The meet videos of the VAF Warriors have now been uploaded, and they are leading into the first previews of the upcoming FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014.
The Danish teams exited from a Cessna Caravan at their national championships last weekend. The meet videos from Denmark are showing that the VAF Warriors did not launch one complete exit formation in the 8-round meet and invested some extra time to build the first formation of each sequence.

The part of the world meet leaderboard where the VAF Warriors will battle with opponents from other countries is usually a crowded one. The teams around the 15-average level are too far from the Top 10 level, which opens the door to the semifinals and Round 9. However, there is tough competition almost everywhere on a world meet leaderboard.
The scores and rankings of the Mondial Dubai 2012 provide an idea of what can be expected for teams on this part of the leaderboard in Prostejov, such as the VAF Warriors and the Bad Boys. The list of currently registered teams presents the potential opponents.
|Mondial Dubai 2012||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4||Round 5||Round 6||Round 7||Round 8||Total||Avg|

|16||Dubai Asaar Red (AE)||16||20||16||12||15||16||18||13||126||15.8|

This also means that it might become easier to get closer to the Top 10 spots and place higher than two years ago. However, the nations in the first 12 places in Dubai 2012 are all back with the same or new lineups. Qatar, Switzerland and Brazil will miss the meet and offer Dubai Asaar's 4-way team the opportunity to move up.
China and Spain have not registered 4-way Open Class teams, which may allow VAF Warriors and Bad Boys to place better for their countries. Monaco's Vitalsea 4-way team will also miss this world meet and not be a threat for the teams around the 15-average level. Sweden and South Africa have new teams in Prostejov, and all teams on a 16-point average level might be battling for the last slot in the semifinals...
