    Are the 3 battle competitions that have had a high number of events with alot of talent involved. Having any of those 3 on your resume as a Canadian battler is a solid accolade

    Definitely. I sent you an email a while back when you asked about it. I had remembered you said you'd be willing to write a passage for it or something. I hope you're still willing, because that would be dope as fuck if you could. Everyone in the contributor's section will get a portrait as well (yourself, Illz, Drect, Kevin Beacham, Wendy Day, Harry from Jumpoff, etc).

    I'll wait for a different photo as well, lol.

    I'll resend that email.

    No rush man, I still have a ways to go, so you have plenty of time to get it how you want.

    Also thanks for letting me know about the Canadian leagues/tourneys. I'll probably just put one in. So Proud 2 be eh Battle MC was the biggest one?

    I agree Adeem isn't that nice, but he won Scribble twice. That automatically puts him in (at least imo)

    Pro green is overrated, but in all honesty I always thought he was kind of dope. However it doesn't matter who I think is dope, I tried to ignore my personal opinions when I put it together. Regardless, Pro Green has triple digit wins at the jumpoff stage battles, and only like 6 losses. That along with the fact that he had arguably the biggest impact on UK battling puts him in for me.

    Jin is overrated yes, but to say he's not top 50 is ridiculous. I could give the reasons why, but I would hope I don't have to.

    Appreciate it. (unless that post is sarcastic, in which case, that's mean)

    Also, lol at the "respek ba lied to you" tag. I'm assuming whomever wrote it is referring to his name. I saw "Nicky Tesla" somewhere on one of his fliers or something. So I put it on there with the intention of changing it, but I haven't gotten around to it. If anyone knows his real name and could give it to me that'd be appreciated.

    Dude what you gave me is PERFECT. This is exactly what I'll need for both the book and the card. Its also good, because now I'll have kind of a skeleton to write the ones like Busy Bee that would be next to impossible to get.

    Posting that Anecdote shouldn't be on the list because he has only 2 battles (to your knowledge) outside of the WRC is retarded. If you haven't seen many battles of someone, rather than assuming they don't exist, go and look for them. Common sense

    Here is an example of the back of a card. I looked at a few baseball cards to sort of get the text similar. At the bottom are three notable accolades. Obviously most of the battlers on the list have more than three accolades, but it would be difficult to fit more on there, so I'm choosing to go with the three that are most impressive.

    In the book each battler will have an entire spread that is his or hers, so there I will be able to fit an entire page bio, the other accolades, and so forth. (I'll post an example of a spread from the book soon).

    Also it should be noted the printed version of all of this will look far more crisp. As you can see the text isn't as clear on the back of the card, but this is merely because I had to make the pics a lower resolution in order to be viewed quickly on this site. The program I'm doing them in, everything looks fine.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Also, below the accolades you can see the logo I created for the overall project. Its going to be small on the cards of course, but here is a larger view of it that will show up in other places.
