With both competitors impacted by the virus and unable to travel, Samsung stepped up to ensure they’d still be able to compete as they worked to ‘patch-in’ both artists across both Digital and Classic leagues.
Appearing on both the Venue’s big screen and our Twitch feed simultaneously Samsung’s technical team ensured they seamlessly matched-up alongside their opponents and competed to the same high-standards our Live competitors adhered to while at the live arena.
Such a last minute modification to our scheduling and tournament planning also meant a rethink. With two artists now competing remotely across two separate disciplines we had to think on our feet to ensure fairness and a level playing field.
Some competitors thrive in a live tournament setting while others benefit from home advantage - knowing how talented both Alex and Lawrence are the judges conferred and agreed to mark both their scorecards down across: Personality, Interpretation, Narrative & Technical by 10% consistently throughout each round.
The social vote result would remain intact.
