SCALES - SCALES International - September 11th, 12th, & 13th 2020
For the past few years, Scales has been running online competitions for players around the world to participate in. The primary goal of Scales Open was to provide for some opportunity for players to gain greater competitive experience in a system that prioritizes true yo-yoing. Scales makes use of a fine-tuned judging system that involves interesting evaluation categories and bonuses.
Scales International is the next step up from Scales Open. Similarly to past contests, Scales Intl. will be offering 1A Pro and 1A Amateur divisions. The pro division will consist of a 1 minute prelim round and 3 minute final routines with an adjusted judging system, and the amateur division will consist of a 1 minute routine with a similar judging format to that of Scales Open Vol. 4.
