default Shuffle Battle Rules.

Post by Garry on Tue 04 Jan 2011, 13:07

MSO is setting up a number of levels of Battle ability and competitive tasks.

What rules or sorts of rules for tasks do you think we should include?

For instance lets set a basic shuffle routine involving say running man/stomp, shuffle and spin to qualify for a mid level comp. Beginners would be open to any moves they can do.

We can set up lots of different threads for different styles, music, tempo, costume, solo, teams crews etc

So tell us what you want...

To give you an idea of Shuffle battling check out this classic battle between Bob Hope and James Cagney below from the 7 Little Foys (1955).




The battle is a test and display of skill, done in good humour and between a couple of old friends. Bob Hope credits Cagney in another clip (more info http://mso1.cultureforum.net/t971-bob-hope-and-james-cagney-classic-dance-routine ) for teaching him everything he knows,

The wise cracking one liners are intended to sting, but in a friendly way, and the challenge is to deliver a come back line without hesitation and trump the sting, as well as getting a laugh.

It's a very very fine art, and you can easily offend if you stuff up, but that's the attraction, how well do you perform under pressure, and how well do you cope with hecklers in the audience. In this case the hecklers are Hope and Cagney heckling each other.

You will note that both freely accept the challenge, you can't force someone to battle, that's not shuffling. But if two or more shufflers want to battle it out...well we're ready to accomodate your battle vids.

Wait, are you saying you're gonna have a whole section, categorized by skill, for battling? Like "Intermediate Battlers" and everyone posts their video and everyone votes whos is best? I'm a bit confused here.

So for instance we can have a section for those shuffling less than 6 months, it wouldn't be fair to go up against someone who's been shuffling for 5 years.

Plus battle stratergy, say between 3- 4 shufflers in a knock out round, or tag team/relay battles that can go on for months.

Then if you have enough shufflers in town you can have country comps state comps, have your own local battle meetups - and post the vids of course

So they're like online battles? How is the winner determined? Sounds very very cool so far.

Thanks mate, yeah that's what we need to work out, how do you vote or who votes etc.

We can put polls on simple battles and well...somehow include youtube vids. It might take a bit of trial and error to come up with something that works.

Sounds absolutely awesome. I've been waiting for something like this. Sadly nobody nearby (except the people I'm teaching) shuffle so I can't have any type of challenge like this. When do you think this whole idea will be put into action?

Pretty much straight away, we can post a couple of battles and workout the bugs as we go, and just take it from there.

If we get enough interest with shufflers wanting to battle we can establish a formal online competition, maybe once a month or something like that.

You can start the thread if you want. I'll start a formal thread for anyone to register their interest to battle.

But give the thread a go and test the poll etc

Here's the BATTLE READY register, where you post your introduction vid - can be talk as well as examples of your style.

Then anyone who wants to challenge you to battle can PM you and you can work out your battle details.

Then post a new Battle thread.

We'll try this system for a bit and see if it works

I haven't seen the post on your site, Braiser, but I've been to your site before and quite honestly all I see is serious narcissism everywhere. You claim that your forum doesn't promote competition and your forum's intentions are to "keep shuffling as a way to express," yet all I see is people putting each other down and things along those lines. I don't suppose this is my flame war to participate in, but I'm telling you the truth that even you cannot see. I don't know much about what happened with Garry's past but all I know is that within the year I've been shuffling myself, I've found this forum to be quite a nice sanctuary to learn in, regardless of its lack of members. I'd rather sit around and contribute to a real community than browse your sickening forum. Thats my two cents.

EDIT: And I'll have you know, Garry is a damn good person. Hes worked much harder than your forum has in regards to trying to teach Melbourne shuffling as what it really is; a lifestyle.

Hey everyone please calm down we don't need any unnecessary comments from either side the way i see it we all have different beliefs and if you hate someone for their beliefs then you are no better than Hitler. Now im not saying Garry, DarkRavin, or Braiser is right but plz just enjoy the love of the dance that's all i ask.
