    Best Reprise Closer?

    Crown 2010 was enjoyable.

    DCI World Champs Finals - Aug 11, 2018

    Loved: BD, Bluecoats, Crusaders, Cadets Liked: SCV, Cavaliers, Mandarins, Crossmen Disliked: Crown, Blue Knights, Phantom I was super surprised by Cadets and Crossmen. Went into both shows with lower expectations and was blown away! I was shocked by how much Blue Knights let me down. They’ve been one of my favorite groups for the last 6 years or so. I just wasn’t really feeling it. I wasn’t a die-hard fan for any show this year, but I felt like it was the most talented year I’ve seen yet.

    What an incredible way to start off finals, Crossmen! I love how much the show has developed over the last month! Good luck, Phantom. I’m rooting for you, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Crossmen rise to 11th tonight.

    Blue Devils 2018

    I’m not sure, but last year they warmed up at IUPUI’s stadium and it was open to the public.

    Carolina Crown 2018

    I’ve been a critic of Crown this whole season and am one who predicted a 6th place. While I stand by my opinions, I can officially eat my words, as I was VERY wrong. I suppose you can never discount the performance level of Crown! Shout out to “It Is” for being one of the more under appreciated shows in the last 10 years. I wasn’t in love with every moment, but that show is due for more credit than it is deserving. It certainly was more competitive than this year’s production (to date).

    Flo Guy FIRED for Sexist Remarks

    This issue is simply a manefestation of everybody’s political views and is being used as a soundboard for these views. Best of luck to anyone hoping to sway the opposition tonight, but that’s unlikely to happen in such a polarized and political issue.

    Carolina Crown 2018

    I think that it was appropriately ranked competitively, but I also agree that it is underrated by fans.

    I meant the judging community as a whole. Crown has certainly been competitive in music. I don’t agree with the visual components that you speak of. Compared to their competition, I think that Crown’s visual package is not competitive (at least with top 3). Being dismissive of the rest of Crown’s show... that’s a fair point. I think that I would be less critical of it if I were buying into the rest of the visual package, but I’m not. But yes, I wouldn’t necessarily say that to any corps, that’s fair.

    Sorry for upsetting you! I like being able to participate in debate, but to each their own.

    Every judge this year disagrees with you. I’m not trying to be rude, but it is that simple. They certainly do not have the hardest music book. Visual scores also don’t depend on the distance that members travel. For god’s sake, they do a FTL for half a movement, then stand and jam for the last half. Drill being demanding for the sake of being demanding, I agree with you 100%. That’s mostly going away.

    To be fair, guard scores have all been neck and neck and fluctuating all season. Judges sample different areas and each have different backgrounds and emphasize. It can be frustrating, but they’re all over the place and will likely continue to be.

    I’m not over the moon for any one show this year, but the talent on display in 2018 is the best to date, IMO.

    Love SCV. I think BD shouldn’t be far behind that, but SCV is just too good in their excecution. What an incredibly talented group! I may not want SCV to win, but they really deserve it this year.
