Tried to comment on each video to show appreciation for your entry. Most of you are skillful players. But also many people showed a lack of understanding of the structure of upper combos. So I gave higher ranking to those who delivered some structured combos or obvious ideas combined with some skill. From the rest of competitors, the higher ranking was given to those who recorded nicely structured upper combos thus showing an understanding of how they see uppers and which aspects they are their credentials. Lower-ranking was given to those who did difficult combos without any structure or idea. So the determining criterion for me was understanding of uppers while difficulty played the second role. Smart uppers are what we’re looking for in 2021.

Abood

Tidy uppers. I appreciate that you pay more attention to key elements of combo and its structure than to “hardcoreness” itself. Love to see various chest control.

Ahmadreza

Hectic uppers. I missed the structure of combos. Some moves weren’t that clean. Some of the promising parts of combos were interrupted with some chaotic moves (mostly rollers variations). I guess it was due to a lack of control when it comes outside of your “regular upper routine”. Backhead tricks were strong and structured, but i miss such confidence in other upper areas.

Ala Balti

Chaos itself. I admire your speed and solid control on basics like sideheads and atms. But i coulnd’t recognize any structure behind your skills. Shoulder bounces combined with hands revolutions looked promising – that’s some idea. But this idea needed some further development. In my opinion, you’d better do few short clips with a smart connection between moves than just trying to put everything you can in a chaotic and fast upper sequence. Tricks are good, but structural thinking is a must to make a step forward.

Alex Rivera

Controversial video. Your first combo was so nicely packed and accurately executed that i realized how much you’ve improved throughout all these years in skills and understanding of uppers. The execution was just good, the structure of the combo was logical and interesting. Same related to the 2nd combo. But then 2 rev combo came – and i was just disappointed. The execution was poor, and the structure of the combo was missing here. Sometimes that happens when we focus on “hardcore part” of the combo (which was 2rev in this case). The last combo was also controversial – some parts were good, but the style was shaky and the whole combo looked more like just a random sequence of upper moves than like a “predetermined” idea. I’d recommend you keeping it closer to 1st combo – it was difficult, stylish and smart enough to beat any 2rev thing you can do.

Angel

Hardcoreness of your uppers predominates everything else. It’s not good or bad in general. But to win such competition you need a balance between hardcore tricks, smart ideas, accurate execution, and unexpected decision in your combos. In this video, there’s hardcore stuff that destructs the balance. The structures of your combos were way too simple – you focused mostly on 2 revs while combos between them were very repetitive. That’s a common thing – I did so. But to step up your upper game you should learn how to make the whole combo look interesting and fresh. If you fix this, you might finish on the podium in the competition. Just don’t hurry up and build your upper picture properly

ANIMESH

Good upper control and hectic combos. You have strong roller control which helps you keeping your combos flow in any situation when the ball is close to sideheadstall. But apart from this, there’s a lack of ideas in your combos that can help us detect your signature way of building an upper combo. When i say “signature” i don’t mean you need original moves – you can start searching for unusual connections between existing tricks which will make your uppers look less repetitive and predictable.

Azart

Есть стильные куски. Но в целом мало плотности в апперах. Большая часть видео построена на длинных комбо, в которых у тебя не так много разнообразия. Было достаточно снять одно хорошее комбо, показывающее весь твой арсенал. Стоит сфокусироваться на коротких комбо типа тех, что были в конце видоса. Так ты быстрее прокачаешь скилл, контроль и наберешь разнообразие сочетаний между трюками.

Bauda

Hardcore itself. I like how smooth your upper flow is while keeping difficulty on such a high level. I miss the variety of ideas – at such a high level of tricks, this becomes necessary if you wanna reach the next level.

Bulgara

Solid and promising in some parts, in some part looks a bit repetitive. I found myself thinking that I miss pauses in your combos. You tried to keep dynamics, speed, and flow, but you couldn’t keep the same speed of thinking. That led to repetitive decisions in combos which, in turn, doesn’t allow you to show the full potential of the upper skill you have. Don’t hurry up when you feel you repeat too much. Do some slower parts of a combo to refresh your mind and prepare yourself for the next dynamical part of the flow (if you intend to do dynamical uppers ofc)

CAS

Raw skill, but a promising way of thinking. Some of the tricks you performed were bendy or poorly controlled sometimes. But unexpectedly you showed some interesting thinking. E.g. I liked how you improvised with a true shoulder-shoulder-shoulder-true shoulder sequence in the first combo. You tried to show your true shoulder ability and chose a simple, but stylish way to do it. Also liked the throat stall combo. Some more skillful guys got fewer points because they missed even simple structure. So keep making your uppers more clean and smooth, but also remember about smart and simple connections that you’ve shown here. Good job.

