The YYE Holiday Throwdown / Poetry Slam

Hey guys! Here’s the official thread for the new Swiss-style tournament that im organizing for the holdays. Feel free to discuss the rules, strategies, or even any predictions you guys have.

I’m also going to post any rule changes and updates in this thread. As of now, I’m going to keep the registration open until Christmas Day. After that, I’m going to PM everyone on this list to verify their participation. After that, all your names go into a random generator where the matchups will be determined.

Bracket- (Shoutout to Andy569 for making the bracket)

I can see this going in many directions depending on who is paired with who in the first round

EDIT-
PS. Who’s on your list of people to face?


#8

My routine for the first round is going to depend on who I’m facing…


#9

I want to battle Abby and Kclegume… NAME FAIL<


#10

kclejeune, OHHHHH DIDNT EVEN LOOK IT UP!


#11

Maybe Maddog or Zorro. Know those guys through the forums, haven’t seen them yoyo at all! I’d like to see what they’ve got :wink:


#12

Maddog’s made videos… but Zorro is all talk :wink:


#13

My list-
Baerinatux
redneckyoyoer382
Bcmaddog
Abby1371
Andy569
nardcopter
kclejeune


#14

I’d like a rematch with andy569 after that Under 1 Year Battle.

baerinatux would be neat to face but I’d probably lose, same goes for kclejeune.

redneckyoyoer382 may or may not be a close battle

LeftyLink or GoCrazyForYoyo would be cool matchups too


#15

Excited for this! Hope I do decently well, as opposed to the last battle I did. :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

You would sweep the floor with me… again… LOL i havent improved that much…


#17

You would beatmost of the people on that list. Including me haha


#18

Maybe, but the 3 people im worry about facing are Baerinatux, nardcopter, and kclejeune


#19

Ahem.

I plan on dominating this battle. Then go on to YoYoExpert. Then I will take over the world.

jk.

I’ve never done one of these. Pretty excited! Wow I’ve never seen anyone use this feature haha. You guys should totally check it out. Anyway, I’m nothing to worry about.
