IOC is a free online orbit competition, in which competitors submit videos to be judged in head to head battles. Competitors are matched against other orbiters of equivalent skill level and the winner of each match will advance in their skill bracket until only one winner remains. Last Season we had over 100 competitors in 4 skill brackets. Competitors have the chance to win exclusive orbit gear from all your favorite orbit companies!
After sign ups close, we will assess the skill level of all competitors and place them in the bracket that best matches their skill level. Your choice of skill bracket will be considered, but the final decision is up to our panel of judges. This task is not easy so please respect their decisions in trying to create the most even playing field for all.
Once in a skill bracket you will receive your first round opponent. Competitors will have one week to film a 2 minute 30 second video to music of their choosing. WE highly recommend using copyright free music for your videos to ensure they can be shared. Copyright Free Music Library Coming Soon! You do not need to edit your video, we will do that for you before uploading it! We do recommend overlaying your audio for better quality listening!
****Videos must be submitted to the google form for each round.****
Each video will be evaluated by our panel of judges and given a score in Presentation, Execution and Style. The scores will be compared against your opponent, and the one with the higher score will advance to the next round of the the competition. This will continue until only one champion is left remaining in each skill level.
There will be a point deduction/DQ for time violations on videos.
0-5 seconds over: 1 point deduct
6-10 seconds over: 2 point deduct
11-15 seconds over: 3 point deduct
16 seconds and up: DQ
In between rounds we will be playing random little mini games to keep it interesting! All are welcome to hitchhike even if you aren’t competing. Join in on the fun! Even if you are knocked out of the competition you can still continue to hitchhike along with us!
