Yesterday, Floor Wars Russia ended with a heated final battle, where PREDATORZ won against COMIX ZONE. Yes people, PREDATORZ, the winners of countless international battles, and one of the best crews on the scene today are finally coming to Floor Wars! The picture below shows the crew and two of the judges, Yan and Milky Rock.
The event once again went down in the city of Voronezh in a basketball court, which proved to be the perfect spot. 40 crews from all over the country had signed up, and the level was once again very high. There was also a 1vs1 Rookie Battle, where close to 100 dancers took part and proved that Russia has talent! Special thanks to Gimnast, who did yet another great job organizing Floor Wars Russia – this time being the 5th in a row.
This weekend the Germany qualifications took place once again in Hannover. 40 crews had signed up on the german-only qualifier, spread from all over the country. Many of the big local names were out to fight for the win in the wonderful environment of “Luther kirche” centrally placed in Hannover. Yes, the battles took place in a church! With these surrounding, there wasn’t much to go wrong, battling on holy ground. The judges were respectfully seated in front of the altar on red leather sofas, giving them the perfect view over the scenery.
The fight for a top-16 spot was tense from the first round on, which led to a tough selection between the crews. At this point audience support was it peak with locals coming in to check out the event taking place in their city. The host did a great job in firing em up and the following rounds gave some great battles and good energy to the event. Probably peaking at the semi-finals, were some strong contenders met in the likes of Osnabrooklyn, Masterplan Crew, The Saxons (two times BotY-winners) and Flowjob.
In the final round, we’ve got presented Masterplan Crew with a combination of style, flexibility and power against Flowjob, who similarly met up with power and energy thru out all the evening and the surprising again and again with their moves not to mention on beat! This might have contributed to a win, as a unique voice presented by the judges Mounir (Vagabonds, France), Crock (ex-Flying Steps, Berlin) and Edu (Lunaticks, Barcelona): Flowjob Crew!
We are looking forward to have them representing Germany in the great-8 at the Floor Wars finals in Copenhagen on the 12th of march 2016!
