[Image: avatar_12278.gif?dateline=1534102298] Hey, it’s Alex. The OS Event Committee will revive Battle of the Bands as another recurring event next to Monthly Contests.

This will be a collaborative competition that will commence every 3 months. For those of you unfamiliar with BotB, the original post can be found here.

General Information

Battle of the Bands is a collaborative contest across the site. You will form a band of at least two members and work on sequences together to compete with other bands.

When your team is satisfied with their sequences, post them under the respective Battle of the Bands thread. Make sure to list all your team members and give yourself a band name to identify by!

Each battle is labeled from Q1 - Q4 and represents which quarter of the year it takes place. We will announce the next battle every 3 months, totalling in 4 battles for the year.

The scheduling for Battle of the Bands is as shown below.

Oh my god. This looks so good.
