Looking at the running order for this, what a long way to go for a competition for there to be 1 in nearly every division. Such a shame!

Shut up. Nobody has just travelled to Barcelona for just a competition. It’s such a fun bonding experience. So if you are in Barcelona right now complaining about how many teams there is then I suggest you stop being a boring salad and go have fun.

@post4, clearly your blind because the competition is actually pretty decent for being an abroad comp that not every team can afford. Not everything is about competition you dick. Said it before and I’ll say it again, stop being a boring fucking salad.

The summit bids will be interesting. Do fc have to give out their bids? They don’t have many teams to choose from. Doesn’t seem it’s going to be a tough choice when the international divisions are so small and we could end up with teams going to the summit that are pretty mediocre.

If Glasgow is anything to go by they’ll give out there bids. All 3/4 teams that entered international divisions there got bids.
6 teams eligible from what I can see, scores in order:
Brave (IS1) 97.32%
Surrey Starlets (IJ2) 96.92%
Black ice (IJ1) 95.56%
Brave (IJ1) 95.41%
Infinity (IJ2) 93.07%
OCT (IC4) 80.94%
Wonder how many bids they’ve got to give out?

Hopefully they’ll reinstate the rule where you can’t travel to get a bid and make it for the Summit too as it’s a joke that you can choose competitions like this for an easy bid. The dance teams especially wouldn’t get a look-in if they tried for Summit bids at Jamfest Europe or FC Bournemouth

None of the teams that have just got a bid would have got a bid at jamfest or FC nationals. Bid seeking is so easy now.
Pretty much everyone in the international divisions was getting a bid at Barcelona.

Shame on on coaches of teams who go to these comps (spending lots of
Money getting there to compete either against themselves or
One or two others . These teams would struggle to get top 6 in uk comps , receive a bid to summits and then it’s more money and pressure on parents to travel !’ Surely these coaches and teams supporters know this is wrong ?? There should be set scores that these teams need to achieve to attend in worlds comp !!

@post22 by the looks of it it’s the highest four scores out of the bid eligible dance teams who got bids.

@post24 curious what score you think they should have to achieve for a summit bid? They all scored above 87 so it’s not like the scores were low.

Fc didn’t announce bids at this comp till late in the season when it would have been too late for most teams to plan to go. Hopefully next year the summit rounds at both fc Glasgow and Barcelona will be more competitive.

The bid giving process is too easy now , been spectating at a few comps this year and watch the international division's there routines have been shocking and still got bids . Then parents will be made to pay hundreds to go over the pond to watch there teams compete and get hammered . All for the social media posts "we've competed at worlds and summit etc" but your routines are shocking

From the looks of the scores all of the teams who got bids at FC Barcelona did well and should be proud of their achievements. Brave Allstars may only be in their first competing season but from pretty much the day they opened they've shown they are a team to keep an eye on. And then Hartlepool Hawks may have come 3rd in junior pom but that division outscored everything else - don't forget Summit is all ages except Senior for dance so they beat a fair few teams to get that bid.

Yes it would be nice for bid giving comps (summit, worlds or otherwise) to be huge and there be a large number of teams competing for each bid but no atrociously low scores got bids by default this weekend.

Not being funny but as a coach I wouldn’t even want to take a team to summit if we had to go to smaller comps to get a bid due to not being able to get them at bigger ones. Waste of money and setting your kids up to fail really but if that’s what they want to do then suppose that’s their decision.

Still don’t understand why FC just chuck their bids to anyone. Like I know they want to just get their name out there but come on?

Brave are a good team, their senior team deserved it, but their Junior team did not. A second place and last place shouldn't be getting bids. It's far too easy.

But their senior team were the only ones in their division? They still got the highest score of the entire competition and the juniors weren’t that far behind score wise. Do we know how fc gave these bids was it by scores?

92.22.25.251 | Tue 11th Jun 2019 - 22:09
 
It would be ridiculous if it went by first place across the divisions. It needs to go by highest scores across all eligible divisions to ensure it was fair. Otherwise you could end up with someone coming first in a division where they competed against no one with a score in the 70s winning a bid and teams than came 2nd/3rd in a more competitive division scoring in the high 80s or low 90s going without.

Going by score is literally the only way to ensure the top teams get the bids. They can only give bids to teams that compete, so it’s all very well saying that these teams might not have got a bid at another comp but those other teams didn’t go to this comp. Can only compete against who is there on the day.

It should be by score but also quality controlled

If no teams are good enough then no bids are given, simple


EP’s see Summit bids as a money-maker now. Barcelona wouldn’t have been half as busy without them so they know if people think it’s an easy bid it’s going to make them more money in entry fees.

There only about 5 international teams so it's not like Barcelona would have been quiet if they weren't handing out bids and those 5 or so didn't attend! But it is silly that Brave All-stars could just enter the same kids into two divisions to get two bids just because there was no one else there!

Brave only put those teams together because they knew it was an easy way to get a bid, and then act all shocked on social media when they were announced. There needs to be some changes to the way bids are handed out as these average teams are getting bids just because they can afford to fly out to these small competitions to get them.

The fairest way to do Summit bids or any bids is to go off score. It's really common at competitions to have some divisions be a really high standard and others be much weaker. First place doesn't automatically equal being great overall. Sometimes 2nd place can be the second highest score of the competition and sometimes a 1st place can be one of the lowest.

I agree that EP's should only award bids that are deserved and not necessarily give out the max number of bids they are allowed to if that means giving to teams who didn't perform well but all the teams receiving bids from Barcelona seem to have scored really well and probably are deserving of what they got. Hopefully we'll have some great representation at Summit next year.

@Post104, at worlds there are 12 areas you are scored in ellipse outscored ammo in 6 of those areas and ammo outscored ellipse. I don’t think people understand the worlds scoresheet is different to what is used at comps over here. Also saying ruby are at ammo standards, they were outscored by 2 other English teams at worlds.

@post102 actually bid winners generally go to teams that are going to represent the ep best. It’s not based on scores, as JAMfest states the bids will go to the 2 most deserving teams & as the posts above have stated the reasons that the all girl teams scored higher is because it’s easier to max out on All girl than co-Ed! Anyone with eyes that watched these teams this w.end would know the difference between a team that plays it safe & a team like Ammo that puts out a show which has the difficulty & American standard cheer routines that surely we all aspire to achieve! It’s not poor sportsmanship to be gutted for a team that puts out the performances like they do & not get the recognition for it! ! # JusticeforAmmo
