Tom, really brave to conquer 3d before 25th of march but I'm under the impression that you rush through everything without taking time to get comfortable with tricks ánd skipping some keytricks. It's ofcourse your own decision but I think it'd really be a shame if you turned into a style lacking number whore.

You can't compete if you allready have a solid shuffle.
This competition is motivation for you to start with 3d.

It has no point, many people have solid shuffles that are barely distinguishable from another.  So what would you mark them on?

To be fair guys, this is a personal competition between Tom and Niclas. He only posted it incase someone wanted to join in, and to ask for judgement. Now considering that being a judge is not too stenuous, I don't think it's too tall an order. I know it's not the world's most thought out competition, but we as spectators can see how it goes, and when we get the videos we'll probably be able to tell who's better.(Niclas)

If you guys are going to be rude about it, you don't have to bother opening up this thread. All that's happening is a friendly competition to see who can make the most progress.

My advice to you competitors, however, is to not spend every waking moment practicing 3d, as there are tons of other things to explore. When I started practicing 3d, I found that it became more fun to practice 1 and 2 because there were way more things to find out - notwithstanding the fact that I actually felt progress by going back to 1 and 2 rather than continually failing at 3. By the time I ended up figuring out 3low, I had a nice solid base with 1 and 2 tricks to go with a sketchy 3d shuffle.

Likely, you guys might find yourselves learning more about 1 and 2 as you try 3, so I won't say you shouldn't work on 3. Just remember that there's a whole lot more to diabolo than getting up to 3 - the value of 1 and 2 diabolo skills will far outweigh the ability to do 3.

That said, enjoy trying 3 diabolos! It's a long, painful, crying-yourself-to-sleep process. I'd also not try to take the March deadline too seriously... aim for later in the year.

That's the reason why I'm not going to join.
I've hardly got anywhere with 3d, but my 1d has slowly been edging towards the slack/knot style, and my 2d's been progressing steadily. You may find you get real bored of this competition and end up with a cool fan combo or something.

That is exactly right. i would join, but after 10 months of practice and not much progress i would feel too pressured. why feel pressured to practice 3d all the time when i could practice 2d or 1d, which ATM i prefer much more. (btw i am the person that will was talking about with 10 months of practice but not much progress)

And what is the purpose of having judges? surely the person with the most OTTs is the winner?
