    No news is good news?

    by X-Thor » Tue Sep 04, 2012 4:54 pm

    Okay, so I see this is something that is more or less concerning all of us, and yet I don't see much reatcion to this other than "Well, they'll come... Eventually". So I am making this thread to wonder why on Earth we have spent over a month with absolutely no announcements about 70K (and BTH). This is my first 70K, so I don't know if it is normal, so any "veteran" input would be appreciated.

    Also, since we are not worrying yet (as evidenced by the absolute lack of a thread on the subject), when will it be reasonable to worry?

    Finally, it occurs to me that we can use this thread to come up with theories that explain the lack of announcements.

    In perpetual post-cruise depression/pre-cruise anxiety.

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    Unfortunately we have come to expect the large silences in between announcements. So far the cruises have not disappointed, though, so don't worry about that, come January you will have a great time!

    Long silences, unfortunately, are to be expected.

    Even though UMC in the past have said they would keep us informed we have come to take for granted that we will, in fact, get taken for granted :(

    For the 2012 cruise we had three exceedingly long periods (38 days after the first announcement, 40 days in July/August and 52 Days between October 16th and 7th December) where there were no band announcements. And when they did come they were not exactly worth the wait :P :roll:

    The only brightside we can ever take from it is that the longer we wait, the quicker the announcements will come when they eventually start again.....

    3rd cruise for me...I've come to totally expect the slow annoucments, it's part of the fun that is the wacky world of UMC..:) I've just decided that barring a total change of philoposhy on UMC's part I'll be going every year sao I take the slow annoucments in stride.

    One thing that has helped to relieve my stress on this issue is that I signed up for the 70,000 twitter, so when they make an announcment it goes to my phone, that way I'm not checking the website 50 times a day like I used to the last two cruises.

    To be fair, UMC are not the only ones playing this game it seems.

    The Wacken Full Metal Cruise haven't posted an update on their site since early August, and haven't said anything on their twitter since late July.

    Yeah but isn't that one sold out? They don't have cabins to sell :lol:

    Anyways, I'm used to the waiting game by now after two cruises. Just get me 40+ bands on the ship, enough good ones to make me happy and I won't complain. If I was trying to decide between 70K and Barge I'd be more angry but I'm going on both :D

    I personally would like to add some bands to my 70000 tons of metal slacker radio station.

    This "sold out" statement was to get everyone excited and book blindly without knowing which bands will play :mrgreen:

    Anyway, no announcement is the beauty of UMC marketing strategy and we already had millions of theories why they do it, or rather don't do it :mrgreen:

    I heard that there was a problem with indecisive people that booked the cruise on the first day but didn't pay anything.
    So there are free cabins again because these people didn't transfer any money within one or two weeks after booking...

    And 4 months in my life, goes by so quick, that in the blink of an eye, ill be at BTH's pre party, then Ill be packing for 70K.

    I gave up on being pissed about the announcement thing.

    The main thing to me is that Im going.... And regardless of who is playing (so far), Im just happy to be able to experience this! :3drunks:

    This is also something I've wondered. I'm not worried yet, but say we get to mid November and we STILL haven't heard a thing (not a stretch in UMC land...) will we then start to worry? Sometimes almost feels like we're gonna show up at the port and there's gonna be nothing there waiting for us...

    Hey Traccia - won't see you on 70K, but glad to hear you're attending the pre-party for Barge - I'll be there (just flying down for the weekend) and I'll look for ya to say hi - if you can, try to make it for the beach party that day as well! I didn't go to the one before 70K 2012, but I heard it was a blast! (ps - I'm leaving my original Barge sig wishlist even though I'm no longer going on Barge - curious to see how many will end up being booked - I think Varg will be announced and at least one more. ;) )

    Also, a belated happy birthday! (I spaced off on writing on your fb wall yesterday. :oops: :P )

    Proposition:

    Before panicking, let us seize this moment as the true oportunity to unleash our ludopathy. Let us make bets (that shall be paid in beer during the cruise) as to when the next announcement will be made.

    Looking at the statistics...

    We've gone 42 days without a band announcement for 70k. Second longest for any of the 70k cruises, behind only the 52 day gap between Children of Bottom 16 Oct 2011 and Pretty Maids on 7 Dec 2011.

    September has previously been a good month for announcements - 7 last year (Whiplash, Overkill, Suffocation, Riot, Pentegram, Athiest, Kamelot) and 7 the year before (Rage, Unleashed, Tyr, Gamma Ray, Cripper, Nevermore, Sanctuary)

    So I would say DEFINITELY we will get band announcements for both BTH and 70K within the next 7 days.

    Being more specific I would like to be optimistic and say we will get an announcement in the next 12 hours, but realistically I'm gonna put my money on there being an announcement on Tuesday.

    I'm guessing they beat their former noannouncement gap by 10 days again. So after 62 days they will make an announcement on September 26th.

    I say that whoever gets the date of announcement right gets a beer by everyone who also participated in this.

    NOW, next possible gambles:

    1-Will the new announcement be about a band?
    2-How many bands will they announce next?
    3-What will be the highest ammount of bands announced in one day?
    4-What genre will the next band announced will play? (we can either do it "broadly" [thrash, death, black, power, goth, heavy, doom and folk] or "specifically" [neo-pagan-blackened-melodic-death-folk metal, technical death, etc])
    5-What continent will the next band be from?
    6-How many members will the next band have?

    My guess:

    1-yes
    2-Three
    3-Seven
    4-Broadly: Thrash, specifically: classic thrash
    5-America
    6-Five
