I wonder if the chokes will be edited out.
That's a good point. When Poison Pen make the video addressing Daylyt's blog about the edited chokes, he did make an offer to RBN to look over the footage before they release it.
I hope they take him up on the offer because those are the sort of things that people outside of the culture might not realize is part of the sport. I understand they are trying to make it look clean but when you completely take out a choke you change the narrative of how the battle happened and that is a slippery slope.
Especially considering Bigg K's choke right out of the gate, and Real Deal choking for the first time possibly since battling Tut. As much as RBN probably wants it to look clean, like you said, taking those chokes out messes with the narrative of the battle.
I haven't reviewed any footage. They did not take me up on the offer.
I agree chokes should stay. They partially determine a battle's outcome.
Dropping on the same day as Surf/Hollow may not be good *shrugs*
@Calvin has a point. I think most battle rap fans will check both, though.
That's too bad.
Hopefully they at least realize where their mistake was in cutting it out like that though.
Lol as if this will stop fans from watching either/both?! Who cares what day they drop. If fans wanna watch it, fans will watch it, regardless of whether 10 battles come out on the same day. That's like saying you're not gonna watch Avengers 2 because World War Z came out on the same day (obviously hypothetical).
Either way, invalid point.
