The Arkham Knight is like a dark reflection of Batman. He seems to know everything about him: tactics, gadgets and weaknesses. He has used this knowledge to create an identity that mocks the Dark Knight and creates a striking image on the battlefield that inspires his army and terrifies the enemies.
Why should our favourite elite gymnasts have all the fun? We
can hold our own Worlds just after Montreal 2017. It’ll be super chill and hopefully super fun!
Anyone is welcome to participate!
Interested? Here’s the
There are two competition categories, the A-division
(who perform easier skills – think USAG level 3 or below) and the B-division
(harder skills – USAG level 4 and above).
Divisions are per event, not per
competitor. You can compete all A,
all B, or some A and some B.
Routines comprise of 5 skills in the A-division,
and the full 8 skills in the B-division. What
counts as a “routine” is chill. You can
just perform all the skills in a row, but it’s more fun to include choreo!
MAG and WAG compete together
You don’t have to do all four events if you don’t
want to, but there will be an All Around competition.
The definition of “vault”, “bars,” “beam”, and “floor”
are pretty relaxed. If you can use the
real deal, that’s awesome, but otherwise a patch of floor and a plank of wood
are completely acceptable. Use what you’ve
got! Just, please don’t do anything silly and/or sue me. UPDATE: trampoline will be added as a fifth event! It will not count for the all-around.
Skill values (different to the elite ones) will
be assigned. They’ll be different for
the A and B divisions. There will also be
connection bonuses on the relevant events.
The Vault, Bars, Beam, and Floor videos will be
released on the first day of Worlds 2017,
and voting will open to the Gymternet.
Voters assign an execution score, out of 10. The top and bottom 10% of scores will be dropped,
then the rest averaged. This will be added
to the difficulty score.
If you submit a skill that’s not in the FIG COP,
it will be named for you (obviously unofficially, but still, get cracking on
those original skills guys)
Please let me know if you’d be interested in this event! You
can either like this post, or reblog it.
Reblogging would be better, because more people will see it and we’ll
get more competitors! (I’m only a small blog, so not many people will see this
unless some of you guys put it out there)
If you’d like to help organise this, come up with the rules, compile the video, or do anything else, please reblog
this saying so, or shoot me a message :)
If there’s enough interest for this to go ahead, I and
whoever wants to help will put together a “proper” COP with all the skill
values, connection bonus, and more specific entry instructions. Entry will open at the beginning of July, and
close in mid-August.
The COP will be released ASAP (before 1 May) so you have max
time to code whore the sh!t out of any dodgy skill valuations. That should give you two months.
I’m excited for this to go ahead, so please reblog/like to
let me know if you are too!
Again, this competition is really relaxed. We’ll accommodate for absolutely anybody!
