Submissions for FC October are now closed! Now, onto the next map...

November's map will be on desert. This map is more "oldschool" which means there are less slides and combo spots featured. Maps like these are made for a greater number of smaller tricks. As always, do your best to innovate a find some areas for big combos too. The map is...

A small note: There are very few finishes on this map. Make sure you know where they are before you plan your run!

But yeah, would be even better if I didn't throw the grind towards the end

Anyway, here is a collection of my runs in case anyone is interested. Most of these were for practicing purposes though

After watching the replays I have to say i am surprised to find myself this low in the rankings, I do agree on Voyager and Nitroguy for their points, they were imo the much better replays, but it was written many time that smoothness was key and i deliver a run that is exactly that, i put all my focus on searching tricks that looked smooth, a lot of participants ranking over me had some of crash or nothing of value being added, some scoring have been surprising to me, really it unmotivated me for the desert map since I obviously didnt understand the reasoning for example Lars overscoring me a ton

and for judge two, it really does seem he copy paste nitroguys ranking and remove 1 added 1 on some scores, I really cant see how two individual can match so closely on all judgement of replays

edit:; i volunteer as a judge for november

hey.i can see where your enthusiasm comes from. the first minute of your run was pretty good and i really do like it. but you are quite missing variation in tricks, thats why the judges seem to lower your points there. landing on the roof will also loose points for example. you often done rather simple slides and / or spins.
on the other hand you are doing a great job on transfer'ing, which often resamples in a decent style value. which is exactly why you are ranked 3rd in this category.i can also see why you are loosing some points in ramps category, since you were basically staying at the ground for most of the time, not trying to go up/nor down (except for the tunnel spot in the end). therefore, compared to the others, i would suggest +5 pts. and maybe adding some points to originality, since in comparison to others, i can see some points getting lost there. +5pts.
in general feeling your run is pretty comparable to lars' run by quality. but if you throw in some flips / variation in style, i can easily see you in top 3.
(hypothetically adding ~15points to your style score would then end up in 228+15 = 243, place 4. adding penalty points, you would be by 246). reaching 250 as a newcomer would be pretty good, tho! looking forward to your next run!

generally speaking, voyager at top is pretty obvious. nitro in 2nd as well. but places 3 to 7 are pretty much on the same potential level.
i personally would see lars behind mizu, since the route he played was rather weird than planned and some execution of tricks felt wonky. from a quick look i would assume a rating of lars around 200-215; mizu 230~, dmw & blackq ~220, marius ~240. but thats just my opinion.

so if you want to criticize the judges, thats fair. but your run isnt top-notch. its decent. and i feel like a rating in 230~ would be reasonable compared to the other players. but on the other hand its a subjective system. i think, you should get motivated trying to reach that 3rd place youre capable of, instead of blaming others. (no offense!) we are here for fun. there is no such thing as money involved or some "real competition" going on. so, try to have fun.

EDIT: you runs / tricks will be featured at some points anyway.

Enjoyed your answer, I agree on most points, and I wasnt trying to bring down anyone, I agree top 3-7 is close, will now focus on the desert run, for now I suffer the same issue, good first minute and underwhelming ending, didnt had the time i would have like to practice, will try a bit more to pull off something worthy of top 3

I always give bonus points for an extremely difficult trick in the last ~30 seconds

*Lars and Marius both have close to identical second part, it costs originality points

I can see where this comes from, as there are a few things identically, but there is one big problem with this:
You basically just imply that (because Lars and me play a lot together) found these stunts together and then copied them.

And that's a mistake because it isn't correct in this case.
I myself found all the stunts completely alone and never changed my route. On the last day Lars and me played it a bit together and he had his route and never changed it either. It was just a coincidence that a few stunts were similar. I actually never spectated a whole run from him, so I didn't even know the whole route. (And the run that I sent in was actually done before I went on the server) It was actually streamed so you can even checkt it out.

So, I can see why you implied we copied sth, but it isn't correct, so I hope we can get the points back that we got deducted in originality.
