ROUND2 battle: BEGINNER group OVER. Winner- stopkaiross

1st stopkaiross (1 tire)

2nd flatwax81 (Diversion DVD)

3rd Trickzta

! Beginner / intermediate group riders can repeat their links and tricks in:
+ semifinal
+ battle for 3rd
+ final runs


tnkgaby
Hia
AddisonM
annija
iluminati
flatlandrider13

Some basic rules:
1)I announce the first battle between 2 riders. From the moment there is a 4 day limit for those two riders to film and send the video links via PM to me! This rule is just for fairness, it's nothing if you post it in the battle thread. When both riders have sent me links- I post them in the first and the last post of their group!
2)The video can be edited or unedited, but must be maximum 45 seconds long. When the first battle series in each group are over(8 battles), then the next round adds +15 seconds. So the lenght in series are:
- First 8 battles= 45 sec
- Quarterfinals= 1 min
- Semifinals= 1 min 15 sec
- Finals= 1min 30 sec
This is the maximum of video lenght- you don't have to fill it up compulsory.
3)The run can consist of combos or just tricks, but if edited, they should be with ride ins and outs.
4)For each battle your run must be different.
5)It is forbidden to use old, before filmed videos.
New rules about the video lenght.
1)A subjective point, but I can "allow" the rider to finish his combo and do the ride out if it goes just <10 seconds more.
2)So then there is a question, which combo can be longer?
- The combo which is started not later than 15 seconds before the end of the run.
3) It is hard to tell, if the run is too long, because, it can really contain small tricks in the beggining and the long one combo is pressed in the end, to gain extra time. That will be not allowed too.
For example: If you got two combos: 26 and 32 seconds long. If you put them together in that order, then you get 58 sec and the combo did start 15 sec before the end(as mentioned before), but the main rule wich corrects it all: If your run is over time limit, it is allowed only then, IF THE LONGEST COMBO IS IN THE BEGINNING!
I'll check every video and I'll be critical about the use of extra time!
4)If the video contains title(something meaningful), the video can be longer as the title lenght
5) If the rider can pull a combo for all his given time in run, my judgement on the time allowed will be subjective and slightly positive on allowing using the extra time.
So what is the solution?
- First off, if some rules are disobeyed, I'll ask to correctly repost the video(if only the 4 day period is still active). If not, the rider can be disqualified.
- There is another solution. If you don't want to repost the video, you can still proceed with the battle, but if you surpass the time limit unpermitted, then you'll recieve voting "fines".
For the time amount you overspend, you'll pay with votes.
<5 sec -10% votes
<10 sec -20%
<15 sec -30%
<20 sec -40%
and so on.
6)After both rider videos are posted or the 4day period is over- voting starts. Others watch both videos and vote.
7)Voting is active for 2days. The rider who recieves the most votes in 2days- winner.
8)You can vote just for one rider in a battle just once. Keep in mind it's subjective, but try to be objective a bit. Stick to these principles:
a) bike control
b) originality
c) difficulty
9)As voting has finished, the winner of the battle is announced.
10) The winner countinues to fight in the finals(if they are). The looser fails. (There could be some additional battles later)
11)The next battle starts after the previous battle ends.
12)Remember to check out all of the gruops and vote, because one battle will happen in each class simultaneously
13)Some changes into limits or structure can occur.
14) The winners will recieve prizes (not known for the moment)
15) Questions please in the main signing up thread!
16) If you are busy, please let me know I can arrange your battles. The list of those who are busy is in the signing up thread!


And the winner of beginner group is...stopkaiross. Congrats! Votes 34 : 7.

1st stopkaiross (1 tire)

Please, post the questions in the main thread which is already packed, he he.

I know it would create some order and stuff, but it would be hard when something changes. You know a lot of riders said that they are busy for a period and I can't expect when someone has unexpected plans.

I'll keep it random. Maybe when the finals are clos, then it will be clear who is battling who and when!

I just keep typing :D

A note:

If you want to battle in a particular period of time, then just send me a message and say in which battle you could enter. The maximum lenght of a battle is 6 days, often less.
Just send me a message and say in which battle you would like to be. For example after the count of days. That would fasten the things a lot and some would know when to check the forum.

I'm writing on behalf of addison, He had minor surgery on his ear today, and things aren't great right now, he fainted and opened some stitches and bled a ton, so he's not able to edit and put it on, he hopes people understand and will gladly forfeit to flatwax81. Good luck to all of you and hopefully He will be back on his bike and back voting and lurking global Flat soon!

toothpaste on the ear sounds like a bad idea right now, I have 20+ stitches all over my ear, I'm back from the hospital, They are confident It was a fluke of dehydration (I wasn't supposed to drink before surgery or eat) plus losing so much blood (surgery and at home) that it slowed my heart down enough to make me blackout and fall into the floor.

I feel a bit better now and have a large amount of T3's to try and help with pain.

I'm excited to see the battles, If someone drops out later on in the first round I will hopefully be back in good enough health to edit the footage I have.

Thanks for the get well wishes on here and facebook.

I'm sorry for so many paragraphs, I'm out of it right now.

f*ck! flatwax and I would have been quit a battle, my footage is similar megaspins with some variations, hang fives, fwd spinning steams, and where you tailwhipped I had a one footed pedal manual in a circle.

Congrats nonetheless.
