Text Battleground Changes

Post by JDR » Wed Nov 30, 2011 5:54 am

Aiight folks. Here’s what we gon’ do. The battlegrounds needs an upgrade so I’ve made changes. I’ll be short and sweet because nobody likes reading long paragraphs. A lot of ppl has thrown around dope ideas and we’ll implement those once we adapt some kind of system / foundation.

So……

General / House Rules. I hate rules too but we gotta have ‘em. A lot of this stuff is your standard, introduction type stuff but pay attention to the voting rules.

Championship Belts: Yeah. We got ‘em but it’s a horrible system so I changed it. Starting now, champions got to defend their belts twice a month. Two text battles a month isn’t really that much and it gives a chance for other people to become champion sooner when we got a system set up.

Ranking System: All battles closed from here on out will rank you. It’s not fair for the champ to get appointed an opponent every time he defends so during a month, he can face whoever he wants and then at the end of the month, he faces the top contender in the ranking system. So basically, you got a month to get ya battles up and earn a shot at the title.

Submitting Verses Together. I asked around to different admins and got told that the best way to do this is submit these verses to Speakers. To my understanding, Speakers is a couple of individuals who do behind the scene stuff, the mag, and they are anonymous . How many times have you dropped a verse and had someone no show you or thought someone extended the due date just to top the verse you just dropped? Probably a lot because it happens a lot. This eliminates this and makes it 100% fair. And because there is more than 1 of these dudes, we shouldn’t have to wait for them to submit our verses. No possible chance of countering or being no shown because you got a dope verse. Win-Win for us.

Sooooo that’s it. This starts tomorrow and all the appropriate threads will be in place by then. Just a general background of where we are heading in this section. We gon’ do a lot of dope things. Anyways, comments, questions? Nope? Okay Good day.

What if the champ says no, or simply isnt anywhere to be found?

If they don't defend then they aint champion anymore. I don't know who 3rdstringqb is but I dont think scott would have a problem battlin' twice a month, especially since he's pickin' his opponent on one of those matches

and ranking as in wins, ko's.

No. The champ has to defend the belt twice a month. First title defense, he can battle whoever he wants. 2nd time has to be the number 1 contender.

I like the idea with sending ya verse to a middle man.which imo should be a trusted source obviously, then they can copy paste it when its due... Its same wit goldmic. Ya dont get to see the other verse until deadline.then they both drop same time...

speakers is anonymous??? id put money on it that within "speakers" are: alvin, Murk, quix, monu or glamtrash.... so how can it really be 100 percent fair? seems like a needless thing to do to me tbh. there should just be a time limit enforced like there is already, but a stricter more thorough one that must be adhered to and once posted verses should not be allowed to be removed or edited.
