    Default King of the Cafe 2011 Discussion Thread

    Alright guys, the last couple years KOTC has kinda been falling flat on it's face. I pm'd Pathtek with some new idea's for KOTC and if there is enough interest for doing KOTC again, I have the free time to run it as explained in this thread (we can make some changes, I'm open to ideas). These are some of my ideas as far as keeping KOTC challenging and new.

    Teams: 4 teams consisting of 4 people each. (Sorry guys only 16 people this time around due to lack of participation in recent KOTC tries)

    You can replace a member if they become incapacitated (injury, death, sickness, just being a douchebag and changing their mind)

    Judging:
    Three Judges counting points for every video. (I'm one (my idea, no takesies backsies). Two others. One mod and one other objective member)

    Challenge List:
    New challenge list every week. One month timeframe to do as many of the challenge tasks as possible.

    Points:
    Base points for completing as many items from the four challenge lists within the month. (this allows everyone a month time frame to do the challenges, extra points for doing the challenge list the week it comes out)

    Bonus Points for completing as many of the challenges as you can in the week that listing comes out. (each team member must do 2 challenges in that video or you will get ZERO mothafuzzin points)

    Timelength:
    One week for Bonus points. One month for entire competition(allows time for our overseas schralpers)

    Rules for submitting videos:

    Once your team has completed as many of the weekly challenges as possible you will upload your video to youtube or vimeo with the subject line:

    Kotc 2011 Week 1 Bonus (team name)
    Kotc 2011 Week 2 Bonus (team name)
    Kotc 2011 Week 3 Bonus (team name)
    Kotc 2011 Week 4 Bonus (team name)

    You are not allowed to use your bonus videos in your final compilation for points as they will have already been scored for points.


    If there is enough interest, I will finish up the first challenge list and have it ready for June.

    If there isn't enough interest. The cafe is dead and you should all take up rollerblading like the fruit booting freaks you really are. (jk, kinda)

    So who is in ?

    TEAM 1 (awaiting a name)
    GNAR
    eleventytwo
    RockenPunk
    mirko

    Team 2 ( possibly The Lemon smashers or super nintendo chalmers)

    Supersonix 6
    DeadBlueSky
    Hardcore1200
    NathanGrayston

    Team 3 (insert name here)
    arod
    MikeM
    Trebor
    BFL

    Team 4
    Dylan
    erkbrown
    Franklin
    Stu

    I loved the KOTC. J-Ros and I's team did pretty well if I recall. I loved watching all those videos!

    I'm super down if we get the necessary 16.

    I think it might be more effective if we were allowed to film for KOTR with people outside of the cafe. I mean, people kinda already know who's good and all so a team with like, say RobbySkateboard and MRCK will be dominant (just an opinion).

    Also, if we film locally with some friends then communication will be better and nobody can really bail from a team because a replacement can easily be found. I also think that there should be an entrance fee (reference to skateperception) so that the team will be more unlikely to bail. If it's money coming from your pockets, then chances are more likely that you'll actually do it.

    also, part of the point is that the teams incorporate people who contribute to the site, just filming a bunch of your friends for it takes the relatability away.

    Yeah, I get what you're saying, but I just don't think this will be successful in the future.
    I mean, we had lots of hype last time the cafe had a KOTR but nothing good came out of it.
    It doesn't really look like it'll be any different this year. The Cafe seems kinda dead..
    I remember when there would be like 3 different games of skate going on at once, but now there's barely one that's active.

    oh it will catch on, if I have to threaten people with unsubstantiated rapture rumors, I will!

    Does that mean you are looking for teammates right now? Find 3 others off the Cafe and BOOM you have a team already.



    For those of you that think that the tech guys will be uber dominant...the point of KOTC is to get everyone on your team involved...if you submit me a video where one member does everything and everyone else only does a handful of tricks, your team will be penalized.

    your posting in here, you are generating interest. Perhaps you want to start a team?

    In case anyone is curious to how this works, I'll post my previous team's submission vid. Wish we woulda put a tad more effort into it. But that's just my opinion.

    yep. The added twist to 2011 is the weekly bonus points and the 4 count them 4 challenge lists. (that Im still working on, so dont count them yet.) A different one each week.

    I was thinking about this the other day, I literally have nothing to do all summer (besides work), if I could get my hands on a camera I'd so be down. Is my sig still from the last KOTC?
    EDIT: Yes, yes it is.

    I remember the King of the Cafe things years back when I used to just creep on the site. I'm not an amazing skater, and since I haven't been skating much due to rain and mostly longboarding now I've lost a few steps, but I'm interested.

    i'm on it like wallace and gromit...

    i'd like to play too, it wouldn't be too much trouble to muck around with my girlfriends stills camera to do video that is still of usable quality.
