    2. Recap

    This week, there were several good matches. Let’s see how everyone finished.

    Redeemed – The second line confused me about whether you meant quiet wife or quiet life instead of quite wife. The rhymes in this piece were nice and the flow was good. The story was good but I did not like how u had the wife speak. It wasn’t very realistic of a full grown woman saying “me me and me”. I would’ve liked you being more realistic in this verse but it was still a nice showing. I’m still shocked you actually showed up here lol.

    T.a.C vs. Urizen – This match-up was pretty even. Both writers had good stories but both seem to spend too much time rhyming instead of telling a story. This hindered both verses. Urizen had good potential with his verse but the rhyming made his verse drag on and on while T.a.C. just didn’t go into any kind of detail about this. The voters like Urizen’s verse the best in a 3-2 victory but since one voter voted late, it ended up being a 2-2 tie.

    ShadowWarriorfs vs. Got Life? – This is round two when in round one, Shadow shut out GL. This time however, was slightly different. Granted, only two people voted but both readers liked both verses. Both Shadow and GL had opposite styles of writing. GL wrote a nice with good mechanics and good story while Shadow took a more simplistic route and had a great story. Both readers like both verse but went in opposite directions when voting. This ended in a 1-1 tie.

    MordridDeschain vs. Killaeffect – This match-up was REALLY one-sided. Killa’s verse was terribly written and the poor spelling just hurt him tremendously. Mordrid, on the other hand, wrote a nice consistent verse with a good story and good imagery. The readers all agree that MD killed it this week and it showed in a 5-0 shutout victory.

    icon vs. oNeRiC – This week in the number one contenders match, icon was looking to advance to the title match. He wrote a verse that was just completely well written and nicely delivered. oNe did a lot of good things with his story as well but is style just wasn’t up to par with iCon’s. icon headed up winning this match-up in a 2-0 shutout victory.

    Memento vs. Atreyu – Atreyu defended his gold against the new hotness, Memento. Both writers wrote very good verse but both seemed to have difficulty developing their story. Atreyu’s verse was nice but just seemed to drag on a little while Memento seemed to focus more on rhyming then anything else. Both writers had a good flow and all but the readers felt that Memento’s verse was slightly better as Memento becomes the New RSTL Champion in a 2-1 victory. [kat][kat][kat][​IMG] [kat][kat][kat]

    3. Battle of the Week
    ShadowWarriorfs

    Write about the life of someone in the league (could be a diss or not)

    It’s been about a few years since I’ve been laid
    A skinny kid with ears that provide miles of shade
    I was just rejected by a girl I thought loved me
    Gave her my heart as she ripped it apart like a dummy
    Emotions ran high as I began to express my anger
    Persona has changed, yet my figure didn’t present a danger
    So I grabbed the dumb bells and weights, as I began to pump
    “I’ll show them!” I thought, “I’ll show them I’m no chump
    Months have passed, muscle mass has increase drastically
    Now I was in control, soul restored, “well practically”
    I mumbled as I stare into the mirror admiring myself
    Everything was in good shape, clean and in good health
    But I notice that my body wasn’t right in some way
    Glaring into my reflection, what was it? I couldn’t look away
    Was it that my head was smaller or something
    It kind of looks like a pea sitting on a pumpkin
    I shrugged it off, women will respect me now
    Give me love but they still treated me just as foul
    Searching the Internet to help relieve some stress
    Spitting game to online whores, still feeling sexually repressed
    I call Nasty a stupid fat fuck but maybe I’m just obsessed
    Depressed about the way all my friends had left
    So I became cold heated and bullied my way to the top
    Calling youngsters garbage so they’d beg me to stop
    I was dominance, the alpha, the supreme being
    So I complain about everything, text seems to be screaming
    The ultimate physical male form, everyone else is just faggots
    Secretly crying myself to sleep, begging to fall in my casket
    Now I’ve become dazed, talking to myself as I sit at a stoplight
    “Being an e-bully doesn’t make sense, I wonder if I ‘Got Life?’”

    vs

    Got Life?