Сharly

Good upper skill performed with intention. I must admit there were some unclean or shaky moves which sometimes make it less pleasant to watch. But what i like the most is that you tried to pack your upper skill based on orbit, shoulder moves and stalls into short combos where each move helps us understand your intention and variety of your skill. You tried to avoid unnecessary moves and focused on your power – that’s what i wanna see in qualification. I loved first half of the video more than the second one though.

Daniels

Proper upper video and some material to work with. I appreciate that you paid attention to the atmosphere of your video and used various instruments other than just a black and white filter with some dark-vibe song. Regarding an upper skill, there’re controversial clips. In most of the clips, there were moves with imperfect execution of shaky control. I’d recommend trying to record again with better control and style because it benefits not only from an “aesthetical” point of view but also from purely technical. It shows that you can properly control the ball at this level of difficulty. Also, i liked the combos with the exact structure. Combos without any predetermined structure looked a bit messy for me – such skill needs more practice and experience. Keep it up!

danoboss_fs

It’s great to see upper beginners in the competition! The competition had a reputation of “elite” upper competition while it’s still a great opportunity for every freestyler to test their upper skill and get some basis for analysis. I appreciate your effort. I gotta say it was pleasing to see quality uppers from the very beginning. Most beginners try to land harder move while having problems with even basic tricks. This is not your case and that’s the right way for development. Keep paying attention to execution – that will help you a lot. I also like the variety of your basics. The only thing I’d recommend you to work on is your hands’ position. When you put your arms on your hip it just vanishes any trace of style. Hands can define your upper style. In the beginning, we don’t know where to put them. But later when you’ll be working on style and silhouette stylish hands position will help you feel much more comfortable and free while doing uppers. It can help you increase the amplitude of uppers or smoothen your style. So don’t cut this opportunity.

Diego Granados

Nice skill and ragged style. I respect your level – you have a roller control, also some chest and shoulder move on point. I was impressed with 2 lip atms – i like this kind of decision in qualification videos when you spend the shortest possible time to show a maximum of your skill. But some moves looked way too untidy. It’s annoying when the shoulder’s help is needed to balance the ball on sideheadstall – that happened way too many times in your combos. Also some of the shoulder bounces went waaaaay to high. And even though you managed to catch the ball, that killed off the whole upper flow. I prefer careful execution of each move. If something goes the unstylish way I’d recommend record again. If you avoid these “unstylish moments” your uppers will shine brighter.

dk_fs91

Hidden power and potential. I must say i’d focus on control tricks – looks like tophead and nape stall are relatively easy for you so you can build your flow on this kind of tricks. When it comes to dynamical combos there are 2 issues: unclean execution (especially when it comes to shoulder bounces) and aesthetically unpleasant hands position. If i just ignore hands your uppers look pretty good. Just pay attention to how your hands move and try to figure out how to keep hands helping you to balance the ball and look good at the same time. In your case it might be complex task as your body and hands look massive, but if you solve it that will look so special and unique. Please don’t put hands on hip as many people do, just keep working on their position. That will also help you feel more freedom in body movement which sometimes complicates upper control.

Gera

Experienced upper warrior here.It’s always about difficult moves, especially with backhead stall, fuad-type of moves and 4em-bounces. I like that you always try to work with structured combos (before hardcore warrior gets the ride haha). So as always i have two things to suggest: 1) do pauses sometimes. That will help recognise your initial ideas and logics. When you do non-stop hardcore stuff that all becomes a mess sometimes. 2) be careful with fuad(or atm to cheek/lip)-4em np connections. When you do one atm to cheek-4em connection (last combo) it looks great. When you try to do 4-5 in a row it looks illegible cuz your execution of these two parts look similar.

Cess / Guatemala

Hardcore itself. Insane control and skill. The only thing i wish is to see more “predetermined” combos. Now it looks like you don’t have any structure in mind while recording clips. Looks more like you start to record and try to show everything you’ve got. We know you’ve got sick skill and variety too. Not it’s time to pack these skills into recognizable combos and patterns.

Hermen

You’ve become one of my favorite new generation upper skillers. I like how clean your moves and also how clean your ideas behind the clips are. Also, it’s impressive that you can do almost everything in both sides – that gives you a huge potential. The next step is to less “repetitive” combos while keeping the structure obvious and recognizable. Looking forward to seeing more of your smart upperz.

