the first one and we'll see how it works. Keep in mind this is work in progress and is subject to change depending on how WE see fit.

Day 1
Players are selected
Theme is presented

Day 2
Albums are presented
Listening/voting process begins. You may present your review/vote whenever you wish between now and the final day.

Day 3/4 (Subject to change)
Listening days. This is when hopefully everyone is listening/reviewing/voting. I will be collecting votes and tallying it up.

Since we are all flaky shits, the schedule will be highly flexible to begin with. If enough people are on tonight, whose up for me presenting our first theme and our very first two players?

Sounds good to me,I garentee you that it will take longer to get everyone's votes/reviews in.Perhaps make it so peoples votes are voided if they cant get them in at a certain time.

So using an absolutely random process, our first two contestants to enter the Your Move battle arena have been chosen.

And boy, what a good one.

Our first ever match will be between two heavy weights....

VS

This match was chosen using an absolutely random process, I could not help but grin at the results. Grin like a mad stupid idiot.

This makes me happy.

Our very first theme will be chosen by me since we do not have a current Champion. And the theme for our VERY FIRST MATCH IN THE YOUR MOVE BATTLE ARENA WILL BE.......

Swords and Sorcery

A Metal staple. Dio slayed dragons in the 70's, heavy metal embellished itself with fantastical imagery since the 80's, and quality Metal revolving around this theme is still made to this day.

Gentleman, please present your album before tomorrow afternoon to provide adequate listening time.

Whose music will reign supreme?
Lets get it on.

Posting now because I might be too busy tomorrow.

My friends, enemies, Magero, and everyone inbetween, allow me to whisk you away to a land of adventure, untold glory, and magnificent incantations to quell your thirst for greatness. I present to you ...

Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame.

Fear not what tomorrow brings dear brothers, for we have the wind at our backs, our swords on our belts, shields strapped to our arms, and mighty steeds underneath us to carry us to the unknown beyond our sight. Have no fear, and let us sate the desire for ultimate glory in Middle Earth!

I still have Monuments to Sorrow's Ground 00 on my computer. I'm not sure if HMS's upload forum is still active but I think they had Devoured Seraphic Remains (although I seem to recall Spynal not finishing that because of various issues).

Kinda weird how fast the torture funeral doom style fell off the map. There were, like five bands that played the style and I don't think any of them are currently active.

As for the contest, it would seem I've had proggy's album on my computer for a while and have not listened to it yet. No better time than the present.

Absu-The Third Storm Of Cythraul


Were Heavy Metal bands may be cheesier, the bombastic black/thrash attack presented of Absu's masterpiece seems far more real, swords clash with ferocious force and Proscriptor is Texas Metal's resident pretentious sorcerer, claiming to be a real user of dark magicks in an old American BM documentary. This is my offering to you, I'm sure all the tracks are on youtube.
