Just gauging interest: with Rock Band 3 coming out at the end of the month, would there be interest in a RB3 league here at Qt3? Nothing that elaborate, just an excuse for us to put some bands together and rock out once a week.
If you are interested in such a thing, just say so in this thread. If we can get 20-30 people (or more), I’ll make it happen.
I’m interested. I have a fair bit of DLC and play expert drums on all but a handful of impossible tier songs. I have cymbals too, so I’m all set for pro mode. I plan on picking up the for realz guitar once it’s available, even though I’d rather have both a guitar and bass. I have a midi keyboard already as well.* Any word on when the midi interface is going to be released?
I’d be in as well. I play all current instrumetns on Expert, but am by far best on drums and worst on vox. I’d like to get really good at Pro Keys though. I know I’ll be able to do Pro Drums on Expert just fine, but won’t be able to register the hits properly until the stupid MIDI box adaptor comes out later this year.
The way leagues like this usually work is that there’s a song selection process for each week or match, and then there’s a deadline to put up scores. This makes it easier for bands to find time to play, and would also make it possible for any all-European bands to participate without having to worry about time zone stuff.
It would certainly be tidier if everyone was on the 360, but there’s no reason we can’t accomodate a few bands on PS3 or Wii.
Obviously, everyone in a band needs to be on the same platform, but since the bands don’t have to play head-to-head or interact with each other, it’s perfectly fine to have band A put up their scores on a 360 against band B posting their scores on a PS3.
So RB3 comes out next week. My plan is to give everyone a few days to get acquainted with it, and then the Monday after that (Nov 1), I’ll check back in here and see how much interest we have in a league. I’ll bump this thread a few more times between now and then, and hopefully we can end up with something around 6-8 bands.
