(RBL Rules and Regulations Guidelines) Failure To Recognize Or Abide By ANY Of These Rules Will Result In The Given Penalty That Regulates The Rules. And Continuous Bitching, Whining, And Excessive Complaining Will Result In Your Termination From RBL Until A Mod See's Fit For You To Return. No Questions Asked Policy. You Break A Rule. You Pay The Price Period. NO EXCEPTIONS. Dont Care If Your Janitor/Jeff. Now On To The Complete Rules And Regulations. -BATTLES ARE DUE FRIDAY, MIDNIGHT EASTERN! (meaning if you post at 12:01am, you are late) -VOTES ARE DUE SUNDAY, 10pm EASTERN (late votes will not count) -Each battler is allowed to up their threads TWICE in a match. before the battler(s) is penalized -1 vote for each up after the entitled amount. Upping: (vote count,discussing votes,or just replying period) -You MUST vote on 6 battles EACH week & EDIT the vote links in your "check in" posts. Failure to vote on ALL 6 will result in a deduction of votes for the links you're missing. Meaning.. you drop 4 links, you LOSE 2 votes automatically. -Mininum Lines: 4 (2 Couplets)/ Max. Lines: 30 (15 Couplets)! Also, battlers MUST agree on the amount of lines to be written for each verse. If not, whoever drops first determines the MAX line amount. For example, If I drop 16 first, without agreeing my opponent cannot go MORE than 16 lines. If YOU DO go over the maximum line limit set. YOU LOSE -1 Vote For Each Couplet Over ** In a 3-Way Battle The Maximum Line Limit Is 20 Lines/10 Couplets ** In a 4-Way Battle The Maximum Line Limit Is 10 Lines/5 Couplets -NO EDITING your verse AFTER BOTH verses have been posted. EDITING your post after both rhymes have been posted will result in an immediate DQ. Dont matter if your editing spelling or a fucking PERIOD. Its a DQ. No Questions Asked. -Late verses will result in an AUTOMATIC disqualification, don't even care if it's 5 minutes late. Even if s mod late with closing the no shows, the deadline will still be enforced. --Closed battles are finalized. Unless the mod made a mistake in closing your thread, any problem regarding the battle AFTER it has been closed..you will have to deal with it. But../If the mod just messed up something, then it's cool for it to be changed. IF YOU BREAK A RULE, IT'S YOUR FAULT AND YOURS ALONE!! -If you BITCH or it is DEEMED you are SWAYING VOTES. You will be deducted -10 Votes. End Of Story. - In a 3-WAY Battle. If Both Your Opponents Show And You Beat Them Then You Get 2 WINS. If ONE opponent shows and you win then you get 1 WIN only!!. - In a VERY rare occasion that there is a 4-WAY Battle. The Same Rules Apply. 3 Opponents Show and You Beat Em'. Thats 3 WINS. 2 Show and You Beat Them. Thats 2 Wins. 1 Shows You Get 1 WIN - No Biting Rhymes EVER. If its found out that you bit aka plagarized someone elses work. Then you are Terminated From the RBL for good or until a mod sees fit to let you return. EXTENSIONS: You must hit up a MOD or Sequel on AIM prior to the deadline and give us a good reason as to why you will need a ONE DAY extension. -3 Votes will be deducted from your battle if you do in fact need an extension. ***If your opponent has been granted an extension, you too can use this extended period of time*** All extensions will be 24 hours AT MOST. -NO 1 Sentence Voting ALL VOTES MUST BE ATLEAST 5 LINES LONG. Explaining Who You Thought Won Or It WONT COUNT. My Motto Is If You Cant Vote Right Why Should You Deserve Someone Voting On Your Battle And IF the person who voted DIDNT explain his vote like he's suppose to then he'll LOSE A VOTE on his battle. Yes. Quoting A Battler Counts As A Line But You MUST Quote Atleast Something From Each Battler. And THERE MUST Be A Explanation Behind Them. Breakdowns By Couplets Are Still Allowed. These Are The Rules And Regulations. THE RBL NO BULLSHIT NO REMORSE NO TOLERANCE POLICY IS NOW IN EFFECT. That Means No EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULES TO ANYONE. MOD AIM CONTACTS: -DisHonouR - DH La Dynasty -Demik - Akademik416 -SeQueL - AxeSense -headless verseman -headlessverseman Sincerly, RBL Staff ****Rbl Championship Match Preview**** I no showed last week giving Dishonour the victory. I was having a great time, ah well...I was signin out anyway. Dishonour has had 3 shitty battles in a row now, with people no showing, not battling, or just being bullshit. I think this will HELP him however, because he should be fresh. The old addage, player's play is true. Iverson said, "ya'll talking about PRACTICE". the past few weeks for dissy have been just that, and to be honest, when the lights turn on, there's a sell out crowd, im POSITIVE he'll show up. Doc Richards, whooooo?? Dont even play man, he's cool. Needs to up the ante on the personals, god knows I WOULD HAVE TORE DISSY A NEW ASSHOLE WITH THEM IF I WERE HOME. Doc's seen what has happened, and he SHOULD have an arsenal of punches. FAIR WARNING TO BOTH BATTLERS. NO BULLSHIT, AND NO EXTENSIONS. YES, I SAID IT. NOOOOOOOOOO EXTENSIONS. i dont care if the maffia cuts off your hands on friday night, you will NOT be given an extension under ANY circumstances. Which leads me to my next point. REcently, Rbl Champ matches has been shitty, even one's that happened. Why? People wait till Friday at 8 pm to write. DONT> Bring heat and show heads why you DESERVE to be the Rbl Champ. Battle Forecast- 2 undefeated heads, who CANT get an extension. Should be dopeness, thas all I'll say.
