Decision of the judges on 1/2 finals:
CÉSS4 vs. Tris
I would select CÉSS4 here. Yes your combinations are difficult but could be made more interesting. I noticed a lot of small movements and another thing, adding small pauses in the long combos could be advantageous. Tris have generally good uppers, but the opponent performed better on multiple aspects, specially the difficulty. For your rolls clip, it would look better to show both sides control and also be careful for your second revolution in latm.
Tarasov vs. RuS-L
The true shoulder stall battle. Both videos were nice to watch, and I choose Tarasov as the winner here mainly because of doing more advanced combos with slightly more variety.

Decision of the judges on 1/4 finals:
Tarasov vs Carlos Alexis Navarro
Tarasov won. Basically same style of combos, but Tarasov made harder and more original variations and delivered a smoother execution.
Carlos – your video looked close to your maximum level. Good job. However, that affected your style in a bad way. Most movements looked bendy or shaky. Pay more attention to smoothness rather than speed. Shaky moves prevent you from stepping to the next level
Tarasov – видео кайф, много приколюх для этой стадии. Местами смущали фейсроллы в сложных переходах – были немного дубовые. Хотя местами были крутые мягкие и скользящие фейсроллы. Для более сложных баттлов это будет критично.
Degenq vs Tris
Сложный баттл. Трис претендует на более высокую сложность и разнообразие, но как будто весь видос из недоделанных комбарей. Оппонент пошёл по аккуратной стороне, с понятным фокусом на классике, но без изысков. Голосую за degenq – как по мне, такой подход более конкурентноспособен в следующей стадии. У Триса в большинстве моментов добавления сложности типа столлов не увидел контроля – либо это было проходящее движение, либо кадр обрезан. Без этого видос выглядит незаконченным, вложено недостаточно сил – комбо надо доделывать. Degenq не хватило разнообразия и оригинальности, но все задуманное сделано более менее качественно, а сильные стороны показаны лучше.
Tarasov (winner) vs. Carlos Alexis Navarro
I noticed clear improvement in your uppers, Carlos. That is one of the most important reasons to
participate in this tournament. The execution got better, and the combinations seems more
advanced than before. However, Tarasov had an overall higher level in this battle, particularly
with difficulty, execution, and control (a lot of movements were seen with Carlos).
degenq vs. tris (winner)
Both videos were generally good, but degenq could have shown more. Tris performed better in
developing more complex combinations, but you need to show more control with the stalls
done in the video, as you had cut those clips quickly.
Carlos Alexis Navarro
Decision of the judges on qualification round:
6. Carlos Alexis Navarro
Lack of individuality is the biggest issue.
Another one is focus on difficulty. If you prefer repeating someone else’s patterns in combos – well, then put more effort into the style. The same set of moves performed slowly and bendy isn’t the same thing like the one executed with fast or smooth style. That’s why i put degenq higher than Luis and Carlos Alexis Navarro, despite the content of the videos was pretty similar.
7. Carlos Alexis Navarro
Basic combos. Pavel roll is slightly unclean, as the ball goes too back on the nape area. Keep developing your uppers and train both sides. Good luck.
You have good nape and chest control. However, the combos are quite repetitive. You need to show variety and develop the right upper mentality.
- Carlos Alexis Navarro
Better showing of varied uppers. Improper execution in many clips, as the ball goes way too high above the head. Better control can be shown with low amplitude, and the head revolutions can be appreciated when the ball is low.
I would say a good long combo. You were able to regain a structure for the combo after the pauses, which is good. Some bounces were too high, so be careful about that.
Good approach for your uppers.
Work on developing harder tricks and combinations.
Cleanest work, although not the higher difficulty and complexity. I liked the last two combos.
Tidy uppers. Good control with both sides as well. Some combos started to feel repetitive a bit, but in their concept I mean. For instance, I started to predict their ending and so on.
Higher level when it comes to difficulty, complexity, and variety. I could see some interesting, planned combos, but still the randomness feeling is there, along with many movements, and shakiness.