Hrabi –

More order! I liked the ideas behind your clip with cheeks (0:36) – this is right way. And also next clip. For the rest – i cannot doubt your upper skill, but sometimes it looks more like chaotic upper flow than like mindful uppers haha. For live competition that might work, but if you’ll keep losing focus in your combos that will make further improvement harder. My deep belief is that structure, clean ideas and understanding of your individuality helps you choose shorter way to reach higher level. Not your uppers are like piece of marble. Time to cut off unnecessary stuff and creare a sculpture.

Jachuj69

The funniest thing to watch. First of all, i loved the irony behind the video. The content of the video was also good. I gotta say there were guys with stronger skills who didn’t show their full potential. You made a smart move – prepared structured combos is always a good decision. Execution was pretty good except for some shoulder bounces and rollers. I believe you have a chance to impress us next time.

Kalina

Solid control, but chaotic and repetitive combos. I believe you showed your potential in such long dynamic combos in the first clip. So i expected shorter, but harder clips coming, but then a pretty similar upper sequence was performed. Based on rollers + shoulder bounces+chest rolls, you can deliver interesting and powerful ideas if you pack them in dense and smart combos. For inspiration check “Turlakov Alexander…” video from 2012 – i guess you can work with some of his variations to add some sauce to your upper skill.

Luis

Difficult combos, but lack of structure. You obviously have solid backhead stall and  chest control. But you represent it mostly by repetitive flow. The video lacks variety and imagination.  I really loved your chest moves with hands revolution – that looked fresh and promising, it shows your chest control from the new side. Always remember – you shouldn’t do same trick in same variation twice. If you wanna show orbits – there’re more than 15 variations of how you can do that. You have everything to step up your game. Time to expand your upper mind.

majeritos

Solid, but repetitive basics. Same sequences repeat again and again. I noticed you have good roller control and also can mix with other upper basics like shoulder bounced or even true shoulder stall… Much work to do! You have good fundament of your uppers, but the rest is yet to be built.

Maxy

Good basic skill. Most of stuff you did was clean and dynamic. Though pay attention to orbits – sometimes you touch the ball with your hand. Also these cheek stalls that you incorporate should have bigger amplitude – instead it looks weird to me. Just keep on exploring the variations you love and look up to those who mastered them – you can get some inspiration in how they mix these tricks together.

Rus-L

Были, наверное, ребята ,которые сделали пожестче, но получили более низкий бал. Твое преимущество в том, чтобы уметь плотно упаковать свой скилл. Здесь всё по делу – разнообразие столлов, подбивы, орбитность показана, стиль и динамика. В турнире будет соблазн пытаться “пережестить” соперников – не стоит поддаваться. Просто делай красивые и умные комбосы и всё будет хорошо. И не болей, старый))

Tarasov

Все на месте. Разнообразие, умные связки и всё такое. Понравилась коротулька с топом – больше таких штук в разных подстилях апперов дают ощутимую прибавку к прогрессу. Если поднять скилл и не отступать от своего понимания апперов в пользу хардкора – есть шанс пошуметь на этом турнире.

Trisman

Суетишься. Скилл есть. В голове тоже где-то есть правильные решения – в комбо они проскакивают. Но часто скорость апперов обгоняет скорость мысли и начинается хаотичная раздача. Это круто ,когда у тебя есть разнообразие заготовок и скиллов. Но ты к нему пока что идешь. Ориентируйся на Тарасовых – либо старайся упаковывать свой скилл в короткие комбо, где очевидна задумка, очевидно начало и очевиден конец, либо старайся делать “продуманные длинные”, как у Димы. По сути это один и тот же подход, только один работает в коротких и понятных комбо, а второй – чуть менее осязаемая штука, в которой можно запутаться, а можно найти свой стиль. Не надо пытаться раздать по максимуму – здесь таких ребят полно. Делай осмысленно, чисто и разнообразно – это сегодня на вес золота.

Valera

Очень круто ,что раздача у тебя сочетается с логичными задумками, где проявляется твое апперское мышление. Баланс между заготовочками и раздачей – ключ к успеху в этом турнире. Много жесткого и много интересного. Странные окончания комбарей немного смутили.

Иван Суриков

Хорошая база, но мало понимания того, как ее использовать. Хорошие роллы, хорошие затылки, грудак-контроль есть, хороший контроль в целом. Есть огрехи в подбивах – в 4ем подбивах все-таки мяч должен проходить за головой, а не над ней сзади. Пока что это выглядит как неплохой материал, из которого предстоит сделать оформленные апперы. Нет определяющей идеи в апперах , кроме выполнения на количество. Думаю, что уже можно совмещать то, что ты умеешь. Посмотри видосы сильных апперщиков разных лет для вдохновения, залетай в ЛАВ – надо как-то двигаться дальше с этим материалом. С этим точно надо работать дальше.
