    has anyone else noticed that level 1-4 stunts tend to be more creative than level 5 stunts? For example, levels 1-4 have more creative entries and dismounts from stunts where you mostly only see level 5 teams doing tic tocs, full ups and double downs. Is there any reason for this?

    I kind of agree with you...the lower levels are spicing things up with creativity but the level 5 teams seem to have full ups and kick doubles! I am pretty sick of kick doubles. Someone needs to think of another toss! I LOVE toe touch doubles when executed beautifully. BUT don't get me wrong, the level 5 teams are phenomenal and have awesome talent!

    Out here on the east coast i swear creativity is frowned upon. You try to do one thing different and you get warning and 30 minute conversations with safety judges about legality of what you just did. Unless your name is World Cup, Twisters, Vipers better to just pull what scores highest.

    I respectfully disagree. I've never had anyone question any of my teams stunts or pyramids (unless there's a legality question, though that's rare), and I've never been a part of those organization.