    "You went out with that girl today right?"
    "My God. When I saw her it was like…"

    Explosions inducing a symphony of romantic expressions,
    I was frantic in my confessions during introductory sessions,
    Standing transfixed with glassy eyes as talk resumed,
    Like my heart and soul were instantly consumed within her womb,
    Lingering upon every note her voice would attain,
    And I didn't refrain from divulging a heart full of pain,
    Looking for some sympathetic adulation since I had an infatuation,
    But she countered me with cramps caused by her menstruation,
    Oh what a temptation, as we traversed upon a moonlit beach,
    As I walked mesmerized with such an angel within reach.

    "Yea, that's great to hear man, so tell me more."
    "Seconds, you know. The day went on like…"

    The intoxication of frozen roses surrounded our rendezvous,
    While cupid strummed a golden harp as he casually flew,
    As I became engulfed within the ocean that is she,
    She gave me glimmers of a beauty that overpowered history,
    Not even Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, Eve, or Aphrodite,
    Could dispense me of the longing that I have for my dear Heidi,
    As constellations froze within the twinkle in her gaze,
    I moved beyond lovers gone that once had sparked my craze,
    Her essence holding such a glorious surreal demeanor,
    Yet no matter what I said or did, nothing could deceive her,

    "Wow bro..sounds like things went great. I'm glad to hear you're dating again."
    "It lasted an eternity. Basically though she was like…"

    Withdrawn, as though she was trapped in quarrel over a wager lost,
    Apparently I had to pay the cost to de-thaw her veins of frost,
    As she scornfully gazed down upon me like I was a menace to her peace,
    Anxiously counting down the seconds until the day would cease,
    Shaking with animosity as a putrid look came upon her face,
    Making it seem as though she'd readily abolish grace from her embrace,
    And how her eyes turned serpentine giving me a cold hearted shoulder,
    As if she wished she could smother me beneath a boulder,
    So as the date moved past the climax at a crashing pace,
    She fanned away my wish to kiss and slapped me in the face!

    "And that was that man."
    "You're still talking like you're in love with her?"
    "Damn. Head over heels my friend. Head over heels."

    Kim
    JIM

    He lived the American dream, had everything a man could want
    A quite wife, big house couple cars in front/
    Every day he’d leave; suit n tie brief-case in hand
    Flying on their love, not caring about a place to land/
    On a paper chase.. runnin thru sands tryin’ to provide
    His white collar was earnin dollars while wifey was dying inside/
    Materialistic and empty, she was always lusting for more
    Everyday that he got paid she’d quickly rush to the stores/
    So effortlessly she’d over charge..max out his credit cards
    Trying to fill her void by buying things he couldn’t afford/
    He worked hard for the whore and got nothing in return
    Just developed a short fuse from always being burned/
    Soon he learned that askin for compassion was too big of a task-when
    Her only concern is being wrapped-in the latest fashions/
    He though their love was everlastin’ “till death do us part”
    But death did it part when it ripped out his heart /
    He should've saw it from the start… but the braud was a mirage
    The whole time“her love”was just a facade /
    Then he lost is job, the cars and the house was foreclosed
    Her being such a snob she couldn’t keep composed /
    What about Me Me and Me and what about my clothes”!?
    All he could think was “damn I shouldn’t of proposed to this hoe /
    should have never took her hand in marriage with a ring and a rose
    So he replied with a sigh and said what needed to be exposed"/
    -"Well that was my house, my food and my cups that you drank from
    Thanks hun,…. its your fault that im bankrupt!/
    You skank-slut I was such a fool to marry you
    Now the situation has varied, and all I want to do is burry you/
    Its very true… your shoppin sprees, brought me to my knees
    Honey please....- money doesn’t grow on trees"/

    Then of course.. they both finally filed for divorce
    she met a rapper who drives a Porsche and is endorsed by the Source/
    feelin forced.. completely.. compelled by his cash
    and hopin.. reluctantly.. this new “lap of luxury will last”/
    but it was killed fast.. like they crashed doin 180 on the dash
    cause after he smashed, Kim quckly became just a thing of the past/
    But Jim was workin his ass off- blood, sweat and tears on the asphalt
    The recession took his blessins’ –there was no money for the cash vault/
    Wishin he could blast off.. and leave everything behind
    But his heart, spirit and mind is stuck in the sands of time/
    Feelin past his prime, only 30 years old but his soul is so cold
    Because he lives a greedy world with nobody to hold
    Downcast and distraught.. feelin like a lona
    He headed to the store for a scratch off a some Coronas/
    On his way back to his lot.. to kick it in the big thicket
    He cracks open a bottle and scratches and winning ticket /
    The ticket read that he won 5 mill which is actually 2 ½
    Now hes ten steps ahead of where started at/
    Rejuvenated and revived while Kim stays haten
    Cuase he’s stylin on the islands on A permanent vacation/

