Intermediate Judges
-That Joe Miller
-2flat2furious
-Ronny @ Kassel
-Ginman
-ondo

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 50 seconds long. When the first battle series in each group are over(8 battles), then the next round adds +20 seconds. So the lenght in series are:
- First 8 battles= 50 sec
- Quarterfinals= 1 min 10sec
- Semifinals= 1 min 30 sec
- Finals= 1min 50 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, filmed videos before the competition.
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 starts not later than 20 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 20 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 the judges will take this seriously considering voting.
6)After both rider videos are posted or the 4day period is over- the judges watch the videos and vote. They send their votes and explanations to me via PM.
7)As votes from judges are collected, the winner of the battle is announced.
8 ) The winner countinues to fight in the finals(if they are). The looser fails. (There could be some additional battles later)
9)The next battle starts after the previous battle ends.
10)One battle will happen in each class simultaneously
11)Some changes into limits or structure can occur.
12) The winners will recieve prizes
13) 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![/b]

Another hard one

vote goes to raddad67 (Mark)

Lurtz uruk- very smooth, but combos Mark showed I rated higher.
Althought, all respect to lurtz uruk, he didn't even re-film his run.

& Marks colour matched hat and bars :D

style battles as well!

Mark's video has the in your face attitude, overdubs, and thunderclaps vs. Lurtz w/ the crystal clear optics and goose bumpy Massive Attack track.

Front wheel vs Back

Black vs. White - Just Kidding@!!!

I think Mark had harder tricks and combos though Lurtz did ride really smooth and confident.

Very very close battle.

Going to have to give it to Rad Dad this round. The difficulty between the two runs was very close together. Half lash to lardyard and stepping through to stick b is no joke, but neither are rad dads messiahs and cliffhanger combos.

In the end I think the variety of Rad Dad's tricks won the round, but if Lurtz had thrown in something outside of rear wheel scuffing with the same degree of difficulty I might have given it to him. Rad Dad just had a higher volume of tricks with greater variation.

As I said though, VERY close battle.

I think Mark had better style, variety, and a higher degree of trick difficulty.
Both were awesome videos though!

You know, Im gonna have to give this one to the water tower.

His progressive yet altruistic stance suggests that no matter who goes thirsty during their sessions, he will always be present to be the provider. His massive stickman-ish static stance is the heart of oldschool while trying to entertain the new.

Oh, and yea, mark gets the edge. After watertower.

This was indeed close. My vote goes to RadDad, for me it was the greater number of combos with a slight edge in difficulty. Great job, both guys!

Sort of wondering why the beginner group has already gone through several battles and intermediate is still chilling on its first one? Not implying that my video is anything worth speeding the process up for (because it isn't =), but weather is getting really weird out here in Vegas if I need to film any further. Probably have to film in my garage again like in my first clip... =(

I think it's because Ginman hasn't been on to vote yet for the intermediate.  But for the beginners, apparently the judges have nothing else to do today but rate battles ;D
