Make your sets better.....You see what it takes to win from all the teams that place at these competitions. If your set is boring no one will comment on it. If your set is exciting and people can see it form the video, then someone will make a comment. I'm sure a lot of new teams see what it really takes to win by watching youtube videos and should be incorporating those formulas when making their sets. Overall get better and you will get respect and comments.
I think thats a faulty argument-half the time views don't even pile up on videos and secondly-you're telling people that getting feedback-which can make them better-is dependent on them being already good/entertaining/interesting. The biggest problem I see with new teams is that their concept of entertaining/hype is either derivative or just plain not as cool as they think it is-I think that's why feedback is necessary-so that they can get an outside, objective view on concepts that they im sure busted their ass on