    5. Matchups

    CHAMPIONSHIP
    C. Memento 4-0
    2. iCon. 4-0

    Predictions – This week Memento defends his newly won title against icon who is coming off a big win. Memento has been writing pretty consistently but this week I believe icon will upset him and take the title in a 3-1 victory.


    CONTENDERSHIP
    3. MordridDeschain 2-0
    4. Got Life? 2-0

    Prediction - This match-up will be interesting and depending on how serious GL takes this match will depend on who win. I believe that Mordrid will give this a good go but in the end, GL will take the 3-1 victory

    5. ShadowWarriorfs 16-13
    6. Urizen 6-4

    Prediction – This is the first time these guys have gone up against each other and this match-up could go either way and I believe it’ll be a very good match-up. I think Urizen will take this in a 3-2 win.

    7. T.a.C 9-6
    8. Redeemed 1-0

    Predictions – This match-up will be interesting and this will all depend whether Redeemed decides to show up. This could be a very nice match-up. T.a.C has become better over the weeks but seem to take a step back last week. Redeemed seems to be his normal self but I think Redeem will win in a 4-2 win.

    9. -Atreyu- 6-1
    10. oNeiRiC 2-4

    Prediction – After coming off losses, both of these writers are looking to rebound and get back to their winning way. Atreyu is a former champion and is looking to make his way back into the title match. This week I believe Atreyu will win, 3-0.

    11. Nique... 0-0
    12. warsaw deluxe 0-0

    Prediction – Both will no show

    8. T.a.C-tical Interviews – Instead of an interview this week, here are a list of this weeks faggots.

    No Show Faggots – Soull & TeKneeK
    Non Voting faggots – icon, Memento, Redeemed and Killa
    T.a.C – you are a faggot for only voting on one battle, AGAIN and never doing an interview. I would normal wish that your penis be burned and chopped off but since you never will or ever will use it, it seems kind of pointless.


    9. Grinds My Gears – You know what really grinds my gears, Piff’s lack of sports intellect. It wouldn’t bother me so much if dude hype himself up to be such a genius. I mean I’ve seen a lot of people think they’re team is great but dude is completely blinded by common sense and logic. If you guys do not know who he is, I suggest you look him up. I guarantee you’ll get a good laugh out of it. That is what really grinds my gears.

    10. Conclusion – This week was completely terrible week for voting. It seems that the same faggots are not voting. I’m not sure why you guys are doing this but I am thinking about subtracting more points for not voting(more then the 5 points) and increasing the amount of points gained for voting on all battles. Also, I’m still looking for anyone who would like to write something for the magazine. Just let me know by PMing me your article. Good luck to everyone this week.

    there were no voters available to kiss my ass.

    there were 2 votes, both of which were half assed votes to say the least.

    i'm continuing my mantra of "the league is shit" until it stops being shit and that's not happening until there's at least 8 good writers and 20 heads consistently dropping.

    being that now with pain and inf signing in, there are 3 good writers, and there's about 6 people showing consistently, the league has a long fuckin way to go, oh and the topics suck horse cock, but i have a good idea for this week anyway.

    the league is moving because people want to write, some of you don't appreciate feedback so you don't really give it, and that makes sense. I for one love feedback and have got something to work on every week.

    my verse is up for this week btw, and if anyone wants to give me feedback before Atreyu drops that would be much appreciated

    nice mag and i'll get you an article soon hopefully that would be cool, pz

    here is the link, just pm me with feed

    big block of text = unappealing to read.

    that's my first gripe, didn't read it to give you anymore insight.

    also your rhymes are pointless being that your bars are so stretched.

    unless you're twista there's no way you're fitting those lines into bars.

    strong lack of a rhyme scheme, etc.

    you should lose this week.
