Online Group Stage - 09.05.22 – 15.05.22

ℹ️ About the Online Group Stage:

The Online Group Stage will be a 16 Group, Video on Demand, AB-BA, 1on1 Battle.
In all 16 groups, there will be a Beatboxer drawn from each tier and put into the group. This means every group will contain a Beatboxer from Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4. by doing this, we will have equally strong and fair groups.

Tier 1: 1st -16th, Tier 2: 17th – 32nd, Tier 3: 33rd – 48th and Tier 4: 49th – 64th.

All participants will battle every other participant in their group once, in an AB-BA Battle.
At the start of the battle, a coin flip will decide which Beatboxer will be A and which one will be B.
Beatboxer A announces which one of their 9 Videos shall be played. After that, Beatboxer B will announce which one of their 9 Videos shall be played.

At the end of the Online Group Stage, the top 2 from each group will face one final Battle. Every first placed participant will face one second-placed participant from another group.

The winners of this Battle are the final Top 16 Beatboxers who will be invited to the European Beatbox Championship Live Event in Graz/Austria.

After each round, the judges will make a decision and announce which Beatboxer received their points. In the second round, Beatboxer B is starting and Beatboxer A can answer this time.

The points received from both rounds determine the winner of this Battle.

The judges can award 1 point to their chosen winner for each round so 5 votes are up for grabs in each round and 10 overall for the battle.

Example: In round 1 Judges 1 – 3  vote Beatboxer A as winner and Judges 4 & 5 vote Beatboxer B as winner so therefore Beatboxer A takes 3 points and Beatboxer B takes 2 from round 1.

In round 2 Judge 1  votes Beatboxer A as winner and Judges 2 – 5 vote Beatboxer B as winner so therefore Beatboxer A takes 1 points and Beatboxer B takes 4 from round 2. 

Overall Beatboxer A takes 4 points and Beatboxer B takes 6 points for that battle which are added to their overall group stage score.

Every single point received from the judges during the group stage will be added together to your final score in the group stage.
