  1. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    This is amazing for Phantom. I often thought BK's sound reminded me of a more modern version of Phantom's old power and majesty. Wonder what factors came into play to make this happen.
  2. 2017 Favorite "Moments"

    BD's bumblebee stuff when they're moving down the 3 lines, the solos in the ballad, the trumpet feature, and of course the "Concord Blue Devils" quote. SCV's build up and release in the ballad, mellos in the closer, and really the whole closer. Bluecoat's closer with the fast approaching drill. Boston's "Witch!" moment with the guard catch, the singer and hornline in the ballad, and the fire at the end. BK's opening soloist to the first big hit.
  3. Hitting Hard 2018

    If anyone in the 10-12 area stumbles next year, Mandarins will take full advantage. BK (6-7), Boston (4-5), Bluecoats (2-3) are my picks to hit 2018 hard. I think Blue Stars could as well, but it'll be hard for them to gain more than 1 spot just cause it's so tight.
  4. Some thoughts on 2017

    Comparing some corps last year and this year: BD: 17, better show although drill of 16 a little better. SCV: 17, more exciting, better overall. Crown: 16, more thematically interesting and engaging. Cavies: 16, close but I think 16 was more fun and felt more cohesive. Bluecoats: 16, felt more refreshing. BAC: 17, more engaging and better design. Cadets: 16, close but enjoyed the music and theme a bit more. BK: 17, amazing music that lacked in the visual that 16 had but still overall better. Phantom: 17, much more interesting show although I felt 16 was performed better. Bluestars: 16, better overall design despite just as strong captions in 17. Xmen: Equally, both solid shows. Madison: 16, close but enjoyed music better. Academy: 16, had more memorable moments. Mandarins: 17, great design. 2016 wins. But both pretty good years imo
  5. Boston Crusaders 2018

    My guess is 2019/20 but they always seem to beat my expectations. They have the staff and design team, and now they're building the member base for it I think.
  6. It's also weird how the writer of the article claims not only best, but best in the corps' long history. So this goes beyond just comparing scores and placements, but now we're talking pre-DCI competitions too. "Best" to me is very subjective.

  8. Blue Knights 2018

    This corps has a lot of stored up potential. Definitely can be over Cadets and within the top 6 area competitively next year with the right design.
  9. Madison Scouts 2018

    They should look at more modern rock or jazzy type of music in my opinion. It would fit them better and it would be refreshing after what I thought was a monotone-ish show in 2017.
  10. Glad to see BAC back in the top 6. Next year should be even funner to watch I think. With the talent likely increasing even moreso and the staff now done with the so called transitional year.
  11. This was fun. Thanks to patrick643 and the others who ran the threads.

  13. Blue Stars beating Phantom in both Visual and Music could mean good things for them at prelims. Cadets are stalling, which could leave the doors open for BK but they'll have to really push it.

  15. Cadets 2017

    I agree nothing is locked yet for both corps, but Boston 100% does not have a "finished final product" quite yet. The fact you think that's so I think is a compliment to the designers and members. Rumors of some changes still coming, and imo captions still have room to tighten up. Should be exciting to see these 2 corps push on the pedal this last week though.
