DETAILS
The World XCM On-line Tournament is open to any XCMer or manipulator wanting to compete. There are no age or other requirements. All you need is a video camera/webcam of some sort, and be able to upload your video. Many competitors use the free - www.youtube.com video hosting site that is easy to use.

WHEN DOES IT START?
The World XCM On-line tournament will start on 15 May. The tournament requires that you make a video approximately once every 2-3 weeks only. You have that time to make your routine and upload.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The World XCM Tournament uses a double elimination battle system. In other words, people are paired up by random drawing and they battle to decide on the winner. Each competitor submits there video and our pannel of expert judges grades them all individually by a point system, and declares the winner. The winner advances in the winner's bracket and the looser drops down to a loser's bracket. You have to lose 2 battles/rounds to be out of the tournament completely.
Here are the brackets for Round Three - Perching

OUCH! - The winners bracket always gets tougher as rounds continue. Some really tough battles in this round and because perching hasn't been mastered by most artists, it's fair to say it's almost anyone's round. So give it your best shot! Best of luck to everyone!

We all knew that Perching would be a make it or break it round for many people since Perching has not been mastered by many. There may be some upsets this round, and there certainly were some surprises. There are a very few that understand Perching and I'm very happy to see their videos and progression from previous years! Perching is NOT jamming cards into the pack to make big displays... it's a journey of movement and flow with some displays along the journey. Check out Digital Artist's video NOW! Watch it, study it! This is what Perching is. Loom's video was also great, as well as a big surprise from Baby Cat who trained her butt off for this round and it shows! Her routine was very very SWEET with the first display which I thought was AWESOME! You can tell the people that actually trained for this tournament and those that threw something together last second. There are other nice vids such as Jrunsten as always and a few others. Be sure to check them all out. I enjoyed most of the videos, dark ninja had a cool intro, as well as D.A.,and their were some funny things around other videos. I LOVED the SH pendants everyone! Sweet shit! So here are the videos....
