    ~~~~ Game of BLADE 2019 ~~~~

    Excel for clip links and standings https://1drv.ms/x/s!AqxQQ2mdfBhWd_xnLYJR1utY210




    The rules/guidelines:




    Please read the below rules & suggestions:

    Be prepared to check this thread at least once a week, especially if you set a trick within that window, as you are judging.






    Clean slate for setting tricks, but I'd discourage setting repeats intentionally.

    Each Monday, the next user sets their trick.

    Each trick set will have a two week window to post submissions by Midnight two Sundays after being set, and if it's not posted by the deadline you get a letter. With B.L.A.D.E. you're out.

    Post your submission as soon as you get clips, don't wait until the last minute!

    When you set a trick, you are the judge if any questionable submissions don't count. Inform people ASAP so they have a chance to submit a better clip! If the clip submitted by the person setting the trick sucks by general consensus, you may get a letter setting your own trick and failing to do it properly.

    Pay attention to when you're due to set! If you're late to set (by midnight Monday your week), I'll set a random trick by Tuesday midnight, your turn gets skipped, and you get a letter.

    If you call a switch trick, those setting and those matching need to prove it's switch eg post a clip doing it natural too. Complicated switchups involving a switch trick are discouraged as doing the switchup natural may involve some of the elements being switch...

    Open to "within reason" spot specific tricks eg 540 a stair set, fishbrain a quarter pipe, sweatstance to gap, grind a kink rail, grind up a rail... don't make it too specific or people will bitch and I reserve the right to veto. If you want to make a spot specific set, it's better to ask early.

    Attempt to set tricks within the recognizable canon of street skating. Cartwheel is out, for example. I was talking about setting a butt slide in a previous round, which too far outside of the norm. Better to ask early if in doubt.

    Tricks typically get harder as the game goes on.




    First set will be posted by me, Monday April 1st by midnight, due Sunday the 14th.

    Next set is smiley, set Monday April 8th, due Sunday April 21st, etc




    Post with interest to be added to the list. People late to join can try to catch up on as many tricks as they can the first time they submit a clip. Don't join late on purpose to abuse this...

            I need to find a good prail in my area, the one I always skate is pretty short for switchups...

                Go easy on us for the first set! At least let me get through one round without a letter.

                    DesignatedRolla is back torque to ttp too spicy for first set? I probably haven't done one since 2003 and was thinking about it...

                          If I land that it will be a miracle but please feel free! Would like to see you and others do it!

                              Sheet updated with Ljacobs and Grant.



                              Week 1 trick is back torque to true top pstar, which I may hate myself for setting. Clips due by April 14th



                              Next to set is smiley by April 8th

                                Good set. It's currently snowing here, so hopefully it'll warm up by later in the submission window.

                                      Hoping this counts but not mad at all if it doesn't. I hate this driveway.

                                        Nah. I shoulda said no lava, but I didn't. I fully trolled myself setting this. Having a difficult time on an angle iron curve ledge, unsurprisingly

                                          That's probably what I'll be trying it on too!

                                            I'm probably gonna try this ledge with a fence next to it soon, and if that's a fail I'll fall back on the old prail option, but I want to challenge myself to do it on a ledge.

                                            Ljacobs do you live near any street spots? It would be cool to see less of your pvc box this round, but your call

                                              I'm sure there are spots around me, but I don't really skate street anymore. I'm hoping to have an entirely new setup in the next couple of weeks. Should have a 30' qtr, bank, variety of weird homemade shit, and still the box. I'll try to freshen it up to be more than just skating the same box in the same way over and over once that is good to go.

                                                If I had that box I would probably skate it all the time too!

                                                  It is so much fun. If you're ever in Atlanta, come by for a beer and session!

                                                    I'm in the UK but if I ever happen to be in Atlanta I'll definitely take you up on that!

                                                      I landed what I would consider a barely passable torque ttp on the fence ledge yesterday. Hitting a prail now to really seal the deal. I hate topsides on square obstacles and haven't done a ttp on a ledge in nearly 20 years, and that Y2K era one probably didn't count anyway. I'm pleased.

                                                          I think this second one counts, barely?

                                                                        If you can fakie to back royale or farf looking over that shoulder you're most of the way there.

                                                                          Thats exactly how I looked at the trick. It’s more mental than anything. I suggest a quarter and do like 50 zero roys then go for it haha

Is that still in effect? Not that I expect it to happen for the sets so far, but it would be good to know going forward as the sets get crazier.
